RetroArch is a program that lets retro gamers emulate all sorts of gaming platforms from within one frontend, including various Nintendo and Playstation platforms.

Very heavily inspired by the Playstation 3, it seems.

Along with emulators, RetroArch also has a select number of older and 2D games ported specifically for it’s Libretro API, including titles like Tomb Raider and Quake.

As of today, ECWolf is now an integrated part of RetroArch’s growing library!

This version , which the official announcement post credits to a man named phcoder, has some minor differences to the original version of ECWolf to fit with the Libretro API, but should play largely the same.
It is still a work in progress with many features still to be added, but is currently playable in Windows, Mac, Linux and Android builds of RetroArch (RetroArch seems to be available on a total of 24 different platforms and systems, from Windows to Playstation 2!)

This is the first I have personally heard of RetroArch, but it looks really slick.

Thanks to Thomas, we now have access again to the SDL ports of Ringman’s mods!

The mods were originally created in 2005 and 2006 respectively as part of a contest hosted by Ringman himself, which saw modders try to create a full Wolf3D game from scratch in just a week!
Each has it’s own very unique style that has made them popular and memorable despite the imposed development constraints.

By porting the mods to Wolf4SDL, they are now playable without DosBox, and will run without the need for any extra files (and with bugfixes!).

These ports were created by Andy_Nonymous back in 2015, but the original downloads have since gone down. Thank you, Thomas!

It’s not often that the Mission Packs to Spear of Destiny get attention, so it’s very disappointing to see we missed this little nugget!

ReddimusVonAggrevatii released this graphics pack back on the 9th of August 2019, which was made in an attempt to liven up and make the Return To Danger Mission Pack a bit more visually interesting.

It changes a variety of items in the game, including the pill 1-up item, and the ammo box. For a full list of changes check out the DieHardWolfers thread!

The graphics mods requires a copy of Spear of Destiny: Return To Danger (Mission Pack 1) to run, but will work with DOS, Wolf4SDL and ECWolf/LZWolf!
The Mission Packs are included in most digital purchases of Spear of Destiny, including on Steam.

Happy birthday, Rise of the Triad!

Today (Or yesterday for some) marks the 25th Anniversary of one of the best games ever built on the Wolf3D engine, Rise of the Triad!

A bit has happened over the past year, with Civvie finally making a video about it (above), Kaiser announcing his development of a new source port, and of course, the mods that came out for it!

To celebrate, why not:


One of the best things about Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was ‘Wolfstone 3D’, an alternate-universe take on Wolfenstein 3D which flips the roles, turning Hans into the protagonist, fighting off the Resistance (and Blazkowicz!).

Thanks to Blzut3, you will be able to play Wolfstone using ECWolf very soon! (And sooner if you don’t mind some conditions!)

His new tool will require an installed copy of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to work, but will turn the 60 level mini-game into a standalone mod file to use with ECWolf!

It is still a few weeks away from having an official stable release while important finishing touches are done, but if you’d like to compile it yourself to test, or read the short explanation of how his tool works, Blzut3 has made it available on his bitbucket account.

Wolfstone.pk3 will work with the latest stable release of ECWolf, but it is suggested to use the latest development version to fix possible issues that may occur with the Read This! function.


Release: Thomas’ Spear of Destiny

Thomas Weiling has released a map pack for Spear of Destiny! It includes 21 levels of classic (and challenging) levels for the game. Be careful!

The mod includes just the map files, so to play you will need the full version of Spear of Destiny to play. However, this also means it will work with any engine for the game (from DOS and Wolf4SDL to ECWolf and LZWolf!)

AstroCreep has released some simple variations of some of his Demolition mods, titled “Thi-Time”. Included is AstroCreep’s Spicy Wolf3D Demolition and Kowtow Demolition, as well as the original Wolf3D Demolition.

Thi-Time changes your character to Thi Barrett from Rise of the Triad, making the player a little faster and adding some new graphics and sounds. Apart from that, the mods are largely the same as the original versions (Packed with new weapons, enemies and destructibles).

The mods require the latest version of LZWolf, and a registered version of Wolf3D to run.

Note: While the original Wolf3D Demolition is compatible with many mods, games and map packs, some of the changes in Thi-Time may result in visual problems if played with Super 3D Noah’s Ark or MacWolf.

MetaLLion066 on ModDB has released a simple mod for ECWolf and LZWolf players, which replaces the game’s music with the songs in MIDI format.
The change in quality of the music is immediately apparent, but creates quite a different feeling.

The download comes with BAT files to run everything, or just drop the WPM.pk3 over your ECWolf or LZWolf exe.

Unwanted Mission Pack is a new ECWolf mod that started as a basic 12 level map pack, but ended up with a few new additions including some new enemies, art, and sounds.

The mod is made by Orka, who just a few months earlier brought us Operation: Nazi Slayer, one of the first published LZWolf mods!

Unwanted Mission Pack requires the latest version of ECWolf and a Registered copy of Wolfenstein 3D to run.
