Dune2 Amiga 68k Port (OpenDune)

I have recently updated my OpenDune port to include some extra enhancements and fix up a few minor bugs.

For anyone with an 060 this will be the best way to play the classic Dune 2 on an Amiga

[ Show youtube player ]

Requirements:

1) An AGA/RTG Amiga with a fast 68060 processor
2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) A copy of the PC game data files (must be the correct version!)


Features:

* 256 colors
* MIDI support
* AHI Sound support
* Fullscreen and window mode support
* 2x Scale filter and magnification filter (increases resolution)

I'll upload the latest fixes to AmiNet

Cool! I'll check this out, but how fast is a fast 060? I tried the last version with my Blizzard 1260@66mhz CV3D in ZII mode and it was a slideshow.

I don't have a real Amiga to test with unfortunately but a few people have told me it runs fine at 60 MHz.

You have to make sure you are running v4.18 of AHI and that you are using a 'fast' mode.

Obviously using the scaler or zoom level will slow it down (config file). Also look at reducing the frames down to say 15.
