Hello and welcome to the DXX-Rebirth project!
This project is dedicated to two of the most impressive First-Person Shooters of the nineties:
Descent & Descent 2
DXX-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent and Descent 2 Engines for Windows, Mac OS, Linux (most *NIX systems), offering OpenGL graphics and effects, advanced Multiplayer, many improvements and new features.
Descent and Descent 2 are pretty old games so you usually run into problems running it on more recent Hardware and Operating Systems. DXX-Rebirth will also take care about this for you.
It’s Open Source, it’s Multiplatform!
Still DXX-Rebirth is no clone. Our Philosophy is to bring these games to the new millenium, keep ‘em alive – reborn. It’s our desire to maintain the original Feeling and Gameplay we all love so much.
In short: If you love these games and if you want to play them, you came to the right place.
Since I am getting overthrown by mails right now I am leaving a quick statement right here, right now:
At the moment, Downloads do not work. Version Control via bazaar doesn’t work either. That is because we were using Sourceforge for both and as of yesterday I closed our account there. Don’t worry, nothing is lost. I have backups of everything and I’ll upload the recent versions to this webspace. There won’t be a download archive until I find a better hosting place, tho. Version control will happen again, too, but that’ll take some days.
So right now, don’t worry.
EDIT: Downloads are working again.
If you have questions, feedback or critics on the downtime, please leave ‘em in the forum post.
