I tried to post this over on the wiki but the comment section wouldn't load so here's the comment:

The keymap out on Google Photos needs the modes for Travel, Scanner, Long Range Scanner and SETA; Shift-1, Shift-2, Shift-3 and Shift-4 respectively, added.

Thanks,

Could we please have a section on Wings and Fleet management, there seems to be a lot of confusion out there on wings and wing management

possible headings could be

* Basic Wing Creation (assign protection fighters to traders and the pros and cons of different methods etc).
* Advanced Wing Creation (assigning multiple wings to a carrier to create fleets)
* Wing Orders (How to give orders to entire wings and how wing formations work)
* Carriers and Destroyers (How to assign multiple wings to a single Carrier / destroyer, how to dock and undock wings to carriers etc.)
* Advanced carriers / Destroyers (how to create destroyer and carrier wings and management tips for large fleets)

Thanks guys (oh by the way, great work people, I am excited to see what he this game will eventually grow into)

As of 27th Jan The manual can no longer be viewed by myself in Chrome or Edge.

The certificate on the page expired at 13:43 today.

Safari on Apple device is constantly prompting for a username and password that I have no idea of or why it’s needed to read a manual. It reappears every 30 seconds to 1 minute.

@ photomankc: Are you sure that's not for whichever app you are using by default to read it? You may have some trial version of an app set as default reader that has now expired. Just a guess though.

It could also be some embedded link in an article that your browser is trying to auto-open that needs a registration to open - these sorts of things do get dropped into public access wikis despite requests to avoid such links. We get this with some forum signatures and avatars too.

Looks like it may be something with the site and Safari on iPhone. Chrome on the PC doesn't do it and Chrome on the iPhone doesn't either. Safari does it every time for me on two different devices.

Cannot access the X4 manual

Post by Falcrack » Thu, 3. Oct 19, 16:00

I tried clicking the "view the manual" link in Steam, and it sends me here:

https://www.egosoft.com:8444/confluence ... y%3DX4WIKI

This site requires a username and login. My egosoft username and login does not work.

Hi,
It seems there is an access issue with the X4 manual and hence the several Wikis. Since 2 days when I try to access them I ended to a Login page.
I've tested with Firefox and Edge.

It was perfectly fine on the 1st October. At this time I'm only able to access to X3 and XR deutsch ones.

Bye

@ Falcrack & Loltak: Yes, it may be a result of some recent server maintenance/reorganisation. The devs are aware of it and working to resolve it.

Sorry for the downtime there. The issue should have been resolved and the manual as well as the wiki should be accessible again.
