Just to let you know:

http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/duke-n ... 95561?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

Duke Nukem 3D for iPad/iPhone is free, for a limited time offer. Once downloaded, the .ipa archive can be extracted with 7zip. I have tried placing the resulting contents of Duke3D.app directory into Icaros' Extras:Games/Duke3D folder to see if bszili's port of Duke3Dw could use them directly, but got no other result than mess the working shareware episode. Maybe someone with better knowledge of the internals of the game will be able to make it work on AROS too.

In this case, please share the needed configuration... ;)

You only need Duke3d.grp and the *.con files (which Duke3dw extracts from the grp, if not present). I'll download this, and see what's inside :)

I'm sorry to say, but these data files are not usable. I peeked into the GRP, and it lacks all the music and sound effects. It also has less textures, it probably doesn't have the 4th episode of Plutonium Pak/Atomic Edition.

Edit: I found the sounds in the audio folder (duh!), as wav files. What's the deal with that? Well, if they wanted to prevent people from using the datafiles with source ports by butchering the GRP file, then they have succeeded.
