    Privateer Gemini Gold 1.02

    Yeah I vaguely remember you having to rebuy things. Either way, stuff is getting damaged too easily. Here's a typical situation in the original: Head on with an Orion throwing mass drivers in your face. Your shields go down and you take some major damage to your armor. One lucky hit with your...

    Yeah it's not true to the original. I was pointing that out. I get they come preinstalled. I just don't think it's a good idea. Thanks though.

    need more information. That's plenty enough machine for this game engine. At what point is it CTD during loadup? Anything else you can tell us?

    Privateer Gemini Gold 1.02

    Having a new problem. My mouse goes dead on me! It's only when I've been playing the game. UPDATE The mouse thing is fixed by unplugging my mouse and then waiting 10 seconds and plugging it back in. IDK why it happens though. Seems to be especially when leave the game paused for an extended...

    Thanks AD! I'll find that thread and post my settings there. I've tried a lot though! ;) I had a couple other issues today with GG. First, I got weird autopilot issues after 'escorting' a vessel. After I followed it to its destination, the autopilot would collide me with either the ship, or...

    Darn 3 posts in a row. Forgot to mention I'm having problems with my Saitek joystick and my Logitech. Both are USB. Both are 3 axle w/throttle. I set the settings accordingly. Is this a known issue?

    I agree on the repair prices. Too high in some cases. Also losing an item altogether when it's destroyed is a bad idea. I've gone through 3 afterburners so far. In the original it could get blown up altogether and still get repaired for considerably less than buying it all over again. Maybe it...

    Privateer Gemini Gold 1.02

    Still, I'm confused. When I bought the turret for my Centurion, it stuck it in the back. When I went to mount guns to it and a tractor beam, it said no slots available. I said ok must be a bug not worked out yet. Then I went in space and checked it out. It fired mesons. In order to mount a...

    Just got a CTD when I tried to switch to turret view to cover my butt while waiting to jump. Come to think of it, turret system's kinda screwy, innit?

    Privateer Gemini Gold 1.02

    I like the improvements! I think the nav menu is the biggest eyesore still and needs more attention than just about anything else. Hmm.. I'd like to see the animated landing. Pirates and Retros are just a tad too strong. Kilrathi are too easy. (I'd switch the AI and it'd be balanced about...

    Any News?

    @ Warzog - Regarding trade lanes, as most WC fans would agree, there needs to be something semi-equivilent to autopilot. Since it's a different game engine and that's not really an option, trade lanes take the place of this feature. I'm not really sure why anyone would argue with that. I'm a...

    Any News?

    cool, warzog. I noticed that problem with the bases also. The biggest thing that bugs me though, is the time it takes to travel across a system. It drags the gameplay. Maybe putting in trade lanes to connect the main areas in a system would help. Pirates, Retros, and Kilrathi could still...

    Any News?

    I just learned of this project and I got a beta copy of Privateer: The Reckoning which I've been playing and enjoying. I'm wondering, is there any news? Also Is there a list of where I can buy different ships? I tried peering into the files of the mod but I'd have to look through hundreds of...
