instructions for use

1 : extracting/installation

- Downloaded and save the files to a temporary folder/location on your system, C:\temp is typical.
- Double click castlekeep.exe, the self extractor will open with a default file/installation path already highlighted, this is C:\Program Files\Return to Castle Wolfenstein\spkat3 by default, and click the 'Unzip' button. The archive will now be installed to that location.

- If this isn't where you have RtCW installed either edit the path or click the 'Browse' button and select the correct folder/location [the files need to be placed in a folder called 'spkat3' directly under the main Return to Castle Wolfenstein folder for the minimod to work properly].

- Optionally you can also click the 'Run WinZip' button to open the WinZip application and manually extract the files to the correct location as per 'spkat3' above.

- If correctly installed you should have a folder called 'spakt3' in the 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' folder and several files therein contained..

2 : shortcuts and running the mod

- Open the newly created spkat3 folder and find the file called 'castlekkep.bat' you can run the mod directly from this file in it's current location by double clicking.

- Alternatively if you right click and select 'Send to > Desktop' it will create an icon on your desktop which you can then double click to launch the mod.

- For Win98 you may need to create a shortcut in the installation folder [right click & select 'create shortcut'] and then manually move the new icon to your desktop.
