Description of Wolfenstein

Description from the publisher:

Wolfenstein is a supernatural/science fiction first-person shooter, based on the video game series developed by Id Software that has been a favorite of 2D and 3D gamers across multiple game iterations and platforms since the early 1980s. In this new take, players battle the Nazi's dark obsession with the occult through epic action and harrowing shooter combat. Filled with ferocious enemies, movie-quality action scenes, unique gameplay environments, an impressive array of weapons and compelling multiplayer gameplay options, it is truly a fitting new chapter in the history of this classic gaming franchise

Read Full Description

US release of the game is basically International release, it includes full English version with audio & video on English, plus text localizations (menu & subtitles) for French, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish & Russian languages (check Notes for details). US release is identical to European release and other International releases.

German release of the game was censored due to German laws: it is less violent, excessive violence elements like severed limbs were removed; also all Nazi symbols like swastikas were replaced by other symbols. Other than that it is similar to other releases.

The game with patches and NoDVD has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10, works fine. The game supports widescreen and high resolutions up to 4k. You may experience some small troubles when you play the game on modern systems, check our Guide and Notes for details

Install & play guide:

  • Mount the disc image. You will need the utility for mounting disc image files, like WinCDEmu, UltraISO, Alcohol 52%/Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools Lite
  • Install the game (if autorun doesn't work - simply launch the installation from Setup.exe inside the disc)
  • You can skip PunkBuster installation if you don't plan to play the game in multiplayer, since PunkBuster is required only for the multiplayer game
  • Also it is recommended to install DirectX from the disc (if you're using Windows 10 - enable DirectPlay, read this or this guide how to do it)
  • After you installed the game - install all patches
  • After that install NoDVD (simply copy Wolf2.exe from the archive and put it in Wolfenstein/SP directory, agree to replace original file)
  • Open Wolfenstein/SP directory directory and find Wolf2.exe. Right click on Wolf2.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work in compatibility mode with Windows XP - try to launch it in compatibility mode with other version of Windows (Win98/ME, Win2000, Vista, etc.)


  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (98, 2000 or XP)
  • International patches are compatible with all versions except German. To update German version use specified patch
  • US release of the game is International release, it includes full English version with audio & video on English, plus text localizations (menu & subtitles) for French, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish & Russian languages. To change the language you just need to add launch parameter to desktop shortcut, like +set sys_lang "english" or +set sys_lang "french". For full list of available languages check PCGamingWiki, for instruction how to add launch parameter check this guide. Also, that method should work with other releases too, probably
  • In German release excessive violence elements like severed limbs were removed, you can return violent elements with German Uncun patch mod
  • NoDVD is required for the launch because the game is using SecuROM DRM protection, which doesn't work on modern systems. That NoDVD "breaks" DRM protection and allows the game to work on modern systems
  • NoDVD for US release should be compatible with all versions of the game, but just in case we added other NoDVDs too
  • It is recommended to install all versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for the correct work of the game, especially Visual C++ Studio 2005 pack
  • Also it is recommended to install RAD Video Tools and K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game works on DirectX 9, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • The game has native support for 16:9 and 16:10 widescreen displays. If you want to play in ultra-widescreen - you will need to use Widescreen Fixer and edit configuration files, like in this guide
  • The game doesn't have quick save option, but it can be enabled by editing the configuration files, read this guide how to do that. Be careful - quick saving on boss battles can break in-game progress, so don't make quick saves when you fight with bosses
  • If you feel that mouse in the game works too slow even after you changed its settings - try to change mouse smoothing and sensitivity in configuration files, check this guide. Also, you can try to disable head bob, if you don't like it
  • The game doesn't have FOV settings, so if you want to change FOV (Field of View) - use FOV Fix and then run the game with these parameters. Alternatively, you can edit configuration files and change FOV manually
  • Also, you can change other graphics settings in configuration files, like enabling the antialiasing, check PCGamingWiki to see the list of possible graphics options
  • There's a Flammenwerfer weapon in game that was available as pre-order bonus. It becomes available during the story, but for everyone who pre-ordered the game that weapon was available from the beginning. However, you can easily make it available in first minutes of the game, by simply changing one line in config-file, read this guide
  • Bodies of dead enemies are disappearing after some time, if you want to disable it - use Permanent corpses mod
  • Regular enemies in the game, like Third Reich soldiers, are talking on English. If you want more authenticity - install 'German Axis' Language Mod, enemies will start talking on German instead of English
  • Don't forget to check PCGamingWiki page if you have troubles

Another thing I noticed is that changing the antialiasing setting in the config file doesnt seem to have any noticeable effect in-game, even setting it to 16x didnt get rid of the jaggies. Setting it thru nvidia control panel didnt work either. What did work was Nvidia Profile Inspector with the 0x000010C1 antialiasing compatibility flag for 8x SGSSAA.

