Re: Why is the mac version not as up to date as the PC versi

Diedel doesn't have the resources available to compile a Mac version (it requires a Mac!) The only people who can do it aren't available all the time to keep it up to date with every new version, so they come by every so often to update it.

Re: Development Blah: Comments

That is true, which is why I wouldn't call it a bug or anything. Just an interesting behavioral note ;)

Re: Development Blah: Comments

Blarget pointed out that the reactor countdown timer after you destroy it is not effected by the speed changes, so at 200% speed, you have twice the time to escape ;)

Re: Development Blah: Comments

Yeah, everything. Bullets, missiles, ships... All of it =P It would be a cool feature to play around with, and might be fun to use, but I believe I'll find myself playing with normal speed still. I like the feel of classic Descent, and if the speed were changed I would just find it as a fun gimmick,...

Re: Development Blah: Comments

I thought the size for Azure Catacombs was reasonable. Isn't Tombz of Destruction even bigger? Granted, Azure Catacombs is designed for around 8 people at least, so without that many it might feel very big, but I think if we ever get more than 8 people on that map, you won't think the map is too big...

Re: Galactic Event IV (D2X-XL multiplayer event)

Starts in 3 hours. I'm in the chat room trying to get the debug version so I can pin down this crash before the event.

Re: New ships?

That sounds awesome! If I go into Gameplay Options and chose anything other than "Standard Ship", back out of the menu, and go back in... the option reverts back to Standard Ship. I can continue to fiddle around with it, but so far it's just not letting me change the option... I must have ...

New ships?

There are (really awesome) new models for new ships. A light ship, and heavy ship. Apparently, there's also an option in-game to decide which ship to use. Does this actually function? And do the ships have any differences? Whenever I use spacebar to select a new ship, the option isn't saved. I'm alw...

Re: Playing in Steam group chat room

For whatever reason, I am having a lot of trouble trying to connect to the gamesurge server... I may try again some other time, but I like the Steam group. Feels like home to me. I may join the IRC channel if I ever get my IRC client connected to it, but I'll be in the Steam group every minute I'm o...

Re: Galactic Event IV (D2X-XL multiplayer event)

No worries, I can host as long as my internet isn't being heavily used. I share it with quite a few people, so sometimes they feel like they want to download a 5 GB file and I can't stop them ;) But I'm capable of hosting. Currently, I'm still playing around with settings to get the game to run as s...

Playing in Steam group chat room

I'm currently hosting a game on the tracker, and I'm also in the D2X-XL Steam group chat room if anyone would like to come in and chat or play. I haven't played in forever, and I'm really eager to see if it runs as well as I'd like, and to clean off all this rust that's been building up. I'll be in ...

Re: D2X-XL quick installation guide (MS Windows)

Valuable lesson: Always check Diedel's signature before asking a question. His signature contains 90% of all the information you'll ever need regarding setting up and running D2X-XL ;)

@Hawkins, fantastic! I'll be able to make it then. If it were today I would have had to miss it!

1.15.309 download link

The download link for the latest version of XL seems to loop-back to the downloads page... I also tried the Sourceforge.net D2X-XL page, but the Windows folder is empty. I don't know if I'm missing something or if I cought you between uploading a new version, or something like that... Where can I fi...
