Hello

Finally managed compile descent on my C1000 running pdaxii13 5.3.3.
Remaped save/load keys to O,P from alt+F2 alt+F3.
Other keys you can remap in menu.

You will need also descent.hog and descent.pig files from game
(no problem to find on net. If still problem, PM me)

Best played zoomed with usb mouse.
d1x-rebirth-sdl -menu320x240 -tmap quad (for 320x240)
d1x-rebirth-sdl -tmap quad (for 640x480)

When you are playing in 320x240, game is so fast that you won't need -tmap quad parameter.

Someone could package it properly ... just giving away binary ... thnx

EDITED: please move it to package announcemet... I made mistake ... wanted to put it there .

I could package tnite for you if no one beats me to it. wink.gif

Thanks for this, I loved Descent back in the day.

Having trouble getting it o run - error:

CODE
/games/descent$ ./d1x-rebirth-sdl -menu320x240 -tmap quad

Error: Not enough strings in text file - expecting 621, found 514

Error: Not enough strings in text file - expecting 621, found 514


I have symlinked the 2 descent.* files to /usr/local/share/games/d1x-rebirth as required.

Any ideas?

You need to have data files from version Descent 1.4a ... look here http://www.dxx-rebirth.de/ in section download -> resouces, there are pathes to update data files from version 1.0 to version 1.4

It took me about two hours to find the Descent 2 CD-ROM (which does not include descent 1 by the way).
For Descent 1 I probably have to start diggin' into boxes with floppy-disks.... Aarghhh.

The search continues.

"asleep" ???
Is that the state of mind also being known as unconscious ? huh.gif
How does that feel ? unsure.gif
I bet there are a lot of zaurus users that haven't had this feeling for a long time. wink.gif

How does the patch for the 1.0 to 1.4 version work? It does not change the descent.hog or the descent.pig files.

At this moment the application can't find the descent.sng file on start of the application. This should be locatied in the hog file isn't it?

Ya. I hadn't had a full nights sleep for a while, so I guess I was due.
