Howdy Fellas,

I recently...rather naively...downloaded Duke Nukem 3d from an untrusted site....bammm....total infection....reformat....reinstall...

I want to show this game to my teenage kids.

I recently threw my original cd of it away...arrrg.

Looking at buying an original CD from ebay.

My question is are there any trusted programs that will allow you to play this on a windows xp machine?

I am totally not download anything right off a google search for "playing duke nukem 3d on windows xp" unless someone here can say they have done it and direct me to a trusted download.

Thanks

You can purchase Duke Nukem 3d: Atomic Edition for $5.99 here: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/duke_nukem_3d_atomic_edition

gog.com, or Good Old Games, is a legitimate and authorized reseller of tons of old (very old!) video games.

Check this out: EDuke32 • Duke3D for Windows, Linux and OS X

Edit: Andrew's is better if you just want the original game. eduke32 lets you expand on that with homemade enhancements.

THANKS!!!

I purchased the game from gog.com. Half the cost of the "vintage" cd.

I runs perfectly on windows xp. Downloaded and installed...ran first time.

Can I use Eduke32 on this install or do I need to find the original game exe??

Sure would like to try the mods out.

Thanks again

My understanding is that (legally speaking, but I'm not a lawyer) you can use the version you just purchased with Eduke32. Whether or not they'll work together is up to you to find out :)

Thanks Andrew,

Since the version I purchased does run on windows xp I wasn't sure if Eduke32 would work. I thought Eduke32 was a program that allows an original DOS version to play on windows.

I guess I will try Eduke32 on the version I have and see as you suggest.

I will report back.

Looks like it is fine to use Eduke32 with the GOG.com version.

Their install instructions say it works with it.

See the wiki page here

SUCCESS!!!

Eduke32 rocks. This is much batter. Better mouse control. Keyboard and mouse option in the game menu.

If you want to play Duke Nukem 3D get the game at gog.com ...cost 6 bucks and download Eduke32.

Im an old guy now but when I was a kid I spent hours playing this game. My sons are hooked on it now...LOL....imagine that something 20 years old still rocks.

The coolest part is you get ring tones with your download from gog.com...now I can have my phone say "your the king" when my wife calls. AHAHAHAH

Thanks guys
