Installation and configuration
- Download EDuke32 and extract it to a new folder.
- The next step is to provide EDuke32 with the game data. 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".)
- If you have your Duke Nukem 3D or Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition CD, you can find them in your DN3DINST or ATOMINST directory, respectively.
- If you bought the game from GOG.com, these files are in the C:\Program Files\GOG.com\Duke Nukem 3D directory or a similar location.
- If you bought Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition on Steam you can find these files in <path to Steam Library>\SteamApps\common\Duke Nukem 3D\gameroot\classic.
- If you have not purchased the game, the shareware demo is also supported.
- Optionally, see the HRP site which lists graphical and music update packs, including the High Resolution Pack.
- Run EDuke32! EDuke32 (eduke32.exe) will allow you to play the game, and Mapster32 (mapster32.exe) lets you create custom maps.
- If you have trouble, see Troubleshooting EDuke32.