Madman 2024-03-28 1 point

I found that adjusting the FOV using the config file worked well. You just add the line seta g_fov "x", where x is your adjustment. This setting functions opposite what you would assume. Default fov is 80, you cant just set x to 90 and have it work, it will actually make the fov narrower! Set x to 70 and this yeilds an in-game fov of 90.
seta g_fov "70" will give you an in-game fov of 90 degrees.

Madman 2024-03-25 1 point

I just installed the Magipack repack version and everything worked great! I did not need to install any patches or use an additional executable. Thanks dudes!

Wolf4d 2024-02-28 -5 points

Dosn´t work! No executable gfila, only install and uninstall.

Please, don´t make me lose my time

admin 2024-02-22 1 point

@BLENDERNOOB PCGamingWiki says to put Post Process Quality to low if you use FOV Fix. Try to do that, maybe that is the reason

@DEDAPANKO Yes, you need to install all patches. Patch 1.2 is not cumulative patch.
Looks like disabling headbob may result in some technical problems, I think it is critical function for that game. Try to use FOV Fix as alternative variant, PCGamingWiki says it has smoother headbob

blendernoob 2024-01-30 0 point

I have been having issues getting the fov fix to work. Once I put in +set com_singledeclfile 0 into the launch parameters, it crashes my game once the main menu opens up. First it shows a blue and pink environment then the game crashes. I also tried force-fixing the fov using the developer console but every time I move it instantly resets. Any help here?

Dedapanko 2024-01-27 1 point

I disabled headbob and now I have no sprint animation, any fix for this?

Dedapanko 2024-01-27 1 point

One question, do I need to install every patch? As in, does installing only patch 1.2 mean I don't need to download and install patch 1.1? Thanks!

Goddamit Civvie! Pushing average/crappy games to the frontpage! Time for your punishment!

admin 2024-01-22 2 points

@JD-ROM That happens a lot on Windows 10/11 because of Windows Security system when it blocks any changes in system folder - C:/Program Files and C:/Windows. The long way to solve that problem - to enable full administrator access and disable security restrictions. The short and easy way - just re-install the game in non-system folder, like C:/Games

@YUMEE The game removes dead bodies after some time, to unload the system resources. Permanent corpses mod disabled it, obviously. But looks like that mod doesn't work stable, so use at your own risk

@SWEET BELLIC I guess you can change key binding by edit of config files in C:/Users/(Username)/AppData/id Software/WolfSP/base folder. Probably key bindings are written in wolf.cfg file

@CANNED_VENISON Patches should be fine, we used files from Patches-Scrolls, just like PCGamingWiki

I think a lot of people came here after Civvie11's video :-)

JD-ROM 2024-01-19 1 point

For some reason, I can't copy the Wolf2.exe from the noDVD onto the iso to replace the old one. It never comes up with the prompt to replace, it just tells me there isn't enough room to copy. How can I fix this?

Yumee 2023-12-26 0 point

What does the permanent corpses mod do? I'm confused

sweet bellic 2023-12-09 0 point

for some i cant sprint in this game,tried changing it to the right shift button but it didnt do nothing

Mariano F. 2023-11-20 1 point

I've been looking to play this game with non disappearing corpses since forever, here's a solution to scopes and sprint bugs:
1. Download Repack version and Permanent Corpses mod
2. Install Repack
3. Install Permanent Corpses mod and make sure you create the shortcut by following the README in the mod folder
4. Here's the tricky part. Go to this folder:
C:\Users\YOUR PC\AppData\Local\id Software\WolfSP\base
(AppData is a hidden folder) and open wolf.cfg with notepad. Look for this line:
seta g_noViewBob "1"
and modify it to:
seta g_noViewBob "0"
You might want to change the crosshair option aswell, which is right above the "noviewbob" one
5. You're done! Enjoy the game with corpses and no bugs!

HI. LOve this franchise

Canned_Venison 2023-11-18 -1 point

1.2 patch here is busted, keeps prompting me to uninstall the game.

