    Humour is a big part of Duke, even if it's just stupid pop/movie references. Without the humour, you just have the Doom Marine.

    It's not the eduke32 devs responsibility to maintain the popularity of the Duke franchise.

    Multiplayer is broken in mainline eduke32, so people use eduke32-oldmp instead. Just like people use Zandronum instead of GZDoom to play Doom in multiplayer.


    I don't think that is what was implied by previous comments. It's certainly not what I said.

    And you're kind of implying here that it's the fault of eduke32 devs that there is no doom-like MP available and that further ties to your first post with a quite disrespectful "who is responsible for this disaster".
    *snip*


    Not making this point to attack anyone, as I know that there are reasons why the MP isn't working in EDuke, but any responsibility for this must fall to the devs, as they are the devs of this port, thus are responsible for the state of different portions of it. Again, that isn't to attack anyone for it not working, but just to clarify that 'blame' can't really be put anywhere else.

    Having working MP would be amazing. I have tried the MP version and it works well enough to have fun with coop and deathmatch. To be popular, it really needs some kind of front-end for those who are a bit non-technical. For those who weren't around at the time, DM and Coop Duke were some of the most amazing experiences that you could have back in the day without removing your clothes.

    The main problem with the IP was the lack of games coming out over the years. DNF took literally forever to come out and when it did, there were no modding tools. With no new content available, the whole thing died a year or two after release. Since then, Gearbox have sat on the IP with their thumbs up their arse. Reading around the web, there is still a lot of good will and nostalgia about Duke Nukem 3D, even after all these years. The fact that nobody is trying to capitalise on this - one of the most beloved FPS character in gaming history - is fecking barking mad.

    During all the years that Duke has laid fallow, Doom, Sam and pretty much every other FPS character has had multiple outings, many with mod tools to keep the fan base kicking out new content, keeping the community alive, till the next instalment arrived. Every few years, you could be sure to walk past Game or Gamestop and there would be a new Doom, SS or other shooter game in the window. Ads appear on TV and in the gaming press, all of which keeps the IP fresh and alive in the hearts and minds of gamers and the public at large. Duke hasn't had any of this.

    For the IP to really come back, and to entice a new modding community, we need a new game on a modern engine with modding tools. I don't think that fixing Polymer and adding MP to EDuke is going to woo people from Polycount to modding for Duke again.
  5. In Topic: DNF 2001 Build Was Apparently Almost Complete

    08 November 2018 - 06:17 PM

    What we need, and what is probably not going to happen under Gearbox, is we get a new game.

    Forwards, not backwards.

    I really don't think that will happen though.

    im sure itll come out awesome if you do!
    your skills are amazing and you shouldnt let yourself get demotivated by people wanting a 1-1 copy.
    imo something doesnt have to be at all, as long as it looks goods and the changes you made make sense and make the item as a whole look even better then it originally did :D

    ... i also havent done this at all a couple times. few times i just threw away the original design and completely re-designed an item from scratch inspired by references from real-life equivalents of the items.
    and i too noticed people didnt reply as much to those items as to the 1-1copy items i did.

    yeah i get what you mean, about people wanting something that is 1-1 copy of original item. people dun seem to get very excited at all if someone makes something and it isnt 100% authentic, and they will nag quickly if someone makes something and it isnt exactly the same as the original.
    i personally dun mind it though if something isnt 100% exact copy, and with the items for drake-m...
