A port should not ship with a mod. Mods should be optional.

GZDoom ships with some .pk3 files to add brightmaps to the original games. This is basically a mod that ships with the port, but it is easily disabled if you don't like it.

I mentioned earlier in the thread that it would be nice to a RR HRP.

Over in the PolymerRTX thread, ICD upscaled textures with ML to make textures / sprites that were faithful but looked much nicer.

My guess is that he used this:

https://developer.nvidia.com/gwmt

But I've seen some really good packs that came out using ESRGAN.

If someone has a dump of sprites/textures from RR, a similiar mod can be created for this project.

This is great, thanks for this. I can finally play the games again. It's also nice that ripping the music to .ogg works, and thanks to Marphy Black for the info.

So far the only things I've noticed which are fairly minor is climbing ladders is touch and go, and the sound effects constantly pop and click which is kind of annoying after long play sessions.

Thank you axl for packaging the widescreen fixes, and thank you Phredreeke, fgsfds and Dzierzan for making them.

Do you plan to support Redneck Deer Huntin' ?

Unfortunately, there are some problems with the processing of sprite images and characters. The edges of the sprites are pixel, scary and unnatural faces of the characters), you still can not do without Photoshop. But in any case, Neural Networks are the most effective and fastest way to give the old games a new look. Here are some examples:

I started on an upscale pack for Redneck Rampage which I never released. The methods I used I would consider obsolete now. My current approach tackles the harsh edges you mention by preprocessing the image with a custom antialiasing script. If I decide to return to RR the same approach should work there as well.

This is a good idea, I previously stroke a sprite (Photoshop> Filter> Other> Minimum). It gave a great result, but you still have to delete all the excess.

Sorry for the dumb question but NRedneck github has no readme, and I can't find instructions anywhere. How do I get rednukem to detect both games from the GOG installer? I've extracted the GOG installer with innoextract. If I put all the game files in the root of ~/.config/Rednukem, it finds the game. However, if I put the game files in sub folders (like ~/.config/rednukem/Redneck Rampage and ~/.config/rednukem/Redneck Rides Again), it doesn't detect them.

Thanks :)

Hi,
After months of reverse engineering and reimplementing it on EDuke32 engine my RR port reached its public release state.

Rednukem is a open source project based on EDuke32 which allows you to play Redneck Rampage, Redneck Rampage: Rides Again and Duke Nukem 3D with high degree of accuracy to their original DOS versions.

Current version is still beta and possibly has various bugs. Please report any bug or problem you've encountered here.

Source code

Windows x64 binary


Can you add a readme to your Redneck Rampage port?

I think easiest way is rename REDNECK.GRP from rides again to RA.GRP for example and put all files to main folder(you'll have REDNECK.GRP, RA.GRP, REDNECK.RTS there)

Either way, please make sure that Red Nukem has a readme file, since there currently isn't one.

EDIT: GOT IT!! My problem was that I zipped up the music files with compression. When I used the "store only" option to create redneck_music.zip, it works! On linux, just need to do:

zip -0 redneck_music.zip *.ogg && mv redneck_music.zip redneck_music.dat


I will post my full setup once I get everything working. Route 66 is still failing with the error "Map "/Route66\Start.map" not found or invalid map version!" .. once I get that resolved everything should be working

END EDIT


Thanks!! That seemed to work well. I have one last question.. I was struggling to get the music working all weekend and never did have any success with it. I tried following this post down to the letter and I still can't get it working. I'm not sure I have my files in the right place? I really don't know how these grpinfo files are supposed to work

Here's a screenshot of everything how I currently have it, and where everything is located. Can anyone point me in the right direction, I'm having a lot of trouble with this.

Thanks, I was wondering if the inverted slashes might be an issue. I just tried that though and I still get the same error, just with all forward slashes this time. Any other thoughts? I appreciate the help, I've spent a lot of time trying to get everything up and running

Seems like the paths don't get passed nicely or something...
Having a slash at the start would start searching for Route66 path from the root '/' itself.
Try absolute path?
./Route66/Start.map might also work, just guessing.

Did you manage to get this working without copying the maps? I also can not get the maps to load from inside the GRP.

Got it working!

Grpinfo needs to look like this:
grpinfo
{
    	name       "Suckin' Grits on Route 66"
    	scriptname "game66.con"
    	size       18211915
    	crc        -1467060190
	flags      GAMEFLAG_RR
    	dependency 433699961
}


"Size" and "crc" are from the custom-made route66.grp (which can be compiled from the GOG version according to this guide, but I think you don't have to rename the maps since user66.con already uses the right names) while the "dependency" value is the CRC of redneck.grp.


Could you please explain how to get the size and crc values?

How to get music working:
1) Create two zipfiles with the ogg tracks inside, named track02-track09.ogg (Redneck Rampage) and track02-track10.ogg (Rides Again). Rename file endings from .zip to .dat (e.g. redneck_music.dat and rides_music.dat).
2) [OPTIONAL] Put both .dat files into a subdir called "music".
3) Create two textfiles named redneck.def and rides.def. Redneck def should contain
loadgrp music/redneck_music.dat
and rides.def should contain
loadgrp music/rides_music.dat
. If you didn't put the files into the music subdir, omit the "music/" part.
4) Create another textfile named e.g. redneck.grpinfo with the following code (assuming you are using the GOG.com files, otherwise you need to adjust the size/crc/dependency lines): ...


