Descent II: First Strike Demo [Music Fixed!]

Post by LightWolf » Sat Nov 07, 2015 5:45 pm

Welcome to my latest project, a port of First Strike into Descent II.
http://www.enspiar.com/dmdb/viewMission.php?id=1081

Features of the demo (and final version) include:
-Each and every level in full Descent II
-Descent II Robots
-Two of the bosses from Descent II (One featured in the demo)
-A secret level teleporter on every level
-Descent II weaponry only in the secret levels (Muahaha!)
-Several minor tweaks and edits (for improved gameplay)
-Much much more

There are a few major changes. For starters, the music for levels 7 and 8 have been swapped. I've also switched around the order of the secret levels - S2 first, followed by S3, with S1 last.

Demo 1.1 Updates:
-Music now works
-Level 7's secret teleporter now works
-The level 7 boss now drops an extra life

Feel free to post feedback and suggestions!

All the D1 levels have already been converted to D2 if you didn't know.

Is your version better?

I'd say so.

Well, like Merlin said - not much point in making a port, since people have been making remakes with actual changed geometry (haven't stumbled on any of those yet, but still). The port is workable I guess. Everything works etc, but you didn't really have much work to do - just convert the level, switch up several textures and add some D2 assets.

I don't think a secret teleporter in every level is a good idea, since they'll likely all be useless after level 1 where everyone's going to find the teleporter.

I might change that for the final version.
