When you start, go to your messages, the game will give you ten stocked fuel. Be sure to check your challenges, because (at least at this point) the game is throwing out credits and stocked fuel for some pretty easy challenges.
You will want to also go into the options and switch the flight controls to expert/advanced (whatever they call it) and also switch the thrust/brakes and yaw controls if you want to play it like you played the PS2 games.
I wanna take a poll and see how many people would be interested in Dragon's Crown this Friday or the next Friday. Or even some other odd day of the week if that works for everyone. Let me know your availability.
I'm thinking we could all start with new characters, since most of us are probably rusty, anyways.
Yeah, if I remember correctly you have to be friends with someone to join on them. Don't go through the gate unless you want to end up with a bunch of randoms. And enable international play in the options, or the cool people can't join.
