I remember I had some strategy against terapinners that worked well... I don't remember what it was and I'd imagine it would work best against terapinners that had normal gauss cannons. With the Lost Levels weapons, you're probably out of luck.

Hope you brought loads and loads of cloaks.

Ich! Someone is doing a similar challenge run of TEW as I am, and he's doing it better than me! My challenge is only on hotshot, not insane! My run is ruined! :chainsaw:
On the brightside, he's doing it in pure vanilla Descent, so at least I've got the beauty of D2X-XL on my side! :drool:

And his midi is super messed-up. The Descent 2 menu song is not supposed to have a piano! :D
Can't imagine what his framerate must be like either. I'll stick with your run once I get around to watching it.

He is showing off with a pseudo nostalgia version of the game, but uses the wrong midi?!

Blasphemy!

What the heck? I thought these levels in Enemy Within were supposed to be rather small? (or at best, medium sized) I get to level 15 and it still hasn't ended? My first foray into this massive level was met with...less than stellar results. I've hit the yellow key but still am unsure of how much further I have left in the level. This is one impressive level.

Small levels were the plan, but that plan didn't survive it's contact with reality in the end. ;-)

Afaik 15 is the biggest level though, and it was built by Darkhorse, one of the best Descent level authors; And Darkhorse doesn't look like the kind of guy to settle with anything less than spectacular.

Honestly I think the mission's better off for it, it feels more like a complete set than Vignettes... hell, it feels more complete than any other fan made mission I've played.

If I'd known we were Going Large, I would probably have spent more time on a couple levels here or there... but then again, nobody ever complained that levels 7/13/19 were too short, so probably no big deal.

Oh... yeah, and I wouldn't have been able to do the reactor room in 19 without 400 cubes to burn.

Speaking of DH, he should have a new multiplayer level done soon from what I've been seeing... it is a little bit insane.

Darkhorse, Sirius and I totally need to get together and build another set. It'd be the best thing since unsliced bread. :laola:

Nope, nope and nope! I hate the Kalki! I just started level 16 (had a rather long hiatus but finally got around to beating level 15! Wasn't that bad actually!) and the level starts you off with level 1 lasers and you have to face off with a Kalki with nothing but that and some Concussion missiles! :horror: You've got to be kidding me! What a great way to start the ice levels. This is going to suck!
