Amiga port of Wolfenstein 3D
« on: December 11, 2010, 07:11:03 PM »
Hello.

There is a port of Wolfenstein 3D on aminet, that i have never been able to play.

I have installed all Wolfenstein files in the directory (Wolf.dat, Wolf.1, DEICE.EXE) but nothing happens when i double click the icon (have tried different tooltypes and 2 CPU 030/060).

SnoopDos does not give any clue about the problem.

Does someone have seen this port actually work yet?

I got a Wolf3d port working on my A1200 030/50 it was dead slow though. Way slower than the Doom ports.

Well, it may be good enough for my 060.
Is it the same version as on aminet? Any clue on how to use it?

Sounds obvious but have you tried increasing the stack size?

I remember you have to do that for the Doom ports... just thought it might be the same for Wolf3D too.
Machines:
- A1200, Blizzard 1260 w/ 64MB RAM, 1.2GB HD, PCMCIA WiFi, AGA w/ RGB Adapter, OS3.9
- Pegasos I, G3 600Mhz, 512MB, Radeon 9200se, 80GB HD, AmigaKit WiFi Card, MOS 1.4.5
- Mac Mini, G4 1.5ghz, 512MB (1GB Soon), Radeon 9200 64MB, 80GB HD, OSX 10.5 (Leopard)
- PCs, Laptops... *yawn*... :D

Thanks a lot for those informations.
I have managed to get those very files and the game can lauch now (but freezes when the demo start, i am working on it) :)

However, i don't have the c2p dir after installing Wolf3D from aminet.
I guess it stands for chunky to planar driver. Where did you get it from?

It's working now. I had to delete the PC config file (it's written in the manual).

About 15-25 FPS on AGA 060.

However, no sound or music.

I have no RTG on this A1200 but at launch i have a requester with all modes from all my installed monitors to choose from, so it might also work RTG if RTG is installed.

On AGA it is really playable.

Pity there is no sound though.


EDIT: according to the manual, it works with CybergraphX and Picasso96.

You can get those sorts of frame-rates Quake 1 on a fast 68060.

Indeed, i have almost the same results from Quake 1 and Doom :)

However, i have always prefered Wolfenstein 3D to FPS full of scary devilish monsters, because i am not afraid of germans :D
