* Version Notes *
0.x Beta test versions
1.0 Our first public release
1.1 Bug fix release
1.2 Latest update
New for v1.1
Recompiled TALOSL.WAD using BSP v2.1 -
Doing this corrected the bug in MAP15 which left the Mancubus
stuck INSIDE its platform instead of standing on top of it. This
was not a design error - just a BSP error...
Recompiling the WAD also fixed all the texture bleed problems
(notably in MAPs 04 and 15)... Again, another old BSP problem...
As a side effect, it also made the WAD about 100k smaller than
the previous version...
Credits corrected -
I'd mistakenly credited Malcolm Sailor with recording one of the
demos used in the game. In fact it was Patrick Martin... Sorry
about that Patrick :-)
New for v1.2
Fixed some minor bugs in level 11
Added level title graphics for all 20 levels
Changed version number in end screen!
