EDuke32 now supports Megaton GRPs and EXE
Good evening,

EDuke32 devs just added the support for Megaton GRPs and EXE file:
http://dukeworld.duke4.net/eduke32/synthesis/20130408-3655/?s=d&o=d&dir=eduke32/synthesis/20130408-3655

You can read the ChangeLog.txt to check for details :)

It will allow you to play with the HRP, Polymer etc with the content you acquired through the Megaton edition, if you did not own Duke before (legally).

Megaton, based on JFDuke, has an incomplete code support for the HRP, that's why I link this here. It is not meant to state one port or better than another (The thing I saw here since the launch day of Megaton...), they've both their plus and minus. And keep in mind that EDuke32 is being under dev for years unlike Megaton, so you can't really compare. These few words just in case :)

Thank you for reading,

Mateos

If you aren't a fan of the best version of Duke Nukem 3D ever made, that's your loss!

It's good that Eduke32 supports the Megaton edition on its own so no one would need to 'upgrade' overwriting their Megaton edition's files.

Also, the people that have played the "best version by 3d Realms" back in 1996 are old and mature enough to embrace the freedom of choice and don't preach. Why are you even here if you don't like the Megaton edition? I know I don't like the HRP but I don't tell people to stop using it at every turn.

That's great news. Thanks to EDuke32 devs.
PS: I guess I don't need to remind that it's not a place for holy wars and flame, so when you discussing the topic show respect to developers and each other.

Thanks for posting the news, Mateos, and thanks TermiT too.

I'll reiterate what I've said in the past[forums.duke4.net]: In spite of any criticisms of the port, the Megaton Edition is an excellent package for $10, and I thank General Arcade for producing it. Statistics say that thousands of players are enjoying the Megaton Edition.

If the EDuke32 team works to integrate the Megaton Edition as smoothly as possible, everyone wins.

EDuke32 not so good at multiplayer, we tried, but that porl just diht cut out for this.

Termit, a product or brand or defined type by default is a territorial matter, how you guys confuse it with religious stuff or conflict being an inherently bad thing, thats your problem to sort out.

Otherwise.

We bought into a product, paid real money, with expectations and we expect the full return on our investment. That means no vulchers picking off innocent bystandards who would normally be part of the flock here. That means our known desires are under the protection of the company who has sold it to us. If people want open, secular, choice, they will buy the GRP from 3d realm's site and run it with the open source alternatives, like eduke without stopping by here.

This is a community about The Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton edition on steam with steamworks as a possibility and steamplay as a promise, nothing else. If you eduke guys are jealous and wanted to be part of the higher process here you should of helped out with Jonof's Port and not made your own after seeing he was the first one to do it either that, or applied to work with these guys.

We expect this product is officially endorsed with the blessings of 3d-realms or whoever holds the rights to the duke 3d IP, can you say the same about eduke?

PS: I hear your multiplayer sucks.

Cant be agreed more

I really wish you guys would stop trying to pick fights with the eduke32 devs. This port actually uses some of eduke32's code so I wouldn't even start saying that they have done nothing.
#Notorious Apr 9, 2013 @ 6:27am 
sadly but both ports have big minus - no support for 'modern' multiplayer which means dedicated servers :(
TX [EDuke32] Apr 9, 2013 @ 7:30am 
I actually worked more on JFDuke3D personally (before I turned it into EDuke32) than General Arcade did to turn it into the Megaton Edition binary. JonoF (the primary author of JFDuke3D, obviously) then went on to help the EDuke32 project quite a bit, contributing numerous patches, an upgraded sound system, additional features programmed specifically for EDuke32, etc.

To insinuate that we (the EDuke32 developers) would be jealous of a modified, older version of our own software is pretty hilarious, especially when we're going to make money on it. In fact, I think it's safe to say we want to see as many copies of Megaton sold as possible, because we're the ones who loved Duke3D enough to work on it for 10 years. We don't really care that the old version isn't as good or isn't as advanced as what we came up with later... when all you're running are the old original maps and expansion packs from 1996-1997, it doesn't have to be. :)

awesome!

If this is the awesome pack that gives me 3D models, I need to know how to install it. Can't figure it out. I got the zip with all the content in it, then what? I ran it by its self and it just started a Duke Nukem that looks like Megaton edition, nothing changed for me. Help would be very welcomed.
>M@tEo$< Apr 9, 2013 @ 9:51am 
Thanks for the heads up guys!

@Johnny Check if you have 3D Models enabled in Video settings :)

I think I read before in Duke4 that you can do some tricks to have it running in OS X, is THAT complicated? Someone has tried EDuke32 in Mac?
Johnny!! Apr 9, 2013 @ 10:11am 
I have 3D models enabled, just nothing seems to change. I know I am doing it wrong, just need some help. http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/408/23223098.jpg That's the setup I am using... Just a straight up eduke folder, with the contents of the zip in it. lol Do I need to place that anywhere, or run it from the folder?
