Descent still being played...join us

Post by Jediluke » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:38 am

Hey guys...if anyone is still left alive in here....
I'm playing Descent (1&2) (DXXRebirth technically)

Tobycat introduced me to it and where it's being played. Descent Rangers MUMBLE server.

If anyone is interested in joining us you can see who is online and everything at http://www.descentrangers.com/Home/Index

Not a lot of pilots left, not surprisingly...but we have had a couple of 8 player games and I've had some good 1 on 1s. Got my arse handed to me a couple of times.

I hope to see you guys there!

DXX-Rebirth was the first Descent in which I played after 12 summer breaks. Still I remember that impression=) Now not to tear off me from 2X-XL. You at all don't play it on a network? If you play, on what days?

My friends often play different games across MUMBLE, including D1-2Rebirth. But at present I am fond of other games. Just in case here the link (server works only in the evening Moscow time)
But I so understand that to you will stir a language barrier, unfortunately.

Umm. Something tells me that's SDL's fault, which also means it may not be possible to use it at present...

I would join in, certainly, to show you how awesomely bad I am at this game(!), but I've already tried out for the Rangers and what with classes and real life tragedies I wasn't able to be active more than once or twice a month; so rather than ask them to reactivate whatever they'd need to reactivate every time I wanted to come back, or ask for special treatment, I've decided to stick with Lan games (I have a brother and a friend who both like Descent), the Descent Task Force (which has gone through some rough times recently but I think it's still around -- much more informal than the Rangers) and even less formal games.

Besides, even though I have lots of fun playing Anarchy I'm really mostly a fan of Hoard and Co-op.

That said I would love to show the legendary birdseye how legendarily bad I am at this game. I've only won once. And the only player known to be good in that game was Behemoth, who left a few minutes after I joined and didn't come back till the end of the round :P.
The eyes of the plush lobster stared deep into my soul. I touched it, made as if to pick it up, and then I was a panther.

Thanks Behe, Jedimaster helped me already though.

Anyone know why they added all sorts of strange mouse controls to D1 Rebirth? The Mouse in D1x was perfect, I don't get why they added/changed stuff

Mouse input for rebirth probably changed because zico used a completely different input library in order to make it work out of box with more recent versions of windows without requiring excessive user hacking or frustration.
