Name: RES2 [Show more] Type: Subroutine Category: Start and end Summary: Reset a number of flight variables and workspaces
Context: See this subroutine in context in the source code Variations: See code variations for this subroutine in the different versions References: This subroutine is called as follows: * DEATH calls RES2 * DEATH2 calls RES2 * ESCAPE calls RES2 * MJP calls RES2 * TT110 calls RES2 * TT18 calls RES2

This is called after we launch from a space station, arrive in a new system after hyperspace, launch an escape pod, or die a cold, lonely death in the depths of space.
Returns: Y Y is set to &FF
