Oh my, it's about time! Nice job working on this project for, for so long. It's not everyone's cakewalk if it takes a lot of year, as far as my experience goes.

Anyway i'll give this a try!

EDIT: Aaaaand got meself fatal error already! That's weird. I'm pretty sure i read the readme and followed the instructions... The error message was:

ParseTeamInfo: Load team definitions.
LoadActors: Load actor definitions.
Script Error, "chexgc.wad:DECORATE" line 3192:
Parent type, 'ChexDinerTable' not found in DinerTableV4

Execution could not continue.

1 errors while parsing DECORATE scripts.'

Yeah i downloaded the gzdoom package, downloaded chex3 zip readme provided.

Yeah, I'm hearing this from others too. It looks like this issue is occurring because you're using Version 1.1. of Chex Quest 3, which is apparently the version currently hosted on Charles Jacobi's website. I'm not sure what happened to Version 1.4 of Chex Quest 3, but given that the changes between Version 1.1 and Version 1.4 of CQ3 are extensive (e.g. in Version 1.1, damage handling for the Flem Mines is different and several textures and patches included in Version 1.4 are missing and not defined), I'm not sure I can patch them all into the Galactic Conflict PWAD without directly copying a sizable portion of chex3.wad Version 1.4 in its entirety. This may be something I can fix, but I'm hesitant to copy too much of the CQ3 IWAD without explicitly marking which bits of the Galactic Conflict PWAD are not mine and giving the appropriate credit, which is going to take some time.

In the interim, I've hosted a copy of CQ3 Version 1.4 here. So long as you use ZDoom/GZDoom to run CQ:GC with this IWAD, it should function correctly.

Apologies for this. :?

Actually, it's still being hosted on the Chex Mix site, but you need to use this link to download it, because without the number, it redirects you to Chex HD's page. I checked the file to confirm it being version 1.4.
