Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty (a.k.a. Dune II: Battle for Arrakis) is the second entry in the Dune series and it's one of the most influential video games of all time.
It was developed by Westwood Studios and published by Virgin Games in 1992. Dune II is thought of by many as the first real-time strategy game, since for the first time a player was able to control and micromanage several units and resources without a turn-based time structure.
Despite the name, Dune II is not a sequel. The two games were developed independently by two different studios. In fact the adventure game by Cryo Interactive was planned to be canceled by Virgin, to release Westwood Studio's strategy game instead. But in the end they decided to keep both games and one of them was renamed Dune II: The Battle For Arrakis.
Though set in the ‘Dune’ universe, the game’s plot is only loosely connected to any of the books by Frank Herbert. For those unfamiliar with the saga, the game takes place on a desert planet called Arrakis. Arrakis’ value lies in a spice that can only be found in its sandy dunes. This spice is the basis for space travel so high production is a must. In order to increase productivity the Emperor pits 3 powerful families against one another. Though peaceful at first, the rivalry soon turns sour resulting in armed combat between the families. You get your choice of which family you want to control. Each one has their own special unit that can unleash a unique ‘palace effect’ later on in the game.The other families’ militias aren’t the only threat as the planet is home to deadly sandworms that can swallow even your largest units whole. Of course the sandworms reside in the spice fields, so harvesting spice can attract them. You’ve got to fight the other families while producing spice without losing valuable units to sandworms. Can you handle all that?
Striking a balance between complexity and innovation, Dune II was not only a commercial and critical success, it also created a pattern that Command & Conquer, Age of Empires, StarCraft, would follow.
The game won “Strategy Game of the Year” in 1993. It also landed at #70 on the “150 Best Games of All Time” list and at #30 on the “100 Most Important PC Games of the Nineties” list. Check out this godfather of RTS games and see where it all began.

Dark screen on windows 10.How can i fix it?
Consegui jogar no PlayOnLinux, emulando o Windows Xp, escolhemos 1 entre 5 casas, eu escolhi Atreides, estagnei na fase 5 onde é preciso sustentar uma base por 30 minutos. Dica p/ cheat: é possível alterar o valor do $ utilizando editor hexadecimal.
Not for DOS :-(
Supported OS: Win98, WinXP, Win2000(+SP3).

Also, we can see in one screen shot that there are 'pink' coloured forces; remembering back to Dune ][, the Padishah Emperor's Sardaukar military -- I believe! -- featured in the game in pink colouring...
It may just be that the doubled-Atreides flag was only a 'place-holder' for what would eventually be a pink Sardaukar flag..?!? I can only guess...
It would make sense, though, that the (sandy) FREMEN flag is above (near) the Atreides flag, and the Sardaukar flag would probably go above (near) the Harkonen flag, so the upper 'twin' Atreides flag would be replaced.. maybe.

IF you look closely at the 5 flags, you will see that the (blue) Atreides flag is 'repeated' a second time; in keeping with Dune ][, you also have the usual Red for Harkonen, Green for Ordos; and then, if you look VERY closely at the 'SAND-coloured' flag, featuring the Shai-Hu'lud, it should be pretty clear that this represents the FREMEN (on Arrakkis).
:D :D :D :D :D
House Of ATREIDES, House Of Harkonen, House Of ORDOS - these I recognize. What could the other 'add-on/moded' factions be? Goa'Uld?
Still, might be interesting, since I didn't even knew, until today, 31st January 2019, there was a DUNE IV ( I thought there was only up till DUNE III (DUNE II modded)
