Thanks for the tip but for this setup we'll be playing offline LAN on old XP/Vista hardware where the games are already installed. The easiest thing would be to just replace the DUNE2000.dat file with the patched one.
EDIT: That said, if we can't get hold of the patched file we're looking for we will look into other options and this might be the one.
you can play LAN games through the gruntmods app. Open up cnc net, wait for it to check for upgrades, that way every machine has the same files. Next select lan instead of online and your in. i do it with my kids here at home.
This is my first post and I'm planning on having some friends over for some old school LAN next week (first time in 15 years 🙂).
I'm not looking for a patch to get the game running over LAN with TCP/IP. The only place I found a simple patch was on this forum posted 14 years ago, link below, but the links to file are long gone.
My question is if someone has saved this file/files and could share them with me? Thanks in advance, Calle
regarding homing weapons, I'll mention that I've been using the glitched behavior to make suicide units - some homing attacks will straight up strike the very unit that fires the weapon. some other weapons, like Devastator shots, can be set to homing and work! but yeah, can't use just any old weapon for homing attacks
just throwing that out there, in case you plan to fix it perhaps a [vars] could be attached so homing can work on any weapon, but the glitched behavior isn't removed completely, idk lol
