Trailer

Tired of games about boring old Nazis? Well never fear: there's a new figurehead of racist, xenophobic, fascist thought who a new generation can relate to! This mod updates Wolfenstein 3D to include the modern parallel of Hitler!

Installation Tutorial

Disclaimer:
This modification is meant solely for the purposes of political satire. The creator of this mod does not, in any way, condone violent conduct. The violence within is over-the-top and only included for the purposes of making a comparison between the political activities of Donald Trump and the political ideals of Adolf Hitler.



Go in peace, bra.



The idea of this mod is to draw attention to the outrageous political ideals held by republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and those who support him. The mod itself is not meant to be any great piece of art, but rather a statement via its own existence: this mod existing is in itself a kind of political cartoon of how some Americans perceive Donald Trump's xenophobic, racist, ignorant politics.



Please do not take it too seriously, as doing so may result in hemorrhoids.
All that you need is Wolfenstein 3D, the Trump Tower 3D mod file, and EC Wolf.



Trump Tower 3D can be downloaded here:
*Due to threats of violence, the mod will be temporarily pulled. Please stay peaceful and responsible. Thank you for your understanding.
Wolfenstein 3D can be purchased from Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/2270/
ECWolf can be downloaded from here:
http://maniacsvault.net/ecwolf/download.php

So as no one can stump the Trump in real life, you have to resort to doing it in a video game? That's actually pathetic, and not just a little weird...

Stop censoring the vidya games with your political correctness! It's unethical.

I didn't get to see much of it because ECwolf crashed on level end everytime for some reason. Looks thorough, but it could use more imagination. With pretty much everything being replaced by Trump it looks like he's basically the whole problem. And he wouldn't be quite as infamous has it not been for the support of people much worse than him. Such as people who quite explicitly call themselves Nazis or pro-Nazis and so couldn't possibly be any less questionable enemies than the original wolf3d ones.

He's basically endorsed by the KKK, so yeah... lots of inspiration for a full-fledged mod there. An actual Trump Tower would be a good setting. Mr Green

What the hell are you talking about? I am not censoring anything. I merely stated an opinion, that is all. And my opinion is that this was obviously made out of frustration because the lies and trickery of the other candidates and the media have been unable to stop Trump. That really is no different to watching pornography because you are unable to get laid. Pathetic. And weird.

With that said, I probably won't play the mod, but I will admit that Trump's head on Hans Grosse and in the Mecha suit is badass!

The game is not victory over Trump. As I mentioned in the original post the game is meant to be a political cartoon in its very existence. This isn't meant to say "Here's a Trump murder simulator" because I don't think that should be the point of the mod (hence why I show no violence on the part of the player in the trailers). This is just another gag way to point at the xenophobic, ultra nationalist, pro-hate group policies that Trump has been putting on blast. It is meant for entertainment purposes and perhaps as a conversation piece; but if you're taking it seriously enough to throw around words like pathetic I may want to revisit my recommendation in the original post that you seek hemorrhoidal care.

Also, this mod is in no way an endorsement of any other political party or candidate, only a criticism of Trump and his supporters.

I can understand the frustration though, if there is any. I mean, it seems that there is a legitimate chance that Trump might run the country. That is terrifying to non-Americans, let alone it being terrifying to a big part of the American people themselves. And the reactions to such sleazy demagogues are often reflected in art, music, and even games. So it really isn't that weird that it even pops up in Wolf3D mods. Though I would have preferred if this was actually a full-fledged mod taking place in a Trump Tower, with a Celebrity Apprentice storyline and all. Laughing

I hear you there. I absolutely would have done that if the 1.) The goal of the mod weren't expressly to make a political statement about Trump being as much of a cartoon villain as Hitler and 2.) If I didn't already work a full time job, have full time classes, and am working on commercial ventures in my spare time. Hopefully I can revisit the idea at a later point and make something more complete that we could both have a lot more fun with Smile

Well, no, I don't really take the mod itself seriously. It is not the first time someone has resorted to a game about violence against Trump (Deny it as you please, but that is the way I am inclined to see it), and it probably won't be the last. It is the reasoning behind the games that I find the most disturbing. However, provided the games don't actually incite violence against people, then I would never question the right for people to make them, since I believe in free speech. But I will always question the motive.

I remember when Michael Collin released Bushenstein in 2004. It was just before the election over there. Some months later he released a full version. Nobody even gave a wink. Again, Bush replaced BJ, but still - political mods are pretty scarce, and it's probably because of all the opinionated bullshit overflowing the internet the past eight-ten years. Perhaps copyright or some moron creating a shitstorm on some social media over the mod drives the fear of not making any. Or maybe they're just not really needed. I think they are. The more variation in mods the better.

The graphics for this particular mod look quite professional though, actual human faces are usually wildly pixelated and not very expressive in Wolf 3D.

