During the 24 hour kickstater it was mentioned an update was coming for Descent 3 that would allow it to run on modern PCs without so many issues. Possibility it was mostly an update to stability and maybe controller support, not sure.
But it was exciting news.
Making this thread as a friendly reminder/request for an update on this when the time is appropriate. Overload itself is obviously priority, I just hope this concept to update Descent 3 is still in the woodwork. Thanks!

I sent an e-mail about this but haven’t received a response yet.
There is actually a couple of patches already available which improve the game, for example the 1.4 32-bit patch (custom built) which allows you to run the game without texture obliteration. It’s an absolute godsend on newer systems with GPU’s that don’t support those old textures.
The thing that most interests me is getting D3 running in a window without having to mess up your desktop programs…That would save a lot of hassle 🙂April 6, 2017 at 3:33 pm #13296ZeetherParticipantTopics: 3
I’d love to see the update happen. The game does take a bit of tweaking on my end to run and it would be nice to have the option to play it without much fuss.
Too bad with the lack of it on Steam/GOG some people will be locked out of being able to play it with the update…April 27, 2017 at 11:20 am #13720defconxKickstarter BackerTopics: 17
Would there be any legal issue with making a D3 update? Is the IP in question?May 1, 2017 at 10:59 am #13753ZeetherParticipantTopics: 3
I don’t think there are, but people who didn’t get the game back when it was on sale on GOG won’t be able to make use of the update since the games were pulled.June 6, 2017 at 1:47 pm #14118Matt ToschlogOverload TeamTopics: 22
What do you mean by “a D3 update”? As for the IP, I own the copyright for Descent 3 but Interplay owns the trademark. So it really depends on what you might be doing.

Probably the compatibility patch that (if I recall correctly) Jeff Slutter and Kevin Bentley were working on, but I think you mentioned during the SDS interview that they are a little busy at the moment…
