Topic: New Profile glitch workaround?
Replies: 3
Views: 1873

I'm glad I'm on the same page with someone :D I did notice that, actually. The real reason I did it was because no matter how many times I start D2X-XL (which is a lot) it always chooses the Default profile, even if I was using my normal one before. So I'd get really far through the missions, and re...

New Profile glitch workaround?

I really was not sure where to put this, but I thought I'd share my theory anyway. I've noticed in previous bug reports and such that people had problems that were specific to new profiles. I did some testing, and it was true of course, but I found a way to fix that, or at least work around it. I cr...

I guess now that there's a feature freeze, the only thing left to do is to wipe out all the bugs and increase it's functionality to the maximum.

Once that happens, is that goodbye? :cry:

I'm glad I could help. At least it was good exercise/experience to work around this problem. The door problem is not something I could fix, as it is a bug in the program, but thankfully Karx11erx is all over it. I believe I can speak for the both of us (me and Vant) when I say we are really looking ...

Thread revival ftw? Even though I just joined this community today, I'm very interested in becoming involved. I've been playing Descent 2 since it's release, and I was around 6 years old (16 now). Over time I was saddened it was set free from Interplay, and I gave up on it. I had no clue that the so...

My sincerest apologies. I was kinda rushed 'cause of a LAN party I was going to play this in, but now that I realize it's not quite running smoothly, I'll slow down a bit and learn some myself. I'll read more thoroughly!

Ah, that makes a ton of sense now =) would I be asking too much when I ask if it will work in an upcoming release?

Bullets freeze mid-air in multiplayer + other problem

So, I start up a local IPX server just to play by myself, and once I get into the game I, of course, start flying around shooting randomly, and I noticed that randomly my lasers/missles would just freeze in place in mid air, and they stay there until I quit the game (if I shoot enough, it becomes a ...

Eeh, I'm sorry, what's the arrow supposed to point out? If I'm being annoying I can stop, but I have found the way to fix half of his problem! There are 4 sound files per sound folder, their names are cldoor02, ddoorcl2, ddoorcl8, and vdoorcl5. Move them into completely different folders (make sure ...

So I got all the hires textures and installed them. I got the same problem as you, and I fixed it by lowering the texture quality in the render settings down to Medium instead of Highest. The installation guide recommends lowering it to High, but I had to go down to medium. I suppose the less textur...

I just now downloaded all the hires stuff, so I havn't had memory problems yet, though I searched through every thread on this forum and I did run into some advice or this. I read that if you add in -use_swapfile into d2x.cfg, then it will greatly increase the performance when running out of memory ...

Also, Vant, the reason the sounds don't play aside from engine noises and such is because, by default, DLX-XL is installed with -hires_sound 1/2 in the dlx.cfg file. You must change it to 0 to allow non-hires sounds to play, and I would suggest shutting of hires sounds in-game, because the default o...

Hmm, I didn't catch the part about Descent.cfg being messed up. I bet I forgot to replace it once I installed Descent 2 again (I began by copying my DLX-XL copy from one computer to the next). Thank you all for the advice! I'm looking forward to 1.14!
