    • If you bought the game from Steam (as Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition) or GOG.com, copying the data yourself is not required. EDuke32 will use the Windows registry to automatically identify your installation and add the required data to its search path.
    • Otherwise, copy the files DUKE3D.GRP and DUKE.RTS from one of the following locations to the folder created in step 1. (On Windows, the GRP file may show up as a "Microsoft Program Group".)
      • Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour on Steam: <path to Steam Library>\SteamApps\common\Duke Nukem 3D Twentieth Anniversary World Tour.
      • Duke Nukem 3D (3D Realms Anthology) on Steam: <path to Steam Library>\SteamApps\common\Duke Nukem 3D\Duke Nukem 3D.

      • Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition on GOG.com: <Program Files>\GOG.com\Duke Nukem 3D
      • Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition CD-ROM: <CD root>\ATOMINST
      • Duke Nukem 3D CD-ROM: <CD root>\DN3DINST
      • If you have not purchased the game, the shareware demo is also supported.
  3. Optionally, see the HRP site which lists graphical and music update packs, including the High Resolution Pack.
  4. Run EDuke32! EDuke32 (eduke32.exe) will allow you to play the game, and Mapster32 (mapster32.exe) lets you create custom maps.
  5. To run any of Duke Nukem 3D's various add-ons, like Duke It Out in DC, Life's a Beach, Nuclear Winter, etc, refer to the Official Add-on Installation Guide after following steps 1 through 3.
