night vision glasses
I like the new levels, but I think I might be stuck.
I played through 3-1, but couldn't pick up the night vision glasses because my inventory was full. Then I got into 3-2, and there's a room I can't get past because it's dark and I can't see. And I can't find any glasses in 3-2.
Then I replayed 3-1 and found the backpack. Only it doesn't let me keep the night vision goggles when I finish 3-1.

I've had a couple of people run into that same problem. It's a flaw in the level design that I didn't notice before. If you miss the backpack on your first run through 3-1, you're in trouble. Because when you replay a level, you don't get to keep the stuff you pick up. And I didn't think to add any night vision goggles to 3-2 because I assumed the player would already have 3 pairs coming out of 3-1. Oops.
When I get back from the dentist, I'll tweak 3-2 to add a few night vision glasses. And I'll revisit 3-1 to see if there's anything I can do to make the backpack more obvious/accessible, short of revising the entire outdoor map. I'll try to get that updated and uploaded today.
In the meantime, I recommend that you don't overwrite your save game at the end of Part 2. You'll need to pick up from that point again after I make the updates.
Right now, you can load up your save game from the end of Part 2, and pick up the backpack on your first run through 3-1. The backpack is on the roof of the first building, right above Agent K and Agent X. That way, you can play through the rest of Part 3 today and not have to wait for me.

I had that problem too. But I started over from the end of part 2, like you suggested, got the backpack, and was able to play through most of part 3. I'm trying to figure out how to beat the boss at the end. Don't want any hints, tho - I'll figure it out. This is a good puzzle!

I just issued an update to fix this level design problem. First, I added some new items to the start of 3-1, to serve as a "bread crumb trail" to the backpack. Second, I added 2 pairs of night vision goggles to Chapter 3-2, in case you miss the backpack and goggles in Chapter 3-1. That should prevent anyone from getting stuck.
