So what does the GCSWRE 'advance-release'
version look and feel like? Initially, it looks exactly like the DOS GCS,
as does the 'GCS Paint' program. That soon changes when the 'Test
Level' option is selected, and the Windows GCS editor shows itself.
The first time a level is tested with the GCSWE, you will need to select
a video mode option that works best for you, on your particular
computer. This only needs to be done once, after which you can just
select 'Test 3D World' to test your level. From this windows portion
of the editor, you can add or modify such things as textured floor and
ceiling panels, lighting effects, and the games view port size.
Multiple enemy types per level.
The GCSWRE 'advance-release'
version comes with a 34 page bound manual that takes you through the basics
of the new features that make up this amazing Pie
in the Sky product.
