Has anybody got Duke Nukem mobile 3d to work yet?
It's a strange duke game and i like strange stuff. So i wanted to try it out, but it doesn't seem like j2me emulators at all.

Take this you rapscallion!

The original game was released for the Tapwave Zodiac, which ran PalmOS. There was a later port to feature phones but from what I can tell it used BREW (which compiled the game into native code, not running in a virtual machine like J2ME)

From 3D Realms old website, it looks like the mobile port received upgraded graphics though http://legacy.3dreal...le3d/index.html

Interesting, did you by chance watch LGR's Tapwave Zodiac review just posted today? he goes over Duke 3d Mobile (12:40).

From the looks of it, it's a pretty shitty Duke game

I'd like to play it too, even if it seems pretty bad. It's a piece of Duke history, after all, and it can't have been as bad as the 2D mobile game.

Duke mobile 3d originally released on the zodiac. But later around 2004/5 it was released for j2me mobile phones. It was also later re-released as duke nukem arena which added 3d models. But i have yet to have found a jar for that one.

I really don't get why the game wouldn't work on j2me emulators. I've gotten plenty of 3d games to work on them. Hell i even got the 2D Duke Nukem mobile games to work.

Because the mobile port isn't running on J2ME, it's using BREW...

There's also Duke nukem Arena for mobile phones. It's a re-release of the previous duke nukem mobile 3d with 3d models.

Ok, let's take Duke Nukem Mobile 3D to begin with. Going on 3D Realm's old website, we can find what phones it was sold for. If we google the phones, we'll find that they're using BREW.
Now, Duke Nukem Arena is trickier, as there is no mention of it on 3D Realm's site. However, if we google the game's name and Verizon we can find this newspost about the game. Once again, if we look up the supported phones we discover that they're using BREW. I haven't been able to find any signs of the game coming out on other carriers but obviously that doesn't disprove that it did.

A J2ME emulator can't run BREW games for the same reason you can't run SNES games in a Playstation emulator. They're two different formats. There could have been a J2ME version, but I can't find any concrete signs that was the case.

I mean, it's novel, but I don't really see the point of playing this one. It's honestly very DULL above all else...

Was. Nobody has the files anymore, I'm pretty sure, what with having looked for many years.

Interesting... have you tried opening the file as an archive (using 7Zip or WinRAR) to see what assets are in it?

Thanks for reminding me! Yup i have now. I've found most of the textures and sprites. they are highly pixelated to compensate for the lower quality tech.

I've posted a sprite sheet for the lizard troop. The original file was a bmp. I also posted a zip with the extracted assets and the jar on the duke4 discord.

For some reason the files for the lizard troops are named "Cat_01" and "Cat_02" Hmmm.

The original game on Tapwave Zodiac is a rather simple game with short corridor maps. I have that game in my collection and played it a while ago, but never finished it.

I was going to get a Zodiac but after looking at the prices and considering you can only really get them in the US ehh.

to be honest, it's only really interesting cause we can't play it.

Would be interesting if someone could dump the assets from the Zodiac version though, from LGR's video they look to be of a much higher resolution than those of the mobile version.

Nah. It's at the same res of the pc version. It's probably the screen and the camara that makes it look higher.

Thanks, looks to me like they're just the original game's assets upscaled to fit in a tile that's a power of 2. Then there's this...

I mainly want to try and run the j2me version because It's a very strange port. It also seems to run on a different engine then the zodiac version.

Ok so i've sorta gotten it to work. The game loads up but the world is missing. It's all just black although you are able to fire the weapon that you start with and you get shot by invisible enemies but that's about it so far.

Hello.

I have had a few versions of this game and I have the one which works. I run this game on Nokia 808 phone which is Symbian Belle based. The smartphone version has a few levels less than a Zodiac version (no graveyard levels, no graveyard boss) and it has really, really low resolution. Compared to the Doom 2 RPG the game looks like a trash, while on the Zodiac it looked really neat. The green turret enemy is also missing from the smartphone version. One day I might release a playthrough video on Youtube.

Cheers

Ok Jackie, now it's my turn...
