Ok I've just uploaded this to AmiNet.

I couldn't get it to run as fast as I was aiming for. The render pipeline in Descent Rebirth is not built to run quickly on low end systems, I've done some improvements but I think it would take me ages to get it running at a good speed so I'm calling it a day with this port.

I've also uploaded my full source code to AmiNet so maybe someone else can make it faster.

This port is now an example of how to use my AGA SDL which has been the real winner here

I was always a bit disappointed with the speed of this port so I've just released an update to AmiNet (V0.57.3.003).

New features:
  • Replaced SDL sound engine with an ASM 16 Channel Mixer (borrowed from AmiWolf)
  • Updated the render loop
  • Added basic RTG support
  • Fixed lots of little bugs

It's now a lot nicer to play on my 060 and also seems less buggy than before (touch wood).....it's still not exactly fast though

I'll try and do a upload a video when I get the chance.

Hi Nova,

i have tried it with Descebt 1 Files but after the briefing when you see the info about the class1 drone, the game crashes every time.
Any knowledge about this problem?

Strange it should work ok, does it create a file called 'ERROR.TXT' in the game folder?

To be honest, I wouldn't bother to play this port yet because it's still a little slow. I'll try and find the time to tune it up a bit more one of these days

No idea if this will net me any help being an old thread, but thought i'd ask .... did you work out how to stop it doing that as i get the same issue.

A4000/060
Loads up, go through a briefing, then crashes

Maybe you can recall how you got it working.. if you did get it working?

Thanks.

This was never one of my best ports but it should at least run

Have you tried skipping the briefing?

Are you using the shareware or full game files? It's possible that it only works properly with the full game data files (I never tried it with the shareware data)

This was the trick - when clicking left mouse, it would skip that page of dialogue and start a new one, so skipping to me meant pressing the left button a dozen times This time .. i loaded up and pressed ESC, and it went into the game, both RTG worked on a VA2000 and AGA ... both about the same speed but perfectly playable, and RTG looked a little nicer.

Ended up trying both, though in the first level they both looked the same, but in the end, doesn't seem to be the issue.... i might see about grabbing some other missions.

Thankyou Nova - for still answering after a couple of years and still had the correct answer (though a fix for the crash after briefing possible?)
