PSX Anarchy from Descent 1 PSX?
« on: March 21, 2012, 01:27:59 PM »
I saw that the levels from Descent Maximum's SP campaign and its unique anarchy levels have been ported to PC, but that's old news.  I'm wanting to know if anyone has done so for PSX Anarchy, which are the 1v1 levels from Descent 1 PSX.

And I'm also curious as to how this was done.

Umm... yeah, they're in the archive with the singleplayer mission for most of the Descent Maximum levels downloads (except, I think the DMDB one).
I played them on 3-player LAN once and they actually play really well.  It's a shame no one ever hosts them online.

Enzo's not talking about Maximum, you silly fox! :)  He's talking about Descent 1 for PSX

Well, but if they got Descent Maximum levels ported, I'd imagine it'd just be a hop, skip, and a jump to do D1, so I'd be surprised if someone hasn't done it yet.

If anyone is wanting to undertake the project, I have D1-PSX, so I should be able to get the files.

...I don't recall there being many 1v1 levels, though.  Seems like there were only a few.

--------

On an unrelated note, D1-PSX ran horribly (it would drop to 3-4fps in heavy action).  I can't imagine 1v1 would have been that much fun, especially because you would have had to set up two TVs and two Playstations in the same room.  :P

I too have a legit copy of D1 PSX.  It seems I can't just load up the PSX version's DESCENT.HOG into hamm though.

I've heard the format is slightly different.  The guy who extracted the Descent Maximum hog (he's called DescentMax :P) wrote some utility to convert it (or something like that).  I'm not sure where to find him except maybe on the Rebirth forums.
Dan Wentz might be another person to ask because I think he made an "official" port of Descent Maximum to PC D2 after DescentMax released the first one (or I'm confused and he just made DescentMax's port official).  Either way he was the lead level designer on Descent Maximum so he might know something helpful; and he is reachable -- heck he's even here (as Vertigo1).

I would imagine Diedel might know how to help you too, seeing that all his work with D2X-XL would make him well versed with both D1's and D2's engines, or he'd at least know where to start.

If I had the data, I could possibly take a quick look at trying to reverse-engineer the format.

I don't have the data though, so that is a problem.

"Hey, Enzo or Foil, are you willing to commit copyright infringement and send me the game data files so I can try to reverse engineer them?"

:P

On a more serious note, Enzo or Foil, can I have the datafiles to try to look into reverse engineering their formats?

If Enzo doesn't beat me to it, I'll get you the files this weekend when I'm at home and I get the chance.

The Descent Maximum mission has been converted to Descent for PC. I am hosting it on my server.

I think we're talking about the Anarchy levels from Descent 1 for PSX.
Apparently they're not the same as the ones from regular D1... ???
