This is another one of those Ares levels that has been under great scrutiny
as to if we were going to make it on of the namesake levels. This one is by
far the least played, but I know that some of you wierd people out there like
my wierder ones better than us here in VT.
There is an exit, which is obviously hidden. Check the corridor wall
inbetween the stairs behind the 1 way walls. You should be able to find these
stairs after a little while. The door is hidden, so just keep checking.
There is a hidden room in the game, kinda like the one in some of the
versions of ares1.wad. It can also be found, after some extensive searching,
in the silver corridor of death. Actually, the easiest way to figure out how
to get into the vulture room is to look at the level with a level editor. I
use deu, because it is by far the easiest level editor to use! Another way
to find this room is by e-mailing me if you've got the time. It's easier to
explain if you've played the level some.
There's some other tricks that you can pick up as you play, so I
highly suggest going into an editor to check this one out if you want that
evil advantage over your friends. The reasoning behind level being unfair
is easy; Scott Stancliff is my cousin and it's a lot of fun to piss him off,
so the rest of us built in the secret room to vulture him exclusivly. It's
really funny to hear him bitch and moan about being shot from "somewhere in
the wall" - Uhhh, nope just a glitch Scott. Well, now I feel lame for
typing that. Sorry all.....
