Hi, brand new GOG member here. Not even sure what GOG stands for but anyway... It seems like a great community, lots of great games here!

Just downloaded Duke Nukem 3d, a bunch of my friends downloaded it for various operating systems and we're all wondering... Is it possible to get a network game going? Using it on my mac is fairly straightforward, and hosting a network game seems simple. The problem is my friends using windows can't find the equivalent menu options on their Duke Nukem 3d GUI. Where are these options and how could they access them?

I was trying to get it to work for you until I realized it couldn't be easier!
Simply click the Launch Multiplayer icon in the Duke Nukem folder and you will be able to play a network game. :)
I hope that works!
Sadly this did not work.

We tried to connect directly to a friend's external ip address, and then to mine, and then to another friend's, but it never worked.

One of use would select "host network game" and the rest of use selected "join network game" and entered the appropriate external ip address but to no avail. No connection was made and no game was initiated. :(
I'm having the same problems, anyone know how to fix this? Also, modem options lol
If you go to your duke Nukem folder start the settings.exe there are modem options in there.

Yes sir indeed you can play multiplayer. Online with many other Dukers in fact! You just need Dukematcher (free program) which allows you to network Duke3D with other online dukers. There are quite a few who play, and we also have a Facebook group going which you should join. Players use this to organise Duke Matches. Come get some! http://www.dukematches.net

If u want to play Duke 3D online so simply u must have duke3d.grp {1.5 atomic edition} and do those things:

1. download program Dukematcher from www.dukematches.net and install
2. download from www.dukematches.net Hduke port and unpack it
3. in your duke3d folder put hduke.exe and another hdukes files
3. create in your duke3d folder maps folder called "maps"
4. set properly paths in dukematchers settings
5. play

If u want to host u need forward port 23513 and 8501


See u,

Ha ha, GOG originally stood for "Good Old Games" before they started offering new indie titles. IMO it's a shame the meaning is no more b/c that was a brilliant acronym with a meaning, but oh well...
If you want multiplayer without downloading another app the following worked for me on Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

This is only required for the machine hosting the network game.

1. run the game as root (this is so it can create the IPX tunnel and bind a local port)
*****WARNING******
running an app as root is dangerous especially when you expose the application to the internet.
*****WARNING******
a. Open up terminal (cmd+spacebar search terminal in spotlight)
b. sudo /Applications/Duke\ Nukem\ 3D.app/Contents/MacOS/Boxer\ Standalone
2. Disable OSX Firewall (Alternatively figure out how to just allow UDP port 2130)
3. Allow UDP port 2130 through your internet firewall to your NAT'd local machine.

No need to change port and just have your friends point to your external IP.
