Feb 21: WolfenAliens Website
Wes Desjardins has a new website called WolfenAliens. News and downloads of all his TC's are there. Wes is currently working on a new project called 'Operation: Aliens'. There'll be 6 weapons (rod,double pistols, M41a pulse rifle, chaingun, rocket launcher and M240 Flamethrower). Also, there'll be 20 seamless levels and new music.

Feb 18: Projekt Vertilgung Update
Here's a message from James Ingham regarding 'Projekt Vertilgung' :

"Zach released PV and said there won't be a phase II. The version he released also had a few bugs in. I'm going to finish the project while he works on others...

Firstly I'm currently (in my spare time) making Projekt Vertilgung V1.1 which is basically the same but a few new features in the levels/bugs fixed/secret levels go to the right place/etc... maybe new music and I might change the graphics for the miniguns cause I dont like the ones at the moment.

There will also be in the download a new manual in html format which I think is quite good (I'm 50% done on it). I will also update the readme in the game and I might finish the .bat file which was included but I don't think stories and items in that are necessary. I will send some screen shots in soon and tell you about new updates..."

Thanks James for the above info, good to hear from you again.

JJStein: Resurrection Pics
JJ has sent me 3 pics. The first is a Desktop Theme and the last 2 are from his upcoming TC 'JJStein: Resurrection'. They may take a while to load as they're larger than the one shown below. You can see them here.

Feb 16: Den Of Evil Released
DTrade has released 'Den Of Evil'. There are 11 levels, Spear graphics, plus lots of sounds and title screen changes. It's well designed, but difficult to beat. If you like lots of dungeons and pushwalls then you'll enjoy this. Click here for the download.

Dome Award - February 2003
This month's award goes to Wolf Skevos-Jones for his excellent 'Project Eisenritter' TC. As this is the second time Wolf has won this award, a special version has been issued. Due to the Dome revamp, the awards have got a little behind. Later add-ons will be considered early March.

Wolfen-terror Released
Matte Software has released 'Wolfen-terror'. There are 5 new levels and lots of graphics changes. Some come from Blake Stone/Spear etc but many are new. There are also many sourcecode changes, new sounds/music, helpart and endart. The new title screen is shown below. It all blends well together. This is the first part of what will be a 3 episode set. Click here for the download.

Feb 13:The Golden Episodes Released
Here's a message from Ariel Castañares concerning his latest add-on release:

"Greetings to you all, people from the community, keepers of the wolfy flame. Today I am releasing 'Wolfenstein 3-D - The Golden Episodes', an add-on which I worked on during a long time. Its development did consume a very big part of my spare time, but it took a lot of other people's too, who directly contributed in the making of the game. The set as it is now would have never been possible if it hadn't been for them, but also for others who indirectly contributed, by letting me use their own add-ons' work inside my game.

These people know who I am talking about, but for those of you who haven't been following my set's development, there is a credits section inside the game where you can find out who these great wolfers are.

I've had a lot of fun while making this add-on. I really hope you all have fun too while playing it. It is all yours. And please, don't you doubt for a second and write me an e-mail if you feel like giving me your opinion on the game, asking something, or whatever; I'll be happy to read anything concerning the set. My current e-mail address is spaceraker@hotmail.com.

Nothing left to say, thanks a lot for reading up to here. I leave you now to Brian's comment. Take care!

Norberto Ariel Castañares."

Thanks Ariel for the message. 'The Golden Episodes' has 60 well designed levels with lots of cool graphics and sounds changes. There are many source code changes too and I particularly like the text messages at the start of each episode. A lot of effort has been put into this set. You can download it here.

Colonial Marines: Trailer Released
Wes Desjardins has sent me a preview trailer of 'Colonial Marines'. As mentioned previously Wes has teamed up with The Alien Fan to help with this upcoming TC. You can download the trailer here.

Feb 12:War Zone Project 4: High Stakes Released
DTrade has now sent me War Zone Project 4: High Stakes. There are nine good levels. It's fast moving with plenty of action and a lot of pushwalls!

Feb 8:Castle Totenhammer Pics
Here's a pic from Joe Robinson's upcoming TC 'Castle Totenhammer'.

There are several more here.

Feb 6:Best Of BJ Info/Pics
Daniel (dugtrio17) has sent me details of his upcoming TC, which will probably be called 'Best Of BJ':

"It features 9 weapons, tons of new enemies, an armor feature (not in the screen shots), a feature where you can press M and use a portable medkit (holding up to 10 at a time) to get 5 health, a pickup silencer, breakable objects, exploding barrels, and a feature soon to be implemented where medics revive dead enemies... Not to mention a neat surprise that happens occasionally with mutants... mum's the word on that one :)... It will be episode based, with the player never having all 9 weapons at once.

The weapons are: (1-4 same), 5 is a silent sniper rifle and will be story-related (which, strangely works better at long ranges than from up close. Intentional, of course), 6 is a Gatling Rifle type weapon, which is based on an actual weapon, 7 is a pressure rifle (also story related) that fires shots that can pierce multiple enemies, 8 is a missile launcher (which will, once again, be strangely story-related), and last, but not least, is my one and only brand new, original flamethrower. It actually shoots a stream of flames and hits enemies that get in the stream. It also features some nice new art (seen in the screen shots).

The armor feature has now also been implemented, but I can't send screen shots of that because I am in the process of rearranging the status bar. It is based on a tutorial in the Dome, but with MANY modifications and complications. For example, when attacked by a flamethrower guard, you lose a lot of armor.

There's a lot more pics here.

Wolfsite Revamp/New URL
Guillermo Buteler's site has been revamped and moved to a new url. There are sections on editing and links, plus info on the upcoming add-on 'Project: Firestar'. It's now at Wolfsite.

Feb 4:Textured Floor/Ceiling Tutorial
DarkOne has posted info on Wolfenstein Forums (look in the Wolfenstein Revolution section) about a tutorial for textured floor/ceiling effects. It's also at Textured Floor/Ceiling Tutorial on DarkOne's website.

Feb 2:Area 51 Update
Due to a change to Windows ME, 'Area 51' has been delayed. Luke has since reinstalled Windows 98 and tells me the set will be released soon. There are 10 levels left to do.

Feb 1: Rise Of Purple One Delayed
Chris Pappas tells me his upcoming add-on 'Rise Of Purple One' will be delayed until further notice. Chris is now working on a new add-on based on the leisure suite 'Larry Games'.

Flames Or Rockets?
Here's an email I received fromTexZK:

"Hello, Brian!

I am TexZK, a young programmer of Wolfenstein 3D. I'm only 14 years old so I'm not a good programmer, but I have an idea. Programmers with more experience than me (like DarkOne) can create new weapons: the rocket launcher and the flamethrower. I think they can create weapons like them, so I want to ask you if you can publish this e-mail. I tried to compile a modified code with these weapons, but I haven't got the right experience and there were a lot of mistakes.

In my opinion it's a great idea: why have got only weapons with direct shoot? Shall we have a weapon with flames or rockets?

I hope to find an answer,


Comments, anyone? TexZK's email is gnegno88@libero.it.
