JUNE 2002

June 30: Spear Desktop Theme
Kuki sent me a Spear Desktop Theme package. There are several available for Wolf3D but this is the first I've seen for the sequel (or more correctly - prequel), and it looks pretty good. Anyways, you can get it
here and it'll be added to our extras page soon.

Wolfenstein Cabin Is Back

June 29: Hitler's Worst Hour Released
Third in a series of map sets by Patrick Grey, this one has five new levels on episode five. Again, there's a lot of narrow passages and the levels are not that large but what's there is done OK. You can get it
here. Needs the registered set to play.

June 2002 Dome Award Announced
The June 2002 Dome Award goes to A. Acquinucus for
Ragnarok. Although there's no new graphics or source code changes, the quality of the levels are very good. Needs the registered set to play.

June 27: Wolf 3D: Zero Hour Beta Released
Martin Krysiak has asked me to make available his
Zero Hour Beta. Please check it out if you wish and report any comments or bugs to Martin at muad.dib1@wp.pl. Details of the new TC were announced yesterday, but I've since played far more of it and I find the level design and the new walls impressive. There are some secret area floorcode errors but Martin will fix these in the next version.

June 26: SpearMP Released
These 21 maps for the full Spear set date from 1994 but I've not seen them before. The author is Mike Pascale and are very well designed. Similar in style to the originals. You can download it
here. Needs the full 'Spear' to play.

Sodmet12 Released
This is far more difficult than 'SpearMP'  also released today. It's similar in style at times but there are more bosses and keys are often well hidden in secret areas. There are 12 normal levels, plus 2 secret ones. I'm not sure who made them all, but the first 4 were done by Butch Nordstrom though they've since been modified. You can download it
here. Needs the full 'Spear' to play.

New Site
Cory Carr has a new Wolf3D site called
Over The Wall. It looks well designed and has a lot of sections including game history, maps, and photos. RTCW is also featured.

Wolf 3D: Zero Hour Beta
Martin Krysiak sent me the following info about his upcoming TC 'Wolf 3D: Zero Hour'.

"Once again, you are B.J. Blazkowicz, and you have to destroy the German sect known as Teutonic Knights. Here is list of features (for BETA version):

  • 12 new levels
  • New boss: Trans Grosse
  • New enemy: Sect Member
  • Changed visual look of Officer and weapons

  • New help art / end art

But this is only a BETA!"

Thanks Martin for all that info. Looking forward to checking out the beta!

Operation 88 Pic
Fredrik S. released the following pic from his upcoming TC 'Operation 88'. You can see more pics at Fredrik's site
Blastfire Entertainment.

June 25: Trickstein (v1.0) Released
Another set of levels from Patrick Grey and, as the title suggests, there are a lot of trick effects this time. There are five new levels on episode four, including a very hard to find secret level. Lots of pushwalls and narrow passages. No new graphics or sounds. You can download it
here. Needs the registered set to play.

June 23: The Nuremburg Projects Released
An extremely difficult set which Sam Feichter put together in 24 hours. The 60 levels were made using the creator program and there are a number of imported graphics and a new title screen (shown below). There are many bosses on every level though there's a lot of ammo/health too. You can download it

The Final Solution (v3.0) Source Code Released
Parafriction has released the source code for 'The Final Solution (v3.0)'. You can get it
here. Please remember to mention it in the credits if you use it.

June 22: Wolf Reborn Updated
Zach has sent me an updated version of
Wolf Reborn. This is an alternative set of graphics and sounds for the full version which is ideal for map sets that don't come with new vswap/audio files. Some of the changes in this version are a new status bar, updated graphics (including giving the SS his original cap) and a new, extensive readme (.doc). The map sets are not supplied. I used my own Wolfbel2 maps and they came out well - the original atmosphere is still there.

