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

Check out details here (especially recommended to newbies) >>

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.

IMPORTANT:
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!


FULL RELEASE (SFX):
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) *

ZIPFILE RELEASE:
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.


* Owners of the full version please replace duke3d.grp with the file from their 1.3d Registered/1.5 Atomic CD-ROM/digital copy!

Duke3D HRP-Related Files

Check out details here (especially recommended to newbies) >>

Files you can download in this section can be optionally used with existing HRP installation to further enhance your gameplay experience.

DUKE3D ADDON HIGHRES PACKS
In order to use the DukeDC/Caribbean/Nuclear Winter HRPs, you will also need
- groupfiles of the addons (dukedc.grp, vacation.grp, nwinter.grp)
- Duke3D HRP (addon HRPs override original contents).

DUKE3D VOXEL PACK
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.
Important: Currently, Polymer does not support voxel rendering!
Usage: Put the zipfile into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir.

DUKEPLUS MOD
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.

XXX PACKS
"Full" version shows fully naked babes (as models and on screens/posters), "Lite" version only removes bras.
Usage: Place the zipfile into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir and make sure it's loaded after the HRP.

Duke3D HRP Music Packs

Check out details here (especially recommended to newbies) >>

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 (which comes with the full HRP release) and see whether it sounds better for you ingame.

USING MUSIC PACKS WITHOUT HRP:
- Get this "Music Only" override file (0.2 KB).
- Place it into your EDuke32 "autoload" folder (along with your music pack).
- Run EDuke32. Highres music will be loaded without requiring the HRP file.
- NOTE: If you want to use the HRP, you need to remove duke3d_musonly.zip from "autoload" dir.
