EDuke32 Wii (sometimes mistakenly called "WiiDuke32") is a Wii port of Duke Nukem 3D using EDuke32. For more information about the Wii port specifically and Wii homebrew in general, see WiiBrew.



See Acquiring the EDuke32 Source Code.


As part of his porting, tueidj made a few custom modifications to SDL Wii and libaesnd. The source and compiled libraries of SDL Wii (incorporating the modified libaesnd) are available on Dukeworld.

To install the compiled libraries into the devkitPPC folder, type make install.

The modified libaesnd itself is necessary if you plan to compile your own SDL Wii. The patch, the patched source, and the compiled library and include header file can all be found on Dukeworld.

Building Instructions

These instructions require Windows or WINE.

  1. Set up Building EDuke32 on Windows using MinGW.
  2. Download and install devkitPPC.
  3. Download the modified SDL Wii, including libaesnd. If you want to compile it yourself, at the devkitPro shell, type make clean then make. Either way, type make install to copy the libraries to the devkitPPC library location.
  4. Run wiibuild.bat.


Gets the disassembly interspersed with line numbers:

powerpc-eabi-objdump -d -l boot.elf > eduke32.ppcasm

Gets the addresses of various data in the executable:

powerpc-eabi-nm -l boot.elf |sort > symbols.nm
