Steam beta (1)
« on: February 01, 2018, 10:07:17 AM »
First of all, the current Beta looks quite impressive, thanks for that. After some tries, Ive identified quite a few problems:

  • It seems that the spaceship velocity around Earth is a bit more too high. For an example, with Alt.max 578.76km, Alt. min 138.61km, and current Altitude 143.4km, the velocity should be 7950 m/s, and actually is 7992 m/s.
  • Firing the main engine and shutting it off, the main MFD shows orbital values still modifying during several seconds, making it very difficult to precisely tune the orbital parameters (like minimum altitude).
  • In the main MFD, Fuel % sometimes has impossible values, like 200 or 300%. Hard to say when exactly, but seems to appear after manual staging, or restoring saved scenarios.
  • In the Config/Control panel: if I assign a control to Throttle Up or Throttle Down and close window, the main engine starts at full power and cannot be shutoff.
  • Thrustmaster T.16000M joystick is not recognized (Logitech Extreme 3D Pro is).
And some look and feel remarks:

  • At program startup, Tip of the day window disappears too quickly, making it impossible to read.
  • No text to speech. I am using Windows 7 SP1 French. English TTS has been properly activated in the control panel (the test button gives a normal speech).

As you can see in another thread, same here re TTS. Good that I am not alone. Javier, I truly believe the easiest and quick fix is to provide a separate download of a small pack (zip) with which we will overwrite the space sim steam-provided installation and that will re-enable the originally used internal version of TTS... or integrate this TTS via a plugin that would again be downloaded elsewhere (outside of steam). Would this be possible?
