I appreciate the feedback, Captain J. Time to answer the questions:

- Is it me? Or most of Bosses have slight immune to bullets? I swear i emptied all 100 rounds to armorless Hitler, but he didn't die so i had to gather full ammo again and spray against him. Only Schabbs did that, no?

The problem is that NightFright had been messing around with the difficulty settings, so for whatever reason, on Death Incarnate you get 16 bullets from a clip and like 90 from an ammo box. This isn't the case in Mission Packs, though. I haven't updated Original, Nocturnal & SoD to include these fixes yet. Stay tuned.

Speaking of, some battles like General Fettgesicht's are impossible to win if you empty all your ammo and have to ride the elevator to refill. Because the missiles in this TC are all explosive now.

I see what you mean. There is a chance for Fatface to camp at the elevator when you go refill your ammo.. when I update the Nocturnal maps, I will try to fix this problem.

- Not sure why Lost Levels only have the door and secret wall behavior. Wolf3D and SoD ones are just filled with raising doors.

Caleb's Mission Packs is newer compared to the other levels made by Laz Rojas. Original, Nocturnal & SoD have the Boom format, and I'm too lazy to insert pushwalls in finished maps :D

- Bosses' gatling gun sound, and Enemies' pistol sound are same as the Player's. I think i could share some available sound effects for ya.

Thanks I'll look into it.

- I expect there will be Lost Level's own weapon sprites too.

I'm not sure, there's a better probability the MP40 could get replaced with an STG. Blue guns just ain't my kind of thing. :)

- I see that the Lost Levels' treasure items are randomized. But i do hope the Wolf3D and SoD act the same.

Could be possible, but it will take a lot of time to examine the original DOS maps and replace the same treasure objects in Wolfendoom with "item caulked" ones.

Also Plutonium? Control Panel? I think they're actually Cannon Shell and Time Bomb.

Golden cannon shells? Huh, no wonder the Nazis ran low on their budgets. These pickup messages are based off of the original version's treasure names and ECWolf's definitions.

Just replace all the weapons with something different. No need to be grossly blue just like what Lost Levels did.

I can see that. But you could just randomize the sprites.

I don't know, but i'm sure AFADoomer described Plutonium as a Shell. But you're the boss.

EDIT: I also just found out that SoD's purple brick wall texture is still... Well, bright Purple. Since the Turquoise color is gone, can you handle this one too?

And about the Bobbing movement, it's still there. Just like Vanilla one. I don't think the Original Game also did that.

I'm not planning to remove the view bobbing. This is WolfenDoom, after all, so not everything has to be 1:1 to Wolfenstein.

Well, you have a point there. I'm really don't want to see this TC collection to be an uncanny-valley level of Wolf3D mimicry. Some changes of them are quite nice!
Spoiler: And here are some extra feedback:

Noted all of these issues, I kinda don't have much time. I appreciate the sprite fixes, though.

Seems I didn't do enough testing on The Ultimate Challenge, either that or I didn't notice 99% of the texture errors, lol. I'll check these out, thanks for reporting.

Credits are inside, but let me know if you want to verify some of the sprites.

I very much appreciate the sprite fixes!! Also, I might have forgotten to unmark a few sectors as secrets. Those areas used to be mandatory secrets, which ZikShadow and I hunted down and removed. I'll try to think of something about the dark switch, it was unintentional but it's interesting that it can be spotted in dark :)

You should add tags for the Wolf weapons, it's odd to have the selection pop up and say "Brass Knuckles" for the Knife, or "Shotgun" for the Machine Gun.

Good catch. I never use tags, but this could be a good addition.

Spoiler: "Feedback about the original episodes"
And i've managed to edit more stuff for your wolfendoom collection. Like actual lift textures for both games, Lost Episodes' icon and the idle rotations for doberman!

EDIT: fixed some lift textures of being misaligned. Oops.
