Reminder for when 2.2 drops tomorrow

Postby Loriath » Mon Oct 24, 2016 10:42 am

With 2.2 landing Tuesday, just thought i would toss up this little reminder of House Cleaning before doing the update.

Make sure that you back up your Bindings file, Appconfig, and Graphicsconfig files PRIOR to doing the update in case things go wonkey.

There are some new Keybinds in 2.2 so it is best to have yours backed up in case.

Also, I am going to suggest that you clear your Internet Explorer cache to keep any issues from happening there. (Google how to do that if you are not sure.)
If you say you don't use IE, well, it is the only thing that EVERY windows program can be sure is installed to pull web content, and the ED Launcher DOES use it even if you have marked it as turned off in Windows Features. It is part of the core OS so you can never really remove it.


In case you are not aware, here are the new Keybinds that you will have to play with:

Dismiss/Recall Ship - Used in the SRV to do what it says.

Fighter/Helm Commands Menu - Hotkey to get to the commands for the fighter or ship depending on which you are in

Attack my Target - Called Focus Fire
Defend Me - What it says
Fire at Will - Aggressive is the term they use.
Hold Fire - Yep
Hold Position - Yep
Fighter/Helm Docking <-- This is NOT what you think. It is to tell the Fighter to dock or tell your ship you want to dock the fighter.


If they have not added others, this should be the new ones that will not have any Bindings.

Good reminder Loriath.

The other thing for people to be aware of is that the introduction of Journals for recording events in E: D means that many helper applications will be getting updates, so don't be surprised if there are a few gremlins.

I'll update the posts for the ScreenShotChanger tomorrow and I see that Artie has posted a heads-up on Inara.

Not seen anything. I don't recall a big update dropping before lunchtime (UK time) though.

I usually give it another day. Launch day is typically filled with patches and crashes.

And rage threads. The rage threads on the official forum can be quite entertaining... No, not really... :)

I always plan on not playing E-D on the days that big updates come out. It's better for my mental well being that way. ;)
