Re: The Sphere [1.6]

Sphere 1.6 is finished! Anyone want to beta test? Link is in the OP That's a temporary link, next step is get a more permanent one [edit] There's always something isn't there? Equipment generators in level 4 still don't want to work properly. This only affects level 4. No problems in other levels. [...

32 bit exe no longer supported in new version of windows? (error 0xc000007b)

I reinstalled windows after the holidays, updating to Windows 10 Pro and shedding a lot of legacy stuff. D2X-XL is safely on a separate drive (B:) while windows is on C: so it was untouched by formatting. Well D2X-XL started doing this when trying to open it https://i.ibb.co/165b84b/dx2-error.png d2...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

Thanks Sirius, I'll check that site out Sorry for continued delays. I have plans on how to fix my two aforementioned problems. I believe I can solve my transparency problem by making a new texture and I can solve my boss robot problem by reverting back to older versions before I messed with any boss...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

I finished applying all the changes and fixes I intended. Overall the game is much, much fairer Right now I'm just testing testing testing. There's some issues I need help with - transparent glass loses transparency if there is another texture overlaid over it. This worked in the past. Doesn't now? ...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

An i7 is definitely more powerful than the i5 I currently use. How long does it take you to pre-calc lightmaps usually, Pumo? Just asking in case its just me Update news: level 2 is a little friendlier. Significantly tweaked robot placement and/or added more cloaks and invuls where deadly robots are...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

I've fixed a lot of things already. Level 1 is less of a pain. In level 1 It's safer to skirt around the red key area from the start. I no longer feel inhibited from going near that place without the plasma cannon, which is the way I wanted it to be from the beginning The guided missile puzzle can n...

Re: I want to learn how to use DLE-XP

Just putting this here for future reference: Instructions on the tunnel generator The start side is the "current" side, while the "other" sides denotes the end side. To have multiple start sides, just tag all sides you wish to include. The only limitation is that they have all to...

Re: I want to learn how to use DLE-XP

Here we are again years later. So last month I declared I'd revisit my old maps and do a lot of fixing up. This is taking a while because it's going to be the last update I'll make to these missions and I'm being very careful about quality control here ....that and it's taking me a stupid long time ...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

Hi Irontower. Ooof, you had to cheat to get through it? :oops: Yea, that's an issue I'm fixing. The new version shuffles the robots of level 1 a bit and it's a bit more balanced now with the hardware you get so the nastier robots don't show up until later. Hopefully no cheating will be necessary Do ...

Re: If I buy Descent from Steam, D2X-XL will still work fine with that, right?

Not that I can see. D2X.hog and D2X.mn2 are both in the missions folder where they belong. Not duplicated in the data folder or anything. Selecting the extra Vertigo just opens up Vertigo normally. Guess it's not a big deal. There's other issues I'd like to report, like cockpit camera displays dislo...

Thanks. I plan to have it done shortly. I just have to give myself a crash course on DLE-XP. I've pretty much forgotten how it works :oops:

Re: The Sphere [NOT SO FINAL AFTER ALL LOL]

Welp, I don't know who else is out there on these forums these days but I thought I would drop a line anyway. So I played through The Sphere, and noted a lot of issues with it. I wrote down an entire document of gameplay problems as well as noting a few texture/trigger/data bugs. No gamebreaking bug...

Re: Pumo Mines Thread

Every screenshot looks great, and I think it's awesome that you're still motivated to get Pumo mines fully polished even if D2X-XL isn't really being developed anymore. It's been a project years in the making, I say see it to the end. The important thing is living the dream. I had a dream of my own ...

Re: The Sphere [FINAL 1.5]

Wow almost a decade since I last posted here! I can't believe this mission still works! I just bought a brand new copy of Descent (my original disk was lost a decade ago), installed the latest version of D2X-XL and downloaded my own mission from this website. Played through level 1 Hindsight is trul...

Re: If I buy Descent from Steam, D2X-XL will still work fine with that, right?

So far so good. I figured it wise not to mess with the Steam installation which already had the game setup to use Dosbox So I extracted D2X-XL to its own directory, and followed the readme to create the required folders. I copied all the data from the steam installation over to the D2X-XL installati...
