D2X-XL is an enhanced version of D2X, the OpenGL modification of the classic shooter game Descent 2. D2X-XL is available for Mac OS X, Linux, and MS Windows. It is well documented and maintained.
Although D2X-XL contains a lot of enhancements and new features, it is still fully backwards compatible to every other Descent 2 version. As many fixes restore features of the original Descent 2 that were missing in D2X (like availability of all cockpit views, or working mouse steering), it is even closer to them than D2X itself.
If you want to support my efforts (e.g. by funding a Macintosh) computer, you can do so by going to my web site and donating. :)
* Fixed: This time, D2X-XL simply removed all robot makers from a level when loading it ... ;-)

One of my favorite old games now ported to Mac! THis program works great but you must make sure you follow the included instructions carefully in order for it to work correctly. You must already have a full copy of Descent to play this.

It's great to be able to play an old favorite under OSX. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating was the Calibrate Joystick function didn't work with my Gravis GamePad Pro - so I couldn't use to play the game.
