My speed reverses sometimes and it has been happening more and more as time goes on. Can someone please explain?

You will need to give more details of which X game, how exactly your 'speed reverses', what ship and in what circumstances.

The only possibilities that spring to mind without such information are as follows:

1. Your ship is set to follow/escort or be followed/escorted by another ship.

2. You are in a captured/bailed ship that has *not* had its previous orders from its life as an NPC ship cancelled by giving it the order 'none' before giving it other commands or flying it.

3. You are (sometimes) using the 'flight assist off' option that gives more Newtonian flight.

4. Your keyboard, mouse, joystick or controller (as appropriate) has a stick, button or throttle problem such as poor calibration, incorrect deadzone or a stuck/intermittent button.

5. Your game is modded incorrectly.

I'm a fully upgraded Mercury Supertanker S, I can't find M or L and z is my reverse I have not modded anything about it.

Running Humble Merchant so I haven't had a chance to capture a vessel like that.

Oh btw I'm playing X3 AP.

You need to explain in more detail exactly what is happening, i.e., what do you mean by your speed is reversing. Are you flying along and your speed suddenly reverses? What controllers are you using, i.e., keyboard, mouse, joystick (brand), game controller, etc.? Having the speed reverse is not a known issue so you'll need to help us understand what's going on.

Off-topic: There are no "S", "M", or "L". See FAQ

"I have not modded anything about it [the ship]"

I didn't just mean your ship, is your game modded at all by 3rd party mods or scripts?

Have you checked all the things I already mentioned such as follow/escort issues? Having your trade ship followed or escorted by say a fighter that is badly damaged could be enough to mess with the uniformity of its speed.

Otherwise I have to suspect an input device issue.

Now that we know it is X3AP, have you verified the gamefiles caches for X3TC and X3AP separately (if from Steam)?

Yes it's from Steam and it's vanilla version of X3 AP and no on escort running. Though I do have a fighter but it's not running escort duties.

What do you mean by "speed reverses", exactly?

I'm wondering if you are flying on autopilot? If you are, it does at times set the speed to zero, then back to full throttle. It does happen to me a lot in AP. I cannot remember if it did that in TC. It's been too long since I've played that.

My speed was at 0 but now it's -10 in a flash, that's what I mean. I left my ship out in space overnight and when I woke up it had sped in reverse the whole night. I had to reload from my last save. I'm a merchant and I had ships working for me that night.

Sounds like you have a continuous reverse speed control input somewhere. That could be a stuck key or button, or perhaps poor calibration or deadzone on a joystick, throttle or controller. Sometime that input comes from an input device that is still plugged in but not even used for this game.

(We cannot really help much more as we keep asking you to check and describe your system input devices and set up without any useful reply.)

Are you playing with a keyboard?
In that case, the Y-key [or Z, depending on the layout; I speak about the first letter key in the 'lowest' key-row, the same row as the SHIFT-keys] could be the problem.
Go to game-settings and change that key to a non-used key (like $ e.g.). Check if the 'reverse-speed' occurs again.
If not, clean your keyboard Wink

Do you have any pets that may have stepped on the keyboard while you were leaving it running? Laughing
