  1. Westwood is long dead and gone; and the Herbert Estate refuses to re-release the old games, "if it's old it should stay old".
  2. Bump. I tried importing the entire dialog.bag into Audacity and all voices (viewed and played as one long track) have static/noise in the payback. One would think the BAG is corrupted on my end, but in-game there is no static/noise that grinds your ears. Any ideas?
  3. Title. Whenever I do it with DuneEx 2 I get some .CMP files that no player can use. I can import Raw Data into Audacity, but there's always static. Always. Extracting with BagTool is not better. Thankfully the few .W SFX are converted into WAV by DuneEx2 without issues or static. How do you extract E:BfD game CMP sounds and dialogues without static remaining?
  4. Have you tried using 10's game bar? That is the only one that works on my end for recording RA2. I don't think I have tested it for E:BfD on my current machine, but it's worth a shot.
  5. Oh yeah, my fault. E:BfD also has cameo-placement problems or something, IIIRC; had those too when messing around with the hidden stuff I found. Anyways, in general, without the files or code-snippets, there won't be much help. Your screenie posted some of the rules, but not the art. Artini.txt is responsible for handling anything art- and cameo-related. You're in luck here tho as I already have the TXTs. So do you. TibEd creates them in the folder DATA>MODEL Back to the Imperial Tank: Open ArtIni.txt, hit Ctrl+F and look for IMTANK. If you compare the IMTANK's section with that of others, you'd see it lacks a valid cameo. Any cameo here should do. Icon = "icons\\IM_Sardaukar.tga" IconGrey = "icons\\grey_IM_Sardaukar.tga" That'll give the IMTANK the cameo of the generic Sardaukar Trooper. It doesn't have to be him, can be someone else, provided the cameo exists. Next, you'll need to tell the game where to put the cameo. SideBarType = "Units" This'll tell the game to put the IMTANK with the other units. I think. Now you just need to make the IMTANK buildable. Compare its PrimaryBuilding, UnitGroup, House and UpgradedPrimaryRequired(if it exists) properties in Rules.txt to something like the Assault Tank (HKAssault). The way I see it over here, just opening the original rules.txt and getting rid of the "//" in [IMTANK]>//PrimaryBuilding = HKFactory and changing House to "Harkonnen" will make it buildable from the Harkonnen Factory. I think that should do it. I think. Try it out and reply.
  6. Change the PrimaryFactory/PrimaryBuilding, for one. Then see check if there anything else, like SecondaryBuilding or UpgradedPrimary or similar. The flags should be self-explanatory.
  7. I think you can still play Emperor online regularly with XWIS, not sure on the details tho. http://xwis.net/forums/index.php?/forum/83-support/
  8. Virtual CloneDrive Try without it, if you can...
  9. 1) Officially, you can get the game by ordering it via Amazon or ebay, where you supposedly get a functioning installer CD. Depending on the OS, it may or may not work, if I understood it correctly. (chk https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Emperor:_Battle_for_Dune#Availability) Of course, whether or not you trust online-shopping where you can't see whether or not you're being scammed for yourself when it comes to PC hardware and/or software is your thing. I don't. Regardless, I heard the "safest" option, is... well... Let's just say it isn't approved of by most people, myself included. Although, to be fair: no-one will go after you as they can't. I heard the Dune games are in "licensing hell", meaning anyone can pirate the game and no-one can legally do anything about it. Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose. I'd buy the game, but I don't know anyone reliable enough to buy from. It's a trust thing, really. 2) Yes, the game can and will run on Lose10. Tho, chk https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/27468-problem-with-resolution/ for any potential problems regarding resolution, and https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Emperor:_Battle_for_Dune#Lag_fix_in_Windows_8.2F10 for performance problems on 10. 3) Yeah, Emperor was among WW's finest RTSs. The story could've used a lot more work, tho, with all that territory mechanic... I mean, the missions felt real (capture old outpost, rescue pilot, bring old refinery back online), but other than offering some variety to the missions, they had no impact on the campaign what-so-ever. A shame, really. E:BfD should've been released about a year after YR, so it wouldn't have been so over-shadowed.

  11. Apparently, every version on this site is a beta that can't create new files for some reason. Does anyone have a version that can open, create and insert files? Thanks.
  12. Considering it was the RTS-precursor and had "one-unit" limit and not that many (or any, AFAIK) keyboard commands... This shouldn't come off as a surprise, but it still does.
  13. I was being sarcastic. Why, EA? Why..? 😭
  14. Trust you? Who are you? A Rivals player? And I did say smartphone life is a shame. A complete and absolute shame. Yeah, we don't want Dune for phone. We want Dune and C&C for PC and only PC. One last thing: Rivals? A) not a C&C game. B) I never heard of Rivals. Is it good?
