Good work zico.

The persistent debris is funny. :)

But why are the different laser types gone in the weapon selection preferences menu? :?

I needed to remove them since they caused several bugs in Demo playback (secondary weapons displayed in Primary box) and weapon cycling. Probably some day I will re-implement this, but this won't work with the current code, so I need to rewrite some parts of the code and I don't want to break compabilites at this moment..

The automap works in secret levels properly for Descent II. ALL IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD.

Ahh it's not a big problem, I should get more used to manual primary weapon selection anyway.

And I agree about the site. Much better now. ;)
