How to install Dune 2000 from CD and bring up-to-date

Recommended Posts

This topic is for all the people who Google about this game and can't get it to install.

I assume you have the English Dune 2000 CD (or .ISO file) with version 1.


You will need to download:
- Universal Extractor. link or portable version
- Dune 2000 1.06 patch. link or from this forum
- FunkyFresh adjusted DUNE2000.EXE link
- FunkyFresh Dune 2000 Config tool. link

Install the Universal Extractor (v1.6.1).
Run it and select the SETUP.Z archive from the CD at \DUNE2000\SETUP\
Change the extraction location to, for example, your standard games folder.
If asked, pick the i3comp extraction method and press OK. This should give 2 folder; API and DUNE
Go to the newly created DUNE\Data\ folder and paste from the CD these folders: MISSIONS, MUSIC and MOVIES
Now run d2k106us.exe (to update the game). You need to manually paste in the DUNE folder location to unzip to.
If you did it correctly the DUNE folder will now contain a D2KPATCH_README_106.TXT file.
Lastly paste the FunkyFresh files into the DUNE folder and overwrite the EXE file.

Start the Dune 2000 config tool and select a higher resolution if desired.
Fire up DUNE2000.EXE and enjoy the game!
