Hi,

In the wiki article it seems pretty straight forward https://wiki.eduke32...d_configuration

Quote

If you bought the game from Steam (as Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition) or GOG.com, copying the data yourself is not required. EDuke32 will use the Windows registry to automatically identify your installation and add the required data to its search path.


This never worked for me, so what Registry Entry is checked? I have to admit that my library isn't on C located due to space limits.....

In my steam library are:
DN3D - 20th Anniversary World Tour
DN3D - Megaton Edition
Shadow Warrior
Shadow Warrior Classic Redux

Would be nice if don't have to copy files from the STEAM directory anymore.....

Just extract the contents of your eduke32 archive into your DN3D or SW installation folder and you will be fine. Make a shortcut of the exe you are gonnna use (eduke32 or voidsw) and drop it on desktop or sumthing.

If you made the games show up as installed in your Steam client by adding a Library Folder with them present, but you didn't originally download them on that Windows installation or at that path, they won't be added to the registry. What I've done to fix this is to rename the installation folders to something else temporarily, uninstall the games from the Steam client, undo the rename, then reinstall the games at the same path to avoid redownloading anything. Then Steam should add the necessary registry entries.

Thx for the hint.. It's much easier without any deleting etc.

1) Open registry editor

2) Navigate to the following key entries

For Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition goto Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Uninstall\Steam App 225140

For Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour goto Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Uninstall\Steam App 434050

For Shadow Warrior Classic Redux goto Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Uninstall\Steam App 225160

For Shadow Warrior Classic (1997) Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Uninstall\Steam App 238070

3) Edit the entry "InstallLocation" to the matching path


The only "bug" I found was that once MEGATON edition is detected the WT edition will not show up in the selection... the same issue is with CLASSIC and REDUX

It would also be nice if the selection box would show the origin of the GRP files like "Duke Nukem 3D (STEAM - Megaton Edition)" .... just an idea
