I started modding in 2006 after discovering EDuke32, a source port of Duke Nukem 3D. I specialize in coding, and have used EDuke32 scripting to make several mods and TCs, with the help of some talented level designers from the Duke 3D community. My most notable projects include Duke Nukem: Weapon of Mass Destruction (my first mod), Duke Plus (a big enhancement mod), and a project formerly known as "Mario Nukem" -- an unreleased TC which provides a first person take on Nintendo's popular franchise.

DeeperThought @ Duke Nukem: Attrition

Sort of. It will run but a lot of the graphics will be missing or messed up.

I have never encountered this problem before or heard about it. After attempting to save, would you mind posting a copy of eduke32.log in the bug reports forum? That file is generated each time you run the game. My only theory right now is that it thinks you are out of disk space. Please mention your hardware specs, including hard drive, when you post the report. I know it's a hassle but it could be very helpful.

How is that? It lets everyone else save. You should be able to press Esc and access the menu to save at any time. You can also press F6 for a quick save.

The main problem is that Duke Forces uses the same tile numbers as those expansions for some of its enemies; moving them to other tile numbers is enough work that I'm not motivated to do it. Duke in DC would mostly work ok, but you would see some glitches such as enemy sprites appearing as wall textures.

It depends on what you mean by "expansion". It works ok with the original episode 4 levels and other user made maps, as long as they don't contain new art. It will not work with expansions that have new art or code.

Thanks for the kind words. Don't forget to take a look at the credits screen -- this project wouldn't be possible without the work of a lot people.

As for the white texture, I'm pretty sure that is the glow-map bug, not a missing texture. It is fixed in the latest version of eduke32: Dukeworld.duke4.net

DeeperThought @ AT-PT

There will most definitely be a drivable AT-PT. The challenge will be having levels designed for it.

It's 11, but some of them are long levels.

Sounds like a good way for the project to get a cease and desist order. But don't worry, I do have big plans, and there will be some more models!

Weird. Would you mind posting a screenshot? For one thing, I want to be sure that it really is missing textures and not some other kind of glitch.

Would you mind posting the contents of the eduke32.log file after a crash, over in the bug report forum? So far you are the only player who has reported crashes, and I would like to know what is going on.

It sounds like your Duke Nukem 3D game data may be from the original version. For this, you need the Atomic Edition which included the fourth episode. Megaaton Edition on steam (no longer on sale) works too. Duke Forces will still run but there will be missing textures in some levels.

I don't know what is triggering Edge, but the download is safe. It does contain EDuke32.exe which is for running Duke Forces.

Thanks for the generous review. Very observant of you to notice the underwater enemies with sprites from Strife. There are also the big fish things which are from from Episode 1 (Opee Sea Killers).

Thanks, I did release a patch to fix a few small bugs. If you know of more, or have ideas for improvements, post in the forum -- I do plan on updating as long as I can continue it.

It sounds like the game data from Duke Nukem 3D is missing or corrupt. Hard to say without more information. I made a little forum here where you can post about it -- include text from the eduke32.log file that is generated every time you run the game.

I hope you like it. EDuke32 has still got lots of life left in it; in fact, a new and improved renderer is being built for it right now. How are your projects going these days? I still remember that Black Shadow game you were working on, which was pretty damned cool.

Yeah too bad it can't be on steam. Also my reply above was partially inaccurate: Gearbox did put a stop to new sales of the Megaton Edition but it wasn't due to the dispute (although there certainly is one).

Thanks for your support. Duke Forces is powered by EDuke32 -- an extremely versatile, enhanced port of Duke Nukem 3D. Without EDuke32, neither Duke Forces nor any of my other mods (and countless other great mods by other authors) would exist. If you would like to support EDuke32 and its main developer, Richard Gobeille, check out the Eduke32 website and consider making a donation to support its continued development. The Megaton Edition uses some of Gobeille's code, by the way, which is why he received some royalties from it, until Gearbox shut that down over a dispute about a future EDuke32 project.

Yes, it should work fine. EDuke32.exe should find your steam install and use the Duke 3D game data from it.

The Build manual sucks, there is a much better and easier use guide than that.

Well, if you want to give it another try, I recommend making an account at duke4.net forums. Lots of experienced level builders there would can give you help and point you towards good documentation.

Even if you only wanted to build level geometry, that could come in handy for Duke 3D related projects.

Good to hear! Don't forget to report bugs in the forum -- some have been found and I will be releasing an update soon with fixes.

First you have to unlock them. Beating episode 3 unlocks force pull, and beating episode 4 unlocks force choke. When you start a new game after unlocking the power, hold down the action/use key (same key that opens doors) to pull objects or choke enemies. Some objects can't be pulled and some enemies can't be choked.

In that case you shouldn't have to find or copy the DUKE3D.GRP file. EDuke32.exe should be able to find it and use it. If you need to find it, I would just do a windows file search for it...

What version of Duke 3D do you have and where did you get it?

That's intentional. This is explained if you look at the backstory. If and when story mode is released, then it will be more clear.
