Installing EDuke32

  1. Copy the contents of the DN3DINST or ATOMINST directory off of your Duke Nukem 3D or Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition CD to a directory of your choosing on your hard disk.
  2. Download the latest version of EDuke32 (currently a development snapshot) and start the installer. Note: if you downloaded the zip version of EDuke32 instead, extract it to the directory you created in step 1 and proceed to step 8.
  3. Click next to view the terms of the GNU General Public License. If you agree to the licensing terms, click "I Agree" and continue to the component selection screen.
  4. Choose which components you'd like to install. The default selection is to install both EDuke32 and Mapster32, the enhanced Build editor. If you're just here to kick ass and have no plans to create custom maps, feel free to uncheck the 'Level editor' checkbox. If you plan to play multiplayer using version 1.5.x of DukesterX, make sure to select that component here. You may also want to install the sample custom content definition files if you plan on modifying the game further than creating basic user maps.
  5. Click 'Browse' and select the directory you created in step 1. Click next.
  6. Select a start menu folder in which to place the EDuke32 shortcuts and then click 'Install'.
  7. Once you click the 'Finish' button, a list of changes detailing the new features and bug fixes since the previous version of EDuke32 will be displayed. Feel free to close this if you aren't modding the game.
  8. Run EDuke32!
