now you have installed the Borland C++ Compiler Version 3.1
and now it's time to get the source.

that you have the file, unpack it using your zip program and
run the "install.bat"
file. Once the installation is complete, you should now
have a "C:\Wolfsrc"
directory on your hard drive. Great you are now ready
to start editing and modifying the
source code using one, some, or all of the tutorials available
from our site and from others.
now get to your DOS prompt, change into the "C:\Wolfsrc"
directory and type "BC"
and press enter (We assume that you have set up your compiler
using our setup instructions
bring up the editor and should ask you to open a project (or
the project will automatically
open). If it doesn't, then select Project and Open from
the menubar. Open the Wolf3d.prj
file and you should notice it opens a window showing the files
contained in the project.
that done, Go up to the menubar in BC, click on Options and
select Directories. This
will bring up a small window where you must have the following
information for BC to work properly
and compile your changes.
"Includes Directories" it must say C:\BorlandC\Include
Directories" it must say C:\BorlandC\Lib
the "Output Directory"
it must say Obj
the directories now set, you should be able to go to "Compile"
on the menubar and
select "Build All". If you have everything
set up properly, it will now
compile the source (original) without any errors!.
You are now ready to start modifying the source!
a side note, while the above is the setup we use, we also suggest
that you unpack or copy your
Wolfenstein Registered files into a sub directory called "Game"
within your "C:\Wolfsrc"
directory. With this done, create a file called "Test.Bat"
in your "C:\Wolfsrc"
directory using edit (msdos) or Notepad (windows). The
file should look like this:
this "test.bat" file, when you exit the Compiler,
all you need to do is type "Test"
and press enter to try out any changes you have made to the
game. By adding the
above side solution you can keep your different sources (assuming
that you create different
exe's with different features), separate and not have to worry
about things like which games
files are modified to fit the current EXE that I just created.
You also need to fix some of the
included files in the original Wolfenstein game package, so
now download the "Vga files"
by clicking the link below:
Click Here to Download the VGA Files
unpack those files into your "C:\Wolfsrc\game" directory.
These files are modified
versions of the original files so over-write the originals.
With these installed
your new source will now recognize and run your modified game
properly. To test this
out, from C:\Wolfsrc> command prompt, type "test"
and press enter. The game
should start up, and function properly.
everything works, you are now ready to start Modifying the
source to suit your needs.
You can now start modifying the source to include many of the
changes found in our pages (Here)
or others found
while searching he web. You may also want to download
certain editors which will allow
you to change maps, graphics, sounds, and much more (Click
Here for the editors page).
