comments: You are proud of this mod but even with the Total Pack 3.0 there is still a bug in level 8: a missing button at the beginning where two tiles fall down, but there is only one button where they fall: only a gate opens, and another not!! This bug there was also by playing it with the previous total pack!!

In level 8, you need to kill a guard on the raise button (trick 31).
If you kill a guard on the raise button, this will keep the gate open.

the gate that doesn't open is the one upstairs, after the first guard. I saw a video on you-tube where that gate opens after have fallen the two tiles downstairs, but I never been able to make it open doing this.

I just finished the level, so it is possible.

Do you play it with the total pack or not??

Total Pack 3.0 uses the file that this website provides.
It downloads the package from this website.

In fact, two years ago I used the zip for playing the mods, and even with that the gate never opened. For being more clear I'm talking about gate in the screen with cordonnees S3 L4 R2 A0 B9. I guarantee you that it remains closed and it's impossible to finish the level taking the other way, cause then there is a moving tile that doesn't drop; on must crushing over it from above to make it fall down. When I played it with the zip on my old computer I changed it with apoplexy to put that gate already open, so I could pass throw there and make the level in the correct way, but now with the new computer there is only the total pack working the mods, and in this that damn gate still remains closed. I don't understand why only to me!!

Nice lvls, but:
Lvl 3 cant be finished: missing switch to open the first door; lvl 5 cant be finished: a loose tile to much; lvl 8: loose tile isnt loose at all; lvl 9 looks like a copy of last lvl in the ruins from pop2; lvl 10: final door opener out of reach; lvl 11: begins with schredd graphics and is another copy of original pop2 (last lvl cavern); lvl 12b: a loose tile too little

however, nice work - i spend 2h having fun with this :-)
