Description [fr]

Un moteur compatible avec les données du jeu "Dune II : La Bataille d'Arrakis" (de Westood studios), par David Wang (dswang).

Dune Dynasty est une amélioration technique (dérivée du projet OpenDUNE, dans le Bottin) du moteur de "Dune II : La Bataille d'Arrakis" ("Dune II - The Building of a Dynasty", prédécesseur de Dune 2000) avec lequel il est bien-sûr compatible, l'un des 1er RTS de l'histoire, basé sur l'univers de science-fiction du roman éponyme. L'intérêt de ce moteur : multi-plateforme, graphisme haute résolution avec zoom et brouillard de guerre, sons multicanaux de qualité (MIDI et émulation Ad-Lib), sélection de groupes d'unités, des animations plus douces des unités, une IA améliorée, des corrections de bogues, ...

Un Dune classique. Des contrôles modernes.

Dune Dynasty est la poursuite du classique jeu de stratégie en temps réel Dune II de Westwood Studios. Ce n'est pas un remake. Il s'appuie sur le moteur du jeu original, ayant fait l'objet d'une rétro-ingénierie par le projet OpenDUNE.

Dune Dynasty est sous licence GNU General Public License version 2.0.

Description [en]

Classic Dune. Modern Controls.

Dune Dynasty is a continuation of the classic real-time strategy game Dune II by Westwood Studios. It is not a remake. It builds upon the original game engine as reverse-engineered by the OpenDUNE project.

Dune Dynasty is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2.0.


Custom campaigns

Dune Dynasty can play fan-made campaigns such as Super Dune II Classic, Stefan Hendriks' Atreides Campaign, and Dune 2 eXtended. These should be placed in the subdirectories inside the campaign/ directory. Click the "The Building of a Dynasty" subtitle to switch between campaigns.

You can also create your own campaigns. A campaign should consist of a META.INI file, a REGIONX.INI file for each playable House, where X is the first letter of the House name, and a complete set of scenarios for each House, named SCENX001.INI through SCENX022.INI. See Stefan Hendriks' Atreides Campaign (shac/) as a simple example.

Each campaign can also contain custom balance tweaks, specified in PROFILE.INI and HOUSE.INI. Please refer to the sample files in the campaign directory for more infomation.

Finally, the scenarios can either be distributed as loose INI files or as a single PAK file. Data stored in PAK files must be listed in META.INI. See MrFlibble's Alternative Scenarios (mfas/) as a simple example of scenarios stored in a PAK file.
