    Good Morning Troops,
    I played "Privateer" for many years and always enjoyed myself, I was most
    surprised and overjoyed to trip over this remake of a great Game!. ThankYou!

    Now, my only problem for the moment is how do I quit the Game to go to bed??.
    I`ve tried "Alt X", no go, I tried "Q", no go, I`ve looked everywhere I can think
    of? to no avail, Could one of you chaps tell me where to find the "Quit Button"
    please!.
    Thanks again for a great Game return!

    Privateer13.

    Welcome to the zone, Privateer13! Enjoy your stay, there's much to be discovered :)

    As for your question:
    For me (currently on Ubuntu 10.10), "ALT X" works when you are in space, and should bring up the "Press Q to quit" screen.

    Quit

    Hello again,
    That I understand, but I cannot seem to be able to quit when on a Base or Mine,
    I have to turn the computor off then back on to succeed!.
    This should not be, If I could get to the Front Page I would have the chose of
    "New, Load, Credits, "Quit". but I cannot even get there, I`m confused!

    Regards,
    Privateer.

    He probably means the PAD which you access on a base by pressing P IIRC.

    PAD was from Privateer 2, Privateer has the Quine 4000. The original Privateer uses 'C' to bring up the Quine... can't recall how it works in Gemini Gold.

    I thought Alt-X also works for exiting while on a base... maybe things are slightly different in Gemini Gold? You shouldn't have to restart your PC just to quit the game, though.

    I haven't found a way to quit while docked, but haven't been looking too hard either. I usually dock, save via the Quine, launch & quit.

    When in space, hit Esc, then Q.
