I'd say it's technically possible, if you don't have a problem fiddling with files, command line arguments and co.
The basic idea:
- For "Duke It Out In DC" you want dukedc.grp (from gameroot/addons/dc). Oh, and also temporarily move out existing CON files (GAME.CON, DEFS.CON, USER.CON) from a copy of duke3d run in dosbox (so they don't conflict with DC's).
- "Duke Nuclear Winter": nwinter.grp, nwinter.con, nwdefs.con, nwactor.con. No need to temporarily move the existing CONs these time.
- "Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach": vacation.grp. CON files should be moved.

There are also some .MAP files which you can find along with the GRPs, although for an experience more similar to what you'd get on a real DOS machine with older copies of the add-ons, these should not be used. (Some of them may be mandatory for certain multiplayer games, although not fully tested by me.)

This comes with addons and maps. The first time you run it will copy the duke
dosbox version files over to the folder you unzip it to.

How do I make DUKE3D.EXE use the grp files?

steam.exe -applaunch 225140 /gGOW.GRP /xGOW.CON /V1 /L1

Duke3d.exe /gGOW.GRP /xGOW.CON /V1 /L1


Use /V2 /L1 if addon starts in episode 2
Use /V3 /L1 if addon starts in episode 3
Use /V4 /L1 if addon starts in episode 4
