We plan to use a different forum system in the near future, to reallow a more easy user registration, as this one is heavyly attacked by robots.

I think we can then keep a link to the old forum so all articles are there but read only, and continue in the new forum system (hopefully better).

feel free to discuss and sugestions are welcome also.

I still am not able to have full operation of my poc game .

I have the 3Dsim working but each time i get "Stop engine - your ship is in at the berth - I push enter to stop the engine = > No reaction => ALT N ( new game) or ALT F4 ( quit the game) to stop the game .

The result is no status evaluation, but the answer " Why did you quit - tugboats xxxxxxxx USD "

The result is no Hall of fame and each time I want to buy a new ship I have to go to "Low cost ship's " with status 0 or status 2

I asked already several times for help but nobody answer me

I am ship's owner with 15 ship's and status 4 at the moment ; I feel really frustrated after all this years of playing

My only remark about our similator

Please keep real model of ships - we have f.e. Redina which is a monster of a ship - To unrealistic to keep your longship axe .

Is a great step forward that now the ports are really realistic

Perhaps now some more parameters of wind and tide to make it more realistic

How many intenral memory need my PC to run 3D sim III - I have 6 GB (3x2Gb) Do I need more to solve the problem ?

Please your answer because I really want now with the new PC play may game as planned .

hello mr. van oostakker,

i think the right key to stop the engine is either pos1 or end -one of the two.
I remember having had the same problem some time ago
but rdklein did a patch and since then the game worked fine.

the explanation for this were a too small area for the ship to berth,
so maybe rdklen can check again.

best regards from hamburg,

Christian Todt

To stop the engine you have to use the "arrow down" button and put the throttle in neutral.

The 'end' button puts every lever back in neutral, whatever position they may have had.

The 'home' button puts the rudder in neutral, the combination 'ctrl', 'shift' with 'home' puts the bow & stern engines in neutral (shift/home for 'stern', ctrl/home for 'bow').

In Flemish/In't Vlaams: om de motor af te zetten gebruik je normaal de pijltjestoets "neer" todat de gashendel in 'neutraal' staat. wanneer je niet zeker bent, hou de schoorsteen van het schip in de gaten: daar komt namelijk geen smoor meer uit wanneer de motor af staat...

De 'end' toets zet alle hendels automatish naar neutraal, in welke positie ze ook mogen gestaan hebben...

De 'Home' toets zet het roer in neutraal, de combinatie 'ctrl', 'shift' en 'home' zet boeg- en achterschroef in neutraal. (shift/home voor achteraan, ctrl/home voor de boeg). Wink
The exception doesn't confirm the rule.
The exception only confirms that the rule is redundant.

Hallo zusammen,

Die Beiträge sind ja teilweise schon einige Jahre alt, nur
wie siehet es da mal aus das man auch mal ohne nur zu Verlinken Grafiken (Bilder) gleich direkt mit in den Beitrag mit einbinden kann?

Denn ich finde es (inzwischen) sehr unpraktisch das man dann auf den Grafiklink klicken muß um die Grafik angezeigt zu bekommen Crying or Very sad

Also ich finde da sollte mal ein Update gemacht werden, damit auch dieses dann möglich ist! Es gibt Tonneweise Foren ++ wo das möglich ist!

Denn hier geht ja nur Text + Links, mehr ist nicht möglich Crying or Very sad

Bitte Bitte Bitte mal Updaten Wink und den Benutzerkomfort etwas steigern Wink

Könnte doch sicher nicht schaden, oder ???

Alles Gute und bleibt gesund!

Ob sich eine Modernisierung des Forums für 2-3 Posts pro Jahr wohl lohnt?

Ich würde mich viel mehr über eine moderniserte Windows-Version des POC XXL freuen. Auf einem modernen 4K-Monitor ist das knapp 800x600 große Fenster kaum noch wiederzufinden.
