Download the full version of Descent 3 - Instructions step 2

If you have a legal copy or license of Descent 3 already, you can jump over this step. Go directly to step 3 of the instructions (requires registration).

If you don't have a copy or licence of Descent 3 and Descent 3 Mercenary yet, it is now time to obtain one.

Here's an incomplete list of sources from where you can obtain Descent 3 licenses:

  • From Good Old Games. They offer a downloadable version of Descent 3 + Mercenary (Descent 3 + Expansion) for quite a decent price. descent3plusexpansionfromgogYou don't need to download and install the file. Better don't download and install it. Pay for the software and leave it on GOG's server. If you go for Good Old Games' version of Descent 3, and if you installed that version on your computer already, bear in mind that you may have to uninstall it again before you install the Descent 3 version from Dateiliste. You can safely install our Descent 3 into another directory on your computer, then copy all your pilot files, logos, taunts, etc over to the new folder. Go to How to install the Descent 3 from Dateiliste over a version from GOG (requires registration) to find out more on how to install our version of the game over an already installed version from Good Old Games. When we checked last time, GOG offered Descent 3 + Mercenary (Descent 3 + Expansion) for $ 5.99. Considering that no shipping costs are required (because it's a download), this seems quite competitive.
  • If you look on Amazon and eBay, you may find some good bargains. Just remember that you shouldn't pay more than around 10 Euros for Descent 3 plus Descent 3 Mercenary or Descent 3 + Expansion. Some shops still charge up to USD 30 or even more for the game. If you go for a boxed Descent 3, there's usually shipping costs involved, in particular when you order from the other side of the world. However, boxes are nice collector's items, and many people like to have something to look at and to carry around.
  • Where else can you buy a more or less unlimited number of Descent 3 + Mercenary licenses or CDs? Please feel free to drop me a line when you find any other interesting sources. We will then list them here.

 

Do not install your purchased version of Descent 3. Keep it in a safe place and carry on to step 3 of the instructions (requires registration).

It's not an issue. The question is covered in the FAQs.

www.dateiliste.com/descent-3/32-download...f-descent-3-faq.html

Can I install your Descent 3 version over an existing Descent 3 installation?

Sure, but bear in mind that the installer does not try to find an existing version of the game. You can also have two or even more Descent 3s installed on the same computer, although this is not recommended.

If you installed Descent 3 off the original CDs, select its installation directory during the installation of our package manually and ignore the warning that this folder already exists. By default, the original version of Descent 3 would like to be installed in "C:\Games\Descent3", while our installer suggests "C:\Program files\Descent3". If you change this to "C:\Games\Descent3" (you will be asked for that folder during the installation), you don't need a second copy. The version you can download from here will then make the changes to the already existing copy and install all mods, additions, missions, programs, and files in there. You will also notice many additional shortcuts and links to online resources after the installation.

Hope this helps.

Huh?

Read our Privacy statement (www.dateiliste.com/privacy-statement.html).

but as for obtaining a "free" version of D3, its all smoke and mirrors.
As mentioned in the FAQ, Descent 3 is copyrighted software. We don't have a "free" version.

I thought it was pretty obvious that they didn't hand out the licensed software... just the easy install files. Spend the $15 - it's worth it.
