Not exactly a launcher in the conventional sense, or even primarily Duke related but absolutely essential if you want to get Duke Nukem 1 & 2 up and running on your high-end machine. This is the x86 Windows installer, see the DOSBox Homepage for other platforms.

A reasonably powerful Duke3D loader for Win95+, organise your .art and .map files effectively. It's got nothing over DukeRoch though.

Level Editors/Viewers

GL Build
by Matt Hildred
Downloads: 476

Open and edit Duke maps using OpenGL - quite interesting really but nothing like the real thing [g]. The program uses a different key set to the default Build ones, so be sure to read the archived text file. It appears the program is no longer supported.

An alternative to Build and Mapster, no guarantees it'll work on your system - try it out if you're curious.

Downloads: 587

A modified version of Build with more features; allows better level fine-tuning and has a whole new colour scheme. This is here for archival purposes only, chances are you'll be looking for Mapster32, which is included in the EDuke32 source port.

Yet another Build editor, thanks to Devastator for sending this one in. May or may not work, depending on how hard you try.

Possibly the best (certainly the most promising) GRP file manipulator out there, with a long list of great features. Extract, delete, add and view files in the GRP file - including browsing individual art tiles. Worth a look!

CPU Duke Match

Play against the computer with bots, doesn't work with the Atomic version however (I believe). Certainly not with JonoF's port, at least. Worth checking out if you're a 1.3d-er.
