I had the same issue when I tried it some years ago. It was fairly confusing for me as well, as I didn't have a guide or anything to help. Basically went in blind.

It was a little more interesting after I gave it another shot and kind of figured out how to survive. Never did manage to have pups though.

Know that the game is not realistic in its entirety. The main gripe I have with the game is the consistent use of outdated terms (e.g. alpha, beta, and omega) and the prevalence of hierarchy in gameplay. Otherwise, it is a decent game and may provide some insight into a wolf's life.

Actually I'm pretty sure there are non-aggressive human sprites in WOLF, but they're uncommon and usually have a rifle armed human somewhere nearby. I'm pretty sure there's a scenario/mission/non-sandbox oriented challenge that involves wolf pups being taken by campers and you have to find them, but I've never beaten that challenge.

The overzealous aggression most humans have against the wolves in WOLF makes me think of how it must have been when they were practically eliminated from the Yellowstone area/lower 48 states back in the...1920s, was it? Outdated terms and behaviors are annoying but kind of interesting. Raises up the pressure, too, since WolfQuest is limited in its desire to portray wolves neutrally/positively and are set in a protected national park.

Not surprised there are limits in gameplay as a whole, however. WQ and WOLF are from completely different moral areas in terms of studying animals, and one is 2D while the other is 3D, so it's not surprising the limits one has over the other.

Aayyy Nordue how you bean.

Just opened the game and yeah there are some camper/non hostile humans, but it's hard to say because I got shot by a hunter in a jacket not long after seeing them.

I think I might've confused mission parameters with one from LION, though. There is some missing cub missions, but WOLF doesn't give a mission statement to the scenario, so people snagging up a cub might've been from LION instead.

You are absolutely correct. Personally I think LION's gameplay is superior to WOLF's, but they are both quite challenging. I can never play either game for very long because of how... Slow-paced it is. I also can never find my den in WOLF once I leave it. xD

I wouldn't say superior, but different. :3

Whew-- it's been a while since I've been back here o.o

This is a random question-- is there any way to change how long months last? Yes, the current length is realistic, but it takes stinking forever, and I'm currently trying to let's play the series, and idk people might be getting bored of me just running around and hunting and stuff. Other than just auto-playing it for an extended period of time, is there any way I could change the month length? I put up ep. 11 yesterday, and we're still in the same month as when we started... o.o

Nope, there's no way to change the month length.

For my "Let's Play' series on wolf, I just did a walkthrough on the missions...that seemed easier than the sandbox mode.

Speaking of which, you're making me want to play WOLF again!

Aw, too bad-- I may just have to auto-play for a while off-camera then XD

I think I actually ran across your let's play while trying to figure out how to become the alpha, haha!

You should-- I'd forgotten how fun it is, heh!

(Sorry if this has already been answered, but.. I'm too lazy to run through 217 pages of comments. XD)

I've had thoughts on maybe trying out Wolf, but I gotta know: does installing the DosBox emulator and the game give your computer any viruses? And on a scale of 1 to 10, how hard is it to set up?

Nope dosbox does not give you any viruses. If you subscribe to the forums here....this website has a preconfigured version so all you would have to do is download and run the game:
http://wolf-forum.forumh.net/t574-game-wolf-versions
That would be the EASIEST....though if you don't want to join there...they also have instructions on one of the other threads somewhere for how to set the game up using dosbox.
Hope that helps.

EDIT:
Logged myself in so here's the direct link for that download I mentioned above:
http://adf.ly/246619/http://www.mediafi ... 9g0i5aeif8
the site says after downloading to:
- Extract to c:\ and double click the link file 'WOLF' or create your own link file to DosBox.exe.
Alternatively, run DosBox.exe directly.

I put some effort into putting together a comprehensive guide to running the game in the first post, which should provide all the information and links you need. As Rustic said, DOSBox should not give you any viruses.

I finally went and got the game set up earlier this year and it's pretty neat.
