Rigel Engine - Duke Nukem II engine recreation project

Here's what I just found posted by a user in an old gaming forum a couple days ago:

Yup, that's a project similar to ReDuke but for Duke Nukem II. The GitHub project page has some downloadable beta builds and source code. Currently, the shareware episode is supported (registered levels might work too but not for granted).

Also here's an article about the project:

I saw that on Twitter a little while ago and retweeted it. I for some reason thought it was already known here. Apparently not. My bad.

Among the future plans is support for replacement graphics assets. I went ahead and added a comment requesting features for supporting multiple music formats as well (with metadata loop tags) including MODs.

As I mentioned on the 3D Realms Discord server, this project looks cool, but mention of "analyzing video captures from DosBox" as part of the fundamental development strategy concerns me. It sounds like this is primarily a by-sight recreation and I'm not a fan of those. The mention of Episode 1 being playable and the rest not (yet) adds to my concern. It suggests an approach of recreating things as one goes along, rather than actually reproducing the game's systems.

Just to be fair, the full sentence is "A mix of reading assembly and analyzing video captures from DosBox", as NY00123 mentioned on Discord.

By-sight recreations often include some extent of direct REing, often just in terms of loading file formats, but don't apply the approach as widely as they should. Mentioning "reading assembly" does not counter my concerns.

So I recently rediscovered this on Twitter and didn't realise this had been posted on the forum before.

It looks like now that the Registered Version is supported and even interestingly supports Widescreen now

TBH I haven't gotten around to check this out myself yet, and completely forgot there were downloadable beta versions already. Thanks for the heads up!

Well, it would be nice if I could find a way to enable that widescreen mode. I downloaded latest released build (v0.5.3) from its Github page. But if I try to enter Game options in menu, it just goes crashing down immediately.
Maybe it is because I am using Win 7 64bit? I also got error at launching game for first time and had to provide vcruntime140_1.dll file for it to run.
