. /../Noctis CE Problem/ 1
written by Dark_light on May 20, 2007 16:34
Everytime I play Noctis CE it works just fine. But then when I set the Parisis Cordnats it goes all funny. I put in the numbers 0,0,0 and it went there and all...yadda yadda. I went to the Find Local Target thingy and Blackyastreya or whatever it's called wasn't there!!! Did they get rid of it???

If I didn't explain it right please ask questions and I can give further details.

Thx

Balastrakonastreya is a star. Stars are never local targets (unless you're in a multiple system but let's not go there).

If you're at (0;0;0) you'll find that Balastrakonastreya is the closest star in the 'remote target' selector.

Due to stellar drift, Set Target to Parsis does not bring you straight to a star, instead, it brings you to the galactic sector the star is in. From there, you can either do as Xeno said, and find the star manually by using "set remote target", or you can do it automatically by typing "ST balastra" in the GOES console.

If you didn't read the manual, it's in the docs folder, there's other help files in there too. If you did read the manual, you probably just didn't retain it all. Practice a bit and read the manual again, I did that until I memorized what each star class is, but you don't really need to do that

No no no I did what you guys said before! I couldn't find it in the remote target finder thing! But when I did search for it it wasn't there! Instead there where weird stars that appeared twice and somethimes 3 times. And I figured out that when I go somewhere else really far away and look at the remotes targets they are the same as the ones in the other side of the galaxy!!!

Maybe there is something wrong with my game???

There appears to be something wrong with the Starmap in NICE R11.5fix, since I can't see any named stars either. I am not aware of any fix at the moment other than trying an older version. Strangely, it seems to be working normally for some, since it has not been reported before (well it was, once, but no one seemed to take notice).

I know it's pretty weird. Hopefully it will be gone in the next Noctis CE release. Would they allow you to report it?

OK, not really much of an idea what's wrong now. If you install Noctis IV (Not NICE) with fresh files and everything we could figure out if it has anything at all to do with your system or NICE O_o

It also might help if you clearly explain *everything* you're doing, so we can get a better picture of your situation.

Oh, and although it doesn't annoy me much, there's some really touchy people on this forum. Try to stay calm and go easy on the question marks and exclamation marks when you post

The Starmap in R11.5fix is either caused by:

1) You didn't install it correctly. R11.5fix should be applied to R10.. If I recall correctly that is. . Check to see if there's are starmap*.* and guide*.* files in your DATA folder.

2) Not enough Conventional Memory causes things to go weird. One of the things it'll can make weird is the Starmap. This is most likely the error here. Try using STold and/or ST and see if that would work.

Checked and done. No change. Strangely, the ST command does seem to find stars, but I get an "can't find system" error when I try to activate the drive

My guess is that this is indeed probably the cause. The Starmap does work in DWNoctis, but not in either the alternate or normal Go!.exe's.

Do you happen to know what version of Noctis IV CE you are using?? Grabbed Release 10 and applied any updates to it, or..?
written by Dark_light on May 26, 2007 03:55
I'm using version 11 if I remember right,

If you're using the latest Windows version of Noctis IV CE, the resolution is stretched up to 640x400, which will appear larger than the prior version. You can get the latest version of that here, and just place it in your NICE folder and run WNoctis from there. If it still seems to be too small, you can right click on WNoctis, select properties, and check "run in 640x480" from the compatibility tab. This will temporarily drop your desktop resolution while running it, which should make the window fill most of the screen.
