Thanks to all for the advice on the Kessel issue. Now what I need to know is "can you change the view e.g. cockpit/close outside/distant outside"? My copy of RS is second-hand and didn't come with the normal instruction book. Any hints/tips/advice greatly appreciated.

If this is the n64 version, try using the control pad, or just go to options and controls to ifnd out and change your configuration.

Well rookie (*Reaches for R.S. Instrustion Booklet, then realizes the span of time since he has kept track of it has reached a very large number indeed*) Couldnt tell ya....... Just go in to configure your keyboard. Thatl tell ya what it is. But between you 'n me in arcade style games like R.S. youre better off to keep your view outside the cockpit. The cockpit view is more usefull in games like X-Wing Alliance where you have a targeting computer and a crosshair.

If you've got the 64 version then click the "L" button to cycle through the views.

A word on outside view vs. cockpit view.

Cockpit view, with the cockpit 'turned off' so you have the HUD display. Then there is nothing but crosshairs and bad guys to deal with. Plus, it's more like I'm flying a real starfighter instead of a model airplane. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/biggrin.gif

Although the Y-wing's bombs are more useful in outside view...

Many thanks for the tips, guys! I have just tried RS again in without the usual view and what a difference it makes. Flying with only the cross-hairs is sooooo much better!

I hate to say it, but I'm not using the N64 but a PC version so thanks go to Imladil and R.A.V.E.N for their advice. No hard feelings?

Yes...but you're flying your starfighter with a silly little game paddle instead of a true and proper joystick. For shame! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif

Yes, that is a set back, but you get over it for sheer love of the game. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif

Oh, I've flown Nintendo, and there's no joy in that stick. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif You have so much more control with a larger joystick...and let's face it, it's easier to pretend you're in a real starfighter when you have something more realistic to fly with.

Shootist hasn't said a peep through this whole joystick debate. The strain must be unbearable... http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/biggrin.gif

I agree with you about the n64's joystick so lets start a petition and force n64 to make a joystick for the n64!!!

Actually I think they have a joy stick, or is that Playstation? I'm not sure.

It's playstation n64 only has the controller and that really stinks. They should make a joystick i asked them if they had plans of making one and they said no. I haven't been playing Rogue Squadron for a while, I've started playing Jedi Knight which is pretty fun. I got all these star wars games:

Rogue Squadron 64
Racer 64
Shadows of the Empire 64 (that game is awesome)
TIE Fighter
X-Wing
X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter Flight School
Rebellion
Rebel Assault 1
Jedi Knight
Mysteries of the Sith
Super Empire Strikes Back

That's alot of star wars games plus my dad has Force Commander and that game rules.

I got the Saitek Cyborg 2000 joystick for my computer and i wish it was compatible with the n64.

The funnest game for computer i think is Jedi Knight 'cause i can get levels for it and i found out how to get the high-resolution graphics in even though i got a 486 with 16 megs of ram and no 3d accellerator!!! To do this:

do the full install
go into settings
put it to 640 X whatever you want
Then go into the game and minimize the screen as far as possible.

And the graphics and game run smoothly-even with sound and music. Very hard to play at first but then it seems like playing a gameboy 'cause your eyes adjust to the small screen.

Imladil, they do have a full size joystick for the n64. The have more than one type of controller you know.

There is no joystick for the N64.

The Master
06-23-2000, 03:09 PM
Yes there is and there are other types of controls like the diving wheel- has alot of buttons http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif. But there is a Joystick- with a lot of buttons.

Chillin
06-23-2000, 03:52 PM
The Master is right, they also have pedals, like in a car, for the driving games. They also have different types of controllers they come in many different shapes ya know. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif
