It's mouse-look that I absolutely love. The game just plays so much nicer with the modern control scheme.

If you're curious, the game's not fully working yet - iMuse isn't implemented, nor 2ndary fire and level 4 can't be completed. But the first 3 levels are fantastic and the bugs are being worked on.

Well, technically, this isn't a source port, which is better. It would allow the engine to do more things than the original engine ever could. This project will really soar once it becomes open source.

The great thing about this project, it it interprets the original game's GOB files (level and textures), so all* the fan-made mods / levels work too.


* eventually, once the engine is completed.
