Well, when I first ran 1.71, I got the message that BehemothSpaceWar and UPS-Courier are not compatible. Not sure if I do have the latest versions of these. Behemoth - 1.0 (states will not work with versions higher than 1.70 in readme) UPS - 1.3.8 + 1.70bugfix (will that still be required?)) It seem...

Graphical Glitch in 1.71

When I use the test release of 1.71, I get the following mangled characters: - http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/8468/oolite001iv4.png I think that this is related to my rubbish GFX card (ATI Rage 128 Pro, 16 MB VRAM), and the resolution (1024 x 768) I've set up as I've seen this in other games bef...

Cheers!
Got it, and will dutifully hammer it hard for bugs tonight.
My lovely vegetable pasanda should be cooked about now, so I'll go for a fly when I'm full.

Re: Odd things I've seen

2) While mining I found a white radar map item that turned out to be a cobra III just floating there. ID did not reveal any info for it either. I watched it for some time. eventually I blasted it. A ghoast ship? A flying Dutchman? This sounds like it could be related to this bug: - http://aegidian....

@elite:
Thanks for the tip on Leesti being the place to go for mining.
I've been thinking of donning my miner's cap for a while, and now I know where to start!
Assuming you've left a few asteroids for us newbies that is ;-)

I think that reporting bugs will definitely be helpful - as long as you ensure that it has not already been reported! That's about all that I currently do to help; as I'm still learning how to make OXPs - but that could take a while. The only other thing I do is slight amendments to the WIKI, such a...

. . . in the Mac version you don't use the F-keys, but the number keys (at least that's what I do). So press 5 instead of F5. They both work. The number keys (1, 2, 3 etc) do the same thing as the function keys (F1, F2, F3 etc). Good job too, as the Function keys are a pain to access on my PowerBoo...

Well I like it ;-)
I think it's probably OK to advertise free software like MAME too.
Also thought that by the time of Elite, MAME might be allowing us to play oldies like Halo 2, and Gran Turismo 4, etc
