    How do you save you game and how do you load your new game?
Say something about Elite! Did you play it? Do you feel nostalgic about the good old days? Did you like it or hate it? Do you have trouble running this game? Don't be afraid to ask for help (please, read the guide first). And don't forget to be polite.
