thats cool that Azreal has those flames dosent surprise me since hes technically unused that means hes unifinished like how Thorne is missing voice clips. Yes I think originaly you were supposed to upgrade your ghosts differently and the gothic mansion was rebuiilt into the ghoul room its very obvious since it was pretty complete when it was cut also notice some odd things like the towers near the back? they look unfinished and so do the stairs but in the Class Of Spook Em High scenario they look much better and the whole level looks finished so evidently they cleaned it up and the ghoul room itself is much like the remenants of the Gothic Mansion. If anyone is curious I made a video a while back where i was able to bsp swap the ghoul room and Class Of Spook Em high and i was able to look around the whole level free camera style
A bit off topic here, but you mentioned that they remade ghotic mansion into ghoul room after they cut it. How were you supposed to upgrade your ghosts before? Did they all have max powers?
it's hard to say. I know that most of the ghosts types was still in early development. Basic ghosts attributes was not between 0-20, and a lot of haunters was remaked, or totally deleted. I think they a had a problem with completion such amount of levels and later on in development they had an idea, to visualize better that you are controlling "team" of ghosts, so they remake the orginal level to Ghoul Room. After they done that, they plan to use this level as Tutorial(like in Haunting 101), where all of the standard ghosts will be locked(They all have talk animation).
