Not sure why. Could be that a lot D3 players got turned off by the slightly exotic flight mechanics/weaponry so it never got the hard-core passionate following necessary for getting it "of the ground" sad (Most non-Descent players see it just as another exotic FPS.) I like to play it but I have the hardest time getting people I know (ie. other D3 pilots...) to buy it or even join if they own it.

Oh, and another problem RV has is the Game engine -- it's based on XNA, not working well on common systems sad

Forgot another reason (bear w/ me, it's getting a bit late and I'm sick sad) -- altho the game allows for dedi servers, there's no tutorial on how to. As a result there are no permanent RV servers up, if you want to play you have to start your own server and hope for the best. (At least that was the situation a couple months ago, haven't checked in a while...)

Re: Welcome Thread

Hi Scott, Tweety Bird here.  (Not to be confused with Tweety, the female D3 player.)  And as Grendel implied, I would like to be a beta tester.

Hello!  Saw the video posted on descentbb.net and decided to register.

Also anyone having problems logging in/registering on descentbb.net (or descentbb.com) let me know in a PM or email and I should be able to fix most problems.

Re: Welcome Thread

Hello smile

another Descent (3) Player here, willing to join the Beta-Test-Team. The VEX Team had it's focus on D3 Team Games, like CTF and Entropy. From what I saw on the Gameplay Video, this is the kind of game we were waiting for!

Re: Welcome Thread

Hello all,
No idea how I managed to miss this game for so long, just learned about it last friday and was busy since. It looks very promising!

While there isn't the same lack of 6DOF games now that we had a few years ago, this is the first one I know of with descent like multiplayer gameplay (judging from the videos, can't wait to try it).
