Steam Version Beta Report II
« on: December 04, 2017, 10:04:23 PM »
0. Until now I have tried the default mission [The Starter one], Apollo 7 and Apollo 8 (same results, no advance according to what is shown to the user, checklist and auto pilots).
1. Tutorial 3: Fundamental Orbit inclination. Once appears the sign [we are going to change the orbital inclination to 28 degrees. it shouldn't take long. please wait...] the tutorial stops there and do not advance any more.
2. I am not being able for time skipping during tutorials, not even with auto pilot turned off [Time MFD buttons seemed to be blocked, in missions they work].
3. within any mission I have played, the checklist stops and do not continue for the next checklist.
4. no message is displayed to the user regarding the checklist procedure and why it has stopped. [it supposed to be automatic and continuous].
5. pause menu does not stops simulation in background and some times pressing a key while menu options are displaying may affect simulation or menu settings. [this is dangerous for simulation, since could change ship attitude].
6.  the simulation is not fluent and continuous, since the procedures stops without  following the next steps and no message are shown to the user. [in any case the user is required for any input, there is not any message given the necessary information].
7. if the Complete Apollo mission are to be simulated here, then at least should appear in the checklist window certain count down for the next mission comm, in other words (checklist executions) {what ever it is automatic or manual}. 
8. no options for anti aliasing and anisotropic filtering in graphic settings.
9.  needs a keyboard key for showing/hiding top menu.
10. Pause menu should pause entire simulation without affecting the sim running behind.
11. in the Steam site says "full controll support", at least I am using a 360 controller, which is the most used controller for Steam games and it does not recognize the controller for the menus/ navigation, just able to map some keys in controller settings.
12.  Tutorials seems to be for the mobile version and not for this one.
13.  not being able to complete any mission yet, since the simulations do not advance ahead. [once the checklist stops there is no way for choosing the next or another checklist. no message is displayed, no command is given to the user; following the checklists is very important, this is the way how the astronauts did it in real life, by following every procedure in the checklist, so the checklist needs to have all the procedures and to be continuous, so the simulation be realistic ].
14. The sim is oriented to be VR, so once inside the cockpit you will need look around with the help of an analog stick. [other good reason for a complete 360 controller compatibility, even inside the cockpit and for the menus].
15. It would be nice an one click controller Pause/Menu option.

That is everything for now, Thank you.