I have gone to great lengths to ensure that violence against Donald Trump is not the focus of the mod. I have removed any speak of physical violence against politicians from the flavor text (favoring words like "intercepted" over "assassinated", and so on, even going as far as to describe the Hitler Trump's blood as being ketchup), added two disclaimers in the front of the game, and took care that no trailers of the game show off the player character even using their weapons. Not to mention that any violence in the game is simply left over from the original Wolfenstein, yet I've removed plenty of frames from death animations. If there is any intention of making this about violence then I assure you that this intention only exists within the eyes of those who wish to see it.

Thank you for noticing! The sprites replacements in this mod are 10x the original resolution (640x640 px compared to 64x64 px) to ensure that it doesn't just look like some random middle aged man with a ratty hairdo- the political satire would sort of lose its meaning if nobody could tell it were Trump hahaha. This also helped me to replaced the warning signs on the walls with quotes from Trump and other fun details such as that. This is the main reason I went with the ECWolf sourceport as well as the ease it provides in creating quick code changes to enemies and flavor text.

Very well. Thank you for clarifying that. Whatever my personal opinion of such a mod may be, I'm satisfied at least that it does not incite violence against Trump or his supporters.

Really? I have never heard of Bushenstein. This reminds me that on the “Ideas For Wolf 3D” thread for wolf3d.darkbb.com that I half-jokingly suggested Wolf Blitzerstein 3D. Wolf Blitzer is an American news commentator. I thought that I suggested that he fights as bosses comedians impersonating Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Kim Jong Ill, Yassir Arafat, Slovodon Milosevich, & the 1980s dictator of Romania.

In light of recent threats of violence in the political scene I'm removing all downloads of my Trump Tower 3D mod from the internet. Despite my disclaimers about how the mod does not endorse violence of any kind, I don't want to be associated with the kinds of scum who would actually resort to it if shit ever hits the fan. The video and screenshots will remain online (as they showcase no violence against any living person) to carry the true message of the mod: political satire comparing one candidate to a historical figure.
Just to reiterate: I do not, and never will, condone violent conduct of any kind. Name calling is great, I love that. People like Donald Trump only threaten us with their ability to spread ideas, and the only way to fight ideas is with better ideas and ridicule. Violence is not the answer and will only serve to empower the ideas I wish to contest.
Stay peaceful, stay responsible, and I apologize that the mod must be censored.

Right... And that is why I actually suggest that people do NOT do things like this. The last time that I voiced my opinion was against Sonder. With that in mind, this is the same thing that I have always said...

I respect your right to make something like this.
I respect the rights of others to not want to play something like this.
Under the right of Freedom of speech, you do have those rights....
But my question is knowing that you know it is going go to be controversial and the division that it will create is it worth it?

I actually believe in many of the things that Trump stands for. And I can honestly say that he is no bigot, and he detests the violence and hatred that have become part of your presidential race. From what I understand, it is openly announced before any of his campaign events begin that they remind everyone that violence & the rest will not be condoned. And yes, then you hear him say things like "Get them out" to those that choose to interrupt his events over and over. He is not saying beat someone.. and yes your hear him say that "in the old days, they would be carried out on stretcher, because it's true. But you are reading into his words the wrong thing... You believe he is in-sighting anger and violence when what he really is saying is that those disrupters are wrong in doing what they are doing as they are the ones who are in-sighting the confrontation and violence. Hence why they are usually surrounded by people with their phone-cams trying to catch the other on video doing wrong.

That in itself is wrong.
Completely wrong.
You can't go into an event and push the buttons of others looking for something to happen.
Those that do that are in the wrong.
Protest outside the event fine...
While you don't like what someone has to say or how they say it, they do have the right to say it.

And I will always be on the side of right to speech.
With that, please release your mod... it is your right...
But please don't fight here over who is right or wrong as then those that do become wrong.

Threats of violence and name calling is always the idiot's first line of defense & method of attack, and there will always be people who misunderstand the intended message of such a controversial subject. I understood it myself, though I disagree strongly with both the message and the reasoning.

Thank you for your comment BrotherTank. Your statements are incredibly well measured and reasonable.

I would love to rerelease my mod, but feel that the scene has become too influxxed with violence over the past couple days, particularly against Trump himself. I wish to have no part in that or for others to confuse that I have any part in that. Donald Trump is somebody that I don't agree with in any way, and my hyperbolic mod is meant as a political cartoon more than a measured argument against any of his specific policies. A Wolfenstein mod is not the place to deliver a world-changing political statement, only satire and entertainment.

I despise violence of any kind, and because I wish to remain separated from those who are calling for violence against politicians I'd really prefer to keep the mod pulled until I can find a way to edit it to be completely lacking in any kind of violent message.

