Elite Dangerous » Elite killed my 670 GTX

Probably the first thing you thought when reading the blog title was - is this some spam random post? I wish it was the case.. but my Nvidia 670 GTX has now gone on its last journey after just 2 and half years;

I havnt been playing Elite for a few days as ive been working on the site, or playing on the PS3. I just recently wrote some code to save the best deals back into the database. So, today I thought ill check a run that the site worked out between Deneb Algedi to V374 Pegasi - it looked promising. So I launched the game, got into the game and set my location to V374 Pegasi. Next I asked for permission to launch, went to pull-up, then a big blue-screen of death. I knew it wasnt a good but I ... Read more

Elite Dangerous » Cmd Roguey, Chapter 4

Boy... its been a long time since my last blog on Elite - almost 4 months! Since then a lot has changed for me - ive switch from an Asp (which was a great ship), to an Anaconda, got 100 million in the bank and have explored the universe a little.

A little after my last post I found mention of a luxury run called - Tenche. On face-value it didn't look like it would offer much, but after trying a test run with my Asp seem to be a fast way to make money. The run invoiced picking up performance-enhancers (from the nearby station), then selling them at a nearby point. Whilst the profit wasn't ground breaking, it meant you could sell them very quickly. So it was time to sell the Asp, for a Type 7. I knew this run would be removed by ... Read more

Elite Dangerous » A new beginning..

Reasons to delete your commander and start fresh over..

First try
The first start of E:D made me think I bought the wrong game!
There were too many commands for Elite:Dangerous.
So I tried this and that, got confused with the keyboard and finally connected an old TM Hotas-X.
Tried the training mission and were unhappy with the game.
Controls were so confusing!
Spend more hours to find other peoples joystick configuration.
Tested them and well played finally E:D.
Got again unhappy with multi-used buttons and bought a TM Hotas Warthog.

Got even MORE unhappy with those beatiful hardware because of configuration and strange device problems.
TLTR..
Finally I was happy with the configuration and played some ... Read more

Elite Dangerous » I have never written a blog before..

Normally I do not like the idea of posting my personal view in the public.
But elite:dangerous is eating my spare time like no other game before.
Therefore I will give it a try for this..

So what am I expected to do with a blog?

Maybe I should "talk" about my first contact with ELITE in the last CENTURY ^^
Games for home-computers were sold on tapes. Yuck!
The game box contempts:
-a PRINTED manual
-a pretty A3 sized poster with the ship types(filled, not wireframed Smile )
-the tape itself
and a strange plastic lense.

Because of the possibility to copy tapes easily from one to the other :p they decided to sell the tape with a special "lense" which you had to put on your TV-screen.
There was a ... Read more

Elite Dangerous » Cmd Roguey, Chapter 3

In my last blog I had switched back to an Asp, making me feel some-what safer. However things have changed - the universe is more hostile than ever.

It seems more human players have taken up the role of pirating - stealing and killing from other players, especially on main trade routes / rares (Lave / Altair areas). Myself, I have lost over 350k in hull damage to them and only narrowing escaping a couple of times. Elite & Dangerous is quickly turning into a PvP game which is not what I wanted. I guess I could head off the beaten track, or play solo but that defeats the point of online play, eh?

Many months ago, the online mode sounded great - being able to meet other players and maybe party with them ... Read more
