Frontier: Elite II Veteran Commander

Postby SkydivinGirl » Mon Apr 16, 2018 6:48 pm

Greetings Commanders!

I waited forever to start playing Elite: Dangerous and am now a bit sad that I did! This is so much like Frontier on the Amiga, which is a good thing. :)

It's got a bit of a learning curve but I'm really enjoying the game. I don't know what I'd do without forums and YouTube to help explain some of the information. Is there a manual somewhere?

I'm playing on PS4 and hating that there's no VR support. Other than that, it's a pretty good system to play on. Feel free to drop a friend request!

No manual. Well nothing half as good as just googling and YouTube videos.

Like most of these games that keep going for a while. If there was a manual it's probably three years out if date.

Welcome to black.

Yeah. Sad that even the Pro can't push the necessary pixels to justify VR support. A little bird told me that PS5 development models have been out with developers for a while already, so maybe next year?

Welcome and fly safe.

The pro is barely comparable to a five year old i5 with an GTX 960 with extra VRAM.

There is a reason I have an i7 8700k with 16GB 3200mhz RAM (faster RAM is important for VR) and a 1080ti.
And its still holding back Elite in VR, mostly since ED is getting old in the tooth and has sections in it's code that are terrible optimised, but that's the reality of it.

Adding VR support for the ps4 would be an unmitigated train wreck, heck the ps4 pro can barely do 1080p at 60fps if it dials down graphics.

Welcome.

I hate to do this w/o checking, but I think there is a link to a manual, probably a bit out of date, on the launcher. There are also the tutorial videos. And as I type this I realize that these things may not be available for non-PC players. D'oh! :roll:

fwiw

It's time to give this another go.
