New 68k Duke Nukem Project (AGA/RTG)
« on: December 30, 2013, 11:05:26 PM »
I'm currently hacking together a 68k SDL port using the extremely talented Fabien Sanglard's update of the original DOS port called Chocolate Duke

First public (and very buggy) BETA is in the Zone over on EAB, still lots of work to do to get this running properly on real Classic machines (060 AGA & 040 RTG targets, 030 would be too slow to bother with).

I don't normally release BETA's this early in development but thought some people might like to follow the project as I fix things up and improve the speed (hopefully).

This is just a part time hobby project for me so don't expect it to be finished anytime soon.

You will do great job as always, I don't have an 060 only 030 50, 040,25(PPC)

Crack Monkey my dear Watson, Crack Monkey!

Man when I get my 1200's up and running again (stable like), I'm going to be busy busy busy with all your recent releases, ESPECIALLY ZDOOM!

I say we start a kickstarter to buy Novacoder one of those composite-to-usb recording dongles so we can actually see the game being played instead of like we're standing across the room from his Amiga ;)

Haha, I thought he was recording them like this on purpose, so people could see it was being played on a real Amiga?  ;)

Shush, don't tell people that it's actually running on my Micro PC.

multiplayer support please ;-)
I know you removed this part from your other ports but multiplayer (coop) is also part of the fun in these FPS !

I kinda like that, makes me feel like I'm there. :)

More great work from novacoder, my amiga porting hero!

But I'd contribute for this if anyone wants to take up a collection for him.

Sorry but adding multiplayer support is a lot of effort and will hardly be used by anyone anyway.

Project update:

1) Fixed the mouse look issues
2) Fixed the menu animation issues
3) Small performance increases

I've discovered that this build isn't 'endian clean', this is a pain and explains some of the issues that I'm having.  I've got the old Amiga 68k source code so I'm doing a comparison to find out what I need to update.

Biggest problem I'm currently having is screen corruption when running full screen, not sure what's causing it but it's starting to piss me off.


I also got a bit distracted by Odamex ;)

Atari 68k version might be helpfull? http://mikro.naprvyraz.sk/download.htm

At least text gives picture that it could be better optimized.

Not that you don't need free look with nuke 3d, if enemy is up / down and thats why not a visible it is still a possible shoot them just pointing right direction.

Yes thanks, I have that source :)

This port is proving a bit tricky, hopefully I can fix up these problems and get it working properly.

Fascinating. I also started with some work on duke3d, based on a merged version of my amiga port back from 2003 and the last update from icculus. at least i don't have any endian issues, because i had removed them already back in 2003.... was the most work, took me weeks as far i remember.
netherless, wish you all the best for your port, and if your port is really playable on AGA, than i can stop working on it... ;)
