SEPT - OCT 2002

 

OCTOBER 2002

Oct 31: Doomsday Released
Here's a shareware 1.4 Wolf3D set with original graphics sent in by Bernt Hansen. Originally made by Brian Larsen, Bernt has made a few improvements to most levels. All ten levels are new and the secret level is reached from the boss level. It's quite an enjoyable set, at least judging from the first few levels, and will especially suit those who like the original game.
Click here for the download. All files are included.

Assassination Update
I've replaced the map files in 'Assassination' (see Oct 25) with new ones sent in by Bernt Hansen. As well as changes to level three, Bernt has also made a few minor changes to a couple other levels.
Click here for the download. All files are included.

Trapped/Set Of Pics
JJ has made a set of three large size screenshots from 'Trapped'. You can see them
here.

Red Alert Preview Pic
Here's a pic sent in by 'The Man Who Knows' from the upcoming set 'Red Alert'. Not everything new is included in the pic.

Oct 30: Starship Troopers Demo Released
The Alien Fan has released a demo version of Starship Troopers. You can get it at
Starship Troopers Website or here. There's just one level and not all the new graphics have been done yet, but there's enough in it to show how good the final version is likely to be.

Oct 29: Trapped Released
JJ has released the shareware 1.4 set 'Trapped'. There are five levels, plus some new graphics and sounds. It has several 'Hans Grosse' on every level and is very difficult to beat.
Click here for the download.

Oct 27: Blastfire Update
Fredrik Stjernholm tells me BlastFire will soon have a new site. Also, 'The Fear of Magic' will be remade with new gfx, levels, weapons etc.

Oct 2002 Dome Award Announced
The October 2002 Dome Award goes to Harry Mass Senior for his TC 'The Hunt'. As this is the second time Harry has won the award, Parafriction has made a special version.

The Alien Fan Update
Here's an email I received from 'The Alien Fan':

"My earlier mentioned 'The Terminator' TC has been cancelled. BUT I have something far more cool in mind hehe. Take on the role of an MI SOLDIER. Arm yourself with a morita and knife and set out to kill some bugs.

--Enemies (So far)--

  • Arachnid Warrior (standard bug)
  • Hopper Arachnid (A Giant Flying Mosqitoe from hell)
  • Queen Bug THE BIG BITCH lol

--Weapons--

  • Knife (who needs a knife in a nuke fight anyway?)
  • Morita (Standard issue)
  • Morita Shotgun Attachment (pretty much secondary fire for morita)
  • Chaingun (Have fun - that's an order)

--Features--

  • Textured Terrain (aka if the planet is desert, you will see desert textures for the ground)
  • Skies
  • Unlike most Wolf3d games (or tc's as some call them), the monsters will have new coding
  • The hoppers will swoop down and try to kill you
  • The Arachnids with charge at you in packs (they will be very tough to kill. Like in the movie you will put about 20 rounds into ONE just to kill it)
  • Troopers (fake sprites) that stand guard at base for a more REAL feel
  • 3d Dropships (level Geometry)

Click here for a picture of an early version of the arachnid (keep in mind it may look better/worse to you becuz this pic is taken in wolfgl)."

Oct 26: The Road To Despair Update
Executor (formerly known as Viper) has sent me an update on his TRTD project. There's also a couple pics from his other upcoming projects.You can access it
here.

Oct 25: Assassination Released
Bernt Hansen has released 'Assassination'. This is a Wolf3D shareware 1.4 set with 'Lost Episodes' graphics and sounds. All ten levels are new and well designed. Some of the later levels have pushwalls that need to be opened to get to the exits. Overall, a very good set.
Click here for the download. All files are included.

There are more pics here.

Message to Bernt: I fixed a few things on level three which were preventing access to the next level. I tried emailing you about it, but the email rebounded. Let me know if you want anything changed. Brian.

Oct 22: Eat At Joes: Original Version Released
Someone pointed out that 'Eat At Joes' was not available on the Dome server. From what I remember, I couldn't get the new version to work but I just posted the original. There's 10 new levels and good cartoon type graphics, plus new sounds. You can get it
here.

Wolfenstein-City.

