I've also tried to make it challenging for coop. play as well. First and foremost its a single player level, and therefore it's pretty big. (It takes me about 15 minutes to complete on UV.) You need to flick three switches spread around the map in the right order to pick up the blue key, which will enable you to get the red key which is right at the beginning (and end) of the level. If your having trouble finding the switches or working out the order, the automap will help. (Really!) There's a secret you have to find to get to the blue key, but it's pretty obvious. To make the level more enjoyable in deathmatch, most of it is unreachable in multiplayer games. It's just too big for a good dm otherwise. All the weapons are available, but if you don't like the BFG too much, play with monsters ON. This will also make it harder for somebody to end the level too early when no one else wants too. If there's too many mosters, just play on an easier difficulty setting but I definitely recommend monsters. You may find the level plays too slowly with monsters in multiplayer. It might be a good idea to play without monsters or on the easiest difficulty level if you have a 386 or 486-33 with < 8M. Finally (if you actually bothered to read this far), as the map is small in deathmatch, so it is in cooperative. But don't worry, there's an extra challenge at the exit which may require some teaming up to overcome. This is to compensate for the fact that the blue key is so easy to get. You have been warned.
