    Ive always had <3 for good ol' Duke Nukem. I had kept the DS port on my card for literally years, but that sukka is damn FAR from being truly playable. With the release of DS2Linux, one of the first things I tried out was eDuke32, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it runs on the DStwo. Good enough I thought it should be shared.
    While I haven't had any problems (except the audio tends to quit working after a bit on the atomic edition), I gotta say the obligatory Use At Your Own Risk.

    So, for all pleasure in it, this here is the eDuke32 Dingux port set up to auto-boot on the DS2Linux beta. No fussing with the d-menu GUI to navigate, DN3D just boots when you run the plug. In fact, it doesn't even use d-menu, so it may be better about not corrupting *SD cards.

    This was made with JUST the basic/needed files for DS2Linux, and a simple edit of LOCAL/sbin/MAIN. Drop the contents of the download to the root of your SD. Fire up your DSTwo, run the Duke3D_Linux.plg (<-merely a renamed dstwoLinux.plg) and get ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum, unless you happen to all be out of gum.

    Note: there is a drawback/issue if you already have DS2Linux Beta1.0 on you DSTwo. This auto-run method changes the DS2Linux boot path, so the regular z4/z5/whatev CAN NOT be used at the same time as this duke auto-boot.
    *DS2Linux won't run on a SD formatted with the Panasonic tool.

    Try it out!
    What are you waiting for, ..Christmas?

    $(zip)/Duke3D_Linux.plg -> $(card)/_dstwoplug/Duke3D_Linux.plg
    $(zip)/rootfs -> $(card)/rootfs
    $(zip)/zImage_DS2 -> $(card)/zImage_DS2
    $(zip)/LOCAL -> $(card)/LOCAL

    Not sure what to do about the box art images.

    hrm, maybe it's an SD format problem. DS2Linux doesnt like the way Panasonic formatter handles files, I used Partition Wizard to format my SD card.
    The contents are meant to be dropped at the root (the .pngs aren't necessary ). I use BAGplug which can boot .plg file from anywhere on yer card. If you use official EOS you'll prolly need to make an .ini for the .plg and add 'em to the _dstwoplug folder

    edit- the .png boxart is meant for BAGplug users convenience

    That happened to me too; the link should be changed from /view?ID to /dl?ID, then it'll work.

    It's an album title from Firesign Theatre, very funny stuff if you like Monty Python style comedy =)

    @topic, I just successfully downloaded the file while logged out of Filetrip, so all should be cool now
