Are you still running that old version?

The latest version of D2X-XL is much more stable. Get it now if you dont have it.

it says in the log that it is .72 i think but on the game screen it says .78 ive tried a few things like lowering coronas lighting ect.. still the game crashed, but i saved the game right before going through the exit and it let me go to next level. I also whent to ati's website and there was an update for my card that came out in march that i didnt know about. so the auto update didnt work in my ati settings but it just made it run without be so sluggish now running smooth ,just wish i could fix the exit crash.

Hi there,

before you ask for some help visit http://www.descent2.de, use the Sidemenu to go to d2x-xl and check, whether a new version is available. The last version was released some time before your last post...

Version Info:
v1.12.81
Fixed: The game crashed when trying to render the exterior terrain in D1 missions' end level sequence
Fixed: The exit tunnel was very dark in D1 exit sequences
Fixed: Parts of the exterior terrain of D1 exit sequences was missing
Fixed: The D1 exit sequences' exterior terrains' moons and planets were rendered as two halves
Fixed: The player ship could be given D2 weapons as built-in equipment in D1. If one of these was the superlaser, the ship didn't have any lasers at all
Changed: The program version info will not be printed into background images of score displays and the like anymore

There is always a pretty high chance that your special problem is solved already with the lastest version available.
Intel Q9550 (E0) @ 3420 MHz and standard voltage with Sonic Tower Rev.2, Geforce GTX 260 (896 MB), Asus P5Q Deluxe, 6 GB GSkill DDR2-1066, 2x500 GB Seagate @ Raid 0, Soundblaster XFi, Sharkoon Rebel12 Case, Teufel Concept Magnum 5:1, Samsung 2494 SW , Genius Navigator 535, Logitech Wingman FF, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

*EDIT* What I really meant was "Go ahead and update :) "

I must comment on this however:

rlk123go wrote: but i saved the game right before going through the exit and it let me go to next level.


This sounds familiar to me. I tend to get crashes after playing D2X-XL for about 2 or 3 hours. Usually at a random point but it happens most often when entering, exploring and leaving secret levels.

But if save my game when entering every level then it seems fine and wont crash at all for the next 6 hours. I also found that the game never crashes if I just clicked the .exe 15 minutes ago.

On the other hand I can play Anthology for 5 hours and never get a crash. Obviously these crashes are tied to loading times.

BTW, what is your system hardware rlk123go? Processor? RAM? Video?

Doesn't matter. :roll:

Always update D2X-XL before continuing to posting questions regarding problems you may be having.
Some things that get fixed isn't always made note of on the History Page.

Diedel will not give support for older versions of D2X-XL. Only the current version.

So update. Test to see if the problem is still there.
If still there? Then make a bug report on the SF.net site.

Please be sure you report the current version of D2X-XL.
What system specs you have:
CPU, MEM, Video Card, Operating System (Linux, Mac, Windows95, 98, XP, Vista...).
Plus be sure to update ALL drivers for Video Card and OS.
...and state what happens and how you are able to reproduce it. Provide as much detail as possible. ;)

You have been told to write stuff in a readable way three times. If you cannot be bothered with that, we cannot be bothered with helping you.

Your reply is impertinent. We owe you nothing here.

I cannot tell how much I hate an attitude like yours. People like you get some free software and believe they have every right to demand being helped with any problems they have with it - though they haven't paid a dime for it, nor contributed to it.

If you cannot behave, but believe everyone has to adjust to your ways and throw a frenzy when being told, you're wrong.

If you don't stop it now I'll give you a 1 week ban to give you a thinking break and to sort your SF.net issues out instead of littering this forum.

Edit: After I had asked you to user proper punctuation the first time, your posts got better - for a while. Conclusion: If you try, you can do it. Nobody expects perfection from you. But apparently the main problem is that it is more comfortable for you not to try but to keep doing it as you've always done.

I don't want to deal with people like you, because people like you make my life harder w/o returning anything good to me.

And I don't want to work on this project any more either.

I will help people who have donated to the project because I feel obliged too, but that's it. There's no reward in doing this for me, so what.

And I hate being attacked by people like you who apparently cannot be bothered to think before they post.

Read this to underst: http://www.descent2.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=473

Just to make myself clear.
