BETA.TXT

Dear Beta Tester:

You have been selected to Beta-test Id Software's hot new game, 
Wolfenstein 3-D.  If you do NOT have an account on Software Creations, 
you MUST get an account before you can access Id Software's BETA 
CONFERENCE (63).  The numbers are (508) 365-9668 [9600 baud], 
(508) 368-4137 [2400] &  (508) 365-9669 [1200].  After you are 
registered on Software Creations, you should go into Conference 63 
and download Wolfenstein 3-D.

There will be a Beta Form included in the .ZIP file that you should 
fill out and upload back into the Conference.  Periodically, there 
will be more recent Beta uploads from us that you should download.  
Included with them will be a list of the bugs that were fixed since 
the last upload.

You will be Beta testing parts 1-3: the entire trilogy.  Part One in 
VGA will be first for beta, then EGA of Part One, then Parts Two and 
Three in both video modes.

We want you to find as many bugs as possible in this game (except for 
those listed below).  Try really weird things, try to break this game 
down -- we dare ya!  Please run through all 3 difficulty modes 
("Don't Hurt Me", "Bring 'Em On", and "I am Death incarnate!") and 
list any bugs you find.  Try and find all the hidden areas!

We want your honest opinions about this game.  If you are a big Keen 
fan, this may NOT be the game for you.  But, if you're the kind that 
could get into Wing Commander, you'll love this game.  Any suggestions 
on improving the game in ANY way will be appreciated.

These are the things NOT finished at this Beta so far:
* A complete Demo loop
* End-of-level Bonus Screen
* Between-level Screen
* High Scores finished
* The readable text within the game (Read This! and Ordering Info)
* End of Game stuff (win or lose)

Please upload your forms as soon as possible, we don't have a lot of 
time before this game is released: April 15th.

Sincerely,

John Romero
Id Software, Inc.

READ_ME.TXT

Beta Testers:

This is the final BETA release for Wolfenstein 3-D, Episode One: Escape
From Wolfenstein.  In the upcoming weeks we will be working on episodes
2-6, so stay tuned for more Nazi-blasting and Big Boss surprises!

Things fixed/added in this BETA since last time:

* Jason has added STEREO SOUND for those of you that have the NEW Sound
  Blaster Pro!  Hear a Nazi yell to your left, you hear it through the
  left speaker!  Cool!  Make sure you read the SB_NOTE.TXT file to see
  how you need to set up your IRQ, etc. if you have your card set
  differently than the factory defaults.

* For those of you who are sick enough, we added the DogYipe digitized
  sound!  (hehe)

* There are now RATIOs at the end of each level, plus the time it took
  you to get through.  There's also a PAR TIME -- if you beat it, you
  will be getting MEGAPOINTS!  If you can't get anywhere near the time,
  you are NOT an expert Wolfenstein player.  The PAR times were taken
  from me (John Romero) playing with both the mouse AND keyboard, cruising
  through each room towards the elevator (not really blazing through),
  killing everything in each room, then adding 30 seconds to the time.
  An excellent example of the speed achieved with mouse&keyboard movement
  is demonstrated by the DEMO.  Let the game go from the Title screen,
  Credits, then DEMO and you'll see.  At least the PARs give you something
  to work towards!  Also, the RATIOs tell you how many percent of the
  KILLABLE objects you toasted, SECRET passages you found, and percent of
  TREASURE you got.  If you get 100% on any of these -- BONUS!

* The DEMO mode only works correctly the FIRST time you run the game.
  We're working on fixing this, believe you me!

* We added an F7 (QuickSave) and F8 (QuickLoad) that is TRULY FAST!  If
  you're having trouble getting through this game -- no longer a problem!
  If you haven't selected a SAVENAME the first time you play, you will be
  thrown into the F2 SAVE GAME screen.  Afterwards, the game just says
  "Saving..." for less than a second!

* We added a "BABY MODE" for everyone that can't even handle "Don't Hurt Me!".
  Yes, even your girlfriends can play this game!

