Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise - compatible?
Is it possible to install the "Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise" add-on/expansion pack, for use with this game (i.e. the Steam version)?

Should work fine, I've played it through Megaton before.

So how do I install it/where do I copy the files to?

I'm using the Ubuntu (Linux) version of Steam...

Of boy, I'm a Windows user.

I think my instructions here should still work http://steamcommunity.com/app/225140/discussions/0/540735426216392965/

Okay much to my surprise, expansion packs do (as some have indicated) work with Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition!

Here is how (step-by-step) to install and use the Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise expansion pack, for the Ubuntu (Linux) version of Steam step-by-step - my understanding is that the process is the same or very similar for Apple Mac OS and Microsoft Windows operating systems...

1. Download your expansion pack and if it is compressed, de-compress it.
1a. If you're picky about keeping things "neat" like me, you can re-name the de-compressed folder whatever you want... If you just want things running, skip this step.
2. In Steam, right-click Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (Steam-->Library-->Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition) and select "Properties".
3. Click "Local Files".
4. Click "Browse Local Files".
5. Open the "gameroot" folder.
6. Open the "addons" folder.
7. Cut-and-paste the de-compressed expansion pack folder (in this case, "Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise") into the "addons" folder.
8. In the "Properties" dialog box (if you don't have it open anymore, refer to step "2"), select "General".
9. Click "Set Launch Options".
10. Enter "-gpenthous.grp" (without the quotes).
11. Click "Okay", then "Close".
12. Restart Steam, and launch Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Episode 1 (this expansion pack does not work with the other games and expansion packs which are included).

To disable the Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise expansion pack and play Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition as per normal...
1. In Steam, right-click Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (Steam-->Library-->Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition) and select "Properties".
2. Click "Set Launch Options".
3. Delete "-gpenthous.grp" (so that the text field is blank).
4. Click "Okay", then "Close".
5. Restart Steam, and launch Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition.

To re-enable the Duke Nukem's Penthouse Paradise expansion pack and play Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition with this level...
1. In Steam, right-click Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (Steam-->Library-->Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition) and select "Properties".
2. Click "Set Launch Options".
3. Enter "-gpenthous.grp" (without the quotes).
4. Click "Okay", then "Close".
5. Restart Steam, and launch Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition.
