Cannot create a new pilot
What ho, gentlemen.
I am deeply impressed by what you did here and decided to try the game myself.

I have a problem - cannot create a new pilot profile. The game just doesn't respond to pressing "enter".
Tried the "search" button which comes with every forum, but to no avail.

Also, unimportant question: does the game have 3rd person view as I've seen in "Beyond the Red Line" trailer?

 
Re: Cannot create a new pilot
I'm afraid I can't help you with the pilot thing.

I know I once accidentally unlocked a third - person view with random button - mashing, but I quickly exited out of it.

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
It's numpad [.] (you move the camera) or
  • (you move the ship)

Maybe you went over the limit of pilot profiles ?

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
The numpad * key also gives a third-person view, from behind your fighter with a full hud (on SCP builds).

I've never liked to fly that way though.
When the reactor explodes, it's usually a sign that you've taken too much damage.

Yeah it's really disruptive IMO, and hard to aim properly, cause the lead indicator (AFAIK) doesn't compensate properly.

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
All the cinematic commands (third person, view from another ship, etc) are "/", "*", ".", "Enter" on the numpad. Enter is for when you click "." and can move the view with the joystick, it locks the view and the stick moves the ship.

Does anyone know the answer to the real question though?

More than enough.

Running FS for the first time. I've tried "Beyond the red line" demo: there is an existing profile which I can choose but FS has none and doesn't react to blasted enter (both of them). So I can't get past the first menu.

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
Your Enter is broken?

Weird ****. I guess some computer specs couldn't hurt, hmm.

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
There have been a rash of unaccepted control input problems lately.

What build are you running?

Tried "Reccomended 3.6.10 builds: 1" (#2 doesn't work) with launcher 5.5d and the one from here.
No changes.

Oh.
Asus P5LD2Deluxe(integrated Realtek ALC882/D/M sound), Pentium 4 640, 3200 MHz, 2048Mb (DDR2-667 SDRAM)
WinXP SP2 (32 bit), GF8800GTS, NVidia FW169.21.
What else?

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
Upgrade the drivers. People have had graphics corruption with the 16x.xx series of nVidia drivers. (while not relevant to this problem, it could help you down the road)

And try selecting "No MOD" in the MOD tab of the launcher.

Re: Cannot create a new pilot
Did both. Nothing.
Can anyone make a new profile and upload files?
