I was like, "Let's watch Dune" and they said "Why you want to see DOOM?" - I said "not Doom, DUNE!"

And then we watched it and they enjoyed it.

 

But yeah my Step Brothers never heard of it.

 

I sorta don't want to see a new Dune movie, Id be horrified if they give the project to someone like Michael Bay. If the director was competent ok, but again I think hollywood would just try to turn it into ACTION, Explosions!!! arg....

 

As for games people can always make mods, sorta like the very nice Civilization 4 Dune Mod.

O, yeah! Like new film "The Hobbit". Beatiful fairy tale becomes action film.

Do you mean that game exists on the base of Civilization 4? It can be interesting!

Not sure I get your question, but basically a MOD is something you apply to a game to change it up. And Civilization 4 has a overhaul mod that changes the world and makes it all about Dune. Check it out; http://www.moddb.com/mods/dune-wars

 

So if ever someone was a mod genius he could turn Mass Effect into Dune, that would be great! But I won't hold my breath. Or any other game that's recent. :)

Mass effect did not have a modding toolkit to my knowledge. But Dragon Age did. Ok obviously ME is already set in space, but I think a Dune mod for DA would be feasible too, focusing on the court politics rather than exploration.

Come now, The Hobbit was always an adventure story.

Just a question..

Why can't all the guys in this forum join and make a fan game..

That way we can survive on ourselves..

And give the non active fans something worthwhile..

I am not saying everyone should..

But I have seen lot of able people Dune n this forum..

ArtArtists, Composers, Logic and Analytic Thinkers, Plot Creators and the Fans who have read the whole series and watched all that needs to be..

I am trying my best although all my aattpts are a stalemate due to my college problems..

Once it's over I'll be back to make it..

There was someone making a dune 2000 game back sometime, Jamie i guess was the name..

Some people stand up others help them while some are whiners..

Just spelling a truth..

Just showing that we are also responsible if Dune Phenomenon ceases to exist and in the future..

We might be the last to taste the beauty of this universe..

May the sands never shift..

Agreed Adventure, but theirs a difference between Adventure and Action. - Most movies today seems to be more action.

I don't mind helping out here and there, but I can't commit completely, I have other projects I do, I'm happy to help where I can.

The book ends with a battle between five armies. They didn't make that up for the movie, you know. That warrants action :P

Alright good point. I've only seen the first hobbit, all I know if I never felt like any of the characters where in real danger, except for the wizard of the forest character. There was one scene particularly where they where running away from some goblins or something and they where dogging EVERYTHING, and avoiding everything just perfectly, didn't feel real.

Eventually, you loose interest.

 

What was this topic about again? -

There has actually been a lot of developments regarding dune 2000, the latest of course, being the unification of multiplayer and single player once again, thanks to myself and Funkyfr3sh (among numerous others). Thanks to CnCNet, multiplayer is extremely accessible and easy to setup.

Is everything ok with the site itself right now? I'm having trouble pasting text in reply boxes and some of the functions don't appear to be... well, functional. Linking is one of them, quoting another. I'd have replied in Site Updates but it appears to have been archived.

I think the forum engine might have browser-dependent quirks. As for the archived threads thing, yeah it's pretty inconvenient but Gobalopper says it helps organize the forums much better in fighting spam, and apparently there are no plans to turn off that feature. Individual threads can be un-archived per request to the admins.

Long time, no see... The main page for me is totally stuck. I had to type in the forums address manually.

 

As for new stuff for Dune games, I am really ashamed for pausing my MOD development since last year. I relocated and I am to relocate again. Really not much time for that.

 

But still, I am happy to see people are still lurking around here :)

 

 

edit ---

 

ok, main page is all right, but cannot access forum.dune2k.com

somehow i can acces other parts of the forum but the main page of the forum is unavailable. wtf?

Hmm, it works for me, both by typing the URL and by using the link at the main page.

well I can open up the main page as forum.dune2k.com/index.php

 

if i use only forum.dune2k.com it simply doesn't work. anyway, maybe it's something wrong with my internet. I am in Germany right now.

Weird.

It works perfectly for me with explorer and Firefox. Except for the quotes.

 

Hmnmmm, thought it was just on my workplace, but the forum does seem to be sluggish.

I recently moved the site to a better web server and also upgraded to PHP 5.6. There may have been some hiccups along the way.

I seem to have stumbled onto an issue. I tried downloading the 1.09 Emperor patch today, got a 404 error. So I tried the official map packs, no dice. 404 errors.

 

Are downloads intentionally down across the board, or is something wrong?

He is forum staff. Not a forum admin. He can only fix you, not the forum itself :D
