Shai-Hulud 2000 Map Editor - Getting it to work for Windows 9x (in vid: Win98)
Hey guyz! This editor is for terrain editing, it DOES NOT support adding buildings/units, however you can do it buyt since you have the D2K+ Toolkit with user-friendly editor , theres no need. Though the D2K+ editor doesnt support terrain editing very well, so for terrain editing pro mappers use shai-hulud ;p FAQ: Q: Feda got mad? He has win98?????? OMG!!!!1111!!!1 A: Nope, thats a Virtual Machine. Now why I'm making this tutorial? Well, lemme just kinda paste it from FED2K cuz im lazy to write it again. Beware, wall of copy-pasted text inc! "Well I got a few PMs on YT about some .dll error while installing Shai-hulud on windows 7 which prevents the program to work properly. After ppl download and put that .dll in the system directory, some of them got problems with the windows 7 genuine bullshit that you all know getting that nasty black background & activation messages ..probably cuz of pirated OS, idk, idc.. Some of them got it after the next reboot, others got it after some days. Just to make sure, I'll show how to get it working on a virtual pc cuz u cant break anything there since its a virtual pc " Hope it says all. Here's the shai-hulud + .dll file you need for Windows 9x (95, 98, ME) in case of errors. If you dont trust or dont wanna get this, visit http://forum.dune2k.com/files/file/169-sh2kzip/ Shai-Hulud + Win9x dll download pack: http://www.mediafire.com/?2c2btzqxuedpk9m Please note: 1)Report any dll errors you may get, i cant recommend you wont get any errors since we arent using same virtual hard disk. 2)My download pack is optionally, but recommended. 3)PLEASE, PAY ATTENTION to the copying tileset images part of the video 5:54 and listen carefully - that part is the most reported problem and its so easy to fix. 4)If the program doesnt start of while clicking new map the new map doesnt show up or program crashes, paste the .dll in the system directory (C:\Windows\System\ - for Win9x, C:\WINNT\system32 - Windows 2000, NT or C:\Windows\System32 - WinXP,Vista,7) 5)Win 98 ftw! Any questions? Feel free to post a comment.
Shai-Hulud Dune2k Map Editor - Basic settings & menus
You know that feeling, when ur sick but you wanna make a video, with all your heart... Well I do, this is the result :D sorry if on some parts im like thinking to something else or I cough. Hard to concentrate when ill :D This covers some basic options that Shai-Hulud has. Dedicated to new users, who never saw or used shai-hulud before. Remember, Shai-Hulud is a terrain editing program, NOT a mission editor.
Shai-Hulud Dune2k Map Editor - Smoothing Dirt Edges
This tutorial covers that nasty & time consuming part of getting smooth edges when placing your dirt patches (dirt = that buildable place). Lol, at 0:48 until 1:34, login fail :D you can skip that part ^^
Shai-Hulud 2000 Map Editor - Copy-Pasting terrain from other maps
This is the best feature that this program has! Its just AWESOME. If you don't know how to use this feature and you decide to skip this tutorial, you will probably fail your life :p Lemme explain the last part because it may sound confusing: Ironically, if you get that error message about worm count & shit, the program actually SAVED your map properly. If you don't see that message when saving, and YOU DID NOT GET THE REQUIRED WORM COUNT & PLAYER START POS then the program didnt save the map or corrupted it. Thats why i never add the worms until i finish all my map, so that I know if the program starts being retarded or not :)
Activating your Dune2000 Skirmish Maps - The Automatically activation using Shai-Hulud
Alright, lemme tell u a secret... I tried doing this thing on Windows NT based operating systems (XP and 7) and it didnt work. Now i just see that it works on Windows 9x family. So i dont know, all ppl i asked said they failed to activate on Win NT-based systems so I guess its bugged for that or something, but it definitely works for Win 9x. Just in case it works for you = this method is way faster than manual activation but may be bugged and fail. Next tutorial will be about manual activating which works 100%.
