BBC ELITE Function Strip

Hi.

If you're playing ELITE on the PC, then this strip might come in handy.

I've included useful information on it as well.

ELITE Gameplay Question

Hi All. Has anyone been playing ELITE recently, or can remember what happens? I got a mission to chase a stolen ship, which has done a galaxy jump. I did a galaxy jump to follow and there have been no other messages and I've not come across the stolen ship. Been in this galaxy for ages - still nothi...

Re: Elite - Galactic Hyperdrive

It's OK, everyone.

The instructions I found on-line said to press 'G' and then 'H'.

I've found the original Instruction Manual.
And you press CTRL+H to engage Galactic Hyperdrive.

Problem solved!!!

Elite - Galactic Hyperdrive

I'm playing Elite on the PC. And I can't seem to use the Galactic Hyperdrive, to jump to the next Galaxy. I believe that, on the keyboard, you press 'G' and then 'H'. But, this seems to do nothing for me. You can see the equipment fitted to my ship in that attached image. I'm sure you have to leave ...

Re: Elite - The New Kind

So, my point is, why put in all the effort to update and add colour, but not have a Joystick option ? The simple answer is, I don't own a joystick. I have an xbox controller I use on my PC and have thought about adding support for that, but that's probably not the same as a joystick. The last joyst...

Re: Elite - The New Kind

I've got the source code somewhere as I started looking at porting it to the Pi co-pro. From memory, it uses the Allegro library for graphics and I/O so it should be fairly straightforward to add joystick support. I wish I had a clue what you are talking about!!! But, I don't. I just wish Elite - N...

Elite - The New Kind

I hope this is the correct forum to post this. I recently came across ' Elite - The New Kind ' http://www.new-kind.com/ A great job updating the original, from what I can see. Though I've not played it yet. Why? Well, I played the original Elite on the BBC Micro and used a Joystick to play. Maybe yo...

BBC B Games Icons

Hi Everyone. New to this forum, so, I'm hoping that I'm posting in the correct forum. I play some of my favourite BBC games on the BeebEm. And I thought I would make icons for these games. I've done 26 icons so far. There two icons for the Pacman/Snapper games. The one called Pacman is for the norma...

Hi from Rik

Hi Everyone. I had a BBC B Micro, back in 1984. Sadly, I got rid of it in 1991. Well, I've just got myself another BBC B and I was totally surprised to see that there are drives that take USB sticks and these drives will play .ssd files. OK. You're all going to ask where have I been all these decade...
