(Solved) Please link to The DOS Spear of Destiny shareware

Post by stathmk »

I’m putting together a spreadsheet of mods that I’ve found to send to Barry. I looked at http://www.wolfenstein3d.co.uk/adds_VWX.htm#wolfshar for The Wolfenstein 3D shareware alpha, v1.0, v1.1, v1.2, v1.4, SDL, & Spear SDL. I can’t find the DOS Spear of Destiny shareware at http://www.wolfenstein3d.co.uk/adds_STU2.htm#spearshar or http://web.archive.org/web/201410221313 ... loads.html .

Can somebody please link to The DOS Spear of Destiny shareware? I might use it for a 2-level project.

Hi stathmk,

I uploaded the 2-level demo here, I think it only came as v1.0:

This page is pretty good for shareware versions, though you need to run the Dos installer in some of them first:

Thank you. Your first link doesn't have the installer. The second link is to a zip of a slightly different size that includes that installer.

There is a v1.4 of the demo as well. I'll post a link to it here if I find it. If it's in an Abandonware site, I'll just have to download it and provide a temporary link until it finds a more permanent (and legal) home.

Thank you for following up on this. No, the link I thought was to v1.4 was in fact still v1.0. I did about a half-hour search for the version elsewhere, but I didn't find anything except v1.0. But I will post a proper link if I unveil v1.4 somewhere. :)

Sorry for the off-topicness here, but I thought I'd ask: does anybody know if Romero (or somebody else) ever released the beta version of Wolf? I don't mean the alpha we've had for quite a few years now, but this one:

Thanks,
