  1. Eh. It was a point that hadn't specifically been mentioned back then. Can't help it this place is kinda dead in general Blame the C&C Remasters project; it got me looking into Dune Dynasty again since the scope of both projects is really similar.
  2. The difference is actually that Dune Dynasty is not a remake of Dune II at all. It's an actual upgrade of the original game. If you play Dune Dynasty, you really are playing the original Dune II, only, enhanced. Unlike remakes, it will act and feel exactly like the original game.
  3. Well, as it says, it's a voc file in several chunks. Not sure what determines the size of the chunks expected in the format (beyond the 16-bit size limit per chunk), but the specs of the chunk format clearly say And it refers to the sound chunks as "sd chunks". So I assume you just have to read the whole file in chunks, then filter out all the SD chunks, and stitch those together to form the full VOC file. I'm not sure if Audacity supports VOC though. You may need to look into older DOS modding tools to convert those files.
  4. Well, there is now
  5. Were there ever entries for these?
  6. @UnicornGraveyard Haha, I showed this picture to someone just a few days ago, and it made me look up that old site, and I came to the exact same conclusion. https://web.archive.org/web/20121022015917/http://membres.multimania.fr/esteban/english/news.htm Let the countdown begin!

    Music

    Yeah, but none of these tracks match their function, really. The one marked as "intro" is unrelated to the intro, and the "ordos" one isn't specifically Ordos in any way either. Here's the mapping of those, btw: d2intro2.wav - Rulers of Arrakis ordos2.wav - The Prophecy part 2 r22.wav - Humans Fall revenge2.wav - Into The Heat [edit] This is peculiar though... some sites have had these names for the tracks for ages... https://downloads.khinsider.com/game-soundtracks/album/dune-2 I checked archive.org; they always had them.

    Music

    Well, since I just linked to the midi files recorded from original hardware by the actual composer, I'm not sure if this is still useful 😛 We do have information from the .exe that gives some hints to what music is which track is which in the actual game files. Though do note, the actual track identifications (the sections between [brackets]) are done from personal identification by testing them in-game. Also note that according to the information on Frank Klepacki's website, the tracks generally called "ambient" (indicated as "idle" here) were apparently officially called "wander" instead. This is from a dump made by the Dune II Editor. [None (0)] Filename string ref. = <no reference> Track in this file = 0 [Bonus] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 2 [Lose Ordos] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 3 [Lose Harkonnen] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 4 [Lose Atreides] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 5 [Win Ordos] Filename string ref. = dune17 Track in this file = 4 [Win Harkonnen] Filename string ref. = dune8 Track in this file = 3 [Win Atreides] Filename string ref. = dune8 Track in this file = 2 [Idle 1] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 2] Filename string ref. = dune2 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 3] Filename string ref. = dune3 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 4] Filename string ref. = dune4 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 5] Filename string ref. = dune5 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 6] Filename string ref. = dune6 Track in this file = 6 [Idle 7] Filename string ref. = dune9 Track in this file = 4 [Idle 8] Filename string ref. = dune9 Track in this file = 5 [Idle 9] Filename string ref. = dune18 Track in this file = 6 [Attack 1] Filename string ref. = dune10 Track in this file = 7 [Attack 2] Filename string ref. = dune11 Track in this file = 7 [Attack 3] Filename string ref. = dune12 Track in this file = 7 [Attack 4] Filename string ref. = dune13 Track in this file = 7 [Attack 5] Filename string ref. = dune14 Track in this file = 7 [Attack 6] Filename string ref. = dune15 Track in this file = 7 [23] Filename string ref. = dune1 Track in this file = 8 [Brief Harkonnen] Filename string ref. = dune7 Track in this file = 2 [Brief Atreides] Filename string ref. = dune7 Track in this file = 3 [Brief Ordos] Filename string ref. = dune7 Track in this file = 4 [Intro] Filename string ref. = dune0 Track in this file = 2 [Menu] Filename string ref. = dune7 Track in this file = 6 [Conquest] Filename string ref. = dune16 Track in this file = 7 [Finale Harkonnen] Filename string ref. = dune19 Track in this file = 4 [Finale Atreides] Filename string ref. = dune19 Track in this file = 2 [Finale Ordos] Filename string ref. = dune19 Track in this file = 3 [Credits] Filename string ref. = dune20 Track in this file = 2 [Cutscene] Filename string ref. = dune16 Track in this file = 8 [35] Filename string ref. = dune0 Track in this file = 3 [Logos] Filename string ref. = dune0 Track in this file = 4 [37] Filename string ref. = dune0 Track in this file = 5 [edit] Okay, so, I matched all your midis to the official names: DUNE2-01.MID - Choose Your House (unused in-game) DUNE2-02.MID - Wander 1 - The Building of a Dynasty DUNE2-03.MID - Wander 2 - Dark Technology DUNE2-04.MID - Wander 3 - Rulers Of Arrakis.mp3 DUNE2-05.MID - Wander 4 - Desert of Doom DUNE2-06.MID - Wander 5 - Faithful Warriors DUNE2-07.MID - Wander 6 - Spice Melange DUNE2-08.MID - Harkonnen Mentat DUNE2-09.MID - Atreides Mentat - The Council DUNE2-10.MID - Ordos Mentat - Disturbed Thoughts DUNE2-11.MID - Menu - Hope Fades DUNE2-12.MID - Atreides Victory DUNE2-13.MID - Harkonnen Victory DUNE2-14.MID - Wander 7 - The Prophecy part 1 DUNE2-15.MID - Wander 8 - The Prophecy part 2 DUNE2-16.MID - Battle 2 - Epic War DUNE2-17.MID - Battle 3 - Humans Fall DUNE2-18.MID - Battle 4 - Adrenaline Rush DUNE2-19.MID - Battle 5 - Only The Strongest Survives DUNE2-20.MID - Battle 6 - Marching Towards The End DUNE2-21.MID - Map Theme DUNE2-22.MID - [Interlude track: Plotting (not on Frank's site)] DUNE2-23.MID - Ordos Victory - Abuse DUNE2-24.MID - Wander 9 - For Those Fallen DUNE2-25.MID - [Atreides Ending Cutscene (not on Frank's site)] DUNE2-26.MID - [Ordos Ending Cutscene (not on Frank's site)] DUNE2-27.MID - [Haronnen Ending Cutscene (not on Frank's site)] Not accounted for: Game intro Battle 1 - Into The Heat Credits theme All three "Lose" themes (thought they're only 8 second clips) Note that the midi files are available here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=33823&start=42 These seem identical to yours, only the pack has all of them. The unused "Choose Your House" theme is misidentified as "Ambient 1" though.

