    New game modes

    In addition to co-op classic Wolfenstein 3D gameplay, Splitwolf brings 9 new game modes:

        Instagib
        You have only one life, but your weapons only take one shot to kill. Watch out, because so do the enemy's weapons!

        Defuse the bomb
        A bomb is spawned somewhere in the level, players must find and defuse it before time runs out, only then will the elevator unlock!

        Carry the Flag
        One player must carry the flag to the end of the level before the time runs out. You can't shoot when you have the flag, but you can impale Nazis with it or pass it to your friend with the use key!

        Vampire
        Drink the blood of your enemies to survive! Spawn with all weapons and infinite ammo and try to finish the level before your blood bar drains.

        Harvester
        Harvester pillars are placed randomly around the level, and after each kill, a skull is spawned on the pillars. You must find a pillar and collect the skull before the countdown ends to stay alive!

        Mutant BJ
        All of your enemies are zombie BJs with random weapons!

        Rampage
        Put your dukes up and knock your enemies out with fists of fury! Keep your adrenaline up to instagib enemies with one punch.

        Zombie
        Nazi zombies are attacking! Kill them by ganging up on them with shots from multiple players, otherwise they reanimate!

        Zombie Harvester
        Just like harvester, but with Nazi zombies that reanimate for an added challenge.

    New weapons

    Splitwolf brings the pain with an armored vehicle equipped with a mounted gatling gun!

    Installation

        If you already own Wolf3D or Spear of Destiny, dump all the files loosely into roms/ports/wolf3d/

          Run RetroPie Setup    Select "Update RetroPie-Setup Script"    Select "Manage Packages"    Select "Manage experimental Packages"    Select "splitwolf"    Select "Install/Update from Source"


    After installation, you'll be able to launch Splitwolf from the Ports menu in EmulationStation.

    Game data

    Game files should be added to roms/ports/wolf3d/ before installation. If not present, the install script will download the shareware versions of Wolf3D and Spear of Destiny.

    If you add new game data after install, simply run the following to create new shortcuts:

    Code:
    sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_packages.sh splitwolf configure

    Support

    For RetroPie-specific Splitwolf support and questions (RetroPie installation, game files, etc), post on the RetroPie forums.

    For general Splitwolf support and questions (how to build, support for other platforms, map packs, etc), post on the Team Raycast forums.

    If you already have Splitwolf up and running and you've found a bug (glitch with the game, crash while playing, etc), please report it using the Splitwolf issue tracker.

    If you've found a bug with the RetroPie Setup installer, please report it using the RetroPie-Setup issue tracker.

    DO NOT USE ISSUE TRACKERS FOR GENERAL SUPPORT OR QUESTIONS, YOU WILL NOT BE HELPED!
