What is a WL6 file?

A WL6 file is a game data file used by the full, six-episode version of iD Software's Wolfenstein 3D. It contains a portion of the game's data, such as its maps, audio files, or graphics files. Various Wolfenstein 3D modding utilities can extract or edit the data WL6 files contain.

More Information

The six-episode version of Wolfenstein 3D contains nine default WL6 files:

  • AUDIOHED.wl6

  • CONFIG.wl6
  • GAMEMAPS.wl6
  • MAPHEAD.wl6
  • VGADICT.wl6
  • VGAGRAPH.wl6
  • VGAHEAD.wl6

In the original, shareware version of Wolfenstein 3D, these files were saved with the .WL1 extension. In the three-episode version, these files were saved with the .WL3 extension.
