Tutorial: Setting up custom controls

Version 1.12.28 of DLE (http://www.descent2.de/files/dle-1.12.28.7z) introduces configurable camera movement controls. Since these cannot currently be configured through the UI (yet; I'll look at it but it's a lot of UI work) I figured I should write a how-to so you can actually make use of this fea...

Re: Overlad, 6DOF game made by original Descent creators

Co-op would have been awesome - but hey, at least this is a good start. It has the feeling of "next-gen" D2X-XL in a way.

Re: Is Sirius on hiatus for the fixes and updates of DLE?

Okay, finally completed some adjustments for the custom texture manager's handling of high-resolution textures... should be less crashy, less buggy, more usable next DLE release.

Now for all these bugs. Ctrl + Home is a fun one.

Re: Custom weapons mod?

Yeah I'll be honest, I don't know if trying to cold-start level 25 on a no-death run is plausible without a lot of pain - I have to assume it is possible due to the way Descent works but you're going to be low on ammo and facing a boss that, if you have to fight him alone with energy weapons only......

Re: Is Sirius on hiatus for the fixes and updates of DLE?

I have definitely been pretty slow to deal with anything in the last several months. I've been meaning to continue work on some of the most-requested things, but every time I look at where the code has to go for customizable controls to work, I think "urgh... maybe tomorrow". I do still se...

OK. I might have incompatible times though - I don't know if I've spotted you on there.

Oh... yeah, if you aren't past that yet, it should show up on the automap.

Re: Custom weapons mod?

Ooh... yeah. If that's the level I'm thinking of it was one of the fairer ones, though, in that lines of sight were usually pretty long and you have a chance to kill many robots from range (although that's typically wasteful of energy, until you have a recharge station cleared), or at least dodge wh...

Re: Pumo Mines Thread

Massive overkill backups.

I do it too, though. It gets pretty hard to lose stuff when you have five different ways to recover it.

I don't believe the .plr would be changed, for compatibility with DOS.

Re: D2X-XL or DXX-Rebirth - which is better?

You can kind of do that by installing Rebirth in a subdirectory and fiddling with the configuration file to point it up to the parent directory for pilot and data files. Not so easy to do with the D1 version for reasons I never figured out, but it worked with D2. I don't generally tell other people ...

Re: Quick setup for local LAN party

Even on a local area network, each machine has a distinct IP address - the difference is they're internal IP addresses that aren't visible to the world outside the LAN. You can usually tell what this is by entering "ipconfig" at the command prompt (in Windows; there are most likely equival...

Hmm... that reads like an accidentally swapped response to a parallel post on another forum where someone responded "lol who cares?" instead of what you said.

Re: Custom weapons mod?

If I'd known we were Going Large, I would probably have spent more time on a couple levels here or there... but then again, nobody ever complained that levels 7/13/19 were too short, so probably no big deal. Oh... yeah, and I wouldn't have been able to do the reactor room in 19 without 400 cubes to ...
