|About High Resolution Pack (HRP)|
Remember "Duke Nukem 3D", the great first-person shooter 3D Realms released back in 1996? Its cool protagonist, ingame atmosphere, original weaponry and many other features make it worth playing even today.
For all Duke fans who want to play the game again in a modern Windows environment with 3D accelerated graphics, the Duke3D community has created the High Resolution Pack (HRP). Utilizing the amazing skills of various texturing and modelling artists, the project´s goal is to replace all textures and sprites with high-res versions, optimizing it for latest OpenGL ports.
All you need is the "duke3d.grp" file from your original Duke3D v1.3d or Atomic (v1.5) CD-ROM. You can also play with the Duke3D Shareware Episode.
Here's what the Duke3D HRP has to offer:
While the HRP is still "work in progress" and missing quite a few textures and models, you can check the Duke Nukem 3D HRP Art Thread for additional content or - even better - contributing something of your own.
Since this is a work in progress version of the pack which has not been tested extensively, there are probably some issues that need fixing. Please let us know of any problems with it so they can be sorted out in future versions. Also notify us if we are missing any art that’s been released prior to the packs release date, even though we have skipped some stuff since we simply did not like it, there is maybe some stuff that has been missed to include.
Please also be aware of the fact that we are still missing models and textures because these have not been remade yet by the community. They will probably be featured in upcoming releases of the HRP.

The honor of writing the first decent Windows port for Duke3D belongs to Jonathon Fowler (JonoF). While he isn't
directly continuing his project any more, Plagman's/TerminX's EDuke32 port is still based on it. Jonathon's work will always
be a part of this endeavor and is highly appreciated.
The EDuke32 port is an enhanced version of JonoF's initial JFDuke3D port and features enhanced mod support together with tons of newly-added code. It is released and maintained by TerminX. For the time being, we recommend using EDuke32 for running HRP because the port gets updated much more often and HRP content has been optimized for it.
