Note: This is version 1.1 of this wad (this updated version released June
2008) which takes various criticisms into account. Mainly I've removed the
jarringly impossible and unfair puzzle from the middle of the level. If
you've played the previous version of this level, then the other
differences probably aren't worth looking for, unless you really wanted to
play this again anyway. And if you're new to this wad, don't worry, you
didn't miss anything. If you have a taste for the impossible, the secrets
should still be hidden well enough for ya.
Running this level:
I prefer how this level looks with software rendering. Use hardware if you
must, but beware - my artistic vision may not shine forth.

Don't use PrBoom at default settings - monster telefragging has to be enabled.
So, you should either set that setting to "YES" or just load the game with
-compat 9 before playing this level in that port.

I recommend using ZDoom - you can enable freelook but NOT jumping.

Don't use Legacy, or any other port that breaks voodoo dolls.
