    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.

    ---------------
    
    In Duke Nukem Forever, your Ego bar starts at 40 points.
    
    There are 34 boosts in total, each adding 1-4 points. This gives players 60 to
    expand their Ego with, which can bring the combined total to 100 Ego points.

        and jump in through a hole in the rooftop. Inside the building you can

        nuke it up.  Bon appetit.
    
        NOTE: This boost can be earned here, but it does not go toward the counter
              on the main menu.  This is also the only destructible microwave in

    BLOWIN' THE DAM: PART 2
        This one can be a bit tricky to earn.  At the very start of the level
        there is the escape to the far left and a fenced in area on the far right.
        You will have to wait until debris hits the floor on the far right, jump
        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.

        Trooper Captains.  Eventually, the Octaking will rise from his resting
        place and attack you.

        unavoidable.
    
        The Leech is at the end of the pipe path.  It destroys the 2nd dam gate
        in order to fight you.

    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.
