forum post reply notifications

I assumed the trouble with my not getting post reply notifications must have affected only me, else others would have reported this. My first idea is that your server's IP might be on a DNS blocklist, but it that were the case I should see a connection attempt in my mail server logs. Am I right in a...

Gee, time after time someone posts a reply to what I wrote, and I don't get to see it before I post again! Yeah, it looks like demo sound is messed up. I'm sorry. I wish I could help find the problem. I have some programming experience, but d2x-xl would be a tremendous learning curve, I think, for m...

sound not working in v1.14.83 demo

I tried to post a bug report at sourceforge.net, but my GPRS connection (Internet over GSM cell phone) changes my IP constantly *in-session*. I think SF.net has a check for in-session IP changes, and logs me out. I can't stay logged in to SF.net long enough to post a bug report. I'll ask them to con...

Demo working

I got the1.14.83 source and compiled it for Linux - demo mode is working now, you are great, Diedel! The demo with d2x-xl enhancements looks wonderful! I still don't have the configuration right to get sound in the demo. When I fix that I'll post the first Debian package.

Sorry Pumo and karx11erx, I posted before I saw either of your comments. The error given when I tried to run the demo previously was that file scoresb.pcx was not found. I thought d2x-xl.hog had been updated to include this file - sorry. When d2x-xl *is* updated, can it be found somewhere in the SVN...

I found a way to browse the latest d2x-xl files on sourceforge (something called SVN Browse), but I can't find d2x-xl.hog there anywhere. I think now that the non-support for D2 demo files was fixed in d2x-xl itself, not in the d2x-xl.hog data file. I'm compiling version 1.14.82 now.

Thanks for the supportive feedback! I understand d2x-xl.hog has been fixed to allow demo support again, so I should be able to build a demo d2x-xl.deb, but I haven't been able to get the new d2x-xl.hog. I think I need to use CVS to get it, but I can't upload my SSH public key to my sourceforge accou...

Debian d2x-xl package project

I'd like to provide a d2x-xl installation package for Debian Linux. It should also work with Debian derivatives such as Ubuntu. (I also plan a Puppy Linux pet package, but I'll leave that for another post. This thread is about planning for the first release of the Debian package. I'd like to get inp...

Sorry, Pumo, I made my last post before I saw your reply. OK, I think I understand: Any textures in textures/ are optional. Any textures in textures/d2x-xl/ are required. Right?

Oh, I think you mean all the textures I got from the Windows version, in textures/ and in textures/d2x-xl/, are necessary. If that's the case, it would be nice if optional (hires) textures went into it's own directory. Maybe /textures/d2x-xl/ could be reserved for only the necessary textures.

I see. So the textures d2x-xl needs go into textures/d2x-xl/, and the optional textures go into textures/

textures subdirectories?

I run d2x-xl on Linux. I copied over the content of the "textures" directory from the Windows d2x-xl version. It has just a few textures files in it, but there is a "d2x-xl subdirectory (that is, d2x-xl/textures/d2x-xl/) with a bunch of texture files. The instructions I have seen on t...

How/when to patch descent 2 data files

I decided to make sure my old descent 2 data files are patched to the latest patch version, which is 1.2. My experience doing this might be useful to others, hence this post. We have 3 copies of Descent 2. Two of them are the "Windows 98/95 compatible" version, and the other is for DOS. I ...

Thanks for taking care of this. My other question was, "How do I know when I need to obtain a new d2x-xl.hog (from the Windows release?)" I assume that d2x-xl.hog (and other data files), included at this time only in the Windows release, are not changed with every bugfix release. If howeve...

trouble with d2demo: no scoresb.pcx

I'm trying to put together a Debian (Linux) package to allow easy installation d2x-xl, using the Descent 2 demo files. This should allow Debian and Ubuntu users to try d2x-xl without going compiling it from source. I also plan to make a similar package for Puppy linux. These packages will have scrip...
