Gaming:

Want to play Wolfenstein 3D on Windows 10 / Linux ?
I've tested a couple things that work even better than DosBox!

I think these patches support Spear of Destany as well ;)

  • ECWolf for Windows allows you to play Wolf3D on Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows XP.
    Due to lack of a test machine I can't verify it to work on Windows 8 (but others say it does...).

  • Linux users will need to get Wolf4SDL in order to play Wolfenstein 3D natively.
    apt get usually works nicely for most distros ~ link is for additional instruction.
    Also linking this (the developer's) page [Chaos-Software] for convenience.

    You will need your original Wolfenstein 3D game files for these to work.



    Operating Systems:

    Looking to make the change (from WinDoze) ??
    Well here's a couple of distros to get you started!

  • Damn Small Linux is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution.

  • Install Damn Small Linux to a Flash Drive in Windows

  • Top Ten Reasons For Learning Damn Small Linux

  • antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install linux live CD distribution based on Debian Stable for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems.

  • Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support.

  • Get Ubuntu Ubuntu is completely free to download, use and share.

    I will undoubtedly have more Linux links to share with you over the next few months.
    As for me... it will probably be a while before I settle with any particular Linux flavor
    since i like different things about all of the versions that I've tried so far.

  • Perhaps you'd like to try running Android on your desktop?



    ...and More...

    Check out these handy browser tools...

  • The NoScript extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Seamonkey and other mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank).

  • Facebook Disconnect blocks all traffic from third-party sites to Facebook servers but still lets you access Facebook itself.



    Can you say "Cool Utilities"...

  • UPX is a free, portable, extendable, high-performance executable packer for several executable formats.

  • You can find a motherload of useful utilities at tinyapps.org... linking if only for my own use!

  • Speaking of motherloads... Here's a working mirror of simtel.net (ftp) ...loads of stuff that you either thought was extinct or never knew existed.
    come to think of it... a simtelnet mirror might make for a good addition to this site... if only we had more bandwidth/speed...

    If you have read this far you may want to take a look at my humble little personal website:
    Portal.GigDig.com It's actually hosted over at freeservers ... ( somehow! )
    Simply the result of some DNS tinkering I tried back in 2003.
    Haven't been able to successfully point another subdomain there since!
