Widescreen resolution[edit]

The Steam version supports custom resolutions in the launcher. Use these steps for non-Steam versions.
Set resolution and FOV in config.cfg[6]
  1. If the game is showing the launcher on startup, check the box to skip it then run the game and exit.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\duke\base
  3. Edit config.cfg
  4. Change uset r_mode to the resolution you want.
  5. Add the line uset g_cam_fov "90" with the horizontal FOV you want (default is 50).
  6. Save your changes and close the file.
  7. Make the file read-only (this prevents the FOV line being removed when you exit the game).

Notes

The HUD and all other 2D elements are stretched from 4:3.

Notes

  1. SafeDisc retail DRM does not work on Windows 10[2] and is disabled by default on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 when the KB3086255 update is installed.[3]
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/240200/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (240200) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