Dune 2000 Tutorial - Activating Maps Manually, using the String Table Editor/UIB Editor
This may not be so "user friendly" since it actually requires you to search for some entries then manually type stuff but I can guarantee it's safer, so I recommened using this method instead of Shai-Hulud's. Please pay attention to the entries: if you are running 1.06 version of the game, you have to scroll down and find the 1.06 map entries in text.uib, otherwise the map will not be activated properly. I have explained it in the tutorial, just pay attention :)
Dune 2000 Mission Editor Tutorial - Adding Skirmish AI in a campaign mission
Hey guys, today I'll show you how to add skirmish AI to a specific player in your mission. This is not limited to AI only, it works for humans as well and to prove it I added skirmish AI to the human player in harkonnen mission 8. Watch each step carefully, and if you have no idea how to work with exporting/importing AI segments then make sure you watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab7d2VkMw-w You can be a lot more creative I guess and find a very cool & fun way of using this, I'm sure ;) For example, that's how I made mission 4 of the mercenary campaign where you had to protect harkonnens while they were building up a base :)
How to install the High-Resolution patch - Dune 2000 Tutorial
UPDATE: There is a much better and user friendly hi-res patch out, it's included in the cncnet 5 version of Dune 2000 (which gives you multiplayer support via CnCNet 5 lobby, very easily to play online). Download it here: http://cncnet.org/dune-2000. To change the res, all you need to do is either use the Dune2000Config tool or do it manually in the .ini file. Alright guys, all those ppl who have been almost desperately asking me about the progress of the hi-res patch, be happy: IT IS COMPLETE! Though, people with german versions may still have some problems with it, so I would recommend to play it on the english UK/US 1.06 version of the game. YEAH, ONLY 1.06 WORKS so all those ppl who still use 1.02 or whatever, it is time to upgrade ;) According to the readme you need a vanilla (original) version of dune without any other mods, so it would be better to follow me and install everything by scratch. Just make sure you follow my steps and everything should be working just fine. NOTE: Please install any campaigns before you apply the hi-res patch because the patch is adding some sand or something in the first two missions. Why? Because the maps are very small and the game crashes on resolutions higher or equal to 1024 x 720 (if I'm not wrong). Download hi-res patch from here: http://d2kplus.com/hires.php FED2K Forum discussion topic: http://forum.dune2k.com/topic/19636-dune2k-high-resolution/page-25 If you liked it, please LIKE, subscribe and maybe even leave a comment :D If you have any questions, feel free to ask below or on FED2K (if you are registered)
TibEd Dune 2000 - Installing TibEd & getting an idea about the menus/features
Welcome to the Dune 2000 TibEd tutorials. If you are wondering what is TibEd, it is the program used by dune modders to mod the game: changing units' attributes, buildings etc. Right now it is probably the only viable editor for Dune 2000. TibEd is available for free at http://tibed.net/. http://d2kplus.com/ - The Home of Dune 2000 Modding - mvi and Feda

TibEd Dune 2000 - Unit Section: General Tab #2
This tutorial is covering the General 2 tab, which allows you to change the unit's sprite (how the unit looks) and a bunch of other settings which can crash your game easily if not used properly. You will probably not really need most of them so u can focus on the ones I covered in the video.
TibEd Dune 2000 Tutorial - Sounds, frame info and Manual view
A short tutorial explaining the other 3 tabs from the Unit section. Not really useful tabs for this game in its current modding-capability state.

Dune 2000 Online - Alternatives to Hamachi: Tunngle
If you just can't get Hamachi working (which happened to a few people for some reason) then you can try using Tunngle. The main difference is the player count, as Tunngle doesn't really have many Dune2k players. Excuse me for the interruptions and crap that happened on the virtual pc. And yeah, I kinda suck at solitaire lol ;) http://d2kplus.com/ - The Home of Dune 2000 modding: mvi and Feda
