Update August 2016: The download link was broken, so that's been fixed. I have also added instructions down below.
One of the things that always irked me about Wolfenstein 3D is that its control scheme is a little too oldschool. The game features what I'd call 'strafe mode', instead of dedicated strafe keys, so you can't really play it like you would any other FPS. So online I found there's a top-notch port of Wolfenstein 3D to windows called Wolf4SDL. I grabbed the source code, made it so your left/right keys always make you strafe, and made it so the mouse doesn't move you forward/black, and boom, now I can actually play Wolf3D!
How to play
- Extract zip somewhere, notice the two EXEs: Wolf4SDL-full.exe and Wolf4SDL-shareware.exe. Make sure all .dll files are included.
- Put all Wolf3D .WL6 or .WL1 files in the same folder
- Double click on EXE matching the files you put in (WL1 means shareware, WL6 means full version)
- In the options menu, set the forward/back/left/right to W/A/S/D
