Someone asked on Github whether this can work with JFDuke3D. Is that even possible? I see there's a build from 2021 available (http://www.jonof.id.au/jfduke3d), but I have no idea about its technical capabilites. TBH I am surprised this even still exists and there are people actually using it.

Stuff I'm not sure JFDuke3D supports:
- Widescreen gfx in general
- tilefromtexture with xoff/yoff and ifcrc to selectively replace tiles from addons
- globalgameflags 1 (disables widescreen orientation bits for weapon sprites)
- tiles97-99.art to provide 1.3D redfont

If you want vanilla accuracy, you use Rednukem. If you want fancy modding features you use EDuke32. I don't know where that leaves JFDuke3D other than being the granddaddy of Duke source ports.

Anyway, I downloaded JFDuke3D and the widescreen fix. First I created an autoload folder that I put the zip file in. Resulting in nothing. Then I extracted the zip file to the same folder as jfduke3d, again nothing.

My expectation is that there's probably no way to make this work. I think not even tilefromtexture is supported.

In general, I'm wondering why anybody would willingly choose a clearly inferior, outdated port these days when there's at least four viable alternatives out there. I mean, JFDuke3D was the pioneer port which made the HRP possible and laid the foundation for EDuke32, but since many years, actually decades, it's little more than a historical artifact.

The other ports are also downstream from JFDuke3D, either directly (DukeGDX and Raze) or through EDuke32 (Rednukem), hence me calling it the grand daddy. But as I said Rednukem has superseded it as the "vanilla accurate" port

I wouldn’t waste an ounce of effort trying to accommodate JFDuke3D. It reached its final form a long time ago.

Well, if even the port author chimes in and states it's lost cause... :rolleyes:
