Hey everyone! Just got the sim a few days ago. I'm currently in STS-8, and completed my first grapple to the payload on my first try!

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to complete STS-1, at Comm 42 when I need to make an attitude adjustment of R P Y=0, it doesn't acknowledge it and skips to COMM 1105 which blocks me from going forward. Maybe I'll load it again from the start and give it another try.

I just had a heck of a time ungrappling from the payload. I'm on a Mac without a numeric keyboard (but with a joystick) and it wouldn't acknowledge the num5 key that's mapped to the joystick. I had to get the WinXP on-screen keyboard up, and turn the numlock on for it to recognize the mapped command!

The wonders of a laptop... (and Apple).

This qualifies as a great hack in space, my friend! Mission must be accomplished even if hardware fails. That's a true explorer's spirit.  You're on your way to becoming a seasoned virtual Astronaut!

Where would be the proper place to get help/support for my STS-1 problem? That's something I'd like to get help with and figured out.

You'd ask this question in the "Help, Hints & Tips" board above  Wink

Noted, thanks!

I finished STS-8, and started STS-1 over, and it worked fine this time. That's 2 down! I'm really enjoying this.

Great. Then make sure you report this on the Astronauts Achievements thread above Smiley
