And Concorde 6 the pilot from Vertigo, who apparently joined CED or SRAD (forget which) after he quit working for Dravis.
What I thought about the retail version of that mission was that the only reason they actually let you into the armory was that they mistook you for Concorde 6; since the containment team that gives you access technically considers you an enemy (even though you never see them; the Dispatch at the beginning mentions it).

Almost all of D3 Demo 1's level was like what turned up in the retail version of D3 level 3.

I'm more than aware of this. But Demo's level still had many radical differences from the final product, and it was those differences that I was talking about.

How do you know this??  It isn't mentioned anywhere as far as I'm aware, unless it was something thrown into the books or something.

It's pretty clear though that the sound used is a leftover from the demo, being exactly the same and all.
Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good or even useful for anything but they always manage to put a little smile on your face when you give them enough of a push down the stairs.

There are hints in the briefing and in the level; and in the end it was pretty obvious to me.

I'll have to try it again sometime then.

I went and found download links to the D3 demos on Hunter's Descent 3 Sector and since past experience tells me that Hunter is usually pretty good at maintaining his sites, I have no reason to think they won't work.

In fact I downloaded the first demo, and it downloaded fine, so the links work, but after the file's downloaded, it won't run setup properly enough to install. Of course, I am trying to do it on a Windows 7 machine, so there may be an incompatibility issue or something of the such. In the meantime, I'll take the file to an Windows XP machine and see what I get there, but just FYI in case anybody else encounters similar issues.
