IIRC the major problem WRT DX10+ was the MS licensing lockin (& subsequent costs etc); once focused upon OpenGL & other similar open techs this became less of a problem.

Lots of forum posts covered this back in the day.. However I may be talking thru my hat, if I had a hat :)

Never played AP; all X3 advice is based on vanilla+bonus pack TC or before: AP has not changed much WRT general advice.

Will press outlets be able to attend XCon, or is it a "fans only, no pictures" type of event?
Admitting you have a problem is the first step in figuring out how to make it worse.

Ancient player showing his face due to the X4 announcement.

I realise its just been announced and its probabably some way off but could you give any indication of time scale?

Is it just starting development or are you announcing because you are getting close to alpha/beta stage?

I'm not looking for a release date just an idea of when you're aiming for. Any info appreciated.

Looking forward to a true X4....bring it on!

Sounds very exciting, would definitely like any presentations to be recorded/streamed, Germany is a bit too far from Australia for a weekend trip :P

Regarding buying for Rift vs Vive.

If I buy on steam, presumably using my steam credits and with supporter discount etc. does it still support the Oculus Rift inputs 100%, or is the Oculus store version for oculus and the steam store version for vive?

Also, if I buy on steam can I use with BOTH headsets (at different times of course... does it detect which one or is there a settings option to switch input method like gesture steering vs joystick steering).

Hi. Big fan of X Universe. Most played game on steam? X Rebirth :D :o

X3:AP and SPAZ are my games that are on my laptop when I travel. It’s a work laptop so have to keep low resource game, but X Rebirth is my top game at home.

When I got the email saying that X4 is a thing, man, was very happy that X universe is going to “expand” again :D, now the email from last night make me sad…:cry:

I can’t go to XCon for several reasons, mostly because I live on the middle of the Atlantic ocean and is to dam expensive to go anywhere and work, but most important is that X4 is getting some more news.

My question is if you guys are going to stream your event, do youtube videos, give some/more information to the “world” during and/or after the even? :?

If you read the X-News again, you will notice that at the bottom it says that there's the idea of streaming at least a part of the event online and that you will read about the Highlights of the XCon in the next X-Universe News edition. Additionally, there are press events scheduled during the Gamescom. So information about X4 should find their way to you, even if you are not able to attend the XCon. ;)
