Ace of Space is my 2 player net game project . It is meant to be a trainer for space combat in "Entropia Universe" (an actual mmo).
Space and space combat is a fairly recent addition to the E'U' , and if you have ever played it you might know how incredibly expensive it can be to do anything in there, which gave rise to the challenge of making my own space sim and try to tune it to the feel of EU so i could become a "space ace" without the financial challenge it brings .
I have been hosting the files on my own site up till now , but it is hard to get decent feedback . I have made the bare bones of the game and im quite pleased how it has turned out so far , but my problem is that EU uses an odd set of controls which i have aproximated but its not quite right so i need help deciphering exactly how EU moves and turns ect.(but for now it is its own thing , a bit of fun and my first multyplayer project)
the files are attached as .rar ,extract anywhere. Files also avalable at ....
Please try my demo and let me know what you think, also if you play EU and can help me decipher the controls that would be cool please get in touch .

You can shoot asteroids to get materials and sell them to the big blue asteroid spacestation , if no other players detected the player 2 ship is NPC which gets tougher the more you kill it and weaker if it kills you (for now),have fun..
When you get killed your ship explodes, flinging your helpless body and your precious cargo out into space , will you succumb to the vaccume of space before your assailant can finnish you himself ? Or will he go for your cargo ?? Or both ???
