I, too, would love a way to turn off the annoying hints. I'm reminded of Eve's little helpful hints every time I'm in Sol. Well, at least in Eve, you can turn them off.

So, yes, please give us an option to turn off the hints.

I'd pay MONEY to turn off this damn box.

It's just past annoying, and risen to the point of stabbity-annoying.

I hate the pop-up tip also. I want a way to disable them.

BTW if you leave your "current" weapon slot empty, like I do for my Kung Fu Captain, you will beam down with no drawn weapons.

I found the Tip Pop-up (or Badgy) a real nuisance as well. Here's a helpful workaround that I use since Dev has been unable to fix this issue:

Prerequisite(s):
1) Duct Tape
2) A 4x4 inch piece of cardboard

Workaround:
1) Using the Duct Tape apply the 4x4 inch piece of cardboard to the lower right corner of your computer screen

This will effectively "disable" the Tip Pop-up

Hope this helps!

Additionally, you can use this workaround to customize your IU. I have a pic of The Fonz giving the thumbs up with the quote "Ayyyyyy"

yeah lets disable this. granted the game is only two weeks old, but we dont need new tool tips after the first few hours, im pretty sure everyone who plays this game played for a few hours the first day.

This would be a good thing. My Admiral knows how to play the game and where vendors are at Sol station. By virtue of that, my alts also know where things are, and if they don't, they'll find them. :p

Q, where are you?! Snap the fingers and make some fixes. Or poke the people who do the coding and see if it's a relatively easy fix to make. hehe

*hops aboard as well*

I've been wondering for a while now how one can deactivate those popups. They are helpful the first few times you are at Earth Spacedock, but after that they just get more and more annoying.

"disable automatic help window popup" - or something like that.


.... and no, "kill badgy" as an option would confuse everyone who has not read this thread
