D2X-XL is an OpenGL-port of Descent II. Supported platforms are Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

Fixed: Thruster flames often were rendered at a wrong angle or not at all
Improved: Displaying a lot of different particle effects will not slow down the game as much as it did before
Fixed: When changing the ship type in-game, the ship subsequently exploded again and again until the game was over
Fixed: The renderer was messed and the program could crash when hires textures were disabled
Changed: Particles emitted in a skybox segment will now disappear when leaving the segment their originating from (this allows better control of where effects and snow are visible)
Fixed: Debris sometimes blocked the player´s sight
Improved: Debris is handled better
