Duke Nukem 3D: High Resolution Pack v5.4 (June 15, 2015)

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):
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 v5.4 (SVN build #674)
  • EDuke32 binaries (r5267/June 15, 2015 - also included as zipped 32/64-bit releases with Mapster32 editor)
  • 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.
Please make sure to use latest EDuke32 binaries!

SNAPSHOT RELEASE:
HRP file pulled from the SVN repository. Newer than latest official release, but untested. Otherwise like zipfile release above. Use this file at your own risk!


* 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 PSX HIGHRES SOUNDS
Sounds ripped from "Total Meltdown" (the PSX release of the game). Most of these sounds are identical or very similar to the files from the PC version while having a higher quality.
Usage: Place the zipfile into your EDuke32 "autoload" dir.

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.

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 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).

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.

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 WITH OR WITHOUT HRP:
- Place the music pack into your EDuke32 "autoload" folder.
- Run EDuke32. Highres music will be loaded automatically.
