Sorry for the noob question, but what files from the original Descent 2 game should to be copied over into the new D2XXL directory? I'd like to copy only the required files for a clean setup.

I know the instructions from the website said to copy the new unpacked files into the original Descent 2 directory, but there seem to be a lot of unneeded files within the old game compared to the files D2X uses. Thanks. :?

Um... I really haven't tried something like that myself, but you could always copy files until it stops complaining about something missing I guess.

Stuff I know you'll need:
descent2.ham
descent2.hog
descent2.s11
descent2.s22
groupa.pig
water.pig
fire.pig
ice.pig
alien1.pig
alien2.pig
All .mvl files, if you have movies installed

There is only a few files you don't really need.
Though I haven't deleted them because they don't hurt D2X-XL.

Anyways.
We have some Installation Guides if you wish to look them over at the Descent2.de forum. ;)

As Sirius said, it think those are the Really needed files.
And about the extra files i'm not completely sure, but as far as i know all .386 files, ERegcard (this is only an old Interplay registering utility) files and the Setup.exe aren't needded at all by D2X-XL.

However, i think Descent.cfg IS needed for D2X-XL.

Follow exactly the file and folder structure as laid out in the installation guide and be happy.

I have the MS-DOS version 1.1 of Descent 2 presently installed. Should I update this version with the 1.2 patch from Planet Descent or just install a clean copy of Descent 2 Win 95, The Infinite Abyss, from my disk, which I think is version 1.2?

The Win 95 version contains a lot more files than the MS-DOS version, some of which I assume may be needed for D2X-XL?

You need D2 v1.2 to work with D2X-XL.

You can patch it if you want, but The Infinite Abyss already is version 1.2.
