Hello, Dillirgaf. Welcome back! Are you interested in flying again? There are still a few of us who play Descent... you still have your kali serials somewhere? :)

I actually did come across my Kali #s, old D2 Discs and dusted off the old trusty SWP. I just got the D2X Rebirth working VERY well on my puter. Only thing left for me is to get the SWP working guess I need to research the DB to USB I've seen in some topics... I'll be getting into some games to receive my butt whoopins again real soon :wink:

Wow! It's stunning to see so many familiar handles ten years on. Games have come and gone but nothing created a lasting community like Descent/Kali did. Not sure how many of you remember me, but I played pretty heavily D1/2/3 from 1995-1999 usually on Kali. Of the lot that I see here I do remember:

and (I think) Sirian!

I also remember someone named Sparhawk (from MN?), who made levels back in the day and it would be great to chat with again. Anyone know where he's off to?

Those days were high school days, and it's been a tremendously shaping ten years since then. I know I have a Sidewinder somewhere. If anyone wants to fire up a game for old time's sake, feel free to message.

I remember the name Skelter ...long way back. Ya Spar was a good buddy of mine on kali altho he rarely actually played the game, he was very much enmeshed in the community.

Sadly I don't know what 99% of the old players are up to these days. From the sounds of it the NYDP crew is still on the board and maybe parts of the atLANta crew but most other people are MIA.

- griffin ('94-'99) / d0ggY ('99-'02)

i play descent since 1995, in kali since 1998 I think, i think the best player ever is Jediluke, and the player who I ever hated is KILLGOOD !!! remember KILLGOOD ?? a ★■◆● enemy, hehe

hey, anyone can give me a serial ?!!??!?!? i will love it

Yep. JEDILUKE and KILLGOOD i both remember... vaguely... as in coming on sporadically to render an entire cave worth of spew. Wonder what they're up to now?

Still looking for an Argentine who has a Sidewinder Pro...

I still have my Sidewinder and it works great. If you dont want to use a sidewider though, there is a decent stick out from Logitech called teh Xtreme 3D Pro. It works in a pinch as a good replacement.

Shout out to brother Spud!

Most of you I remember and played.

Because I'm a club dj I logged on in the afternoon or after 4am est and all day on Sundays.

I liked zod. He was insane. \"All Bow To Zod\"

Who's the guy in Kali who signed on with... \"\"?? pulls up with a semi full of beer and passes it around\" or something like that?

There was a guy called \"TRAMPLER\" that seems to fit that... at least to my memory.

I'd like to play. The problem is that it seems as though many people are disappearing on Kali into thin air. Now, at times, on the main Descent server, I've seen only 12 users there. Kali looks like she's in sick health.

I'm wondering, if these people are leaving to go somewhere else to play, where are they going, that I may get some games in?

I heard some people using Hamachi. I don't know if Xfire has Descent support (that is, Rebirth) as of yet so I don't know. But I'm curious as to how people use Hamachi to play a Descent 1 or 2 game.

I'm still alive. I don't game much these days with 2 girls (4.5 yrs old and 11mos old)

Most recent games played...Crysis and FarCry2 (nickname theinvid)

(MadJoca) \"i play descent since 1995, in kali since 1998 I think, i think the best player ever is Jediluke\"

--poor must not have played that many Descenters back in the day ;)

Has any other D-geek ever wondered (Last Starfighter-like) IF the Earth were being invaded by aliens and the Descent Pyro was real...which pilots would be called forth by the Earth governements to fly the pyros against our enemies? lol :)

If you created the roster of pilots to defend earth...who would be on it?

My list (when they were at the top of their game - and likely a few top players I'm forgetting):



Wow, I just found this link from when I was doing pilot ratings back in the early 2k's.*/http://dwa ... s/home.htm

That brings back some memories. Some of you may be on there.

I would choose players with anarchy & all around skills, not a bunch of players with mostly 1 on 1 skills…

Not a comment about above list… :P

You'd definitely want someone who can raise hell and take a lot of them out fast, like oh say, Krom. :)

J, otaY played around the time of AaronB, Strap, Scoundrl, DrDon, etc. He mostly just idled on Kali and joined random games but was definitely a monster.

Excellent list, Dog. Since I've played Warlord and Jeds a bunch in the past, IMO, they're more than worthy to be placed among the greats. As long as they wouldn't be too rusty, I think I'd hitch a ride with them the day aliens invade the Earth. :)

Oh, and there's perks with being Warlord's wingman. There'd be plenty of time for naps between each battle. I had to say it! :D

O ya and throw DJcjr on that list,his AIM would SAVE the world.And that aint no joke :) .Im on Kli alot lately,and im really really rusty :twisted: .Looking forward to it.

Hey guys!
Used to play Descent 1/2 quite a lot as well. My name used to be SCREAM. It was way before all caps went out of fashion!

I do remember the great AaronB, Kevlar, DrDon, onyx, kiln, bulldog, Karash, fathom, Dmcd (who I was never ever able to beat), siko (?), Scoundrl and more if I think a bit harder.

I'm amazed there's still a community forum! Hope everyone's fine and that someone remembers me as well! :D

Scream?!?! holy crap, can't believe I left you off that list. You mangled me numerous times as well. Before d0ggY and back when you were around, I played as \"griffin\" on IDL and Official D.L.

How's it going?!?!

And ya War, we had some good battles a few times lol

Hey Sirian, I remember playing you a few times way back when. Do you remember some intense matches on the ladder against Kraken and Bionic? None of us play Descent much anymore but those days were awesome fun.

AaronB, JCC were some others I played with back in the day. My kali number was like 112 :).

wiley there's a name I vaguely remember was that awhile ago. I went by \"griffin\" back then ...ltns.

Wow! I found all of you! lol, at least, if you still read the dbb :)

Hey Warlord, Djcjr, Jeds, d0g, kir, sirius, MD!

Tobes! ebebbebebebebebebebbebebebebebebeb!!!!!!! Miss u bro.

Sirian... :evil:

Yo d0g, that page you posted is awesome man! I'm honored to be on it! :)

I remember wiley too, from a looooonnnggg time ago but I was an ultra-noob back then.

Man this game...took up 10 - 11 solid years of my life. Many great matches, many great friends. I miss it, a lot. I'm glad to see that you're all doing good. Heck, many of us literally grew up together, I mean when I got kali back in 97 I was 13 years many of us have gone off and finished college, are in our careers...some of us are married and having it's almost like reminiscing about high school, only we were all with each other for a lot longer. Sorry i was such a pain sometimes when I was younger, lol.

Hey i was thinking about putting together a Descent Memorial Page. Do any of you have any suggestions on what I should put on it? One page will have a ton of old descent graphics if any of you have some saved to cd's or to your computer ( I know I have quite a bit). If it's ok with d0ggy i'll definitely link to his page that he has here. I think I'll also put a demos page too for memorial matches, I have a few but I'll need more from the community.

I don't know, I'm open to suggestions as to what the content will be so feel free to get in contact with me :)

Ten years since UberFest '99

I joined the Rangers in 97 and went on to play some on the IDL, in one the LT.

But the most fun I had with Descent was probably coming to RangerFest in Colorado and UberFest in Atlanta in 99 with my buddies Vain and lardass and meeting people in real life.

Xciter fixed the circuit breakers...Vlider won the tourney...I played Ender in Athena and lost 20-0...I won my first IDL game (I think) against a guy who came with bama...talking with Quasar...playing kiln et al on their house LAN...buying D3 from Hal9000 before it was released back home...good times!

I never really chatted with Sirain, but I enjoyed his writing.

Wow, those are some names I remember.

Scoundrl held the #1 spot for a long time on the ladder with Wiley and I competing for the #2 spot until I finally beat Scoundrl. Wiley was a class player. That was a long long time ago.

skunk - the memorial page sounds fascinating... I wish I had screenshots or demos from way back then to contribute, but I don't even have my plr file :(

Sccream - wtf, how's your dad? He was a major factor in getting me practiced up to take Scoundrl down.
