That's right, version 1.5 of Duke Nukem Forever Enhanced is now available, with two major highlights in this release.

First of all, after many trial and errors, the Duke Nukem model featured in Triptych's 2009 trailer has been succesfully restored, many thanks to Futuretime23 for swapping 2011 Duke with the 2009 model and Neo for making the textures, the real king is back into action.

Fixed "The Hive" chapter


That's not everything that this new update brings. As a way to show what can be achieved with the level editor and a showcase to what this project aims to do in the future with the levels, I've fixed the notoriously infamous "The Hive" chapter, the questionable jokes present in the level has been removed, the writing has been tweaked and new music has been added to make sure that the experience is now much better and similar to Duke Nukem 3D in tone, the level is now way more atmospheric.

The fixed hive is already available and you can download it right now.

More stuff to come next year


The project still has a long way to go, there's definitelly more stuff planned for the next year, what's present in the current update is just a taste on what's about to come for Duke Nukem Forever (2011) in 2023, mainly related to the levels and DLC compatibility, which about the DLC I'm currently facing a roadblock regarding loading the gameplay changes that I hope to adress, for the time being only the Vanilla Edition has DLC compatibility. I'm planning to do heavy changes to the game regarding the levels and story, fixing the issues that the game has since it's release and make DNF the way it was ment to be.

We've also done initial work on the nighttime Las Vegas, here are WIP screenshots of it.

I'm French and the mod is in English, even if French is chosen for the vanila game.
This is to have the subtitles in French

if you rename french file name to english file name and you set the game to english should work IIRC.. at least if you don't want keep duke voice in french but I don't hope so, in case there should be a similar workaround but never tried

That's okay, but stupid question, since there are 4 weapons, how do you make a quick change between them?

sorry I don't know even how to switch weapon, I indeed asked about that right here below

Normally these are keys 1 to 4, but there's no quick change for all weapons, as the game was designed for 2 weapons.

Just a few suggestion for me,
-It would be nice to have old multiplayer button back, or at least both options.
-Still in MP, Duke textures are messed up.
-Can single player jumping animation be fixed? at least replaced with multiplayer one which looks much less ugly really
-I can't switch weapons, could mouse wheel work?
-Would be nice if weapons can be picked up when passing over them, like DNF overhaul mod.
- I believe it won't be easy to add medikit around, at least ego regeneration on killed enemy could be a thing as I saw on discord!

Thanks for your work
