Descent 3 - Getting started with Descent 3
Written by roncli   
Tuesday, 30 June 2015 16:53

(Originally written in 2002 for PlanetDescent.)

Spaceorbs, Sidewinders, Precision Pros, Thrustmasters, Cyborgs. These are some of the more advanced - and in some cases more expensive - controllers out on the market. For Descent, total 3D control is key to success. If you want to survive, you need to be able to move in any direction on the turn of a dime.

D3Server3 version released E-mail

Almost exactly 5 months after the last release of D3Server3 a new version is available again. Lots of bugfixes have made it into that release, and of course quite a bunch of new features.



The most obvious change is probably that PXO and the chat stuff has disappeared from the main window. It's been replaced by some more useful information regarding the tool's CPU usage as well as the same for dedicated servers.

Descent 3 - Descent 3 dedicated server tool for Windows
Written by Thomas

Dedicated Descent 3 servers can be configured to produce statistics data. This means that ".stats" files are written into the "Descent3\netgames" folder when a level ends or when a player disconnects.

The files are plain text files with some information about the time in game, kills, goals, suicides, etc. for each player.

To start uploading .stats files with D3Server3 you'll only need an FTP account at Descent 3 and D3Server3 can then handle the rest.

D3Server3 is looking for a new icon and maybe some images too E-mail

D3Server3's current icon is probably a bit outdated. Its design might be the cause for debate, but its resolution certainly doesn't value current Windows desktops.

However, I would like to release the new version of D3Server3 with some minor changes to its looks. Cool


If you're good at icon/image creation, if you got some spare time, and if you feel you're in the mood of doing something for the eyes of the Descent 3 server hosting community, please step forward now. Smile

Descent 3 - Vortex
Written by Thomas   
Thursday, 28 August 2014 12:46

On 2014-07-25 at around 18:19 UTC Gamespy has finally shut down their game tracking services. That's when Vortex stopped displaying Descent 3 servers that didn't announce themselves to the game tracker.


There's two solutions: Either edit the Windows hosts file or get a patched version of Vortex.

Since there's obviously some ongoing interest in how many people are still playing Descent 3 we decided to publish some figures taken from Dateiliste.

Our Descent 3 installer has been relatively successful for more than 5 years now, and maybe the amount of download requests shed some light on this ancient game's popularity.

For almost 3 weeks I kept getting this error message when starting some applications on my Windows 8 computer:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.

This wasn't a big deal as the majority of programs worked fine. However, one application that didn't work had bothered me quite a lot. I was not able to run my D3Server3 anymore.
