Greeting's, I need some advice: I am trying to play Dune 2000 on Windows XP, but I cannot get passed the first stage. Everytime I complete it and the game goes back to the "Map" I have no new options and I have not conquered any territory, and therefore have to complete the first stage over and over......
I thought that the files might be read only, but I have checked and everything looks fine.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance.

Hi roughboy79, I read this post and saw you were looking for a way to get Dune 2000 working.
I Can't directly answer your question, but I can share how I eventually got Dune 2000 working.
It involved setting up a virtual Windows 95 machine in Linux, however you can also get the virtualisation software for Windows, so feel free to give it a try.
Hope you see this post, see you asked it a while ago........
Here is how I eventually got it running, properly:
I Eventually got Dune 2000 to run, properly.
No bugs, not to fast, no sound or scrolling anomalies, no hanging every couple of seconds.
I Tried it under wine, but it ran too fast, the scrolling was way too fast, even if you switch the scroll speed way down and it hanged every couple of seconds.
I Also tried in an Oracle VirtualBox Running XP and Windows 98SE, with the same issues,
I Eventually Got Dune 2000 working in openSUSE 12.2 64 bit, under a Oracle VirtualBox, running Windows 95.
Here is what you'll need: 1. Windows 95 Install Disk 2. Windows 98SE Install Disk 3. SciTech Display Driver, which can be downloaded from: 4. https://www.dropbox....ay-doctor-7.iso 5. Dune 2000 Disk
Setup a VirtualBox with the following settings: Hard Drive 4GB Memory 512MB Enable IO APIC 1CPU Enable PAE/NX No CPU Throttling Sound Set to emulate Sound Blaster 16
Do Not enable: VT-x/AMD-V or Nested Paging
Under the Display settings under Oracle VirtualBox, I set the share memory size to 32MB, I also enabled 3D & 2D Acceleration.
Start the system with the Windows 98SE Disk. (The reason for this is that the 98SE Disk is bootable, but the 95 Disk isn't) Select Boot computer with cd-rom support. go: D: cd WIN98 fdisk create 4GB Primary Partition and set it as active. (It should automatically set it as active) After creating the partition, the system will reboot.
Boot with the 98 Disk again & select boot system with cd-rom support.
d: cd WIN98 format c: /S /S to copy system files
Insert Windows 95 Disk into CD-Rom.
c: md WIN95 d: cd WIN95 copy D:\WIN95\*.* C:\WIN95 /Y c: cd WIN95 setup
Install Windows 95 Install SciTech Display Driver. (The SciTech Download is an iso, so you can mount it like you would a cd-rom drive. Enable SciTech Display Driver, enable driver only, do not enable any extended features.
Also after I copy the files where do I paste them? How does this process work? Can anyone give a more detailed description?

I have the same problem, google brought me here. I tried an update to V1.06 but it doesn't help either. I have the same problem as the guy here above, splitted screen.

This reply may be coming a little late, but here goes anyway... Go into the main directory where you installed Dune. Its usually: c:\westwood\dune2000\ Right click the "dune2000.exe" file and select "Properties". You should see an option TAB called "Compatibility". Click on that. Under the words "Compatibility Mode" there should be a small box. Click on it so you leave a tick. You should now see the words "Windows 95" become bold. Change it to "Windows 98/Windows ME". Now check the boxes below for running it at 256 colors and 640x480. Lastly, click on apply and you shouldn't have any problems. I hope the above has helped. Best regards, Ken
