I think we could hand out duke in dc, see here its been up for 1332 days, with a disclaimer here that says

If you, are the copyright holder, or an employee of the copyright holder, and you do not want any of the titles available here to be distributed, then please contact us and we will remove the link immediately.

I really don't think there will be a problem, that site is #7 on google search for "duke it out in dc" so you don't need to go to great lengths to track it down either, as far as i know the only way to make money on it is to sell it second hand on amazon.

Whats the worse that could happen? they tell us to take it down and we do, oh noes god forbid it could help sell more gog copies ;)

I have every BUILD add-on ever made packaged and ready to go on Dukeworld. All Sunstorm add-ons have been declared abandonware in an email from Anthony Campiti, and I'm waiting on Joe Wilcox for a legit freeware release for NW and a release on Deadly Kiss for SW before everything goes live.

I can't either, but unfortunately he hasn't sent me anything yet, he hasn't been active on the Epic forums since May 18, and he hasn't responded to any emails or even a myspace message.

You should go live on Dukeworld with all the sunstorm addons anyway. Then just add the other 2 addons later.


Or Not.

It's the same logic as why the MOTHER 3 English translation team didn't release a WIP patch--few would see the final version, all the hype would be about imperfection and twice daily you would get emails from concerned noobs.

Of course, I know exactly what you're talking about. Especially since no one gives half a shit about NW anyway.

My packages are 7-Zip archives of the CD's root directory. I don't think that the add-on CDs warrant CD images.

I like NW, and NW Plus. True CD only needed to play it the old school way in dosbox.

You can mount a folder as a disc.

Mount a folder with the command cd <nameoffolder> in DB. The name of folder is limited to a certain number of letters, I don't remember exactly how many, but just name it dn3dnw for exemple.

Personaly, I've this:
[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup. (mount D I:\ -t cdrom)
keyb fr
mount C F:\Jeux_DOS\
C:

I've just to write cd blood then blood to launch the Blood game in the Jeux_DOS folder. DOS does not support spaces, I guess you know this :angry: This way let you have several games easily.

DOS allows a maximum of 8 characters in folder and filenames (not counting a 3 character extension).

Ok, I copied my Nwinter files to a folder and mounted it. Works fine in dosbox. Duke caribbean Installs ok in dosbox, but
I get a runtime error with Carib.exe under dosbox. The Nwinter startup screen was so cool back in the day.

It's a few seats back on my bus. You could help me by analyzing what each file extension is.

Correct me if I am wrong, but DukeZone1 is just a Dos Map Launcher.

Hey guys, i take it this is the thread that has ALL of the official duke 3d released that are compatible with the latest high res pack?

I really just want to buy everything...like all of it, but only if its compat with the high res mod, which- on that note, im trying to find a great high res sound mod to enhance the sound if thats been done? I couldnt see anything.

So do i go to GOG.com or something to buy all the expansions?

I wish i could track down the box release of ...i think it was atomic pack or plutonium pack that had a free t shirt and everything.

Can anyone direct me to an omni-download? Or is it literally just one at a time sort of thing...

Thanks guys, hope i havent trod my noob feet on too many toes here.

GOG.com only sold/sells Duke 3D Atomic, without any expansions.

There are no (good) high res sound mods, but there are great music mods.

For all the add-ons, you might as well wait until I release them all as freeware/abandonware within a few months. The only really legal (CS-teacher approved) method would be to scout around on eBay, etc.

If you have Atomic v1.5 you don't need it.

Duke Xtreme

Insert your Duke Xtreme CD, Kill-a-Ton Collection Disc 3, or Duke: The Apocalypse CD into your CD-ROM drive.
Copy the DKXTRM directory from the CD to your EDuke32 directory.
In DKXTRM/PACK14, rename DKEXGAME.CON to GAME.CON, DKEXDEFS.CON to DN3DDEFS.CON, and DKEXUSER.CON to DN3DUSER.CON.
Run EDuke32 with these command line parameters: "-j DKXTRM\PACK14 -j DKXTRM\SPMAPS -j DKXTRM\DMMAPS".


I have "The Apocalypse CD ",fortunately,I've be able to run dukezone2 with eduke32 but extreme run perfectly,but when I enter the episode menu,the original one from atomic edition appear,I try to include all pack14 folder to grp and run eduke32 with this command:
eduke32.exe -gExtreme.GRP
Any help ?

You need to include the -x parameter for the CON file. It may be "-xDKEXGAME.CON".
