D2X-XL, Enhanced port of Descent 2.Updated by Editors on Friday, May 3, 2013.
D2X is an enhanced port of Descent 2 to OpenGL. Descent 2 is a pretty old game, and further development has slowed down; so there are a few issues - some still stemming from the original Descent 2 - that have never been adressed or solved in D2X. Although D2X-XL contains a lot of enhancements and new features, it is still fully backwards compatible to every other Descent 2 version and particularly to D2_Win98 and d2_3dfx. As many fixes simply restore features of the original Descent 2 that were missing in D2X, it is even closer to them than D2X itself.
In multiplayer games, all game-relevant features of D2X-XL are completely turned off if the game host does not use D2X-XL. If the game host uses D2X-XL, he has full control over these features and can turn them on or off at his free disposal.
