A conversion and update to Spifferaneous' "Astrostein" mod. Requires Wolfenstein 3D 1.4 and the latest development version of ECWolf
ASTROSTEIN (Spifferaneous Version) - Conversion to ECWolf 1.3.2 (HD VERSION)
based off of Macintosh Wolf3D mod "Astrostein"
created by Gerald Heffner (Spifferaneous)
converted by Sam Feichter (AstroCreep
This update enhances the graphics of the original conversion of Spiff's Astrostein.
In the style of my "HD" Halten Sie! mod, this updates the walls and most static sprites to
128x128 graphics, adds floor graphics and brightness levels, and replaces the actors with
cleaned up versions of themselves (in this case, Laz's WolfenDoom sprites). I have also updated
sounds, and used the mac versions of the weapons.
This is a quick conversion of Spifferaneous' version of Astrostein for the PC
version of Wolfenstein 3D. This version was originally made because there was
no Astrostein mod for the PC version, save Bruce Ryder's 3 level demo. For
some reason (prob the WolfAddict drama back in the day), it was never completed.
So, Spiff took it upon himself to make his own version of Astrostein, with different
enemies and levels. There are 6 new episodes. More info can be checked out in the
"SpifRead.txt" and "SpifInfo.txt" files within the pk3.
I also took the liberty of including Bruce Ryder's 3-level demo as a bonus
CHANGES FROM ORIGINAL
Deleted doubles of graphics, using DECORATE to replicate Giftmacher and Officer
Added extra "disintegrate" sound effect during death
new HUD graphics and title screen and such! This wasn't possible when this was originally released!
Extra music from Spear of Destiny and Blake Stone!
Bruce Ryder's shitty enemy sprites replaced with Laz's much nicer ones
Weapons from the Mac version! (I've hidden the 2 extra weapons in random secret places)

Can't get this to work for me for some reason. What should I try?
Not sure. Works for me fine. Make sure your command line reads ecwolf.exe —file astrostein_spiff_HD.pk3. If you are having trouble with the command line or drag and drop, you could use a Doom launcher such as zdl but you will need to make a “fake iwad” to do that.
Ah, I got it to work now. I found the newer build of 1.3.3. ECWOLF and now it works. Thanks.
