Wolfenstein fans, here is something for you today. Modder ‘AstroCreep’ has ported the SNES version of Wolfenstein 3D to the PC and has just released this mod to the public. This mod uses Executor’s Second Encounter port as a base, meaning that it requires the latest version of ECWolf and Wolfenstein 3D 1.4, and then adds assets directly imported from the SNES version of Wolfenstein.
As the modder claimed, this isn’t a complete experience yet though. AstroCreep used a modified HUD from ECMac and a few placeholder sounds and HUD graphics are left from PC Wolf. Apart from these small differences, though, this is identical to the SNES version as all sprites and textures have been replaced with SNES counterparts.
What’s really cool here is that this port of the SNES version looks better than the real deal. It runs faster and looks better as the SNES version was a pixel-y mess.
Now I don’t know why some would want to play the censored SNES version but hey, that’s the beauty of modding; you can play whatever you want. Now if only modders could port some other FPS SNES games like Jurassic Park (imagine a complete port of that SNES game with the quality of the Visitor’s Center fan game/demo)
