    Wouldn't it be cool if someone could port / recreate the classic dos game, Dune 2??? I loved that game so much.

    They actually did a remake on PC a few years ago. It was called Dune 2000. they revamped the graphics a little and added video cut scenes but otherwise, it was pretty much the same game.

    It was one of my favorite game at the time but they would have to revamp the interface quite a bit to make me play it again. In those days, you could only select 1 unit at a time. Ahhh. the good old days.

    My favourite team was House Atreides because of their sonic tanks. Gotta find that sound effect.

    yeah I know, I had all three versions of the game (dune 2, 2000, and Emperor). Oh the memories.

    Well I think Dune2 is now OpenSource and you can download something like DOSBox (Dos emulator) to run it on.

    I still have Dune2 around here somewhere, but I think the original C&C is the best game WestWood ever made. I still play it on my PowerBook G4.
