Fuck off yes you can change them....
I'm having problems configuring the controls too. When I go to setup and make the controls the WSAD with mouse, it doesn't work when I launch the game. Any help would be appreciated.

It's simple see all you have to do is press the start button find the gog.com or whatever folder the shortcuts for Duke Nukem 3D are found click set up go to controls and choose the controls you would like then press escape then press escape then press escape and choose the option to save them.
Tried that, saved and all. When I start the game it uses default controls. I'll figure it out eventually I guess, but thatnks for the reply.
Hmmm don't know what it might be because I did it yesterday
manually edit the duke3d.cfg file to the controls you want, then change the duke3d.cfg file properties to "read only"
For me i cant. Dosnt let me go into the SETUP folder. Says Windows isn't compatible with the application
setup.exe is supposed to be run in dosbox, not native windows.

i don't have the gog version, i bought my Duke CD a long, long time ago and I use eduke32. I mention this so my next statement doesn't seem as stupid as usuall.

Isn't there a dosbox shortcut created to run the setup.exe, and not just the duke3d.exe, when the game is installed?

make a copy of the dosbox config file that runs duke3d.exe. edit it with notepad and change all instances of duke3d.exe with setup.exe.
Guys my GOG.com keyboard wont function with these.

Then learn to play it
There are a LOT of forum posts about this.

Firstly, you must run the setup.exe within DOSBox as it isn't a native Windows program. GOG have most likely provided a shortcut that runs setup.exe within DOSBox, so this should be used.

Secondly, on Vista and 7, if you install into Program Files or Program Files (x86) then UAC and DEP may prevent the settings from being saved as these are protected folders and Windows tries to prevent files from being altered in those locations after the program installation. So if you have installed to either of these folders make sure you use the Run as administrator option (even if you are an admin user). Or just install outside of Program Files.
I cant as the controls are horrible :(
