Nyerguds Posted June 19, 2019 Share Posted June 19, 2019 (edited) 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.
