Sorry, but due to budget constraints, the first build of ECWolf will only support Corridor 7.

Yeah, the greatest game ever made! :D

I can't wait to decorate... umm... Well, decorate something. :P
EDIT: Oh, and question about map format: It can still be edited in programs like ChaosEdit, right? Then it just have to be thrown in the .wad using SLADE? Or is there actually no .wad format... uh... (forgot the word)... something. Oh, right! Support.

Yes, with one binary. I can't really list all the features it has, but basically you can also expect mods that don't ship with an exe. :P

Here are the release notes if anyone is interested: http://maniacsvault.net/ecwolf/notes.php

Yes, it supports the binary map format. You'll need to use WDC to export the for insertion into a wad (every map editor has it's own format for map dumps, which is kind of annoying), but until you're ready to release a mod a gamemaps/maphead can be loaded just fine.

After reading your FAQ I have three things to mention:

1.First, are we going to need the original games to run this? Some stuff like Mac Wolf would be very difficult to come by.

2.Is there going to be support for SoD's Lost Missions (Return to Danger/Ultimate Challenge)?

3.BLAKE FRIGGIN STONE!!! Sorry, I had a fanboy moment there. I'll be definitely be more than happy to play a more refined Blake Stone AoG/PS.

The id Anthology came with a Mac disc which I believe has MacWolf on it. However, you'll notice that I say "I believe" that is the case because I have never actually been able to read the disc. The Mac I had when I bought the Anthology didn't have a CD drive and it was also the last Mac I owned. PCs just show the disc as blank and I haven't bothered trying to mess around with any drivers or what have you that might allow my PC to read Mac CDs.

It's a source port, not a ZDoom TC. Yes, you need the original games for their data. If you don't find Mac Wolf, you can still use PC Wolf. Which is great because Mac Wolf isn't supported right now anyway.

Yes. Even better, they have their own sets of actors and textures, so it'll be possible to merge both FormGen and Id Software things in the same mod without having to jump through too many hoops.

Other Wolf-Engine game support will probably be added in some update. If I'll finish other wolf-gine games maybe i may even be able to convert some Actors from them into DECORATE to save Blzut or other people work. :D

Sry for my English. D:

I also want to see BLAKE STONE 1&2 too!

Playing them on DOSBox isn't bad, but after played about one or two hours, it make my fingers and eyes hurts and must take a break. I just hope to play them with modern FPS style...

Well, just hope.
:P

Yes you'll need the original games. For the Mac version or whatever, I have the same stance Kaiser does with Doom 64 Ex: How you acquire them is not my problem. I recommend the id Anthology though. Legally I can't distribute the data.
BlueFireZ88 wrote:2.Is there going to be support for SoD's Lost Missions (Return to Danger/Ultimate Challenge)?
Like Gez said, yes and with a custom xlat you can use the original and lost mission resources simulatenously. I almost loaded them simulatenously automatically, but the different player classes kind of put a stop to that.
