Amazing... after three years of inactivity, there are two new posts at Descent3.com. The last one stating that work on the 1.5 patch has resumed!
WORK ON THE DESCENT 3 1.5 PATCH RESUMES After being on hiatus for several years, work on the Descent 3 1.5 patch has resumed. The 1.5 patch aims to fix many of the lingering bugs in Descent 3 including operating system cross-compatibility issues that have cropped up in multiplayer. It should also resolve some problems with installing and running Descent 3 on modern operating systems running modern hardware. Click here for a video preview of the 1.5 patch that features Descent 3 multiplayer running on Mac OSX, Ubuntu Linux and Windows. More to come!
Cool! This is amazing news for Descent 3 fans!
