Alien Armageddon is a mod for Duke Nukem 3D which adds many new high quality enemies, sexy NPCs, and a second playable character, all featured in an epic new adventure. Some of the community's best talent have come together to make this amazing free expansion.
Alien Armageddon version 1.02 Fixes many bugs and includes a few balance and other changes. See below for details.
ALIEN ARMAGEDDON 1.02
Released August 31st 2018
Alien Armageddon is a huge add-on that overhauls Duke Nukem 3D. It runs on the EDuke32 platform. Main credits can be seen on the Credits screen in the main menu. There is also a Credits doc included.
Run EDuke32.exe to start game
You must have a copy of Duke Nukem 3D installed on your computer. For best results, place a copy of the file 'DUKE3D.GRP' inside of the alien_armageddon folder.
As with any mouse and keyboard shooter, you should configure the mouse and keyboard to your liking. Alien Armageddon uses two functions different from regular Duke 3D: SWAP CHARACTERS and SECONDARY FIRE. You should assign each of those to suitable keys or buttons from the setup menu before starting a game. SWAP CHARACTERS will switch control of the playable character, if the other character is available. SECONDARY FIRE will activate the alternative mode of the weapon currently selected, if the weapon has a secondary mode.
If you own Duke Nukem 3D but you get an error message that "DUKE3D.GRP" cannot be found, or something similar, then you need to find the file "DUKE3D.GRP" and place a copy of it within the DukeForces folder where Eduke32.exe resides.
