I have not played Rebirth since about 6 weeks after release. Have things been fixed. Is it worth giving it another try?

There have been many updates since release.

These days, whilst there are some things that you could do in X3 games that you can't in Rebirth, the opposite is also true. If you own it already, there's no harm in firing it up and checking it out.

A fairly recent similar thread. Also be aware that a Public Beta of even further updates is in progress just now.

I say this as someone who utterly despised the game in its stat at original release (and, to be honest, even after the first couple of major updates) - it is now at a point where I can heartily say that it's worth playing.

Besides...

The game is now (well for quite some patches now, but even more so in its 4.0 state) in the state where it should have been at release. It still leaves this impression of being a "baby" X game, but it's very much worth playing.

In many aspects it actually surpasses the X3 games (even X3AP). It's just that it's also lacking some stuff (features/content) from those games so it's not a 100% win, but it's a good X game nonetheless. Also Ego's support has been stellar, no pun intended, even if it was arguably required, granted how much of a mess the game was at release. But they still fixed it, so Kudos to that.

One of the biggest problems I had previously was configuring the control to my joystick (Thrustmaster Hotas X) has there been any improvement in this field?

If memory serves, there a few threads concerning this issue in the past year.
You might want to browse back a few page on either this forum or the tech support forum, but I think people had found solutions and workarounds for the different issues.

Just as an advice : I would not use savegames from that early, using a version 1.X savegame might still have tons of bugs even if you load it in a 4.X version, a fresh clean start might be the better option in order to avoid any potential complications.

But yea, if you like the concept of the X games the game is definitely worth playing now. Be aware that the current beta version has some bugs so if you want the best experience you should not use the 4.1 beta version but use the normal 4.0 version until 4.1 is releeased.

I'm getting a Steam controller for Christmas, so I'm waiting for 4.1 offical to drop, then going to try and new game with the controller. Not had a lot of luck with the X-Box controller I have, so hoping I make the Steam controller work for me. I'm not really a good controller player Shocked

Why don't you simply use mouse + keyboard? X games shouldn't be played with a controller, and usually don't work to well with a joystick either Razz

Up till Reunion, I actually found the mouse system really clunky and imprecise, and I found joystick to be more suited, but as of X3TC I have to agree - I now prefer the KB+mouse, even despite losing some access to simultaneous multi-axial manoeuvreing. However, I've never owned a controller for my PC (it's not a console! Razz hehehhe), so I can't really speak to how good or bad that option is, for them Xs. (Incidentally, is the 'X' button on the Xbox controller a win-button in X-titles? Razz )

Just to get 3 points of view across,, The controller is for the limited controls of consoles .... The mouse and keyboard is a step up and is fine for point and click adventures and typing... The Joystick/HOTAS is used by those that have managed to master the numerous control buttons while multi tasking Smile
The Joystick/HOTAS works just perfectly and is far superior to the simpler forms of input....... (In my opinion)

Sadly, my joystick died some time ago, and I've been unable to replace it, but I did enjoy playing with it (wait, that sounds all wrong! Razz ) However, losing it (that ALSO sounds wrong!) proved to be a blessing in disguise, as otherwise I would never have tried KB+M, which I discovered gives FAR superior precision, at the expense of at least one axis of motion. Given the chance, however, I WOULD use it again (yet again, that sounds wrong...), but in combination with KB+M - best of both worlds Smile

Luckily I never lost it and still enjoy playing with it,,,,,, (yes...it does read wrong as well)..and yes the combination KB/mouse + Joystick is best... That was so hard (see innuendo again) not to go down a mucky path....
