I can't uninstall the game,
When i try to put the detail level, i still can't start the game no matter what.
My Computer should be able to play the game because, its fast and its in high speed which meant, when i tried to start the game, every time, the Cpu Speed was Unknown and i set up every single thing.
This is happening only on Descent 3 on my full version, even on the demo it won't work

Yes, you need the 1.4 patch. Check the multiplayer forum for the links

The Only Problems are how to uninstall it which isn't much of a problem and
the CPU Speed which makes of the whole problem of doing this, making me unable to access the game and play it

CPU Speed: Unknown
And the detail level is already set

I'M the guest that made the post, i just wanted to register and well i did,

Anyways, it shows that the Detail Level Setting Not Configured and I already did, no mistake, i just clicked "OK" and well, in my opinion, the problem is the CPU Speed shows itself Unknown... It sounds very strange, maybe a file is missing or something? because that sounds like it Sad Crying or Very sad

I even reinstalled the game and it still didn't work

i really need help

I doubt that's a problem. If I click Detect on my system I get the same thing -- unknown speed. Just let it detect it once and start the game. Set your detail level from w/in the game.

"Unknown Speed" is not a problem. It happens because D3 was made long before modern processors were developed. The game will run fine, it doesn't matter.

Maybe your registry isn't being set correctly, anyone have a reg file of the registry entries?

Try switching to OpenGL in the video tab.

Have you run the "auto-detect" on the video and audio tabs? You have to do that, as well.

I already did auto-detect, I'm not sure if OpenGL will work,
Testiculese, what did you mean by the registry?

There is some idea that i think that might be good,
Descent 3 isn't showing in the Add/Remove Programs and it doesn't have a Uninstall file, all the Descent 3 files are there.

Adding a program in the add\remove program button might not work, I'll just save that idea for later just incase.

Sounds like you copied the game instead of installing it. Delete everything and reinstall using the CDs..

Do you have administrator rights on that PC ?

After going through the setup (video, sound, detail etc.), open a command shell, switch to c:\games\descent3 and execute

MAIN.EXE -launched -nointro

Go through the games configuration and quit. Try the launcher again.
