Re: wanted - lan gaming guide for dummies (me)

edit: thanks, it works. i'm leaving this original reply for your amusement! I actually tried that configuration, and again just now. the server shows choose players menu, and the client "net game" are all blank. the firewall is down on both machines, and ping is successful. If i can't LAN ...

wanted - lan gaming guide for dummies (me)

Was trying to get a local lan game going between 2 win7 boxes. I'm obviously doing something wrong. To serve a game, i select udp/ip , type in this server (win7) ip address, and pick a random number for a port lik 15000. To join the game, i use the ip from the above box, but now i have 2 port entrie...

Missing Vertigo robots and exit sequence

D1 and D2 work great with the hi-res models. I'm playing a bit of vertigo now, and 2 things that are missing are the rotating robot images between levels, and the exit movie sequence. They are all working fine in 1 and 2. maybe a small bug..sometimes the animated doors and fans such get their frames...

Re: Development Blah: Comments

Re: What makes a great descent level?

I remember in descent 1 (maybe 2 w afterburner), i was exiting a large room into a tunnel, when i tripped a hidden switch for well camouflaged on-ramp kind of door - which was hard to notice - about 10 steps behind me. I only heard the door open, and thought no big deal, hidden door and goodies. But...

req D1 sound effects help

Man i'm loving this. But i'm having issues with sound effects in D1. I'll try and describe the best i can. When i first enter a level, the sounds are all working, but high pitched... like maybe a higher incorrect bitrate? The self destruct lady sounds like a chipmunks cartoon. After entering the nex...

Re: Development Blah: Comments

I found that dead end tunnel thanks to that real groovy map. I hit a few switches eslewhere in the maze, and when i finally reached that tunnel, the wall was open. Now i'm not sure what that switch does at the end of that tunnel! i love a mystery! I'm back checking out sound issues on D1. I recall d...

Re: Development Blah: Comments

This is so much fun. I just had a thought. I wondeer if in D2, on the last level there is a switch that was broken. you had to guide a missle through the mesh, and then down a long curved tunnel to hit the switch...I imagine that was supposed to open the wall, but that didn't work in the original D2...
