It deserves a port IMHO.

Why not Wolfenstein?

Because there are already way too many WWII games.

Ah, Wolfenstein...

The first FPS of all times...
4 guns, crappy semi-3d graphics, low AI, and lots of secret passages...

That really should be ported.

Hi, just letting anyone who's interested know im working on this just now.

I'm just slowly going through the code working out what it's all doing, hopefully Ill end up with an exact clone of the game running with OpenGL instead.
I've got the title screen done right now anyway Rasp

You can get the origional mac source from my site: http://www.fax.xmgfree.com/

Wouldn't it be easier to rewrite the drawing routines in OpenGL? You're not still raycasting are you?

Just draw every block with some textured quads and be done with it.

Not shure why you are telling me what to do but I make my own decisions Annoyed
Anyway, all the data files etc are big endian so it makes that extremly difficult. If I get an intel computer though, ill be making it run on intel blah blah..

anyway as far as progress goes theres very little. I got levels loading but I need to tackle this problem (porting a large game) from another direction. If anyone has some links to documents about this kind of thing that would be great.

I doubt it'll be possible to create a universal binary of it. Wolf3D was written way before even the PowerPC's were made so I assume the game itself contains quite a lot of assembly which would be hard to port to the Intel Macs.

Ed, you may wanna try to contact Ryan Greenstone. While he won't help you with the port, he may give some advice on how to continue porting the game.

I would help, but I know nearly nothing about porting.

I think Bill "Burger" Heinman did the Mac port. I might be crazy though.

While you're waiting for the port, try this or this.

Crazy or not you're right - I think he's still heading up Contraband Entertainment, though they've been awfully quite of late...
