Yes, definately, create a new save once something new happens in the simulation. I have finished STS-8 and got a badge btw, it was just a bug with RMS stuck in Reach Lim both in Shoulder and Elbow after moving the first PFTA cargo. Just selected the proper save, loaded it and continued the mission normally. Saving is very important. Good luck!

Yeah ... I should probably save more often. Many thanks for the advice, but I think I'm just going to start over. Happy flying!

I have sucessfully landed the STS-26 mission with a Chandra satellite sticking 45 degrees up from the payload bay. Seems funny, but bug happened: computer gives me a command to rise the satellite for launch, I comply. Then I am given the comm to position a Shuttle at the angle for satellite launch. Here all difficulties start, I enter PYR values from the checklist, they don't work (perhaps were made for earlier versions of the game), I am trying to position a Shuttle with a joystick (I am flying with a flight stick) and each time the yellow horizontal bar passes the central ADI horizontal reticle nothing happens. Then I get a command that satellite already at Stage 1. Then a command to prepare for deorbit (while satellite is still sticking, I guess that rise button does not foresee the possibility to lower the payload bay cargo). Fine, I follow all the commands, stow the radiators, KU antenna, close the payload bay (with sticking satellite) and go for re-entry sequences. Landed successfully and satellite was still sticking up with Shuttle already standing on a runway with a mission complete status and badge in achievements. Though in reality such de-orbiting and re-entry would have been a disaster.

So, basically, if computer orders you further sequences follow them and go for de-orbit, re-entry and landing. If it shows "No-go" then you might wait until Shuttle completes a new orbit and COMM might change, but if that does not happen and you are already in deorbit procedures - then you should restart the mission, or load an earlier save where the problem could be still fixed.

Hello astronaut,

If the RMS is stuck during the deorbiting preparation sequence I am afraid to say that, but the mission is screwed. No way around it. You may try leaving Shuttle orbiting in "NO GO" mode, that takes long as time skip does not work with this mode, and hope that COMM changes to radiator stow, KU antenna stow and payload bay door close sequence. But there is no guarantee that this will happen. So you basically have three options now: 1) Try to manipulate the RMS to lift the "Reach LIM" limit and extract your EVA; 2) Wait until shuttle does a whole new orbit and COMM sequence changes to other deorbit preparations, in this case you will land with a bug, but have mission count as completed and get a badge; 3) Re-start the mission;

This is a known issue, for example, I have screwed a sussesfully done STS-8 a couple of days ago, while dragging the PFTA cargo with RMS, in the result both shoulder and elbow got in a "REACH LIM" mode, stuck and cannot move, and park accordingly when you have to Zero all joints during landing preparation sequence.

When you stay up all night to do a Mission Marathon knowing that you have a final in the morning...  Cheesy

The keys for the RMS are simple: - and + control the elbow, 9 and 3 control the shoulder, / and * control yaw, and then there are the end effector controls: 8 and 2 are pitch, 0 and . (or your insert and delete keys) are yaw, and 4 and 6 are roll. i hope you find this helpful!

Howdy there!

I was performing STS-88 on EVA, and I was bringing the RMS back to the payload bay to drop off EV-1 for the final time. The RMS was almost to the bay, just going over the left wing then the Sim decided that I was done. So now EV-1 is stuck inside of the left wing of my space shuttle. Is there any way I can get him out? I really don't want to restart the mission, but I will if I have to.

Huge problem here. I was deorbiting in STS-93 when my game crashed to desktop after loading OPS 201 Pro into the Rear Aft Keypad.

After that I checked the Windows 8 compatibility and ran as administrator which solved this crash issue, but when I launched the game again I had to enter serial number and unlock key once again. The game was erased to default state: no saves, no achievements.

Any ideas how to retrieve them? I did not erase anything, just changed the shortcut compatibility.

RMS switch? Which panel is it located in?

The RMS is moving up and down, but it is impossible to yaw it (both with flight controller yaw twist and with Insert/Delete keys), impossible to angle the elbow. I cannot grab the Hubble without yaw of the RMS and adjusting the angle of arm elbow.
