Re: Descent Plus (1995)(Interplay)(Rev)

Ok,just so everyone knows,I asked Interplay about this and they replied that this was NOT an official release.Just a copy of Descent somebody put in an archive and circulated.

Re: usb mouse problems

My mousepad is fine,very smooth surface,but I think part of the problem is that these older mice are usb v1.1 and I had it plugged into a usb v2.0 port.I changed it yesterday and it made quite a difference! This morning I went into the bios and disabled usb 2 and my mouse still worked fine.I've got ...

Re: usb mouse problems

Well I guess I knew most of the answer already,I dug up a ps2 mouse,plugged it in,and of course,no problem,lol.I also found a couple of usb to ps2 connectors but both of them don't work,so I guess it's the old ps2 with ball mouse for games,and my optical for everything else.I do have a joystick,but ...

usb mouse problems

I've got a usb mouse and I've noticed while playing a lot of missions in Rebirth or XL that while moving or fighting or even looking at the map,all of sudden my mouse will jerk to the left or right or even a complete circle.I know that in other games it will sometimes spin out of control,and was tol...

Magnum Mines

I have found 4 levels of a D1 set called Magnum Mines that is supposed to be a 7 level set,and my question is,does anyone know if levels 5,6,and 7 were ever made? I can't find anything beyond level 4 on any of the Descent map sites,so I thought someone here might know.Thanks:)

Re: Descent Plus (1995)(Interplay)(Rev)

Well from what I can see from the readme files of both discs the Plus version is v1.0,whereas the regular version that I bought from a local comp store is v1.5.All I can think of is that the plus version came out first,and that the one I bought is the "enhanced version" it talks about.It seems that ...

Descent Dimensions and LOTW as missions?

I posted this in the Rebirth developers section as well but have had no responses so I thought I'd try here as well.I have the Dimensions disc and the LOTW disc.I like the way the LOTW starts with being able to select what map you want to play,except that a !Contest menu selection doesn't show up in...
