If anyone a problem due to their Duke folder being a mess, just make a new one. Create a new folder, and copy eduke32.exe and DUKE3D.GRP to that folder. Then place the new episode in that folder and run the .bat
Creating a new folder adds less than 50 MB to your hard drive. That's next to nothing, and you eliminate any possibility of confusion or file conflict
Yeah, and Im down to about 2 gb left on my hardrive.
(and losing more every day there is a damn update from Java, or microsoft, or adobe, etc.). I want to get a new computer, but it wouldnt have Xp...it would have Windows 7. Then I would face god knows how many conflicts, and not just with Eduke, but Dark Messiah, Bioshock, and Half Life 2 and Darkest Hour. It isnt something Im looking foward to, although I'm just putting off the enevitable. Every month or so I have to remove a a few HL2 maps, or even an enitre game to make room on my hardrive so it will run (minimum of 200mb free is needed).
Anyway, I used the grp viewer program and it worked like a pro
(Thanks Methy!) Now I have a bunch of seperate .MAP files. Instead of dropping them all in the Duke folder, I put them in a folder I named "Metro", and I can find the folder under "user maps", and then "directories". Map one wont automatically take me to map 2, however the metro directory comes up after the map is done, and the next map is right there.
So far I have to say these maps (I have played 2) are works of art. The classic "City of Sin" map is a cityscape benchmark...but these rival that map. In fact, these feel even more like the original classics, like Hollywood Holocaust and Red Light District. I'm glad I did the work to get these maps open...it sure is paying off right now!
