    Help with ECWolf!

    Post by DropTherapy on Mon Sep 04, 2017 10:40 am

    this may be the wrong place to post this, but i'm having a hard time running ECwolf. had gotten it to run before, but now I can't. Upon properly extracting the files, inserting ECWolf and it's other files into the folder with the data, and then running ECWolf, I go through the first two screens.
    The third screen, áinstead of being the splash screen with the title, was a mostly blue background with an X in the bottom right corner. The next screen was the same blue background color, but with text so big that I couldn't read it. After that, it crashed. Any ideas?

    You're using a pre 1.4 version of Wolfenstein to run ECWolf. In order to convert the 1.2 graphics into 1.4, use the patch utility at the bottom of the post to update all files to 1.4. (If included in the directory, the .exe will also be patched.)
    Wolf3D Patch for Windows
    Wolf3D Patch for Mac OS X
    Wolf3D Patch for x86 Linux based Operating Systems

    That worked, but I also have a port of ECWolf for my android phone. Is there a way to patch that version, too?

    You could (Hopefully...I'm not familiar with android devices) patch the files, and then upload them to ( for example) Google Drive, and then download them onto the phone.

    I changed the thread title to the more descriptive, "Help with ECWolf!" áI don't think we need several threads titled, "Help!"

    Sigma64, thank you for helping DropTherapy.
