So I can choose even 8 bit and 11 khz? I thought the q2 engine handles just 16khz and 16 bit.
You know what, that's a good question. I haven't really done much sound work for Q2 at all. I know the max is 16 bit and 22KHz. I'm pretty sure I've run across 8-bit sounds being used before, but I don't know about 11KHz. I'm pretty sure they'll work because there's the sound-quality setting that makes them play at either 11 or 22.

Hey Zorius, When is this map going to be finished?
I see you got a lot of expert advice from the pro's over at Backshooters, so it seems like you would be finished the map by now. Man, you sure got a lot of responses over on Backshooters. I've never seen that many replies for a beta test map. It's almost like it was planned that way or something... he he...
All the people ask when will be the Unholy Shrine released? The answer: When it's finished... ;-)
The truth is that I was disappointed with the lights at all, so I have thrown all of them in the thrash. I will relight the whole level, with a totally new style. Sorry, but I absolutely agree with Panzer (as far as I know he said that): You can release a map just once; re-release is impossible, so it has to be perfect. I know what I want, I know what I do. Guys, You have to wait a bit more, but I can truly tell, that the wait worth it. So now I'm collecting influences and the power to the last fight... and I'll finish it at last. Another small thing: Ive hurt my right wrist making weight-lifting... :-\ And it really pains so I can't use mouse which makes editing impossible. I'm a pharmacist, and I've tried almost all the remedies and magic syrups, but nothing really helped...but now, since last weekend I feel it's maybe getting a bit better now. I wrote this post for one hour... It's a great opportunity to take a bit rest and to systematize my thoughts. And then with fresh new power I'll make the run finishing the map finally. And to You LeRay: after we all get to know the results of your contest, I will release my contest with the finished Unholy Shrine... So this autumn won't be boring I think.
Thanks ALL YOUR PATIENCE MY GOOD FRIENDS!!! Let me have a bit more time, don't force me to release an unfinished product.
The download link sure doesn't work. Try my new page under my profile or go back from, the thousands of shot urls... Noone tried to take a look at that site which holds those pictures? funny... And about Redchurch's Awaken unit: sure I know it, and it MAY inspired me, but when I started this map I didn't even have it in my mind! I just used spikes in my map, and I put them on the roof and they are similar? Maybe... if somebody use a light fixture on his map that's also a similarity to sg, isn't it? No guys, my map really has nothing to do with that unit. Exactly I can tell You the truth: if I have to search an inspiration, we are closer to itif I say Quake3. Because I never really liked q3, but nowadays I play a lot with it, and I think I don't tell You a big secret if I say the level is inspired by Quake3... Anyway, good observation LeRay!
