  1. In Topic: OK, how much do you *really* remember about Duke3D?

    14 July 2018 - 04:52 AM

    As I've hinted beforehand, I may allow myself to look at the game again from now on.

    A 20 question test mostly about Duke levels. Give your answer in spoilers, I give you an upvote if at least 16 is correct. :P


    While I've looked a bit at the game yesterday (mostly at E2L7), I still think it hasn't assisted enough with your questions, Nansci.
    So, trying just for fun (albeit without episode 5 again):

  2. In Topic: OK, how much do you *really* remember about Duke3D?

    13 July 2018 - 02:46 AM

    This is all great to see so far!

    For reference, I have my times of playing with Duke Nukem 3D and the data *a lot*, so obviously I remembered more back then. Sadly it looked like interests changed with the times, so... you get the idea.

    I'll add more contents from memory here, this time Duke quotes (at least as much as I bothered to recall until I decided I'm not interested to continue).
    Afterwards, I think I'll finish and, well, allow myself to actually search for anything like map names and more.

    Duke quotes:

    Wanted to respond to the above, but then I've been semi-beaten:

    What I can add on the above, though:

    Lemme add a few late addendums of mine:

    One more map:

    A few misc. (estimated) music file names (sorry, can't identify these with specific tracks, so can't match these with the maps):

  4. In Topic: Restoration of a few games' EXEs versions

    20 May 2018 - 12:10 PM

    Guess what? (Thanks to NukeYKT for the hint!)

    Turns out the "extras" directory from the Duke3D sources, as released by 3DR, includes the code for v1.5!
    I suppose that I've suspected this beforehand. It's just a bit weird this hasn't been confirmed until now. Then again, maybe this isn't very surprising.
    - The libraries' OBJ and LIB files are missing, and should be brought from the "source" directory of 3DR's sources (or from the EDuke sources).
    - BUILD.H is also missing. You shall copy the one from the EDuke sources, *not* from 3DR's Duke3D sources.
    - MAKEFILE is more-or-less the same as in the EDuke sources, while MAKEFILE.LNK is based on the one from my repository.

    As a side-note, there's a bit of concerning news regarding BUILD.H:
    When I attempt to use BUILD.H from 3DR's sources (rather than the EDuke sources),
    the output EXE's layout becomes somewhat different, even if not by much. Maybe certain global variables are positioned differently.
    The only real difference in BUILD.H code is the addition of "extern" declarations of unused variables ("validmode*" vars),
    as well as minor changes in comments (the addition of support for masked/translucent ceilings/floors via ceilingstat/floorstat bits).

    Any idea what those changes by Charlie Wiederhood could have been and why they where needed?


    It's probably the best to see the CTW comments in the code for yourself; In some cases, there's an explanation, but when there's not, chances are it's related to TEN.
    Also, without some of his changes, it wouldn't even be possible to build an EXE at all. There were also a few obstacles on the way (like some issue with CD Audio playback).

    Fortunately, one of the things I did receive from the 3DR archives were full backups of the hard drives from Jim Norwood and Frank Maddin's workstations.

    That's interesting! Are the sources of Bio Menace on it by any change? ;) (Just kidding). But on a serious note, it might provide some very good insight of some things, or even some missing part.


    I should probably note here that I've referred only to sources which were already made available to the public in various forms.
  5. In Topic: Is MultiQuote broken?

    I haven't noticed any issues wtih multiquote but I always press the Add Reply button after selecting everything I would like to quote.


    Looks like it's my mistake again!

    After using the "MultiQueue" buttons to select posts to quote, I shall click on "ADD REPLY", rather than "Use Full Editor". Problem solved, thanks!
    P.S. this is with Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu, 60.0.1 (64-bit).
