DXX-Rebirth v0.58 released!
July 27, 2013

Hey folks! Today DXX-Rebirth v0.58 stood in front of my door and asked where I’ve been for so long. So we had a drink or two and decided it’s time to bring the new release out today. And here it is. This release is mainly fixes and improves some things but also holds a few new features.

Here are the most important changes:

    Several fixes and improvements for Multiplayer – especially Coop savestates
    Sensitivity/Ramping sliders for keyboard input
    More efficient positional data for Multiplayer, making ship positions more accurate and require less traffic (Thanks to v66r)
    New file extension for AddOns (.dxa)
    Key combination ALT+ENTER will not work ingame anymore to not interrupt player input
    Command-line option to disable mouse cursor without disabling the mouse altogether
    Support for Raspberry Pi by derhass
    HUD style “no HUD”
    Fixes for lighting code which wasn’t updating correctly all the time
    Improvement for transparency effects that won’t make certain sprites disappear in front of bright surfaces
    Support for hmp tempo setting (Thanks to Yarn)
    Improvements and fixes for Shareware/Demo data
    Improvements for firing mechanism, keeping fire rate accurate at all FPS
    More fixes and improvements

As stated above, the filename extension for AddOns changed. You either need to re-download your AddOns or simply rename them from .zip to .dxa.

Also please note that right now there is not a Mac OS X release, yet. This will be released in a few days.

Just wanted to post thanks a lot for still maintaining this!
It's so cool to play the favourite game of my youth on modern hardware.
