Duke Tag
I just rediscovered Duke Nukem's awesome net play thanks to eDuke32. I used to play it on good old DOS with my friend on Win95. Anyway I read on Wikipedia recently that there is a mode called "Duke Tag" that was available on Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition. I have the Atomic addition but when I start a Net Game I only have Co-Op and Dukematch in the game types.

Where is this illusive Duke Tag? How I pine for some Duke capture the flag shinanigins.

Thanks,

Cam

Hello, To keep up to date with the latest EDuke32 news make sure to follow the official forum for it here.

Now about your question, to get Duke Tag you need to start a DM game on Episode 4 Level 10 (The Queen)

You need to hit that switch that says Duke Tag in the starting room for it to start it correctly, but what I remember from memory is that you need a minimum of four players for it to work correctly. (I could be wrong about that)

Re: Duke Tag
Thanks for the info! That's a strange way to get into Duke Tag, i never would have figured that one out! I will give it a try when I get my laptop back from repair and report back to see if you can do it with 2 players, if not then I can try round up some more computers.

Although I also remember reading on Wikipedia article that you can add CPU bots as well. Maybe I can just one one computer and add 3 bots? Does anyone know how to do that?

Bots will be useless for Duke Tag because they are not programed to play co-operatically and will just start gunning down the closest player even if they are on the same team.

Re: Duke Tag
Yeah, I was reading about their AI, but it would still let me try to get Duke Tag actually running without the need to set up two computers. So is it possible/easy to load the bots in a Episode 4 Level 10 multi player game?
