Duke Theft Auto is based upon the classic DMA/Rockstar game, "Grand Theft Auto" Run, Shoot, Kill, Car Jack your way through many cities on your way of becoming the number one criminal! Instead of being limited to a top down view as you were in the classic game you will now be able to run and drive through the cities in a first person perspective as well as a third person.
To celebrate one year in production I am proud to release to you guys the beta version of Duke Theft Auto that was only given to a handful of selected people when it came out about 5 months ago. Now is your chance to try Duke Theft Auto for yourself.

To celebrate one year in production I am proud to release to you guys the beta version 0.80 of Duke Theft Auto that was only given to a handful of selected people when it came out about 5 months ago. Now is your chance to try Duke Theft Auto for yourself.
This beta is completely standalone and does not require Duke Nukem to play it.
Things that should be noted are:
* There is only one map that can be played on correctly.
* There is only two missions in that map which can bug out sometimes.
* Police cars tend to drive fast and clip through other cars.
* Driving physics are next to none. :(
You need OpenAL installed also or else you will have no music and missing sound effects, if you are unsure what OpenAL is or if you don't know if you have it installed follow this link.
People who are using Intel video cards will most likely be unable to play this as Eduke32 black lists Intel cards due to poor OpenGL support. There is not much that I can do about this I am afraid. (Buy a Nvidia or ATI card)
Multiplayer mode is very buggy and will most likely chrash or go out of sync.

A: Duke Theft Auto needs to be run in 32bit Polymost mode. It will not run in 8bit/software mode.

A: You don't have OpenAL installed which is required to play certain sound files correctly.
