Seems like forever ago Elite Frontier happened, the original creator was developing it single handed then rumour was it was taking too long so it was released half finished, which probably explains why it was so bad. First you found a single hop trade route that was safe from pirates, slaves one way narcotics the other way, you just did a grind on that for a while until you made some big money, then combat was easy once you got a big ship, you locked the autopilot target as the attacking ship, then eventually your course would converge, you would smash into it, kill it and win the fight lol.

After all this time I thought it was long since over. I never realised Braben was responsible for the Raspberry Pi though :
