I actually played the game back when it released and it was always my favorite space game (those big battles!), then played it again maybe ten years later with FSO I think it was called.
Recently got it for free on GOG and picked up a Thrustmaster Hotas X since I didn't have to pay for the game.
My first question was what buttons I need to map (I think I have 10) - by default it maps 8 of them, so it looks like there are two extra.
I mapped those to "Match Speed" and "Attack my Target"
Are the default mappings the way to go?
Second question was I was watching a video to remember how to play:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCfYLGBkzZI&t=1941s
I noticed a couple things:
First, the video has icons on his radar rather than blips. I searched the mods listed on Knossos and didn't see any HUD mods.
Is this an option/mod?
Second, they kept calling for other ships to attack his target, but I never saw the Comms menu come up. Is there some way to do this with one button?
When I hit "Attack my Target" it brings up a list for me to pick Wings/All Fighters, etc. So I'm wondering if there is a quick way to just tell everybody (and does that even make sense?)
Thanks for any help!
