    Other Downloaded levels/A Doll's House

    Post by Airbagdiva on Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:55 pm



    Hello,

    I have 2 questions:

    1) I do not know how to open the downloaded new levels for Spear of Destiny and Wolf 3D - I have purchased the full versions of the game for $15.00 each through ID. I am an unsophisticated end user and would like to enjoy more levels of these 2 games, but I don't know what to do to get them from my Temp files.

    2) I downloaded A Doll's House and enjoy the game - to a point. I need a few hints - even cheat codes - I am ready to abandon this game because I cannot make any progress. I looked for a walkthrough or hints, but can't find any.

    Thanks for any help!

    Does this help?

    Welcome to the forums!

    Please go to My Computer. Click on Control Panel. Click on System. Click on The General tab. Please tell me what it says underneath “System” and underneath “Computer.”

    Getting them from your temp files? Do you have Firefox? Then copy the files from My Documents\Downloads after they are finished downloading. I think that with Internet Explorer that you can still directly download the files into whichever directory that you want. You need to download WinZip. Go to download.com and type in WinZip. Or are you using steampowered.com?

    Patch Wolfenstein with the W6 Patch 1.1 or W6 Patch 1.2 from http://www.wolfenstein3d.co.uk/utilities.htm if necessary.

    If I were you, then I’d copy and paste the wolf3d and spear directories. Then I’d name the original directories wolf3d_backup and spear_backup in case something happens.

    Well, if the levels are Wolfenstein 3D Super Upgrades from http://www.3drealms.com/downloads.html , then you need to go to http://wolf3d.darkbb.com/search?mode=searchbox&search_keywords=Upgrades&show_results=topics and I don’t remember how to do it correctly.

    If the files are for Project X, then you must unzip the music files (.ogg files) into the music folder.

    If the games are made by Gary Acord, then you may need DosBox from Dosbox.com . Drag and drop the .exe or .bat file for the game over the unzipped DosBox logo.

    If the files are SDL (Compatible with Windows Vista and 7), then you can’t run them in DOSBox.

    To run the “goobers” cheat parameter, open the game in DosBox and then exit out of the game, but not DosBox. Then type in “wolf3d –goobers” in the DOS emulation. When you start a game, hold down ILM to activate the cheat codes. For The Spear of Destiny, do the same thing, but do “spear –debug” in the DOS emulation. I don’t think that The Spear of Destiny uses ILM.

    If you have a very new PC with too much speed, then there are programs to slow down your computer only when you play earlier computer games. I don’t know much about them. Can somebody tell me more?

    If you’re playing Lego Wolf 3D, then I don’t know how to help you because I think it uses a faster computer than what I have.

    If it’s an add-on for Check Quest, Doom or Ultimate Doom, or Doom 2, then look here at http://www.wolfensteingoodies.com/doommodsandclones/w3dindoom2/w3dindoom2.htm and there’s loading instructions.

    I don’t know if you’re playing WolfenDoom By Laz Rojas and aPEX for Doom 2 for Amiga, but I think the directions are at the bottom of http://www.wolfensteingoodies.com/doommodsandclones/w3dindoom2/w3dindoom2.htm

    I don’t know how to help you with Wolfenstein 3D files for the Macintosh. I don’t have a Macintosh anymore. You’ll need Basilisk II or Sheepshaver. I don’t know very much about Basilisk II or Sheepshaver from http://www.macintoshgarden.org/guides .

    I don’t know how to help you with Wolfenstein 3D in other computer games: http://www.wolfensteingoodies.com/wolfensteingoodies/ocge.htm

    I haven’t played A Doll’s House yet.

    Tell me if things still aren’t working.

    Re: A Doll's House

    This is one of Paal Olstaad's mods. His excellent games emphasize puzzle solving and I would not recommend that a "newbie" to Wolfenstein play them. Once you are familiar with Wolfenstein 3d, then by all means, go for it!

    Hints and manuals for most of Paal's games can be found at his website: Poet's Hint Manuals

    If the hint manual is unavailable, he may respond to e-mail inquiries.

    For a glimpse into Paal-type gameplay check out this YouTube video: Wolf-Extra III - part I 100%

    stathmk - I have not tried yet - To my delight, I discovered Spear Resurrection and Spear End of Destiny - full games that I am enjoying and can access easily - but I printed out your instructions for accessing other levels on my old PC (I use a Mac as my main computer now) and expect I will dig in when I have finished EOD. Thanks again.


    Andy - I am not exactly a newbie to Wolf3D - more a newbie to certain functions of my PC and downloading other levels. Mr. Olstaad's game is intriguing, but not satisfying. If I can't get just a small amount of reward, I am not inclined to continue to play. A hint manual would help (he's got a "coming soon" type announcement on the site you referenced). I am a person who likes to use hints judiciously - to get to the next element of gameplay and will have to wait for a nudge in the right direction before I attempt "Doll's House" again. Thanks for taking the time to compile those resources. (I can't believe I just spent 20 minutes watching a Youtube video of someone else playing a video game.......)

    Slowing Down PC Speed

    I finally remembered the programs that slow down the faster computers for the older games. Go to http://www.3drealms.com/downloads.html and “Miscellaneous Downloads” is at the bottom of the page. Go to “Older Downloads (which have been supplanted by DOSBox).” You are on a Macintosh and I don’t know if these will work for it.

    Right now, I’m working on a manual. Would you like to help out with a Macintosh project sometime? I’ve been looking for somebody who has a Macintosh and Wolfenstein 3D for an easy Macintosh project because I have a PC. Go to The Wolfenstein 3D Macintosh codes at http://www.gamewinners.com/MAC/Wolfenstein3D.htm , print them out, and memorize the groan warp code and ledoux invincibility code. Download SheepShaver and Basilisk II from http://www.macintoshgarden.org/guides if necessary. Then look at http://www.macintoshgarden.org/games/w?page=2 for Wolfenstein: Awesome Resurrection 4 and Wolfenstein: WolfEdit, http://lazrojas.com/wolf3d/index2.html for more Macintosh Wolf 3D add-ons, and http://www1.linkclub.or.jp/~clubey/ for even more Macintosh Wolf 3D add-ons. Not all of the scenarios have the number of regular levels and secret levels listed. You can warp and use invincibility, or WolfEdit to note the number of regular levels and secret levels, and what levels go to secret levels. Then email me this info at stathmk@yahoo.com . I’ll update http://www.wolfensteingoodies.com/wolfenstein3dmodsatoz/mac.htm with the numbers of regular levels and secret levels and a spoiler page about how to get to secret levels. Or if this sounds like too much trouble, then you don’t have to do any of this project. I don’t have a Macintosh anymore.
