    Wolf4SDL with PC speaker sound emulation

    Post by ljbade on Sat Apr 10, 2010 5:53 pm

    Hi,

    I have created a version of Wolf4SDL that now has PC speaker emulation based on the code in Chocolate Doom.

    Could people please test it and tell me what you think (bugs/issues/suggestions etc.)!

    If it works OK I will see if I can submit it to the Wolf4SDL author (as this feature is on his TODO list).
    Also anyone know if the Wolf4SDL guy is still around? No updates to his website since 20008...

    Otherwise I might create a fork on Google Code where people can implement any bug fixes/tweaks/features etc that they want in the codebase...

    Here is the compiled file: (built for Activision Wolf3D)

    Chocolate Doom?

    Post by stathmk on Sun Apr 11, 2010 8:22 am

    What exactly do you mean by Chocolate Doom? I've heard of it before. Is it a source port?

    In StopAndThinkStein, Mazenstein, or in a different Wolf3D mod that I remember that I played the same day it had the same sounds from The PC Speaker.

    Chocolate Doom is a source port of Doom to SDL that keeps everything 'original' with no mods/bugfixes so it plays exactly like the DOS 'Vanilla' Doom. I would say it is one of the best Doom source ports available. See here http://www.chocolate-doom.org/

    My version of Wolf4SDL plays the PC speaker via your normal speakers as the real PC speaker these days is rare. Most factory built computers have dropped it to save some cash, most custom PC cases no longer feature it, not to mention laptops don't have one. Also Windows 7, Vista, and 64-bit XP prevent access to the PC speaker also.

    Please try the executable and tell me if it sounds authentic enough! To test it go into the the "Sound" menu and set the "Sound Effects" to "PC Speaker", "Digitized Sound" to "None", and "Music" to "None".

    Also it looks like Wold4SDL is not dead as the author is still making changes to the source code, last one was from middle of December 2009. He has fixed the VBL = 1 by default issue as well so VBL = 0 by default with command line override.

    I tried the Wolf4SDL exe with the Activision version of the full Wolf3D and didn't find any bugs. I played it without the music and with the PC speaker sounds selected. They sounded authentic. The computer has Windows XP.

    It doesn't work with the Apogee Version.

    Post by stathmk on Sun Apr 11, 2010 6:22 pm

    I know you said it must be used with The Activision version. I tried it with The Apogee version today just to see what would happen and it produced a weird error message when it wouldn't work.

    Apogee version

    Post by stathmk on Mon Apr 12, 2010 8:25 am

    The Apogee version of it works with it, but not in DOSBox probably because it's an SDL game.

    I think his name is Ripper. He is also responsible for ChaosEdit if I remember right. I think he showed up on DHW a while back. Would be nice if he finished ChaosEdit...

    Submit to zophar.net?

    Post by stathmk on Thu Sep 23, 2010 12:45 pm

    Leith,

    Since these are emulator files, then do I have your permission to contact somebody from zophar.net to have them post your PC Speaker emulator files for The Activision and Apogee Wolfenstein 3D? Please answer me in 7 or 8 days because I think that Im going to forget after that time. Also tell me what name you want to use to give yourself credit.

    Im going to submit other emulations or simulations that Ive found on the internet to zophar.net. jpb6891 told me about the LOST Swan 108 minute computer emulators for PC and Mac at http://www.webcyte.co.uk/ . If that web site is perpetually down and you want the files, then tell me and Ill upload them to my web space. Im also going to submit emulators that Ive found for the Antikythera Mechanism computer. The Antikythera Mechanism is technically the first calendar computer except for the Stonehenge.

    I found the source code patch that I sent to the Wolf4SDL guy if anyone wants the source.

    I should also mention that you apply the patch to the latest SVN source code from here:

    svn://tron.homeunix.org:3690/wolf3d/trunk

    Still having trouble finding the Wolf4SDL guy!