I also don't wish to debate anybody in this forum about politics as I believe there are better uses of peoples time. Your views are yours and I can tell that you've put enough thought into them that I can respect that. The same goes to Wolf_CCCP with whom I only wished to address the issue of my mod possibly inciting violence and have no interest in engaging in political debate. When making this mod I was fully prepared to have hate directed toward me as is the case whenever any person makes any political statement on the internet. The responses I've found here have been nothing but rational and I think that moderators like yourself and members like those who have participated in this thread are an excellent sign that this is a forum inhabited by very intelligent people.

Thank you for defending my right to publish this mod. For now I am the only person censoring myself.

I think that you and I agree on much besides our preference in presidential candidates. This mod was certainly never meant to be something cerebral but rather a parody that I found needed to be made in today's political climate- a joke too obvious to not be acted upon. Clearly I'm seeing that the current political climate might not be ready for jokes. Your statements have had nothing to do with my decision to pull the mod, but I believe that your arguments are insightful and have served as food for thought. I'm entirely grateful to have intelligent people like yourself voice your disagreement with me.

Sorry to hear that you have gotten threats like that.
Again, I deplore all of that.
I'm watching CNN right now and they are going after Trump like he's some kind of nut that wants this kind of things happening at his events. I wish the people would stop doing those things as the more that they do these stupid things, the more air-time he gets... Even as it's negative.... And Aron Brown just reported that as I said earlier, a message is played before each of his events that specifically says "Please do NOT attack or injure anyone disrupting this event.". I honestly believe that the more these disruptors do these things at Trump events, the more people are driven TO his campaign and voting for him. It only makes it look like the country is out of control and that someone is needed from outside the political class to finally make changes and listen to the people, that believe they haven't been listened to in years. Trump has said many a time that he isn't doing this for himself (which can be argued both ways I know) but rather for the people. And the more that people protest, disrupt, and interfere with the Trump rallies and events, the more news coverage he gets which in turn brings more people to his events. They'd be better off staying outside and protesting if they must, and then Trump wouldn't be in the news constantly. And with the media blaming Trump for what is obviously not Trump, only make themselves look stupid and biased (which is something everyone can see even when it's not an election cycle).

I mean is there anything else going on in the world except the US presidential election?? I have to watch Canadian news to see a little more of what is going on in the world... ooohh wait... CNN is reporting that Putin is ordering his troops out of Syria... and they gave that 5 minutes of airtime... in the last 2 hours of CNN that I have been watching while catching up on things before I take my meds and I can't do things like this (ie posting)... lol...

Anyhow... So much for my opinion... I'm a life long Conservative who believes that you spend only what you have.. and run things like government like a business... and you do so to make money, be able to hire more people and grow slowly while assuring that the business will have a future with continued growth and income... but I couldn't vote conservative in the last Canadian election because the idiot leader that we have became too much like American politicians and needed to be removed from power. But I do have some Liberal tendencies, like a Woman's right to choose & Gay marriage as long as they also get the right to divorce and all the problems that married people have to deal with in life.. lol..

I just wish things in the world would settle down and let all of our lives be somewhat more normal or predictable. It seems the more I watch the news, I see what looks like the whole world going down the drain and headed for something much larger and scarrier than anything else we've seen in the past. A war maybe... Not sure, but I get this weird feeling (and it's not just because of the US elections) that somethings comming that we aren't going to like or be happy with....

I hope I'm wrong...

BrotherTank, your comments towards Donald Trump have been wise and rational. I remember when I was planning a Schindler's List mod that was going to have Schindler's List play out in text format and a WWII storyline with BJ as the main mission format. I decided against the idea because a fictional war story with a fictional character and a real life Holocaust story should not be combined like this. I was planning on having BJ even go to an actual concentration camp and fight the Nazis there which would have represented him essentially being a freedom fighter for the Jews. No controversies would have been shown. I even was thinking of making the camp abandoned, but still, I had to drop the idea as it was too realistic and too dark. This leads to the second reason, a mod like this would be in poor taste.

While I really don't agree with Trump politically (or at all, for that matter), I do find it rather disappointing that the media/fanatical supporters of other political factions/etc. seem to feel the need to either intentionally misinterpret quotations or just completely make up stuff to try and discredit him (and other politicians). I feel like that sort of thing is a much more egregious procession than any satire, regardless of the manner or quality of said satire. Sadly the NZ media is just as terrible as the US media in that respect, which is largely why I've stopped using it both for NZ political news and overseas news. These days if I need news I use BBC (good for non-UK world politics), Al Jazeera (good for anything not in the Middle East, also can be watched on free-to-air TV here) and Reuters (just generally good).

