Hi FED2k! It has been a long time since I stuck my head in to say hello, some of you might remember me when I was researching for a high-res patch for D2k. All my time now is spent on a new project called "RA++", but that is not why I am here... In my profession, I work in the commerical print industry and this gives me access to all sorts of awesome services, and this includes printing posters for absolute pennies, including this one... I am able to source the Dune II key art from the box in very high resolution, so this allowed me to produce a "movie style" poster, with complete game credits! Now I have 9 of these available (maybe more in the future if they go quickly) and the printed size is 58cm x 86cm, and Nyerguds just got one from me and he can varify the high quality of the print. :) So I am offering these out to anyone and everyone, and all you would need to pay for is the postage/carriage charge, so the poster is absolutly free! You can contact me via PM, and they are first come, first serve! I have many others posters I have designed and recreated with the help of tomsons26 from CNCNet, so if you have any requests for other games C&C, Tomb Radier, Metal Gear Solid, Lands Of Lore etc, I can look into producing posters for these games too :D
I found this on ebay, for $15. Despite the shipping to Belgium coming down to an additional $33, I could absolutely not resist this: The box arrived yesterday, and I immediately got to work. Sadly my current PC doesn't have a floppy drive, so I couldn't get the content off the disks, but I'm fairly sure I already got that version on my disk anyway. The main reasons I had for buying this didn't really include the floppies, anyway. These reasons, besides the fact this is a treasure of gaming history, and the fact the box is complete even down to the original receipt of the sale in a game store, are these: -The cover art. I haven't found any place online that has a high resolution version of that, or even a good quality one. -That cute little newspaper thingy, which is more or less their newsletter with added internal development anecdotes, and some hints and tricks for their games. -The lovely ring-bound manual. Of course, since I already remade the manual as PDF file with colour images, there wasn't much use in scanning that. Not to mention, A) there must be plenty of scans of that going around, and B) it's ring-bound, which is annoying to scan. However, the other two items are scanned, and posted here for your enjoyment: Find them all here: Scan of the cover image (larger version) Full scan of the cover (the gold letters came out quite nicely I think ;) ) Newspaper page 1 Newspaper page 2 Newspaper page 3 Newspaper page 4 These are, in fact, still downsized versions; I scanned everything at 600 dpi. You can find the ultra-high lossless png versions in this folder: http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/dune/dune2box/png/
