Re: Win7 vs. Linux

Updates zu installieren ist für mich keine Zeitverschwendung, weil der Computer danach sicherer ist bzw. sein sollte. Ärgerlich sind Betriebssystemupdates dann, wenn Sie wegen Sicherheitslöchern installiert werden müssen, die auf schlampiger Programmierung der Ausgangsversion beruhen. Ungeschlagen i...

Re: Win7 vs. Linux

Hi, that update orgy affects all Windows versions. The only way to avoid that download marathon is to merge the content of the original windows dvd and the once downloaded updates and to burn a new installation dvd of that image. I did it with Win98, Win XP and I will do it with my original Win7. It...

Re: Red Faction Armageddon

The things I want to know is..... MOD tools! ...and someone to do a Descent MOD for it! hehe Is that asking too much??? :P :rofl: No problem. Some D3 Weapons are already implemented, so it will be no problem to build D4 from it.... ;-). But seriously, if we would move to a different engine, I prefe...

Re: Descent 1/2 help

It´s tricky, we know it. But after reading the guides and investing some work to install it you´ll be able to enjoy D2 and D1 with improved graphics (!!), less bugs and so on. So give it a try ;-). Btw.: It is 5 o clock in the morning and I will go to bed now. Next questions will be answered later, ...

Re: Descent 1/2 help

No, don´t overwrite any files. But I think there are no files with the same name (exept readme.txt ;-)). But I don´t know exactly, because I made my last installation years ago :oops: . If you follow the guide, I am sure your d2x-xl installation will work flawlessly.

Re: Descent 1/2 help

Hmm, so i have both installed. I patch them, but at what point do I combine them? Karx installation guide http://www.descent2.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2218 said, d1 and d2 should be installed to the same folder. Maybe I was wrong. So you need to copy your d1 installation into your d2 instal...

Re: Descent 1/2 help

Hi and welcome to the forum, 1. Install D1 2. Install D2 (notice that the folders of D1 and D2 basic installations should be different !) 3. apply patch 1.4a to D1 installation. 4. update D2 to V1.2 5. continue here http://www.descent2.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2218 (moving files to the right...

Re: FS Open

Hi, Freespace 1 is one of my favorite game in that genre together with Wing Commander 3. There is a mod available to play it again with improved graphics ? Fine, will check it soon. And I am happy that Wing Commander will come back too... as a mod for FS2 (called Wing Commander Saga). The second epi...

Re: Problems with installation on OS X

Hi Mynock, are you sure that we are allowed to merge the official demo files with additional files (manipulates the original release) and to offer this stuff without permission ? Before doing that someone should read the license agreement (copyrights) of the demo carefully. btw.: Glad to see that yo...

Re: Problems with installation on OS X

Frequently offered updates --> Traffic --> huge costs and
for all users --> unneccessary downloads

My smallest d2x installation: 2,71 GB !

Re: Seltsamer Darstellungsfehler

@ noliko: Wir helfen gern ! Oder anders: Nett gefragt --> Vollsupport ;-) Aber (!) ich hätte gerne gewusst, was du glaubst, wo der Freeze herkam.... also was stimmte an deiner Installation nicht, dass d2x-xl einfach eingefroren ist ? Es könnten ja noch andere das Problem haben und wir könnten schnel...

Re: Seltsamer Darstellungsfehler

Okay,

mit welcher *.exe startest Du d2x-xl ? d2x-xl-omp.exe ? Oder d2x-xl.exe ?
Versuche in jedem Fall mal die andere !
Hast Du deinen Sounds2 Ordner überprüft ? (Unterordner D1 mit Wavs drin, Unterordner d2x-xl mit Wavs drin) ?

Re: Seltsamer Darstellungsfehler

Wie gesagt, Ordnerstruktur und der richtige Inhalt (auch was den Hires-Kram angeht) ist wichtig. Und mein Tipp mit dem -printlog switch. Da unsere Postings sich überschnitten haben (habe meines nochmal geändert), hast du das wahrscheinlich überlesen. Da andere Spiele funktionieren, ist nicht die Har...

Okay, hört sich ganz gut an.... bis auf das Einfrieren :shock: . Du hast doch die Installationsanleitung befolgt ? Und Hires-Inhalte unter Verwendung der Pfadstruktur entpackt ? Das genaue Befolgen der Installationsanleitung ist ungemein wichtig, besonders die Ordnerstruktur und deren richtiger Inha...
