Topics I've Started
20 March 2017 - 12:13 AMHello!
I'm looking for the original, MS-DOS-based build editor for the original game.
The information is probably visible plain and open here and elsewhere, but personally, I couldn't find it to save my life.
Everybody just keeps telling "use Mapster/eDuke, it's better and runs on new Windows".
But what I want to do is creating a satirical game (Nazi Dinosaurs from outer Space) with a fictional history - pretending that the game orginated in the 1980ties or so - so there should be a "new" version with (halfways) modern graphics (Far Cry level), and at least one "old" version with 2.5D graphics, that runs on a 486 on DOS. Obviousely, the "modern" version I can't do all alone, but the "vintage" version, I probably can. Not saying I will do it anytime soon, I'm not in a hurry, probably will try to make some smaller an easier-to-do maps before. But the idea is to do "vintage" games that would actually run on vintage computers.
If it doesn't run on modern Windows (without emulator), that's all the better, it would add to the desired vintage flavour.
I know there was a DOS-based map editor, I owned it and used it years ago, but I can't find it anymore...
Or am I completely wrong, and I can use eDuke to create maps for the original engine?
Thanx and greetings
