Here's a little something me and Linuxwolf have worked on: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7510301/Wolfenstein%203D%20Lite%20Beta.zip

It's still a beta, but the gist is this: You have no weapons. You can use the shadows to hide from the enemies. The default is that you walk slowly, which means the guards won't hear you. You can still walk faster, using SHIFT, but this increases the chance that guards will hear you.

Enjoy! Thumbs Up

I'm assuming from the look of that shading this isn't in the normal Wolf engine. Still, looks pretty cool Smile

It is, actually! Smile

...wow. Is this using the_fish and WLHack's shading, or is this a new system?

I'm gonna let Linuxwolf answer that one Wink Coding-wise I know relatively little about it.

It is normal Wolf4SDL engine with a new system for lighting. It uses radiosity approach (ala Quake 2/3). The engine is capable of unique textures on every wall but we don't utilize that. I don't know much about the_fish or WLHack shading.

I should point out this engine does NOT use OpenGL or Direct 3D. We still use software rendered graphics in this mod. But we utilize 32-bit colour mode instead of 256 colour mode.

Lastly we have dynamic per-pixel lighting as well. We hope you like it. Smile

Would you be willing to share the code for said lighting? I could definitely use that in my own engine (which is 32-bit already).

#8: Re: Wolfenstein 3D Lite Beta Author: linuxwolf PostPosted: Fri Oct 31, 2014 9:36 pm

That is something we might do later down the track. Its hard to release source right now since it shares code with other projects (not yet released) and this was only a small side project for us. Ask me again when, say, Batman: No Man's Land has been released.

Fair enough; I hope I remember to do so Smile

Maybe it's all in my head, but are the guard animations different?

Wow this is really neat looking! Reminds me of the original lighting method used in the old No Man's Land shots. Is this more flexible and performance friendly?

#12: Re: Wolfenstein 3D Lite Beta Author: AlumiuNLocation: Christchurch, New Zealand PostPosted: Sat Nov 01, 2014 1:10 am

As far as I can tell it uses precalculated light maps, meaning the performance overhead is pretty slim (although that's why the download is comparatively huge).

If so - it's be just like in original NML lighting system we scrapped from it.
NML doesn't use such currently AFAIK.

Yes, I've made "marching" guards frames for this mod (and off frames for lamps).
I've made them for all basic Wolf3D enemies (including mutants), regardless of how much enemies actually used in this mod.

Obviously, after this mod is released - all those can be used by others with credit.

Why is it every time LinuxWolf shows new shading engine, he is immidiately suspected to copy from others? He is a capable coder on his own, not less than WLHack or TheFish, even more.
And AFAIK - he NEVER uses or considers to use code of others.

I didn't mean it in a bad way, I was simply interested to know if it was the system the_fish and WLHack put together or a new one. I didn't mean to suggest that he was copying code (although to be honest I wouldn't call implementing someone else's code a sin in this community; it's pretty much how everyone gets started in the community, and in my case a lot of my skill is down to implementing the code of others), and certainly not that he is an incapable coder.

So it's Thief on the Wolfenstein engine, in a Nazi castle? That's really neat! Are you guys going to release a mapping kit for that eventually?

I really like a lot of the concepts as well as the overall visual aesthetics of it.
The AI is pretty interesting too, though realistically speaking, i sometimes feel like the guards are blind, or completely stupid, as there are a few instances where I've been able to walk right in front of them with no reaction at all from them.

Having said that though. this is pretty damn hard as it is. The 'realistic AI' I propose would only be playable I feel in a game that had weapons Razz

I give props to both Ron and Linuxwolf for this Beer Beer

Ron is definitely going places. I mean, I am terrible at playing these games, and some of the stuff Poet's done etc. because I like the simple run and gun, clapping walls for secret kind of mod more. But the shading and the atmosphere... The way you perceive the original environment in an entirely different way is certainly appealing... A lot of suspense in that damn blue stone prison level! Must play this more though.

I fully agree with Thomas.

Sorry for the late reply! It's not something linuxwolf and I have really discussed. It will certainly be a long time after the release if we were to decide to release a mapping kit. We'll see, also depends on interest.

Anyone else give this a go? Smile

Curious if this requires a dedicated graphics card and/or shader support? I'm on a laptop with dual core processor, 2 gigs of RAM and on-board video with 256MB memory.

I played the game on a Radeon 9250 card with 128 MB of video memory, and all on Windows XP. That's DirectX 8 material right there. Don't think you'll have a problem. Smile

#23: Re: Wolfenstein 3D Lite Beta Author: ronwolf1705 PostPosted: Mon Nov 17, 2014 4:31 am

Yes, I think you should be able to play it just fine Smile

It works on a Pentium III 1.0GHZ 512MB RAM Win98SE system with a 3dfx Voodoo5 AGP card. You better be able to run it! Laughing

Before I forget to do this, here is the source repository.

w3dlite on bitbucket

Thanks for the post, LinuxWolf. I know this source has numerous possibilities in the future. Smile

This code is nothing short but incredible. Smile

Thank you Ginyu. It means a lot. I wouldn't have made it available if it was ordinary. Smile

And thanks Tricob. Its nice to think about the possibilities. I hope this source release is inspiration to somebody.
