Mac Info

Mac D3 1.4.1 patch can be found here at my site. I have found Ircle to be a good Mac IRC app, easy to config. I use it in OSX, I believe there is a OS9 ver as well.

Mac users should also see an important fix for multiplayer gaming.

Game browsers

Vortex available at: http://www.slyclan.de/ (includes automatic level download feature)

I'd like to add my two cents here:

To find games and chat: TRY VORTEX.
www.slyclan.de

If you're new to the game, or coming back after a long absence, I strongly recommend you use Vortex. It is very similar to the old Gate or gl-max programs in function, and has built-in chat and game browser. Best of all if you don't have the level, it doesn't attempt to launch you into a game where you can't play, unlike some of the other options. Instead, Vortex highlights the level in red if you don't have it, and you have the option to attempt to auto-download the level, or you can manually try to find it on one of the level archive sites (www.planetdescent.com has most everything you may need, so go there if auto-download isn't working for any level).

Once you get your feet on the ground in the community, you may want to explore some of the more fully-featured IRC clients, and try different methods of game browsing. I myself use MIRC with the Invision script for Descent 3 chat, but I still use Vortex to find games.

Good Luck, I'll see YOU in the mines. Wink
