    Duke3D Source Released


    Linguica

    This apparently isn't a joke, as 3D Realms has announced on their webpage that they have finally released the source code, GPLed, to that other 2.5-D FPS that we all love and/or hate. Obviously this isn't Doom news but do you see so many other pressing stories that this is wasting your time?! You can head over to the 3DR webpage to download it, I assume someone will be making a ZDuke or a Dukesday or a Duke Legacy before long. BTW way to go 3DR, it only took you five years longer than id! Woo!

    Kinda late, but at least they released it under the GPL. Unlike some companies we could mention eh?

    The Duke what?


    The community - you know, a bunch of diehard fans all over the world that still play and make maps etc. for a game. In this case, Duke. (yes, there are still maps being made for it - the excellent Roch series for example)

    Anyway, now the source has been released, hopefully we'll get a windows port of Duke that will let me play it with sound. (hooray!)

    /me awaits the release of ZDuke 2.0 (oh wait, Duke already has most of those features...)

    That's basically all I'm asking for.

    This is great news!

    ThisStrife.com. Sure the community there's largely based around the comic on that site, but there's still a few projects roaming around (glBUILD, The Night The Forums Went Crazy, BobSPx, and my own LABRAT mod.)

    Now feel stupid. I used to go there all the time and read that comic.
    Don't they also do work on DukeGL? Now that I realize it I have people on my AIM buddy list from there. Those silly Ken Sliverman Worshippers. :p

    Bastards. All this waiting, and it ends up using quite a bit of inline ASM, making the possibility of a PocketPC port quite distant.

    Doom used lots of ASM, also.

    You just need to refactor it out, not a particularly difficult task :P

    Not the Duke 3d Engine, the BUILD engine, and Blood and Shadow Warrior are heavily modified, heh, so, to rebuild Blood or Shadow Warrior from Duke 3d's source would be nigh-impossible :-P

    They gave up on DukeGL a while back and decided to port BUILD to OpenGL first, to do the majirity of engine work easily.

    alien species

    After a brief resbit, Duke decides to get back to work.

    Cmdr: "Duke, we've got a lot of scared people down there.
    Some reports even claim that people are already
    slowly changing into aliens."
    Duke: "No problem, my speciality is in croud control."
    Cmdr: "Croud control, my ass! Remember that incident
    during the war? You created nuthin' but death and
    destruction."
    Duke: "Not destruction, justice."
    Cmdr: "I'll take no responsibility for your actions. Your on
    your own! Behave your self, damnit! You got that,
    soldger?"
    Duke: "I've always been on my own... Face it, it's ass kickin' time,
    SIR!"
    Cmdr: "Get outta here...!"
    (Duke gives the Cmdr a hard stair, then cocks his weapon and
    walks out of the room)
    Cmdr: In a wisper: "Good luck, my friend."

    (Cut to a scene where aliens are injecting genetic material
    into an unconcious subject)

    Programming: ( the functions I need )
    Images: Polys
    Actors:
    Multi-Object sections for change (head,arms,legs,torsoe,all change)
    Facial expressions. Pal lookup per poly?

    int *idata;
    struct imagetype *prev, *next;
    }

    Yeah, I noticed that too... Sounds very intriguing. It amazes me that someone who spells seeps "seaps" can code so well :)

    But, I want BLOOD. That's the best build game there was.

    Heh, cool, I guess. Though it would've been better if the Duk3D source had been released years ago.
