Sci-Fi "Wolfenstein 3D" mod/TC about origins of Wolf3D's "Operation Eisenfaust".

The Nazi's were slowly but surely losing the war, but rumours had it that the
Nazi's were working on one final all or nothing tactic. A camp had been set up,
but what had been taking place at that camp was unknown at the time. Infamous
Nazi doctors had been seen entering the camp, but the how and why were still a

A spy hardly ever gets a break, and the same goes for BJ. You had hooked up
with the Underground after defeating Hans Grosse, where you were informed about
Dr. Schabbs and his 'Operation Eisenfaust'. The camp was linked to the
operation; it was rumoured that it was here that the experiments took place.
You were sent in for investigation.

But something went wrong and you were caught. You got confirmation that

Goals of this remastering edition is to make the best of this mod - without breaking existing maps.
This means, among the rest, fixing some mentioned grumps in various playthroughs (big MP40 muzzle flash - the reason this remastering even started, biting dogs not being killable, wrong swastika directions, rifleman reaction time, rocket guys and Bosses AI too fast turret overheating etc etc).
Later on additional goals were added (again, with limitations not to break existing maps):

1. To take the farther from [you know what mod] origins and closer to Eisenfaust/Wolf3D universe. To make it feel a bit like its own mod, and not [that mod] reskin.
Less interrogations and torture - and more creepy lab scenery/experiments. Don't get me wrong though - enough torture is left, not to break existing maps.
This also includes replacing some of generic Wolf3D scenery into a more unique-looking ones. Replacements of Femstein-borrowed scenery.

2. To add more visual immersion (lighting, weather effects...) and interactivity (interactive and destructible scenery) to the mod.

Origins Remastered





Coding changes, fixes and enhancements:

1. New lighting effects for light sources
2. New sniper scope effect/look
3. Weather and outdoor daylight effects - including (but not limited to) fog, much more realistic and immersive snow and rain effect, fix for snow and rain resolution.
4. Some non-animated scenery is now animated.
5. Many of non-bullet-interactive scenery is now breakable/interactive, including glass windows.
6. Glowing lab chambers/domes
7. Tall floors support
8. Bugfixes

Art fixes, improvements and replacements:

Almost all art got changed in some way. From minor edits to total replacements.
Some changes you might not notice at all, some - you'll say "damn, this somehow looks better, but I can't pinpoint why", and some you'll definitely notice.
Too long to list all of the changes, will list some.

1. Improved title screen and better HUD colors
2. Improvements, changes, replacements (new art, including animated and breakable) to lab-related scenery, lab chamber/blood transfusion themes, replacement of lockers theme with a theme to bridge between the prison/mutants and lab experiments.
3. New sniper scope art
4. New, more realistic rifle guy shooting frames
5. Newly-animated scenery, improvement of digging animation, new ceiling drops animation, improved turret dude animations.
6. Alot of interactive/breakable scenery. If you think bullet would damage it - it probably does.
7. Improvement to almost all enemies and Bosses in terms of animation, shooting, pain frames etc. They are now more animated, better animated. Recoloring fixes, swastika direction fixes.... Muzzle shooting flash also interacts with them light-wise. Fix of "bearded Boss" death frame. More unique pain frames for enemies.
8. Addition of scientists/doctors - for lab-related themes.
9. Some improved textures and floors and a few new floors (like melted snow floor for campfire)
10. All health pickups are now unique-looking.
11. Improved "mutant getting hit" animation to match Sonder one. Improved other animations (including digging animation)
12. Fixes of scenery for better perspective, to look less flat and to relate to view height.
13. Improving contrast, colors of some scenery, better and more consistent looking skulls in scenery, less bright skeletons....
15. New, more realistic seamless grass scenery
16. Glass windows
17. Corrected bread and broom colors to more realistic ones.
18. Improved intermission animation
19. Improved ending picture.
20. Improved HUD colors and design.

Great,big, confusing and complex mod!A whole year I walkthroughed it!I've never been through a game this long, much less a Wolfenstein-3D mod.A bunch of sprites, a bunch of walls painted by DoomJedi and other artists.But I noticed 3 errors.
1st error:9 area in front of the exit of the level is behind that fence is the snowman.Probably wrong mapper sprite or Easter egg.
In sprite, where a mutant shoots a dead officer the color error.Brush, in which holds a pistol is beige color
During the transition from 12 to 13 level,music
from Corridor 7 is distorted.But if you go to the menu and go back into the game,the rules played.
Thank you very much for the chic mod!Especially remember the beautiful, varied soundtracks.Cool!Cool!Very cool!

How do I play this on windows? I don't know what to do when you extract.(You can extract with 7 zip apparently)A bunch of files comes up like AUDIOHED.sod and INTART23.SOD.

What do you mean?
Just run the exe.
It's native Windows program, run it as you'd do any other.

Just had a crack at this mod and I am enjoying it so far :). Since the release of ECwolf you ever thought of attempting to port it over to it?

Thank you, I'm glad to hear that, and more feedback.

I'm aware of ECWolf, but no - there are no current plans to port it there. We are busy with or new mods in development, and porting this mod to any engine would require much effort.
We prefer making new mods for you to enjoy.
