Regarding Duke3d and Plutonium

Postby Quake161 » 2018-8-10 @ 05:07

Yes yes, another one. I've went through all the forums here looking for a work around and haven't found a proper solution.

Lets first get these out of the way:
-No access to a VPC
-Running windows 7
-Running Dosbox 0.74
-Own both the original Duke3d disc and the Plutonium disc.

Once I have installed Duke in dosbox, I proceeded to try the Plutonium disc and update the game.
It stated that "The patch had failed, please reinstall" message. I then found the PPack15 on 3drealms' site. Tried again, same result.
Came onto the forum to try the timestamp issue. I did get the computer and dosbox to install all the files using the "1996 13:40" time and date.
Verified it though both dosbox and the windows explorer.
Tried installing the patch, Same result.

At this point I'm just disappointed. Is there something I'm missing/applying wrong?

I assume you used the "1996-04-19 13:30:00" date for the timestamp issue? Because you wrote "1996 13:40".

:happy:

You could try the Daum DOSBox version which seems to have timestamp support.

Please be aware that Daum is old, unsupported, and has lots of bugs. YMMV.

Usually not a good idea to recommend Daum. It is broken and as noted, it is completely unsupported, so if there are issues you are on your own.

I waded thru this headache myself and said heck with it and ordered the Atomic edition (has all updates/add ons built in) off ebay, worked fine with my XP rig running Dosbox/D-fend Reloaded.
