12 Oct 2021 » C-Dogs 1.1.1 Released, Leaderboard Contest Extended!

Here’s a minor wolf3d-related release, which fixes support for some wolf3d mods as well as adding support for the Spear of Destiny mission packs!

Spear of Destiny is often sold together with two additional mission packs, which are supposed to be sequels to Spear of Destiny, but are not made by id Software and resembles fan modifications in quality. With this release, they are mostly* recreated in C-Dogs, so if you already own Spear of Destiny from Steam or GOG, you can try it out for free!

* Note: the wall textures, sprites and bosses are not fully recreated in C-Dogs. They still look like plain Wolfenstein 3D / Spear of Destiny.

In other news, the C-Dogs SDL / Wolfenstein 3D leaderboard contest has been extended to October 24th! Get your entries in for a chance to win prizes!

Finally, the WolfSource discord server has been kind enough to host a #cdogs-sdl channel! If you want to discuss anything C-Dogs and Wolf3D related, come on over: https://discord.gg/Fee7PBY

05 Sep 2021 » C-Dogs 1.0.2 Released!

The Wolfenstein 3D related goodies keep coming! We’ve gone through and tested a bunch of custom Wolf3D and Spear of Destiny mapsets, and fixed support for them. You can grab them all from the Campaign Dogs site!

Custom campaigns

Wolf3D has a long and lively modding community, so this is a significant amount of additional content. Quite a few custom mapsets span the whole 6-episode / 60-map limit, so it will take dozens of hours just to play through them all! Some modders got quite creative and stretched the Wolfenstein 3D engine to its limit, using tricks like “holowalls” in their maps, so some tweaking was necessary to get them working in C-Dogs SDL as well.

We hope you enjoy these new campaigns!

28 Aug 2021 » C-Dogs 1.0.1 Released, and Campaign Site!

We’ve had an amazing response to the 1.0 release last week! Thanks to all new and returning players for checking out C-Dogs 👏

As a few folks pointed out, attempting to run Wolfenstein from Windows Steam can crash the game. This release fixes that bug, as well as adding support for Linux Steam.

Last but not least, Zombie has set up a website for sharing C-Dogs campaigns, “Campaign Dogs”!

Campaign Dogs

Here you can download, rate and share custom campaigns, as well as upload high score or speed runs!

Zombie runs the WolfSource / Wolf3D.net community, a big resource for Wolf3D modding. Please do check it out, especially considering that since C-Dogs SDL supports Wolf3D / Spear of Destiny, it also implicitly supports custom levels made for these games, so who knows … you might find a whole lot of new content available there!

21 Aug 2021 » C-Dogs 1.0.0 Released!

This is a special release, including a built-in mod that allows C-Dogs to play Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny!

If you have Wolfenstein 3D or Spear of Destiny installed from Steam or GOG, they will show up in C-Dogs SDL as campaigns!

Alternately you can get the mission pack from the Downloads page, which includes the shareware Wolfenstein 3D episode 1.

This mod has been in the making for over a year, and along the way lots of features have been added, including vehicles!

C-Dogs SDL should have been version 1.0 long ago, but this big release was the excuse to finally do it 🍾

Which brings me to sad news; C-Dogs SDL is going into hiatus 😔 While it’s been really fun working on this game since 2013, I’m ready to move onto different projects. This doesn’t mean a complete stop; there will be occasional bug fixes and the like.

Happy gaming!
