The windows version of the fantastic FPS 3D Shooter!
Use standard multi-CD installation procedure:
Descent 3 downloads, including 1.4 patch
Keyboard controls work excellent. Networking runs well with Windows Machine.
What does not
Direct3D rendering is a bit off. OpenGL rendering is unplayable (most likely a bug in D3's OpenGL Implementation). Weapon effects don't seem to work. Progress bars aren't being displayed.
What was not tested
using an older nVidia RIVA TNT2 Model 64 graphics card. Tried using zeckensack's Glide wrapper, but it wouldn't work. Glide seems to be the most accurate rendering engine (from a Windows machine test standpoint.)
