DXX-Rebirth is the Remake of the two DESCENT ports D1X and D2X

DXX-Rebirth is the Remake of the two DESCENT ports D1X and D2X

Here are some key features of "DXX-Rebirth":

Compared to the original games, DXX-Rebirth provides a large set of improvements to enrich your gaming experience.

Here is a small and far-from-complete list of the most important features these Source Port provides:

Plays Descent and Descent 2 and all their AddOns and third-party levels.
DXX-Rebirth runs on your favourite Operating System. We officially support Linux (and other *NIX), Mac OS (9/X) and Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7). Still the code can be compiled on many other systems as well.

OpenGL provides a fast and smooth rendering – even on low-end systems. Optionally you can toggle several effects like Transparency, Texture Filtering, FSAA, etc.
Thanks to SDL, a wide palette of Joysticks are supported. Also you can use more Joysticks, buttons and axes than you can ever operate in your state of evolution.
If you prefer steering your Pyro with a mouse, you will not have the problem that the movement becomes slow in high game speed.
Joystick, Keyboard and Mouse can be used simultaneously.
The games can display all resolutions and aspects supported by your Monitor, including an option for VSync.
Besides MIDI and CD-Audio (Redbook), you can play your own custom Music from your Harddrive or a separate AddOns.
Both games can utilize special AddOn packs to replace or expand the original game content.
Multiplayer via UDP protocol provides a fast and easy-to-use LAN and Online action. This includes reliable communication causing less glitches due to lost packages.
Multiplayer via IPX protocol lets you play against players still using the MS-DOS version of the game.
The ingame Demo-recording system has been improved. Demos are less glitchy and smaller while still still being backwards-compatible to earlier versions of the games.
Higher game speed will not cause glitches such as unacceptable fast homing projectiles, incredible high damage caused by several collisions or Fusion cannon, etc.
Player files, Savegames, Demos and Missions from DOS-Versions of the games can freely be used in DXX-Rebirth and vice versa.
Even more …
