Mandelbrot-5 writes "From the Activision Wolfenstein web site: "The multiplayer test is OUT! You can find it at www.castlewolfenstein.com, www.gamespy.com, as well as a few other places. Here is a list of other mirrors in case you're among the many who are fighting to grab it: FilePlanet 3D Gamers Blue's News Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer pits players in a team-based Axis versus Allies contest for front-line domination, where multiple player classes must mobilize and work together to accomplish mission objectives. The multiplayer element of Return to Castle Wolfenstein is currently in development by Nerve Software with assistance from id Software and Gray Matter Interactive.'"

Back to the Olde Days (1)

man_ls (248470) | more than 12 years ago | (#2304380)

I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D on a 386/SX with like 4MB of RAM. I was like 10 years old at the time (I'm only 16 now...), learning how to make .BAT files, about how hardware was assigned resources, command lines, and also how to frag Nazi's in a 3D setting.

Nothing like bringing back memories.

I only hope the graphics won't be as crappy in retrospect.

Oh that's nothing. I remember getting Wolf 3D to run on a monochrome IBM 286 with either 2MB or 4MB of ram (I forget the exact amount).

Either way, what impressed me was that I could get it running on that machine. I tried most of my favorite games on that machine with little success until I got W3D running (bear in mind I was 8 at the time, now I'm 17). I hope this new iteriation lives up to the legacy of Wolfenstein 3D.

Remember the goold old days... (3)

Ghoser777 (113623) | more than 12 years ago | (#2304397)

When my Appl IIgs didn't have a hardrive. I always had to boot off a floppy disk of some sort. Number Munchers was the closest thing I had to a violent game... I still have nightmares of troggles.

And then there was Wolfenstein. Too bad I didn't find out about it until last year (thank you emulation.net). I could only imagine how great these graphics must have been back in the late 80s. That's when Mario brothers had great graphics (until my brother stuck a marshmello into my Nintendo on my b-day...). The game play was simple, but involving. Did anyone complain back then about bloatware games and crappy graphics? Heck no, everything was pretty well equal.

But now we're half way between low n polygon 3D and high n polygon 3D, with stuff like FinalFantasy 7 being on the lower end, and Final Fantasy 9 on the higher end. If you played 8, you saw how crappy everybody looked; you could barely make out the characters (not to mention the crappy GF system, but that's another matter). 2D used to be good, and always getting better. When we went from good looking 2D to shoddy looking 3D, it really pissed me off. I couldn't figure out why everything looked so choppy all of a sudden (this was before I took geometry in high school).

But the good old days will never be back... except through emulation. I hope multiplayer Wolfenstein gives us something to talk about, not just something to complain about.

I believe the original Castle Wolfenstein (Muse Software) was released in 1983. The sequel came in 1985. The (original) id Software guys are known for having cut their teeth on the Apple II's -- It wouldn't surprise me if David Schroeder (Dino Eggs, Short Circuit) were one of their gameplay balance influences.

There's a page about the original CW here: http://www.mobygames.com/game/sheet/gameId,3115/

I still remember trying to find all the Nazi's and not die. Man that was a challenge. I still remember trying to figure out how to connect to my friends computer many years later to play Quake. Man, where have the good ol days gone?

This will ruin the flavor of Wolfenstein (1)

bryan1945 (301828) | more than 12 years ago | (#2304400)

I remember playing the first Wolfenstein, and the second, and it was you against an entire castle, much less the bratwurst monopoly! Once you make it multiplayer, just change the name. Of course, they are probably trying to cash in on the name. Oh well, it will probably feature amazing graphics with ok gameplay, like most games have been the past 5 years or so.

Re:This will ruin the flavor of Wolfenstein (1)

skwirl42 (262355) | more than 12 years ago | (#2304430)

Well, when you look at it, it gives a more balanced perspective of war. And it takes advantage of the biggest seller of top-of-the-line games: playing with others. So, it's really a 21st century update to a 20th century game.

