Kreml 3D

Published by Zombie on 2023-10-31.

In these days of Wolf4SDL, LZWolf, and general advancement of modding, projects that exceed the original Wolfenstein 3D in features and scope are reasonably common.

Back in 2003 however, modding using changes to the source code was still in it's infancy. People were still fumbling around discovering things, and major features like floor and ceiling textures were still new.

So when Kreml 3D was announced, it caught immediate interest from the general community.

Reports of whole-system crashes and other instabilities due to FloEdit were not uncommon, which caused a lot of frustration amongst the modding community.

This proved a point of inspiration for many to pursue creating their own programs. Among those people, there were "Ripper" (aka Moritz Kroll) and "Andi" of Chaos Software.

My Grandad

Published by Zombie on 2023-05-10.

When it came to gaming, my Grandad probably had the biggest impact on me as a kid.

I remember being very young and making a trip to his house with my parents and very young brother, only to be blown away by what would now be a fairly "meh" sort of a game compared to nowadays, but I enjoyed thoroughly as one of the first I ever got to play.

Wolf3D.net Beta - One year in

Published by Zombie on 2023-03-16.

It's now been a year since the new, creator-oriented Wolf3D.net went live, and I am delighted with where we are now.

When Wolfsource (Now Wolf3D.net) first started in 2019, it started with an aim to provide a platform for fans of Wolfenstein 3D and other Wolf3D games to chat and find Wolf3D content. Providing a News Website and a stable Discord, Wolf3D.net filled a hole that had been present for several years, and was well received.

Also known as -Helvete- or simply Helvete, Castle Helvete was to be an ambitious game by ChiefRebelAngel that teetered on the edge of completion before as is often the case, real life obligations intervene.

Originally announced in July of 2004, ChiefRebelAngel came in strong for his first game announcement, showing off his artistic skills in an unofficial sequel story to Wolfenstein 3D, taking place after the third episode of the game, "Die, Führer, Die!".

sbarprot: Advanced HUD customization in LZWolf

Guide Tags: ECWolf/LZWolf, Intermediate
Engine(s): LZWolf

While latchcfg works in both ECWolf and LZWolf, the latter offers an alternative called sbarprot that allows for advanced statusbar/HUD customization. Using sbarprot, displaying information typically on the statusbar is a lot more flexible than utilizing the latchcfg method.

This guide will take you through how sbarprot works, and some example changes that can be made using it.

Rearranging the status bar

Guide Tags: Beginner, Coding, ECWolf/LZWolf
Engine(s): DOS, ECWolf, LZWolf, Wolf4SDL

In Wolfenstein 3D, the status bar is a static image, over which the stats pertaining to the player and game are displayed. Of course, in a different project, this design might not be relevant. Maybe the game has more than 4 keys, or the author doesn't want to display weapons, or simply wants things in different places.

Removing the Lives system from Wolf3D (Beta)

Guide Tags: Coding
Engine(s): DOS, Wolf4SDL

A holdover from arcade games, Wolfenstein 3D is one of many games that utilize a "Lives" system in it's game - each time the player dies they lose a life, and when they have used up all of their lives, the game is over. The choice of using Lives is a design choice, and of course everyone has a different vision. What if you don't want to use them in your game?
