The Mighty… Duke Nukem !!


Duke Nukem 3D

This is more than a game, it’s a “chef-d’oeuvre” !!! Here’s some quotes:
*Your face. Your ass. What’s the difference?
*What are you waiting for? Christmas?

*It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I’m all out of gum
*You’re an inspiration for birth control.
*[after stepping in alien feces] Shit Happens…

* My name is Duke Nukem! After a few days of R&R I’ll be ready for more action!
* No one steals our chicks… and lives!
* Sir Duke kicketh much ass.
* So help me Duke!
* Your ass is grass, and I’ve got the weedwacker.

Now, I’m waiting for Duke Nukem Forever (since 1997)…


DarkRadiant under Fedora 10

From the DarkRadiant site (

DarkRadiant is a customised version basing on GtkRadiant designed for use with the upcoming Dark Mod (, a Thief-inspired modification of the Doom 3 game engine.

It’s like GtkRadiant, but with nicer features

First of all, you must have Doom3 installed !! I don’t think it will work properly with Quake4 (missing dmap command, the map compiler) and I have it with other assets and it’s  working like a charm !

To copmile DarkRadiant under Fedora 10, we’ll need the folowing tools and libraries installed:

“subversion”(svn), “gcc”, “gcc-c++” (g++)

“boost-devel”, “gtk2-devel”, “glew-devel”, “gtkglext-devel”, “libxml2-devel”, “freealut-devel” and “libvorbis-devel” (ooof !)

For yum users, just copy and execute this: “yum -y install subversion gcc gcc-c++ boost-devel gtk2-devel glew-devel gtkglext-devel libxml2-devel freealut-devel libvorbis-devel”

Now, it’s time to compile !!

Open a terminal, my working directory is “/home/duke/Public”, you can use any directory, you must just have writing permission

“svn co DarkRadiant” and wait for all the files to be copied

Now, “cd DarkRadiant”, you can check for updates using “svn up”

To compile it, follow the steps:

1- Run “./configure”, if you want to enable the DarkMod plugins, use: “./configure –enable-darkmod-plugins”

2- Type “make”, so it will get compiled.

3- Installation: login as root by typing “su”, enter the root password when needed, then, enter “make install”

Note: if you don’t have root access, or wish to install DarkRadiant on another directory, add this option to the “./configure”, –prefix=YOUR_DIRECTORY , for example, if I want to install DarkRadinat under /home/duke/Public: “./configure –prefix=/home/duke/Public”

Now, after the compilation process is a success, launch darkradiant simply by typing “darkradiant” on a terinal ! The first time, it it complains about a missing directory, choose “No” or input nothing in the “Game Mod (fs_base)” field if you want to use only the “base” dir. if you want to use your own mod assets, create a new folder under “/usr/local/games/doom3” called “my_mod” or whatever you want, then, create a zip file containing an empty directory “script”, and rename this to file.pk4.

Nice Mapping 🙂
