ok i tried to play just now for the first time and got an error.

Assertion failed!

Program: C:\Oolite\oolite.app\oolite.exe

File: src/SDL/MyOpenGLView.m

Line: 220

Expression: surface != NULL

For information on how you program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts

(Press Retry to debug the application - JIT must be enabled)

i hit retry and a window popped up: oolite.exe has stopped working blah blah blah.

no idea what any of that means or what to do. πŸ™

Okay, a few questions, then I'll link it to the Oolite forum... I'm only a dumb pilot, not a coder or dev:

Which version of Oolite? 1.76?

Which OS? (I presume Windows of some flavour).

Which GPU?

Done! You'll have to seek the stuff mentioned over at the Oolite forum, but the -nosplash option is the first thing to try.

Edit to add: this last post seems a more likely solution. Trunk nightlies can be found from here.

The nightlies are easy to install, but your AV may not like them at first. I have to coerce my Nortons to run them, but they are quite safe.

One question: which fix worked, the -nosplash, or the trunk nightly?

Hey Doc? There is an Elite Plus manual (plus other goodies πŸ˜‰ ) in the download section if thats any help to you? I think most of the controls are the same, but perhaps Cody could confirm πŸ˜•

Anyways here is a link http://spacesimcentral.com/downloads/ft ... ite_Clones

The Oolite reference sheet pdf, plus stuff on the Oolite wiki (see Mr Gimlet) should be enough.

Get out there and trade/fight, man! You'll learn fast... or die in the process!

For the best looking ships, stations etc, get Griff's Shipset OXP... it's the real deal!

My own Cobra III Rolling Thunder with my own custom decals - man, what a ship!

Also, get the Background Set... great docked screens and ambient sounds/effects!

Re controls: this page is useful, and at the bottom there are a couple of Classic Elite Keyboard layout downloads.

Of course, you can easily re-jig most of the keys yourself anyway... I've customised mine a little.

The Oolite Naval Attaché is quite comfortable, thank you kindly.

I'm an expert player of the game, but not nearly so expert at the mechanics of the game.

It's from the back cover of a Grateful Dead album, namely Shakedown Street, and I call him Mister Shaky! The album ain't their best, by any means - in fact, some of it is poor but the artwork is great, as is usual with them.

i'm glad you like that. now you know i'm not some coked out pc gamer πŸ˜† if you have time...i highly recommend watching the show, Metalocalypse. it is brilliant. all the voices and music is done by a guy named Brendon Small. he's very talented. he also created a cartoon called Home Movies which is good also.

Sorry I wasn't here to help you out but Cody did an excellent job. So how's rings on the playing side in Oolite so far?
