Game Issues

  • With Cedega 4.3.1, game may crash after cutscenes. This does not occur in 3.3.2-1. The crashes may be related to kernel version, (2.6 seems to work better than 2.4) but if Descent 3 crashes after cutscenes, just use 3.3.2-1.
  • My "SoldOut" copy has a copyprotection wich works only when winver is set to wink2.
  • Kernel 2.6 users may need to turn off Accelerated Interprocess Communicaton (or else game is little bit choppy).
  • In gameplay I noticed few flickering textures.
  • Tels: The demo works only when selecting "Direct3D HAL" and Cedega v3.3.2 (otherwise only a black screen appears). It still has quite some lighting corruptions, plus outside areas are yellow without textures, though.
  • In the setup menu, set the video device to OpenGL. (Click on detect available rendering devices, and make sure OpenGL is checked.) Direct3D does not work.

Patch Issues

  • Patch v1.4 takes several hours to install. It does work, though.
  • The auto-patch option in the launcher menu does not work, use the patch URLs above.
