''Dune II'' was originally released in 1992 for DOS. It was available in english, french, german, italian and spanish (the last two only for text, not digitized voices). It was one of the first games to support Roland Sound Canvas (General MIDI), and one of the first to play digital samples over a Soundblaster card. Unfortunately it did not support two sound devices, so the player only had the choice between digitized speech (which is helpful in gameplay, since approaching enemy units are announced) and better music. A patch called the "sound fix" was later released to solve this inconvenience with an updated setup program and support for the Creative Wave Blaster, though it was only ever beta.
