i have descent: Destination Saturn (first 15 lvls)

and as far as i know the controls are customizable AND it is better to use the keybord than a joystick for it. ALSO here are some codes


gabbagabbahey - toggle cheat mode

racerx - godmode

bigred - wowie zowie weapons (all weapons AND fully upgraded laser)

guile - cloak

mitzi - all keys

farmerjoe - level warp

bruin - extra life

flash - lines the path to the exit with shield bonus (the yellow star things)

ahimsa - enemies cant fire


**You will know when the code works because you will hear a woman say "cheater" and it will appear under your score**

**WARNING: DO NOT USE CODES IF YOU WISH TO SET HIGH SCORE!! USING ANY OF THESE CODES WILL ERASE YOUR SCORE AND MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ANY POINTS!! (score always = 0)**




Hope these help ya out.

I hear 'Chear'.

With hatty, right hand controls slidin', shootin', pitcoin' and turnin' left and right when left's on arrows. Thou need 4 hands to control ship and weapons. (I know.)

Speaking of which could someone e-mail me Radix: Beyond the void? For some reason my computer won't download the one found at www.dosgames.com. Suspicious

i beat the first 15 levels BEFORE i knew about the cheats when i was all but 8 Years old!!! 4 hands my ars..


heres what i used:

q - primary (laser...)
w - rockets
e - flares
r - mines

f - turn left
j - turn right

a - accellerate
z - slow down/reverse

b - curise on/off
n - increase cruise
m - decrease cruise

up arrow - move towards the celing
down arrow - move towards the ground
left arrow - move to the left wall
right - move to the right wall

y - roll up (nose to celing)
u - roll dwon (nose to ground)
i - roll sideways left (left wing to ground)
o - roll sideways right (right wing to ground)

i know i had more mapped, but i dont remember what, but the [q][w][e][r] makes it really good for offence 'cos they are all together.

Fav Weapon combo:

not cloaked:
Plasma cannon
Homing OR Mega Missles

Cloaked:
Vulcan (harder to see you due to little lite that it produces)
concussion OR homing missles

GENERATOR Killer:
Charged Fusion cannon
Any missles


hope this helps