This kind of works for me, but as soon as I have the RR:RA music in only plays music from that ZIP, even when I play vanilla RR. Any idea?

Once you have launched the groupfile at least once, there is a grpfiles.cache in your root directory. It reads like this:
"route66.grp" 18211915 1541406596 -1467060190
"rides.grp" 191798609 1227896520 -1786767162
"redneck.grp" 141174222 1227896404 433699961


The first value is the file size, the third is the CRC (you can ignore the second entry). All this is also explained in detail in section III of the Addon Compilation readme.

Regarding the music issue I have no idea what could be happening, though. A problem could be that the tracks in both .dat files share the same names, so it might be that one pack is overriding the other. This shouldn't be happening though since you specifically call one of the two dat files in the grpinfo. You can still try moving one of the files into a different folder and edit the grpinfo file accordingly. I seriously doubt it would make any difference, though.

Again, this is my redneck.grpinfo file:
grpinfo
{
    	name       "Redneck Rampage"
	defname    "redneck.def"
    	size       141174222
    	crc        433699961
	flags      GAMEFLAG_RR
    	dependency 0
}

grpinfo
{
    	name       "Redneck Rampage: Rides Again"
	defname    "rides.def"
    	size       191798609
    	crc        -1786767162
	flags      GAMEFLAG_RR
    	dependency 0
}

grpinfo
{
    	name       "Suckin' Grits on Route 66"
    	scriptname "game66.con"
	defname    "redneck.def"
    	size       18211915
    	crc        -1467060190
	flags      GAMEFLAG_RR
    	dependency 433699961
}


redneck.def:
loadgrp music/redneck_music.dat


rides.def:
loadgrp music/rides_music.dat

Alexey, about the sprite edges, you might want to take a look here and here.

I concluded that my previous method of pre-processing sprites before scaling up with ESRGAN is imprefect but I found a better solution which allows to get the results like this without using any masks:

Kudos to Phredreeke for the suggestion to add noise to image before processing.

I just thought I'd list how I've gone about installing it.
I can see from reading the thread there's other ways of doing it - I've kept the games separated.
I'll probably fork the repo, write a WIKI page and issue a pull request.
The process can probably be automated too!

I've got latest GOG installer (setup_redneck_rampage_2.0.0.11.exe)

I've extracted the data using innoextract:
innoextract -d output setup_redneck_rampage_2.0.0.11.exe --gog


GOG include the CDAudio on the BIN/CUE but rename the files.
I use bchunk to extract it in WAVE format:
bchunk -w REDNECK.gog REDNECK.inst track

Then I just convert the tracks to FLAC/VORBIS with SoundConverter although I'm using XFCE.

Overall directory structure is this:
tree --dirsfirst


Redneck -> https://pastebin.com/ukkHNpWG
Rides Again -> https://pastebin.com/XDssVwUt

Route66 needs the backslashes changed to forward slashes in USER66.CON
Rides Again just needs a quick renaming fix for two tiles
Rides Again also seems to have a video file which doesn't currently play

I can run Route66 by doing:
./rednukem GAME66.CON


Is there anything I'm missing there?

Well I tried some more and found that SelectedGRP ends up as "rides.grp" in rednukem.cfg and this causes the RRRA music to be played. If I replaced "rides.grp" with "redneck.grp" it works fine. Is there a way to chose this from the command line? What I currently do is run the executable with -g redneck or -g rides but this does not seem to change SelectedGRP.

How does it compare to M210's work? I don't use Java at all (even portable) so I am very excited.

Ad vocem Erampage. I have been working a bit on this project with my friend Jon. I have had a very hard time in my life back then and my options have been very limited. So I have decided to alter a bunch of levels for Erampage and I have done some quick code tweaks the "dirty way" - it was better than doing nothing in life. This was all we could do in a short time and taking into account that Jon and I are adult, nice guys who have their lives. Happy lives after all. Believe me - it would be very hard to find bigger Redneck psychofans than me or Jon, the site owner of Totally Redneck - and we were happy enough with the results. Back then it was the only way to play in high resolution.

Ok Jackie, now it's my turn...

I wrote a quick bash script for Linux that uses the latest GOG Windows installer to setup the game(s)

It sets up all the directories, copies all the game files (apart from the exe), rips the audio from the CD image (REDNECK.gog) and encodes with FLAC.
The two fixes for Route66 are handled as well (artwork + pathname fix)

It requires the user to have flac, bchunk and innosetup installed.
The user still has to install all the usual eduke32 build dependencies and run make to compile the code.

Suggestions are welcome:
https://gist.github....2b11dc7d1eec1d0

A bash script for Blood would be a bit trickier as GOG have stupidly stripped the Redbook CD Audio off the included image.
Only providing lossy vorbis files.
I had to grab a CD image from archive.org to get a lossless copy of the music:
https://archive.org/...e_Software_1997
They've done a few alterations to the track lengths as well.
