Hi folks,

Only very recently started playing with elite, and just got my new joystick for it. Of course I am still playing with the key mappings for the joystick. However as soon as I leave the station I can no longer use the F2 key to get into the joystick menu.
Is there any way around this? I find myself in the middle of a fight, realise I need to tweak something but have to quit and load a new game to do so (or abandon the fight and try and escape back to a station).

Also, once i've left the station if I decide I want to quit the game, or load a new savegame I cannot do it without flying back to a station (a drag) or force closing oolite and restarting it. I am quite happy with the idea of not being able to save a game when out in space, but having to force quit just to load a new game is a pain.

Not sure if this is by design or if I am just missing something.

Thanks in advance

Jon

The information you seek is included in the documentation in the game.

Hit P to pause - you can then access the options screen, where you should be able to access everything other than save and load commander.

Yup - though the fastest way to reload the last saved game is to kill oneself, the game will then omit loading for the default "new game". :)

Cheers Cap'n, that's done the trick. Just need to get the hand of flying with a joystick now!

I think you can start a new commander too.
