Hi. I recently found out a gate skip on d1_canals_08 that allows you to skip the gates.
I saw another skip, but i thought that is inconsistant.
So i came up with this:
Here is the download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/eq1ms6shveckc1g/d1_canals_08_boatless_gateskip.dem
And here is the pistol strat: http://www.mediafire.com/download/740m3dmm7aj2kl8/earlypistol.dem
I don’t really think that the pistol one is good for pros, but it is better for begginers, even you get the pistol 1 map later.
