    I’ve been away from the scene for so long. What’s the current state of descent multiplayer? I know Kali used to be a thing but unsure if it still is?

    Do most people play on D3 multiplayer now? And if so, how can I join them?

    Getting started: http://www.descentchampions.org/new_player.php

    If you like 1v1 ladder matches: http://www.descentchampions.org/

    If you like group-oriented play: http://www.descentrangers.com/

    Many folks are in both DCL and Rangers.

    Most games are Descent 1 and 2 these days. Not many Descent 3 (from what I’ve seen). Although I know there are a number of active players who also enjoy D3.

    Both groups meet on a Mumble server. Download Mumble here: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/ then connect to server address mumble.descentrangers.com on port 31393.

    Hope to see you!

    Thanks Verran!

    On a side note, I’ve thought about buying and old sidewinder 3D pro. What’s the current word on the availability of a gameport to usb adapter for them?

    No problem!

    If you’re technically savvy, you could try building your own using the info on this thread:

    Otherwise, you may have to inquire to see if anyone has any for sale, or find someone willing to build you one:

    I got lucky and purchased the last two from a guy who made a bunch and sold them a few years back.

    The DCL’s quite active these days.
    Just last Friday, there was a livestream event over Twitch where pilots played commentated 1v1 matches to defend their home levels.
    It lasted over 6 hours, and there still wasn’t enough time to play all the scheduled matches.
