Rebel Galaxy Outlaw

Xbox controller. Can’t be beat.

So I go into Gamestop to buy a used one and ask for an Xbox controller and I will get the right one? Is there more than one? Official? Third-party?

I did play Freelancer with mouse and keyboard so I’m not married to a joystick. I just have so many happy memories of Privateer.

Get an official Xbox One wireless controller.

If buying used, make sure it’s the newer bluetooth model, with the 3.5mm jack (the old ones needed a dongle).

And get a play-and-charge kit so you can recharge it, unless you prefer to use AAs of course.

Or wired. Wired is better. Xbox one regardless.

Yup, if you’re playing on a desktop PC, why not? No battery life worries!

Exactly. fist bump

I’ve had to restart my entire game 3x because I keep losing massive amounts of money (all my money) at pool. What the heck is wrong with me? I haven’t even dogfighted yet.

Haha, I’m there with you too! I can’t sit for 45 minutes when I have a game to play.

So anyone else taking notes from the bartender? Is that necessary? Note: I have squandered my starts and still not left port LOL.

EGS turned me into Monsieur.Tibbs. :(

Don’t waste money on a play and charge kit. It just uses micro usb. To play wireless on PC your PC needs bt or buy the $15 Xbox one controller dongle.

I’m a little confused as to where the autosave is dropping me off after I die or choose to exit to the main menu. Does it save progress as you go? Restart everything from the moment you left the space station?

I’m trying to do some experimenting, exploring that “something nice in quadrant 11 near Texas”, and I can’t tell if it’s saving me post or pre encounter or what. After I forced myself to die running into a freighter it didn’t seem to send me back to where I started, but right in that sector…

Well, I just played close to two hours and have started getting the hang of the basics. Ton of fun. This is going to eat up my weekend for sure.

I don’t know about anyone else but I am going to hear all of Travis’s voices in my head tonight when I sleep. I hear him all over while waking. It’s like Skyrim all over again.

I can’t seem to change the radio channel on the gamepad. It says in setting to use RB and LB but that doesn’t work. Any ideas?

Did you call up the command menu first with the Y button (assuming you’re using the Xbox One gamepad)?

Do you think Rebel Galaxy Outlaw was going to break EGS when Metro Exodus or Dauntless or World War Z or Satisfactory didn’t? Never mind they use the same system to distribute updates to who knows how many millions Fornite players.

Two very minor complaints:

The sound mix appears overall too loud. Beeps, notifications etc. Played with both 2.0 (Gigaworks T20 speakers), monitor built in speakers (that has always been low volume even when maxed out for everything else including Windows system sounds, Anthem and The Division 2) and Logitech G933 in virtual surround 7.1 mode.

The monitor speakers have never been so loud with anything else ever than with this game.

#2 minor annoyance is when I go to the launch pad from the concourse I don’t expect pressing B to launch me into space since there’s a button right next for that. I expected it to take me back to the station. Granted I got conditioned quickly because I played for 4 whole hours but did anyone else have this expectation that pressing B would go back/cancel our of launch pad?

Nope. It’s great. You’re in the bar or the commodities menu or whatever, and you want to get to space quick? Just hammer on the B button.

I tried with my Xbox 360 controller but I just can’t. It’s too heavy and I just don’t have any control over anything. Has anyone tried it with teh PS4 one? I always preferred the PS controllers since I only own PS consoles throughout the years. Does it work on PC? If it does I may buy one to try it.

I played a bit with mouse but got reamed mostly because I have no idea what’s happening. “Shields down, hull breached” is my theme song.

I did figure out another issue I had though. I felt that the protagonists voice sounded tinny, even in RG. I figured out it’s my Dolby Digital Surround thing. When I turn it on voices get tinny and it’s super noticeable for the Female Voice but it’s actually all of them. Without Dolby I don’t have good 3d Sound though and it’s a bit flat. Will have to tinker some.

Happens to me all the time and annoys me greatly too. That’s not how it behaves in other screens, is it?

Yes, I just did this exact thing, set off before I’d finished looking at missions. First time in space, no idea what to do, hit autopilot which took me… somewhere, and then died during a pirate attack. I wasn’t really concentrating admittedly, trying to figure out how to control ship speed and where the speed indicators are. Time to watch Travis’ Welcome video.

Performance is pretty poor on my rig. I haven’t updated the nvidia driver for a few months so I’ll start there, otherwise time to start turning things down!
