LinuxTo run DXX Retro on GNU/Linux, you'll need to build executables from the source code. You can download the source code of any DXX Retro version from the Releases page on GitHub. Once you've downloaded a version and extracted it, you can find instructions for building executables in the INSTALL.txt files (there's one in the d1 directory and one in the d2 directory).
Why Different Versions?The Descent 1 and 2 Retro 1.4.x builds contains a number of enhancements, but have team game bugs. For team games, we have to use the 1.3 builds.
The Descent 2 Retro 1.4.x build is not available for Mac. So, when Mac users play, we have to use the 1.3 builds.
