Great find OP heat!

That line was taken from this film, although it's much improved in Duke Nukem, it's a bit over wordy and poorly delivered in They Live, but I think that was the point >

Poorly delivered?
Ahhh, memories! Thanks for the nostalgia OP. I remember this origianlly in, 1996 was it? I had the 'shareware' version on CD. Played it to death! I think I ended up duping my dear old Nan into buying it for me, the same as GTA, from HMV because they were both 18's. I would have been about 13 at time. My own money, obviously.

I also remember waiting 'forever' (like what I did there?) for the sequel. The less said about that the better though!

I'll leave you with this:

The line is modified in Duke Nukem and has a punch to it. In They Live the line falls flat if you compare it to the Duke Nukem version because it contains more words and the delivery is very different.
Glad i grabbed the Megaton edition back in the day before they removed it, but if this is all you can get now then for that money it's a no brainer.

That's your opinion mate. Not mine. Not even a contest in my opinion. And i love both TL and DN3D.

OK seems I'll have to explain. The film They Live is a cult classic I like it and the line works in that film because of what the protagonist has discovered by wearing the glasses and it is delivered how it's meant to be delivered. If you merely compare that line to how it was reworded in Duke Nukem then the line seems a disappointment in They Live. The line works in both media but doesn't work by comparison. You getting me now?

I managed to offer the money to a different source... 39769476-Qyktn.jpg
One small advantage this has over the Megaton edition, is the addition of an Official 5th set of levels created by the original designers, the World Tour of the title.
I remember reading just after its release, and how such an anticipated game could be such a shadow of its former self. How the game had been pimped from dev team to dev team, and how one dev said '' the code should have been fired off into outer space''.
A travesty.

In case this confuses anyone else (and possibly you?), that's referring to Duke Nukem Forever. The worst sequel to anything ever made. Duke Nukem 3D was actually (for it's day) pretty good. Plus it had strippers in it, which obviously massively excited those of us who were 14 at the time bearing in mind we lived in an age starved of internet pornography.

World Tour is the best way to play DN3D, and can optionally be set up to play like the original DOS version if anyone wants a nostalgic experience.

Though I noticed it doesn't lock to 4:3 on my 16:9 monitor if you pick a 4:3 resolution, instead it stretches to fill. There's probably a fix using Custom Resolution Utility, but I've not tried due to prefering true widescreen resolutions (3840x2160) anyway. Anyone taking it that far should be using a 4:3 CRT for the truest experience anyway.

Have you checked that this isn't how your monitor treats a true 4:3 source?

I haven't delved into it because I'm happily playing it at 3840x2160 but I'm sure there's a workaround if I looked. In Radeon settings, "Scaling Mode" is set to "Preserve aspect ratio" so that won't be it.

Will be investing in a Display Port (or HDMI) to VGA converter at some point because I still have my Sony Trinitron CRT monitor from a circa-2002 PC build, would be nice to get it running again (if it still works) and see how new games and these reissues play on it. It's native 4:3, so as long as the CRT and the graphics card communicate correctly through the converter, the aspect ratio shouldn't be an issue.

It's pretty common for monitors to have a setting that overrides anything on the PC, e.g. on mine, I have "Full Wide" (widescreen no matter what resolution) and "Original" (preserves the ratio). I'd be willing to bet that's what's happening here.

Most of us had girlfriends at that age.
Duke Forever is a lot better game than it's reputation.

There, I said it.
