Ship automatically accelrates

Postby RabeKneo » Fri Apr 14, 2017 4:09 pm

Hey there,

I've started playing Ascent 7 months ago but i've only played a few hours.
My next login was today and following problem occurred:
My ship automatically accelrated and i can slow down it to about 300 m/s but i cant stop it.
The thrusters are working on 100%.
The only way how i can stop the ship is to shutting down the reactor.

What should i do because as long as i'm flying forward i cant mine and i'm at the beginning? :(

Sorry if something is spelled/described wrong, I am from Germany and my english is not the best :|

The space bar turns thrusters on and off. Holding down shift and space locks thrusters on. It may be your keyboard mapping that is causing an issue. I assume you have changed it for German language.

Left Alt will toggle the grav anchor on and off if you have turned it to Manual in the options.

I have known a few who had joysticks plugged in or mapped and it was giving key commands and confusing game play. Make sure you have all controllers unplugged and restart the game. See if that helps. There have been a few who had drivers still running from controllers that were causing the issues too. You can use a controller to play the game, but the key bindings will cause issues if they are wrong.

Hope that helps and welcome to the game. i saw your hornet docked at Plato today. Feel free to call out for help in global chat while in the game. Any on will be happy to try to help. Do not worry about your English. We understand. English is my first language and I do a terrible job of speaking and spelling it.
