I just got back from Duke4.net Forums and I have to say: Don't get this version of Duke3D.
I'll explain: The Expansions are fine and all but the game itself is kindof broken.
Basically: Stick to the GoG version for now until they fix these issues (Lets hope they fix that before the multiplayer comes in).
You could always buy it for the data files and just run it with eduke.exe. Then you get the game with all expansions and the best source port around.
Is it not just the same game run in dosbox? Or is it some strange winport?
It is a strange winport. Namely, Jonof's
. But it doesn't stop you from using eduke with it as I mention above.
Hmm, it also seems that the expansions are only for the OpenGL version?
No, they're the normal .grp and .con files which you can use in any Duke port .exe; either the native duke3d.exe or any
Personally, I just made a bunch of batch files and copied the Addons DIR and DUKE3D.GRP to my Eduke32 DIR and made a bunch of batch files. Like this :
Atomic Edition :
eduke32 /xaddons\nwinter.con /gaddons\nwinter.grp
I never use their shitty substandard port. There's absolutely no reason to.
