    Here is a quick video which gives a good example of front "projection" (excuse my term) ... stick on headphones, just stereo, no processing and see what I mean - use the highest quality setting on the youtube interface for best result I suppose. The levels are not great but for example the golf balls bouncing in front of you are really precise... There are loads of binaural demos on youtube. What do you think?

    Recently I have been sucked into playing E D really late at night and since I live in an apartment I then switch from my normal 7.1 surround system to my headset so as not to trouble neighbours. My headset is the Hyperx CloudII and I really like it for it's comfort and reasonable fidelity (the mic is good too it has been reported to me) but I am really bugged about having no sound-stage in front of me. I can use the DTS-X in the game or the virtual 7.1 with the headset's dongle but although there is good "presence" around, behind and even above and below, there is just nowt projected in front. Yes I know it is only two drivers and it is DSP that is giving anything other than stereo presence. Is there any way to simulate the "binaural recordings" that I have heard in the past? I don't know how any recording could be manipulated to produce the frontal sound-stage that a binaural recording produces. How do those of you that use VR cope with this, since I assume that you always listen via a...

    John it's always sad to see someone leave a community but, honestly, if you are unhappy with the game you should move on to something new that may spur your interests. Some good tips here though, i.e. groups, if you choose to stay awhile. Cheers ... Chief

    I am fairly new here too but I have to agree with Stealthie in that having "THE" computer play the game for you is not the purpose of the game. IF you had it what happens if an event occurs and the computer can not handle it and your off in the kitchen getting a snack? You come back to a screen telling you are back at your last dock minus everything you just had. No, I entertained the same thoughts as you at first but a lot of work and trade trips and the community here persuaded me I was mistaken. Though I am standing up for better scanners and probes. Chief

    For the record, I'm a PC person that always wanted to own an Xbox but don't .... WOW! Do you think you might be a "little" angry? Pardon my sarcasm, but there is animosity between the PC folks and Xbox folks? Number one, from what I read you folk did rather well in spite of the confusion. As for any eleged rift raft, which I suspect that crosses the line both ways (just a guess). There is a lot of heart burn tablets being used today over something from my perspective went off fairly well in spite of quite a bit of late attempts to organize things. But hey, perhaps I should leave before I am run off (yea more sarcasm .... don't you just love it?).

    As one not too far out of Newbie-ism I want to thank all you Ladies (if there are any) and gentlemen (no fighting words intended) for ALL the helpful tips you have given. I plan to put this thread, along with the other helpful threads, on my list to pass on to any NEW commanders I come in contact with. My only tip, is IF your having trouble manually landing, Make sure the little red ball is nested in the blue basket and go slow. Cheers ... Chief

    They must have got rid of it - my bookmark for the system is still there but nothing on the planet. Last time I went there the settlement was actually on the map, the last update must have wiped it.

    First, per Bonds comment perhaps OP should change his title to in game. But, in game, I guess so far is run out of gas or linger near the wrong sun's gravitational pull. Lucky for the gas one my mentor took time to come save me. And the other I some how managed to boost away with sparks and smoke every where. Chif

    So what your perposing is basically a ship yard refit? That would of course require a ship yard. Do we have any in game? Or will they have to be created? I like the idea within limits of course. I mean these ships are not the Tartus and thus you can only refit what will fit. Chief

    Not a big fan of bringing politics or religion (both which I am strong in) into games or gaming forums. With that said, doing something over and over and over ... till you get the results you (or some) want is not my idea of fairness. Sometimes you have to take things as they fall (good or Bad) like real life and move on to hopefully better things or times. Chief

    Then if the community truely wants events like this (group participation) then it is up to them to counter any negatives. Which is why they have solo & group play isn't it? From what I have read these events do not happen often. I guess because it's an organizational night mare at its best. But I think (also from what I have read) that many know now that there needs to be a lot more preorgization of things. But even so I have to wonder about the number of participants verses the game and/or internet limitations.

    I have asked this else where it what is the official network cap for multiplay? If there is one then perhaps more fore thought might be given to prior sign ups and a limitation. You see the problem is not so much 700 pilots being online at once (which is a LOT to me) but having 700 pilots in close proximity to each other at one time. Sort of like the LA freeway at quoting time. Each connection is different depending on the traffic and how it all comes together. Does it sound like I know what I am talking about? Well, maybe ... maybe not.

    Well, I am pretty new here (then why am I opening my mouth, right) but what I see is that a player event did not come off as well as hoped for and that it is over shadowed by the many failings of E D itself (as evident by the continuous negative comments (followed by comments from the defenders). Is this about Right? Question .... what, if any is the multiplayer cap? In other words what is the official limit for live folks online? In most flight sims it's approx 75 to 100 before you have real problems. Also I would mention that organizing a large herd of cats (humans) on short notice (relatively) is no easy task even for the best (which I am not). So from what I saw in Discord and a couple of live feeds last night, it wasn't too bad but with lots of room for improvements. As for, I suspect, a couple of volunteer DEVS being allowed support this venture, well it says a lot for trying to support the community ventures for E D. So I think some slack is due here with possible thanks. As for E D not...
