He did say original. ;)
I know what you're thinking. No, I don't like peanut butter.

If I had to choose between the real world or the Chex Quest Fan forums; I'd choose the Chex Quest fan forums.

Technically, the "original" doom monsters were the ones in the shareware, as that came out first. And Doom 2 monsters are original.

But shareware was just one episode, and it didn't technically come first...it was just the only free thing. Original doom refers to the 3 episode DooM of which a shareware was released to gain popularity and attention that would hopefully make you buy it. This Monster list includes

Possesed
Sergeant
Demon
Imp
Bruiser
Cacodemon
Cyberdemon
Lost soul and
Spider Mastermind

DooM 2 added
Archvile
Pain elemental
SpiderDemon
Revenant
Chaingunner
mancubus
Knight
and John Romero's head on a stick XD

(and if you say ANYTHING about me missing one...do it nicely, plz?)

The Shareware was the first version of Doom ever released. It was released on a server at a university.

Also, to dig up an old issues, throughout the readme and the in-game text itself, the cacodemon replacement is consistently referred to as the Super Cycloptis. I think the issue on what the cacodemon replacement is named is forever settled, and that that new silly name that we came up with should be dropped off of the face of the earth. >:D

Wich one? I agree if you mean Super cycloptis. >:D
I, of course, mean that silly name, "Flemoidus Cycloptis Ultricus". All of the text strings, like when you get slimed by the Super Cycloptis, the Doom II gallery text, and even the readme say Super Cycloptis, so there can be no doubt anymore what the official name is. You don't question Chukker's name, do you? :-\

Anyway, I found a couple of other things. The new switch system in E1M2 for the 3 "hidden switches" is a little messed up. they don't open the right doors, and one doesn't open at all. :-\

Also, in E3M1, there is a little problem with a door at the end of the red flashing area. If you open it, but don't go in and it closes, you can't open it again from the red room, which makes the red key impossible to get without cheating.

If somebody has some time and is industrious enough, it would be nice to get these bugs and other feedback compiled somewhere I can easily reference it. It could be a post in the tech support section or a wiki page. Some of them, like the lock assignments on E3M2, I will try to correct soon enough.

Isn't the Spiderdemon just another name for the Spidermastermind? It's not a new monster...

Anyways, I've done some thinking about the lost soul replacement and I think I like it... but not as a lost soul replacement, as a DECORATE 'Slime Bomb'.
I also SERIOUSLY had EPIC LULZ when I saw the 'Shreddies Provincial park' and made it look like english countryside... Only English people would get this joke. I salute you, Chukker!

Chukker, that was incredible. The first level was sorta slow, and I was worried that the rest of the game would be that way. However, by the third level, the action was so intense I was actually sweating! You have outdone yourself, I must say!

The attention to detail and atmosphere in those levels was incredible. The new flemoids were all very intense [Stridicus gave me particular grief with how fast that thing is!]

Perhaps my ONLY complaint is that there is a continual shortage of Ammunition on Easy Does It. Either that, or I am just trigger happy [the latter is most likely the case]

Either way, I just spent the last two hours of my life having one of the most intense gaming experiences I've had in years. Good Job does not adequately describe the work you have done.
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

Quote from: Readme
I grabbed the source code for ZDoom and downloaded Visual Studio Express Edition and Windows software SDK. I set a goal for myself to compile a geniune Chex3.exe for this mod.

:( I guess I'm unable to play it then (I use Linux).

Edit: Was the zdoom.pk3 modified?

Well, the ammo shortage makes it interesting.  You have to be conservative or invent ways to get through.  If you're good at using a spoon, try taking out all communuses with it.  Then move on to cycloptisus.  If you're feeling daring try the beppies.  You can save ammo this way, and that's how I beat it on Extreme Ooze.

I found myself quite short ammo on the first level and had to use my Bootspoon against some BWAs and some others around the beginning of the level, but I didn't have to do it past the first portion of the first level after I found some good packs. I carefully budgeted between the Large Zorcher, the Rapid Zorcher, the Propulsor (by the way, MUCH more practical with the splash damage removed), and the LAZ Device under certain situations.

I also noted that the Propulsor explosion sound was changed to that of the LAZ Device. What's up with that?

EDIT: Yes, the PK3 was edited. The language.enu file is evidence of that.

Like Zorchdude said, you duplicated the spider mastermind, but you also forgot the arachnotron. Honestly, just go to this Doom Wiki page for a complete monster list.
