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.


Half-Life 2 Test Map Half-Life 2 Test Map Duke Theft Auto Random Picture

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.

Readme follows:

V0.80 BETA

You need to go to the Eduke32.com website and compile the source code IIRC.

Not yet as Polymer has not been publicly released. But once it is you will be able to update the beta so it can use it.
