    No, simply indicative of the facts of the situation. You knowing chose to cheat, then cry about no one being perfect as an excuse, so the lack of perfect permits cheating. Perfection is not needed to make basic moral choices such as "do I cheat or not?" Do you really think one needs to be perfect to make the right choice when presented with "Cheat or Not cheat" But I am sure you will try to justifiy you choice as not yours or not a choice, after all why should you be held accountable for your actions, you have no control when there are negative consequences.

    Learn the fight mechanics by purchasing a small ship a low pitch rate like a Viper 3 or Viper 4. It's great training for the fight mechanics of high end ships like the Fer De Lance, Python, or even the Federal Corvette. And it's a much cheaper way to learn!

    You are forgiven, ;) I don't allow automatic updates of the graphics driver, I like to stick with a "strong and stable" version for quite a long time. So as MickyG says it might be your driver updating automatically. good luck

    The issue is that the monarch cannot be prosecuted by or in the courts since those sit in their name. The only redress against the monarch is via parliament - e.g. chopping off old Charlie's head. The police can't ask the CROWN prosecution service to initiate a prosecution, the clue being in the name. Suing for redress in a civil court is similarly barred since all courts in the UK act in the monarch's name. The Magna Carta is a chimera really, so many versions, revocations, repeals, reissues all in the struggle between the Aristos and the Crown and it only applies to England (and the Welsh Principality I suppose). Nowadays it basically doesn't exist in law any more, only a few parts still have status - here is a quote from Wikipedia: I. FIRST, We have granted to God, and by this our present Charter have confirmed, for Us and our Heirs for ever, that the Church of England shall be free, and shall have all her whole Rights and Liberties inviolable. We have granted also, and given to all the...

    I care because I invested a lot of time training in the operation to keep her safe. Not because I cared if she lived or died, but it was something fun to do ;). And tbh the conclusion seemed totally fishy at the time, and felt to me like Drew had betrayed the hard work of the community, either thru his astonishingly poor piloting or thru intentionally throwing the fight. However, Mr Potter's "confession" makes me think it's actually possible that Drew's is really that bad at Elite. Which is slightly better imo, and I would like to think the best of Drew for some reason. Even though he did kinda try to pin her death on the community.

    Ziljan replied to a thread Salome Reborn! in Dangerous Discussion
    At the time it happened, that's exactly what it looked like. And I gave Drew a hard time for not making it look more convincing, and further more for saying the (grieving) community decided her fate, just to punch us in balls when we were down. However since you're confirming my suspicions, now I'm doubting it from both ends. Lol. Way to mess with my head Harry. Going to have to start charging you rent. :P

    Mr Lizard refers to a known "glitch" that causes rare goods to not be sold at a profit if you are running a third-party tool like EDMC. Turn off EDMC (or similar) and reload E D and the correct profits will be available.

    Like you, I wouldn't have used the cheat for multiplayer advantage, but I am often interested in tinkering with and exploring game systems and technology out of curiosity, so there-but-for-the-grace-of-god-go-I! We know a punitive action was necessary for the bigger picture, but I also totally understand your frustration, for whatever that's worth. :(

    Well I for one see it every time I start. It just goes through the animation very quickly so it isn't actually doing anything I suppose it is just checking.

    A nice honest confession and without grief. Well said, an exploit is an exploit and scatter gun or not. It had to be dealt with, across the board.

    Those are what I use - terrific piece of kit and if you do any flight sim as well they are great for Airbus etc. I use the pinky button as a "press-to-hold" for the "Yaw to Roll" keybind. Thus when I hold in the pinky button, the lateral axis produces yaw instead of roll. I also use the reverse throttle and Flight Assist as press-to-hold. (I also use Cougar MFDs an CH Pro Pedals so the actual binds file might not be of much use without maybe having to edit it.)

    I have a feeling that it's primarily technical reasons - that the database doesn't have the necessary granularity to distinguish which engineered modules had cheated-rolls, merely that cheat rolls were made and what type of upgrade was affected. (Or perhaps the tools/scipts FDev had to create to auto-met-out-justice are simpler/safer if they only key to the upgrade ID, or...) The fact that this results in a bit of punitive action in addition to the corrective action might be a happy coincidence. Removing the cheated modules without applying any additional punitive actions would have given players an incentive to cheat more in the future at next opportunity, because they would learn that the worst-case scenario of getting caught red-handed is ending up just as well-off as if they hadn't cheated at all, ie no consequences
