So, I'm playing Descent! r u?

Post by Jediluke » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:36 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!

I don't want to brag, but I'm definitely worse!

Rangers, huh? They're still around? Somehow that figures. :)

How do you even play Descent online in 2013? Do I have to find my old Kali keys somewhere? I think I printed them out . . . somewhere . . . half a lifetime ago.

Descent is practically my passion. I prefer D2 and D2X-XL, but I still do quite well at D1 and D3.
See you in the mines! :D

I switched to mouse because I couldn't find a good joystick. Never thought I'd be a mouser.... Was a bit of an adjustment.
I'll see you at the LAN later this month!

I'm gonna have to find a new stick sometime soon. My current 3D Pro is getting close to dying.

I've been feeding my addiction to D1 on-and-off for the last few years, and I'd love in on some multi-player action. So if anyone wants some new cannon fodder, count me in!

I totally haven't a clue how to find games, though. I can make it work between my local PCs but that's about it.

Hey JediLuke!

Feeling nostalgic, I just got DXX-Rebirth going and was playing a little.

I even looked up Case's Ladder and saw you are still on there. And so was I!

I used to go by the name of Dove (ugh!).

Anyway, I hope to see you around. I'm interested in playing some of the old levels (besides minerva).

He should be pretty easy to find if you have the details. This page has a pretty good primer for getting started/in touch with the folks that are still playing: http://descentchampions.org/new_player.php

Sirius, thank you for the link. I'll read it today.

In looking around for some levels, I've seen you're name quite a bit.

You've really made some nice looking levels.

Thanks! For multiplayer levels I have to give a shoutout to DKH though - he's kind of like the Spaz of the 10s. :) I think all his levels are on DMDB - they're very popular on the DCL.

If you haven't already started playing, be warned - after so many years it'll probably be a steep climb back to the top, bring your mountaineering gear and lots of patience :D
