It does remind me, though - what is the Energy bar in the HUD about? Vipers don't have shield or weapon energy.


It's a hold over from FS2. There were plans to possibly turn it into a gun heat monitor but in the end we decided that it wasn't needed.

If you fire too much you run out of ammo. Then you die. No need for any other limit on guns.

It isn't gliding at full speed that is the problem. It is gliding at turbo speed that is the problem. It was a bug in Wing commander too. If you turbo to 240 m/s, and hit glide, you can continue to run in that direction at a speed you can't hit normally.

Actually, as somebody already pointed out, AB should be incremental anyway (at least in Newtonian physics...). Since it's pseudo-Newtonian, I don't have a problem with that.

Btw, Congrats to the best thing since RDM ;)
It really catches the feeling I was looking for. Tough, rough and just plain thrilling.

This is my first space sim/dogfight game since X-Wing and I really enjoy it. Although I had the same problems as some of the other Nuggets, with ammo running out and really big difficulties hitting anything. But even after 2-3 tries it's getting better. I even managed to shoot Scar down to less than 50% in my last run-through (I know, I'm a noob... ;)

So, all you fellow noobs: as more experienced pilots have already pointed out, play around with Sensitivity and Deadzone, get a good joystick (sure, this is a matter of personal taste) and train, train, train.

Keep up the wonderful work and thanks for letting us all be part of this.

No problem, glad you're enjoying the demo.

Just don't bump up old topics to tell us though. Quite a few forumites find that annoying. Anything more than a month old should probably be left in peace. :)

Oops... sorry, won't happen again (that is, after this reply ;) )
