This 3D FPS game plays well on high-end Classic Amigas. It is a world-known first-person shooter video game developed by 3D Realms back in 1996. Duke Nukem 3D is as known as Doom and Quake. It came in an era when PC users started to spread that Amiga computers cant do 3D FPS even they were all wrong saying so.
AmiDuke Update Is Here
This is a Classic Amiga port of Duke Nukem 3D based on the old Atari/Amiga ports with some newer features from Chocolate Duke added for extra flavor. To make it run on Amiga you need the data files. You can download it from GOG even here that got a list of where to get the game data files.
The Duke Nukem 3D data files (must be the PC Atomic version) must be purchased. The Shareware version of the game can also be downloaded. AmiDuke is in the same situation as AmiDoom where you need the original data files to be able to play the game. The data files can be used on several systems, including Classic Amiga.
Requirements for AmiDuke
- AGA Amiga
- 68060 + FPU
- 16 MB of RAM
- AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
Using SFS or PFS3 is recommended use as filesystems. I also would recommend getting AmigaOS 3.2.1 as it speeds up 3D FPS games in general. I’ve noticed this a lot on my Amiga 1200 68060 100MHz. The jump from AmigaOS 3.1.4 to AmigaOS 3.2 was bigger than expected when testing various 3D FPS games. I would also recommend using a Compact Flash mem card. It is much faster than a spinning hard drive.
Happy shooting!… on your Classic Amiga!