For Linux, I have: Quake 1,2,3, Soldier of Fortune, Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Terminus, Myth 2, Heavy Gear 2, and numerous Quake expansion packs and add-on's such as Team Fortress for Quake.

My linux system works so good now I am considering wiping that worthless waste of disk space and crappy games into the bit bucket forever. Last time I booted Windoze, it couldn't handle my usb mouse and so I plugged in the ps2 mouse. This changed my IRQ's and caused my ethernet card to go down. It took me over four hours of rebooting to get everything straightened out and after that hassle I haven't screwed with it since.

Surf over to EB Games [ebgames.com] and do a search for linux they have a whole page of brand new full Loki titles for $9.95.

Some of us may not like the idea of terrorists succeeding in disrupting everybodies life so we don't let it happen. We will continue to live the way we always have. It IS possible to give blood and play video games at the same time.

However, I'd like you to tell us what you would rather us do. Do you want us to get up every morning, pray while surrounded by US flags for a couple of hours, go get breakfast, pray surrounded by US flags for another several hours, go get lunch, donate blood, pray while surrounded by US flags for another several hours, get dinner, pray for another several hours, then go to bed? Or maybe I wasted to much time eating...

Perhaps it is just me, but I like the idea of getting up in the morning, going to work, seeing friends, check the news for updates, etc. etc.
i.e. continue on with my life.

I just came out of a game of it and I'm disappointed. I guess its a test so a lot of the criticism is just because of that... but its VERY laggy. I had a ping of about 150 and it was verging on unplayable.
It just doesn't feel good. It feels like a Quake 3 World War 2 mod with lots of latency added. Not an entirely new game. The flamethrower was impressive but not mindblowing. The rocket launcher and grenades are completely useless due to the lag (might be different for pings around 50... but 150 isn't all that high).
Quake 3 was much better at handling lag, so since this is a multiplayer test hopefully any lag issues will be straightened out.
For now, the DOD mod for Half-Life is a MUCH better WW2 fix. Wolfenstein's single player looks VERY impressive but the multiplayer test is quite disappointing. I suppose thats why they stress it's a TEST.

Unfortunately, most people wouldn't recognize the skin as just bin Ladin. Instead, they would think it was a regular Arab, and that will just exacerbate the problem of ignorant Americans thinking all Arabs and Muslims are terrorists.

There's buzz about the OS X version. Apparently, it's done, just waiting to be set free, according to Graeme Devine:


" Mac stuff.
I've been playing the WolfMP test natively under Mac OS X. I've also got the OS X installer for WolfMP all wrapped up and standing by. "

At some point Id was doing their own stuff, why did they go back to a distributor?

Don't you make more money if you sell your own stuff? Id is certainly established enough to be able to pull it off...

Linux Client/Server.. when will it happen? (1)

I have read about a Linux Client/Server, anyone know when? Didn't ID port it's previous games to Unix flavors FIRST? I hope this isn't a new habit.. (porting to windows first).

This might be a dumb question but.. (1)

where the linux version? I loved that game and infact i had a machine setup just to play it until a few months ago. That game is one of the reasons i love to play with computers! it it what started a new genre (for the most part), and i will never forget that game. I would love to play it again but i dont have a windows machine and this is one thing i would go out and spend money on for a linux version. most games i just dont bother to play because they arent worth it, but i want this one! ya hear me loki?

sorry, i've had a few too many mcewan's scotch ales tonite.. mmmmmm beer...

the UI is rather nice(menus and whatnot), but they have a long way to go on this to remove that total ass wreakage

Jumpy and Dimly Lit (1)

There is a lot of potential here, but this game is jumpy, even with my DSL and low ping times. Of course they went for the "Lots of Dimly Lit Rooms" map - it's hard to tell freind from foe, unless you're right on top of them. I'm sure there is some setting that will put little icons of the team floating above the avatars, but the game was so jumpy, I lost interest.
