This pwad package is a slight upgrade of Hostage Rescue 2 "Back in Black."
This update has occurred because:
1: Our dehacked patch caused computer lock-ups when played on some normal
Doom2 levels. *
2: We were able to implement some old ideas which we'd previous thought were
Major additions, changes, modifications etc, are:
- A new level, the addition of tear-gas hand grenades, "silenced" Beretta
instead of double pistols, H&K MP5K now has a laser sight, a new bat file
streamline multiplayer games, fixed dehacked patch and sundry cosmetic fixes
* Known Bugs *
Grenades occasionally pass through external walls and leave the play area.
This seems to be a bug with the Doom engine. Play around with the rocket
launcher for long enough, and you'll see what we mean.
