Englishmen have awesome accents, my best friend is Canadian, Germans make awesome cars, Americans have good junk food.

Except New York.

New York is made out of junk food. :thumb:

So I like everyone! :jump:

Ah, I see. I didn't know if you had to have the other files included in Beta 1 or not.

The final few sentences blew me away. I nearly had to grab my dictionary. :wink:

Sweet! I've never played true multiplayer (only when I was 6 years old, or with my younger brother). Other than a few Descent 3 games, I don't know how other people play, so I'll probably suck. Keep in mind that the current version (1.13.127) has broken multiplayer. Currently there is a 1.14 beta ou...

I was thinking along the lines of bitmaps replacing the targa format. My bad, I misunderstood :P

lol. But that's the whole point :P it was funny when you said it was a hack. Also, a stonger border would definitely help, but if it's a different color that would help much more. So much more. And thank you! EDIT: Whoa wait, did I hear bitmap rendering? Are we going to be using an uncompressed imag...

That offsetting idea isn't that bad, if it's not by a lot. It would be less ugly than increasing the size of the image, wouldn't you think? Though I'm sure you can find out what works best.

I honestly can't tell you that, as I will straight up say I have no idea. I do know, as someone previously stated, that you can turn off features like file sharing, which nearly reduces the chance of "assault" to 0. Though let's say we make a network called "D2X-XL" with the pass...

That would work too, thought that might be more difficult for you to implement (rapid image resizing compared to border color change). If it were something like a blue frame for the selected weapon, that would be perfect.

Aaah, you know that would help a ton! (the framecap). I have two monitors (not sure if I mentioned that) so I just run each window on a seperate monitor. I assigned each one to a CPU beacuse for some reason, the host takes up much more than the one that's joining, and the host would run perfectly sm...

Sweet! If you need any help testing it out (that's basically all I can do), I'd be glad to help out. I have lots of brothers, lots of systems, and lots of time that I can spend on it, which is why my name pops up everywhere on the D2X-XL bug reports :P

Karx, and the D2X coders have been working hard, and indeed have been doing an excellent job. I was merely 6 when Descent 2 was popular, and I did not comprehend it's awesomeness until later on; after it was obsolete. You seem pretty excited about it's online features. Wanna try it out sometime? I'm...
