DXX-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent and Descent 2 Engines for Windows,
Mac OS, Linux (most *NIX systems), offering OpenGL graphics and effects,
advanced Multiplayer, many improvements and new features.

Descent and Descent 2 are pretty old games so you usually run into problems
running it on more recent Hardware and Operating Systems. DXX-Rebirth will also
take care about this for you.

It's Open Source, it's Multiplatform!

Still DXX-Rebirth is no clone. The Philosophy is to bring these games to the new
millenium, keep ‘em alive – reborn. It’s our desire to
maintain the original Feeling and Gameplay we all love so much.


Compared to the original games, DXX-Rebirth provides a large set of improvements
to enrich your gaming experience.

Here is a small and far-from-complete list of the most important features these
Source Port provides:

Plays Descent and all their AddOns and third-party levels.
DXX-Rebirth runs on your favourite Operating System. We officially support Linux
(and other *NIX), Mac OS (9/X) and Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7). Still the code
can be compiled on many other systems as well.OpenGL effects comparison (click

OpenGL provides a fast and smooth rendering – even on low-end systems.
Optionally you can enable several effects like Transparency, Colored lighting,
Texture Filtering, FSAA, etc.
Thanks to SDL, a wide palette of Joysticks are supported. Also you can use more
Joysticks, buttons and axes than you can ever operate in your state of
If you prefer steering your Pyro with a mouse, you will not have the problem
that the movement becomes slow in high game speed.
Joystick, Keyboard and Mouse can be used simultaneously.
The games can display all resolutions and aspects supported by your Monitor,
including an option for VSync.
Besides MIDI and CD-Audio (Redbook), you can play your own custom Music from
your Harddrive or a separate AddOn.
Both games can utilize special AddOn packs to replace or expand the original
game content.
Multiplayer via UDP protocol provides a fast and easy-to-use LAN and Online
action. This includes reliable communication causing less glitches due to lost
Multiplayer via IPX protocol lets you play against players still using the
MS-DOS version of the game.
The ingame Demo-recording system has been improved. Demos are less glitchy and
smaller while still still being backwards-compatible to earlier versions of the
Higher game speed will not cause glitches such as unacceptable fast homing
projectiles, incredible high damage caused by several collisions or Fusion
cannon, etc.
Player files, Savegames, Demos and Missions from DOS-Versions of the games can
freely be used in DXX-Rebirth and vice versa.
Even more …
