Overview:

Amiga 68k port of DXX-Rebirth v0.58.1.

DXX-Rebirth is an enhanced source port of the Descent for Windows, Mac OS, Linux
and AmigaOS.

This port is slow on real 68k hardware because it's much more demanding than the
original PC game (enhanced).


Requirements:

1) An RTG Amiga with a fast 68060 processor
2) 64 MB of FASTRAM
3) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
4) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
5) A copy of the PC game data files (DESCENT.HOG and DESCENT.PIG)


Features:

 * RTG SDL port
 * AHI Sound support
 * Joystick support
 * OGG music support (SDL Mixer)
 
 
Configuration Options:

The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
You must run D1X_Rebirth from the Workbench, running from the Shell is not
supported.
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
If you want to use the cockpit view in higher resolutions then you will need to
use the Mac data files.
AddOns will expand D1X-Rebirth and D2X-Rebirth by adding new or improved content
to the games (see links section). 
Just copy the downloaded DXA-file into the directory where the game content
resides. 
There is no additional configuration needed. To uninstall an AddOn, just delete
the DXA-file and you are done.
You must enable the SDL Mixer in the d1x.ini file if you want music playback.
You must enable the joystick in the d1x.ini file if you want to use a joystick.


Performance Considerations:

1) If you have a Blizzard/Apollo you should really be using BlizKick/RemApollo
to get most speed out of your Amiga.
2) Fast File System is actually not, use PFS3 instead.
3) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
slower.

 
Limitations:

1) No network or multiplayer support
2) No CDROM support
3) No window mode support


Version History:

0.58.1.001 - Initial release based on 0.58 of DXX-Rebirth
0.58.1.003 - Added SDL Mixer support, added support for DXA addons
0.58.1.004 - Recompiled for 060, minor performance increase.
