Re: Music in flight ?

Sure it would be easy enough to hack someone else's work, but morally its not something I like doing. Potentially I might be more inclined to code my own radio exp, but as winamp is working really well and I don't have much free time, might just be lazy until something is done 'properly'. The 80s mu...

Re: Music in flight ?

I did get excited when I saw the hyperadio, but I feel I don't mind it costing money, but to have to keep buying a licence is just wrong. My solution was to run winamp in the background and just listen to an radio stream... In someways it works almost a little too good and when the stations come int...

Just missed out on the ship I wanted

Does anyone know if there is any logic behind which ships appear where when you are looking to buy? I don't have lots of funds, but I have enough to pick up the cheap Cobra Miner ship. I noticed it on a milk run and by the time I had got the money together the ship had gone. Given enough time, will ...

Re: How do you play Oolite?

As mentioned in other posts, have only just started the game after a break.. But this time once I have enough working capital, will be looking to explore, pirate hunting, mining and then for the crack smuggle. Finding a lot of the x's in Oolite really addictive and am thinking of upgrading my PC to ...

Best method to escape a pirate

Just wondered if anyone had any escape from pirate techniques.. Just started in the game, means I don't have money to really defend myself and at the moment I point myself towards the planet and spin + tumble, which stops them hitting me, but it takes forever to get to the stations... I have tried j...

Re: Introduction and questions

To be fair I took the Radeon out of my desktop and the integrated gfx seems to hold its own, but that might be because I'm not using any of the texture packs. Suspect the Radeon is barely better than integrated gfx (intel HD 4600) Current spec Eset for anti virus (only state this because its really ...

Introduction and questions

Ok lets start at the beginning, back in the mists of time I was young and first played Elite on the Amiga, when I went over to the pc I played Oolite but finding the graphics crude compared to x beyond the frontier I got seduced by the German classic. More recently I payed out too much for Elite Dan...
