DXX-Rebirth is a source port of the Descent and Descent 2 engines
for Windows, Mac OS, Linux (most *NIX systems), offering OpenGL
graphics and effects, advanced multiplayer, many improvements and
new features.
Descent and Descent 2 are pretty old games so you usually run into
problems running it on more recent hardware and operating systems.
DXX-Rebirth will also take care about this for you.

dxx-rebirth requires the original game files from Descent I and/or
Descent II to work properly.  These can come from an original CD or from
If using the GOG.com version of Descent I, you must extract the files
from setup_descent_1.4a_(16596).exe using the innoextract package.
You can install it with "pkg install innoextract" or 
"portmaster archivers/innoextract".
The files will be in a directory named app. You must move the contents
of this directory to a directory named ~/.d1x-rebirth/Data
The eaisest way to do this is to follow these steps:
$ mkdir -p ~/.d1x-rebirth/Data
$ cp -R app/* ~/.d1x-rebirth/Data
You can then delete everything extracted from the exe.
If you own the GOG.com version of Descent II, follow the above steps
with the setup_descent_2_1.1_(16596).exe file and using
~/.d2x-rebirth/Data as the directory name.
