Fatal Mode (Atomic) - A hardcore difficulty mod for Duke Nukem 3D - Atomic Edition

Current version: 1.0

*** About ***
Fatal Mode (Atomic) is a hardcore difficulty mod for Duke Nukem 3D - Atomic Edition, created by Oszkár Winkler. It adds many extra enemies to the original levels, making the game much more challenging but still not frustrating. Duke loses all his weapons and equipment at the end of each level, so feel free to use whatever you get on your current mission! The mod not only raises the enemy count but also gives more weapons, ammo and even secret places to find, so the gameplay remains fair. If you are a beginner Duke3D player, then Fatal Mode is probably not for you. The mod covers all 4 episodes and features great Duke Nukem covers and remixes from the following artists: Markie Music; DAR; Mike Norvak and Andrey Avkhimovich. The small rest of the music is from the HRP Music Pack and from the movie: Shutter Island. On the Nature of Daylight by Max Richter, remixed by BETKR.

*** Installation ***
Fatal Mode (Atomic) uses EDuke32, and arrives as a "preinstalled" ZIP file. Download the mod, then uncompress it to somewhere and copy the file called "Duke3D.GRP" from your legal, full version of Duke Nukem 3D - Atomic Edition into the main directory of the mod. So "Duke3D.GRP" must be in the same directory, where "eduke32.exe" is. When you first start the game via "eduke32.exe", you need to set your screen resolution in the popup menu. That's it, have a good time with the mod!

*** Notes ***
- Updating the mod's Eduke version is not recommended. This is the most stable version I could find in the Eduke download archive. Later editions seem to have some weird memory bug... at least on my side.
- Switching to Polymer rendering mode is not advised. It might cause frame drops and stuttering. Polymost rendering mode is your best choice.

*** Version History ***
1.0 - Initial version.

This is a terrific mod and I agree with enlightenedboo, this was needed. My only complaint are the pig-tanks and the pigcops themselves being underwater.It doesn't warrant much, since it only happens once or twice in all 4 episodes. I look forward to any future updates, if possible.

Awesome! The mod I always want to play; A mod that turns Duke Nukem 3D into a horde-shooter -- like Serious Sam, or DooM! Definitely roll out new versions, because this is the kind of mod that the Duke Nukem community always needed -- at least in my opinion.

I am trying to play this mod, however every time after copying the GRP file and launching the .bat I am getting an eduke error: Error Compiling CON files.

Can anybody help me? I am somewhat new to Duke Nukem Mods. Thanks.

Make sure that the "DUKE3D.GRP" file is the Atomic version of the game. You don't need a BAT file to launch the mod. Just run "Eduke32.exe" and hit START.

Playing the 1st episode with this mod and enjoying it so far. It's really something that DN3D needed. Do you plan to continue working on it?

I plan to expand the levels with additional extra locations and secrets. I also intend to correct bugs reported here in the comment section and via email. Honestly I'm working on another Duke mod right now, it's a full new episode for the game, so this mod will probably will be updated a little bit later.
Glad you like it so far! :)
