Can I use a controller with a slider?
When using a controller with a slider, you may run into some difficulty configuring your controller in the launcher's configuration menu. If the slider is not set to zero or to a neutral position the controller will be sending an active signal from the slider that may register when you select a controller function to configure. This will result in the slider being chosen as the command for that function unless it is set to an inactive state.
How do I Adjust the Volume for Movies?
If you wish to adjust the volume that movies are playing, you should adjust the Voice Volume level while in the Sound Options area of the main menu.
How do I run STAR WARS™ Starfighter?
To run the game, click on your Start Menu, select Programs, then LucasArts, then STAR WARS™ Starfighter and click on Play STAR WARS™ Starfighter. This will bring up the Launcher screen. Click on Play STAR WARS™ Starfighter on the launcher and it will begin the game. Although it is possible to run the executable directly off of the hard drive, we recommend that you use the shortcuts the installer creates in the Start Menu or the shortcut to STAR WARS™ Starfighter which might be created on the desktop during installation.
How do I start a new game if I've been playing previously?
If you have been playing the game and completed a few missions, or have loaded a previous savegame, there is only one way to start a completely new game beginning at the first mission. You must exit the game to the desktop, launch STAR WARS™ Starfighter again, and then choose an empty slot from the Load Game window. This will start you off with a new game for a fresh playthrough from the first mission, without the later missions being unlocked. Any mission can be selected for play again if you have attempted or completed it during the current play session or savegame.
How do I use the keyboard for flight control?
In order to utilize the Keyboard for flight controls (pitch/yaw), all other controllers must be removed from the system first. If a joystick or gamepad is installed on a system, the flight controls will default to those controllers, and they keyboard will not function.
The Space Bar is working like the enter key during Menu Navigation
While in the menu system, the Space Bar performs the same function as the Enter key. Because of this, spaces are not allowed when entering a code or naming a savegame.
What Desktop Color Palette should I use?
We recommend that you set your desktop to High Color (16 bit) color or higher. When playing STAR WARS™ Starfighter with your desktop set to a color palette lower than 16 bit, you may experience various problems while running the game.
