Duke Nuken 3D missing text fix when using High-res packs

June 7, 2011

I fired up my enhanced version of Duke Nuken 3D from http://www.gog.com again tonight and noticed I had no text in the text blocks. The problem apparently had to do with the use of high-res pack. However, a quick search found a simple fix. Merely enter the game console by entering the ~ key inside the game. Then type in r_texturemode 0 and hit enter. Then hit escape. The text blocks work great and the fix stayed when I started up the game again.

The fix was found here at Gog.com: http://www.gog.com/en/forum/duke_nukem_series/duke_nukem_3d_mods

It is free at http://www.gog.com and they toss in a lot of nice extras. This 1994 point-and-click adventure game comes rapped in SCUMMVM, so it plays nice on XP and VISTA machines.

While you are at http://www.gog.com, look at the growing collection of classic games at great prices. Best of all, they get them to work with modern operating systems.

I was rusty at point-and-click games, but am finding it a fun retro experience. True, the graphics are primitive. But, the script has some laugh out loud funny lines and the story is starting to suck me in.
