Duke Nukem Wiki

Murder: The EDF Conspiracy is a total conversion for Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition. It was created by UTAF Productions and released on September 25th, 1998. It contains new levels, new music, new enemies, new weapons, new items, and new sound effects.

To play the mod with a source port, such as EDuke32, you must do one of the following methods:

Method 1. Double click on the "MURDER" application (it is a .bat file), then left click and drag the "MGAME.CON" file into the source port's main .exe; put the custom game content directory settings on the "murder" setting.

Method 2.

1. After unzipping the mod's folder (murder), right click on the the "MURDER" application (it is a .bat file), then choose edit. You will see this text appear:

duke3d /xmgame.con /gmurder.grp

Edit the text so that it displays:

eduke32.exe /xmgame.con /gmurder.grp

This will allow it to access EDuke32.exe. Save the modified MURDER.bat file after editing it.

2. Copy and paste the unzipped murder folder into your EDuke32 folder, then copy and paste all of the mod's files from inside of the murder folder into your EDuke32 folder.

3. Run MURDER.bat from inside your EDuke32 folder with the custom game content directory settings on the "murder" option.

Both methods will allow the mod to work with EDuke32 and function in the same manner, though the latter allows the user to play the mod without having to drag the "MGAME.CON" file into EDuke32.exe each time.
