i dont know how to do that sorry :frowning:
if i find out how to do video of in game and screen capture of the other stuff i did within my steam app would that be sufficient

ive watched that video, what i am encountering is the red targetting reticule on the console isnt moving from the top left corner of the targetting computer and also the fire button wont work
but thanks for your response :slight_smile:

Which keyboard button do you use to activate the fire button?

im using xbox one controller for windows on win 10 pro and action is configured to the x button

Alright. I am playing with keyboard and mouse so I can’t tell you something about xbox one controller. Maybe it has some sort of support troubles. Try to use the left mouse button to interact with targeting computer.

You’ll want to use the fire button to use the display, not x.

Using xbox controller. :scream:
Problem solved.
At least now I know what to ask when people mention this issue in the steam forums. :nerd_face:

thanks everyone for giving help nice to find a great community :smiley:

incidently i was using the right trigger to target on the firing computer and x on the fire button

Yeah… you need to use the ‘use’ button to position where you want the rockets to fire, and the ‘use’ button to click on the firing console.
