Woah, how'd you get that title image? The problem I had been voicing to Martin with these co-op levels is that my level numbering had (stupidly) put them at the very end of the game, after Aye Mak Sicur. That was sort of my reason for the lack of a proper map image - I wanted to hold off on that so that it might... dissuade you from doing this too soon. After all, we can't go from level 2 to level 29 all at once, can we? ;)

As it so happens, you created a new title image without messing up the actual quality of it, thus putting the level number at 2A instead of 29. How did you do that?

: To my knowledge this is the only first person shooter using 2D sprites that
: visibly shows the player sprite holding the weapon that's on their HUD.
: You'd never see this until you play a netgame. Generally, 2.5D fps games
: of the time didn't bother. It wouldn't be until 3D polygonal models that
: this practice became standard, because it's easier to implement on a 3D
: model, and for 2D sprites it's a lot of effort for something that most
: players won't even care about. Just look at the fine touches. The TOZT-7
: napalm canisters are proudly hoisted onto the player's back and the wire
: hangs below the torso over the legs.

I did not know this. Interesting to hear.

Keep up the good work, mate, and I'll make the necessary arrangements with Hamish to get all the headers and map listings in order (which shouldn't be too difficult - I just need to move the Vidmaster levels back two numbers, as the co-op levels were listed right in-between them and Aye Mak Sicur).

Vale,
Perseus
