Are all the files in the right folders?

See Installation Guide for further help.

Do you have the latest drivers for your video card? I had a similar problem, but updating my video drivers fixed it.

Do you have the latest drivers for your video card? That's how I fixed that problem. (Or a similar one.)

Ok here the thing.

Please give us more info regarding your setup.

What OS are you using?
What is the system specs of your PC?
What version number of D2X-XL are you using. (Please do not say the "Latest")

Can you please give us a list of what files are in what folders?

Computers work the same everywhere, so if D2X-XL doesn't find data, it's in the wrong place.

Did you read this?

i previoudly had this problem. Could the files be named descent2.hog.hog? That happens sometimes. It is a .hog file to begin with, so there is no need for the extra extentsion :)
