Back to the original problem. If you have a low framerate for some reason the keyboard becomes very insensitive, this is because the keyboard events are only polled between frames. I've had this when I managed to mess up my opengl setup, it was almost impossible to dock using the keyboard. I'm still...

In a major battle your space compass can be damaged, so finding the space station on the dark side would be impossible. (being a pc user I'm a bit twitchy about space compasses) Even with the most basic space compass, if you fly to the planet it then changes to guide you to the station. With regard...

It's all hard-coded at the moment, so the ships presented by missions always appear at the center of the screen, and ships on the shipyard screen always in the correct place. In fact the center of the model is positioned in 3d space relative to the player's viewpoint. It could be possible to write ...

zone serial makes no difference and then it only matters when you have secondary NS servers doing ixfr.

If you're using *unix and you install postgresql it kindly installs man pages on SQL for you. Most of which is applicable to mysql. Alternatively the postgresql documentation is available online, I find it slightly easier to use than the mysql documentation. Yes I am completely biased in favour of p...
