Spaceship Ahoy - Elite: Dangerous

The Elite: Dangerous forums announce the official release of Elite: Dangerous, as version 1.00 of Frontier Developments' space combat sequel is now available. The game's official website is non-responsive at the moment, but that forum post has some details:
A 30 year legacy, and more than 2 years of development, and we're thrilled to announce that Elite: Dangerous 1.00 is out now, available for download and play.

Thanks to everyone who played this far - see you in space Commanders.

Ed (and the whole of the Elite: Dangerous development team)

Change log for those updating from Gamma:

  • Prevent missions softlocks when switching servers from A->B->A without disconnecting from A
  • Check if we should use the neutron star's version of the bolometric luminosity first to prevent soft lock
  • Avoid crash in creating a location object when it hits a rare window
  • Sky box view distance altered to reduce memory usage in highly populated regions

Ah, right -- Proton. Could not think of it last night.

I believe there is an app for it. Pretty sure Redeye is using Pop! OS and gaming on it.
BoP recommended Pop! OS due to how it handles the hybrid Nvidia graphics on my laptop.

Proton does the bulk of the non-native gaming.

What is Proton?
Proton is a new tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux as simple as hitting the Play button within Steam. Underneath the hood, Proton comprises other popular tools like Wine and DXVK among others that a gamer would otherwise have to install and maintain themselves. This greatly eases the burden for users to switch to Linux without having to learn the underlying systems or losing access to a large part of their library of games. Proton is still in its infancy so support is inconsistent, but regularly improving.

I have yet to give Apple a penny of income, so I see no reason to start now. BoP will tell you Linux does games just fine, he may be right. But I'm too lazy at this point to switch.
It's a pain in the butt for non-native Linux games. I don't even have time to game!

Definitely with you on that. I haven't seen a single good thing about Win11 to date.
I really macOS and Linux had much softwares like games.

Yep, it was 64 bit, Win7 for me too. Only went to Win10 when I got the new PC.

Yeah. I tried updating my video card, but Windows was being difficult. After messing around with it for a bit, I gave in and sent the card back. Still the Nvidia 660 GTX did me well for a long time...
Which video card and Windows version? I was still on reliable 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 and ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of VRAM). I got lucky with another friend gave me his unwanted used GeForce 750 GTX Ti (2 GB of VRAM) at work when video cards are difficult to get! I was fine with it! It's better than the onboard Intel GPU!

Damn, beat me. I bought a new PC in May 2020, but my previous rig was only 7.5 years old.
I was surprised how long it lasted just keeping it clean and not gaming so much like I used to. Its EVGA motherboard decided to suicide during that last clean up. It was booting up and then kept locking up even in BIOS screen! And then, it refused to boot up anymore. I was supposed to use it for my new Linux PC to replace the 12 years old Debian Jessie v8 PC. :~(

I use a Thrustmaster T.Flight -- it seems to get mixed reviews but worked like a charm for me. I have over 700 hours using it and had no problems. After a while I considered "upgrading" to one of the more expensive setups, but decided -- "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
That is what I do with lots of things these days. Hence, why I finally upgraded my primary decade old PC last year.

Since you aren't doing VR are you at least using a HOTAS? Definitely adds to the experience.
Nope. Keyboard, mouse, and joystick. Nothing like the one they had in Frontier's booth with hits throttle, joystick, etc.

Your link... I thought it was going to show a list of the top threads or something, but it just goes to a choose a date function. So, I just made a random guess at what you meant to show us... which I thought might be some theoretical thread post limit...
Oh, look at the left side in its "All-Time Threads" section.
