Get eduke32. Set your mods in the directory you want them in, then start eduke32 up and tell it where the mod directory is.
Isn't there any way to play em without any 3rth party software cause for some reason I can't save the game in eduke32 cause it will crash, it's fucking weird...
+ at least when I played it with the High Resolution Pack but the problem is with eduke I'm really sure of that cause in the same window of eduke it said an error in the debugger when it crashed.

the save game crash has been fixed. you were using an outdated version.

upgrade your eduke with the latest synthesis:

http://dukeworld.duke4.net/eduke32/synthesis/

your problem was very simple to resolve and you should have asked instead of giving up right away

as for using dosbox, you need to run the setup.exe that came with your duke game. it gives you the option to play user made maps. As far as mods and TCs go, most of them include instructions on how to install and run with the dos(4gw) -original- version of the game, so you need to read them then in most cases figure out dosbox commands (i.e. how to mount directories or simulate drives, browse through directories and list files, run programs with additional extended commands, etc.) to manually run their bat's or exe's - or write your own dosbox .conf files

Really depends on the TC you're trying to play. some are pretty simple to get going, some require a phd in rocketry or brain surgery to get running.

Thank you very much for the really helpfull tips. I will try the new synthesis...
if you still have problems post what's happening and myself or someone else will give you a hand figuring out how to get it working right

for those not interested in using a port and absolutely want to stick with dosbox i would make some suggestions and recommendations:

to play user made maps you need to run the setup.exe that came with the game
find the duke3d.conf file and open it with an editor
replace all instances of duke3d.exe with setup.exe and save file as dukesetup.conf
find your icon that launches duke3d and make a copy of it
edit the copy to reflect the command line to launch setup.exe instead of duke3d.exe, then rename the icon to dukesetup

in most instances you can do the same thing with mods and TC's
edit the duke3d.conf file and replace instances of duke3d.exe with whatever exe or bat is used to launch the TC
again make a copy of the duke3d launching icon and edit the command line to reflect whatever is used to launch the TC and rename it to the TC's name

i highly recommend making a backup copy of your duke3d folder with all the files and keeping it in a safe place

it's alot easier to drop all the files for a mod into the duke directory and get it to work than it is to try to remove all those loose files once you're done playing it. Leaving those loose files in your duke directory also has a good chance of messing up the original game and possibly making it completely unplayable.

best to just delete all the files in the duke directory and drop in a fresh clean copy from a backup instead of risking deleting the wrong files or trying to figure out what file you missed and is messing with the game
