OpenGL! - finally its plays nice & smooth!
Includes libSDL (1.2.9)
iTunes audio support!
Create an iTunes playlist called D2X and play your music there.
D2X will then randomly play a song
Settings are now saved inside /User/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/D2X

That is THE question, and just the person I expected to ask it. I want Descent 3 for X!
Anyone know where I can buy Descent 2 to hold me over until D3 gets X ported?
I serve too many masters.

Thing is, last I checked, this port of D2 works better with the PC version.  Apparently the Mac version movies don't work, though the game itself should be OK.

Oh D3 for X would rock, if I wasn't making my own PC, that would be the game I would get.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
