So guys, are you familiar with some of those rare levels such as Earth Strike, Demon Bridge, Magnum Four, Firebase Omega etc that were installed along with Descent from the CD? I'm only now discovering this wealth of missions (because of my decision to go full retro and make a DosBox installation of Descent). I can't see these levels uploaded to the Descent Level Database either, so they must be pretty rare. Most of them are fairly small, but have this amazing retro feel to them, and Demon Bridge has actually amazing geometry for something made in 1995. I'll post a complete list if you want me to.

I've actually extracted Demon Bridge for personal use.

Which version of the CD? There were a few different ones. I have the "Levels of the World" Anniversary Edition and it has like 100 bonus levels, most are kinda crap though. There are around ten I still play. "Demon Bridge" is one of my all time favorites along with Luke's "Super Station" and "Outpost Death."

Yeah, Super Station and Outpost Death are pretty sweet too.

Not sure what version of the CD that was - it installed 1.4a and it was unpatchable via the d1_15 patch, so I just updated it by swapping in the executable, the HOG and the PIG from my regular D1 folder, which were all 1.5. The installation contained 15 or so missions, definitely taken from the Levels of the World roster.

Heh, I didn't realize that those missions were rare or anything. I still remember them showing up in my ancient Definitive Collection install without needing to install the LOTW pack.