Use the patch from PCGamingWiki instead:

admin 2023-11-11 3 points

About mods - its installation are optional. Considering messages by Mr. Buttram, Permanent Corpses mod is troublesome, so install it at your own risk. That mod was removed from second version of repack by Magipack, looks like it caused troubles to many users

Mr.Buttram 2023-10-26 0 point

I was able to fix my problems by changing the values in the config via notepad. fix sprinting by setting stamina to 1, setting noheadbob to 0 cause it breaks the scopes, and turning crosshair to run.

Mr.Buttram 2023-10-26 0 point

I installed the game with the Set up executable but I'm confused on how exactly to install patches. The corpse patch is definitely working because none of the soldiers are disappearing, but there's no sprint, scope, or crosshair. The game is perfectly playable but I have to use the medallion to increase my movement and I can't fully upgrade the rifle without making it useless.

To the person who gave my query about mounting ISOs using Windows 10 file explorer a down vote: An explanation of this apparent conflict of information would be nice. If the question is lame, all I can say is the fault is with the answer I was given when I asked Bing Chat. All I am trying to do is find out if this is true.

Scrabblizer 2023-10-13 1 point

I don't understand why you need special software to mount the ISOs. Bing Chat said that ISOs can be mounted with Windows 10 File Explorer. Could someone please explain.

Sherly 2023-10-11 0 point

I couldn't uninstall this game before, so I used a third party program to 'force' uninstall it.
The problem I have now is that I cannot reinstall it, as the installer is acting like an 'uninstaller'.
But it doesn't do anything because there isn't anything to uninstall. And even if there were; as I mentioned the proper uninstall options didn't work anyway.
For reference I used a reg cleaner to remove supposedly all traces of the game when it was 'force' uninstalled.
Also; I am running the latest Windows 11.
I did find an old message board where someone else had a similar issue, but their fix was to format their drive... something I really think is overkill for this issue.

Brad 2023-10-08 0 point

It's cool to play this game again. It brings back Memories from the Playstation 3 Era.

However, I'm not able to sprint when I push Shift.. I'm not sure if the Sprint Animation was messed up through Coding while Porting??

admin 2023-09-21 0 point

To Leon: Have you enabled DirectPlay? If yes, what is your system specs?

Leon2000 2023-09-19 -2 points

When i start the game i have black screen and no sound can anyone help me ?

this is soooo fucking good game nice graphics and gameplay and levels

Warbuff1945 2023-09-02 0 point

That did it! Thanks very much :)

admin 2023-09-01 1 point

@WARBUFF1945 Reinstall the game in non-system folder, like C:/Games/Wolfenstein, and try again. It is common trouble on modern Windows OS, when system protection doesn't allow replacing files in system folders (C:/Windows, C:/Program Files) without administrator access

Trying to install the No DVD patch, keeps saying not enough disk space in DVD drive, not giving me to option to replace original file, any help? TiA

admin 2023-08-27 0 point

@MARVYN It is mentioned on, config files are in C:/Users/(Username)/AppData/Local/id Software/WolfSP/base/ folder

Marvyn 2023-08-26 0 point

So, where is the config files for the game? I got it through this site, but while the game runs well, I found the game requires you to have head bob on to use scopes. Mypcgamewiki points I need to use the wolf.config file, but it dont show up when I open the game's paste.

MrCrispy 2023-08-24 0 point

That worked perfectly thank you. Such an awesome game

admin 2023-08-24 0 point

@MRCRISPY Let me guess - you're using Windows 11? The game uses DirectSound system, which is disabled in Windows 11. Try this: enable DirectPlay to make working components of old DirectX in Windows 11, then put dsound.dll in game folder

If it didn't help - install OpenAL and then DSOAL , that will make DirectSound to work through OpenAL sound system. Here's the guide how to install DSOAL (it's on Russian, use translator)

MrCrispy 2023-08-24 0 point

Anyone else having sound issues? The single player has no sound.

Trusteft 2023-08-05 1 point

IMO one of the best FPS of its generation.
The story is fine mix of WWII and scifi, in a semi open world, a small one but still.
There are boss fights, but nothing too impossible.
I played the game to completion when it came out and it was a great fun ride.
The best thing about it was the game/shooting mechanics. It really feels good.

PCGAMER90 2023-08-05 1 point

Whoa, thanks a lot for this upload! Got the game a year ago from another abandonware site but they removed the download for some reason, which is strange, since the game had no viruses and you cannot buy it on any online store, PC or console. Glad it is finally back in the abandonware neighborhood.

PagaNi 2023-08-04 2 points

WOOW, Finaly this game in here!
