The problem is that Kickstarter and crowd funding forces devs to promise very aggressive and unrealistic timelines to drum up interest. No one wants to fund a game that will be in development for four years.
Which is fine but how many times did they delay the dogfight module now?
If you keep giving people release dates, people expect you to deliver on those dates. Well so far they've delivered excuses and towels for your hanger

Battlefield series won't see a yearly release anytime soon
I know this is not Dice developing this game but still.
No annual BF game guys no worries, few months later they announce a new BF game.

There are plenty of other games out there, can't people play those while they wait for SC?
No because they've hyped SC up so much that people are on the edge to play it.
So much so that some people continually throw money at it. Hoping that it will make that game come out sooner.
I think at this point more money will not help this game to be finished sooner. Some focus on the development side of things would however.

Half their forum threads concerning this delay are smattered with people shitting on Elite.
I think I saw 1 or 2 threads mentioning this delay on the Elite forum, and those were locked pretty quickly too.
Maybe people backing Elite are a bit more mature than the avg SC backer.

SM, how do you like that TrackIR? I keep almost pulling the trigger then scatter braining off in another direction. Haven't been playing anything to use it with lately anyway but there are a number of upcoming titles I could definitely see some use for it.
I like it a lot but it does take some adjustments to feel right. I play racing games, Arma, and now Elite and some other games that uses it. Initially got it for Euro Track Sim2
If you are tight for money or don't think you'll use it much there are DIY alternatives: http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=15316

The TrackIR initial cost can be a bit steep if you only use it for one game.

definitely stop giving release dates for anything.
Unless they know for sure they can deliver.
They've been trying to deliver this dogfight module for about 6 months now.
By all means take the time and make it right but why bother with unrealistic release dates and then keep coming up with excuses.

Looking at the weekly news letters and stuff I think they do so many things at the same time as opposed to focus on making the game.
They have these "TV show" style videos with space ship competitions and stuff.
Couldn't this wait until after the game is finished?

No problem
By mouse button I meant Joystick or controller button. Not too many people plays with mouse and kb but it is possible never the less, it's just harder than using a joystick.

OK, last question (giggling that elite has taken over the SC thread): I think I have like a 560 GTX at home (can't remember). Is it going to run like shit on that? (Looking at watchdogs performance) It's finally looking like I might need to upgrade my video card, but I really wasn't wanting to do that right now...

edit: (Thanks!)
Not sure how it would run on your PC, I have a 760 GTX and it runs fluid on my machine. In comparison the SC hangar module runs like shit. I am getting like 30-40fps running around the hanger.
I haven't started up fraps to check frame rate in Elite but it is at least 60fps
Check their forum: http://forums.frontier.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=30
They have a few threads about this but I can not find them atm

Edit: found one - http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8231

Spectral, does the game feature Newtonian motion? Or to put it more simply can i get manual thruster control? I.E. Can I fire main engines to set me goin in one direction, and then change my attitude so that I face in a different direction (while continuing my motion in the first direction) to do strafing runs or the like? (Think battlestar galactica)
Yes, many people have the "flight assist" mapped to one of their mouse button and they toggle on and off to make quick turns.
Here is a video demonstrating it: http://youtu.be/1KAJuR5giGo

If you want the premium beta which starts tomorrow it is $150 but it also includes all the DLC packs that will be released for the game.
The regular beta is $80 I believe, but no release date announced for that yet.

Ouch...expensive. Im on the fence between this and IL2:BOS. IL2 has more polish and is feature locked, its also cheaper so Ill probably go in that direction....Decisions, decisions....argh...
Just get both
IL2 does look really good, watched some gameplay vids last night.
However I've gotta lay low for a bit or my wife will have my head. Have to figure out how to hide the CC statements for a few month

Please let me now how you like it. I'm a penny pincher, I won't be able to join you before the release of the final version, WHICH MIGHT COME OUT BEFORE Star Kitten DF Module!
I love it so far but only have access to the old Alpha 1.1 build
Made a few videos of some beginner dog fighting, as I am practicing with my joystick and TrackIR.
It's been 10+ years since I've used a joystick for any game

Here are my vids:

Does it support gamepads, currently?

Elite does, lot of people uses x360 controller. You can play m+kb too if you want to, but a lot of people go for cheaper HOTAS controllers
like this one

I've just sent this news to Blue!

They should just keep quiet until they are ready to release it.
In other news Elite beta is out tomorrow, and my X-55 RHINO is being delivered today! It's going to be a good weekend!

How much $$$ to get in the beta? Im seriously considering it...

More video is always welcome....I'm seriously close to pulling the trigger on elite myself. How much SP is there, currently?

Thanks!
These are a single player scenarios that are available in the SP

Wait until tomorrow when they will actually release the beta and give us the details of what's included.
Info should all be in the newsletter that comes out tomorrow.

So is the finished game going to cost less or is $59.99 and $99.99 are the final prices?
Some games cost more for Early Access than finished, that is why I am wondering.

This is Battlefield: Pay-Day.
Of course. After David Goldfarb left Dice ones BF3 was finished, he made Pay-Day2 and it turned out to be a successful game.
Dice figured why be original when they can just copy someone else, then DLC the shit out of it.
