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!

Thank you for this thorough tutorial!  I've successfully followed all of your steps except for the enjoy the game part, lol.  I've been able to launch the game and get to the "start" option, but when I select any house, I get an installation error.  For example, I select a mission for Atreides and select "start" and get "please reinstall file not found_a1v2.mis."  The cd is still in the drive, and I verified that the file did copy to c:\games\dune\missions.  I am running windows 7 home premium 64bit.

Many many thanks for doing this brilliant bit of work!.Everything went really smoothly, Windows needed to download and install two extra items (sorry, I don't remember which) and I had to try one or two resolutions before everything worked properly. But now it's like the Goodl Old Days again! I am soooooooooo happy. Keep safe (from a sunny England in sort of lockdown).

Hi, I'm trying to install on Windows 10 from an original Dune 2000 disc.

 

I've followed all of the steps but one (I'll explain) and have been able to at least start the game up, but as soon as I try to start a new game, I get the message

'this is a spawned game. Please insert the game CD and restart'

or something to that effect, even though I have the disc in the tray. I reckon that the problem is with the Funky Fresh Dune 2000 file, as I can't install that properly. I've tried several times but just get the following:

'could not install as file mss32.dll could not be found. Installing again may resolve this issue'.

Again, this isn't copied out verbatim, but that's the jist of it. Has anyone else experienced issues with the funky fresh files? Can anyone suggest a way around this?

Cheers in advance,

C.

I don't know exactly how this works or the steps to do, but look in this post:
https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/26900-dune-2000-multi-languagepack-online/

It is sais it includes Italian, so maybe you can use it.

Hello Ivan, you can get it to work like this:

Do the same procedure as the first post, but use a 1.06 patch with Italian settings (instead of the US one), this one: https://forum.dune2k.com/files/file/130-dune-2000-106-patch-italian/

After that make sure there is a file named "UI_ITA.R16" in the "Data" folder. If there is only the file "UI_ENG.R16", you can copy this file and rename it to "UI_ITA.R16".

I tried this and so far the game seems to work good.

Proof:
