we need to do this. anyone know of an xp/vista port of nukem with multiplayer support? this would RULE.
i <3 the duke.
duke nukem forever'll have one!!!!!
"DAMN THOSE ALIEN BASTARDS FOR SHOOTIN' UP MY RIDE!!!!"
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?"
but how about NOW instead of five years away? someone must know of one!
some of the original game files to run :-(
which will arrive first?
I think Chinese Democracy is an old wives tale that is told to scare the shit out of people.
downloading an xp port that looks good.
if it works then i'll upload it to my webspace for a bit for you lot to dl.
i'm making a nice rar with everything ppl need right now :D
for tomorrow night mofos!
"It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I'm all out of gum."
Just to let you people know.
Jaime, you are a special man, your mum would be proud.
I love how dangerous I felt playing Duke Nukem when it was released with it being an 18 and me being 12/13.
Let's face it, not enough games have an option to offer money to women in exchange for them jiggling their breasts about.
you could shoot them afterwards.
where you pick up whores, fuck them to somehow boost your health, then run them over to get your money back
but it was more fun
Well the shrinking gun was a laugh, I'll give you that.
you didn't need it tho
was better. Also the freeze gun.
So that's what it meant! Thanks for destroying my innocence. Wanker.
instructions.txt explains how to install.
don't have time to see if it all works tonight, maybe someone else can do some research?
... I'm actually tingling with excitement :D
do you turn on GOD MODE?!
you got multiplayer working okay then? wasnt sure whether there would be irritating port problems
so has anyone got this working multiplayer? If so game at 10 tonight?!?
will do in a bit though!
i think mine might be working. anyone fancy a tryout to see?
i am currently playing Duke Nukem 3D and listening to Elastica. what year is it?!?
I will try this in a mo.
10 tonight then.
I'm listening to some Minimal Techno, what does that make me then?
IT WONT LET ME MOVE
yeh mine works perfectly but i've not been able to connect to a multiplayer game with people in it yet.
it seems to freeze when i start a game (one player mind)
sounds like video issues?
it really should work if you follow all the instructions up there!
and it just crashed and told me i was using the wrong grp
you need to get the grp file from this zip:
and copy it into the original directory. it's the file called "duke3d".
now doing it with the original and its ok, just i suck and have set up stupid controls and it wont let me reset them
i wont be ready until 10:10
The single player game only works with the original grp file not the one I suppose to change it to.
I have however set up the controls to what I want...
"it's time to kick ass, and chew bubble gum.
and i'm aaaaaaaaall outta bubble gum."
the hour arrives?
let's see if this works then...
do you know how to host?
cos my wireless connection isnt too amazing
servername Drowned In Sound
mine is being poop
I'm attempting to join it...
it's asking me for a servername? uhm
on the dukester x.net master server #1. if that helps? username is guntrip. unsurprisngly..
trying to connect
no route to host
have you opened your ports?
I get a server connection error message :-(
what that means. it lists port as "Rancidmeat's DN3D port" ??
Dukester X.net Master Server #1 - Duke Nukem 3D
Latest News:- DX2.0 First Public Preview released! see website.
guntrip says: /open ports
not quite what i was aiming for..
i'll try hosting
Server Connection Error!
Error code 10060
The attempt to connect has timed out.
is in my room
waiting for more
I can't find you :-(
when you host you need to type
/servername drowned in sound
at the console
I've done it.
to join tom's room
is +syko+ ?
you realise that means he'll frag us all in the first 12 seconds, right?
program launches but no network connection
I'm very confused, someone else want to host?
daniiel or shucks wanna try?
connect to the ronnie guy running a room
to get destroyed.
i hate this.
just need a torrent link to the game...
what's happening. :(
we need to find another old skool game to do online stuff with
quake is far easier to get installed.
i dont really care what game as long as i get to shoot ppl
so i can nuke yo asses.
Civ 2 Mulitplayer. I also have that.
so I don't break the law and stuff.
Try to find Civ 2!
and Unreal Tournanment if anyone has those.
You just ended the session!
from his room :(
i am downloading a quake torrent
and you can get it from there
tom any ideas on how to patch it for xp and get multiplayer working?
would be awesome, thank yewwww.
I miss DOS :-(
i think i may have it.
gimme 30 mins
looking for a patch...
a very good program for playing it online
like YSI Civ 2 and we play that?
It's even the Multiplayer edition. Not that I've ever played it online...
can you save games on the multiplayer? i'm just thinking that 11pm on a monday might not be the best time to start a game ;)
methinks we need to get one game def working and then arrange to play it a night after or something
Just installed it. Will YSI in a bit.
dn didnt work. too old and shitty and that program was a bit homemmade. quake should have more support.
i seriously miss Civ2. i have both Call To Power games, but they're seriously bugged and the AI is so, so poor that they're really only fun if you fancy some random destruction - it's entirely possible to nuke each country out of existance one after the other, and nobody will stop you. hell, you can even declare war on everyone at the same time, and they'll continue to fight amongst themselves. ridiculous.
plus, Civ2 was so endlessly customisable. i used to make some bitchin' modpacks, and there are still fuckloads online..
duke nukem forever comes out
we HAVE to do some multiplayer
and I'm still in love with it. I'd love to play it online but I for some reason my multiplayer addon pack thing wouldnt work.
I have Multiplayer edition so we shall see what happens.
Frankly it can't be any worse then the Duke Nukem effort.
SO MUCH CIV2 STUFF!
in the height of my addiction. If I start reading that website I'll probably get sucked in again.
people are still making stuff for it!
We will keep it old school though.
i had loads of good ones..
about the "First Strike II" scenario!
"If large scale war is your thing"
um, yes plz/
does anyone have Red Alert? i found something the other day that suggests it may be possible to get it to run under XP..
Total Annhilation actually, I have that and it's amazing. Let's play that as well!
it was pretty fun..
So it works in Windows XP. I have no idea about it online though.
Can you play online Transport Tycoon? Crablin?
would be AMAZING!
does it run easily under XP, or does it require tweaking?
I've started a single player game, my life is disappearing before my very eyes...
i can't get it to load? i asks me to put in the CD-ROM, and i press cancel, and it doesn't do anything else?
weird, it always used to work under 95 without the CD-ROM :(
I did a full install, the bastards.
There may be something online to circumnavigate this...
except it's in spanish..
I can try hosting a multiplayer game to see if it works. Not enough time to actually play it but just enough to see it work.
I got an error when I tried to use the crack. Seeing as I'm not Spanish, I dunno what it's saying.
Try this perhaps. Google has plenty more.
So, um, OMG!!!! The menu music!! Civ II! On my laptop!
called Drowned in Sound. I'm waiting for players...
but I'm scared. Never played multiplayer Civ in my life!
or am I just doing this wrong?
I want to play!
DiS Civ 2 session tommorow evening.
meanwhile i am almost done with getting quake to work for everyone :D
i have quake
installed REALLY easily
the version is with tons of upgrades, looks amazing, has things like you can access your winamp/itunes playlist from within the shell and access and mess about with your playlist :D
plus multiplayer connect is so easy!
once i've got it ready for you all to download i'll make a new thread
no need to open any ports or anything, its
mega mega easy
I haven't played quake in years :D
And celebrate 10 year old video games!
I'd love to play Monkey Island again. It's been too long...
We shall make a proper game of this tommorow. I need sleep now.
i will post the quake thread in a minute
along with instructions so we can have a game of that tomorrow evening
i'm fully prepared to spend all of saturday playing Civ2...
I have a hot date that night!
I'll make a proper thread for it tommorow.
