I'll assume that he was tired and forgot about bitbuckets login thing, but here https://www.dropbox...._1_0_1.zip?dl=0

Delete the save file though unless you don't want to start from the beginning I guess? Also the config.cfg

Hmm... One doesn't need an account with DropBox to download this file?

I have been wanting to find a solution for this sort of issue for years (again) and just haven't taken the time to do so. By the mid 90's I had a dedicated IP through load balanced triple modems with FTP to a Novell File Server with six 30 Gig Drives. I stored mass data (for the time) for all my friends. I also hosted my own web site so people would never have to suffer advertisements and I would be the only one with access to my site and could log, block, or seek and destroy anyone attempting to screw with my site. Can't have any of this on web hosted sites.
The point to this isn't "look how great my setup was" it is just when I see the technology and speeds of today and it seems hardly anyone does anything like this. If I am going to offer someone a file, you aren't going to suffer ads or any kind of login or other email mining operations etc.

One consideration was to setup a system that authenticated through say this sites keys/cookies so anyone that could log in here could upload/download to my system. I don't have the bandwidth here at home, but I doubt it would take much for most files here. I need to look at the legal aspects of that... but like I said, these things take time. Still there are others with just as much time (look at the huge effort people put into Duke Mods here for instance) who could do something like this.

Maybe there is such a setup and I don't know about it.

Anyway, rant is done... this is mostly about a concept that I detest that there are things "free" on the internet. There is VERY little free, and data storage/sharing is one that always comes with a price.

This just feels good, the mouse aiming, the slight banking/tilting when you turn, the movement, it all feels really tight. I haven't played the original to know a difference, but this just feels so good.

MrBlackCat, I don't think anyone does that anymore - or very few anyway. Amazingly, I think the general tech ability of the average netizen seems to have gone down.

Isps now make a big deal out of having your own static ip address. Some don't offer the service at all.

As some compensation, Dropbox and at least one of the other online storage sites offer the ability to host websites from your storage space.

Just finished it. When you got all the artifacts you definitely feel like a demigod, heh. This game is so much fun, I hope more people check it out.

As someone who has played the original all the way through, I can verify that this is extremely accurate to the original game. (Specifically, the PSX version.)

Judging by StrikerMan's post, I got to take a look.

Does this mean that it will be theoretically possible to create a Duke3D port once the engine is open sourced (in parallel to Lobotomy's Saturn port)? I know there probably is no real practical purpose to that but it seems interesting.

On a side note, what I really like about the SlaveDriver engine is how the screen tilts sideways when turning (there's a similar effect in Build when using the Ins and Del keys but not while turning). However it seems to be less noticeable in the remake compared to, say, Saturn Duke Nukem 3D is that because the tilt values are different between the two games, or just because of higher resolution?

I usually like Gggman's videos but I feel like he mainly made this video just to highlight that Powerslave EX exists as the video is sloppy and full of misinformation :)

Hes been pumping out a lot lately, and its funny how he liked Powerslave in the original review but touches on the irritating things about it in this video.
Then again, you can't really say much about this port itself besides its pretty damn crisp. Quicksave is my one single feature I want, but I know its only Alpha right now so its all good.

Your post could also be more informative. I don't know the guy and I played the game in the last millenium so I wonder what exactly it's not right with this review. Overall it seems pretty positive.

I guess in the modern video game market situation, it would make sense for the copyright holders to acquire the rights to the port and start selling this stuff?

Whatever the case, hopefully the engine will still be open sourced.

Update for anyone that cares.

AndromedaX: So… are you planning on modifying it so it doesnt come with any of the in game files ? I’ve got my old psx and pc cd so it wouldnt be a problem for me (I’d just have to track down a saturn cd too)

Kaiser: Probably. But I am not touching anything right now. Give it a few months and I’ll revisit this mess.

Thankfully I still have my copy of PowerSlave EX. Glad I downloaded it when I did.
