My website is moving back to its old host after having a lot of trouble with the current host, in the process we are switching to different software. That means the links to my guides will break over the weekend.

I'll pm replacement links to the moderators once the guides are back up.

And yes, I'll make sure they can be cut and pasted Graph :)

Hit weapon selection key - I believe G is default (guns) - there you click on turret and select available weapon, if you have it. Further more in ship command menu (c or shift+c, other ship or yours ship) select turret behavior, number of options there will depend on fight command software present.

Assuming you're playing X3:TC and your ship has turrets at all: it's actually the same way you equip your front weapons. You open the ships weapons menu (standard key is 'g'), scroll to the turret and its bay you like to equip and press 'Enter'. If you have weapons in your cargo room that can be installed in that bay (and no weapon is installed) the first entry in the opening context menu should be "Install laser...". Pressing 'Enter' or '->' opens a list of weapons that can be installed in that turret bay. Selecting a weapon using the arrow keys and pressing Enter again will install it.

Ahh im so stupid......Should have realised that, but thanks!

1 more question tho:
If a ship has weapons in the cargo bay they seem to be installed automatically to the weapon bays. Is this true for turrets also?

Edit:
Also what are the rules for Ships on standby in space/at stations in connection with getting destroyed/booted from the station by the hosting Kingdom?
Just captured a pirate ship and as it was on hold next to me with no orders a boron military ship just shut it down, even after i claimed it:(

Thanks Graph :)

I had some problems with my host provider, like they could not keep my website open because their servers could not handle the load of a mildly busy players website.

So I had to move to a better host and switched software in the process, hence the broken links.

Just wanted to ask if my guide will be made a sticky, or listed in guides list?

Post by alison22000 » Sat, 12. Nov 11, 03:57

I made a controls listings guide for X - Beyond the Frontier in March 2010.

I made the controls guide in order to help many players find and learn all the controls a lot easier, because in game during the tutorial, the game has a lot going on and many players miss key controls told to them, because they are focusing on an attack or something else.

In this Guides list there are absolutely no Guides or anything in reference to X- Beyond the Frontier PC game, so it makes me wonder, since I did make a very easy to understand and direct guide, makes me wonder why the guide has not even been considered as a guide in the list here, and I sincerely believe, that if my guide was listed in this guides list, then it will help a lot more players, and not to mention that it will also help the players locate the guide quicker, if listed in this guides page.

If you wish to contact me for any reason, please do so, with my registered email address. But I do ask that you please give my Guide another look over to consider the Guide to be listed here as I feel my guide has been missed and do believe the guide should reside in this list until a better one is created by myself or another player.

My guide can be found at this link

Thank you for hearing my request :)

Yours Sincerely

Added.

A guide can only be added if we are aware of it. We don't go hunting around all the internet to find them.

Spike's Walkthroughs for AP are going to come in a few days; they'll be tached onto the end of the existing core post (see sig) so no changes will be necessary in this resource thread. Just keep an eye on the X-Universe forums (or my sig link).

I've only just started playing a few hours ago, building up so that I can begin the plot.

You might want to separate them out since people will likely look for them separately.