    Music

    Oh wow, you gotta listen to Faithful Warriors (Wander #5); after 1:45 there's a whole new background sound in it that I'm quite sure the original didn't have.

    Music

    A rather major update on this: the new updated jukebox on Frank Klepacki's new website contains pretty much all the Dune II music, most likely straight from the original hardware it was composed on. This also means that we now have official track names for all of the music! And best of all: you can simply right-click middle-mouse click the tracks to save them. https://www.frankklepacki.com/ost/vg/dune2 This also officially confirms that the mysterious track we found in the files was meant to be played on the houses selection screen. Besides that, it also has two medleys, one of which was already released previously under "rare tracks" on the old jukebox. An interesting detail these medleys seem to indicate is that the tracks generally called "ambient" were seen as "wander" tracks by Frank, a designation which I find quite fitting for a Dune game. On to missing things: there are no "lose" tracks in there. Though, these were only 8 seconds long, so I can understand them not being seen as real "music" by Frank. On the other hand, the Lion King soundtrack on the site does have the game's 7-second death theme. More worrying is the lack of the 'plotting' music of the interlude with the Emperor talking to the enemy mentats, the music of the final cutscene for each house, and the original credits music. There is a remix of the credits theme, which starts with that mystery theme now identified as the house selection music, but the original is not there. Another thing that is quite different is the map theme: it has an intro of about 45 seconds before getting to the familiar 42-second piece used in the actual game. After the known piece it continues a bit more, and then goes on into the same tune as Battle 2 (Epic War). Then at 2:28 it goes on to a completely new tune. Anyway, here is the full sorted list as I got it now: 01. Introduction.mp3 02. Menu - Hope Fades.mp3 03. Choose Your House.mp3 04. Atreides Mentat - The Council.mp3 05. Harkonnen Mentat.mp3 06.

  12. Or you just post it on their bug tracker... https://github.com/ctm/executor/issues
  13. Mode 13 is standard 320x200 256 colour mode. But this is about the mac version, which is 1. not DOS, 2. not 320x200. so I doubt any of that applies to it. And that "Let’s run the original Warcraft" article also only handles the DOS version, despite talking about MacOS.
  14. Note that Dune Legacy is a clone, and Dune Dynasty is a game enhancement built on the the original engine, as reverse-engineered by the OpenDune project, making the two projects quite different in scope... I'm not sure why you say Dynasty is impossible to play - it works quite well once you set it up, and besides some bug fixes, it acts 100% like the original game did. I wrote complete install instructions for it here. As for contact, well, Dune Legacy literally has a "Contact" page on its website. No idea about Dynasty, though, I indeed haven't seen him around for a while.
  15. @The_Legacy Not sure about bare OpenDune. I see MT-32 options mentioned in its ini, but nothing about Adlib. In Dune Dynasty, the enhancement built on OpenDune, you can add MP3 packs of different music releases, though. I posted full install instructions for that here: https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/24316-dune-dynasty/page/12/#comment-391240 I believe MrFlibble posted a guide to using the adlib stuff in DOS, so if all fails, just use DOSBox I guess.
