I a total noob and cannot figure out how to get this to work. I have a copy of D3D from here, I downloaded eduke32 but how do I get it to work. I read the instructions and they might as well be in a foreign language because I don't get it. I also posted in the duke4 forums. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Again I probably sound really stupid.

nvm I figured it out
Download the latest build (from this link) and then extract all its contents directly into the DN3D folder without giving EDuke32 its own subfolder (DN3D is installed to C:\Program Files\GOG.com\Duke Nukem 3D by default; on 64-bit versions of Windows it will go into the "Program Files (x86)" equivalent instead). EDuke32 should detect the files automatically when you first run it. The launcher presents you with a few options, but for basic use you can just leave these alone and launch the game straight away; no other setup is required.

EDIT: oh, I see you fixed it now. Well, hopefully what I've written will help someone else at some point. :)

I just did the above, but when I try to unzip eduke 32 into my Duke Nukem file it tells me I may need Administration rights to change the file. The thing is I am using the administration account. What should I do?
I got Win7 home premium 64 bit

Thats UAC talking :/ - UAC doesn't care if you are on an Admin account, certain locations/files are protected (anyting in Program Files). The usual best bet is to install games outside of Program Files, but if it is already there you have a few options:
1) Run the unzip utility as Admin, open the archive, and extract that way
2) Give yourself full rights (or at least add Write access) to the game folder with the Security tab in the properties dialogue
Got it to work:)
Thanks for the help!

This worked for me too, thanks! BTW, when extracting to the folder, if it asks if you want to overwrite and replace the files, go ahead and do so.
