WolfenDoom Redux

As a Wolfenstein person, I always liked the idea of having Wolfenstein in an upgraded engine with a little bit more detailing.

However I've started fixing every mod in the WolfenDoom series lately. These include Original Missions, Nocturnal Missions, Spear Of Destiny and Mission Packs (or Lost Episodes as Caleb26's mod calls it). All of these upgraded mods are based off of NightFright's original patches, and plenty of improvements were built upon it. I included some version parities like "same weapons, same only-1-ammo-type, same HUD", a plethora of optimizations such as removing obsolete lumps and every possibly unused file, and improvements like better sprites, new rotations, enemies acting more similarly like in Wolfenstein 3D, sound caulking, no mandatory secrets... you name it.

I was also working on a Zandronum-compatible version of this mod that has more balancing and some other features to keep up some entertainment during gameplay, but it's postponed indefinitely for now. If the feedback is good enough I might start working on it.

These were not present in the original WolfenDoom releases either, to my knowledge.

Thanks. The SNES weapons never were in the original levels. They were only available on Mac and Second Encounter map packs.

Tell me your current IWAD? Maybe the addons you are using? Some more details? Can't make out a single issue until I get more information!

Here's a quick update. Me and ZikShadow are hunting down mandatory secrets on Mission Packs and overhauling the maps. The levels should be less frustrating to pass. Along that are a couple of other fixes and changes. Stay tuned for this update!

Check out this gameplay footage by ZikShadow!

Why are you changing original SOD and SOD Mission Packs ost to Wolf3d Mac and 3DO ost? There are only few tracks in MAC and 3DO versions and they get very repetitive after a short period of time.

Don't worry, I was just playing my music playlist in the background, the Wolf 3DO tracks included. The music tracks are still the same old ones.

I'm very glad I see another revision of the Wolfenstein 3D (and Spear of Destiny) missions. :)
I have spent so much time with Wolf 3D and Doom 1-2 games on my childhood and teenage age.
I will start to play the maps with a bit detailed environment when I have done the usual work routine.
I like Wolf 3D as much as the first Doom game(s). :)

Totally awesome and retrospective TC! And it's in whole package, and i love it! I see a few of neat geometric changes in some maps and it makes them so much lively. The Nazis' damage output is not too much punishing, and i now can say a goodbye to those turquoise colors for overall metal textures that bothered me too much.
Spoiler: But... I really have to give you some feedback.
Thanks a ton for good stuff there. I definitely enjoyed the whole series.
