My mistake, I was thinking of models, not textures. How come the power-ups are textures, not 3D models like the weapons and other items in the levels like the keys?

Anyone have the 16 frames version of this? Or any other hi-res power-ups? Thanks.

.70 is the latest i've tested. but i think i've been w/o hi-res models in-game for a while.


update: I updated the ticket now that I've seen what's happening: Some of the hi-res 3D models are fine. Others aren't there, and instead low-res 3D are, or even some look possibly 2D.

I have to disagree. Mouse control in Descent 1 and 2 was a mess. The higher the framerate, the less responsive the mouse was. This was only fixed in D2X-XL (and later in DXX-Rebirth). There is no mouselook at all in D1+D2 in the way it is referenced in regard with Descent (instantaneous turning of ...

yeah, very much agree. especially the color palette and the level design! also they ruined mouse-look/aim control somehow. either you can turn and aim smoothly but only very very slowly, or you can turn fast but cannot aim smoothly and carefully. very strange how they were unable to fix that given t...

Anyone else experiencing lower performance since around .49?

I've noticed when my ship is stationary it's fine, but as soon as I start moving it's like there's something sapping some of my CPU and causing my frames-per-second to dip in about half. Only started when I installed .50, I believe it was. This was over .48. (I missed .49). Just wondering if anyone ...

Im certain the only thing you need to worry about is the CPU socket. As long as the motherboard uses the LGA 775 socket it can fit any C2D processor. Not always true. Some would require a BIOS update (something some people wouldn't want to be bothered with) and some are simply not compatible with t...

1.13.31 seems stable again. Thanks for that; it was certainly unexpected for you to do anything while on vacation. Please see also our email conversation.

1.13.27-1.13.30 lock-up bug - need help testing

Posted here: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2000277&group_id=155890&atid=797586 This is unresolved. 1.13.25 works perfectly fine. Something changed since then must be the cause. I have no access to 1.13.26, but I have 1.13.27-1.13.30 and none of them is stable. ...

I've been getting near-immediate lockups since 1.12.105, so you're not alone there. Things seemed fine in 1.12.102 and I think 1.12.104 as well. If you can get a copy of 1.12.102, try that and see if it works for you. If so, you're probably just running into the same bug I am (and I'm on 32bit XP Pr...
