Re: There goes the throttle (X55)

Check your forward and reverse thruster settings/bindings............ They were all in order. I tried rebinding the reverse thruster to other buttons and switches as well, in case some of the buttons were dead despite working in the configuration software but it had no effect. Maybe something got t...

Re: There goes the throttle (X55)

Well if you lived in Dorset I'd have a crack at it..... :D Mere 2000 km away. I'll be there tomorrow :mrgreen: But yeah, looks like my flying is done for the time being after all. Fired up ED but the throttle lever doesn't respond at all. The ship just starts going backwards at full-esque throttle....

Re: There goes the throttle (X55)

Interesting. Now that the throttle is back together I opened the configuration program to double check if the other buttons still work. Turned out the pinky switch works both ways but the rotaries on the throttle stick are dead. I wonder how that's possible. Maybe the wires carry more stuff than jus...

Re: There goes the throttle (X55)

I think I'll first ask around if someone has a soldering iron and dem skillz to do things with it. I don't know anything about soldering/fixing electronics/the likes so I'm a bit hesitant doing it myself.

Re: What are you doing (ingame) now?

Currently docked at Obsidian Orbital. Thought I'd explore the thargoid sites and what not. Traded the Vulture for a Diamondback Explorer since my AspX is in Colonia, kitted it for exploring and now I'm here. Tried doing the Palin mission I got from OO to bring in some thargoid resin. Spent hours fir...

Re: There goes the throttle (X55)

I've had the X-55 from its launch and the wiring work was pretty shoddy to say the least... Mine actually lasted over 2.5 years, so kudos for that I guess, lol. After I bought it I read about those wiring issues and was kinda worried how long it would last. Cant really cock up any worse than the fa...

There goes the throttle (X55)

Gosh darn it! :( https://i.imgur.com/QgKywIa.jpg Began having the issue where one of the buttons stopped working when the lever was at full throttle and then came back to life when I eased off a little bit. Suspected the wiring, them being the known issue. So I opened it up to see what's going on s...

Re: What are you doing (ingame) now?

Got bored being in Colonia and sewasidewindered myself back to the Bubble.

Bought a Vulture just for the hell of it (and because I've never had one) and now I've no idea what to do.

Re: How do you get back to your ship? (stupidity warning)

Since you are playing on PC, one thing you can try is to load the standard "Elite Dangerous 64" client, i.e. the non-Horizons version. When loading, you will get a message that your save point is on a planet but your computer cannot render terrain with the two options "abort load&quo...

Re: How do you get back to your ship? (stupidity warning)

Yeah, I drove under the pad but the little 'board ship' indicator didn't light up or anything. I tried backing in, different spots etc. Nothing. So I went for the recall option, eventhough it seemed a bit odd. Then my ship appeared, flying in outside the radar and just landed ... somewhere away from...
