if you encounter any situations where D2X-XL crashes, please try to make a save file short before that situation occurs and send it to me together with an explanation how to provoke the crash.
Btw, v1.5.125 available with a lot of D1 related fixes and a very nice new feature (press Alt+W in-game ).
I can add new resolutions to D2X-XL. Just tell me which.
Well I haven't really been able to reproduce them reliably, aside from the exit sequence crashes. I'll see if I can find anything specific that causes them. (it's with the latest version, the one that was released on 2/17) What does alt-w do? It seems to have no effect for me.
It would be nice to have 2048x1536 as a possible resolution, if it's not too much work on your part.
I've seen these guys and I'm a D2 lover by heart. But I can't get there software working on any of my comps. Every time I start up d2x-xl, it opens loads up a black screen, then quits. No debug information is given. I would really love to join you guys, but I have no idea how I should go about fixing this problem. Could I get some help please?
I got the same problem when I first tried D2X-XL, but it was because I accidentally had my descent2.hog file in some other folder for some reason. So make sure you have all the data files in place. (Nuke's link in the first post should have them all if you're missing any)
BTW, I was wondering how many people would be interested in trying out entropy sometime... perhaps on the weekend. What if everyone who's interested post what times they will be able to play and we schedule a game or games? (Anytime after 4pm Thursday and from 11am- 3am Friday through Sunday is good for me, time zone is Eastern US)
I would also be very interested in trying that, as well as CTF. If we can get four or more players without any weird glitches, we could play one of these team gametypes. I used to play entropy quite a bit in D3 and it's a pretty cool idea.
Most of those times will work for me, although 11:00 pm or later is usually preferable. A friday or saturday night is probably the best time to get as many people as possible.
By the way, does anyone know how the hoard mode works in D2? I have only played that in D3 and seem to remember that every level had goal zones somewhere where you could offload the orbs, but I could find any such place when we tried it a week ago. Are there special hoard-compatible maps that need to be used?
