This is the last version of the old HWE with new features, but new bug fix releases of the old HWE are still possible. However, my main focus lies on finishing the first version of the new HWE (Cross-platform version) now. Stay tuned :-)

08/18/2015 - HAVOC'S WOLF3D EDITOR V0.3.6 RELEASED

Today I present to you a new version of HWE (Download). This new version includes a reimplemented flood fill functionality that doesn't use a fixed size stack, but more importantly it fixes two rather annoying bugs: One in the zoom feature and the other one in the solid rectangle tool. See the latest changelog for details:

  • Reimplemented flood fill functionality
  • Fixed a bug in the zoom slider control that didn't allow to directly select intermediary zoom factors
  • Fixed a bug in the solid rectangle tool that didn't allow to place rectangles that are only 1 tile wide

07/15/2015 - HAVOC'S WOLF3D EDITOR V0.3.5 RELEASED

Today I present to you a new version of HWE (Download). This new version improves the Autofloor functionality by taking secret rooms into consideration. This should have been in since the first public version, but at first I couldn't think of a good way to implement it and later on I had forgotten that I wanted to add it. Oh well. Apart from that, I've fixed some grammar mistakes in several dialogs, but that's about it, so the latest changelog is pretty short:

  • Autofloor functionality now takes secret rooms into consideration
  • Fixed grammar mistakes in several dialogs

03/27/2015 - HAVOC'S WOLF3D EDITOR V0.3.4 RELEASED

Today I present to you a new version of HWE (Download). This new version adds WAD file support and some requested features, and fixes some bugs. It doesn't include the graphics and audio editing ability, as I've decided to start HWE from scratch using Qt and making the editor cross-platform, i.e. not only supporting Windows, but Linux and Mac OS X as well. This new version will start out as a map editor as well, and will get other editing abilities later on. Anyway, here's the changelog of the latest version:

  • Added WAD file support (Used in source ports such as ECWolf)
  • Added a project files selection dialog
  • Last opened project is now remembered by the "Open Project" option
  • The current map number is now displayed in the window title
  • Reduced the maximum map size to 180x180 tiles due to restrictions of the GAMEMAPS file format
  • Fixed several bugs in the "Find & Replace" functionality
  • Fixed broken Blake Stone support

That's all for now. Take care!

06/06/2014 - SOURCE CODE OF ABSENCE SDL AND HITLER STRIKES BACK SDL RELEASED

I've decided to release the source code to the SDL versions of Absence (Download SDK) and Hitler Strikes Back (Download SDK). You can download the source code releases in the Downloads section as well. The Absence SDK also includes the WDC map definition file (HV1.wmc) that I used to create Absence. Use the normal WL6 map definition file (WL6.wmc) which comes with WDC for Hitler Strikes Back.

There'll be some interesting news soon. Stay tuned :-)

09/05/2013 - WEBSITE BACK ONLINE AND UPDATES

Sorry for the downtime, but Dugtrio17, who kindly hosts my website, switched to a new web server, and it took a while to set up the website again. Anyway, I used the downtime to change a few things on the website. First of all, I've removed the guestbook again, as it wasn't really used by anyone. Secondly I've changed the name of the website a bit to avoid copyright infringement. I admit that it's long overdue to change the website's name, but better late than never :D

Thirdly I've worked on HWE a bit again, and slowly adding support for graphics and audio editing. Here's a screenshot of the current WIP VSWAP editing screen:

I can't really tell, when I'll release the next version of HWE. I know there are some bugs in version 0.3.3, e.g. a bug in the find & replace feature that makes the editor crash, so I'll try to release the next version as soon as possible. Stay tuned :-)
