Duke Nukem thread. Mostly Douk 3D, but other Douks are welcome too.

I managed to arrange it so that I can launch eDuke32 via steam Duke Nukem: Megaton edition and now I can play all the mods. I installed Duke Hard, the Die Hard mod for Duke Nukem 3D and so far it has been pretty sweet, though I kinda wish it was a total conversion and went all the way Die Hard with movie sound effects and everything.

Are there any good total conversion mods? Something that would give a brand new twist to good ol' Douk? I'm kinda tired of playing the same old levels over and over again, I've been playing Douk for over 20 years now.

Oh shit. I remember seeing that ad and getting crazy excited. I grew up on the original Duke Nukem side scrollers by apogee, so seeing an ad for a new douk had me excited as fuck.

It's a real shame that pretty much every douk game since the first two sucked shit though. douk 3D had its moments, but overall with the other FPS games of its time, it was unimpressive.

same year, Quake was relaxed. It's really kinda hard to compete with that.

Duke Hard isn't really based on Die Hard.
It's just a cool pun of a name we found because the episode takes place in one building, and DN3D is all about movie references and such.
Hope you're enjoying it though.

>Are there any good total conversion mods?

Try WGRealms 2 and AMC TC. They're standalone games.

Also play the mod name "Duke Nukem Forever 2013".

>> No.2726192

Gearbox just throw out what was done and possible, which would have been ok as a well, spinoff game like manhatten project. But way too few stuff for full price/duke.
Let's hope they are at least working on something epic behind doors..
But don't know if it will still have the same charme, since most original people will not work on it and so on.

BUILD is the easiest engine in the world to learn how to map for. Go download a copy of Mapster32. It needs the Duke3d.grp file from the game to run.

What do you mean? IIRC it's supposed to overwrite that Lunar Apocalypse episode so that when you start a new game and choose the episode, it will show Duke it out in D.C. instead of Lunar Apocalypse.

Download EDuke32, which includes Mapster32 which is the enhanced BUILD >>2729668 is talking about. A good starting point to learn about this engine can be here: http://infosuite.duke4.net/

For TCs you should look up into GRP files and figure out how they work, since you can easily overwrite the data inside them by placing it in the same directory, or if you want you could make your own GRP.

I deal with ART files (graphics) using bastART


Which needs the palette file from your Douk's GRP so you have to look for something to open it (I don't even know what works good anymore).

For CON files modding (game logic) you'll have to just look at them with a text editor and grab all the info you can, it's pretty self-explanatory to be honest. There are some programs which let you open CON files and help you a little with syntax, trees, color coding and what not.

A neutered, internet meme spouting, politically correct piece of turd. I guarantee you that any "babe" they included would quickly turn into a powerful womyn to combat dem stereotypes. And Duke would inevitably shout that his powerlevel is over 9000.


Yeah, they took too long and now they can't... that is, if they ever truly intended to release them in the first place and it wasn't just some small-scale publicity stunt that they wanted to drag out forever.

I remember feminism in the 90's. It was nothing like today.

If they're sensible, they will keep Duke as Duke, but will also acknowledge how touchy feely PC everything must be nowadays and how "outdated" macho men like Duke Nukem are. They could make Duke this old scruffy man who's a relic from the old days, and he's the only one who can save the world from alien threat.

Duke would be reimagined kinda as Revolver Ocelot meets John Matrix; scruffy, foul mouthed, long haired old man who's still in excellent physical shape. He's also a huge perv and he doesn't give a fuck what people think about him.

He would look something like picture related.

I think anything less than Duke spitting in the face of PC BS wouldn't be a proper Duke sequel. I could see something along the lines of a proper woman trying to educate Duke in the "modern ways" of politically correct masculinity, but having the whole thing ending with her stripping and some "shake it baby"'s.

Duke 3D was meant to be hardcore and over-the-top, and it is no more out-of-date today than it was 20 years ago. Just some of the people who played the game years ago (or never did and were just aware of it) drank the SJ Kool-Aid and started to feel ashamed for having enjoyed it, so they blame the character for being outdated.

I honestly think Duke should just be left dead, not because he the franchise is too old-fashioned, but because I doubt a developer today would want to give it the sequel it deserves without shoehorning their own moralistic bullshit into the story.

>> No.2731031

I think Duke is outdated as a stereotype of the 80's and 90's action star that pretty much doesn't exist today.

>> No.2731175

The classic action film formula is pretty dead nowadays anyway. You get some things that come very close to it, but they always flop at the box office, like Dredd.

>> No.2731572

They only had the rights to DNF and to "any new Duke Nukem game", they didn't have the rights to previous games. Now they have everything.

The Expendables series worked well, and it's pretty much everything described by >>2730843

>> No.2731590

And I mean, in the Expendables movies there were some of the actors which reputations these days was completely ruined by their recent actions. For instance, Van Damme. Van Damme's state was comparable with Duke Nukem at the time, a has been 90's action heroes mocked up for his recent stuff; but Van Damme was fantastic in Expendable, used to his potential and not mocked on at all.

Now the difference is, Van Damme has himself, his agent, to defend himself. To make sure the role he plays in the movie is good for him.
Duke Nukem has nothing anymore, his daddies are all out of the loop now, so anyone can do whatever he wants with him. It all depends who's the devs and publishers who make the new game, but since it's Gearbox holding the reins, I have little faith.

The last "real" action movie like that I saw was Dredd, and it kicked ass. Too bad it didn't sell all that well so there is not going to be more.
