4. New game modes
In addition to co-op classic Wolfenstein 3D gameplay, Splitwolf brings 9 new game modes:

Instagib
You have only one life, but your weapons only take one shot to kill. Watch out, because so do the enemy's weapons!

Defuse the bomb
A bomb is spawned somewhere in the level, players must find and defuse it before time runs out, only then will the elevator unlock!

Carry the Flag
One player must carry the flag to the end of the level before the time runs out. You can't shoot when you have the flag, but you can impale Nazis with it or pass it to your friend with the use key!

5

Vampire
Drink the blood of your enemies to survive! Spawn with all weapons and infinite ammo and try to finish the level before your blood bar drains.

Harvester
Harvester pillars are placed randomly around the level, and after each kill, a skull is spawned on the pillars. You must find a pillar and collect the skull before the countdown ends to stay alive!
Mutant BJ All of your enemies are zombie BJs with random weapons!

Rampage
Put your dukes up and knock your enemies out with fists of fury! Keep your adrenaline up to instagib enemies with one punch.

6

Zombie
Nazi zombies are attacking! Kill them by ganging up on them with shots from multiple players, otherwise they reanimate!

Zombie Harvester
Just like harvester, but with Nazi zombies that reanimate for an added challenge.

5. New weapons
Splitwolf brings the pain with an armored 2 player vehicle (one driver to run nazis over, and one gunner) equipped with a mounted gatling gun!

6. Tons of new art

From 8-way boss sprites to gib animations, Splitwolf brings a ton of new art that fits perfectly with the existing look of the game

7. Installation

If you already own Wolf3D or Spear of Destiny, dump all the files loosely into roms/ports/wolf3d/ "
Run RetroPie Setup Select "Update RetroPie-Setup Script"
Select "Manage Packages"
Select "Manage experimental Packages"
Select "splitwolf"
Select "Install/Update from Source"
After installation, you'll be able to launch Splitwolf from the Ports menu in EmulationStation.

Game data:

Game files should be added to roms/ports/wolf3d/ before installation. If not present, the install script will download the shareware versions of Wolf3D and Spear of Destiny.
If you add new game data after install, simply run the following to create new shortcuts:

sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_packages.sh splitwolf configure

8. Support

For RetroPie-specific Splitwolf support and questions (RetroPie installation, game files, etc), post on the RetroPie forums.
For general Splitwolf support and questions (how to build, support for other platforms, map packs, etc), post on the Team Raycast forums.
If you already have Splitwolf up and running and you've found a bug (glitch with the game, crash while playing, etc), please report it using the Splitwolf issue tracker.
If you've found a bug with the RetroPie Setup installer, please report it using the RetroPie-Setup issue tracker.
DO NOT USE ISSUE TRACKERS FOR GENERAL SUPPORT OR QUESTIONS, YOU WILL NOT BE HELPED!
See the Splitwolf wiki for additional details, compilation instructions, game mode instructions, etc.

Is there any way to "project" one of the "split"-screens onto another separate monitor?

I am using a multiseat gaming software called "Softxpand".

doomjedi I need help, I do have the mod in the Wolfenstein 3D/base folder but I cannot play split screen, can you help me?

(after you add your original Wolf3d/SOD files into the folder)
you play it from the batch file Run_SplitWolf.bat, but you have to setup correctly the Wolf3D/SOD version you're using inside that batch file:

SplitWolf4SDL_versions.bat {NUMBER}

{NUMBER}

0 - Wolf3D v1.4 Shareware
1 - Wolf3D v1.4 Apogee Full
2 - Wolf3D v1.4 GT/ID/Activision Full
3 - Spear of Destiny Full
4 - Spear of Destiny Demo

Or you can run the corresponding exe directly with batch file of this format (example):
splitwolf-wolf3d_full.exe --debugmode --split 2 --res 640 400 --splitlayout 2x1
(choose your own preferred resolution and layout 2x1 or 1x2 (vertical or horizontal split))

Hey doomjedi, is the source code available? I looked for it here but couldn't find it. I'm assuming the project is GPL-licensed. ^__^

We never release source code of our mods.
As do 99% of wolf3d modders out there, and not only wolf3d ones.
Those are free mods that take alot of time to make, and it's not fair on a very basic level for others to not only enjoy our free creations (thousands of code lines) , but getting our hard source work for free to make fast clones of our engine and making cheats of our mods.

Unrelated to dry legal terms this norm is widely accepted in all modding communities, sure retro ones. Some (rarely) do willingly release source of their mods and those are appreciated, but players never go as far as to demand those.
As they know that doing so would simply demotivate modders from making mods at all and noone will win.

We are working hard for free for you to enjoy mods.

what do you think the point of OPEN SOURCE is?

I understand the words and dry legal terms.

We make free mods, we do not earn money from "Open Source" policy. Putting alot of our work into it.
Those are community standards, to release source on will only. If standards were different, this mod wouldn't be created to begin with and you won't have the source anyway.

Our mappers wouldn't work hard on maps you can easily cheat through. Coder wouldn't add thousands of code lines as a free tutorial for other coders to make clones of our work and then in internet would be 1000 different custom versions and builds of SplitWolf.
