I wasn't sure what your reference was, then I saw you're referring to a bug listed in the first post of the thread.
The only solution is waiting for a fix in one of the next updates.

I got the problem I mentioned here fixed. Anyway, here's something minor yet still strange:
scr02885.jpg

At the bottom of the journey log, it says in the entry (but not in the mouseover popup) that the last star I visited was a "lack hole", rather than a "Black hole" as it actually is. What could possibly be omitting the "B"? I don't think it's the length of the star's RS-code or its parent's RS-code, as that screenshot shows entries with longer RS-codes.

Could you please attach your se.log file which is located in your SpaceEngine/system/ folder, as requested in the topmost message of this thread?

Bran Noircorbac,
[MT] Number of joysticks detected: 1
[MT] Joystick 0 (0):    4-axis 0-ball 13-button 1-hats "Usb Gamepad"

Did you try using SpaceEngine without the gamepad attached? Does it load some specific Windows utility or driver that emulates keyboard presses?
Because this could easily change the behavior of the keyboard. Also check your Controls Menu (F8) when the gamepad is attached to see if there are conflicting combinations.

I've noticed an apparent regression in Space Engine (or possibly a feature removal?) between versions 9.7.1 and 9.7.2, and still present in 9.8.0.
Namely, galactic halos in disk galaxies seem to have disappeared at radii greater than approximately 20 kly. In 9.7.1 and earlier, halos extend to at least the radius of the disk in all directions from the galactic center. In 9.7.2 and later, halos end abruptly at just over 20 kly. This is rather unfortunate, as planets in the far halo tend to have really spectacular views of the galactic disk.
Is this intentional or a problem with the procedural generation of halo stars?

I'm having a strange issue. When flying around the default Solar System with Addon fictive planet "Planet X", which I ported over from Rob Sanders' Celestia Addon, and when it is near perihelion, flying spacecraft around Earth or in the air is problematic, as the spacecraft will mistakenly register "Planet X" as the nearest body, instead of Earth, even when in Earth's atmosphere. This is present across all spacecraft types, even with "Planet X" 10 AU's away.

I've noticed that white dwarfs no longer have a gravitational lensing effect.  I don't see any mention of this anywhere else on the forum, so maybe it's a weird problem with my install.

It's not just you, and I think this is a "fix".  The gravitational lensing around a white dwarf is pretty weak compared to a neutron star or black hole.  To give an idea, light which passes 2 radii from a black hole is bent by almost 60 degrees.  Light which passes 2 radii from a white dwarf is bent by only a few hundredths of a degree.

(Actually the deflection angle that close to a black hole is quite a bit bigger, since the formula I use ([math]) isn't very accurate there, but for the white dwarf it's pretty accurate.)

Space Engine keeps crashing every time I hold shift and the left mouse key when trying to zoom in and out of planets, stars, etc.
