Kyaa! Hello! And a question for the old oldies
 
Hello! I can't believe how many names I still recognise here! =D

Well, I didn't know where else to turn, and so in my hour of need I thought of this place. :) Good times, good times.

To business! Here is my dilemma:
So I just recieved in the mail a copy of my favourite old game, Star Wars: X-Wing (original 1993!) :)
However, it didn't come with any booklet or instruction manual, and I can't for my life remember some of the more important controls. U_U
Example: Which button will divert power from shields/engines/laser cannons?
How do I recharge lasers?
And most important, how do I configure my controls?? >_< Like, I want to set throttle up and down to be usable on my joystick...

Woo! Thank you for any help in advance... ._.

Anyways, yay, it's fun to see this place again! ^_^ If anyone wants to know what I've been up to, I got married <3 went to Japan for a year, now we live *way* up north where it's light like 20 hours of the day (hurrah!), and we're currently trying to get back to Japan, or somewhere else. ^_^

Thank you all so much if you can help me with me with my plight! ^___^

I'm basing this off of TIE Fighter controls, since I haven't played X-wing in FOREEEEVER. I think the apostrophe and semicolon keys divert laser power to shields and vice versa. I vaguely recall the F9 key handling laser power allotment and F8 being shields. And as for that joystick thing, you'll need to set that in the options menu; it should be ESC or at the very least before you load up the game.

AND OMG LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU <3 <3 <3

Dark Sad Shadow 05-02-2007 01:16 AM

OMG !!! LU!!! WELCOME HOME HONEY!!!
f9 key recharge lasers
f10 recharge shields

:D

Lujayne 05-02-2007 01:48 AM

Hello, and thank you! :D Most of that info was correct. ^_^
The only thing I still need, is how to configure my joystic buttons to be what I want them to be... =(
The only Options menu that I can find looks like this:

and nowhere in there is an option to mess with your controls. =(
What do you mean config my joystick before I start up the game?? O_O

Oh, DSS, you posted as I was replying, too~! =D
How's it goin'?? ^_^
Um, que onda!? is that a phrase? =D

SuicidalXWing 05-02-2007 07:12 AM

Dark Sad Shadow 05-03-2007 08:20 PM

Kuuki 05-03-2007 10:31 PM

Cmdr. Cracken 05-03-2007 10:41 PM

Guess my japanese is rusty.

Rogue15 05-04-2007 09:29 AM

navy boy is right!

SuicidalXWing 05-04-2007 10:29 AM

wow, there's a first time for everything indeed.

Kuuki 05-04-2007 10:54 AM

yeah, when are YOU going to be right for a change, huh weekend warrior? :p

SuicidalXWing 05-04-2007 04:09 PM

When navy guys stop spooning each other.

Cmdr. Cracken 05-04-2007 05:16 PM

Play nice. They don't spoon each other.

Then again, I'm not, nor ever will I be, associated with the Navy unless they make me like.... Grand Admiral of the U.S Atlantic and Pacific Fleets.

Kuuki 05-04-2007 06:21 PM

why go for broke kyle! Be the Chief of Navy Operations

SuicidalXWing 05-04-2007 10:26 PM

yeah, its too rough to be spooning

Lujayne 05-05-2007 03:20 PM

Hehe... Spoon. ^__^

Lujayne 05-05-2007 03:23 PM

And hey, why doesn't anyone know how I can configure my buttons in XWing? http://ic3.deviantart.com/fs15/f/200...ittleDende.gif

edlib 05-05-2007 03:31 PM

Apparently not the people to be asking.

dunno, maybe cause we haven't played it since before the majority of the members of lucasforums were born?

Ray Jones 05-09-2007 08:43 AM

Because they want you to stay, sweetee.

SuicidalXWing 05-09-2007 04:52 PM

Dug out my X Wing CD and case, turns out all the info is on the reference card. I have a tub full of hundreds upon thousands of manuals. So it might be a little more time.

Rogue 9 05-11-2007 05:03 AM

they come with manuals?! all these years of pushing buttons one by one to see what happens wasted...in other news my main user has been broken by bored site admins who created a retired staff group with no posting rights.

Rogue9 05-11-2007 10:18 AM

Aha now its fixed. :-) Hi Lujayne!

Lynk Former 05-11-2007 10:26 AM

Oh wow, R9... it's funny how everyone has just been lurking around this place all this time and they suddenly like to pop in and say hi every now and then XD

Ikhnaton 05-12-2007 02:04 AM

you should have posted this in the XWA forum where it belongs :P


i don't understand it. I'm married, yet I manage to check this place out at least once a day or so, why can't you, miss guildenstern??

Cmdr. Cracken 05-16-2007 11:52 AM

I doubt she would have gotten an answer there either Ike.......