Spearmpixsod Released
This set of maps made in 1998 are for the full Spear by 'MP Entertainment' (Maarten Pinxten and his brother Roel). There are 21 levels and all are of a high standard. The first looks the same as Maarten's 'MpSodLev' but others are different. You can download it
here. Requires the full 'Spear' to play.

Gorenstein 2 Update & Title Screen
Sam Feichter sent me the following news update and title screen for 'Gorenstein 2':

Gorenstein 2 Title Screen"Hey all! Sam again. I have the new title screen done. I like it a lot. Also, I am redoing a lot of GFX. New Josef Hitler planned. Awesome GFX. Episode 2 upgrade starting.

That is all.

Sam". Thanks Sam for the info, click on the pic for a larger version.

Project Verdammt Demo Added
James Ingham's one level demo of 'Project Verdammt' from May 2001 has finally been added to our add-ons lists! Although it was on the Easyspace server, the only link to it was from a news item when first released. Thanks to Zach for pointing this out. For those unfamiliar with the demo, it has a number of new features such as increased health/ammo/lives and two chainguns. As the main purpose of the demo is to show the chainguns, the level design is fairly basic (though the opening scene looks pretty neat). You can download it

Hitler's Resurrection (v1.0) Released
Patrick Grey's first set of maps for Wolf3D. There are 5 levels, including the secret one. What's there is done OK but apart from the first level they are pretty small. No new sounds or graphics but will suit those who like the original game, especially with the short download time (filesize is only 4.22Kb). Needs the registered set to play.

You can download it here.

ps - this Patrick Grey is not the one who made 'Hitler's Maze Of Death'. (There's a slight difference in the surname anyway but I thought I'd better point this out to avoid any confusion).

June 20: Project: Weltuntergang Patch
Kuki sent me a patch for his 'Project: Weltuntergang' TC. It fixes a bug in e3l3 which had too many objects. The full version available on this site has also been updated. Download the patch
here. Full version here.

The Final Solution (v3.0) Posted
Jack Ryerson has pointed out that Parafriction's later version (v3.0) of 'The Final Solution' was not available on the Dome. Thanks Jack, this has now been posted and you can get it
here. I'll update the add-ons page soon. This version has 20 well designed levels and many are different from those in the earlier version. The new music, extra graphics and effects are pretty good too!

Sam Update
Sam Feichter sent me the following update concerning 'Gorenstein 2':

"Alrighty here's the news: Gorenstein 2 has been started up again. The Klobb is being replaced by the Moonraker Laser Omega. So, the weapon list is: Knife, 9mm rifle, Moonraker Laser Beta, Moonraker Laser Omega. Working on stuff right now. That is all.


June 14: Ragnarok Released
This set of maps called 'Ragnarok' has been released by A. Acquinucus and contains 30 new levels (though the first level has a lot of the original one in it). They are quite extensive and of a high standard. There are no new graphics and sounds but those who like the original set will find this pretty good. Ignore the orange sky in the pic - I used a different exe to play it! Needs the registered set to play.

You can download Ragnarok here.

June 12: Wolfenstein 3D Forums
Just to remind everyone that the forums are now at Chad's site. I've just changed the links on the main Dome pages and will try to get to them all changed within a few days. The link is
Wolfenstein Forums. The old forums are at Original Wolfenstein Forums, but as these are now obsolete please post on the new ones.

June 11: Sam Feichter Is Back
After a break from the Wolf3D scene, Sam Feichter is back! Here's an email I received from Sam today:


Gore 2 will have no new source, although I will keep it so you can play it without Wolf. And, when the source is finished, then Gore 2 Special Edition will be released. Also, go to my site to see my new comix and the first official FWWA (Fort Wayne Wrestling Association) site!


Thanks Sam for the info. The new comix and FWWA is on Sam Feichter's Site.

June 9: Operation: 911 Removed
This set is no longer available on the 'Dome' after complaints from Luke Strauman that most of it was taken from one of his sets without permission. There was also a complaint about 'Crap3D' (which used Op 911 as a base) though this wasn't available on our servers.

