Cautiously-enthusiastic salutations, compatibility-wizards of GOG,
I have an issue regarding a rare copy of "NUKE IT 1000", an add-on collection of a literal 1000 levels for Duke Nukem 3D. For starters, getting any kind of help (http://dukenukem.wikia.com/wiki/Unofficial_expansion_packs
) isn't likely. The likelihood of anyone on here even having a copy, let alone getting it to work on a Windows 7 machine is small so I'll hold off on hope for now. Regardless, I should ask, or if anyone knows of any way to get it done.
Much appreciation for taking the time to read,
Yeah, this is actually pretty easy.
Here's what you do :
- Install the level pack to a DIR under the Duke DIR. Something like Maps. Just to make things easy later.
- To run eduke (or duke3d for that matter) with a custom map the command is simply :
eduke32 -map <themap.map> where you obviously replace <themap.map> with the filename in the level pack.
EG - eduke32 -map .\maps\NUKE IT\A-B\2009.map
- You can put the above command into a batch file (text file with the extension.bat, so 2009.bat for the above) to make it more convenient to run.
- If you want an even more generic version you could make a batch file called something like edukemap.bat and put the following in it :
eduke32 -map .\maps\NUKE IT\%1.map
and run it from command line in the DIR you installed Duke3D and Eduke32 to. Then to run the 2009.map you'd use that batch file tool like such :
edukemap A-B\2009 and it will do the rest.
Try that and let me know how it goes. If it needs to be adjusted it will just be by the DIR's you have everything installed to. Pretty insignificant difference.
