* Adlib (synthesized) sound and music now work 100%. I want to thank Tantric for his work on the SDL port for the wii. The SDL_Sound code is awesome!
* Everything works w/ the exception of music and adlib (synthesized sound), your regular sound (gun shots, opening doors) work.
+
* I've done a little tweaking with the IR turning. I've added a "DeadZone" variable to the engine which discards input from the controller if it is a certain amount of pixels from the center of the screen (this number is customizable in the misc options menu). The idea behind this is that turning your character using the wiimote doesn't appear so sensitive and jerky. Thanks [[User:Arikado|Arikado]] for this idea.
* Just noticed now right before I started writing: saving games work, loading doesn't... I'll fix that soon...
+
* Fixed the typo in the cheat menu, Thanks Roobix.
* I don't know what else needs to be fixed so I'm letting everyone test, pm or talk to me on irc if you have any suggestions...
 
* Due to the nature of the engine, it can only be compiled for one version of the data files at a time, so I'm posting the engine along with the shareware files since that's what it's compiled for at the moment. I eventually want to write a loader for each version of have the engine decide dynamically how to load the data files but that's for another day.

Each version of the game needs the engine compiled for that specific version. If you download Wolfenstein 3D using the Homebrew Browser you will be getting the shareware version of the game. If you own the full game, please go to this project's [http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/wolfenstein3dwi sourceforge page] and download the version compiled for the full version game. Copy your game files that end in WL6 to the folder that your boot.dol is in. Also, if you own Spear of Destiny you need to download the Spear of Destiny game engine from the [http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/wolfenstein3dwi sourceforge page] and copy your game files to that folder. I'm trying to merge all three engines into one but it will take quite a bit of rewrite so I've been putting it off.

Wolfenstein 3D for the Wii.

Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny are now up to version 1.3

About the release

  • Adlib (synthesized) sound and music now work 100%. I want to thank Tantric for his work on the SDL port for the wii. The SDL_Sound code is awesome!
  • I've done a little tweaking with the IR turning. I've added a "DeadZone" variable to the engine which discards input from the controller if it is a certain amount of pixels from the center of the screen (this number is customizable in the misc options menu). The idea behind this is that turning your character using the wiimote doesn't appear so sensitive and jerky. Thanks Arikado for this idea.
  • Fixed the typo in the cheat menu, Thanks Roobix.

Important note on multiple game versions

Each version of the game needs the engine compiled for that specific version. If you download Wolfenstein 3D using the Homebrew Browser you will be getting the shareware version of the game. If you own the full game, please go to this project's sourceforge page and download the version compiled for the full version game. Copy your game files that end in WL6 to the folder that your boot.dol is in. Also, if you own Spear of Destiny you need to download the Spear of Destiny game engine from the sourceforge page and copy your game files to that folder. I'm trying to merge all three engines into one but it will take quite a bit of rewrite so I've been putting it off.

Controls

Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny support wiimote in a sideways configuration, wiimote + nunchuk, and gamecube controller style controls. These interfaces are selectable in game with classic controller being an option for a later date (if I ever buy one :) )
