I need help! Whenever I try to run a game straight from d3.descent.cx, descent3 runs. After the part where I choose my pilot, a message appears saying it is connecting. After a few seconds, it goes to the main menu. What do I do from there? :?
Note: If it helps, I have descent3 v1.0 because my patch isn't working :(

Hi!

You NEED to install the 1.4 Patch in order to join a game listed Descent.cx

download the patch here: http://www.descentforum.de/forum/downloads.php#3

The Euro- and US-Version is aviable for Windows there...

Without the 1.4 you have no chance...

He might have the ause version of D3. 1.4 patch for that can be found here:
http://www.descent-3.com/patches/d3/

If he has the duel juel then I think only planetdescent has those, and PD is still down.

None of the 3 patches are working. I think I have the Europe patch. You can get all patches on www.descent3.com and my auto-update doesn't appear to be working either! :x :x :x

Hang on! I hear that there is a patch on my cd! (Sold-Out Software.) I'll try that one but it may take a while because my cd-drive barely works!

Open your D3 directory and let it do its work.

Aussie patch should work. At first the US patch worked but later the Aussie patch was the only one that would work.

See if that does any better.

No. I've got a European version.
Whenever I start any of the patches, it comes up with "OldFile not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match."

Key word: Said. :P

If they say that, it means maybe in a year.

Well, good luck with it. It sounds like I can't help you. But if you find anything, do tell.
