News Comments > Descent Underground Delayed; Resumes Testing; Changes Name?
21. Re: Descent Underground Delayed; Resumes Testing; Changes Name? Oct 6, 2018, 17:18 Overmann
 
The problem with Underground was that the movement felt terrible, the guns weren't satisfying to fire, the levels were pretty basic and the AI was completely stupid. On top of that the mining was dumb, the different ship class seemed very unDescent like and whole story concept sounded boring.

Which brings up something else, idk if it was ever confirmed or not but is sounded like you'd just be fighting other "drones" not different types of bots.

Overload nailed all of these things from it's first demo.

I suppose a lot can change in a year, but on the other hand Underground started first. And when Overload came out, Underground still played terribly.

Also games that have the same name as the original always irked me. Need for Speed, Doom, Etc.. Can't you come up with something new?

Hopefully we'll get a GOG release today as well.

From the dev: "Thanks for your patience with GOG. We ran into an issue with launching, and are having trouble resolving it since there is a holiday there. We hoped to have a more definite launch time to tell you, but we are still unsure. Hoping tomorrow, but can't promise as of yet. Sorry for the inconvenience."

The world didn't need their "unannounced MMO"...
I'm pretty sure they had the rights to Total Annihilation. I really hope it never gets turned into an MMO.

Unless I am blind I see no mention there for Myst 1, Myst 2 and Riven..... I am asking because I have the (DVD) in my drive, it's a German anniversary edition by Cyan games and it got no loose files, it got all 3 Myst games and Riven on a DVD with installers as cab/exe combo and autostart launcher with menu to install things etc.

This version was fixed to run in Windows XP natively btw. For Myst 1 that was even back then extremely wonky (256 colors only)

I don't know about the German version, but I've got the US anniversary edition and it has all the files required on it.

You can find which files are required from the disc here:
Myst
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafiles#Myst

Riven
http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Datafiles#Riven:_The_Sequel_to_Myst

BTW Riven is Myst 2

Mhh, then I seem to be out of luck ;/ Honestly can't remember where I got this disc from though, I think from some polish store or something, does look very pretty ^^. Maybe a black market copy because it sure doesn't say anniversary, it says compilation....? Wouldn't that be something, either way can't do anything, all I got is 3 setup.exe and 3 cabs, and the various IS files with the old install shield icon and a white exe (non supported 16bit). I only faintly remember there being a launcher and it fixing the horrendous load times for Myst 1 which was why I kept the thing around.

I guess I need to google fu a old cab unpacker... sigh. But once I figure this out your links will be very helpful, thanks for that.

Honestly how the heavens did you find that on that site though? I must be failing at navigating websites today because I couldn't find this list and I actually looked. Oh well, I blame my old age

Ps.: In German it's Myst 2: Riven, so you guys confused me But I think that's the same thing they did with the first Anno game, which confuses me to this day as I own them on uPlay and physical, so they have 2 different names and not even saves sync up. Bought this compilation on a poland trip and near the border they always sold games cheap (that was before the )

Usually when I go to look up the files required for ScummVM I just google (game name/ScummVM/Datafiles). It's a lot easier then finding it through the site.

Best of luck with the cab unpacker!

Also if you get to Myst 3, they've updated it to work widescreen. I think it really adds to the experience.

Actually thanks to ResidualVM, Exile works great on modern systems

Same goes for Myst and Riven in ScummVM
https://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/DEV/riven/

They work like a charm.

These were the days right before 3D Acceleration, so devs had to do some fancy coding to get ahead with what they had.
=-Rigs-=

Your joking right? IGI came out in 2000 and it required a 3D Accelerator to play.

There where plenty of real time 3d games before 2000 that required hardware rendering.

Why all the DF hate?
BECAUSE!!!!

DF fucked up with Spacebase-DF9. I was a backer and i will never give them a cent in advance. Not because the game failed (as a backer, i have to accept this risk), but because they werent upfront with the financial situation. They just closed doors. Bang!

Spacebase-DF9 was an early access game on Steam. You just bought into an alpha, its not the same thing as being a backer.

Since when is King's Quest an RPG?
7 out of 8 are classic adventure games.

Has a total annihilation vibe to it I guess, looks more casual though with 10 - 15 minute games.

Looks more like Metal Fatigue to me.

You could always use ResidualVM to play Grim

And some fans are working on Grim Fandango Deluxe
There goals are to:
1. Improve texture quality.
2. Remodel the characters.
