Additional Comments

With wine's default 'sound hardware acceleration', I experienced audio failures and even hangs. However, when winecfg is run and the hardware acceleration is set to "emulation", it works perfectly. Since Dune2000 was made in a time computers were a bit slower, some animations are frustrating fast (like animated mouse cursors) and scrolling is a little bit too fast on its default setting. This, however, is of course not a Wine issue.

HowTo / Notes

Installation and patches

Setup

The setup looks for a CD drive with the right name. If you have an image of the install disc, you will need to mount it with an appropriate tool like CDEmu (fuseiso will not work).

Patches

  1. Official 1.06 patch
  2. Non-official hi-res patch
  3. The hi-res patch will not change the game assets, it will only allow modern screen resolution. This patch also helps reducing the speed issues.
OpenRA
OpenRA is a cross-platform port of several games from the Command & Conquer era. It includes a playable port of Dune 2000 running on most Unix systems.
