Overview:

Amiga 68k port of OpenDUNE.

OpenDUNE is an open source re-creation of the popular game "Dune II",
originally made by Westwood Studios, and released by Virgin Entertainment.
It attempts to re-create the original game and apply modern technology to it
to allow it to be run natively on most operating systems.


Requirements:

1) An 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:

 * RTG SDL port (256 colors)
 * MIDI support (GM/MT-32)
 * AHI Sound support
 * Fullscreen and window mode support
 
 
Configuration Options:

The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
You must run OpenDUNE from the Workbench, running from the Shell is not
supported.
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
The default game data install directory is 'Games:OpenDUNE/data'.
If you decide to use a different game data directory then you'll need to
update the 'opendune.ini' file to match.
You will need to install the CAMD library if you want to use an external MIDI
device.
You need to enable your CAMD MIDI device using the 'opendune.ini' file.
The mouse will automatically lock (Press CTRL-F10 to unlock).


Performance Considerations:

1) If you have a Blizzard/Apollo you should really be using BlizKick/RemApollo
   to get most speed out of your Amiga.
2) Fast File System is actually not, use PFS3 instead.
3) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
   slower.
4) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will be very slow.
5) Increasing the screen zoom factor will slow down the game.


Limitations:

1) None
