The Descent 3 Demo 1.1.1 Patch and Auto-Update are now available for downloading. Use the Auto-Update feature found in the launcher to automatically update you to version 1.1.1 or download the self-extracting file. This version fixes the same problems as v1.1 with the addition of the following:
  • Mouse problems with high framerate machines.
  • Multiplayer crashes with "Buffer Overflow".
  • Problems with ATI cards.
  • Crashes reading some pilot files from previous versions.

This patch will update both 1.0 and 1.1 versions to 1.1.1. There is no reason to update to 1.1 first. If you do experience problems with updating your 1.0 or 1.1 version to 1.1.1 please report all relevant system and error information to d3bugs@outrage.com .

Things fixed from version 1.0 (also addressed in the 1.1 patch):

  • Fixed occasional crash in DSOUND.DLL.

  • Fixed several problems under Direct3D.
  • Fixed a problem with PXO stats not always being updated when the timer or kill limit was met in a game.
  • Removed the force feedback checkbox from the setup program, since the demo does not support force-feedback joysticks.
  • The gamma control now works under OpenGL.
  • Made the gamma slider work under Glide even when the Glide gamma environment variable was set.
  • Fixed the dot character that looked like a comma.
  • The joystick & mouse are now polled every frame, resulting in smoother control.
  • Fixed a phantom napalm spew created when someone was firing the napalm cannon when the level ended.
