I think you need more memory for hard drive version as it will load all data at once.

If you mean the standard hard drive installation (not WHDload) it should work on an A1200 as I managed to do so back in the day.

Try to disable CPU caches and set the chipset to Original in the Early Startup (press and hold both left and right mouse buttons when the A1200 is booting).

I second this. Has to be my all time fav game and movie.
Disabling caches and setting OCS/ECS gets alot of games working that wouldn't normally.

TUDE is a great degrader to get these old games to work. Just RTFM before using it . Greater even tool coupled with Reboot&Start !

I first thought it could be a problem because it wasnt made for the A1200 but for the A500 but it shouldnt make a difference really.I have no problems with Dune 2 loading of the HD or any other game for that matter.The game seems to load up fine its just the graphiks what are all muddled up when loaded of the hd... My Amiga is a Amiga Technologies A1200 3.1 with original 135MB HD

It does if you disable CPU caches and set Graphics to ECS.
