NOTE: all these files are intended for use on a PC. The demo does not need to be installed, just extract the files into a new directory. The utilities work on the full PC version of Duke Nukem Forever. No demos or utilities exist for the console versions of Duke Nukem Forever.
Description:THE DEMO OF DUKE NUKEM FOREVER that was released on June 3, 2011. Format: RAR (split in two files). The archive is protected by the password t3h_f4t_dud3_L13D Size: 1.21 GB Instructions: what you are downloading is not a pair of archives containing different files. It is a single archive, split in two. So:
Double-click on either of the two files, enter the password and extract the content into the directory you want. At the end, DO NOT do the same with the other file, because you already extracted the whole demo from both files.
In the newly created directory, you will find a new .rar file called Dukenukemcrack.rar. Double-click on it and extract the content into the same directory you created for the demo.
You will find a new subdirectory, called Dukenukemcrack. Inside, there are three files. You must cut them, reach the System subdirectory and paste them.
You can now launch the demo, by double clicking the DukeForeverDemo.exe executable.
In the shortcut properties to the Duke game, add this to the path of the game in the target box: -log
It should look like this: "X:\Path\DukeForeverDemo.exe" -log
Note: You can create the shortcut to this file yourself if needed.
Open the game with this shortcut.
Press the Windows Key or ALT+Tab to move out of the game and to the console window.
In the console window, enter this command: set UWindow.WindowConsole ConsoleKey 192
After you’ve entered the command, quit/exit the game.
Now, start the game without the shortcut, or after removing -log from the shortcut.
While the game is running, press the ~ key, which is usually located at the top left of the keyboard.
