    Fly fast (by T9 standards) CMDR Bruski. The updated race is just waiting for 2.4 as the new pirate rum definitely has to be included. I'll need to go with booze and tobacco to ensure there's enough illegal items, but I won't be including narcotics.

    Errr ... ED missiles fly towards your current target yes? (sorry, don't use them much). And with headtracking or VR the Select Target Ahead binding selects what you're looking at and not what's directly in front of the ship. So elite does have this. Doesn't it?

    You see, this is what happens when you skim "New Posts", see a title like this one without reading who the OP is and assume it's just another whiner coming in here to tell us what's wrong with the game and why he's quitting. You nearly miss the most important post of the week. Crap Bran, this is a tragic loss to the forums. I shall genuinely miss your unique take on the week and refreshing reminders that we're all human. I'm lost for words and shall have to resort to interpretive dance to convey what you've contributed to these 'ere salt flats over the years. Happy travels commander (don't be stranger now ya' hear!) Oh, and what am I doing this weekend I hear you ask? I'm heading to the Edinburgh Fringe and I'm seeing the mighty Derevo (featured above) once again. Can't bloomin wait, pour me a gin!

    FWIW I'm on 122 and still in the top 50%. Probably dangerously close to top 25% according to that but I won't get another chance before tomorrow morning.

    P.S. I just remembered why I didn't pursue the amazon return. When I followed the "Start a return" process it took me to a list of "Your Orders". Many of the items in this list had a very encouraging "Return or Replace Items" button next to it. The Oculus order did not. I didn't take that as a good sign and pursued the Oculus route instead.

    It probably comes as no surprise that I like SRV racing. Here's a couple of examples (one of me and one of SRV driver extraordinaire Cmdr Nookie MrSmith). Links to race threads in the video descriptions. Both races are now over but I dare say we'll be hosting new ones soon.

    Really? I didn't have much luck finding an obvious link for Amazon support of this nature so I tried Oculus direct. What's the best contact for amazon for this kind of thing?

    Nope, either one will do. You only need both in order to activate the "galaxy projector" at the heart of the base. Not so tedious if you don't bother with the anti-corrosive racks. P.S. you might enjoy reading about a little adventure I had with this a while back. I didn't have Palin's racks and it also contains a little tip about propping the base door open by leaving your UA just outside.

    By the way, regarding video recording - does anyone know how to get AMD ReLive to recognise Elite as a game for recording? I've given up with OBS for the moment, as I've had trouble getting a smooth recording and also had poor audio. ReLive works fine without any fiddling about and seems better than the older Raptr software, but as it doesn't recognise ED as a game running I had to "record desktop" to make it record - so it's recording any alt-tabbing that I do, rather than just the game window. I'll do some Googling to look for a solution, just wondering if there are any other AMD users who know how to fix this.

    I missed this thread until a day or two ago. As there's no deadline, I'll almost certainly have a go at this in between BRC races. I'll be in my Asp-X The Nomad, so I'm likely to have about 40t of rares teas and beermats on board in a Neutron-hopping configuration.

    I count in 3 out of 8 of those CG figures, but will never appear in the steam figures that Eymerich quoted, as I bought direct from FD and never bothered with a steam key. I'm probably playing 3-4 days per week on average, on PC. On the other hand, I'm also 2 of DB's sales since I bought a second PC account, but I rarely use the alt account (it stays in the bubble if I go out exploring), so that account is possibly dead to FD for future revenue.

    Oh I agree about the integral headphones, I think they're absolutey brilliant and I'm a big fan of over ear headphones anyway so there's no question of replacing them one way or the other. The real question is do I want to replace the entire headset (which basically works fine apart from the broken headphone arm) at Oculus's expense (and quite rightly so, the product broke in under a year) but with a certain amount of hassle on my own part (and a small but geuine risk that the new headset will have some new fault such as a dodgy OLED), or keep my old (but faithful) headset, swallow the cost and buy myself a replacement set of over-ear headphones? Having written that I'm tending towards the latter. I'll wait and see what Oculus say first tho.
