    I appreciate your help, in particular the fact that you took the time to go to your files and take a picture, but sadly I'm still confused. :)

    I wasn't sure how the 1.0 Wolf3D would recognize the other main vpks unless I installed all four of the vpks that come in the 0.5 package, so that's what I did. It seemed weird that there were now 4 Wolfenstein bubbles on the home screen but I figured that it isn't a big deal. But before going further I tried to play the full 0.5 version of Wolfenstein and it didn't work.

    I then wasn't sure if I was supposed to just delete all files in the Wolf3D data folder or what, so I simply installed the 1.0 package on top of it. Here are the results.

    1. vitaWolfen bubble, says nothing on bubble menu. When I enter it I'm asked if I want to play shareware Wolf or SoD demo.
    2. vitaWolfen bubble, menu says Shareware. Plays with no sound.
    3. vitaWolfen bubble, menu says SoD Demo. Plays with no sound. Crashed when I died.
    4. vitaWolfen bubble, says SoD Full. Doesn't play; black screen.


    I apologize because I know that the problem still must be on my end but I'm not sure exactly what needs to be installed and in what order.

    Vitawolfen v0.5 had a separate vpk and bubble for each game/version and did not support sound. These are the bubbles you listed as 2, 3 and 4.
    You can uninstall them.

    Vitawolfen v1.0 has a single VPK and bubble and supports sound. It then detects what games you have datafiles for (in 'UX0:data/Wolfenstein 3D') and lists them as options. This is the bubble you listed as 1.
    If it is only listing shareware wolf and sod demo then it has not found the full game files in 'UX0:data/Wolfenstein 3D'

    Delete all contents of 'UX0:data/Wolfenstein 3D' and copy the data files from the full version of WOLF and/or SOD into there. http://i.imgur.com/oCauFyX.jpg

    Then play via the bubble you listed as 1, and it will show the options to launch the full versions. http://i.imgur.com/3OxMfGM.jpg

    Sorry for the late reply, this is my first time back on the Vita for some further experimenting. Thanks for the continued help.

    I found the Wolf3D and SoD files on an abandonware site and tried to do what you suggested. It seems that Spear of Destiny works - that is, it's detected by the program and plays when I press the button to begin. Wolf, on the other hand, still doesn't work for some reason. Error C2-12828-1. The strange thing is that this VPK DOES detect the Wolf3D full package, and gives me a separate button to begin. When I press the button though, I get the error.

    Obviously I'm still doing something wrong. The Wolf3D package came inside a folder, and there's another folder alongside the files. Something about Wolf3D v11 Gus or something like that. Additionally, next to the folder that contains all the files is a MACOSX folder. Should that folder structure be obeyed? I tried a couple of different combinations but all that did was render the Wolf3D files undetectable.

    One last thing: When I installed all the Wolf3D files (not the folders), and then proceeded to do the same with SoD, there was a Wolf3D exe overwrite. I wasn't sure if that should have happened.


    EDIT! Ah, the problem seems to have been an incorrect version of Wolfenstein. The site I found it on offered several different versions (Apogee, DOS, etc.) so I suppose it was a matter of trial and error until I found the right one. Aside from continued crashing when I die in SoD the games appear to be working now. Thank you again for your help!

    Have you considered porting Blake Stone - Aliens of Gold and Blake Stone - Planet Strike? The games use a very similar file structure to this vitaWolfen port.

    That port is available through chocolate doom, you just need to add the WAD files.
