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originally made by Westwood Studios, and released by Virgin Entertainment.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.
2) 68060 processor or better.
3) 64 MB of RAM.
4) AHI installed and configured (see links section below).
5) CAMD library installed and configured for native MIDI playback (see links
   section below).
6) 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 'closewb' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
When running from the Shell you must specify a stack of at least 300,000.
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 you should really be using BlizKick, Apollo users
   should be using RemApollo.
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) Increasing the screen zoom factor will slow down the game.
5) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will be slower.


Limitations:

1) None.
