Blood correctly spelled. Demos and title screen added. Solution demo created for Bishop's Vault.
Second chance at the door on the south end of Crystal Caverns. That door was once not repeatable so if you missed it, you got stuck! Thanks to Byron Hinkle for the bug report.
Fixed a bug in level one where there was two player four start ones and no player two start ones. (Byron again!)
version 1.5 (only for Mac users)
Added some safeguards to the pillar room so that Mac users could solve the pillar puzzle. Thanks to Eric Margolis for his help in debugging this version.
Finally! A WAD with brains and brawn! Vaults is great!

I just spent three hours solving Vaults WAD. I wish Raven had written the
original game so well. The special effects in Vaults are awesome!

Got to say, Your vaults12 wad for Hexen was the best wad I've ever seen. I think it is better than the original game.

I just wanted to send you a note saying how much I enjoyed your Vaults1.3.WAD! I spent a VERY pleasurable weekend working my way through the very intricate and beautiful world you crafted! I loved the many new and exciting effects you worked into it! And hope you are working/planning on more new levels even now!
Keep up the good work! Excellent!

... I just wanted to let you know that [Vaults] was a very impressive work. One where you could just *tell* that planning and thought went into it. I'm an author of a level myself, and a Doom1 Grand Master, so I've been through a few levels to say the least...

Hi, just played Vaults (V1.3) for Hexen & just HAD to e-mail & say how much I enjoyed it. I think this is about the best Hexen hub I've played to date! The end was well-worth waiting for! And isn't Korax an evil coward... just as you're getting some fire-power in, he disappears & sends his minions in as cannon-fodder! But seriously, I liked every level: each one had something I've never seen before. It must have taken AGES just to do the designing! I LOVED the force-field-type effect. I enjoyed every minute of Vaults... there were so many ORIGINAL effects, and such good level design; and so much to hold the player's attention WITHOUT being too complex or frustrating... this is very hard to get just right, but you managed it here.

I love the levels they are excellent the best I've played congratulations on an excellent job writing these levels.

I got your vaults level and there's thing I said when I played this: "Erm... this is bloody good". No, this is not just the Quake style 'oh, let's go find the switch and lower
the lift', it's more like. 'Ok, what do I here?' It took me about 2 and a half hours to do this with save files...I'm currently making a 31 level Hexen WAD, but it will NEVER be as good
as your level. Well done!
