    Old game written for DOS, really fun, multiplayer, level building, etc. I have no doubt the iPod/iPhone could run it. I have the source code, and the Cube source code (I want to use those controls, they would work very well.)

    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: SOURCE CODE LINKS

    Porting D2X-XL would be prefered, as it supports both Descent and Descent 2 as well as their addon missions.

    You need to know at least ONE programming language.

    That's my problem. I need someone with porting experience to help me. The source codes are really small and simple, I bet you could combine the two, in a way.

    Awesome idea! I'm not much of a coder but I totally endorse this project, I think it would be great. The biggest trick would be getting the controls right.

    Controls would be similar to Cube. Those fit well. The D2X-XL engine would be great to port as it supports add-ons galore.

    Can you post the source code to descent? (Only do so if it's legal, but if you have it, I assume it is Open Source)
