As with NW, could a prop modeler please make the following: high-quality sandals, sunglasses (one lens (Cycloid), two lenses (Pig Cop), and three lenses (Octabrain), a snorkel face mask, and an inner tube flotation device.

I fixed a major boo-boo in the readme. It still linked to the NWHRP thread instead of this one.

v1.0 was a rush job, but it has all been fixed (I hope).

Well I've already used the unpackssi program to make group files of all three of the ssi files on my lab disk. I tried each one in my duke3d folder along with the duke3d.grp. No luck.
Hey... I just realized what your problem is. If you use unpackssi on the *15.SSI file, then you should get a VACATION.PRG file. Rename it to VACATION.GRP and you should be good to go.

Super happy progress, all thanks to our resident birdbrain chicken!





Caribbean is just begging for enhanced stuff, like the readdition of the expander ring and a non-cheesy looking beach ball. As a result, I have decided to stop worrying about JFDuke3D and Duke3DW support and just improve it.

(Voodoo Doll from Blood, anyone?)

TerminX, what's the DEF syntax for the 8-bit art replacement?

OMG! this is one of my favorite addons for Duke 3D (The other being the Gate) LAB has been begging for a HRP for a while now.

There should also be a HRP of The Gate, but there is a lot of new art there so it would take a while, I cannot code to save my life lol so I could not do it. It is probably considered a cult classic since alot of people liked it whereas alot of people didn't.

Anyways, this HRP is looking great so far, I can't wait

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
Is The Gate even an official addon, or just a TC? I think it was done by the same people who made Twin Dragon for SW (Level Infinity).

Spoiler:

---

Anyway, back on topic. If there are any submissions that you would like to make for the next version (for either addon HRP), they must be completed and submitted to me by 19:00 CST (GMT-6) on Friday the 19th.

The Caribbean user maps I referenced above were done by HangNail. The episode is called Shark's Cove. I have contacted him with the request that he reupload it so that I could add VacaHRP support to it.

I have engineered the addon CON files to be better suited to mods. The one that is used with the /x parameter (VacaEDuke.con and NWEDuke.con) simply have an include parameter to link to the normal root CON files. In this way, user episodes and maps can modify the contents, without be rereleased every time there is a new version, and without requiring that an old version be used.

For the spoiler bit,

Could always use the models from that Starship Troopers game? I own it but I can't find the CD/DVD? now, plus it never worked in my drive for some odd reason and I had to install it using another computer drive on the network.

First off, there's the question of whether it could be converted to MD3 or not. Second, it would probably be copyright infringement.

Anything can be converted to md3 if you know what you are doing.

I guess it probley does... But then don't all mods rip stuff from other games these days?

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
I don't think The Gate was a complete TC. I reckon it is sorta in the middle of Addon and TC. It has alot of new art and a new weapon and enemy which would pull it towards TC, yet the core gameplay is no different from Duke 3D.

As for a SST TC HRP, I wouldn't mind it. Starship Troopers was probably THE greatest Duke 3D ever created (Although DTA is giving some worthy competition )

As for the whole copyright argument that has sprung up, everyone is taking copyrighted material for their TC. The Commander is taking Grand Theft Auto. As long as no profit is made, who really cares? lol

A friend of mine made files for co-op support on SS. I'll do same for 1 or 2 levels of The Gate (E1L1 can't go in boss area more than 1 time, so need teleporter, E2L2 if you don't find code you need teleporter too, ...).

Behold!

VacaHRP v1.5

Instructions: Extract the 7-Zip archive to your EDuke32 directory and run the batch file. Map patching will automatically take place when it is run, if everything works. Do not put anything in autoload.

Thanks to Thundik81 for the mirroring. And BIG props for chicken, Mark McWane, and Matéos for the new submissions!

I'll put up a list of how much better this version is from the previous one in a couple of days. The place where I'm at has dial-up.

Another Duke Fan, do you know the "Edit" function ?

Do you have lastest EDuke32, HRP, etc ? Try clean install : EDuke32.exe, DUKE3D.GRP, VACATION.GRP, autoload with HRP files and VacaHRP : it will run.

Mirror link added on my site. Note that I added the corrected batch file to the pack. Additionally, I have used a PNG optimizing tool for improved image compression, reducing filesize by more than 2MB.

NightFright:
What tool did you use? This is what I use:
Code:
for %i in (*.png) do pngout.exe "%i" /f5 /v /y
(For each file, of course.)

Another Duke Fan:
There is a VacaEDuke.con in the vacation_hrp.zip file. Extract it, if you need to. Also, make sure you have no vacation/ folder or any Vacation CON, DEF, or MHK files loose in the directory that would override the pack's new contents.

Are you using the latest snapshot? Like Matéos said, try a clean install with just the latest EDuke32 snapshot, DUKE3D.GRP, HRP, HRP Update Pack, VacaHRP, and VACA15.SSI (not VACATION.PRG/GRP). The batch file will extract the SSI, and then run your clean install. Do not put anything in autoload.

I was using PngOptimizer. It may have a better compression algorithm in specific cases. Besides, it has a nice drag'n'drop feature which I find pretty useful, especially when working in Windows environment, anyway. Link: http://psydk.org/PngOptimizer.php

Re: Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach HRP (VacaHRP)
Something else while playing through the game with latest HRP:
Some enemies will slip along the floor after being killed. When you touch them, you kinda nudge them and push them further. They somehow behave like the beachball, perhaps some code got screwed up.
I see that in the "extra" folder, the cutscene is available. Is it currently impossible to add this to the game? Plus I think the additional "Doomsday.ogg" in "extra" dir is not required since it already resides in the "music" subdir.
Otherwise, the usual things. Maphacks needed and so on. Will see if I can do something about those at some point.

Regarding the dead enemies sliding around:
That was no issue with your HRP, it obviously was an EDuke32 bug which TerminX fixed with latest snapshot (Dec 30).

Shark's cove doesn't include any new art, so its hrp compatible.