The Thing Demo Release Delayed

The Hunt Released
Harry Mass Senior has released his latest TC 'The Hunt'. There are 10 well designed levels (including a secret level). There are a number of graphics and source code changes, but the atmosphere of the original game is still there. It is difficult to beat - there are pushwalls on most levels which you need to open to find the exits - and there are bosses on some normal levels. Lots of action, and lots of mutants!! You can download it
here. Needs the registered Wolf3d to play as Harry has left out the audiohed file.

Redemption Released
The second release today from Will Hooper, 'Redemption' is a new set and has 10 very well designed levels and a new title screen. Although there are some graphics and sound changes (including a new boss), it will especially suit those who prefer the original game. The first few levels are easy to beat but it gets much harder after that. You can download it
here.

Oct 9: Galaxy Updates
Here's a message James Ingham asked me to post concerning his Wolf3D site:

"James' Wolfenstein 3D Galaxy is still working, but hasn't been updated for a while. From now on, I will try to do some work on it every week and post the site up once every 2/3 weeks. Sorry about the long time away. This year I have course work to do and I also have a job. It's hard to find space in between this for the site..."

SEPTEMBER 2002

Sept 29: MapEdit Project
Here's an email from Andrew Millward regarding his MapEdit Project:

"Hi, just to let you know that my MapEdit project has been renamed to MapEdit HB (short for Home Brew) You can download a slightly updated version at the Wolfenstein 3-D Bunker. Don't expect anything special yet as it is an alpha version. I will be adding a print map feature and a covert map versions feature. I will probably add support for Blake-Stone (like MapEdit 8.4 has) but probably not for the other games. I can't think of any think else to add yet, but if anyone has any ideas (as long as it's Wolf3d related) or wants to see a certain feature, please email me on andy@games-guru.com. I'll probably have to do some more research on Pascal to find out how to do certain things. I'm also learning it at college, and have picked the rest up by messing about with the source code.

Andrew."

Sept 28: Wolf3D Multiplayer Project
Martin Krysiak has sent me an FAQ regarding the Multiplayer Project. It's quite detailed and answers a lot of questions. You can find it

aken over from Brian Rowan in maintaining the Wolf3d Bunker. You can currently access it via www.games-guru.com/bunker. Andrew will be setting up the domain wolf3dbunker.com for easier access!

Wolfsite Updated
Here's an email I received from Guillermo Buteler:

"Wolfsite has another update. It has now a counter at last and the upload of sets has started, but they still can't be downloaded. Also, the Editing section has added the MapTips file, a text file with tips to design, make, improve, and present Wolf3d. This is an open forum so if you got any tips, you can send them to the wolfsite e-mail or use the submit buttons on the Editing section. Updated releases with new tips will appear when new tips arrive. More info on the page and stay tuned for the post of sets and downloads.

Meanwhile, I'm having problems with setting up a Read This! to my TC, Losing An As, please send help to gbuteler2000@yahoo.com.ar. Once this problem is solved the new beta (v0.99b) will arrive." Wolfsite.

Ryans Gaming Club.

Sept 2: Prisoner 666 Released
JJ has released 'Prisoner 666' which is for shareware version 1.4. There's only one level - mainly a large maze - but it's pretty difficult to beat. One pushwall (which you really need to win) is hard to find. Some of the graphics and sounds have been changed.

Sept 1: Castle Totenkopf Released
This is Wolf Skevos-Jones first TC. The levels are well designed with good layouts. There are many source code changes, including new enemies (not replaced ones or ghosts, but full 8-sided guards) and a couple new weapons.

here.

Save the Universe - Part One Reposted

Save The Universe - Part One again yesterday after it was pointed out that the original file didn't work. The one now on the server has been tested and is OK. For more info on this set, check out July 31 news.

AReyeP's 'Lost' First Add-on Released
Steve recently found his first add-on again (made in early 1993, and presumed lost for a long time) on a backup disk and has now released it. Having played most of it, I find it a very good set of levels with well designed layouts. And it doesn't look dated at all! There are ten new levels and it's for shareware version 1.0. You can get it at
AReyeP's and MCS's Wolfenstein 3D site (in the 'Other Stuff' section), or here. All files are included.
