If you CAN'T see games...

PXO is no longer working. We now use irc.gamesurge.net to chat. You can use any standard IRC chat client to join irc.gamesurge.net (#descent3 or #descent3rookie), or a program like Vortex, that has the IRC client pre configured for Descent 3 chat. To view the on-line games, You can visit the Descent Game Tracker, KQuery, or the combination Chat Game Tracker Vortex.


Do you have the 1.4 Patch?

If you have the Descent 3 DEMO version, you are only going to be able to play against other's that also have the DEMO version. If you have the FULL version, you need to upgrade to Ver V1.4

 

Look in the lower right corner of your screen when the "PILOTS" menu is showing, and look for your version. If its not 1.4, you need to download either the D3_US_1.4_Patch  or the patch from the files page at Planet Descent. It seems that some people are finding that the Australian patch works better than the US Patch. If you did a standard install, go to C:\Games\Descent3 and make a backup of your extra13.hog and main.exe files. Now run the patch file. If things don't work, you can always put the two files back that you backed up.

Macintosh users can get the following patch: descentmac1.x-1.4.1.sea.bin (Thank you Fusion)

After you have installed the patch, look in the lower right corner of your screen when the "PILOTS" menu is showing, and look for your version. If its not 1.4, it did not install correctly (it happens).

note: I can not be held responsible if the patch does not work, or your D3 gets messed up. There are too many variables (OS, D3 games, language, previous patches, gravitational pull on the earth from the moon) for me to guarantee anything. My best suggestion, is to completely backup your entire Descent3 directory before making any changes to your game.


These two files are available for download from this site. Use them at your own risk.
