Duke Nukem 3D Walkthrough
Something I've wanted to do for ages now I'm finally getting around to doing. It's a walkthrough for Duke Nukem 3D. We have a few of these on our website (Shadow Warrior, Max Payne 1, and an aborted attempt at Max Payne 2). But never one for Duke3D.

The primary reason is grabbing the screenshots was a pita on the old DOS version. DOSBox was an option, but I never really looked into that for some reason or another. Now that we finished the Duke3D port for the 360, I thought about using that version to grab screenshots, mostly because the development kit tools make it braindead easy to get screenshots. The game is the same as the original, so all the art and level design is the same, so I set out to finally make an official walkthrough for the game.

Take a look, and tell me what you think of it. As the walkthrough is 100% my work, I have to admit to being curious to see what people think of it.

http://www.3drealms.com/duke3d/walkthrough/index.html

I'm not ready to post it as news on the front page of the 3DR site, so I would prefer folks not spread this to other sites until I have completed the work. Thanks.

Very cool Joe! It looks awesome. Even though I finished the game millions of times, I still enjoyed reading it. Oh and, there's a typo at Death Row's 4th Secret. ("cell")

No irony in having a typo when pointing out a typo, eh?

That's not really the point here - its supposed to be a walkthrough, not a "tell all" about the game, and not really a behind the scenes thing, either.

Isn't the general purpose of walkthroughs are to help people pass where they got stuck? That's a bit unnecessary for him to ask it anyway

Nice work, Joe - I'm enjoying the read.

One thing: on secret #2 in Death Row, don't you have to hit "use" on the altar to open up the wall?

Yup. Forgot that. Actually, now that I think about it, I do recall thinking I had to write it, but forgot to actually do so. Added - thanks.

Did you miss the big yellow text that says "Work in progress"?

Seriously, I wouldn't comment on the "current" level, you're always likely to be looking at an incomplete thing, as I am generally still working on that one.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D Walkthrough
A very minor thing really, but in Death Row - Secret #2, where you've written "First you need to shoot out the stained glass window on the left. Once you've done that, it will turn the room red...", in the PC version at least (not sure about other versions though), pressing "use" on the altar instead turns the room red.

Apart from that, this is a great walkthrough so far.

It's great.
It was always Duke 64 i needed the walkthru's for though, I still dunno how to get into that place at the end of the street in level 1 (with the big doors that have black mesh over them).
Wait, i'm going off topic...
Anyhow, yeah, it's good.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D Walkthrough
Some of those levels were real pain to get all the secrets. Especially if you did not have a jetpack. Yes, I'm looking at you Lunar Reactor!

Dark Side was rough too, as there was one I thought I needed a jetpack for (turns out I didn't). I had to go back TWO levels to get a jetpack, and play my way back again. That really sucked. (The one I'm talking about was the one where you jump off the train)

As an added bonus, are you going to add in all the "random texts" that are around the place?

Like "Bite me" found above one of the toilets in Lunar reactor or "You should not be here yet!" found at the very end of Raw meat (which needs DNclip for) and the many others....

No, I am not. There are way too many of those, and this project is taking long enough as it is. The odd thing like that is in there, but I'm not planning on covering every single thing, nor how to get every object and item in the game.

It's a walkthrough. I tell you how to finish the level, how to get all the secrets. That's what they're for.

Edit: There's no DNCLIP in here anyway, so you couldn't get to the one you're talking about anyway.

I just got done with Tier Drops. What a pain in the ass that was. There's no obvious "path" through the level, so I had to spend time figuring out what the level designer was trying to do. I couldn't figure it out, so I had to actually call Levelord on the phone. Fortunately he remembered.

Short of it is it was supposed to be a DM only map that got plopped into single player as a secret level, so there is no obvious way through the level except the 10 second path.

As for "not much left", my goal when I started this was to have it finished before Arcade comes out which is next Wednesday. That means I have to be done with it by close of business on Tuesday. We'll see if I can still make it.

The main reason I never did one is it is a pain to get all the screenshots. With the old game, I'd be saving all over the place. The replay system has been in use QUITE a lot during my work on this project.

The devkit 360 in my office lets me take screenshots from my main computer, and keeps 'em there.
