semi-sub-official hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
damn that was a cheasy thread id
anyway weve been having really awesome games for the past 3 or 4 days and we want more players. ulala has been so kind as to keep a d2 server going for the community to enjoy. we hope to see you around there.

to play you need :
d2x-xl which can be dled (as well as any custom missions we may be flying) here
descent 2 data files can be found here

extract both in the same directory and run the exe (i think)
in the multiplayer menu select join udp/ip netgame
the ip is 128.193.246.12 and port is 28342
hit enter and there should be a game there.
if noones playing its because were all asleep or otherwise occupied.
admins, hilight!

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
Sorry to steer the conversation away from the (very worthwhile) multiplayer aspect of the thread (I'm really enjoying the multiplayer).

But I'm having something strange happen with my OpenGL after playing. Ordinarily I have an OGL screen saver that turns itself own flawlessly after 3 minutes of screen inactivity. However after playing D2 I find myself only getting a black screen where once there was coloured goodness. I tried changing to another OGL screensaver and the same thing happens. Infact the only way to get things back to how they were is to restart the machine.

What gives?

I'll be on tonight as usual.

By the way, I couldn't rejoin your game last night. It behaved like I didn't have that level you were playing ("fire and steel" or something like that), even though I did in fact have it, and the auto-download thing wasn't working. Let's try to get all the levels we want to play in advance.

I'll see what I can do about putting together a .zip everyone can d/l with the levels I'll be hosting with. Strange auto-download wasn't working.. I was sure to have it enabled.  :doubt:

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
It's funny, I've never played Descent online and this is the first time I've played D2.  I got Descent 3 last year but never got into it.  I got Descentone with an ancient pc, it was fun but my newer pc runs it to quickly, almost like it's being fast forwarded.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
im also working on a level, not sure if anyone will like it but wel see. id like to replace the pyro with something freespacy though. but the descent model converter has some rather strict modeling requirements.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
I wonder if it'd be possible to code in an actual dedicated server option, with map rotation, working auto-d/l, etc... Sorry the server is a little.. well, bumbling. I try to check it as often as I can to ensure things are working properly.

er.. so yeh... does it work ok with 56K dialup?? :nervous:
This is a blast.  I was dreading hooking up the old dosbox for this.  I absolutely love this game still to this day.  Both of em that is, D1 and D2.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
damn my hog file went corrupt on me. ive tried every trick but it refuses to load for further editing. i can still edit the rl2 file and i still got my custom pog but ive tried every hog editor out there and i still get the same load failure when i try to load it up in dle.  oh well, my levels suck anyway.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
i remember having similar problems with dmb2. get something near completion and then the mission file gets corrupted. it had this really cool hyperspace speed tunnel that took me all day to make. it would have led to the boss chamber that would have my custom gatling boss i made awhile back. aside from that it also had a large vertical shaft that would have had various rooms at each level. it would have also had vertical speed tunnels to make traversing the shaft alot faster. oddly the mission still works in game. assuming dle continues to let me edit the pog file i should be able to continue work on it and hog everything later. but im tired and i dont feel like any more modding today.

They would eat you for breakfast. The guys at the DBB have never stopped playing Descent. ;)

At the DBB, we are currently working on providing a unified tracker service to allow for easy D1/2 game access.

Nuke,

read your PM. I might be able to fix your level file.

Re auto download: Both players need to have it enabled. If it doesn't work, try to increase the auto-d/l timeout.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
Sorry I didn't join last night; I got tied up with some things and forgot about it until 4:00 or so, after which you had left.

I have several crazy levels lying around. I made them when I was 10 or 11 (with the old DMB2) and they aren't exactly of the highest quality, but a few of them are somewhat decent.

They'd be fun to try out.  :) I increased the auto-d/l timeout, so if you have it enabled, it should work.. hopefully.
