Descent 3 1.4eu works almost flawless in Wine. You have to use a nocd
crack to get around the copy protection. It's a bit hard to find - aMule is
your friend here.
You have to select OpenGL in the setup to run the game!

Everything appears to. Ignore my last post, I didn't update the game and thats why nothing worked.
When I go to the video tab in the game's startup settings, it does crash but when I tell wine to close, it suddenly works. Anyways, I'd recommend you select OpenGL. When I tried DX, almost every texture was black. GL seems to perform rather well too.
What does not
Everything works fine this time.
What was not tested
Multiplayer, but I doubt anybody plays that these days anyway.
