This is an old Shareware that I've add to the site.
It has 5 sections (Floppy Disk Release) in it that eventually expand to be Duke Nukem Shareware v1.3D.

Try it out in the DosBox emulator, if you do not have this game yet (5.63Megs): DUKE13DSW.7z

I was wondering is it possible to made a new levels. mods or TC for the shareware version of the Duke Nukem 3D.
But license for the shareware clearly says that you can't. Also game executable in comparison with the retail version never loads anything from the game folder - only from the DUKE3D.GRP file. So you probably can't change anything without editing group file itself, but its modification (surprise) was also prohibited by the license. Anyway here some hacks I did for the shareware, not sure if anyone will need this. And using these hacks also breaks license terms.

DUKE3D.EXE Shareware v1.3D

Disable two advertisement screen before quit
00077900: 74 EB

Disable "Unregistered Shareware" in game
00082596: 75 EB

Disable "Unregistered Shareware" in demo
00082E01: 75 EB

Disable "Press F1 for Help" text when start new game
000AF568: 75 EB

Disable DUKE3D.CFG Misc/Executions counter (always 0)
000B8999: 46 90
000B899F: 89 31

I recall some shareware made thingies. CON files (small modifications) sometimes with art and sound where made for the shareware version when it came out.