As far as this mod goes, while I see no real reason to make a Wolfenstein mod where eveything has been Trumpified, I see no problem with someone doing so. It's in bad taste, perhaps, but it could probably be argued that the media manipulation of politicians and their policies (which frankly should be the main focus of the electoral process, nothing else) is in far worse taste. As far as the idea of mixing fictional characters with real events, I also see no problem in doing so, even when the real event involved is one of the worst atrocities committed in history - in this case I feel like it should be treated in a mature manner and with respect, but that it is a valid setting for a video game (which was why I was so disheartened to see some people react so vehemently to Sonderkommando before it got pulled).

@BT: Sounds more like you should vote for Clinton, who is the closest thing to a conservative (with liberal tendencies, like you) in the race currently.

As for the rest, I think it's fair to say that the Republican party has done the impossible and has become even nuttier than during previous elections. Trump is a populistic sleazebag only in it for himself, but the candidates that are being backed by the party are somehow worse. Cruz is a [Censored] crazy nutter, and Rubio the robot malfunctioned pretty hard during those debates. But it tells you everything you need to know about the Christian Right in America that their candidate of choice is a thrice-divorced sleazebag who brags about his dick size in public and says he'd have sex with own daughter (not making this shit up, this happened: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHNASeP-3fI). America's religious hypocrisy with regards to politics summed up right there. Sure, the media is terrible and not helping matters, but you can only blame so much on the media.

The Christian right prefers Cruz over Trump. As a Christian, I support Trump and not Cruz.

Still hoping for a Sanders/Trump showdown. The media machine would implode on itself...

Sanders would be fantastic, but I do think it'll be Clinton who'll be the Democratic party's nominee in the end.

I don't know, man. Sanders has this weird hard-on for Denmark which creeps me out a little. It barely works here. You think it could work in the USA? All about how you approach it I suppose. Definitely we're facing an interesting election, certainly the most exciting our generation has experienced yet. I think. It's all different when you're not in the US. It looks like a circus and media coverage is more or less biased and there's way too much focus on stupid things. Just like European politics have turned out the past decade or two.

Why though? It seems that he upholds values that you would most likely be against.

Cruz seems to lie. Even Glenn Beck was trying to say that Trump Steaks do not exist when they do. I use to listen and watch Glenn Beck regularly, but I am planning on canceling my subscription to his online TV network. Trump represents people that do not want to be part of the GOB establishment. The GOB is dishonest just as the liberals are. This is why I am for Trump. He speaks what is on his mind and is not politically correct.

I consider myself a libertarian, but I think that Paul would have been weak on national defense.

The interesting thing, President George W Bush, someone who Ted Cruz supported, signed a law in 2003, more about it can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_status_of_cartoon_pornography_depicting_minors . As a Christian, I think that this should be illegal. If you look at it from a first amendment perspective though, the law signed by Bush is in violation of the first amendment. It is a fictional character. Not a real person. If laws are passed prohibiting fictional obscene images, you might as well pass a law prohibiting murder and killing. It is the same thing kind of. To a point, I see why it is illegal. From a first amendment perspective, one could make an argument that it is free speech. In all fairness, I guess there is really no harm in making it illegal. A person who looks at those fictional images is sick in the head.

In all honesty, Clinton is going to win. I don't support any of the candidates, but there are enough voters out there foolish enough to vote for her just because she's a woman. I'm all for a female president, but not one with so many controversies.

I'm for Sanders personally; I highly disapprove of what the Republicans have been doing for the past several years, and I don't think electing a Republican president is going to improve matters. I too suspect that Clinton will win, but I honestly believe Sanders is pointed in the right direction in many more areas than Hillary is.

I think most of the Clinton scandals as everyone seems to call them, are mostly dishonest republican stories that they tell their children each night because if it's said often and over & over again, it becomes real and believable. Just look at the e-mails alone... She was following the rules at the time... the rules were changed after as were most if not all of the e-mails now classified secret... and they tell the story so often and so well that it becomes the truth even thought the party itself and the political class wouldn't know the truth if it smacked them in the face.. lol... anyhow...

About the Trump Mod... I've got the perfect fix... You are Joe the Hotdog vender, just trying to sell your load of dogs to a bunch of Weiners in the Political Class at the GOB convention.. where a great divide in the party takes place and everyone goes nuts trying to defend their delegates before the first vote has even taken place.... It's your job to fight your way to freedom outside the convention center using all that you have in your kit... Hotdogs - Sodas - And the basic Condiments that you put on your Hotdogs.. Ketchup, Mustard, and lets say Mayo.... So basically it's Spray your way to Freedom and have fun taking out the GOB's while doing it... As the TrumpMaster (Your Trump under glass in the metal suit) tries to take control of the party with the help of his Make America Great Again Team.... MAGAT.. lol.. close enough to Magot... or Maggot... lol...

How does that work out for you... Easily converted in ECWolf I think... I don't know as I don't use that, I use the Source... So may the Source be with you....