June 8: Gottspear Update
Bobby Bucksnort tells me Harry Sr. is co-authoring the Wolf version of the set as it will feature levels done by him. There'll be music cuts from Metallica for some of the Boss levels! Here's the titlescreen.

On a different note, Bobby's The Mutant Co. website now features 'DoomWeb'. Many editing programs and wads can be downloaded from there.

June 5: New Site
Here's news of another Wolf3D site. It's by Nirvanaron and has the lengthy title of
Nirvanaron1985's Super Cool Site of Coolness!!.

June 4: Guild Of Darkness Released
Tetraarchangel has released the first stage of 'Guild Of Darkness'. There are ten levels, some with very large rooms. The level four maze with a seemingly endless number of doors is quite effective. There's a number of new graphics and source code changes. The speed of the actors' has been massively increased and there's a health/ammo maximum of 999. There's a manual (with the storyline etc included) which is well presented.

You can download it here. It's also available from the Guild Of Darkness Website.

Reinstaad Final Version Released
There are eleven levels in this action packed final version of 'Reinstaad' for Spear from Bobby Bucksnort. All are very well designed and there's also many graphics/source code changes. Don't bump into the 'For Wimps Only' sign or you'll get Ubermutants galore! You can download it from
here, or from Bobby's site at The Mutant Co.. The full version of Spear is required as Bobby has left out the audio files for copyright reasons.

Kyle has sent me a set of 4 pics from his upcoming set 'Operation Murder Hitler'.

You can see the complete set here.

The Fear Of Magic Released
This new 9 level TC is by Fredrik S. The levels are well designed and there are some nice graphics. The game has a medieval feel to it - sort of like in 'The Heretic'. Here's Fredrik's description "
Instead, of being the usual wolf 3d addons that has to do with WWII, this is a Heretic/Hexen type of a game! You are in the old middle ages, as you fight your way forward, and being attacked by skeletons, wolves, warlocks, and zombies...! Use your weapons; the knife, the fire magic, the light magic, and the wizard wand!"

You can download it here. Fredrik has a website at Blastfire Entertainment.

Wolfenstein3D Archive/New Maps
I found this site on Google and has a lot of info on both Wolf3D and RTCW. There are sections for the PC and Mac. There are 2 single level maps available for the PC which I've not seen elsewhere. 'Maze' is a fairly large level, but has a number of 'guards in a trance' if you enter one area by a pushwall. Apart from that it's a good level if you like mazes. The second map is 'Hell' - it's nicely done but not that large. Read the enclosed text file regarding setting up the maps. The full version of Wolf3D is required for both map sets.

Wolfenstein 3D Archive - comprehensive site for both the PC and Mac versions with info, codes, images, links, downloads, and levels.

Wolfer Of The Decade Award
Today is Wolf3D's tenth birthday and to celebrate, Jack Ryerson has given an award to me for services to the game. Thanks Jack, it's appreciated.

You can read more about the award on Jack's WOLF-3D PAGE.

Projekt Vertilgung Update
Zach Higgins sent me the following update on
Projekt Vertilgung:

"The only things left to do in Projekt Vertilgung is ONE level, a few graphics here and there to clean up, some sounds (under control now), some bug corrections, and music. About the music I don't really need new music necessarily but just a new order. I'm pretty sure James can do that but my sound doesn't work for Wolf so I don't know exactly what all the music sounds like. If someone would send me or tell me a site to get all the tracks in Wolf3D (and SOD would be nice) so I can listen to them and decide I would be greatly obliged (not mentioning credit in the uh....credits :-P). I should be releasing PV BETA to the beta testers soon."

Thanks Zach for the above info.

Wolf3D Topsy Turvy
Here's yet another set of graphics from Fred Kenny. This time the actors and gems have been swopped around. There's also some new wall designs. The maps supplied are from Wolfbel3. You can download it
