The game was changed a lot after 2004. This is basically a very early beta version that would be interesting to people who followed the game from the beginning and were disappointed when a lot of things were removed over the years.

So does this make the game have a larger streaming world with vehicles like it was originally intended?

Thinking of how buggy this game must be gives me nightmares...

what I can't believe is they still didn't get this left out stuff in with the 2nd game :thumbdwn:

I've still got all these old builds (there were a few), and none of them are more than about 300mb. Why this is 1.4gb, I don't know. I get the impression they probably gussied it up quite a bit to make it seem a little better, because the old betas were dead**** poor, crash prone, and extremely lacking in any original content (they used Counter Strike and Quake 3 sounds).

Exactly the same thought entered my head, the amount of bugs in the final release was just silly. I wouldn't even like to imagine how many bugs a pre release alpha would have. xD

I hope if Duke Nukem Forever is released some day (note I said if, and not when), they include as a bonus different game builds they have been working on, like the one powered by Quake engine.

What a great idea, we could think of this as a boxed set, with say 5-7 DVDs each containing the different builds across all those engines they switched.

Just wondering, anyone who has finished downloading this, would you mind hosting a torrent with all the parts included? That'd solve the download speed and having to click each one -_-

edit: the fileshack download is pretty good.

I got side tracked yesterday so I just got back to this and am downloading the last part now. For some reason the main URL didn't work for me at the time but it's working now, maybe they took it off-line for a while. Anyway I'm downloading it now, Thanks.

Meh this wasnt anything fun now, i dont really see the point releasing it now. its just lame that all the good stuff they removed for the fullgame :( Perhaps its more interesting for modders that maybe wanna port some cut out maps etc for the game cause it was very buggy, u always start with a lame pistol and knife only.. wiht hundreds of animals and guards.

Delete the savedgames folder and run "run_alife_s.bat".
