    That is great news.

    Is NetWolf going to be a SDL or DOS game?

    If the game is going to be SDL then I would suggest using something like SDL_net to write the network code.

    The benefit of the SDL version would be that it makes it possible for people to run NetWolf without using the DosBox emulator and without worrying about IPX tunnels to connect it to the Internet.

    As I think Lemm is more inclined to work on a DOS multiplayer Wolf3D, you could always defer the SDL version until a later time.

    It's just gonna be DOS for now, because that's what I'm familiar with. (Plus I think it would be cool if it actually ran on DOS computers with an IPX network set up :p)

    If I was going to do a modern version, I think I would choose enet for the networking, since it has a few more features than SDL_Net, but it doesn't require C++ or dictate how you should program your game.

    I still can't log in to diehard wolfers, and I haven't been given a registration confirmation email, so i dunno what's up.

    Guys, help me out...

    Can you check which of the two mutant SpriteNums acts as "alert" frame and which is the "hurt" frame? Or do they have other roles?

    SpriteNums: 227, 231.

    None of the guard types have "alert" sprites of any sort; all 8-directional guards have two separate "hurt" frames. The bosses have no "hurt" frames at all; you can only tell if they're hit if the Bleeding Enemies feature is active, or a digitized sound is played when your gun hits the enemy successfully.

    I meant "brown guard holstering weapon from his pocket"-type frames.

    ; all 8-directional guards have two separate "hurt" frames.

    When each is activated then? Randomly loaded?
