Egosoft continue to polish up their ridiculously massive, incredibly ambitious and rather good looking space sim with the release of X4: Split Vendetta and the massive 3.0 free update.

For everyone in the free update there's new storyline, new mission types, French voice-over, new standalone tutorials, new shops, a configurable alert system, new weapons, improved graphics and a huge amount more. Meanwhile X4: Split Vendetta, the paid DLC, adds in a massive expansion to the universe amongst other things like the two new Split family clans.

Check out their impressive release trailer below:

This is, without a doubt, the biggest update to the game yet and shows how completely committed Egosoft are to creating the best possible space game they can. Their effort is showing too, as X4: Foundations really has come a long way. I've spoken to quite a few people who are regular players of X4, since I only dabble in it here and there myself and they've all said along the same lines that it's a huge improvement.

It is an incredibly impressive game, even with the rough edges here and there. It often looks completely gorgeous too, and the action when you get into a fight is extremely intense during some of the bigger battles. Everything outside of that too with all the exploration, trading and more. It's just massive.

You can grab X4: Foundations and the DLC from Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

pete910Well it does have profiles for a few including the warthog, You can set customise buttons fine however, Trying to change axis like rudder ect does not work at all.

No idea as to why.
What axes are you trying to change? Can you describe them in detail? I wil try to reproduce here.

Notice that if you have a HOTAS kit that has more than one device plugged to the computer, you must inform them in the input device configuration. I do that because I use my G29 pedals along with the X52.

Any of the analogue axis that wont bind.

If you go into the settings and delete say throttle then try to rebind it to a different axis it fails.

It works fine as the profile is set as.

Worked fine here. Now, again, did your register all your HOTAS devices in the game? You have to get to settings, "Manage Controllers/Joysticks", then configure the devices you will be using. Like that:

If you don't register your devices there, they won't be detected when assigning the controls. Might be that what's happening.

Yes, That's the first thing I did. I have the GOG version not steam too . Not that should make a difference mind.

I don't have my Steam controler plugged in either.
I don't know what else to say or suggest. I'm stumped. Here it works, it worked when I had the Warthog, the only problem I had was in a beta where the input from the HOTAS would incessantly make the arming screen be flickering in-game, but that was resolved. I wish I could help you. Have you reported your problem in the egosoft forums?

Well an update, Not sure what I've done but apparently it works now

Thought I'd give it another go after messing in Star citizen last night. Odd that it now works.
