...And that's all this rebel fighter pilot has to say to anyone who wants to sell him anything on his relax time. The banners are bad enough!

Speaking of fighter piloting, this unit just got X-wing a couple of days ago. I passed the first A-wing scenario in Historical Combat (barely. That frigate was on me so bad I had to divert all my power to the engines to get away...), but I think I'm going to need a better joystick before I tackle anything harder. I got the Thrustmaser (quit laughing! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/biggrin.gif) Platinum; I've tried recalibrating it every way I can think of, but it still jerks me all over the place. If anyone has a clue why this is happening to me, let me know! (And yes, I do have only one game port, so that can't be it...)

It would probibly stop jerking around if you quit moving the stick.

Keep all talk of joystick-jerking to yourself!!! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/biggrin.gif

I found the solution: choose a better joystick. When I went to buy one, I originally picked an Interplay Magnum 6, but some bright young dweezle behind the counter talked me into getting the Thrustmaster Platinum instead. I went back and informed him that I wanted the other joystick in exchange and no arguments. Now I'm flying just fine, and learning how to work my new A-wing...I can see why Conor says X-wing is a flight sim while Rogue Squadron is an arcade game! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif

Not to worry. I still like my old Nintendo copy of Rogue Squadron...!

I love X-Wing, but it's hard... I don't think I'll ever finish it...
My favourite is the Pilot Proving Ground! I wish they had one o' those in Rogue Squardon.

I didn't really get the point to the Pilot Proving Ground. I like having things I can shoot at.

I see what you mean about the game's being hard! I've been putting at least an hour of practice in each day for two weeks now, and I'm still not confident enough to start a tour. Plenty of fun to be had in Historical Combat, though... http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif
