High Resolution Patch

d2k_hires

Author: N.Kindt, D2K Sardaukar and MVI
Please read the readme files carefully, and also the notes below.

The patch is finally ready, and the bugs like crashes in starport menu are gone now. You can finally play Dune 2000 in hi-res, which makes selecting units and pending to the map a lot easier. Please note: in order to get both the sub-houses fix and the mission select mod working with the script, you should install both BEFORE you apply the high-res patch. It is also advised (according to the readme) to install the patch on a fresh copy of Dune 2000, without old hi-res patches or unfinished mods. The vanilla (original CD) version of Dune 2000 and the patched-for-multiplayer version (with Windows 7 fixes & IPX fixes) are supported. As of 1.4.0 there is also support for undoing the patch.

Update: 1.4.1 is now available, which adds acceptable 8-bit support.


Editor Note: Please note that this does not work with the CnCNet patch or the GruntMods Edition, as they use a newer incompatible version of the patching framework, which includes a newer version of the High Resolution patch that works with online multiplayer.

Mission Editor

HuGbu

Mod Type: Mod Tool

Author: MVI

Feature Set:
* Supports editing tech levels, starting money, index allocations, diplomacy, tileset references and time limit
* Also supports modifying, adding and deleting of events, conditions and event-condition mappings
* Supporting AI segment exporting and importing (via new .misai files)
* As of 0.3 supports preset building types (as well as unit types since 0.1)

Future Work Will Include:
* Colored diplomacy icons for the three diplomacy types
* Support for unused event types, current build only works with event types present in the campaign mission files. However I believe there are a number of other event types that are possible, this will require more research as there are no working examples of how to use these event types present in the game’s mission files.

Special thanks to jbsplash, DaxxXyrax, Devasta and Gruntlord6.
Please note: This is an Alpha release, it is unlikely to be stable and may suffer from bugs. I recommend you back up your mission files/installation before editing.

Map Renderer

sBmIVCG

Mod Type: Mod Tool

Author: MVI

The Dune 2000 Map Renderer allows the user to load a map file and export a PNG image displaying its terrain, spice, buildings and starting units.

The Map Renderer is bundled with a folder containing PNG images of each tileset and will automatically pick the correct tileset image for a loaded map if there is a matching mission file at the same location as the map file. If you modify the game’s tileset or add a new one, you will need to make the corresponding changes to the tool’s tileset folder.

The map renderer is not intended to replicate the in-game look perfectly and there are some relatively unimportant differences in how the game and the Map Renderer display: walls do not perfectly align; spice has hard edges and buildings do not display the concrete beneath them.
