    The Lost Relic Released

    The Lost Relic Released

    Mega Luigi and Mario Maniac have released 'The Lost Relic'. The 30 normal levels and 4 secret levels are extensive and well designed and decorated. Most of the graphics and sounds have been changed, but the game keeps the Wolf3D feel very well. Code changes include many extra types of guards and bosses, artifacts, transporters and textured floors/ceilings. The well detailed helpart is done very well. Although virtually everything from the original Wolf3D has been changed I feel this would still suit those who prefer the original game. Made in SDL and is therefore Vista-compatible. Seems like a very welcome New Year present. Available here.

    Hmm. Downloaded this again today, this time on my PC, and it works. Weird, since my PC actually has less memory than my laptop...

    I like all the advanced coding changes. With that said, too bad they didn't disable the spacebar/hit wall sound. It's my personal annoyance.

    This doesn't work for me. It gets through the get psyched, and when the level is supposed to appear, it ends abruptly. It fails on Vista (SP2, with 6 GB RAM) and Win98se (with 512 MB). Of course the error files are both empty, so that's all I can say is happening. Tried several downloads, nothing seems to be corrupt. Help!

    Happened last night on my laptop too Andy. Weirdly, I downloaded it on my PC (xp os) which is less powerful and it works fine. Don't know what to tell you. Except, Major Bug problem on launch day....

    It was very slow on my end, it showed the wrong colours (I assume those weren't supposed to be there), and I also didn't get any further then the Get Psyched screen. I have Windows Vista.

    I tried to open it with XP and 7... All the colors are messed up (except in the signon-screen)
    and game crashes in GetPsyched-screen...

    Havoc gave me a tip to get it working: run in windowed mode ( --windowed ). Now it works fine for me in windowed mode on my Win98se machine, but still won't run in Vista for some reason. At least I can check the mod out. Would prefer fullscreen mode of course.

    Indeed, on Vista it doesn't work. I have opened it with Chaosedit, but now the 3D-edit doesn't function great anymore. It shows all the wrong sprites for the mod I'm working on now. Does anyone perhaps know how I can change this back to normal?

    I believe you should check the changes in ChaosEdit config-file...
    Also try installing another ChaosEdit and then moving your mapobjects/palettes
    there...

    Yes. I believe the same thing happens if you open up Spear of Destiny in ChaosEdit. It uses a different palette than wolf. So, if you then open up a wolf based mod your sprites will all be jacked up. Need to change the palette back to wolf palette..

    EDIT: Go to Customize then Config, then WL6 extension. Change palette back to wolf3d

    Fixed! Had to just start up a Spear based mod, and then all the objects showed up correctly. Smile Thanks for the help anyway! Smile
