Duke Nukem 3D is one of the classic 3D shooter games – and is the game that most people think of when they hear ‘Duke Nukem’. I can personally remember getting together with friends at LAN parties and playing Duke Nukem 3D marathons – where the first person to 500 frags was the winner.
Duke Nukem 3D does run under Virtual PC – however it doesn’t run very well. The reason for this is that Duke Nukem 3D uses a customer video display routine with self modifying code. This is very hard to handle under Virtual PC.
Having said that – Duke Nukem 3D is quite playable under Virtual PC on my Dual AMD 246 computer:
You may need to use the ‘-‘ key to shrink the display in order to get better performance out of Duke Nukem 3D. If you are interested you can download the shareware version from here: ftp://ftp.3drealms.com/share/3dduke13.zip
Which finishes up my series on Duke Nukem for now – hopefully by the time Duke Nukem Forever gets released – we will have 3D support so that we can run it 🙂
