    Wolfer Profiles Thread
     
    The original Wolfer Profiles are at http://www.wolfenstein3d.co.uk/profiles.htm .  I want these other profiles to be in a thread so that you can update it yourself if you change jobs or etc.  “Anything else?” & “Post 2 pictures of yourself” are now added.  Please don’t get too crazy or controversial with these profiles or I’ll delete it.

    When did you first get in touch with Wolfenstein?:  The week that the shareware Wolfenstein 3D came out in 1992, a family friend gave us a copy of the shareware Wolfenstein 3D floppy disk.

    How did it come to a membership of the Wolf Community?:
    These are about the first 8 reasons off of the top of my head:

    1)  In 2009, when I had heard that The Dome webmaster Brian Lowe's files have a size limit of 1.5 megabytes, I knew that I could store larger files on what would become wolfensteingoodies.com. 
    2)  I knew that Brian said he was a senior having a hand problem with what he thought was chronic fatigue syndrome.  That's another reason why I thought that I might have to eventually be the one to have Wolfenstein 3D mods emailed to for sorting out.
    3)  Wolfensteingoodies.com was going to be a big part of my after-college web portfolio since I majored in Computer Graphics Technology in college.
    4)  I also wanted to collect Wolfenstein 3D mods in Doom 2 such as the ones made by Laz Rojas & mods in other computer game engines.
    5)  I also want to go back to Wolfenstein 3D art, animation, and C coding.
    6)  I enjoy being a moderator at wolf3d.darkbb.com.
    7)  I want to scan Wolfenstein 3D memorabilia & other projects.
    8 )  Since I was a child, I thought that it would be cool to make a Mario game, Wolfenstein 3D-style game, or Doom-style game.  Now I can.

    What in the community are you most proud of? And of what the least?:
    Making friends and eventually making a medieval or Greek Mythology Wolfenstein 3D mod would be what I'd be proud of.

    Any words of wisdom for the readers?:
    Be patient & first look at the tutorials before releasing a mod.  They are under "Editing" at http://www.wolfenstein3d.co.uk/ .  For Heaven's sake, don't plagiarize ( http://wolf3d.darkbb.com/n3449-mod-makers-who-plagiarize-any-more-will-be-banned ) or submit a mod of randomly generated levels.  I'd look forward to new graphics, sounds, resources, & coding in your mods.

    Anything else?: Does anybody know where Tris is at?

    When did you first get in touch with Wolfenstein?: 

    1993. My dad had the old shareware version on our 8MHz 386SX. I remember asking him if I could play it, not knowing what it was. It completely blew me away the first time I played it. I spent hours, not having a hint manual or map editor, discovering every nook and cranny of Episode 1. 

    How did it come to a membership of the Wolf Community?: 

    In 1997 I finally acquired the full six-episode registered Wolf3D set, which renewed my interest in the game after having become bored with only having Episode 1. It was early 1998 that I had the crazy idea of looking the game up on the Internet, where I discovered Gary Ragland's old blue Wolfenstein 3D page with several sets for download and some editing tools. It was like a dream come true. Ever since the beginning, I always dreamed of making my own levels. The first mod I played was Temporary Insanity followed by the Wolf_CC1 series. After that, I made my own first set which was called Wolf3D_60. I would hardly recommend that set today (in terms of level design its everything NOT to do), but I thought it was great back then and was very proud of myself when I sent it to Gary Ragland and he posted it on his page. I followed it up with a Spear set called the Lost Fortress and then another Wolf3D set called Domination, which in my opinion was my first attempt at actually decent level design (though its still not that great in retrospect). 

    In 1999 I launched my own site, Barry's Wolfenstein 3D Page (the precursor to the Wolfenstein 3D Vault) and released Armageddon. I followed that up with the Road to Neuschwanstein in 2000. 

    What in the community are you most proud of? And of what the least?: 


    Most: Finally releasing Passage to Hollenteufel as well as the level design quality of my upcoming Atomprojekt. Also proud of my classics Armageddon and The Road to Neuschwanstein, though replaying them now I can't help but see their flaws compared to my more recent stuff. 

    Least: I was a bit negative towards certain mods, level design styles, and certain people on the Wolfenstein 3D Vault back in the day and I regret that. I regret giving away the Wolfenstein 3D Vault and abandoning Blitzkrieg. Also, coming back then disappearing and never releasing Wolfenstein Forever in 2008-09 after hyping it up. 

    Any words of wisdom for the readers?: 

    Don't map when you don't have inspiration just to get something done as it will show.
