Re: What weapons are overpowered in D2, in your opinion?

The weapon I would choose isn't on the list... The homing flash missile the level 16 boss uses. Add that to the fact that he shrugs off energy weapons, and he becomes the most overpowered thing in the game. I think he cheats. But, since this is about player weapons in single-player, I would have to ...

Re: Trying to find a map I saw around here just a few days a

I would prefer a Saturday. For a game of this nature, I'd be willing to sacrifice some sleep, on either end. I frequently get up early, and occasionally stay up late, so it's not big deal to do it on one more day. I'm in the central US [UTC -6]. At least until day-light savings(which I think is an a...

The giant multiplayer game. We're supposed to find 16 players and try a capture the flag game.

Re: Now how cool is this!

I'm not the biggest fan of OK Go. A few of their songs are pretty good. However, I am always amazed by their music videos. Very creative, with a lot of effort put in. Entertaining to watch, even if you don't love the song. This one is amazing.

You should. Maybe we could try co-op on it some time.

Re: Finished Anthology - Finally

I guess there was an error loading some of the bots then. I think one of the homing bots was a D3 one the first time I saw it, then was a D2 bot the second time. As for size, I can understand why you wouldn't want to revisit it. It sounds like it took you a significant amount of time. It's an excell...

Finished Anthology - Finally

It sure took a long time. That place is huge! Very well done, Sirius. I'm going to post a few thoughts I had about the level(s?). D1: Overall, I think this was my favorite section. It felt like a D1 level, and I have always preferred D1 single player over the others. The size of the map felt overwhe...

Re: What do you recommend

My computer is too weak to worry about anything over basic lighting, so I don't have light maps enabled. I bet it would take forever and a day for my computer to do it. I think Anthology comes with light maps pre-loaded. I could be wrong on this though. I don't know what would be best to lower. I do...

Re: What do you recommend

Based on your system, I would say that your video card is just struggling a bit. Your CPU should be more than adequate. You could decrease some of the settings and see what works. Or you could try decreasing your resolution. And Hawkins is right... 50 FPS is excellent, and very playable. I've seen a...

Ranger's mumble server? They have a guest lobby. What do you think Sirius, Hawkins?

Re: Trying to find a map I saw around here just a few days a

This sounds like fun. Depends on the time (like everyone else said), but I'd definitely want to participate. I've never played a descent game with that many people. Not even in D3. I never cared much for it. Perhaps I'll announce this on the Ranger's forum too. I know there are a few CTF fans among ...

Re: Want to play Descent 1,2 HELP!!!

I see that it's been a little while. Did you get your joystick working? I have the same joystick, and got it set up. I'll help if I can.

Re: Basic Lighting problem.

Thanks for the quick fix. Also, -fullscreen 0 worked. Strange that it wouldn't work if I do ;-fullscreen. Thanks for your help.

Basic Lighting problem.

I loaded up Anthology today, hoping to play this level. Because Standard lighting brings my (weak) computer to a crawl during a firefight, I use Basic lighting, with all effects turned off (resolution doesn't seem to effect it much, so I think it must be CPU limited). However, when using basic light...
