    Hello fellow Wolfers, let's write code together!

    Post by lazd on Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:46 am

    Hey all! I'm lazd, a coder (github.com/lazd), FPV racing drone designer (falconmultirotors.com), and retro gaming nerd. I used to play Wolfenstein back in the day on a 386, and after building a RetroPie box, I've worked on a few modifications to Wolfenstein so I could get a bit more out of playing it on the big screen with a game controller. I joined the forums to share code with others, collaborate, and see what's new in the (old) world of Wolf.

    I tried to sign up at DieHardWolfers as well, but it seems there is an issue with forum registration (clicking "I Agree to these terms and am over or exactly 13 years of age" results in a SQL error). I emailed areyep but got no response. If anyone can get in touch with a server admin at DieHardWolfers and report that issue, that'd be awesome!

    If you're a coder, I'd appreciate much an opportunity to talk to you about helping me with my retro-related indie project. I'm struggling with its code and in big need of help. You won't be sorry, everyone love the idea, but when it comes to actual help....hard to find a coder willing to do it for pat of future profits.
    If you have retropie, you might know how fun are retro racers (know a way to play arcade ones with dpad btw)...and taken to a new and fresh direction it can be huge.

    and retro gaming nerd
    Then you came to the right place Smile

    I used to play Wolfenstein back in the day on a 386
    My first comp as well Smile

    and after building a RetroPie box,
    Huge retropie fan, member of retropie facebook community, and looooove my retropie box Smile We can exchange ideas, recommendations and impressions Smile
    I have quite a game collection and play it almost daily.

    I've worked on a few modifications to Wolfenstein so I could get a bit more out of playing it on the big screen with a game controller
    A guy on diehardwolfers made me new reconfigured version of Wolf4SDL so I can play it on retropie...didn't try it though.

    I joined the forums to share code with others, collaborate, and see what's new in the (old) world of Wolf.
    You are in the right place then, and have Soooooo much to catch up Smile Mods, modding tools, creative and fantastic mods and creations....and great people and community. There is great community for Commander Keen modding as well, if you're a retro fan (you're probably aware of Doom one, heh)

    Won't advertise my own Wolf3D forum here Smile
    There is no doubt Haven is the less active of Wolf3D forums though (no offense, just a fact).

    There is a thread that lists the best Wolf3D mods on diehardwolfers BTW, but there are really...thousands of mods, mappacks, TCs...you can even search moddb for some. New mods are being frequently released.

    If you're a fan of WolfenDoom can give you a nice link as well

    Posted the issue there, hope we'll get a response.

    Yes! I've seen lots of this work around and admired it!

    I hadn't seen Operation Hundschiesse, that cracked me up!

    Operation Eisenfaust: Origins is amazing work, really well done. And the M1 Grand in Coffee Break just looks great, I'm excited to play it!

    I love the lighting system in Batman: No Man's Land, I emailed @linuxwolf asking if he had the code around for his Wolfenstein 3D Lite mod, he said he'd check.

    I also see you implemented Quick Save, this is something I'd been wanting to see since I picked up Wolf again!

    The thing that is really getting me back into Wolfenstein is the ability to play it on RetroPie on the big screen in the living room. I wonder how tough it would be to get my SDL2 GameController changes into some of these mods, then get some easily installable RetroPie packages. I know it would open them up to a wider audience! Here's my fork (very much a WIP): github.com/lazd/wolf4sdl/tree/sdl2remap


    I've implemented the following:

    • Moved to SDL2
    • Uses GameController API instead of Joystick
    • Embeds GameController_DB for immediate support of dozens of game controllers
    • Supports RetroPie's screwed up xmod patch that forces triggers_to_buttons, as well as without it (for XBox controllers)
    • Allows remapping all buttons on the gamepad with in-game UI
    • Allows adjusting turn speed with in-game UI
    • Allows binding strafe left/right and prev/next weapon for keyboard
    • Allows disabling mouse moving

    As far as racing games,  I never really got into them until I had a wheel and they had a touch of realism. These days my interest in racing games has died down, though I do play a little San Francisco Rush and Mario Kart on N64 for nostalgia's sake. I would be interested in seeing what you're working on, though I can't promise I'll have time to devote to it.

    Thanks for the heads up on the forums, I joined this one because I couldn't get into DieHardWolfers... Hopefully I can create an account there soon!

    And a copy/paste from what I was going to post so you get the gist:

    With these changes, you can sneak up slowly behind a guard or SS and start stabbing before they can get out a Hände hoch. You can precisely strafe and rotate at the same time, lining your enemies up single-file as you let the gatling gun rip them to shreds. You can turn and strafe smoothly with your gamepad's sticks and use the same modern FPS controls you're used to:

    • Left stick X axis: Strafe
    • Left stick Y axis: Move forward/back
    • Right stick X axis: Turn
    • Left stick button: Run
    • Right stick button: Run
    • Left bumper: Previous weapon
    • Right bumper: Next weapon
    • Left trigger: Use
    • Right trigger: Fire
    • Select: Pause
    • Start: Escape


    You can also remap all 10 buttons on the XBox controller using Wolf's Customize Controls UI, as well as assign multiple buttons to the same action.
    Posted here because he couldn't post links yet.
