My mouse moves to the second monitor and keeps minimizing the game
You can't do anything in the game because the mouse doesn't work

JACKK3000 solution wasn't working for me

What worked was:
Just download w7ddpatcher, patch to the Dune.exe: no more color problems

See that is what they looked like in the game and it is PRISTESS NOT PRINCESS and the male fly the females do not also the wing commander kilrathi females are the most realistic feline females in any computer game that is actually what an Anthromorphic female feline should look like but i do not think a lot of people would like to see Shema(from Quest for Glory)with so many well what ever there called

Look up Kilrathi on the web site

Oh that is funny and i found the joke on the cover of the comic it is Mika's Fighter being a Wing Commander Fan my self that was the first thing i saw and it totally makes sense because Wing Commander was so popular and this was in space there no WAY he could not do that With her being a Lynx and well looks just like a kilrathi female but with out six um well heh heh heh what are those called(sorry watched the third Austin Powers film yesterday that satellite sene titans -an and the almost like a puppet theater one(correction INAPROPERET puppet theater)are the funniest in the films)Well just two and the Drathi like fighter plus the costume is funny and if you look at the cover of the comic and the cover of the new Dune movie well looks the resemblance is uncanny And the the movie didnt even come out at that time so that is either a strange cowinceadince or Prophetic

No it is OK and it is in an Anthro Galaxy where the People are like Animals or the Animals are like People it is actually Pretty good and as far as i can tell is getting popular (still no Wikipedia page yet though) so here's the link for the Comic and here is a Funny Pic with one of the characters for it Read only DO NOT FOR ANY REASON USE THE LINK but here is the link for the Pic

Wow sounds just like almost like Dune but lizards and who are the good guys canines? felines? and how do you find is it vulger or crude or any thing like that

Master 001 2022-07-31 0 point

Wow it took me 2 weeks to finish that book 3 days (I read your Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire comment) if you like this you will love this Comic called "Lancer Knights of Fenris" and if the Lizard Guys are Harkonnens and the good Guys are Atriadies (OK I don't Know how you spell it) then you almost have dune right there.

I just love Dune and here's the story of how i got interested in it: First i got some of the games(Dune and other from here)then Dad had to go on a work trip to Austria and when looking at the movie list(the new movie list the other ones where crappy)He found the new Dune what great luck when he came home we watched(on cineplex well bout on there it wosent old enough to rent a great stroke of luck) it and was really good then bout the Book for my birthday and came the day before and just finished it the day before yesterday and boy is this game different from the book. Oh right this is from the TV show i never watched

JACKK3000 you are a legend, mate.
By the way, if you have trouble downloading the patch from by clicking on it, copy and paste the link in your browser. It downloaded it for me.

I know it's kind of a noob thing, but I thought I'd share.

You can find some info here, together with patched dune.exe file which removes issue with graphic colors issue -

I can't guarantee the game will work for everyone, but this is what helped me (tested on Windows 7, with Radeon FX570, used Modern Installer instead of ISO):

1. Install the game and also nGlide 3Dfx emulation once asked during installation.
2. Download from forum:
3. Copy from file Dune.exe and replace the original Dune.exe in DxWnd/FHD folder
4. Open dgVoodooCpl.exe inside DxWnd/FHD folder and under DirectX tab check Disable and passthru to real DirectX
5. Open VideoCfg.exe and set Colors to 16 bits
6. Run the game with Dune.exe inside DxWnd/FHD folder

It fixes the colors, but according the forum mentioned above there are still some flashing polygons in the narrator's room/cinematic.

I hope this will help someone at least.
