SORRY I FORGOT TO WRITE SOMETHING!

OK!
MY PROBLEM IS THAT THE GAME IS ALL SET UP AND READY TO GO, I CLICK ON IT TO
OPEN THE GAME, IT LOADS AND THEN GOES TO THE BLACK SCREEN. THEN IT JUST GETS
OUT OF THE GAME LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED.
I NEED HELP.

The Stormtrooper rebellion will rise to Ultimate Power so join or DIE!

So you have two problems-- A stuck caps lock key and a game that doesn't
run.
I/m afraid that the first problem needs to be solved before you will get
much help on the second.

A few system details would be nice-- They help in giving specific advice.
Failing that- have you tried starting the game with any of the compatability
settings?
As I recall, it was quite touchy to begin with, using the older vindows
versions. and with some graphics cards.

Duke Nuken 3D is/was a DOS game and you need to have an enhanced DOS
emulation systems such as 'DOSBox' or 'VDMSound.'

As for my personal ecperience, I used Duke Nukem 3D with VDMSound and the
game crashes each time I hit a wall.

Look here for a 32bit port.
