For all having the 'missing dlc1.wad file' error, here's the fix:

1) Go to your TEA directory
2) locate file 'tea.wad' and make a copy of it in the same directory
3) rename the copied file to 'dlc1.wad'

And voilà, it miraculously works!
Remember not to just simply rename the 'tea.wad' but to make a copy of it in the same place and then rename the new file (so there will be actually two same files in this dir but one renamed). Don't know why, but the mod is using the 'tea.wad' for the first half of it, and then looks for the 'dlc1.wad' for the second half, while contents of both files are in the 'tea.wad'. Strange.

It's a good mod but widows 7 seem to have huge problems with openGL i have a lot of lag issues making it hard to play, it slows down when ever i get fired at. So it's not a prob with the mod itself but with openGL

Not my style, and definitely challenging, but it is well detailed and the amount of work put into it shows for itself.

I'm just not into stealth games, and the amount of deaths and frustrations kept on mounting until I shut the mod off in anger.
