Dune 2000

Recommended Posts

So I hear FunkyFr3sh has been patching the game up a bit... can we have it on CnCnet now?

Seriously, is there a reason. Seems like a perfect place for it to exist. Is it just time and effort?

I just checked the Dune 2000 Online site and it appears to be shut down :( Nobody used it anyway, too bad.

 

yea, the guy who was running didnt had backups of the files and the server provider went down .. thats when the problems started and server is now gone for good i heard

 

not sure when dune 2000 goes cncnet, i got skirmish games working already but i have yet to look up the multiplayer stuff

 

it is on my to-do list and might be finished during the next 10years :D

Sweet... just 9 years and 364 days to go!

Seriously, I hope it's done well before that time, haha

It had a LAN mode built in, didn't it? Would it be maybe easier to just have it hook up through that, much like Hamachi/CnCnet4

I guess it's all a lot of work in any way. Good luck!

That's awesome. I saw the high res patch at dune2k.com a while ago, now browsing the forums I see FunkyFr3sh is all over it.

 

Glad to see all the games based on the engine getting so much love so many years on and more importantly, that members of the community seem so eager to band together to get things working.

 

Brings a tear to my eye  :D

We just added support for dune2000, it will take some time to build up a playerbase :) just stick around, wait some minutes in the lobby and you will for sure get a game going!

Doesn't work well with Windows 8.1, but it's possible to play.

 

yea i knew about the win8 problems, should be fixed now

 

turn off all compat modes and try without them

Good news. What about language packs?

 

that is in my to do list, will probably read the language settiong from dune2000.ini and rename the text.uib (string table) to text-rus.uib etc

Are D2k languages really just the strings and sounds? Or are there actual graphics changes needed too? I'd imagine the font could be a problem...
