    1. HW1 formations don't work properly: ships will assemble in formation but then break formation when ordered to attack. Strike group formations are fine, however....

    Auto-harvesting appears to be a bit broken at the moment. A bunch of players were experimenting with it and it was all over the place.

    So far, whatever is in your harvesters when you end the...

    The lore in the Elite games is not tremendously detailed or coherent. In fact, it's fair to say that the original Elite takes place in its own self-contained universe, then Frontier and First...

    Capturing enemy ships in HW1 was absolutely not necessary to win the game. People would do it because it made the game incredibly easy from that point on (one reason for me not to do it), or for the...

    These weren't in the previous games, and I'm pretty certain they're only in it because of BSG, FIREFLY and other SF series in the last decade which have popularised the idea of guns in space.

    Important safety tip: deploy landing gear before entering the docking portal and don't retract until you've left. It keeps your speed down and should disable the boost as well.

    Combat I found relatively straightforward, and haven't even had to use the directional thrusters. Closing the distance to the enemy ship is key, and then when I overshoot I hit reverse and swing...

    I don't think the rights are such a huge problem. Gearbox has enough financial firepower they could probably overcome any such issues.

    The bigger problem is that the source code is missing. Rob...

    I'd be intrigued to know the definition of "a few years ago." I paid 34.99 for MONKEY ISLAND II in 1992, 29.99 for FRONTIER and SYNDICATE in 1993. 14.99-19.99 was the standard price for expansion...

    I meant they ballsed up the lore and backstory, not the gameplay. The gameplay was okay.
