Don't think there is any other thread about Dune Dynasty here on Vogons.
It seems the SourceForge SVN source code version has significant additions compared to the last official release. The last official release being v1.5.7 of august 2013. It is work done in 2013 to 2015 by the same author; Mr. Wang.
I managed to compile the SVN version. Pleased to say it works fine so far. Do appreciate the added options and fixes for Skirmish games. The added multiplayer support has not been tested by me.
Some days ago, I tried to contact Mr. Wang through his SourceForge email, to ask about the SVN source status. I also tried his "dynasty" account here. So far I have not received any reply.
Anyways, If there is interest I will upload the binaries of Dune Dynasty 1.5.7 SVN (2015) to some place.
PS: In another thread there was someone trying to see if it could run on Windows 98. My testing says it won't. For one: The allegro 5.0.10 dll (2013), as compiled with older MinGW 4.5.2, tries to call SHgetfolderpathA ... and fails.
