I understand you are busy with your main project though :) I'd also ask Wildweasel but I'm just a newbie here and doubt he'd look into it and I'm sure he's cooking up another crazy mod and has moved on from "Doom Nazis!"

Sorry, I haven't really been working on anything for the last several months aside from minor, sporadic updates to a sounds pack for personal use that I'll probably never bother turning into a full mod.

Call it "The Smooth Sounds of the Weasel" if you do release it. :lol:

Anyway, if you happen to get bored and want to take a look into the compatibility, I'm sure many Doomers would appreciate it :)

Well, to be honest, WW-Nazis was always intended to be taken on its own, to be combined with map wads (especially Epic2) and not with existing Wolfenstein content. If such a patch does get made, I'm unlikely to be the one that makes it, but if it can be done as a simple add-on patch, I'd support whoever made it.

What I never liked about WolfenDoom is how the shotgun rate of fire was increased to look the machine gun from Wolfenstein, and it turned out into a unfairly powerful weapon. It would have been a way better idea to use the shotgun and replace the Shotgun Guy with the SS. That would also allow the Doom SS to be replaced with another regular enemy, and there wouldn't be Officers dropping chainguns...

I have also noticed the machineguns being OP in these addons. Maybe I can try compensating this by decreasing damage of single bullets. In many packs I already tried to change it a bit to the better as these weapons previously fired shotgun bursts in rapid succession. Ofc that made them ridiculously powerful, you would basically never use any other weapon as these are dealing one-hits all the time.

With DECORATE, you can change this to single-bullet shots, but then it's still about bullet damage and fire rate. Gonna try to find a satisfying balance in a future release without nerfing it too much.

Also there's one such effect that manifests itself into that guy in the chair at the start of Eisenmann. Not to mention some of the fountains are replaced with statues of the bosses, but they don't really do anything.


Oh neat. That's not too terrible. Kinda Wolfen fever dream. You can progress through levels normally? Like no issues with keys or whatever? Thanks for the reply too :)


No issues with keys for the most part. The only exception is the SoD Lost Levels and Revisited; the keys won't open the doors even if you have them. On top of that, Revisited has graphical errors too.


What? I've made them and played them several times from beginning to the end and I've never experienced any problems with keys. (using gzdoom rev. 1526). I haven't experience any graphical errors in SOD REVISITED. And there are very little errors in LOst Levels. I've no idea why NightFright had to use dehacked when everything was all right - keys were not flashing they were ok.

Maybe their Graphics Cards are old yet outdated.

Can you just not make the weapons as close as possible to the original Wolfenstein? =X

Most of the WolfenDoom addons don't use original Wolfenstein weaponry. I can try where it makes sense to do so, but in general I think it's better to just try to prevent players from using just one weapon because that's the only one they would ever need.

Just wanted to quickly note that halten.pk7 now works fine with the latest build of GZdoom. :)

I don't know if your aware of this but in v1.11 of the spear of destiny the lost episodes these skulls and bones was blocking many places that i was forced to noclip through please fix.

SoD: The Lost Episodes v1.12

Interesting. I really need to play this one day so I can see for myself if everything is right with it.

Anyway, I have removed the solid state for this actor (BLOOD_SKELETON) in the DECORATE code.

SoD: The Lost Episodes v1.12 (4.1 MB)

See if it works now. Important: You may have to restart the game and load the problematic maps for the fix to take effect, it may not work with existing savegames if you used v1.11 before.

Thanks a lot for the report! If you find anything else during your playthrough, be sure to let me know. I usually try to address showstopper issues like this one immediately. Later on, I will see what I can do about adding bonus stuff (sprite rotations, weapons etc) once I have more time for it again. ^^

In the first post, you can now find a direct link to the fixed addons available so far (Second Encounter 1.02, SoD Lost Episodes 1.12, The Portal 1.1). Additionally, I have updated the first mirror link as it appeared to be down.
