    This is exactly why you didn't experience any performance problems. The older the version of Eduke32 the better the performance. The best combination for best overall performance is actually to use Windows XP with an old version of Eduke / Mapster it runs like silk. Newer versions of EDuke/Mapster must include more features which is why the performance goes down the drain. If you want a fast and optimized version of EDuke run an old release.
    Could resolution affect performance too? For me 640x480 is enough while using the classic renderer, because I think higher resolutions look better only if used with some other enhancements, like the HRP.

    But I totally agree with that. I use an old build of EDuke32 (r4525) on an old computer with Windows XP and never experienced any performance problems.

    By the way, I just downloaded this map to play it later. I see ck3D is also the author of Happy Hangover, a map that brings me back good memories from 2009. I'll see how good is this new map. :)

    If we want another Duke game, we will have to produce it by ourselves. Is "Duke Nukum" a copyrighted name? :D

    Montezuma's Return! especially doesn't like to be emulated. Its strange Voodoo2-requiring multitexturing technique with fake bumpmapping on their detail textures pisses emulators off, as well as newer Voodoo hardware.
    Excuse my ignorance, but what kind of emulators are you talking about? I was thinking about a virtual machine, but maybe there are better options. I'll also add that I always played the game with the VGA mode rather than 3Dfx.

    A first person game I have never heard of? Weird.
    It was made in 2001 by just one person, and it was distributed freely from his website. Here's a link to download it: https://www.dropbox....perabis.7z?dl=0


    By the way, I also would like to name Montezuma's Return, a game I enjoyed a lot as a kid:

    Hard to play it nowadays; in some computers it runs too fast, in others it doesn't work at all.

    Here's the video from where it's from, but it's hard to read the rest.
    Thanks to Big Box Retro Collector, the uploader, we can see now what LameDuke was going to be about:

    Spoiler

    Interesting plot. There's no mention to aliens yet, even though they were already present in game, along with pigcops. It would have been cool to see how the final game would look if it had followed this theme. I think it could have been a success despite being different from the final Duke 3D, mainly because all the innovations the Build Engine was offering at the time and also because levels/enemies/weapons were already pretty well designed. Or at least in my opinion. :D
