DCeric Play's: Duke Nukem 3D using eduke32 (PC)



Today DCeric Plays: Duke Nukem 3D using the eduke 32 mod.  It adds 3D textures giving the game a next gen feel.  This was requested by Chris Fleet.

Game available at:

Mod is available at:
http://www.eduke32.com/

To get hi-res textures you'll also need this:

*There is lag in the video this mod is heavy on CPU usage turning off disk cache may help with this during normal play.  Video Capture software may also cause lag as well.  I mentioned in this video Duke Nukem 3D was released in 1998 it was actually released in 1996.  Of course not all the secrets were found in this game play video but this was more about the mod then the actual game. Sorry what was not explained in the video and explained to me to begin with is you'll need the hi res texture pack available in the third link. Eduke32 just adds polymer textures to the characters.

*For better performance turn off models. Disk Cache can only be used if you have enough VRAM.  This was mentioned to me on Steam by a user named >M@tEolt;

How to Play Duke Nukem Manhattan Project in Higher Resolutions (PC,GOG)



I decided to get Duke Nukem Manhattan Project today and its a great looking game for a game that was released in 2002.  Of course there is one issue and that is that out of the box it doesn't support the selection of widescreen resolutions.  Of course there is a way to solve the problem and its quite easy.  Now this may work for other versions of the game but I did this using GOG so that is what I am using for this tutorial.

First your going to want to open the program.  When the launcher opens check mark "skip this dialog next time".  If you don't do this the game will save the settings selected from the launcher then of course you'll have to repeat the below step again.



Next step we gotta find the config.cfg file which by default should be located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Duke Nukem - Manhattan Project\duke\base".  Open config.cfg and once opened press and hold "ctrl" then press "f".  Search for uset r_mode and press okay.  Your going to want to change the following numbers from "640x480x32" to "1920x1080x32".



There you are finished that is it two steps that was easy right.  So now all you have to do is open the game and the game will no longer open the launcher and launch in the resolution you requested in the config file. But remember do not go to the graphics options and change anything or it may go back to its defaults.

You can get Duke Nukem Manhattan Project from the following link:

Elysian Shadows Kickstarter



I've been following the Elysian Shadows development for quite sometime before it was even mentioned of getting released on a variety of other consoles.  At first it was going to be a Dreamcast exclusive and I believe at one point maybe even a non-commercial game.  There has been so many changes since the early days which of course go back to the early 2000's.  They changed the graphics engine which has improved the overall outcome of what this game is going to bring to not only the Dreamcast but a variety of other consoles and PC.

Right now they are asking you through kickstarter to help them make their dreams come true and of course to make this game get into your hands.  They have over $50,000 of their $150,000 goal and I believe they'll get their goal with your help.

Check out their game at Kickstarter and put in a pledge to get other interesting stuff from team Elysian Shadows.

Put in your pledge here:

Super Noah's Ark Getting Re-released (PC,Mac,Linux)


It used to be quite a rare title but my buddy Eleazar Galindo Navarro from Piki Interactive got the rights to re-release it for the Super Nintendo and now is trying to release this through Steam Greenlight. Hopefully we will see more Super Nintendo releases come to Steam. NO! I'm not talking of Super Mario Brothers although that would be awesome.
