Re: Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Just a note;.... Space Engine would not load past the intro image "STARTING" tile after a simple power supply swap on my CyberPower machine. No other work or changes were made on the machine. Using the NVidia Profile Inspector procedure described in post #1561 fixed it. Just be aware the s...

Re: Science and Astronomy Questions

What is the maximum realistic average density of a rocky planet?
I know Earth is around 5.5 g/cm^3 and is one of the densest in our solar system, but
 can they realistically get even heavier, I'm thinking in the 7 to 8 g/cm range?

Re: Science and Astronomy Questions

So..... Would it be possible for a planet to have a ring system that is NOT aligned with it's plane of equatorial rotation? What about significantly off, or even polar? and If a large planet had a moon that was in a polar orbit, but whose axis of rotation still aligned with that of the parent, would...

New Joystick will not control spacecraft, only camera.

Yes, I've definitely programmed for both those categories, camera and ships. I have repeatedly reprogrammed the joystick assignments for the Ship controls, and the values are accepted into the fields (at least it looks like they are, because they display as having gone in). I have tried both editing...

New Joystick will not control spacecraft, only camera.

I have been fighting this issue for a long time now. My new VKG Gladiator joystick replaced my old Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. When first installed, I had trouble programming the Gladiator into SE because SE kept seeing the twist action as an Axis 5 instead of something like Axis 2, and then it would o...

Making ships stay in place

What is the significance of choosing a CLASS when making a ship in Space Engine? Is it just some trivial note in the info legend, or does it really make the ship behave differently? I ask because I want to put an object (not a planet or asteroid) in orbit around a planet that will stay in place and ...

I Cannot get S.E. to see my VKBsim Gladiator NXT joystick. This stick works with all my other games without issues. Recently I replaced my old joystick with a more ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Anybody out there using VKB Gladiator joysticks? Cannot get S.E. to see my VKBsim Gladiator NXT joystick. Recently I replaced my old joystick with a more advanced stick and rudder combo. The very first time it ran, but only with the pitch and roll axis, and ignored the yaw twist axis. But now it jus...

Help, my Space Engine doesn't respond to the Menus anymore....

Space Engine has stopped responding to mouse clicks on menu. Hi; I have SE on a newer gaming computer, and it has been running very well on it for about 6 months now. Recently, however, it has begun to just ignore any mouse clicks when I try to tell it to do anything on the various border edge pop-o...

Help! Cannot get Space Engine running on my new computer....

Thank You. The software worked, now SE runs like velvet on the new machine. It also inadvertently solved another pesky problem I was having on the old machine....that I couldn't get materials to light evenly regardless of sun angle. Now, without making any other changes besides running the  NVIDIA p...

Help! Cannot get Space Engine running on my new computer....

Hello; I cannot get Space Engine to run on my new gaming computer. Used the installer and all the default settings that the installer recommended. When I click on it to start, it shows the starting screen oh so briefly and then just dissappears. I bought this machine mostly to run SE and Blender 3D ...

Space engine will not display past loading screens

Thank You.
Deleting the config file did the trick.
I couldn't find the right keyword search to land on that bug thread.
