Duke Nukem 3D Source Code Released

Like we don't have enough spam around anyway, now Outwar goes and encourages people to put up false/misleading links all over the place. And no, I didn't follow the link.About time Duke3D was open sourced. It doesn't run on XP, so this'll allow it to live on.

Hey guys, Someone of the anonymous people here said Duke3d doesn't work on XP, wee not normally, but if you get the mod called Borg3d, with just a few new textures, and a patch from their website, duke works fine, and build does and everything!! Just thought i'd say, if it happens to interet anyone.

Bad new guys. Gl in duke has been tried before but the results have always been poor. I have tried it myself so I know how bad it sux. As for anyone picking this up it will be a long time and by then there likely will be a dn4 if it ever gets released.

Ok the XP situation, yeah it doesn't run and setting the compatibility back to old OS's doesn't work, its a good game its true but........that borg3d game is utter pants, seriously advertising it is worth you being castrated!peace be with your testicles ;)J

Duke was the best "back then" Better than Quake and easier to build for. But the biggest unanswred question is..... "WHERE IS DuKE NUKEM FOREVER?" They switched from Quake2 to the Unreal Engine years ago... where is the game? If they are not going to finish it, release the source code for what HAS been done and let us, the loyal fans, finish the job. I call shot gun on the 3D modelling of levels ;)[url removed]

Duke Nukem 3D Source Code Released

I agree in part Dirk. A game so long posponed "should" be out of date in terms of graphics by the time it is released, but the Original DUke 3D WAS out of date in terms of technology. Quake was FULL 3D, with no use of sprites to be seen. Yet Duke 3D had story, humour, action, player/environment interaction and most of all game play. So long as the same is true of Duke Nukem FOrever, it will still be a great game.... IF it ever comes out. And I guess they should be able to port data from Unreal Engine to the new Unreal Warfare engine (or whatever it's called) that is used in UT2K3 and Unreal2. Think im going to jump to 3D Realms site in a sec and email them to find out the score. I'll let you know if they reply to me.CHR15T05[url removed]

Sorry guys.I did post a link to the relevent page on 3DRealms site but it seems that Admin has found cause to remove it (?)Duke Forever IS still in production and according to the 3DRealms FAQ's there is good reason for the delay and keeping up to date with current graphic technology so that the game will NOT be "out of date" on release is one of them.There is no release date yet.(Is that ok Admin? Please let me know what was wrong with my last post :( )

Is there any GL based port for Duke Nukem 3D that DOES work????By the way, don't you think that the people at 3DRealms are just waiting for Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 to be released and then they will kick their asses with Duke Nukem Forever???...who knows, could happen...Greetings from Colombia-South-America
