Hi guys,

I'm Shaokhan, most old players know me as griffin65. I have played this game since year 2000 with some time on and off. Because the official Westwood server is down, I played some games over Hamachi in last couple of months and recorded some games more or less successfully and I thought I would share what I recorded with others here. Some of you may have seen the games, some not. I plan to update this thread should I decide to post more games. I would love to post some more multiplayer games, but it is hard to get a decent game off, there is lack of players and the few that are available to play most likely won't make it a good game. And this is a challenge for you guys, those who think that can compete with me, come on Hamachi and kick my ass Posted Image

Easy missions
I wished to play through every mission under 15 minutes, as I originally had 15 minutes limit on Youtube videos, however after uploading 10 videos I got notification that I had no limit anymore, but I still pushed myself to do all missions under 15 mins. At first the 9th missions seemed impossible, but after a few attempts I managed to do it Posted Image

Hard missions
Pretty tough sometimes, especially last mission for Harkonnen, it is the only mission I had to use turrets in. Also if there are 2 maps to choose from, I choose the one I did not play in easy campaign for some variety.

Skirmish games

All Multiplayer games

Multiplayer 1v1 - Harkonnen vs Harkonnen
Multiplayer 1v1 - Harkonnen vs Atreides
Multiplayer 1v1 - Harkonnen vs Ordos
Multiplayer 1v1 - Atreides vs Harkonnen
Multiplayer 1v1 - Atreides vs Atreides
Multiplayer 1v1 - Atreides vs Ordos
Multiplayer 1v1 - Ordos vs Harkonnen
Multiplayer 1v1 - Ordos vs Atreides
Multiplayer 1v1 - Ordos vs Ordos
Multiplayer 2v2
Multiplayer - Miscellaneous

Nice one, thanks for posting the vids, it's nice when modding the game to be able to quickly remind yourself what happens in each missions and I'll find your vids useful for that.

Any chance of uploading the split versions of the earlier levels?

Well I could do that, but can you tell me - is better the HD version or the normal version? The normal one is smoother, HD one more visually appealing.

I prefer the normal one, especially since Dune isn't an HD game anyway

Well looks like some people seem to think that 640x480 in 16bit is HD :laugh:

But for the rest of you, Corel allows to render it at high resolution while giving it a better visual look and it really does look different when you change to 1080 on Youtube, I would say it looks much better, but I guess it is a matter of opinion. MVI, I will post the separated videos soon.

I highly doubt it turns 16 bit at 640x480 to 1080p HD.

So I updated my videos, added hard mode campaign, these are probably my last videos for awhile, as there is really nothing to record anymore, maybe when new players come to play.

So I redesigned the original post, should be the last change, as now the links are directed towards Youtube video lists. Some more multiplayer games added also.

What an embarrassment you are shaokhan, I can't believe you banned me from the hamachi network
Because you lost a game
Does anyone know of another server where Dune2000 can be played which isnt run by a child who bans players when she loses a game
