Wolfenstein 3D Scenarios
(If you want to see my original Wolf3D page, visited over 100,000 times, in all its glory, click here.)
Once upon a time, I was a teenager attending high school. My favorite things were my Super NES, my Power Macintosh 6100/60, and maybe my family and friends, I guess, lol.
Wolfenstein 3D for Mac became popular pretty quickly after it released. It wasn't just a port of the id classic, it was also significantly enhanced. It had better artwork, it ran at higher resolution, it had all-new sound effects and music, and to top it all off, the full version was designed to accept additional levels. I created some of those levels, while listening to New York's 92.3 FM K-Rock in its prime. I then promoted them on AOL's Games Forum using my 14.4 kbps modem. Yep, those were the days. It's been about 20 years!
My scenarios were all released under the banner of WolfAddict Software, a company created specifically for designing and selling these add-ons. I didn't make a lot of money, but I did have a lot of fun. So...kind of like the games I make now =p
WolfAddict Software is long gone now. And in late 2006, Apple completely stopped selling Macs that were capable of even running Wolfenstein 3D for Mac. That was 10 years ago...do you believe it?
So I downloaded the SheepShaver emulator, grabbed the Mac OS 8.1 disc that came with my old Power Mac G3, clicked a few more buttons, and now I have this:
This is a package containing the emulator, some documentation, a ROM file, and a 160MB hard disk image. The drive image has Mac OS 8.1, Wolf3D, and my full collection of scenarios pre-installed. Download it, follow the directions, and you'll have just traveled 20 years back in time. It's not particularly stable--the emulator quit on me a good few dozen times while I was preparing this package--but if it quits, just run it again. It'll work eventually, heh.
The contents of this ZIP file are copyrighted by Apple, MacPlay (Interplay), id, and others. Please note that it is almost certainly quite illegal to download, but as it is no longer possible to buy or use any of this stuff, I doubt that Apple, id, Bethesda (current publishers of the Wolf franchise), or anyone else will care. If someone sends me a C&D, I'll take this down, but I doubt that I'll ever see one.
If you have trouble using it, e-mail me and I'll try to help you out. Enjoy this blast from the past.
