x2!

If you are not sure? Check you folder settings.

If the following option is enabled. Try disabling it to see if the hog file has been renamed as Kaizerwolf mentioned. ;)

Ok... Your setup is all over the place!

Here are some pics to illustrate the Folders & Files setup.
Click on the links below to see the pics that show what files go where.

Descent2 <--- Main directory
cache
config
data
demos
missions
models
movies
profiles
savegames
screenshots
sounds2
textures

PLEASE NOTE:
You do not have to install Descent2 in the "C:\" drive or the "GAMES" folder.
This install was installed using the Descent 1 & 2: The Definitive Collection CDs for Windows OS.
It includes the Vertigo Series + more. So some files may not match your setup.
;)

i'm pretty sure that once you download the D2X-XL package, you get the .hog. I'm not positive, but it maybe...

What video card and driver set does your PC have?

As I said before. An up-to-date OS and video card is best.
