Re: Descent - The Enemy Within - Blind/Custom Weaponed/No Se

We have two bosses down and we're working our way through the fire set of levels! More craziness and death to ensue! Hope you all are enjoying my pain! :lol:

Well, the first seven videos are up detailing my trials from level 1 - level 5, the first boss level. I hope everyone is enjoying the series so far and there are plenty more videos to come! :)

Re: Trying to work with Enemy Within + Weapons Mod + New Mus

And I may not even be able to. I've been running through level 10 about 10+ times now and I keep getting crashes in D2X-XL and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. I'd hate to continue the series in Rebirth or plain old Descent since the transition would be jarring. I also don't want to start o...

Re: Trying to work with Enemy Within + Weapons Mod + New Mus

The songs already work well enough as they are. So I don't believe I need updates yet. Right now in level 10 where I'm getting hammered by whatever boss is in the outer ring. If I so much as get within his line of view, I'm dead for some reason.

Re: Idea for a Counterstrike playthrough

Regardless if it was intended, if Fusion is a legit way to get at his back at all times, I just might consider the challenge since it would make it easier once I inevitably run out of smart missiles.

Re: Trying to work with Enemy Within + Weapons Mod + New Mus

The music ended up being pretty soft for levels 1-4 sadly. Levels 5 and beyond should be more prominent on the music volume. I'm not going back to redo levels 1-4, they are pretty good as is, sans louder music volume. Hope that doesn't detract Alter-Fox.

Re: Idea for a Counterstrike playthrough

This was exactly the challenge I had in mind for Counterstrike. But I'm currently not planning on doing that run this year, probably next year. However, if someone beats me to the punch of that challenge, I'll have to think up another one. :|

Re: Trying to work with Enemy Within + Weapons Mod + New Mus

I usually record and post later on Youtube. I've only 'just' started getting onto the Twitch streaming scene. But right now its more catered towards my Oblivion streaming. I don't think I'll be live streaming this series. So expect a post-record upload on Youtube later this year.

I think I got everything worked out so far. The only issue now seems to be a bug with the descent2.ham with the custom weapons mod and d2x-xl. I posted a bug tracking ticket and it seems to be tracked now. No idea when it'll be fixed, but when it is, that's when I'll start recording. So far, I got h...

Re: RetroChallengeGamer, New LP'r on the Market!

You are right, there is sometimes very little to talk about in the game. After about 10+ levels in, you kind of run out of things to talk about. A few levels are notable exceptions, being topic discussions in themselves, but beyond that....yeah. lol
