A1 . ABOUT EGO BOOSTS
---------------------

This is probably not a necessary read, but I believe I should include a few
notes about the game mechanics.

Duke Nukem's ego is obviously so inflated it also manages to protect him from
serious harm; Stopping bullets, claws, psionic blasts, rockets, etc.  However,
it does have limits, thus it is essential to find a means to further enlarge
Duke's ego.

That is where this guides comes into play.  This guide will discuss what all
the ego boosts are, and where to find them.

- There are many items/events Duke Nukem can interact with in-game that to help
  him raise his ego.  Such examples include:

    * Winning at video games
    * Exercising and sports-related activity
    * Certain kinds of eye candy (Calendars, magazines, etc.)
    * Defeating powerful bosses

- All Ego Boosts can be obtained during one play-through of the game.
- Some Ego Boosts can be found in more then one place  (for instance, the one 
  on the computer monitors may be found at four different places).  However, a
  player can only claim an Ego Boost once.
- It does not matter what difficulty the player plays at to earn Ego Boosts.
  Once a player has earned one during a play-through, it stays.  This is
  helpful for getting through the "Damn, I'm Good" difficulty.
- When a player starts a "New Campaign", the Ego Bar will reset.

NOTES:

- There are no actual "names" for the Ego Boosts.  I simply came up with some
  to help identify what they are.
- In the "SORTED BY MISSIONS" section, some of the Ego Boosts are marked with
  a "-- NEW!" tag.  This represents the first time they appear in-game.

    onto it and over the fence.  The water level will be rising, but you can
    still pick the magazine off the floor.  The tough part will be escaping.
    You will have to wait until the water level rises high enough so you can
    get out of the fenced area, swim over to the far side, then dive down, go
    through the small door and swim up the staircase.  You should be able to
    accomplish this without drowning.

C2 . DISCLAIMERS
----------------

This document is intended to be for personal use only.  Please do not post this
on other game sites without written permission.  Currently, the only site with
permission to host this is GameFAQs.

This entire run was done from scratch, without looking at other FAQs or videos.
The intention was to try and find any and all possible means of earning ego
boosts.  I figure, "If I can find them, anyone should be able to, eventually".

C3 . VERSION UPDATES
--------------------

1.3 (March 19th, 2014)
   - Found an unexpected Ego Boost in "GHOST TOWN".

1.2 (November 26th, 2013)
   - Fixed more typos.
   - Updated "Authorized Hosts".

1.1 (October 10th, 2013)
   - Added more information for "CURL IT!".  There are additional locations
     you can pick up the dumbbells in "The Duke Cave".
   - Finally found the last two Ego Boots in BLOWIN THE DAM': PART 2 and have
     listed descriptions on how to find them (I have no idea why they made
     these so tedious to find when they are much easier to find in other areas
     of the game).
   - Found and fixed several typos, including one in "UP IN SMOKE".
   - Found an error in "CATCH!".  The first location was incorrect.  It should
     be "CRASH SITE", not "DUKE NUKEM'S TITTY CITY"
   - Managed to calculate the ratio on "Starting Ego" VS "Complete Ego Bar".
     While I have no idea if a starting level of 40 and expansion of 60 are the
     number used in-game, I have surmised that the ratio is correct.  The
     calculations are based off measuring the Ego Bar in-game:
      * Without boosts, measured 37mm on my computer monitor
      * With all the boosts, measured 93mm on my computer monitor
     Since I do not have a means to take screen captures off my Xbox 360, I
     took a ruler and did it the old-fashioned way.  Taking into account the
     60 points for the boosts, I ended up with 40 as the starting point for
     the Ego bar and 100 as the total.  This is not the same result as the
     DLC addon, because the starting and final bars are different sizes.
   - Updated the "Sort By Missions" section.

1.0 (September 30th, 2013)
   - Completed the guide.
