News nybble: Wolf3D and Doom Trilogy updates

A new version of the Doom Trilogy is available from R-Comp through !Store – priced at ¬£14.99, or available in ‘My Software’ as a free update if you have already purchased. If you have an aversion to purchasing through !Store, ‘over the counter’ at Wakefield is also an option.

There¬† have been some small improvements to Doom, the main game in the pack, but the headline feature is the inclusion of an updated and enhanced copy of Wolfenstein 3D, thanks to work done by Jon Abbott and internal RCI staff. The game now works natively on modern hardware without any need for Aemulor, and enhancements include new sound effects, a ‘damage indicator’ (whereby the screen flashes red when you take any damage), and a default higher resolution screen mode (subject to monitor compatibility).
