SPEAR OF DESTINY

DATELINE: JULY 31, 1992
BETA TESTERS:

Yes!  It has finally arrived after months of waiting -- the Spear of
Destiny BETA!  We hope you like our latest creation because we just
spent two months making it!

Things to note:

* THIS IS A COMMERCIAL PRODUCT!  NON-UPLOADNESS, NON-COPYNESS!
  NON-GIVE-FRIENDNESS!  NON-GIVE-MOMNESS! (you get the idea)

* To get right into the game, you need to bypass the copy protection.
  To do that, type BETA and you're in!  YOU HAVE UNTIL AUG. 15TH!

* The title screen was shabbed together in 5 minutes by Tom, so pardon
  the awesome scanned images you see there.  The REAL title is giving
  my stinky little graphics grabber some trouble, so you'll see it in
  the 2nd BETA update.

* The High Score screen looks just as shabby as the normal Wolf3D one.
  I am REALLY going to fix this soon so it looks like it belongs
  on a shelf in an actual store.

* End of Game: the lame art/animation you see after you "wield the spear"
  was OBVIOUSLY scribbled in 10 minutes by "Mr. Beta Art", Tom Hall. Also,
  the sad text-article-like paragraphs (like in Wolf3D) are going to be
  replaced by a decent, commercial-quality ending; not like some steamy
  little shareware ending.

* The sparks that fly out from ... oops!  Almost gave away a neat part of
  the game!  Well, the sparks will be fixed in the next BETA update --
  they look sub-Master of the Pixel-ish at this point because of a TRUE last-
  minute bug!

* There's lots more neat music from The Prince -- plus a cool little
  digitized sample for when you get the chaingun!

* There's 2 secret levels.  Man, they're tough!

* Tell me if your Joystick Configuration works correctly.  I suspect
  it won't.  I'm sorry.

* The debug keys are now easily available -- no more "/goobers" from
  the command-line.  Just hold down "Alt-LeftShift-BackSpace" and you'll
  be able to use these debug keys:
        TAB-W   Warp to level
        TAB-E   End the level (doesn't skip 2 anymore)
        TAB-I   Free Items
        TAB-N   No-Clipping (YES, IT'S BACK!  YEAH!)
  The "MLI" cheat is also still in.

So there you go!  Have fun -- we have a Hint Manual planned for this one
as well.  By the way, the Wolfenstein 3-D Hint Manual should be finished
printing around Aug. 5th!  Soon you too will own an autographed copy!

Keep those comments coming,

BETA TESTERS!!

Thanks for testing the first Beta of Spear of Destiny -- we got lots of
good bug reports, most notably from Douglas Howell.  Let's give a hand
to Doug everybody!!!  <CLAP,CLAP,CLAP,ad infinitum>

Has everyone gotten their Hint Books yet?  Hope so -- they're cool, eh?

Well, here's BETA #2 of SOD.  There shouldn't be much left that's wrong
in it, but I'M SURE SOMEONE WILL FIND SOMETHING!

Things that aren't finished:

* The actual ending of the game.  After the 'BJ WINS' screen, you'll go
        directly to the High Scores, with NO NEAT ENDING!  This is being
        done right now.

* There will NOT be a story at the OPTIONS MENU to read.  We're doing a
        real manual for that.

Things to note:

* You will all get a box copy of this game when it's finished, provided
        I've gotten BETA reports from you with valid bugs.  If you didn't
        BETA this game, no need to be rewarded, eh? (The box might have
        a holographic sticker on it!)

* The keyword 'BETA' is still how you get past the NEWLY IMPROVED copy
        protection screen.

* Like the menus and everything with that blue marbled background?  Good.

* After getting the Spear, the level number remains at 18 now. Used to
        be 21, but that made everyone ask where levels 19 & 20 were (which
        are secret levels).  And YES, the RED LEVEL is HELL!

* The time's up on this BETA on September 15th, but the game will be
        formally released on September 8th, so BUST THEM BRONCOS!

Thanks for all your hard work, we really appreciate it!

Wolfenstein 3D Universal Patching Utility

This utility recognizes the following (X marks latest):
  * Ultimate Challenge UAC -> No UAC
  * Ultimate Challenge No UAC -> UAC
This program will identify if you have an old version of a supported game, if
so it will patch up to the version considered to be the latest. To patch, only
the game data files are needed. Optionally, if the game executable are present
they will be patched as well.

This patch should be run in the same directory as the data you wish to patch.
