Hi All, I discovered Gruntmods' Dune 2000 and am really enjoying it. Only, i cannot get multiplayer to work from inside virtual machine (i am traveling for business and obviously cannot install anything on my company PC). Looking on this and cncnet forum i found that the problem is known, the threads are inactive since several months and no solution has been published. My host PC is a Win7 x64 machine. I use latest VMWare player for virtualization. Virtual machine is Win10 Pro x86. Network mode (NAT / bridged) doesnt make any difference: CNC client does not connect (but VM can connect to Internet fine). On a forum somebody said that an older cncnet client (which version?) works from inside VM; where can i download older version of the client? I tried to copy the installation files on the host PC: now cncnet client can connect but launcher complains about incorrect installation. If I move the installation file to another location inside my VM i get the same result and the cncnet client still doesn't work (obviously). On the website it is mentioned also a portable version of Gruntmods Dune 2000 but i cannot find it. Can anybody please help? Many thanks in advance.
Hello fellows. I see questions like “Can this game still be played online?” or “Is it possible to play multiplayer game?” appears periodically. So in this topic I want to summarize my knowledge on this subject. Well, I won’t describe the old method concerning IPX/SPX protocol installing & configuring. Cause there are many requirements. Install Evolve or Tunngle software. LAN Patch for multiplayer game. For 32&64 bit WinXPVista&7 OS. It's universal, both for 1.02 - 1.06 game versions & it don't modify the game files! See ReadMe inside & watch video tutorial You may also use GameRanger to play Dune 2000. But afaik GameRanger supports 1.02 game version only it's rather lagy unstable way to play Dune2k, especially if more than 2 ppl playing... For Dune2k & other IPX based games you may use Kali gaming client. No need in VPN software then. Watch video guide here. You may download portable (without videos, no need to install) 1.06 game here Those users who properly configured their firewall, Re-prioritized their network adapter, but still have problems connecting with others, may try this great utility - LanGame++ Running your own PvPGN Server I decided to upload PVPGN server v.1.99 compiled by my friend playtester from old-games.ru forum. It’s console based server, so you have to know/learn server commands. Making this server to work isn’t a trivial task either. I’am absolutely not the one to ask the questions about how to establish this server. Better visit official site forum. You will also need WOL components installed to play Dune or C&C via PvPGN. Anyway, we tested PvPGN server in Dune2k & StarCraft. It works! Anyone who wants to revive Dune2k multiplayer matches may now do so. Multiplayer match video. 4 players. Intense action. Was held on PvPGN server. Long Live the Fighters!
This archive contains _PRAC.MIS files that will let you to play the following game types: *) 2 human players vs. 4 AI players *) 3 human players vs. 3 AI players Note that the humans will be allied from the beggining of the game. (the same for AI), so no need to select a unit and hit the "A" key. For now, these files work only in Comp Stomp mode (humans vs. AI) but can be edited to work also for 2v2 matches between humans. Also note that a 2 humans vs 3 AI or 2 humans vs 2 AI is posible. How? Just add 2 AI players for 2v2 or 3 AI players for 2v3 instead of 4 AI for 2v4. All the players MUST HAVE the same _PRAC.MIS file for the game to work. If not, you'll crash. *** These files have been tested by my clanmate [aKa]Deliutsaa:x, Digit@l and me and are fully operational. But if you find something that isn't ok, let me know. You can also edit them using MVI's editor. I've uploaded them just to give the possibility to play against ALLIED AI players. As you know, without an alliance the AI players are really weak. ReadMe included, read it for installation instructions and other things :) Hope you like them and hope that they will help you! EDIT: The 2nd archive containes a .MIS file that can be used only in Practice singleplayer mode. Will make all the AI players that you introduce to ally against you. Useful to train your surviving abilities and to play under pressure xD _PRAC.MIS files.zip 1 v 5.zip 2v2v2.zip
