    Hallo, habe auch das Problem das X4 nicht mehr startet. Habe alles was in troubleshooting startup errors gibt kontrolliert. Meine AMD 3GB R9 200 / 7900 hat angeblich Vulkan und ich hatte es schon seit Release gespielt gehabt ohne Probleme. Jetzt wird es zwar "angeblich" gestartet, jedoch taucht es im Taskmanager nur unter Prozesse ganz unten auf mit 55k. Nicht jedoch in den Anwendungen. Was läuft da schief? Ich habe auch zwischenzeitlich auf SSD umgestellt jedoch ist da Standardmäßig der Rapidmode ausgeschaltet. Habe das nochmal mit dem Magician gechecked. 

    Mir fehlen die Ideen warum das nicht startet. ;( 

    Thx für Eure Hilfe Impi

      Kurzer Nachtrag noch dazu: Non-Steam exe. das gleiche Problem und ja die Vulkan ist auf der Graka mit neuesten Treiber 2.0.116 sowie API Version 1.1.125.  Ich benutze Win7 Ultimate. Hatte ich vergessen zu erwähnen. Einen Fehler oder Fehlermeldung oder sowas bekomme ich leider nicht angezeigt.  

      1. Hallo Impi,

        Bitte schau doch einmal auf der Troubleshooting startup errors Seite vorbei und schaue ob dort dein Fehler, unter den dort beschriebenen zu finden ist. Sollte dein Fehler dort nicht zu finden sein, sind dort auch die weiteren Schritte, die du ergreifen kannst beschrieben.

        LG MrMack

    sono un neofita del gioco X4 Foundations, mentre ho giocato tutti gli altri X. Con X4 ho molte difficoltà a gestire i Controller in gioco. I miei controller sono quelli classici: tastiera, mouse e Joystick Logiteck Force 3D Pro, ma probabilmente sono configurati molto male in quanto la mappa ruota vorticosamente in verticale e si ferma solo quando la riduco ai minimi termini, in volo il Joystick funziona relativamente con rotazioni difficilmente controllabili ed infine il  mouse gestisce male le direttrici di volo come nel caso degli attracchi.

    Ho bisogno di qualcuno che mi faccia avere i dati per una configurazione funzionante, altrimenti non posso godere di questo splendido gioco. Grazie

    Qualcuno è contattabile su Discord per risolvere il mio problema di configurazione dei parametri Controllers? grazie. Capt320#6289

    Is there another X4 wiki somewhere? This looks like a great game - and there was even a recent update... but I just cannot play this game. Why? ... One reason... there is no list compiled of all of the ships in the game, and their stats. I am not a "random bumbler" who randomly bumbles his way through a game... I hate those kinds of games. I bought this game, and played it for about two hours. I realized that I needed to plan for what my goals were, and what ship I wanted - like in "Elite: Dangerous" - very easy to do, because every ship and weapon in the game is all listed on their wiki. So I come here...  This game has been out since 2018, and there isn't even so much as a partial database of ships and weapons?!? Is there another wiki somewhere, or am I just unable to find the right pages, or is this game really that bad, that no one, even the devs, ever compiled a list?

    1. Details on ships IS available on this Wiki here: Ships (Game Stats > Ships, via the menus on the left)

      You could also try Roguey's X4 site if you can't find what you are looking for here

      Please be aware that in X4, ship stats can be effected a lot by the equipment you fit and so you may find tables of stats contradicting each other from different sources depending on whether the person that gathered the data used the base lowest-tier equipment or something higher

    Hello everyone, I have a question. I have been looking through the ships listed here, and there are a lot of them - I can't seem to decide what to get. I know what I want, just not sure which one is the one that fits the description - I want the most powerful ship - the one that cuts through others like a hot knife through butter. I want the ship that is capable of placing the most destructive firepower downrange, as fast as possible... I'm not looking for the fastest ship. or the toughest ship, but the one that is like a wolverine or a honey-badger - the one that is the most feared ship. I'm not interested in shield strength, or speed... just which ship can put the most firepower onto it's single target at a time - that ship - Does anyone know which ship that is?

    1. Some people favour the Odysseus as the capital ship of their fleet when focusing on pure stats and ignoring other factors (e.g. looks). I'm not sure which destroyer class has the most turrets with forward firing arcs, which might be what you are looking for. You are likely to receive more opinions if you post this question to either the Egosoft or Steam forums for X4.    or

    Ich kann nur Seiten auf Englisch bearbeiten. Bei Seiten auf Deutsch fehlt bei mir der "Bearbeiten"-Button.


    1. Hallo,

      die Originalseiten sind alle auf Englisch. Somit ist die Bearbeiten Funktion auch nur dort verfügbar. Möchtest du eine deutsche Seite bearbeiten, musst du auf "Übersetzen" klicken. Dann kommst du auch direkt in die Bearbeiten Übersicht, nur dass du nebenan das Original der englischen Seite dabei hast.

    Чем уничтожить станцию Акрополь правосудия?

    1. I dont speak Russian, but if I understand your question correctly then the answer is:
      The station is a crucial Part of the Split Plot. It is invincible until the point it has to get destroyed during the Plot itself.

      Я не говорю по-русски, но если я правильно понимаю ваш вопрос, то ответ такой:
      Станция является важной частью участка Сплит. Он непобедим до тех пор, пока не будет уничтожен во время самого сюжета.
      -Russian reply is a Google translate

    Hallo Zusammen,

    ich habe foldendes Problem.

    Das Spiel(PC) friert bei 87% des Ladebalken ein, jedoch nur beim Neustart eines Spieles. Die Turorials lassen sich starten.

    Ich habe bereits alle Treiber aktualisiert, leider ohne Erfolg.

    Seit dem letzten Update " Gezeiten und Habgier" kann ich das Spiel nicht mehr starten,was vorher noch möglich war.

    Habe auch schon das Spiel neu Instliert das gleiche Ergebnis. Bin etwas ratlos was ich noch versuchen kann.
