I bought a copy of Dune II on CD-ROM from Ebay recently, and tried to install it on my 386. When you run the EXE file the first time, it creates a directory on C: for saved games. When you run it a second time, it displays a menu with fancy graphics that lets you play the game, or read the docs, etc. If you click the Play button, it just complains that it couldn't print. (Apparently, the menu has mixed up the (P)lay command with a (P)rint command that is present on the doc reader pages.) I have not found a way around this by pressing other keys or clicking in different places, navigating elsewhere and back, etc.
The disc contains a folder that looks to use some kind of proprietary container format for its archive files, and there are no other executable files anywhere, so just copying the game to the HDD does not seem to be an option.
Did they actually release a version of this on CD that is totally broken and unplayable? Anybody familiar with this release and ever get it working some other way?
