    Map and Mission Editor: finally a small update after all

    I'm probably doing something wrong, but when I load (as example) the map MO8V1.MAP and do a quick launch I start as mercenaries. It should be Ordos. If I do Test>Launch with settings and select play as on Ordos.... I'm not really in control and the computer starts building. Cm_blast, see below, spotted my mistake. Ignore this post.

    Map and Mission Editor: finally a small update after all

    Thank you for the update Klofkac. I tested with my multi-monitor set and the program now nicely goes to the main monitor if the other one is disabled. I dragged a map into the program and it beautifully got the correct tileset. Did a Test>Quick launch and it work flawlessly. Awesome! When I got some time I will do more map analysis for fun, perhaps it will show some interesting connections or nothing, haha. edit: I did notice one small thing. The colors are different in your program compared to the game. See image below.

    D2k Background Music/Sounds

    Yeah, I see what you mean. I will also try that. This might mean that the music will be more 'basic', because I can't do fancy rhythm stuff (because of my limits and the program). Gonna be fun to make some new 'Dune 2000' sounds and mixing. If you guys got suggestions just post here. By the way, I will be aiming at spooky space dark background sounds/music, not the next pop song.

    D2k Background Music/Sounds

    Thanks! Yes, making music in Ignite can go smoothly and is a lot of fun, thanks to things like pre-recorded notes, however the program does have its limitations in how complex the music (timing) can get. The last song was made in Music Creator 6 which has more options, but I still find it difficult to get the same timing as the original Dune 2000 music. I'm probably just not that good at understanding music and rhythm. I will see if I got some time next month to make new sounds. Yeah, I will call it sounds, because it are not really songs, more like dark-empty-space-dune-themed-sounds.

    Dune 2000 1.06p - Game patching (bug fixes, new features)

    I like the idea of using a big image (compressed) and making it smaller. I will try some code to make that resizing work. However I already looked into using compressing in c(++) code, I did not succeed. I will need to take a look at this again, I'm not so good at C(++), I'm better at Python. Perhaps you got some suggestions? Something different. I and some users (here) reporting that with small map and big resolution the menu "gets stuck" on the background next to the battlefield. Helkor Duner made a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WU6bxnCXgv0&feature=youtu.&t=0m26s Can this be fixed?

    Very fast animation

    No problem. The 'stuck' menu image is also on my pc. On larger maps this is not a problem. I will post your video in the 106p-game-patching-topic. Maybe the creator, Funkyfresh, knows how to fix it.

    Dune 2000 should work on Windows 10. Did you already try this version: https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/26661-dune-2000-106p-game-patching-bug-fixes-new-features/ You need to replace the dune2000.exe file with the one in the topic above. You can also try the dune2000config.exe tool (put it same folder as dune2000.exe) to change resolution and set max fps. No... latest version of tool you cannot change that, but perhaps it set standard at max 60fps.

    constant freezing

    There should be a "dune2000.exe" file, else you can't play the game. Maybe on your PC it is just called 'dune2000' because Windows settings for common file extensions are hidden. If you got the CD and want to play the game again sometime, you can try this guide: https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/27834-how-to-install-dune-2000-from-cd-and-bring-up-to-date/ If you don't got the CD you can try abandonia version: http://www.abandonia.com/en/downloadgame/27329 and get the Funkyfr3sh files from the link I provided above. This version does not have video's. If you reinstall the game, don't forget to copy the save games.

    constant freezing

    You did paste the files into the Dune 2000 folder and overwrite the old dune2000.exe file? To run the files you also need "permission", so try right-click on the program and select "run as administrator" or something equivalent.

    [Release] Smuggling Operations - Dune 2000 Campaign

    Nice work! Thank you. I enjoyed the first two levels. First time I died right away, second time I kept building units and survived. Nice how the engineers focus on silos. However the third level is too difficult for me. I cannot build enough units on time and I cannot build turrets. Also building harvesters at the same time is not possible. Any hints, tips or tricks? In the readme.txt there is a small mistake. You wrote: But it should be "installed" with two l's.

    [RELEASE] Mission Select

    I re-uploaded this 'upgrade' for version 1.06 below because I think it is a nice addition to the game. Funkyfr3sh MissionLauncher tool is also nice, but this feels more authentic. MissionSelect106.zip You can also get it here: https://d2kplus.com/mission-select-menu/ Preview:

    constant freezing

    Perhaps the computer gets too hot. You can check if the cooling is good, like remove dust and see all fans are spinning. Do you also play other games on this computer? They don't experience freezing up randomly? You can also try to make sure your HDD is still okay by running chkdsk from cmd. (google for more info) If it is not cooling or HDD, you can try different rendering options. I don't know which game version you are using but I highly recommend the Funkyfr3sh version. Link: https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/26661-dune-2000-106p-game-patching-bug-fixes-new-features/ Get the dune2000.exe and dune2000config.exe tool. In the dune 2000 config tool change the Renderer setting, see below, maybe that helps.

    D2k Background Music/Sounds

    I tried to recreate this soundtrack and boy I did not succeed. Well, the first part I think is okay, but the second faster part with the bass guitar is not do-able for me. I spend almost two days trying to get that tune/effect, but I couldn't. 🙂 So here is only the first (boring) part of Under Construction recreated, I call it: Under New Construction.mp3 Perhaps I will also try other soundtracks, because it is a lot of fun.
