I remember playing Elite on a Commodore 64 as a kid. This brings it right back...

Thank you for posting info about elite and that they have a version that will play on linux. I too started using computers back in the day of the commodore 64 and I use to have every game for it.

Here is a link so you can see some of the other games from that time.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I didn't play all of those but I recognized quite a few.

Anyhow the winblows version comes with 3 PDF files. I'm not sure why they aren't included in the linux version, but I've attached a ZIP of them to this post.

One thing they don't tell you is that after version 1.76.1 (currently the stable release) they took out the Energy Bomb! So if you depend on it like I do, get the stable version and not the newest release.
