Hi there, DFM is pretty buggy ATM, after ~5 minutes everything starts to lag horribly. I'll try to test it more.

Ok, now there is no game breaking lag, so I've played 3 waves of Vanduul Swarm. IMHO, it's quite hard to control ship (using mouse and keyboard and heavily relying on decoupled mode). Aurora cannot quickly enough adjust to constantly changing flight vectors, so it's hard to aim something, and things are getting worse when you run out of missiles(it's not easy to get a missile lock, too). It took me 20 minutes to finish those 3 waves because I wasn't able to aim properly. Also you cannot see readings of your monitors due to bad camera position, and switching to head look is suicide in combat situation. Another bad thing is bad controls-I wasn't able to turn off G-Safe mode because it required combination of two keys to do that-and rather than acting as an on/off switch, it was acting as a toogle, switching between few modes. You cannot handle such complex things in battle. Same thing with countermeasures.

tl;dr-Game is ok, but not great. Good luck in controlling your ship, you gonna need it.

Update: Now I can handle my ship and blast something off the sky in less than 5 minutes! *applause*

I had to decrease my speed to uncomfortable 80 m/s (got used to Freelancer's 200 m/s PvP speed). Always having a feeling that I'm just sitting duck on that speed...however, Vanduul still can't get me most of the times. Maybe because they have to deal with their fighter's shifted gravity center? I wonder how they can even get anywhere near to actually fire something at me...

Decoupled mode benefits me so far...still, I have an uneasy feeling that you'll be able to rip my Aurora from engine to cockpit in a few seconds while I'll make my turn, especially at less than 80 m/s...

Game doesn't lag that heavily after I've went all the way to the low graphics settings. Still, everything looks quite nice.

About that autorepair and rearm stuff after boss wave-well, it's not present in the game, at least not yet, so your best option after receiving some critical damage is suicide...uhh, wait, let's rephrase it. Voluntary deintegration by collision with celestial body. That sounds better.

tl;dr-Now I suck less at flying and shooting! Less bugs! Moaning about 10+ year old game!

Got an invite to pre-alpha multiplayer. Crashes and disconnects, even my ship hates me and doesn't let me in. Got only ~5 minutes of pure gameplay, didn't managed to kill anyone.
