Wow! and control improvement
« on: February 25, 2006, 02:20:44 pm »

 
     Well I was running through some old adventure games and ran across this game. I downloaded it and WOW!
  What a great game. I cant believe I missed this one. Im in the middle of programming a game for a competiition and this game has TOTALY  side tracked me.

A few questions   
1. I was wondering I f there was a schedule for mouse control being added ? I was looking around and could not find this.
2. Is there a way to make your ship stop or go backwards ? Other than turning around the other way and thrusting.
   Thanks in advance

1. We haven't got much of a schedule for anything.
2. What Kohr-Ah Death said.

Mouse control for the starmap seems like a popular idea and it may be added. However, controlling ships by mouse is not likely to be much better than by keyboard or joystick, so there seems to be little interest in implementing it.

Some ships you may pick up on the way have special abilities that allow them to stop or go backwards without turning. Most ships, however, including your flagship, can only thrust forwards.
