Id start off by dropping the screenmode to 320x240 and dropping the AHI frequency down to 11025Hz and mono....

Try playing it on a PC, its native platform.  I have Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem Atomic v1.5 for the PC computer.  I play it at full speed, 30+ FPS at 800 X 600 resolution on the Kali Game Server EVERY DAY!  If you have the PC version, come play me.  I have created over 36 maps for the game.  Each map took me about 2 months to draw.  They are some of the best maps available for Duke Nukem.  You can get them all from me when you visit me at Kali.  My Kali user name is DoomMaster, FLY, @Jasper~, or MrDongZilla.     :-D

Is there anything you arent best in?? You sure seem to be best at bragging about your "knowledge" atleast.

That's six years of mapping by my reckoning... Hmmm.

 :-?

As a side-note Doomy, if you compile a program for another platform, it is now native to that platform... That's what porting is for. There's nothing special about the PC hardware other than brute force and popularity.

Don't know what to tell you about cyber patcher. I runs quite fine on my Amithlon box.  :-D  Of course, that's a 1.4 Mhz machine.

One thing you should def try is lower the sound and go into the options menu and set the screen detail to low. That will help a bit, not sure how much though.

Also remember that the current version is .3. Don't expect too much from that. Dante's got alot of paying work to do, so anything he does for Duke is in his spare time.

I can't really see why you're getting such sour frame rates, though, especially with a Voodoo AND an 060...wish I could help you more. :-(

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good speed by using CyberPatcher.

Although, it is alot to got through just to get a better framerate, switching to MuLib's MuRedox (after installing MuLib libraries) made the game far more playable.

I would recommend installing blizkick for all 060 owners. It definitely boosts everything (quake and doom) if well configured.

I think that Duke Nukem was great and worked very well indeed in my setup. I got around 20fps on the 68k version and around 30fps on the Warp version! :-) Very nice indeed!
