Is Freespace suppose to look this good? =P (Image Heavy)
I had a ppro. It crapped out on me after a couple of years, necessitating a replacement. The hat switch was the first to go; this seems to be the most fragile joystick component. How you've managed to keep a joystick operational for 7 years is beyond my understanding.

BTW, this fellow is an IT professional so I'll sound out his coding abilities and see if he's interested in pitching in...


the thing done with the Hecate was just a nice retexture job done by "yours truly" and with the new SCP features such as glow mapping and my ati 7500 64 meg card, i pushed the new effects to a new level. i know others have done much more and better looking effects w/ their respective GF-FX/4 128 cards, but for now this gives everyone a general idea on what can be done.

I don't know why my PPro has survived.  It suffered terrible abuse when I bought Descent 2...

Actually, it did fail at one point.  The sensor in the base of the stick has three wires going to it, and one had broken off.  So I broke out the soldering iron and resoldered the wire.  Good as new.
Never had trouble with the hatswitch.  It gets a lot of use too, in Descent.

Regardless, they're still great screenies, and I'd like to put them into the featured pic circulation. Email em to me? :) [email protected]
