JonoF's Duke Nukem 3D Port (JFDuke3D)
This is the home of my port of 3D Realms Entertainment's Duke Nukem 3D to Windows using my port of Ken Silverman's Build game engine. It is work in progress so that means it might crash and burn and be unstable.
9 October 2005 - New release
Not much specifically to do with Duke has been changed in this release, but engine bugfixes to do with Shadow Warrior all serve to improve the stability of the game. One new feature however is the support of per-surface skins in MD3 models. Let me know of any problems you find, and please review the release notes.
31 May 2005 - Minor update
This release updates JFDuke3D to the same engine revision as the JFShadowWarrior port. It also fixes some problems with multiplayer going out of sync, so things should be better for online play now.
28 February 2005 - Updated net test released
This is an update to the previous release to fix the ignored command line parameter bug, make the network game waiting period more intuitive (and allow you to abort the wait without killing the game through Task Manager), and fix some other things. This should make things more comfortable for the brave people wanting to test networked JFDuke3D.
About the Port
- Native Windows and Linux port using my Build engine port.
- OpenGL rendering support.
- True-colour textures support.
The aim of this port is to present Duke3D as closely as possible to the original game while adding optional features to expand the possibilities of the game.
Available on this site is a snapshot of the source plus the corresponding binaries of the port for your sampling. There are some special release notes detailing the brand new features of this release. You will need the latest version of my Build port to compile the game.
