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.
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.
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).
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.
Yesterday marked an interesting milestone, with the release of a mod that was originally announced over 20 years ago!
Operation: Wasserstein is a new ECWolf mod by gitlance, which has been made to be a loose “re-telling of the Nocturnal Missions, woven together with the Eisenfaust super-soldier programme”.
The game was originally announced on Lance’s Wolfenstein Page in the Nineties, and has come a long way since the original concept. The screenshot below on the left is from the original version shown on the now-defunct website, with the one on the right being from the final release.
The final version of Operation: Wasserstein spans twenty levels, with a plethora of new enemies and bosses, as well as some new weapons to kill them with.
Beyond The Grave came out a little over two years ago , and today ThunderEnema has released a new version!
The Anniversay Edition of the gothic-themed game adds an assortment of new items, levels, enemies and more, alongside “improved control” options. The manual, credited to Jesse Stevens, is really well put together as well!
Beyond The Grave (ThunderEnema’s debut in the community!) is a Wolf4SDL game, and is a standalone title. Full credits and details are included in the download, courtesy of the creators.
