Could always try looking at the links in the right-hand column of the Descent 3 website.

I bought it about 3 years ago but I doubt if it's ever been out of the box.....

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
On the subject of Descent 3, I don't suppose there's anything out there that brings it slightly more up to date graphically? It's still good - but I was curious to see if anything like the SCP existed for it?

I've been reading a great Descent novel lately, and sorely want to dive back into the fray ;)

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
There are mods, I have a bunch... but as far as graphics, IDK... would help if they released the source code.  ;7  (They released D1 & DII's source code, but AFAIK not D3... :sigh:)

The folks who were largely responsible for that happening were the ones who released the FreeSpace 2 Source Code.

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
Believe me, there are quite a few of us in the Descent community who would kill to get our hands on the D3 source code.  After seeing what the SCP has been able to accomplish, it's rather depressing to realize that the ultimate edition of one of the few series I love as much as FS hasn't had the same opportunity.  The DXX-Rebirth and D2X-XL projects are amazing enough in their own right, but D3 has always been my personal favorite, and I'd love to see it with a fresh coat of paint.

At any rate, if anyone out there is jones-ing for some D3 multiplayer action, Vortex is your best bet.  It's a fan-made program that incorporates a TCP/IP server browser (with level/mod auto-downloading) and an interface to the popular Descent IRC channels.

Actually for what it's worth, I just realized there's this...

It's still in production, but the screenshots are awesome!

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
This is like a coincidence lol, I just reinstalled D3/D3M and replaying Pyromania just for the fun of it. Shame I can't use the Grinder or those Hyperlaser-equipped ships in SP. Been rotating D3, X3 and NFSMW these past few weeks.

(I still get hit too easily even at the easy difficulties... better work on trichording more. :sigh:)

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
Set up your Descent config almost like Halo's --
A = Slide left
D = Slide right
W = Forwards
S = Backwards
E = AB
Q = Slide up
Z = Slide down

Mouse U/D = pitch U/D
Mouse L/R = turn L/R
Mouse Middle click = slide when pressed

Reconfigure any keys used by these... try it out, see if it helps.  :pimp:

EDIT: And get all (OK, well, ALOT) of the D3 mods here:cool:

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
It's also on GameTap if you got it.. Same goes for Freespace 1 and 2.

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
Yes, it is, but the GameTap version is singleplayer-only.

And Kal, from what I've heard, Into Cerberon is a really nice piece of work (I'd have played it myself, but there's no way this box would run Doom 3).  A lot of us in the Descent community are eagerly anticipating another project called Core Decision, a fully commercial project with Descent-esque 6DOF gameplay.  One of their team members said they're readying a large content preview in the very near future, so I'll post a link here when that comes.

Re: Where can you find Descent 3?
Cheers Mongoose, that sounds really good.

I just reinstalled D2 (and D2X-Rebirth) and have been really enjoying the gameplay. The only thing that'd really improve on that is a decent modern day graphical makeover.
