What secrets are you talking about, and The Iron Troll is not a level in this. Unless you mean the Iron Vault?

I can barely read the tiny text due to my poor eyesight so I guess my brain just filled in the gaps with whatever. Must have been Iron Vault.

I said something negative about the level design but I should also balance it with something positive because there are also good aspects to the level design. The boss level in the first episode was great. Very clear where to go next and lots of different challenges all over.

I'm having a problem, I can't seem to break the breakable blocks.

Question: Why is the secret level gem green? I noticed in the files the red one used in early versions as CRY2, why the color change? And the graphic of these should've been changed in the help screen to match the sprites.
EDIT: I decided to make the graphics for more credit pages, feel free to not use it.

It would be great to also have some kind of indicator for having all crystals collected in fullscreen mode, not just with the statusbar active.

So I've noticed a major issue as of gzdoom 4.2.4. The block models seem to be rendering incorrectly and I don't know why. This doesn't seem to happen with other models, but I'm not sure?

Have you tested it with 4.2.4a or any of the dev builds? I'm currently using 4.2.4a and was planning on playing through your TC soon, so just wondering if I'll need to downgrade to 3.8.1 or something.

I have not. I've been sticking with whatever is downloadable from the main page, as that's what most people will be playing with. This issue was not cropping up in 4.1.x so I don't know what changed.

I have yet to play this but I saw Gman's review and saw the Jazz levels and I have one thing to say. You gotta do a jazz TC. The bits I DID see from it made it look amazing :D I agree with what he said how it'd make a good argument for why jazz would have made a amazing FPS. If you put that attention to detail to just a bonus? Imagine how cool a full scale TC would be.

There was already a Jazz Jackrabbit TC released fairly recently and is still currently being further developed.

a glitch with i found in the 3th map when u take the white potion the one that gives u rapid fire, the overlay for showing its active is misaligned it covers like3/4 of the screens. i have a garbage pc otherwise i would have shown some screenshots. have tryed different versions of gzdoom messed around with video settings nothing fixed it

TLDR:- Rapid fire potion[white one] overlay to show its active is misaligned :u
