Duke Nukem 3D: High Resolution Pack v5.3 (September 30, 2013)

Here you can get the files required for running the Highres Pack. The EDuke32 Polymer renderer offers superior lighting, effects like specular maps and more eyecandy. For compatibility purposes, you can still run the previous renderer (called Polymost) with less features, but increased speed.

HRP contents have been optimized for the EDuke32 Polymer renderer. Polymost users will experience issues (e.g. badly aligned HUD weapons) and should consult the FAQ for workarounds!

This is no installer, but a self-extracting (7-Zip) archive which will create a new folder 'Duke3D' on any drive/directory you specify. No shortcuts will be created, just launch the game with eduke32.exe from the installation dir (or create a shortcut on your own).

This package includes...

  • Duke Nukem 3D HRP v5.3 (with latest maphacks)
  • EDuke32 binaries (r4069/Sep 21, 2013 - also included as zipped release with Mapster32 editor and required files)
  • Roland SC-55 Music Pack v4.0
  • Duke Nukem 3D v1.3d shareware episode (duke3d.grp, duke.rts) *

Comes without installer or extra files and requires a previous HRP installation. Put this file (duke3d_hrp.zip) into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir manually AND remove any other HRP, update pack or maphacks before launching the game.

Duke3D HRP Music Packs

There is a music pack for (almost) every taste. If you don't like the soundtrack that comes with the HRP, maybe try any besides the SC-55 one and see whether it sounds better for you ingame.
Get this small "Music Only" override file (0.2 KB) if you want to use any of the music packs below without the HRP. Place it into your EDuke32 "autoload" folder (along with your music pack). After that, highres music will be loaded without requiring the HRP file. [However, do not forget to remove the file again in case you decide to use the HRP after all!]

Duke Caribbean: Life's A Beach Plus & Nuclear Winter Plus - by Hendricks266


Voxels have the advantage of looking much closer to the original sprites than models from HRP. While looking more "pixellated", they maintain the classic feel of the game for a "retro" gameplay experience.
Usage: Put the zipfile into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir. (Note: Will NOT work with Polymer renderer!)

DukePlus is a popular mod for EDuke32. It offers enhancements that affect both visuals and gameplay, e.g. transluscent water, gore/weapon damage effects or (optional) weapon replacements.

  Fissile Materials


Two versions are available. While the "Full" version shows fully naked babes as models and on screens/posters, the "Lite" version only removes bras. Place the zipfile into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir and make sure it's loaded after the HRP.
