There's a free download of Shadow Warrior (1997) on Steam, it's not the REDUX version, it's the standard DOS game. It is free, and now comes with 2 beta builds of the game!

One of the beta's has been online since 1997, as it was leaked by a tech support employee who wanted to play with his friends, and it made its way beyond just the friend. It has now been legitimized, as many did not know of its existence or presence on the web.

You can find out more about this beta here:
http://hendricks266.duke4.net/swbeta.php

The other is an alpha build from 1996. If you have ever taken a look at the DN3D "GOODIES" folder found on the disc, it showed screenshots from this build. It is very unfinished for the most part, but has some interesting levels, art, etc. that you may find interesting or even useful for modding.

Even better, there's 6 other alpha/beta prototypes that may soon see release in this format as well. One of them cannot be ran due to some error with the EXE, but they may just include the folder for people to explore it. I'm not sure when these other 6 will be released, but seeing that they did this with 2 of them, I could see them doing it with the rest.

Duke Nukem 3d has several, several, prototype builds, and negotiations to release them are apparently being made. I think there are so many prototypes of DN3D in the archive, that it may take a really long time to ever see these, and also Gearbox has to agree to it (and so far things are looking up).

Do you have a quote of this EXE error message?

Edit: Thanks for the PM. I think I know most of what's going on. But I doubt either of us will get the EXE running until we look deep into the source code.

Thanks. I had known that there's a Shadow Warrior reboot. Nobody told me that there's a Shadow Warrior 2 from 2016 at http://store.steampowered.com/search/?term=Shadow+Warrior

Shadow Warrior 2 is apparently very good (although quite different).
