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

The Page File is taking 1549. That leaves 115MB of free RAM. The page file is virtual memory, memory stored on the HDD. It does not use physical memory for the page file. Good point with the shared memory though. If that is the problem, turning "Render Quality" and "Mesh Improvement&...

Re: Playing custom music in D2XXL

This is included in the Installation Guide, found on the main site and in Karx' signature. If you can't get it working, read my reply in the thread directly below this one.

Re: Lightning control and music

Sorry for the lack of reply, have you tried using the full path of each song in the playlist file? Each line should just contain the full path of the track. Also, the path to the playlist should be in quotes in the d2x.ini (because it contains spaces). -playlist "C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\...

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

When you got your computer, did it act like a new computer asking you to set it up or did the previous owner leave his installation intact? How do other games perform on that computer?

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

Well, your computer looks more than fast enough to run D2X-XL at reasonably high settings. I think you video drivers are still outdated though, try this link: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/driver_video_ati_27168D.exe The slowdown is probably a software issue, do other gam...

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

Click start, type dxdiag and press enter (if you see a popup about digital signatures click yes), click "Save All Information...", open the resulting text file and paste the contents here. That will give us more info about your computer.

Full list here.
Apparently it includes the original D1 and D2 levels, but I can't find those lightmaps anywhere on the site :/

Re: started playing d2x-xl again

Welcome back carmatic! The long lightmap computation is normal. Lightmaps should not be recalculated unless the level file or your lightmap settings change I believe. Karx has included pre-computed lightmaps in many of his level downloads. The issues with the menus and explosions are bugs and should...

Re: How patch to 1.2?

I'd say turning down "Image Quality", and "Render Quality" down a notch or two should have the most drastic effect for a barely noticeable difference. If debris smoke is on and "Amount of Debris" is very high, exploding robots can be killer. Except for the stuff in &quo...

Re: brief checkin etc

It could be the PSU, especially if you added or upgraded something recently. You could use a power supply calculator (I'd say add 50-100w overhead if you use a simpler calculator), or you could disconnect all non essential components (especially CD and HDD) and try to run the VGA test. When my PSU w...
