Hi guys, I am only just about to buy ED tomorrow. 24th sept.
So I am a total noob. I have been following this game and watching vids ect for quite a long time now, since before alpha. But now finally taking the plunge as I have a new GPU arriving soon. (gtx 560 at present, but r9 280 on the way)
I choose PVE because at 58 yrs of age and reactions slowing down I would get my ass kicked in PVP, and I am an X-series game player of many years so enjoy more the trading and building up my account much more. (and the new x-rebirth sucks a bit).
I am teamspeak capable, and hope to talk to you all soon, but I just will be doing some solo play first to get on the ladder and be at least a bit capable of knowing what I am doing before I join the online game.
Hope to see you all in game soon though.

Welcome aboard Commander. :)

You don't have to team speak to be part of this excellent group.

I recommend you jump straight in to the Mobius private group for playing. It's the same as solo, plus us friendly commanders. :)

I will be mapping my joystick to start with and reading a guide though.

I wish I had done that when I started. For some reason I thought it was going to be a similar set of controls to FE2 so I jumped right in.

Took me an hour or so of bouncing off the docking port cage at Chango dock before I worked it out :P

Ouch! :) I prefer to go offline to tweak my setup. And amongst the asteroids, no one can hear you scream. :D

Hi Commanders.

I followed this thread from the Elite Dangerous forums. I've learned not to place a colon between those two words. Anyway, I've been with the Mobius group for about three weeks as I wasn't really into the pvp style game play/ attitude. Each to their own and all that. I'm up for combat as and when, but not against player Commanders. That's where, if I have got this right, (?) the Mobius Group comes into play.

I originally played Elite on the (Dad's) BBC in 1984 with a Voltmace Delta 14 Joystick (I couldn't programme the buttons for Elite as there was no memory left(cassette version))

I also remember trying to make a copy (own use, tape wearing out) using the old:

*OPT1,2
*LOAD "ELITE"

...thing but failing (does anyone remember that on the beeb?

Then got my own Commodore 64 when I left school and got a job

Many punk bands and hangovers later I used my Digital Audio Workstation PC to browse the web for a remake of Elite and stumbled upon Oolite which I loved and congratulations to whoever of you on this forum were involved in the making/mods etc. On the Oolite forums I learned of the up and coming Elite Dangerous.

So, here I am.
