I remember something similar way back when...

I remember the need to have a very flexible joystick back during my Wing Commander days. In the mean time, maybe some one can give me a helping hand with mapping my keyboard. I am running under Ubuntu 8.10, and I have mapped my keyboard to swap with the control key with the caps lock key. I would li...

Definitely the latter

Unfortunately, my hands don't work well as they used to, therefore, my ability to jump around the keyboard has been very restricted. Something that locks and follows doesn't mean that there is a dead lock on the target, but it does follow the movement of the target and with minimal keyboard interact...

Auto tracking a target

A couple of days ago, I was chasing down a pain in the ass Cobra pilot, and it turned into a prolonged battle. I finally chalked up another kill, but I started to think to myself, like would be so much easier if I could lock onto a target and match moves on the target automatically. This would allow...

Readers

Normally,I would lean towards an open converter, but considering that I read on a WM 6, MS Readers seems to allow for decent viewing on that device...

Other formats for books

I do a lot of my reading on the go, so I have a crapload of e-books on my phone (HTC VX6800) with 16G of MMC. I know that the books are in PDF format, but is there anyway to do other formats... I am thinking either MS Reader or even Palmdoc format (pdb).
Just a passing thought!

In addition to the Great Captain H's words - I'd add that some planets seem to mass lock you further out than others (i.e. early on Leesti - you get pretty close - Diso - loooong way away (at least with Diso.oxp installed - don't know if this is true for normal Diso system) I often aim for the stat...

Thanks for the info...

I finally found my buoy and from there found the station... But it does take a good deal of time even at highest rate of speed to get to the station. Once I get a mass lock, I am pretty stuck, huh.

Please help a wayward and lost commander

Alright... I can remember playing Elite on an Apple ][e, for those who remember the days. So I jump on my Linux version of Oolite (Ubintu 8.10, and sporting 1.72 Oolite) and life is somewhat great. Of course, there is a slight problem. It took me a few time to master making my way into a Station in ...

A possible deb???

I made the mistake of dumping 1.65 (from the repository) and building the 1.71-2 package. That failed miserably! I was looking at the posting and was getting ready to install from source, but wondered if anyone had created a deb for 1.72 in order to make installation a snap?

Misadventures with Ubuntu 8.10 and nightly build

Deciding to be a little bold, I decided to dump the 1.65 version that was on the Ubuntu repository and move up to 1.72. The autopackage worked nicely, but as soon as I started oolite I received this: kcc@unixjedi:~/packages# oolite --debug oolite.app/oolite: relocation error: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libr...
