Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
It's just because we're saying it in a Terran language. I'm sure the Vasudan translate it by GVTA rather than GTVA in their own language.

I thought that this was the correct explanation.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
 :wtf:

I figured it was a proper or formal name. You don't just arbitrarily flip them around usually.. Does Spain call it the American-Spanish War? Or the French flip the Franco-American Alliance?

Actually, I'm pretty sure that the Vietnamese called it the American War for one. . . so yes.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
I can see how wars would be switched.. bad example. But treaties and alliances? I'm skeptical of that. But this is a really retarded point to argue... so meh.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Does FS Port require a joystick? When I launch it keeps telling me the ini file references a joystick and Knossos can't find it.

 
Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
No you should be able to play it with mouse/keyboard.

The idea of playing a space sim with a mouse is even more alien and inscrutable than the Shivans themselves. :nervous: :nervous: :wtf:

I think there're quite a few people using the mouse; though I'm not one of them.

There have been some joystick coding problems in the past year or two, but these have been part of Freespace Open and are not related to FSPort.  Try restarting Knossos, selecting the most recent build, and re-doing your joystick settings.
