What do you think about DXX-Rebirth
Hey DiamondShredder and welcome to DXX-Rebirth,

Thanks you for your Review of the port. It's always very motivating to read how people found their way to it, and why they play it - even better if they love it. Smile

By the way the DOSBox way is actually a pretty good solution. You can pretty much adjust the game to your personal needs here. The FPS rates are a mjor factor as you noticed. When the game runs faster actually that was a saftety measure of PARALLAX. When the game runs faster than 150FPS, the game is told to still calculate on the base of 150FPS - otherwise a higher value would one time result in division by 0. However this of course creates problem as the game's calculations "think" everything just runs at 150FPS....
A real FPS-limiter would have solved that and DXX-Rebirth has one now (that one CAN go to 1000 FPS in debug build - after that it get's inaccurate becuse of the data types used for the calculations... technical gibberish).
However on DOSBox you can also pay attention to more bugs you can solve by FPS-adjustments:
- Homing missiles turn better in high FPS
- Screen shaking (Fusion) is more intense at high FPS
- Some collision calculations behave slightly different at high FPS

Y'know.. stuff like that. DXX of course fixes that (I know I sound like a self-lovin douche now but I am proud I could fix this ^^). I hope after all these years we found all these FPS-base quirks now. Smile
And so I hope you can enjoy Descent as much. Smile

EDIT:
About this "moving slightly to left/right" - I know this bug. I can remember it but honestly I cannot tell you how this was fixed. I actually do not remember anymore if I fixed this before I switched to a revision control system (which would now help me to see HOW this was fixed) OR if this was fixed in the original D1X/D2X projects. I think the latter one is the case here - so no credit for me ^^.
The greatest pleasure in life is to do what people say you cannot do.
Uhm... Honey, there's a head in the toilet!
