Hi guys!

I wouldn't border you if this game issued in 2001 wouldn't make me say after replaying for a while "just perfect, just for all time".

Since ~2010 it became free (thx to id Software reveled their engines source code) and got Linux version as well as tons of mods, maps and other stuff.

My kids, playing mostly CS GO found its multiplayer very funny and got a lot of fun.

It runs smoothly on 32-bit and 64-bit on tahr and later on older hardware. And its mp servers are still surprisingly full. Since 18 years! )

So check it out!

Linux engine files (ioRTCW): https://github.com/iortcw/iortcw

ioRTCW + game files: http://wolfenstein4ever.de/index.php/downloads/summary/7/2495

Venom mod (HD textures, shaders, better models): http://wolfenstein4ever.de/index.php/downloads/viewdownload/56/2499


cheerz!

Could you explain exactly what you need to do to download and install this and run it?

Dear @bigpup,

it is very easy. (if you know quake like games in principal)

you put game engine somewhere (/usr/local/games/) for me
or make install does it

then you put all *.pk3 files (they are resource files) into main/ subdir in the engine dir or there is also ~/.wolf dir for users files created after first launch I suppose. You may also put *.pk3 filese there.

I suppose http://wolfenstein4ever.de/index.php/downloads/summary/7/2495
has everything: engine and .pk3 files

But I haven't checked it cause got my .pk3 files from the bought CD and added some extra .pk3's with HD textures and etc.

the game is perfect, wish you success )

There are no .pk3 files there. The page says the download size is 1.1GB, but if you click the download link, it only offers to download about 90MB - which are just the engines (for Windows, Linux, and macos I think).

Hah.

Zips inside zips inside yet more zips.....as jamesbond says, this looks like just the game engines. So; where d'you get these .pk3 files from.....and what do these actually do? Are these the 'storylines', episodes, or whatever?

I'm sorry I did not checked it. Try this one. If there will be problem I will upload my original resource files .pk3

http://wolfenstein4ever.de/index.php/downloads/summary/76-rtcw-full-versions/2296-rtcw-1-4-pack-by-reflex

..and don't forget to put only .pk3 file into /main dir of the game

Yepp. all these stuff and textures, models, scripts, game menu and etc. Don't forget after getting original .pk3 files to add HD texture pack and put it into main/ dir of ioRTCW folder.

Hmm...

That's no good either. You've got a 445 MB download which, when you go to extract it, gives you 1.5 MB-worth of WAV files. And that's ALL you get.

Looks like a waste of time. Never mind; easy come, easy go.....and Malwarebytes BrowserGuard was flagging it up as infested with Trojans, anyway. Good job I'm not running Windoze, ain't it? Rolling Eyes

That is not true. you used XArchiver that cant read the file correctly. Try another archiver. I've seen all *.pk3 files needed using UExtract but with 0 bites size. I suppose something uncommon with the zip file.

Sorry, I've used my original pk3 from a CD, so...

@ takenp:-

UExtract is exactly what I did use. Never use anything else. Can't get on with XArchiver.

As you said, I did get all files showing, but the total size of the directory was only around 1.3 MB. The sound files were the only ones that actually seemed to extract correctly, so.....I tend to agree with you; something wrong with the .zip file itself.

Which is a shame..... Never mind. Can't be helped. Sad

Hey guys,

I can extract that archive with UExtract. It's not a ZIP, though, it's renamed RAR.
In my case 7z kicks in and extracts it:
Code:
Can not open the file as [zip] archive
The file is open as [Rar] archive

The extracted stuff weights 470M.
Maybe you have older version of p7zip? Mine's 16.02 (full version with 7z binary).
Anyway, try renaming it to *.rar. Should help if you have unrar installed.

Greetings!

@ SFR:-

Jake, having said that, d'you think the portable Windows version of 7Zip would handle it, running under WINE? I have this portable functioning well in most Puppies; I've never had much luck with the Linux p7zip, for some reason.....

The 'portable', from PortableApps.com, is version 16.04.

(I know for a fact that RAR seems to be a very popular compression format for Windoze.....and that a lot of these Windoze kiddies have a habit or renaming zip archives, without telling anybody. Go figure.) Rolling Eyes

I have used the following peazip version on precise and bionic with success on most any rar or 7zip archive

https://github.com/giorgiotani/PeaZip/releases/download/6.6.1/peazip_6.6.1.LINUX.GTK2-2_i386.deb

No particular reason to use that version except it was latest at the time,

All the peazips are here if you want the latest or different
https://github.com/giorgiotani/PeaZip/releases/

Some people don't like that its closed source.
Did not need any dependencies, seems to have them all in the 10MB package.
On the peazip.desktop file I changed the
Code:
Exec=peazip %F

to
Code:
Exec=peazip

as it was giving startup errors
