Duke Nukem 3DDuke Nukem 3D

Duke Nukem 3D - cult computer game in a genre of first-person shooter created in 1996.
It brought the game industry as many innovations and unexpected decisions, which by right may challenge the title of the forefather of many modern shooters, including a series of games of Half-Life.

Duke Nukem - special agent of the U.S. government, brutal and mocking action hero (appearance reminding Dolph Lundgren in the course of action can joke and even perepisyvatsya with the player), returns to Los Angeles. Suddenly the radio receives a distress signal: city storming previously unknown enemy - aggressive alien race, who arrived with the purpose of abduction of women and use their bodies as incubator. Space ship Duke strays missile, but he managed to catapult onto the roof of the house. He takes up arms and starts the slaughter, sweeping away the mountains of aliens on the way to their leaders. Each episode has its own peculiarity in the plot.

Installation into Linux Mint/Pinguy OS or others Ubuntu distrs:
1. Install the repository
echo -e "deb http://apt.duke4.net quantal main\n\
deb-src http://apt.duke4.net quantal main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eduke32.list
2. Add keys verification
wget -q http://apt.duke4.net/key/eduke32.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
3. Update the cache and install the game
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install eduke32
4. Download master file to run the game in the folder options in the game 
cd ~/ && mkdir .eduke32 && cd ~/.eduke32 && wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/t2najdhqlxv38rj/DUKE3D.GRP
You can now run the game from the menu.
5. But I advise before you start, install High Resolution Pack. Additionally 800 megabytes
cd ~/.eduke32 && wget http://www.duke4.org/files/nightfright/hrp/duke3d_hrp.zip unzip duke3d_hrp.zip && rm duke3d_hrp.zip
That's all. Enjoy! Personally I was pleased to recall youth)))

Thank you, for this. I tried this installation method, then tried running the game and it works great! It's much better than running the Windows version through WINE. I tried running that one, with the Hi-res pack installed (prior to finding out there's a Linux version) and I always had a flickering picture. No flickering with this one, though. It's perfect! Thanks, again!
