Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
Well I missed Tuesday obviously. Sorry.  :p I was at the coast all day working on a house with my dad. Anywho, I'd be up for this weekend, and I'd be happy to try hosting, but I need to know which version, where I can get it, and which maps we'd like to try.  :) I'm hoping you guys know better than I which version works best.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
Regarding the two DBBs, I can provide a little explanation over that.  DescentBB.net is the "original" DBB, which has existed at that address for several years.  A few months ago, several long-time community members had a...let's just say, "falling-out"...with the DBB's leadership, and they formed their own version at DescentBB.com.  .Net is the place you'd want to register and be active, since that's where the D2X-XL subforum is.  That's all I'll say on the matter, since there are still quite a few people in the community somewhat sore about it.

Wow, karx11erx, I had absolutley no idea you were able to get Eagle's GX in-game.  You just keep pulling off one amazing feat after another. :) As soon as I get back to school, I'm finally getting around to creating a fresh D2 install and running D2X-XL, so I can (attempt to) show these HLPers how it's done. :p

yeah, please try the mission with D1 3dfx. D2X-XL does handle the special D1 trigger types, but this trigger has no attributes at all when viewing it with a level editor (I tried both DLE-XP and DMB2, in case I had messed up something in DLE-XP that had been working in DMB2). Though it is possible though, I can't quite believe that a trigger put right in front of a blue key access should do nothing.

I played that level in D1 3dfx and that trigger doesn't do anything there either. It looks like it's just a bug in that level. There are two locked secret doors in that room with robots behind them, which are probably supposed to open when you fly into that trigger. This seems to be unrelated to the crashes though; they also used to occur with the (working) open door triggers in the ONP secret level, which work fine now.

Concerning your DBB registration: The DBB has changed servers a few times recently, which has caused login problems by users who didn't clear their cookies after such moves. You may want to clear all cookies and access it via http://www.descentbb.net, maybe that helps. If not, I'll ask KoolBear about it (he runs the DBB). He will certainly be able to help you out. :)

Thanks for the help. I tried removing my cookies out though but am still unable to register. It let me sign up at www.descentbb.com a few days ago, but that was evidently the wrong board.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
lol, I went through all my collected levels on insane about two years ago (through normal D2 Win95) and the boss fights in particular were pretty brutal. :D

I'm all tied up with homework until Tuesday, but will be pretty much free after that if anyone wants to try setting up a game again.

 
Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!

Check my D2 site regularly for new D2X-XL versions. That's a bug I fixed a while ago.

Welcome back! :)
We pretty much gave up on getting the games running (ran into a lot of bugs lately), but it might be cool to try it out again and see if we can get it working, possibly even get a bunch of people playing together again.

I dunno, anyone up for trying it out again for old time's sake?

OT: Was there ever a patch for D3 that resolved issues it had with some sound cards (like mine)? I loved that game so much.

I'd be happy to give this a go again. :) I could put up my server again since people seemed to be able to join it pretty well. If there's some genuine interest, let me know and I'll put a server up.

Which exact issues are you referring to?  I don't believe I've ever heard of any widespread problems with a specific sound card.

If you guys want some HLP vs DBB I can arrange that.  In fact I can be the DBB and you can all fight against me!! :) 5 on 1 sounds fair

Most of us Play on KALI Descent server

I rarely use direct IP because people post their internal IP address their router gives them

there were no soundcard issues with D3 just user error, use direct sound(not with EAX) thats all

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
I'm up for it. My final exams for this semester ended two days ago, so I have a lot of free time during the next few weeks.

On a side note about D3 bugs, I tried playing the game recently but was running into a strange problem with the render depth setting. If I set the slider to anything above the lowest setting, the game automatically reduces it to the minimum a few seconds into the game. Is there anything that can be done about this?

To the best of my knowledge, not really, although I'm not sure what my own copy does.  I seem to remember it being a standard bug.  It shouldn't really cause any adverse effects in-game.  Just keep in mind that you shouldn't expect SCP-level graphical performance. :p

Thanks. I'll get updated. Everyone else who wants to play should too, so we're all on the same page.  :) Next weekend might work for me, but even if it doesn't, I'll put up the server anyway.
