Nuclar Showdown v2.1 Released!

NS21 1


Nuclear Showdown v2.1 is released - this version fixes a few issues brought up and also adds a bunch of new content; widescreen artwork for the default weapons, new art for the Desert Eagle, and TONS of new Duke quotes (many of which are context sensitive) Also new is additive rendering for certain effects; the Shrinker Crystal now really glows in the dark (but not in full light) Another new addition is additional artwork for the babes Duke needs to rescue; no longer a army of complete clones, make sure to rescue them whenever you see them.

Using quotes from the PSX versions of Duke (only quotes used from around the DN3D era are used since his DNF voice is very different to his Duke3D version) Duke will now comment on a lot more things. There's still some things to be tweaked and worked on, but check out the following videos to get an impression of what's in store. A few quotes are also used in the Duke it out in DC episode.

To install, download Eduke32's latest snapshot from here, unzip into your Duke3D directory than download Nuclear Showdown and unzip into the same directory; than simply run Nuclear Showdown.bat to play. If you have a 64bit system, make sure to grab the 64bit copy of Eduke32 instead as it has some performance improvements.
