Ooh I do like Dune II. It suffers a bit on the megadrive/genesis for not having a mouse like Dos/Amiga but it is simple enough that a controller can just about manage.

Wonder how the extra houses play.

That's pretty neat! Can you tell us a bit about the new houses and units? Did you code in new palace weapons?

Ti_ did all the main coding to add new houses. House Fremen has a new Palace weapon. They can spawn 3 controlable sandworms. House Sardaukar uses the Deathhand like in the original game. The is 1 new winged unit, 1 unique unit for Sardaukar that is a combination of the Siege Tank and the Launcher, 1 boss unit with powerful weapons and armor and 2 new regular units with rocket ammo.

Goddamn. That sounds great!

I'll definitely give this a try when I can.

Gee, I didn't even know there was a Mega Drive version.

Is there some particular reason you didn't go with the MS-DOS version?  I would have thought that might be easier.

Mega Drive version was way more common in Russia than the PC one. Plus it has better graphics and music for my taste.
