        OK. Here's the scoop...

        First off. PLAY THIS LEVEL IN COOP MODE!!! If you try to play it in
DM, the random respawn may stick you on one of the other players platforms.
I'm trying to find away around this, but no luck so far. Besides, it's kinda
cool to F12 and watch the other guy getting plastered. :)

        There are 2 walls of switches, one with 4, and one with 5. The
switches now have labels so you can tell what does what. The switches are
in pairs except for fire & missle select.

       1 2     3 4     5            1) Vertical Angle -  (aim lower)
                             6      2) Vertical Angle +  (aim higher)
                             7      3) Lower Velocity    (shoot nearer)
                                    4) Raise Velocity    (shoot farther)
            10                      5) Change Missle     (see below)
                             8      6) Lower Platform
                             9      7) Raise Platform
                                    8) Rotate (play with it, it's different
                                    9) Rotate  for each platform)
                                   10) FIRE!!!

        Generally, for the paired switches, the right switch increases, the
left switch decreases. The fire switch on the cannon, well, it fires the
cannon! :) The missle select switch cycles through various missles you can
shoot at your victum. 

                          FIREBALL     (easy to see, use for targeting)
                          RIPPERBALL
                          POISON DART  (hard for victum to see comming)
                          BLADE
                          ARROW
                          ICE SHARD    (freeze that sucker solid)
                          MORPH PLAST  (turn him into a pig)

        I am including the script. If you have an editor and know how to
compile and use scripts, you can adjust several of the parameters.

        I'm working on labeling the switches and giving a digital readout
of angle, velocity, ect. The labels are done. The digital readout is really
slick. It's the only one of it's kind! :)

        Found away around the 32 variable limit, now all the angles are
mapped between 0 & 180. 0 is on the cannons left, 180 is on the cannons right,
no matter what cannon your using...

        I've made several wads, but usually me and my friends play them.
This is the first wad I've let out to the public, so I'll need some feedback.
