Duke Nukem, the politically incorrect celebrity and ultimate alien ass kicker, defends Earth and its babes from alien invasion. Take the fight to the aliens in Hollywood, Los Angeles, a moon base and alien spacecraft. Defeat the aliens, so Duke can get back to some R&R with a stogie, a warm belly and a bottle of Jack.

Post feature Report RSS How to get Mods/TC's/Addons working on Megaton Edition

Thanks to steam, Interceptor and Devolver Digital for finally bringing DN3D to steam with enhanced features (ironically at great reluctance on 3D Realms part). Heres how we get all them mods working.

You can download TCs/Mods/Addons whatever from websites listed here:

All files from the TCs or Addons should be placed in the gameroot folder.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Duke Nukem 3D\gameroot is the location of it for me.

If you downloaded the TC/Addon from the links, make sure it doesn't say something like "Requires eduke32" as it will not work with Megaton.

In the (zip) folder, there should be a bat file or something similar. WGSpace Episode for example has a .bat file that includes:

duke3d.exe -xWGGAME.CON -gWGS.GRP

Copy -xWGGAME.CON -gWGS.GRP and right click Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition in your library and then Properties. Choose Set Launch Options and then put in -xWGGAME.CON -gWGS.GRP.

Launch the game and it should launch the Mod. Make sure you try all the Duke episodes before complaining that it doesn't work. The episode names are currently hard coded in Megaton so you won't see any change there, same with difficulty levels but the level names should hopefully be different.

Mods that don't work with Megaton:
Duke Nukem 64 Mod
Duke Nukem Forever 2013
Duke Plus
WGRealms 2 (It's standalone anyway)
War of Attrition
...There are more that will be listed if found...
