I'm tired of all the SEO/s negative comments..
It is what it is!
It will remain as it is.

I do not need your critisisms or suggestions..
I will not buy your services!

These pages have existed for over 20 years.
They will exist for another 20 years..
Without the aid of paid SEO/s services.

These pages are not here to generate income.
They go way into the red every single year.
Please stop offering your optimization tricks to me!

I'm not in it for the money.
I'm not in it for the fame.
I'm not in it for the glory.

This site is operated as a hobby.

    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.

    Simply the result of some DNS tinkering I tried back in 2003.
    Haven't been able to successfully point another subdomain there since!
