Quote

Hello everyone. Today, I've ported a new game - d1x-rebirth
D1X-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent Engine and provides classical Gameplay combined with a bunch of improvements and new features.

The game is the same on the Dingoo.

Installation (read HOWTO_INSTALL):
1) Copy ".d1x-rebirth" dir to "/local/home"
2) Copy "d1x-rebirth" dir to your favourite location
3) Copy the ORIGINAL DATA FILES to "[your_location]/d1x-rebirth/Data"
4) Run "d1x-rebirth.dge"

Controls:
UP              - pitch forward
DOWN            - pitch backward
LEFT            - turn left
RIGHT           - turn right
A               - fire primary weapon
X               - fire secondary weapon
B               - slide on
Y               - bank on
L               - reverse
R               - accelerate
START           - cycle primary weapon
SELECT          - cycle secondary weapon
POWER          - map

START + R       - options menu
SELECT + L      - save menu
SELECT + R      - load menu
START + SELECT  - exit

All the controls are customizable in the menu.

Bugs:
* "whistle" instrument from the midi soundtrack in level 2 produces a high pitched sound. This is believed to be a timidity bug and is not d1x related:
  (http://welltemperedstudio.wordpress.com/2007/12/29/timidity-problems-solved/)
  It is recommended to disable music for this level.
* Can't manually assign SELECT to any key mapping

Tomorrow I'll look into d2x-rebirth, maybe I can get it to work as well. Stay tuned

Edit: Forgot to mention, this game is fully playable on the network. If you happen to use usb networking, that is
