CnCNet doesn't support Emperor Battle for Dune and wont unless someone wants to do the necessary work to support it. If CnCNet supports it you will need your original copy in order to play it and no download for the game will be provided.

Oh, thats unfortunate, i still own the discs, it was a *very* hard game to find in New Zealand.

I may have to invest in a usb cd drive or something in the future.

Thanks for letting me know :)

      Registering Your Gamesurge Account on CnCNet
       
      NOTE: At this moment, this does NOT work on the Yuri's Revenge client.
       
      Registering your account on CnCNet is a very simple process, and is recommended. One of the main reasons we recommend registering is that you'll be able to combat potential impersonators. An impersonator is a person who pretends to be someone else for entertainment or fraud. You'll also be able to have awards tied to your account such as the Gold Medal.
       
      Registering is very easy, so here's where we'll begin. Our client is tied with our partners over at GameSurge.
       
      1. Go to: https://gamesurge.net/createaccount/

       
      2. Enter your information here. Your account name is the name that will be displayed when other players perform a whois on you. Your account name will NOT become your display name.

       
      3. Login to your email. Check your junk folder as well, as sometimes your email will put GameSurge's email into the junk folder. The email should arrive in a timely manner, it should not take more than 30 minutes. The instructions are also posted in the email.

       
      4. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. This can also be performed in the lobby as well. I do not recommend doing this as if you mess up, your information will be plastered all over the lobby. I have seen this happen.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv auth <account> <temporary password>
       
      Your temporary password is the password located in the email you received from GameSurge.
       
      5. You will receive a notification from AuthServ stating that your information has been accepted.

       
      You are now logged into your account.
       
       
      Changing Your Password
       
      1. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. You can also enter the command in the lobby.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv pass <old password> <new password>
       
      2. You will receive a notification from AuthServ in the lobby stating that your password has been successfully changed.

       
      NOTE: If you've pasted your account information in the lobby, change your password immediately!
       
       
      Logging Into Your Account
       
      1. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. You can also enter the command in the lobby.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv auth <account> <password>
       
      2. You will receive a notification from AuthServ in the lobby stating that you've been recognized.

       
      You are now logged into your account.
       
      When clicking onto a user, you'll receive information about this user. If this user has logged into their account, you will see a (No Fake) title applied to their name and the account they're logged into.

      Hi,
      I would like to install and play Dune2000.  I have to first install your client, CNCNET5.EXE.  What are the requirements for installing the client?  It seems to want to verify files and directories, before installation will proceed.  Can you point me to your installation instructions?

      This is a solution to become a CnCNet host server in linux servers that have systemd for service control (Debian, Ubuntu,...):
      Do it as a root or add 'sudo' before every command:
       
      apt-get install libmono-system-core4.0-cil mono-runtime useradd -m cncnet wget -O /home/cncnet/cncnet-server.exe http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server.exe chown cncnet:cncnet /home/cncnet/cncnet-server.exe wget -O /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service https://files.catbox.moe/z7y3nd.service # Change 'my new name server' to your own server name sed -i 's/My cool server/my new name server/g' /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service systemctl daemon-reload systemctl enable cncnet.service systemctl start cncnet.service Make a service is better than crontab for auto start solution!

      Red Alert 2 Original first post:
      As I sort of mentioned a while back, I got tired of the lack of font editor for C&C1, and even more tired of Siberian_GRemlin sitting on his (working) version for about 10 years now.
      So I've decided to make my own in c#. With the help of the RA++ team (Omniblade, CCHyper & Tomsons26, anyway) I figured out the font format itself, and managed to make code to read it and show it as image. Apparently this format is used for quite a bit more than C&C1 and RA1; we used fonts from Legend of Kyrandia as test material as well, and apparently this should support Dune II too.
      Fonts have no colour palette of their own. They are 4-bit (meaning, 16 colour) images that, much like SHP files, receive colours from the game at the moment they're drawn. So I started off by generating a simple black-to-white fade for the palette, with black as the background color. This version also already moved the character down according to the extra Y-offset in the file.

      Next step: making an actual editor. I already had a zooming pixel image viewer from a little C&C-N64 project I worked on in the past few weeks, so that part was no problem (as already seen in the previous image). So the next step: drawing an editing grid on it. Well, I say "on it", but actually I needed three extra image layers positioned both behind and in front of the original image to pull it off, lol. Transparency is a strange thing in .Net controls.

      Next was getting a pixel drawn on that to indicate your editing position. That was easier than expected, really, and now I had a nifty giant pixel following my mouse around. Also note the fancy program icon; Tomsons26 made that

      I decided, around this time, to switch to a more colourful palette that would let you easily distinguish the different indices when editing. I just basically went over all hue values and made a nice little rainbow. I also coded in some extra behaviour to allow disabling the grid, and the red frame that shows you which part of it is actually editable.

      Of course, an editor is utterly useless if it can't actually save files, a little detail Siberian_GRemlin seemed to forget when he released a "demo" of his editor... eight years ago now. So after editing worked, I went into the mess of trying to save the image data back to palette.
      It took a few tries to get it right.
      But, finally, I managed to get a saved file!

      No, wait, crap, that's one of the failed ones. Ahem. Anyway. The pic I linked before shows the final successful attempt. There's a little pixel I made transparent, in the middle, to prove it was actually edited. Trust me, it was orange originally
      Now, there's just one thing still missing from the editor... and that's, well, the actual editing, more or less. I could only change the colour to one specific one with the left mouse button, and to background (transparency) with the right mouse button. So I dug up another nice control I had lying around for one of my older projects, namely a palette-loading colour selector. Took some time to adapt it, since the original was meant for 256 colours, but, I'm happy with the final result!

      It's starting to look good, no?
      At this moment, it's still missing some vital features, though; you can't change the size of the images or their Y-offset, and you can't add new character images to a font. These will come later, but at this moment, I do actually have a working editor.
      It's obviously still beta at the moment, but to anyone who wants to mess around with it, here it is:
      Westwood Font Editor v0.4
      The source code is in the folder too, for those who are interested.
