Task Description

As of r8551, while ALT is pressed, Duke moves into the opposite direction of the used right/left arrow key. ALT-mouse strafing is still OK.

I have attached the output log.

11Backend / CoreFeature RequestVery LowLow.FBX file supportDeferred
Task Description

This is a request for the fbx model format to be supported along side md3s.

This format has way more features such as skeletal animations and is more easily created by most 3D applications.

I believe supporting a more popular file format will encourage others to contribute to projects.

44Backend / CoreFeature RequestVery LowLow"actorsound" CON functionUnconfirmed
Task Description

Right now, EDuke32 has stopactorsound, and ifactorsound, but no actorsound function. I can think of many scenarios where it would not only be nice to stop other actors from playing sounds/check if they are playing a sound, but also make other actors start playing sounds.

This could be used to make Duke Talk play from the attacking player (without the need of flimsy, ugly hacks), instead of globally. It can also be used to make an enemy that uses a psychic attack that makes the target emit a high-pitched sound before causing it to explode, scanners-style. Or, it could be used to make items that cause the player picking it up to make a sound that’s audible to other players.

42Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowVery Low"Duke Talk" Sound block should be per-actor, not global...Unconfirmed
Task Description

Sounds with the Duke Talk bit enabled have a bit of code that blocks another Duke Talk sound from playing if any Duke Talk is already playing. This is normal, but there’s a bit of a bug/oversight with it. With the way it is now, in Multiplayer, only one player can play pain or death sounds at a time. If someone is being damaged, it’ll block other players from making noise. Same can happen in singleplayer if you have useractor that uses Duke Talk. What I suggest, is adding an additional check so it blocks on a per-actor basis, so only one sound can play per actor, and not one sound globally. This check wouldn’t apply if GlobalSound is being used, however, for obvious reasons.

34Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowLowaddons folderUnconfirmed
Task Description


actually I have two way to launch addons with eduke 32:

1) put all fikes (grp and maps) into the eduke32 main folder or in the config folder.
2) launch eduke32 with -j /full_path_to_folder_with_grp

Could you add another cleaner way please?

Like this one:

Eduke could search for an /addons folder located in his main folder (executable folder) or in his config folder (/home/username/.eduke32 for linux).

102Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowLowBacktrace DLLs fail to build on Win10/MSYS2Unconfirmed
Task Description

“make ebacktrace” fails on current Win10/MSYS2. And the DLLs shipped with EDuke32 are more than five years old, actually.

Fix (64bit):
> pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-expat mingw-w64-x86_64-gettext

Working command line (64bit):
> gcc -O2 -std=gnu99 -ggdb -shared -Wall -Wextra -static-libgcc -o ebacktrace1-64.dll platform/Windows/src/backtrace.c -I/mingw64/include/binutils/ -L/mingw64/lib/binutils/ -lbfd -liberty -limagehlp -lintl
(I’m using “-Og” instead of “-O2 -std=gnu99” locally)

Fixing the make files accordingly should be easy.

Task Description

-s command line parameter doesn’t seem to work, it doesn’t change the difficulty (skill) in settings.cfg; I can only change it via game menu by starting new game with the difficulty I want.
Also, if I launch the game with -s4 (Damn I’m Good, respawning enemies), then it doesn’t change the difficulty (in terms of enemies/objects placement) but enemies WILL respawn.

4Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowHighController IssuesUnconfirmed
Task Description

Using a gamepad results in odd behavior. There is always a tilt to Duke’s movements, or to put it another way there is no zero. Changing the sensitivity offsets this, but the sensitivity also reveals how out of balance it is. at 26% and below it leans to the left, and at 27% and above it leans to the right. It also appears to completely ignore the existence of the second stick, using it as four buttons rather than...well, a stick. Oddly, it still shows up as an axis in the joystick settings, though modifying it does nothing.

45Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowMediumController issues, againUnconfirmed
Task Description

Several issues with controllers:

- Double tap commands set by default cannot be unbound, even by editing the file settings with a text editor. This is a bug I noticed in 2010 AFAIK and that is still occurring in 2016!
- With an Xbox 360 controller, Axis 3 and 4 are respectively bound to Axis 0 and 1, meaning that two commands are bound to the same analog stick. Also, setting a correct sensitivity in order to not to have Duke spinning as hell is nearly impossible.

56Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowMediumEDuke32 does not obey NVidia Control Panel's Color Sett...Unconfirmed
Task Description

Basically, with my new laptop, the screen’s default color calibration is off from normal, and I don’t got the $ to try to gamble on replacing the screen with a better one, so I used NVidia Control Panel’s individual color settings to offset the colors [mostly the blue part] to more acceptable colors. Unfortunately, under normal circumstances, loading EDuke32/Mapster32 will force the old color calibration settings while running it [and only while the window is selected, as it will show the proper color calibration outside of it].

The only workaround I’ve come up with for this is to setting the in-game/engine Contrast to 0.0 in the console [”vid_contrast 0”] which somehow re-inforces my Control Panel Color settings over EDuke32, however this does weird things to the gamma setting in certain ranges [like between 0.85 and 1.17, the screen will be very faded out, while otherwise, the game is brighter than normal gamma and changing it has very little effect], so you don’t have as fine tuned control over it as you’d like, and brightness is completely uneditable when the contrast is 0 too.

Another issue is even if I do this in Mapster32, going into 2D mode always unsets the contrast in 2D mode and thus forces the original screen color calibration, forcing me to set the contrast to 0 for 2D mode each time. It also doesn’t seem to save the 3D mode contrast when I leave the program, so I have to reset it once for 3D mode each time I run Mapster32.

62Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowMediumEduke32 doesn't remember vsync on setting when starting...Unconfirmed
Task Description

When starting eduke32(with polymer HRP) and then start a saved game, the game will start with vsync off.
Though in the menu its on.
Turning vsync in the menu off and on again, will solve this problem.
This only happens when starting saved games, directly after eduke32 started.
With new games there is no problem.

In fact, eDuke32 has not compiled for me since revision 7078 (16 October 2018), though the source file that gives the error and the compiler message has changed since then. I attach a log of that as well in case that helps.

And it should not show up on each and every save/load action, but only on game startup.
Better message:

“Note: suppressing warnings about CON code in well-known FOOBAR.CON”

If possible, the check for missing sound files in USER.CON (see FS#79) should be moved to CON compile time. Then this can be handled like above.

So like how you have the general color settings for Brightness, Gamma and Contrast, is it possible to make these for Red, Green and Blue color channels too?

I posted a bug about my NVidia Control Panel’s settings not being recognized by EDuke32/Mapster32 unless the contrast is set to 0, but about possible idea to approach this is having Color-Channel based settings [similar to how the NVidia Control Panel does it].

29Backend / CoreBug ReportVery LowCriticalMac version Keeps CrashingUnconfirmed
Task Description

Dear EDuke32 Support,

I seem to have trouble playing EDuke32 on my MacBook Pro. I have the official GOG version and playing it by itself is okay but when I use EDuke32 the game would crash. This seems to only happen when I play the game the second time. The game screen turns black, my Mac makes this buzzing sound and nothing happens. I had no choice but to press the power button to restart my Mac.

The following are the details of my Mac (also attached is my System Report for your perusal):

OS X El Capitan (v 10.11.6)
MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011)
Processor: 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Startup Disk: Macintosh HD
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB

Several things I tried doing to solve the problem:

  1. I followed the EDuke32 wiki page and copied the DUKE.RTS and DUKE3D.GRP files (which I got from the PC version of Duke3D GOG) into the [Application Support –> EDuke32 folder]. It works but again it crashes on the second playthrough.
  2. I copied the EDuke32 app into the Duke 3D GOG app (Duke Nukem –> Show Package Contents –> Contents –> Resources) and once again, it only works on the first playthrough.

I used the OS X Lion version of EDuke32 (eduke32_osx-sdl2_lion_svn5811.dmg | The Jul 12 2016 version) to play the game. What am I doing wrong? Or is there an actual bug on the Mac version?

Appreciate if anyone can help identify the problem and provide a solution to it.

Hope to hear from you promptly.
