What do you think about DXX-Rebirth
#5
I think it's a great effort to keep Descent alive.  Smile I used to play Descent with D1x 1.43 in Windows 98, because it was the best port for it. It gave me the best music and the best game feeling. Unfortunately, it had some serious bugs. For example, I needed to use Microsoft Game Controller software in order to use all 9 buttons of my Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick. But this software did not work in Windows XP, so I was depending on Windows 98. Furthermore, the music stopped playing in some levels after a while. In order to reanimate it, you had to reload your saved game level. But this, however, gave the music a special note and was quite funny. :-D

I'm currently playing Descent for the first time in Windows XP with D1x-Rebirth. I'm testing my new soundfont with it. So far everything seems to be all right. I prefer D1x-Rebirth over D2x-XL for the following reasons:
  • D2X-XL uses the artificial intelligence of Descent 2 for the robots. I don't like this, because it destroys the original game feeling of Descent 1
  • D2X-XL has a much longer loading time, especially if you use the additional textures
  • D2X-XL hasn't got the cool intro music of Descent 1[/list:u]

    So, keep up the good work. And what about a version 1.0 for D1x-Rebirth? 0.x looks still very beta (although it is not) and prevents many potential players to use it.
