Well, it's finally here!! Pineapples in various sizes.

Ken Rohrer has sent me a Wolf Scenario for the Mac
I don't have a Mac computer and so I've not been able to
check it out myself.
Rather belatedly (due to work by both Parafriction and
myself on our upcoming add-on), our award this time goes to
Ryan de Haast for his outstanding add-on 'Rising Evil'.
Although there were several new sets released recently, this
one stood out for its all round quality. You can get it
Alva Message/New Midi
Juan J. Alva sent me the following email
As you know
that even though my site has been wiped out from Homestead
because they got greedy and decided to charge me, my
compositions are still intact and around. And my friend
Brian will keep them alive in his site. I have just made
another addition to my already recognized collection of
Wolfenstein transcriptions from the game. And let it be
known that the copyright of each and every single song
belong to Robert Prince, and I only take credit to have
transcribed them. Anyhow... I am joining the U.S. Army and
pursue a great career in Computers and music, and want you
to know that even in the Military I will continue my musical
works on Wolfenstein.
for making these midi's is only for your musical enjoyment
alone, and I will continue to provide you with that
enjoyment so that you know how Robert Prince knows how to
rock through others.
THE WOLFENMANIACS AND THE
pride in his work and his brother's,
all the info Juan - and good luck with the new career. You
can download 'Tiptoeing Around' here.
Juan's earlier midi's are available from my extras

Kuki sent me some news on 'Project:Weltuntergang'. Work
on the maps was delayed due to school work, but has now
restarted. There's 5 maps to do, so the add-on will be
completed soon. Here's a screenshot from a motorcycle
Here's an email I received from Dennie Masser regarding
playing Wolf 3D on Windows XP.
reading your New users questions when I
saw that you did not know how the games would run using,
Windows NT/2000/XP: unknown. (anyone?) I can
only tell you about Windows XP. The games seem to work fine
except that there is no music, and you don't hear certain
other sounds like, picking up ammo or when you press the
space bar. You do hear doors opening and secret
Dennie - that's similar to what I found on Windows ME. And
here's a follow up from Elaine:
running Me then upgraded to Xp Professional and if you use
the pc speaker sound option then you can hear ammo being
picked up and the space bar etc + you get the door sounds
etc out of your speaker--but there is no way to get music...
One thing I did notice though--on a totally unrelated
topic-- I could play rise of the triad on Me but NO GO for
with this thread, here's a reply from Peter Johansson,
problems are simply due to Microsoft's "automation" of the
Windows virtual machine start from dos.
user few to none options to start the synthesizer part of
the sounds of Wolf3d. I can start XP and ME directly to dos,
so it works like 16 bit Windows 3 where you must type win or
have win command in autoexec.bat, so it ought to be possible
to start the sound card synthesizers. Have personally no
interest to waste my time on a "product line" that disables
users possibility to interact in processes.
pathetic to see how consumers in practice cut's of their
main extremities of interaction while cheated up by
Microsoft's attempts to apply super computer technology on
simple PC architectures, O.K. if they've done it on IBM ASI
machines, but don't think they are ready to spend 300,000,00
$us on each guinea pig out there.
With my Best
another reply, from John Burnett:
read the Wolf3d on WinXP about running the Wolf3d on Windows
9X including ME, let me talk about "Windows 2000/XP
Unknown", I've been playing both Wolfenstein 3D and TC's on
Windows 2000 without any problem for four months and I'm
still playing. But It would not work with sound nor music
under windows - if it will work depends specific of sound
card what you have. My sound card brand is Avance AC '97
Audio for Via Audio Controller on mainboard and it doesn't
support this by Wolf3d. I tried on windows 9(all) includes
DOS 6.22, and it doesn't work either. I wish Id Software
would update this game to work on all sound cards including
new ones. WOLFENSTEIN 3D is number ONE in First Person
Shooter Games than all of other games. I been playing
Wolfenstein 3D since 1995.
computer has a Sound Blaster Card installed and works with
sound and music while playing. Not on new mainboard w/audio
controller as above.

God I gave a copy to Brian), and start back on the game
again. If anyone wants to help me with episodes 2-6, I will
be happy to add them to the credits, and give them a section
to work on. Of course, I have to finish this game of Mortal
14: Wolftendo Add-on/Pic
Here's a pic I made from a shareware Wolf3D 1.4 add-on

quite effective. The title screen has been updated too. You

changes and new levels. Here's just one of the pics I

27 Demo News
Sector 27 Demo willl be released sometime near the end
of the week. The Demo will have nine levels and maybe a
secret one. Many new source code changes have been made.
Here are some of them:
hazards such as steam pipes
cameras, if they see you they will send out
puzzle feel on the higher levels
takes place in the inner command bunker at the base. You are
trying to shut down the communications system so you can
have support later. More on the story line will be released
in a read me file.
four levels are office levels - mostly like the original
game with perhaps a puzzle here and there. At levels five
through seven is where the source code changes really take
effect. In these levels you can not just blast through some
areas or you will be completely cut off by the security.
Areas where you must be quite are marked by steel walls with
signs on either side of the door leading into that area.
leave those areas you will know when it's safe to fire your
weapon again because you'll pass between two steel walls
without signs. Your knife can silently take care of guards
in quiet areas without alerting the security. However
officers cannot be killed quitely even with a knife. Level
seven ends with you shutting down the system. Level eight is
you escaping level seven and trying to get back to the
ground level. Level nine is level one and you must escape
from where you came.
Fgkjrujkuejrn for the above info.
6: Hitler's Maze Of Death Released
Although it's just one level, Hitler's
Maze Of Death
is quite extensive. And the only original actor is Adolf
himself. The ammo allowance at the start may look quite
generous but believe me you'll need it all!! Read the text
file before playing as the game can freeze if you let the
title screen time out. The author is Patrick Gray.
James Ingham tells me James'
Wolfenstein 3D Galaxy
is back online.
Hitler's Revenge Bug
Having received a missing key query on episode 1 level 5
of 'Adolf Hitler's Revenge', I checked out the whole set and

28: New Sector 27 Demo
Fgkjrujkuejrn has sent me a 2 level demo of a new
version of Sector 27. The first level will suit those who
like the original game, but the second level is a small test
level which has many of the new features. Here's a list of
the changes made to the game so far.
enemies such as chain gun SS guards and drone guns
such as exploding oil drums and laser grids
panels that switch things off.
particularly liked the exploding drums. Here's a pic I

the knowhow to get everything finished. I don't have c++ and

things to worry about. Please talk to your associates and
see if they are willing to pitch in, or at least post my
plight and email address in a forum for me! I'm drownin'
I need the
sounds for my TC properly converted (I got a problem with my
sound programs to clean up before I can download cooledit).
I need someone who knows how to replace the title and
endgame graphics of SOD without them looking like crap (the
colors always invert or something). Also, anyone who can
edit text/source code in general would be great.

groups, and I can't join any for some reason. Volunteers
will get mentioned in the ending credits. My email is

'Wolf3D Odyssey' is a shareware v1.0 set that AReyeP

designed levels. The various ways in which the guards are
used are particularly effective. All files are included in

Peter Johansson has sent me two Spear map sets dating
from late 1995, but I haven't seen them before. They are
both by Robert S. Bradbury. The first is named

(screenshot shown below).
I found the
'Mission One' set easily the better designed of the two.
Both sets have all 21 levels changed, and need the
registered set to play.
Peter also sent me an alternative VSWAP for the full
'Spear', put together from various sources. I found the
'Bat' replacement of the 'zombie' the most interesting
feature but there's lots of other changes!! You can download
