    Here is my old HOTAS-X binds, it will give you an idea or might help if you are stuck: https://www.mcdee.net/elite/binds/gjnpkt N.B. It is from before holo-me or the new camera suite but it's a start.

    I think you have to manually edit the binds file so that the modified action you want lists both buttons. I don't use a modifier other than the yaw-to-roll which is a specific command in the controls set-up - I do remember setting up the press-in button on the throttle mini-joystick as a modifier once but I can't find where I did that now (I think it was when I was trying out a ConraM5 stick). It was a case of manually editing the binds file though. Sorry I can't be more help on this - if I remember it I'll get back to you.

    First of all - you need to calm down. There are plenty of people willing to help you out but you have to slow down and take things one at a time. 1. Whether you play in solo or open (or a private group) - it is always the same place, ship and situation that you were in when you last exited the game. There are no saves on your machine your commander save / state is held "in the cloud" - the server. 2. If you get really messed up, just start again by selecting options on the first menu screen and at the bottom of the menu that comes up you will see "clear save" - just follow the prompts. 3. Your control assignments (bindings) and your graphics and audio options are not cleared by a "clear save" so don't worry about losing them. 4. Some buttons (assignments) are "toggles" press once for an action and press again to reverse that action - things like hardpoints, landing gear, lights and so on.

    From the Americans point of view. What does, Make America great again, actually mean?

    Go to '0' throttle as soon as I know that I am inside the slot. That way the D.C. takes over and put me on the pad. If you '0' throttle too early, the D.C. can reverse you back out the slot again.

    Two years later I am an accomplished smuggler with over 300million in assets to my name. I only get to play about once a week, but really enjoy every moment. The last two Sidewinders I lost one that first day, were due to deploying weapons, inside the station.

    I made Elite in the 84 game on the Sinclair Spectrum. 25 years later it still took me 7 Sidewnders to get out of the station.

    Me too slow again: Trades description act says 'unlimited' should mean just that; but the advanced scanned IS limited to the system you are in and nothing more.

    Which type of discovery scanner do you have fitted? If it is the basic one, then the other targets are out of range.

    I guess this is the heart of the question. What is it that defines: Making America Great Again? I would say that this statement means different things to different people, across the country.

    The issue has always been the same across the political spectrum, throughout history. The focus is always on the personalities and not the policies.

    Good lord now its "Git Gud" on the surface? ;) ....... also remember where the "Dangerous" in the title comes from it is not a description of the game but a rating in the Pilot's Federation.

    I always reduce throttle to zero during the countdown - always make sure it is at zero when the jump animation starts then you will not start moving forward on arrival.

    MalcYorks replied to a thread CQC dead? in Dangerous Discussion
    It is not only dead but they no longer sell it as a stand-alone game (Arena). It is time they admitted it is a turkey and removed the nonsense about it in our UI.

    MalcYorks replied to a thread EDDiscovery in Elite Exploration
    On the anti-virus "thing" - as long as you just disable your "on access" scan or the whole AV prog just while you install the application, turn it back on after installing. However, as I said, I have never had to disable the AV for EDD - in fact I don't normally disable it for installations, only problem ones. As for using a different location for EDD, that is one aspect of the portable version. I wonder if any of the EDD team can confirm it's actual stand-alone status, i.e. can it just reside on a flash drive for example or does it still install EDD to the computer and just hold the database(s) in a separate location. P.S. Don't work too hard. ;)

    1. You had not landed so you were still flying and the rules for AI spawning are normal I suppose but see my comment at the bottom. 2. The AI asks for cargo - therfore you must have had some cargo - if you didn't then bug report it. 3. Your link to the other vids in the other thread give an error. I have never had a pirate turn up as I was landing - they frequently turn up on launching - had you tpuched down then lifted off again?

    Thanks a lot for that, very helpful. I just wish I had unlimited rolls! Can anyone give me help on where to find engineering items? I know that's pretty general, and I guess I could use one of the databases available, but how do you find specific things in the game? Even metals/minerals, do you just hope some port has them? Or just hope that mining at asteroid or rock on a planet will have something? I've landed on a planet, cruised around in the SRV, but couldn't even collect anything - tried hitting rocks with the SRV weapon but nothing happened. Any help here? (obviously I'm a noob - but making progress and having fun)

    NPCs can have engineered modules, including weapons. Below Master have none, increasing probability until Deadly and Elite will always have engineer mods.
