You can also play Super Smash Bros! That's what I do when I'm not busy. Other than that, you can also join some online Descent games XD there are several games each night in the retro mod of rebirth.

I never bought Kali, so I dunno how to do Descent multiplayer. >__<
I've only done singleplayer stuff, except with D3 and it's Vortex multiplayer client.

Or does DXX-Rebirth have free multiplayer someplace?

dxx-rebirth does have free multiplayer just over the internet, but you just need to catch the games at the right time to find a multiplayer game, or host your own and someone usually joins it. I made a co-op game a few days ago and had 3 people join, even tho one kept dc'ing like crazy.

If you don't care as much about playing the games exactly as they used to look and you want some shinier graphics, you can also try out D2X-XL. There are a few of us trying to expand the multiplayer pool. I play most nights, either on my own or with others. Just post in the Multiplayer Date Planner thread and see who's around. http://descent2.de/forum/viewforum.php?f=14

Most people playing D1/D2 multi right now are using Retro Mod (an add-on to dxx-rebirth). You can find instructions for getting set up at http://descentchampions.org/new_player.php

That also includes instructions for connecting to the Descent mumble server (sponsored by Descent Rangers, but you don't have to be a part of DR to be on the server.) During evenings in North America, there are typically 10-25 people active on the server. Not everyone wants to play all the time, but it's not terribly hard to find an opponent or three.

You can also arrange games on the Rebirth or XL forums, or on the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kalikahn/

That's sounds pretty cool for the interim until PG gets let loose on the masses, any plans in the works for future SolC/PG scheduling/server browser pages? - I emailed a few admins about my 'ut2k4: Frantic123 Descent Mod'(currently still on a back burner), and some were conducive to hosting after a decent amount of players were evolved.
Needless to say, the player base for PG should start out at a good clip - so it might be worth contacting a few more, to see what the general consensus is about hosting UDK servers & browser pages for PG.

There a slight mix up in what links to what! :|

Link in to the video soundtrack is no longer validImage
http://www.soundcloud.com/seamlessofficial/hyper-1

With 1100+ links so far, some might get a mixed opinion.

I wonder if there will be a central page we might get or report
bad links for all the SolC content that's been created so far? :idea:

Speaking of mixups:
I found a bit of SolC content on the steam site that needs some attention, so as not to give people & players the wrong impression.
Default Wordpress error page wrote:There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.
Need more help? 'We got it.'
You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.

I think there's a slight mix up on the steam Descent 1 & 2 pages about SolC! :|

http://steamcommunity.com/app/273580/di ... ideModal=1

Actually 'SolC - Proving Grounds' should be on it's own page for PG! Instead of redirecting from a page made for Descent, withstanding any flashbacks from you know who! :|

The video/image link for the 'Small Hulk' is bad @ "http://img.youtube.com/vi/glZ9ysFlOks%29/1.jpg"

But rather these links instead:

Mike, I realize the Internet never forgets anything and people might stumble across old links, but it's not our goal to keep all the old content alive. Rather, we'll nuke it and replace by new content. We need to do this to get rid of all Descent references and branding; this will in turn break many more links *on purpose*.

I'm confident many people will flock to the new website, FB and forum domains once the game is out and the old links will just phase out.

Point taken! ☺

Heh!, I wasn't aware there were nukes for that! :lol:

~ And, as you say - I'm sure the path being forged
will remain strong, well into the future by the same
crowd that's kept the Descent games alive so long!
It's gonna be awesome! :mrgreen:
