    • If you bought the game from Good Old Games, these files are in the C:\Program Files\GOG.com\Duke Nukem 3D directory or a similar location.
    • If you have not purchased the game, the shareware demo is also supported.
  2. Download the latest version of EDuke32 (currently a development snapshot; try a nightly build for the latest improvements) and extract it to the folder you created in step 1.
  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.
