Today a guy dropped by at FED2k Forums and announced a port of Dune II: The Building of A Dynasty called Dune Dynasty. This is an enhanced Windows & Linux port of OpenDUNE, which in turn is a very faithful recreation of the Dune II engine based on reverse-engineering of the original game.

Dune Dynasty offers to play in high resolution modes, adds multiple-unit selection, production queues and rally points, and also improves the AI and sound emulation. At the same time, the port stays as close to the original as possible.



NOTE: You need the original files from Dune II v1.07 to play.

I very much prefer the look of Dune 2000 to Dune 2. It's funny how tiled the graphics look here and how they wouldn't maintain a consistent perspective for the graphics.

Because Dune 2000 is persistent with it's perspective? Look at the back cliffs. #Tongue  Though I do too much prefer D2k.

Actually I just looked and Dune 2000 does seem to have something wonky happening with the cliffs.

So after reading some of how this Dune 2 version was made, it seems the Roland sound code would still be intact? And would it only work on real Roland hardware or would software emulation of it work also?

From what I understand the machine code was automatically decompiled to assembly code, and now the programmers are slowly manually replacing all that assembly code with C code?

Actually, all that is already done. That's OpenDune.

Someone else took the result of that, and added new features like high-res, multiple unit selection, build queueing, context sensitive commands, ini modding capabilities etc to it. THAT is Dune Dynasty.
