Thanks mate, I appreciate the help.

 

I've not played a non-RTS peer-to-peer game for years, that'll be interesting. I'll just have to treat it like I used to treat playing on dial up.

Thanks for the bug report! The installer grabs the Ranger mission packs from a mirror on their server. It looks like there's something wrong with it. I'll ask Verran to look into it ASAP :)

 

EDIT: Should be fixed now! :)

Link in the OP for the installer download appears to be down, does anyone else have this problem? Is there a mirror?

Sorry mate, it's 5AM here in the UK. I've been up all night so I'm going to bed. I'll take you up on it some other time, though, if the offer is still open?

As Retro and Rebirth continue to develop features independently player file settings can no longer be remembered between both source ports. Because of this I've decided to split the two into separate installers. You can now download each one independently.

 

If you run the Retro installer you can point it at your old Rebirth installation directories to copy over the files.

 

With the switch, I've also done some bug fixing and a few feature changes, so as always, if you see a bug let me know and I'll fix it as soon as I can.

Actually there's no longer anywhere online that you can buy it digitally. You can look on ebay (or other auction sites) for a hard copy though.

 

Of course there are always *ahem* less legal ways of attaining it *ahem*.

There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish

noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow stuff up.

unfortunately, the only way to get the games right now is to buy a used copy.

Oh really? What about here?

 

Another forum member Obi-Wan Kenobi also lives in the Netherlands and he has no problems buying legitimate copies of Descent through eBay. Check out his collection here. Perhaps you could message him for advice.

Hi,

 

I own all the DVDs of the 3 chapters of Descent, Descent 2 + Vertigo Series and Descent 3.

Many years ago I moved to Canada, but I didn't feel the need to bring my descent copies here since I didn't knew about Rebirth.

The original DVDs are still in Italy and I would like to avoid to buy the games again..

 

Is there a way I can find some downloadable images of the DVDs on the net?

Somebody could help me please?

 

Thank you

Jones

Sorry, we can not share the retail game files with you or point you where to find them online since it's not "abandonware." Doing so would be illegal for us since there's no way to know that you actually own the game and will result in us being banned from this forum/game.

 

Your options to get the game files:

1. Buy on Steam or GOG. While you can buy them at their current prices, there's frequently sales where you can pick them up for 50% off or more. Maybe you can get your fix in with the shareware version of the game (shareware content is an option in the installer) until there's a sale to save some $?

2. Have someone back home copy the CDs and then send them to you. While you need the full CDs for D3, you can get by with just some of the files from D1/D2 CDs. You can find the files needed inside the 'README-D1X.txt' and 'README-D2X.txt' files.

 

Again, sorry we cannot share the files with you. We would love to have more pilots playing the game!

I see,

no problem.

I am playing the shareware at full resolution of 1920x1200, and this is already awesome!!!!

 

I will bring my original CDs from Italy the first time I am going to see my family.

 

Thank you

Jones

FYI: GOG is having a sale on the series (D1, D2, and D3) right now where each game is $3.39. I recommend it so you won't have to worry about the physical discs again! :)
