Got a wierd problem. My friend can run the same install with no problems.

I have a 2.2GHz dual core and Geforce 8600M GT

I run descent3.exe and so the initail setup then,
when I run, from the main menu, New Game, Demo or Multiplayer its says Loading in the lower left corner and then freezes and the intro music stops.

Any ideas?

Fiqured it out. If anyone else has this problem, descent must go into a shorter directory name than than Desktop path, lol. Back in the day windows created directory names with ~1 at the end with longer directory names. I would suspect that when the coders wrote the software they did not assign the directory variable any larger than a float or something so it could not find the game files for new game, demo, or multiplayer...

And here you were saying in chatthat you installed it C:\Games\Descent3 (which is the Default)

but in reality you installed it
in C:\Documents and Settings\CmdrPinksocks\Desktop\Games\Descent3

That's what you get for a torrent