* The Big Boss Dude is lots easier to kill (you can even kill him with a
  machine gun!).  The end of the game isn't finished yet, as well as the
  articles "Read This!" and "Ordering Info".

* The sliding walls now SLIDE!  They look VERY COOL!  The noise they make
  when they are triggered is kinda soft, so we're beefing that up a bit.

* Can everyone find the hidden level? (WITHOUT USING W-F10?)  It's been
  totally re-drawn!

* We added Mouse Sensitivity!  No more MouseArm affliction!  (Hopefully)
  Let Uncle John give you a little hint: Don't just use the mouse by itself!
  Use the mouse AND the keyboard!  I use the mouse for turning left & right,
  firing and strafing.  Use the keys for accelerated turning, moving forward
  and backward, and for Super Speed (SHIFT KEY).  Only by mastering this
  control combination can you declare yourself a Master Wolfenstein Player.

* That annoying flashing thing in the top-left-corner is GONE!  TOAST!

* Whenever you hear a dog barking, but don't see anything but guards --
  you know what I'm talking about -- THAT'S BECAUSE THE DOGS HAVE BETTER
  HEARING THAN THE GUARDS AND THEY HEARD YOU WHILE THEY'RE IN ANOTHER ROOM!
  DOGS CAN'T OPEN DOORS!


Everybody -- back to slogging through the castle once more!  Tell me if you
have any problems or find any bugs!  Above all -- HAVE FUN!

*** BETA VERSION! -- REVIEWERS COPY ONLY ***
Please do NOT distribute.  This version of Wolfenstein 3-D is NOT
shareware, nor in the public domain.  It cannot be distributed by
any person without Apogee's written permission.

The final version will be released May 1st, 1992 into shareware.

This version is incomplete, and contains known bugs.  This version will
only allow itself to be played a pre-determined number of times, then
it will cease to function.  It will stop working beyond May 1st, 1992.
These safety measures are necessary because many of our other beta
versions have been circulated on bulletin boards.  These measures are
simply our way of playing-it-safe.

General differences

  • The main menu cursor starts off now at “Read This!” the first time

Graphical changes

  • The “VGA version” logo on the initializing screen has been replaced by a “in COLOR” logo

Notes

  • The really release date is unknown but HELPART.WL1, ORDERART.WL1 and WOLFART.WL1 are pretty filled out, so it was definitely between last Beta version and Initial release

File listing

  • The timestamps aren't the original ones but thats all i have :-(

Version 1.1 (1992-05-31) 6-Episode Beta

Thanks to gerolf 👍

Compiled May 31, 1992
VGA version

README.TXT

Beta Testers:

Here is the FINAL BETA of Id Software's Wolfenstein 3-D product.
All six episodes are finished, with the following exceptions:
        
        * All the PARs aren't set (the 1:30 ones)
        * The High Scores screen doesn't show episode #'s
       
Play them all (mostly 4-6; you've already played 2-3, right?) and
tell us what you think about the new wall graphics (lots of 'em)
and bosses.  Schabbs should now be at an appropriate level of
toughness, and Hitler is MUCH tougher.

We're releasing this game REALLY SOON -- so the first BETA reports
that come out will help us the MOST!  Thanks for everything guys.
If you would like an autographed copy of the Wolf3d Hint Book,
send Jay a message requesting one.

Later,
John Romero
Id Software, Inc.

Notes

  • This Beta version requires a date before September 15, 1992 otherwise it quits with Sorry, BETA-TESTING is over. Thanks for your help.

Version 1.1 to 1.2 Patch (1992-06-28)

Released June 28, 1992
Distributed by Apogee Software, Ltd.
Released for Shareware, 3-Episode and 6-Episode version

This patch is also known as “The elevator fix”.

PATCH.DOC

To use this patch for Wolfenstein 3-D, you must copy the two files
(MAPHEAD.WL? and GAMEMAPS.WL?) to your current Wolfenstein 3-D
directory.  Doing this will erase the current equivalent files,
but that's exactly what you want to do.

This patch will allow you to access the secret level from the first
episode (first level) of the game.
