Re: Descent weapons damage?

It says the HAXMEDIT there is DOS, I know I had a win32 version. Try the version included in the Robot Construction Kit.

Re: Looking for a certain "Version History" post

I bet it's because Alter-Fox cares about his image online and would rather simply provide facts than potentially start a flame war by challenging someone's beliefs.
Not every online interaction should be treated as a debate. On that note, I will no longer reply to this thread

Re: Looking for a certain "Version History" post

Good to hear. You can probably just point your friend to this thread to convince him. Karx, you might want to update this paragraph on the D1 compatibility page . Robots and AI D2X-XL uses the D2 robot models and AI for Descent 1 levels. This may not give you the most genuine Descent 1 experience wi...

Re: Does anyone have some older versions of D2X-XL?

The Sourceforge SCM keeps a history of every revision made to the source since it was put there. Karx has also tagged all of the major versions for easier lookup. The source of every version of d2x-xl since 1.6.193 can be retrieved by specifying a revision here . (So you don't have to hold onto them...

Re: everything implanted to XL

The hires stuff (textures, models, sounds) are rarely updated, there is no need to include them in the D2X-XL download with every update. D2X-XL download - 35.4MB D2X-XL + Hi-Res - 175.4MB That's a 400% increase in download size, updating would be hell. Not everyone has fast unlimited internet :wink...

Re: there is a problem everytime i start D2x-xl

It (should) make the game run without any new features introduced by D2X-XL, just bug fixes and compatibility updates. It makes the game look and play like the old DOS version without the DOS issues. I am suggesting you use it because it turns off all effects and fancy lighting and just uses the sim...

Re: Self Replicating Textures

Off topic?
My GTX 260M drivers are quite up to date, I just got the latest beta ones built for BF3 last week. Are you still using Win XP or something?

Re: Self Replicating Textures

GTX 460M is a dedicated card, not integrated (this is good.) Your computer is certainly capable of running it fine, I'm not sure where the problem is. D2X-XL is usually most stable on newer computers with the latest updates, so this kind of situation is uncommon. Have you tried a fresh install of D2...

Re: Self Replicating Textures

This looks slightly similar to a problem I had long ago due to having an insufficient graphics card. This looks to be same problem, but I can't tell with just a screenshot. Are you using integrated graphics? What are your computer specs? Have you updated your video drivers?

Re: Target and damage indicators shining through walls

Is this about the drawn boxes going behind the wall or it continuing to track robots that have gone behind a wall?
If you wanted to be fancy, you could make the indicator opacity = % of robot currently visible, but I'm probably over-thinking this.

Browse to the d2x-xl folder, shift-right-click d2x-xl.exe, click "copy as path". Press start, paste the path into the search bar then add " -pureD2" (note the leading space) to the end and press enter.

Re: there is a problem everytime i start D2x-xl

The next step would be to try another 3D game made in the last 6 years or better would be to try D2X-XL on a fresh OS install. Now would be the perfect time to upgrade to Windows 7 :D, $30 if you (or a friend) is a student.
