Playing addons and mods on EDuke3D is very simple, all you need is a .xml shortcut and the addon files.
Playing the official Addons
For this section I will assume you are using the Megaton Edition.
- Copy the addons folder from your Megaton Edition installation to your 3DS ( /3ds/EDuke3D <- addons )
- Create a .xml file to launch the addon you want, for this example I will call this file vacation.xml and it will launch vacation.grp
- Place the following content into the file create on the last step, tweaking it to your needs:
<shortcut> <name>Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach</name> <executable>/3ds/eduke3d/eduke3d.3dsx</executable> <arg>-g addons/vacation.grp</arg> </shortcut>
- Place that file on your /3ds folder, don’t place inside your EDuke3D folder ( /3ds <- vacation.xml )
Next time you open up the Homebrew Launcher there should be a new entry for the addon, launch it and have fun!
