I've been playing 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' since the day it was first released and I still play it to this day, 18 years later. It's definitely the best World War II singleplayer game ever made and the many mods and maps created by our Wolfenstein Community are testament to that fact. I've created this HD texture modification over the past 7 months and it's been very challenging, but also very rewarding. This is the most extensive retexturing of the game to date and I hope it adds to the enjoyment of playing this classic 'First Person Shooter' for all players, old and new.
I've used the best HD textures I can find, the majority of which I've created on my own, however, there's also some textures from other HD packs created for Return to Castle Wolfenstein included in this release and also some from the excellent work created by Sneakerman for 'Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory'. I've also retextured the game models. - Wolf Enstein
Wolf:ET mapper, ETc| OnkelBob of the "Extreme Terror Clan, has released a new version of his wonderful map, 'Battle of Monte Cassino'. This release takes artistic map design to another level, being in the same league as other epic creations such as, 'Dingenskirchen' and 'Praetoria Mission 3'. If you haven't played this superb map yet then you're definitely missing out on an excellent Wolfenstein experience.
Set in a fortress above the small town of Cassino in Italy, the Allies and Axis are set on a collision course, it's a fight to the death. The mighty Fortress Monte Cassino on the Axis Gustav Line has repeatedly stopped the Allies from making their way to Rome.
They must get their hands on the Axis secret map of this vitally strategic combat area, in order to obtain the Information they require to win the war. The Axis troops must protect the secret map at all costs, as the information contained in it can decide the fate of this turning point in history.
Loffy has released an updated version of his excellent 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' singleplayer puzzle-orientated map, 'RtCW Elude'. The reason for this new release was due to feedback from our Wolfenstein Community, informing Loffy that some players couldn't see some map models, such as the grand piano.
The WWII military conflict rages on and you are fighting for the Allies as a United States Ranger-trained agent for the Allied Office of Secret Actions, 'OSA', your mission is of outmost importance. You must track down and assassinate Oberstgruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Strasse, aka, "Deathshead".
Can you solve all the puzzles and complete all the tasks in order to successfully complete your mission?
Loffy has released his new singleplayer mission for 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' and it has a rather unique playing style. The map contains 7 maps that are set out in a puzzle-solving environment which are challenging to complete, but also lots of fun to play.
Can you solve all the puzzles and conquer the tasks ahead in order to complete the mission?
It's been a while since we heard anything from the 'ReBorn to Castle Wolfenstein' team, so we're glad to report that they have just released a new video to highlight the progress they're making with this 'RtCW' modification. The level being featured hear is 'Kugelstadt'.
This is the latest release of Yo$hik's classic 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' singleplayer adventure, 'RtCW Vendetta'. There's new level design, upgraded textures, the artwork was redrawn, a complete sound over-haul has been performed and many other new things too. This release runs on the 'ioRtCW' engine and also contains many elements from the 'RealRtCW' modification.
This release is also available in two seperate formats. There's the standard release that works in conjunction with the 'CD' version of the game and also with the 'RtCW Steam' version. However, there is also an excellent 'standalone' version of the mission which can also be enjoyed by those who don't own a copy of 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein'.
Also note, for English-speaking players, that there's an English translation file provided for you in the download.
The Allied Intelligence Agency has learned that German scientists and engineers are developing a new air apparatus, known as the "Helicopter", with combat prototypes already being operational. These deadly new aircraft can destroy armoured vehicles and infantry with ease.
Your mission is to seek out and assassinate all important persons of the Third Reich who are associated with this project, obtain any secret documentation pertaining to its development and steal a prototype of the new aircraft, if possible.
Hellbaron has released a video that highlights his excellent specular shader feature in 'RtCW Venom Mod 6.5' . This is a feature you won't truly get to appreciate by merely looking at in-game screenshots, so watch the video and enjoy the superb visual 'eye candy'.
More great news for all 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' singleplayer fans, as Yo$hik releases news of an update for his classic mission, 'RtCW Vendetta'. The entire project has been upgraded, with a new, over-all design, including new character voices, models, textures, artwork and sound quality.
This new version will be based on the modern 'ioRtCW' engine and will also contain the 'RealRtCW' weapons mod.
This is the updated version of my HD Pack for 'Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory'. There are now two files in the download, however, the larger file is not downloaded by the players joining the server, only the small 14MB file is downloaded directly. - Wolf Enstein
Mod Installation for Server-Admins:
Put the '.pk3' files into the 'etmain' folder only and the small file will be downloaded by players joining your server. They'll have to go to Wolffiles.de in order to download and use the main HD texture pack.
To uninstall this mod just delete the file.
Installation for Players:
Put the '.pk3' files into your 'etmain' folder. If it's also in the 'etmain' folder of a gameserver you join you will see the HD-textures, weapons and uniforms in-game.
Apparently, this version of our 'Wolf: ET' HD Pack is still having to be downloaded from the servers when players, who don't already have the file, connect to them. This is my fault, I made a last minute change to the beta 2.5 version, just prior to releasing it. The file isn't huge, about half a gigabyte in size, but some servers still have slow download speeds, even in today's modern internet world. My apologies to all of the folk who helped me in creating the HD Pack.
An updated version is already being worked on and we'll notify you all when this is completed. My apologies to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this unexpected development. - Wolf Enstein
"I created this HD texture pack modification in order to give Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory a more up-to-date appearance.
I've used the best HD textures I can find, many of which I've created on my own, also utilising some from other HD packs created for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and some from the excellent work created by Sneakerman, also for Wolf: ET. Many thanks to Harlekin from [!!!]Hirntot for putting me in touch with him.
I've changed the weapon skins, the vehicle skins and also the skins for the soldiers, giving them a more realistic appearance. I hope you all enjoy using the new HD pack and that it adds to your pleasure of playing one of the best team-based, objective-focussed FPS titles ever created." - Wolf Enstein
Mod Installation for Server-Admins:
Put the .pk3 file into the etmain-folder. If players without the file join your server they will have to download it from your server in order to join it. The file is 637MB in size. In order to avoid this server download, players should go to Wolffiles.de and download the file from there.
This version of the mod replaces the textures and 4 of the Axis troops models. The Axis medic model is unaffected. To uninstall this mod just delete the file.
