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 very 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)
6) Music packs for music playback (see links section below)
7) CAMD library installed and configured for native MIDI playback (see links
   section below)


Features:

 * RTG SDL port
 * AHI Sound support
 * Joystick support
 * OGG/WAV/MIDI music support (SDL Mixer)
 * Window mode support
 
 
Configuration Options:

The tooltype 'closewb' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
When running from the Shell you must specify a stack of at least 300,000.
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 by adding new or improved content (see links
section). 
Just copy the downloaded DXA-file into the directory where the game content
resides. 
To uninstall an AddOn, just delete the DXA-file and you are done.
I have created and included a custom DXA-file for MIDI playback.
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 you should really be using BlizKick, Apollo users
   should be using RemApollo
2) Fast File System is actually really slow, use PFS3 instead
3) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
   slower
4) Playing OGG compressed music on a real Amiga will be very slow, try using
   WAV files instead

 
Limitations:

1) No network or multiplayer support
2) No CDROM 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.
0.58.1.006 - Added window mode support and native MIDI support (CAMD).
