Not 100% how the in-game grouping and so on works yet - as in don't know if you play together to achieve goals or against each other or what but would be nice to do some group stuff if we can. Private grouping is in the game right now, I just haven't tried it yet.

Commander Guddler (surprise, surprise).

What's yours??

OK, Tidied the thread up. This is not a thread for people that don't have access to the current beta phase of the game, or to express dislike at the games charging model. However, if you DO have access to the game, please feel free to participate.

As previously mentioned, if you have already purchased the game and wish to upgrade that purchase to one that includes beta access, it will cost you £15 - discount applied at checkout. Yes, that's a questionable business model but if you check out the ED forums you will find why they did that and I actually agree with it.

I went for the premium beta in the end, as you receive all the updates/expansion as they release them. Haven't had much time to get my teeth into the game properly, but I'm glad the recent reset happened. Was getting fed up with peeps in anacondas camping the stations :)

Oh, very cool

Only thing i'd be concerned about with that is not being able to see the keyboard. But then there's always Voice Attack for the few commands you don't have joystick buttons for.

I'm seriously considering a 34" 21:9 PC monitor as my next upgrade but it will have to wait a while for finances. Especially given my machines aren't selling

I tried Commander Smeghead once the naming was active, but they refused it! grrr, so I had to change it.

Commander Cillet Bang

I'm not on the Beta... I'm waiting for the actual release before I even try it out.

you can change your Commander name here:

Have to confess, I'm finding it pretty dull at the moment, not to mention very buggy. But hey, Beta 2 is just round the corner and that's looking like it's going to be rather awesome

Only just noticed this thread...

I don't keep up with modern games, so didn't even know that this was in the pipeline, but that trailer brought back some memories!

Fingers crossed the game does justice to its heritage...

Backed it but barely had a chance to play the beta before xmas,
enjoying it so far, aside from the odd no-bounty bug.
Played original back in the 80's on the Speccy.

Cmdr Saunderson ..
Currently still fairly near to my starting system, LHS 3447 , Kremainn etc etc
Bumped into a Competent Wanted NPC in an Eagle earlier tonight..... called..... Tony Doyle :)

Picked this up yesterday, partly just so I could play with the headtracking I set up LOL

Pilot name is the same as here ZedEx48K, good thing is that co-op should be here in a month or 2 making meet ups worthwhile.

Yeh, the "Wings" update sounds like it should be fun, group attacks  on targets etc.

Oi oi Mr C.

I keep thinking I should go back to it. Especially since I have the lifetime expansion pass. I played it a lot when it was beta and by the time it came out I was bored and had moved on. Lesson learnt, don't play betas

I bought this about 2 months ago, installed it, switched it off, and have never come back to it.
I really need to make more of an effort to give it a go !

I'd just stick with keyboard/mouse for a bit until you climb the inital eiger north face learning curve.

You don't need a flight stick to trade or be picked off by bounty hunters.

I've been getting back into this over the last week or so, slowly upgrading my Viper , mostly just bounty hunting or kill the pirate missions from the bulletin boards.
