I bet it's the one that's hidden in a small cave on the side of one of the big island, and you have to jump down to the cloud layer to reach it. The big one with the temple ruins right to the north, in front of you when you start, with the big coin you can reach if you climb on its wall and tightrope all the way to it. So go there, go to its north edge, and drop down on the cloud below.

So I did a 2 hour stream of the first 10 levels or so. Anyway, after you enter "Chapter 3" (the area up the stairs), I have a total of 9 souls (from chapter 1 and 2, and the bonus level). There's four more levels, totaling to 13 souls, but the "enchanted stairs" demand 15. Where are the other two levels?

edit: After editing and merging I can't make YT happy. So here's the playlist.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... B9XKJEXYoe

Sorry I missed the post. Anyway http://www.twitch.tv/august55/

However, as of this post I just did my part 2. I have the three bonus levels left past the 17th golden soul. I may stream tonight or tuesday depending on the mood.

I'm hopefully going to have a big ol YT video at some point this week featuring everything.

edit: Part 3's stream is done. That space ghost level had a serious problem where I couldn't figure out how to get to the clocktower, so I ended up noclipping it. Not fun. I have to merge some videos but I'll have a three part series of my playthrough available maybe late tomorrow.

Some feedback in the meantime:

-Thanks for making the health less for those rose things.
-Speaking of those, I thought it was silly I could AK snipe them half of the time as their fireball was ranged.
-The "hug wall and get red coin" thing in the second level was silly.
-The desert level suffered from a problem where if the player had not enough health, they could potentially be stranded and not be able to swim in the sand. Why no rad suit?
-Several, if not all, of the red coin levels had a problem of momentum. I would get 7 coins only to have to figure out where the last one is hiding and waste up to 10 minutes trying to figure out where it is. Two of these (Space Ghost House and Lucy in the Sky with Coins) were so "well hidden" that I ended up cheating to get them after wasting 20 minutes a pop trying to find them.
-Many of the maps suffered from "what does this switch do?" syndrome. If a switch does something useful and it's not obvious, at least maybe spawn an arrow made of coins to point the player where to go. I had to guess with the automap on several occasions. I think the worst offender was the Crayon level.
-The red coins themselves could have been more obvious looking objects like the golden souls or doomguy coins. On a few occasions, they blended into the map a bit too much. The lunar map was the worst offender, as the red coin blended with the dead demons.
-There's a point in the first video that had me confused on how to deal with the ghosts. While innovative, having them simply to translucent doesn't tell the average doom player squat that they have to look away. They should have covered their eyes maybe, as the Mario ones do.
-Speaking of the ghost level, where were the health pickups? <_<
-The flying stealth mages were awful after dealing with them for the 50th time. I lost patience with them really quickly.
-The spike gun was very underpowered.
-I'm not sure if I agree with the inability to properly semifire the autoshotgun.
-In Rainbow citadel, a number of the jump pads flung me to my death.

It was a lot of fun, but all these nitpicks make it hard to want to play it again.

I found it was a nice puzzle, personally.

Ah.

I really wish I saw that in the one video I found regarding that level (during the stream, lol). Instead it was nothing but darkness. My brain normally reserves that sort of thing for secrets, though.

edit: @Batandy: Have you considered a challenge mode where the player pistol starts each level?

I don't think that's related to the mod, have you tried messing with the settings in gzdoom? For example try changing the "adjust sprite clipping" in the opengl settings
