Hyperspace: Silent Fury is a unique FreeSpace style space shooter using the Descent 3 engine and is part of the 'Hyperspace' series which includes Basewars, Silent Fury and the classic multiplayer trilogy which was designed for Assault & CTF (Standoff [2003], Divided [2003] and Apotheosis [2004]). The Hyperspace/Basewars series was heavily influenced by various shows and games including Babylon 5, FreeSpace, EVE, Star Trek and others.

Basewars Redux is an openworld level (originally released in 2006) that features multiple systems to explore, mini-missions, hidden facilities and various types of enemies. The Redux version strips out the team-vs-team code and makes the level more suitable for singleplayer and multiplayer co-op. It features a new AI-controlled enemy team, resource management system, base repair function and friendly units.

Silent Fury Features:

  • 5-levels plus one secret bonus mission
  • Tons of new objects including custom enemy ships, stations, turrets, drones etc
  • A whole bank of new textures and sound effects
  • Features a music score from Dan Wentz (FS REDUX)
  • The only Descent 3 campaign to be fully voice acted (nearly 400 lines of dialogue)
  • Custom scripts including recharging when idle, repair/refuel support ship and other cool gadgets
  • Some basic story to enjoy!

Setup

Before playing, you should consult the readme and make sure your game is setup correctly.
The 32-bit patch is highly recommended, along with custom command lines such as:

width 1920 -height 1080 -aspect 1.78 -usesmoothing -himem -hividmem -subpixelcorrect -nocompress
-nosparkles -nomotionblur -nomultitexture -z32bit -framecap 100

Adjust these accordingly to your requirements and tastes. WARNING: Do not use a high framecap. This will crash the game! You will need a good computer - an old PC isn't going to cut it. SOME systems may not be able to play this at all. I've tried to isolate as many issues as possible (D3 is a nightmare to mod!) but I cannot guarantee it will work on all setups.

This is how the game should look if you have setup correctly:

Some Initial Tips & Info for Silent Fury

  • The first mission is a training/introduction mission
  • Be conservative with energy and secondaries. Learn how to use the support and gadgets at the
  • right times :)
  • Set music to about 20-30% if sound is 100%
  • Use the PING feature to make it easier locating your team
  • You cannot use save/load with these levels.

Known Issues

  • The readme file lists most of the known problems.
  • If you find a new issue, let me know - include your setup information (system specs, D3 settings etc)
  • Multiplayer is NOT supported in SIlent Fury due to the way the missions work
  • Only critical bugs will be addressed, if a fix is possible

A new version of Basewars has been released! Basewars Redux is a small side project I've been working on that strips out the original multiplayer aspects of the level and inserts an entirely AI-controlled enemy team that will attack your base. Some other cool new features are available, too. Check it out!:)

A note for GOG users. If you are using the GOG version of Descent 3 with the 3DFX Glide wrapper, Silent Fury probably won't display backgrounds correctly. You'll need to use the OpenGL setting (as described in the readme) and apply the 32-bit patch instead.

A fatal bug was found in the initial release which caused Silent Fury to crash on some systems (usually after loading the first level). This SHOULD be fixed now, simply download the installer again or place this hotfix in your Descent 3 folder: Sectorgame.com
