Pretty good!  I did notice that I couldn't see the 3d water or slime effects.  Are those OpenGL exclusive?  Apart from that, there were a few teture errors, mainly around sloped parts of the map.

3D water and floors seem to only work with OpenGL, and as such, I believe I will have to postpone my playing of this update until I get my OpenGL fixed. :facepalm

Textures are hard to get aligned right on slopes.

Figures.

By the way, E1M7 is the most sadistic level ever to appear in a Chex Quest game.  I just finally got through it without God mode.

EDIT: What do the Archy the Bomb things do?  The last one at least seems to have a purpose, but the rest of them are just there.

They are just items you can find, they have no real purpose besides a extra challenge finding them all.

in "status of the lost quest" it should say beta 22 will have E2M1 done
-problem with the music: it just kept playing the intro music over and over, except when you win.
-grammar nazi'ing: the end message says "flemiod" at least twice, and "themselfs" should be "themselves"
as for the actual level...OMGOMGOMG!!!! i tried it without god mode at first, but was slimed after the first two maximi, so i did it on god mode. that level is frikkin crazy!!

So I haven't played TLQ since it was on Legacy because I've been getting errors. But it's working now and I LOVE what you've done with everything!! I'm only on on about the 4th or 5th level but it looks great and I am looking forward to the craziness on M7.

btw: is the "yellow flemkey" supposed to open up the green doors? 'cause it shows up as green on the HUD but it won't open up the green door for me. I think I'm in M5 but idk. It's the first level where you find the flemkey.

Complete playthrough, I think... I didn't find any bonus levels.

I like it  :whale

There were a couple weird parts, and the last two levels didn't do it for me (too repetitive on the green textures... I know it's the sewer, but still, green blocks get kind of old). The very end of E1M7 was cool.

Arch, can you even beat E1M7? I've done some crazy things in doom, but for nearly the whole time in E1M7 I had Davidbrus on.... I'd put some health in that elevator, at least.

I had it on at the end because I'm no good at dodging homing projectiles

There's a couple bugs, but you change so much each beta, they're probably not worth mentioning.

You know your doors close really fast?

Also, your levels are really long, which I like, but the music sometimes got old for me... Red Storage particularly.

Where do you get your music from, anyway?

I know, I wish I could make my own music, but I can't make a song to save my life.  ><

I get my music from VGMusic.

I WAS going to add some pipes on the walls of some of those levels, but apparently I forgot... <<

I have beaten it multiple times, maybe I should do a Youtube video.

Anyways I'm glad you enjoyed it!  :whale

I found some music for you, let me know what you think

http://www.mediafire.com/?o3hjymxcqem

Changes - E1M4 (not a great match, I'm still thinking about it), E1M6, E1M7 (might be a bit too loud, but it's fun at least)

and instead of silence for the area before the boss in E1M7, what if you used something sort of like what plays in yoshi's island when you're walking to the boss, you know what I mean?

E1M6 might be too heavy for your wad, but I'm not sure. I think it's a good fit because it's starting to get difficult at that point, but then again, it's pretty hardcore for CQ.

EDIT -
I found one song for E1M4 that fits well, but it's way too fast. It fits excellently, but it'll give the player a heart attack, and I don't think E1M4 is a cardiac arrest friendly level. XD

E1M4 and E1M6 doesn't fit that well, I like E1M7 music a lot but it doesn't match the feel I'm trying to get, I might use it in episode 2.  Do you mind just giving me the new E1M4 and the E1M7 midi?
