Lenis hasse Wiaschtl

"Leni's hasse Wiaschtl?" What's that?

"hasse Wiaschtl" (also "heiße Würstchen") means "hot sausages". The game is a simulation from Futureware 2001. You have to manage your own hotdog stand, buy sausages, bread, beer, sweets, and you have to manage the finances. Then the products want to be sold, and you have to do eventful small-talk with the customers. By the way you can play in the lottery and watch the daily weather forecast. And much more will wait for you...

A short time ago...

Leni, the hero of this adventure, was born in 1957 in Voitsdorf (= a very small hole) which is next to Mayrning (=small town). Although some setbacks (his mother was the victim of a the meatwulf, ...) in his early years he became famous as a dart-player and as a battle cardplayer. He was the fright of all the fish in the Saar (Leni loves dynamit fishing). But Leni strived for something higher, and learned in a monthlengthy training the job of a "sausage-griller". Soon he achieves the "Original-Wuarstbrater-Qualitäts-und-Ehren-Diplom" from the "International Association of United Würstls". His father dies because of "infectus wurstus" 2 month after it. That was too much for Leni: He broke all contacts to his friends, and became homeless. To get enough money, he sold all his things, at last his OWQuE-Diplom to his friend and postman Gottfried.

19 years later Leni inherits the hotdog stand from his uncle. Shortly after the opening ceremony with laser-show and fireworks, he realizes, that he has no legal chance to fund a sausage imperium without the diplom. Luckily he talks to Gottfried, and both decide a wager: If Leni owns $ 1.000.000,00 in one year, he gets the diplom back. Otherwise Gottfried gets the hot dog stand. Now it's on YOU ...

The sound

"Midas Digital Audio Solution" / "libmikmod" plays module files.

The programming

Würstelstand was developed with Watcom C++ 1.0 from Powersoft, and ported to Linux with gcc. Feel free to contact us, if you are interested in the sourcecode, or the technology from Würstelstand.

The bank

The full version of "Würstelstand" is distributed by Frank CDROM will be available soon. If you cannot find it in the shops near you, just request it from us, we will send it to you.

System requirements: DOS/Windows

Yes, a 386 should be enough (because of the Protected Mode)! Minimum 8 MB RAM, a CD-ROM-drive (Audio-CD compatible) and a VGA-card should be enough. The operation system should be DOS or Windows 95. If you want to play it under Windows NT, please deactivate the sound system, otherwise the game might crash.

There are 3 installation modes:
Semmel The small installation needs about 1 Megabyte on the harddisk and the whole CD for playing. But beware: the game might run very slow!
Semmel The normal installation needs about 20 Megabytes of the harddisk and plays the films from the CD.
Semmel The full installation needs about 100 Megabytes from the harddisk. The CD is not needed any longer.

Our test-hardware :
486/DX/33, 20 MB RAM, Gravis UltraSound, DOS, Win95
Pentium/90, 64 MB RAM, SB16, DOS, Windows
Pentium/100, 64 MB RAM, Gravis UltraSound, DOS, Win95
Pentium/200, 32 MB RAM, AWE32, DOS, Windows.

System requirements: Linux

Well, I would say you should have a 80486, 12 MB RAM, a CD-ROM-drive and a VGA-card. The operation system should be Linux 2.0.x or higher, including the glibc 2.1 library. The graphic library we used is called ggi (http://www.ggi-project.org/). You can use it under the console(svgalib). If there is no svgalib available, it tries to use the X-Server, we recommend an 8 Bit X-Server. The music system we used is the libmikmod, which should work with every Linux-supported soundcard.


The Würstelstand distribution is splitted up into the following packets:
Semmel libgii: This packet contains the libraries for the input devices. It is a part of the GGI-system, and is used by the packet libggi.
Semmel libggi: This packet contains the graphic library ggi, which is used by Würstelstand.
Semmel wurst: The main packet of Würstelstand, which is needed in any case. It needs about 20 MB of your harddisc.
Semmel wurst-video: This packet is optional. It contains the film sequences. If it is not installed, Würstelstand tries to play them from the CD-Rom.
Semmel Binary: This is the update (3.9.1999) binary of Würstelstand for Linux. If you have an older version already installed, you just have to update this binary. The full version of Würstelstand is currently only available on CD-Rom, not for download.
