Okay, I just got the game, used. Why does it seem to dump me in a totally unfamilar ship and expect me to have ANY idea how to steer or shoot? It dumps me right in the middle of combat?


Oh, I forgot, this is a Microsoft product, it is deliberately designed to be worthless and frustrating.

Look in the CD read me file. It gives a listing of the hot keys to fly and shoot with. You use the mouse to control the ship, and it just takes a litttle etting use to, thats all. You can ignor King and fly around, getting use to the controls, just don't bump into the planet.

Don't panic. FL's Missions are designed with a very good difficulty curve, and when the game stops and posts a message up... read it, it will walk you through how to play the game. The first "mission", where the Order shows up... just fly around and avoid getting killed. Do not worry, it's virtually impossible to die on that mission... it just looks like all Heck is breaking loose

Ummm ... have you thought of clicking on F1, and then selecting options to bring up the controls and see what they are?

All that ^^ plus a little simple trial and error. After all, you ain't bin lanced untill you have flown into a planet while learning the mouse controls.
