Duke Nukem (AKiMW Hack)

I'm glad to announce my new project: Duke Nukem (now Tibone & Calindro are also working on this).

It's a hack of Alek Kidd in Miracle World made with KiddEd.



Playable demo is available here: http://www.cartmodding-sega8bit.com/dukenukem/

Don't hesitate to comment and report any bug you can see.

Enjoy!

Okay this is awesome. I haven't played DK1 since I was a kid in the 90s. Are you recreating the original levels?

I need to finish up some computer work here in the next couple months so I can get on with my hacking with Calindro's ZillionEd finally.

Really nice and creative use of Calindro's tech!
Got stuck at the end of the YEAH screen I assume it's the end of the demo. Some of the jumping is really too hard (I used savestate). Can't wait to see Duke on his motorbike

Added.

-Pause screen: Radio and little Duke problems, no arrow for selecting the weapon, some number display grey.

I think you know what's the problem there?

Revo wrote
-Title Screen: After Game Over a brown and grey ''P'' display for one sec.

It's the tile you've selected in the Nametable Editor for Title Screen Bottom Left Box. It's the 4th tile from left in the line before the last line.

Revo wrote
-Sound of death only work the first time.

Actually it doesn't work when the jump sound is playing. Your jump sound occupies all channels and silences them (You can also notice it when you jump while the music plays on the noise channel). I can help you fix it.

Revo wrote
-Sometimes after a death around the end of the level, the game stay on a black screen (Probably need the help of Calindro for this one).

That's a bug of the game itself. The function that calculates where to respawn fails when the bottom of the current screen is too low. It needs at least 2 rows at the bottom. So you can avoid the bug by adding a 2nd row of floor tiles.
I'll look into it to come up with a solution to this issue.

@olaf: Can't recreate original level 'cause the maps is too big. But I'm using most of the tile from the original game.

@Bock: YEAH is the end of the demo. Thank you for adding the game on the homebrew section. It's maybe more appropriate to put it on the game modifications section (like AK in RR).

@Calindro: For the arrow in pause screen I would like to be able to delete the one showing the map and keeping the one showing weapon (for now I just deleted the arrow tile). Is that possible?

The radio is not aligned but the bag of coins in the original game ether, strange that the developer didn't fix this bug.

For the colors problem, it's should not be hard to fix.


I will try to update the demo today as Calindro gave me solutions for the sound problem, the ''P'' in title screen and the respawn problem.

The size of the level shouldn't be the problem. You can have up to 79 screens per level. The actual problem is that Duke Nukem allows scrolling in all directions, that's not supported by the engine of AKiMW.

Yes, I've added a hack for that. :)

They have 2 versions of the big bag tiles.
One of them is part of the compressed tileset that also contains the clouds. This one is meant to be used for nametables because its tiles need to be mirrored to make up the whole bag.
The other version is uncompressed and is part of the sprite tiles. This one is meant to be used for sprites. The sprite tiles that make up the bag sprite are already misaligned in the sprite descriptor but the tiles make up for the misalignment.
In the pause screen they load the sprite version of the bag (which is misaligned) but they can't make up for the misalignment in the nametable.

So the simplest thing you can do to solve it is aligning the sprite tiles in the Sprite Editor: Right click the frame in the framelist to open the Tile Editor (Before the editor opens KiddEd will ask you if you want to align the sprite tiles first - click yes). In the Tile Editor deselect both bottom tiles (because they are already aligned correctly) then press CTRL+Rightarrow to move the selected tiles to the right by 1 pixel.

Demo updated on the link of the first post.

With the help of Calindro all bug cited yesterday are fixed and the rom size is now 256ko instead of 1mo.

I think I can start working on level 2 now :D

I wasn't seeing this coming. It's a very interesting hack although I don't see the Alex Kidd in Miracle World engine to be well suited for this kind of game. For example, you should make Duke able to shoot all time instead of "punching" (I know the powerup which is Alex Kidd's shooting ability, I mean as a default attack).

I know it's a placeholder, but I liked the fact that you used Battletoads' Surf City music for the title screen.

Duke's legs look really funky when you move him to the left. Looks like there's a frame in there that should be flipped horizontally. Cool hack, though.

Wow - great work! It really feels like a completely new game already.

I also experienced the flipped legs when moving left, and when Duke shoots, his sprite moves 1 pixel down and stays there?

Haha - nice Duke Nukem style pause/item screen. I'm sure he would personally approve :)

Hey Revo,

the radio is now misaligned everywhere. It seems like you forgot the following step:

Then you should have only 20 games (or so) in your collection and of course no GG2SMS conversion ;)

Yesterday I had only few minutes to try the demo on real hardware (I had no access to a real SMS for 2 months) and I only found a SMS in 50Hz.

The game is way better when you have a full screen and musics in 50Hz are not as good as in 60Hz; but the game is more easy, that can be good for children but anyway this game is not recommended for children at all.

Yeah I know about your opinion regarding the 50Hz/60Hz thing ;D
Some people play in 50Hz, others in 60. Some people can never be convinced for 60Hz and that must be accepted ;)

If it plays well enough on 50Hz, I am still interested. No matter if the difficulty is easy or not =D I like your little creation a lot dude, you completely changed everything with that editor and nothing remembers me to Alex Kidd anymore, except the bike maybe =D

Great game! Nice to have such great ports. Perhaps eventually we can get more apogee stuff.

Great Music! I like how it has Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem 2 music in it. Nice mix. However can we also have a sound-only choice in the options? MS-DOS version had sounds only so it'll be nice to have this option (I'd play the game with both of course as the music is great! It would be more for nostalgia)

And can we have cheats? Not enough homebrews have cheats :D

Keep up the good work!

SFX only is probably possible, Calindro will be able to answer you. If you want I can do a version of the rom without music but of course it's would be better to have an option on the title screen.

You can already cheat on Duke Nukem with Action Replay codes and Game Genie codes of AKiMW. Like this guy: (btw I think this is the guy sending spam here about GG2SMS conversion). I don't see the point of doing that, the guy use a cheat every 2sec and playing pretty bad.

There will be no other cheat possible in the final version of the game, you will understand why soon when I will start the first pre-order in January.

Yes, it's possible. What kind of interface would you like to have for that? Something like "press 1 to start with sound, press 2 to start without sound"? Or an option in the pause screen so it can always be changed as preferred during gameplay?
@Tycho But why do you want to disable this awesome music? For nostalgia reasons?

An option on the pause screen should be better I think. It's would be cool to have an option to swap button 1 & 2 also.

Seems like you didn't get my last 2 mail?

Hey guys, glad you like the music. I tried my best to keep it sounding good and interesting and still Duke related.
The inclusion of the Duke3D theme was an easy choice, since it's such an iconic song.
But since the game is more based on Duke 1 and 2, i decided to do a throwback to the very good soundtrack by Bobby Prince.

And i tried to capture the style of the game with the original songs.

There'll be a VGM pack after the game is available.

It looks damn awesome Revó.

I know it´s the perfect Master System cover, but using the Sega logo seems to be risky. To use the name Duke Nukem is risky enough, but Sega could be very cranky if they discover that.

I like this cover as it is, but maybe it´s safer to do it like Playgen and Aypok did with the Digger Chan cover?

Done. But I uploaded some images with wrong names and couldn't find them to rename them so I just uploaded the images again with the correct names. Maybe you can take a look?

@Calindro Hi, I just found out about your editor, I was wondering, is there a setting in the editor for making Alex shoot all the time or is that something you hacked specially for Rove's mod?

If it was done specially for Rove I think it would be cool to add that into the editor. I think it would open it up to make more mods.
