    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.

    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?

  • FSP stands for File Service Protocol

    If you have read this far you may want to take a look at my humble little personal website:

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