Duke Nukem 3D HQ sound replacement
compiled by CeeJay
23.5M The goal of which is to replace all Duke Nukem 3D (Atomic Edition) sound effects and Duke talk with either perfect matches or suitable replacements of higher quality than the originals. This is an on-going project and as such is yet incomplete and not perfect. I know the Jetpack sounds are a bit lousy and some of the looping sounds are a little too lengthy...

DN13PAT - Duke 3D v 1.3d TC Patch
Ben Smit
190 This program enables Duke3d version 1.3 users to design their Total Conversion's and Addons so as to include:
-new Episode
-Skill names.
-Some of the more popular Cheat codes can also be changed to whatever you like.
(never before done, until now...Some features similar to what the Atomic edition has in its cons)



TooL13 v1
1.08M A DUKE NUKEM 3D v1.3D total conversion installation util.
Tool13 will modify duke3d.exe using an ini file for instructions.
Some variables that can be changed;
-con rename
-grp rename
-episode rename
-skill rename
-Global sound change
-uses script input
Similar to Dn13pat util above by Ben Smit, but better.



Duke 3d 1.3d Global snd modifier
11 -modifies the three global snds in duke3d.exe

Sounds 9, 14, & 17 are built in global sounds. (rpg explode, pipe explode, & laser trip explode) So you can replace those sounds to have your own global sounds. The problem is, when an RPG explodes the sound is activated internally. To have exclusive control over a global sound you need to change the flags in the exe. (or at least that's the only way I have found) In duke3d.exe I found a 9, 14 & 17 that when changed, the new sounds are global. The d3dg.exe will modify those numbers in duke3d.exe.

base# is 0-253, it and the next 2 sequential numbers are used.
Normal Restores the standard numbers.
Status Look only.
# is 0-255, Manual setup



EXEPatch v1.20
Photon Man
30.7 Universal file patcher (designed for executables) Used to patch BUILD Game EXE's, you must know where to patch of course. Includes data for Duke3d.



OTHER MISC PATCHES - These are generally patches that are not directly related to updating the game.
Compiled by perkristian
7.10M hi-res Duke Nukem 3D sounds. I've "only" found 55 sounds, so it's far from a complete pack. Still though; it's fun to listen to better versions of these classic sounds, like "mice3", "glass" and of course "squish" :-P



Duke-It-Out-In-D.C. Patch v1.01

Converting Build v1.3 to v1.4
Ben Smit
11 If you already have Build vers 1.4 you can still use Bpatch to patch your Build so to execute in any directory you wish. The same goes for - if you only have Duke v1.3. I guess this patch allows build 1.3 to be used with 1.4 maps aswell. Note: This is not 100% conversion(read enclosed text)
