  1. As per title: I would like to add the general I'm playing as to the Challenge e.g. when I play as the Air Force General, I'll fight myself at one point. Is that possible? Of course it doesn't make any sense from a story point of view, but I think it would be interesting to play the Challenge with mirror matches.
  2. It has some issues due to technical limitations, but I'd say its better in some regards. Units are purchased, not just built (except for the AI, which just spawns them). Support powers work more like they do in the traditional C&C games. The missions are mostly shorter with smaller maps and actually have some variety. It's way better than Tiberium Wars Mobile, and with some refinement could have made for an interesting spin-off title.
  3. It does have skirmish and MP, but the SP is apparently way more popular. I don't have a source, but someone on r/realtimestrategy liked to an interview with one of the devs once where they said that.
  4. I love everything Dune (except for the non-Frank Herbert novels), so colour me psyched.
  5. Just to back this up, IIRC a developer of Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak said that 75%+ of the players never touch the multiplayer component of the game. Generally spoken, there's a lot of games that work well as SP only e.g. who actually played Spec Ops: The Line on MP?
  6. I don't know where this guys got his number from, but he didn't do any proper research. Just do a blank search in the Steam Store, sort the games by user reviews and go to the last page. There's 1,000 with lower scores, mostly zero-effort indie games with Unity Store assets and Steam Greenlight garbage. There's a whole bunch of games with 0% positive reviews. No, C&C4 is neither a masterpiece nor is it a popular game. But one of the top five lowest rated games on Steam? It's nowhere CLOSE to that.
  7. I definitely didn't miss any of the buildings. I've played this map before and placed stealth detection units everywhere to make sure I didn't miss anything.
  8. Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Mobile. For the greater good.
  9. Letterboxing refers to the black bars on a video that is run in a 16:9 windows (in case of Youtube) but doesn't have that aspect ratio. Pillarboxing is the same, except the black bars are on the sides. The footage should have neither and make use of the entire 16:9 window.
  10. And why is the video letter- and pillowboxed? This won't sell the mod. Nevertheless, colour me interested - but not based on this trailer.
  11. Today's gamers? That's how people bought games before information was easily accessible online.
  12. As per title: I'm looking for a batch converter to convert .snd files (used for the FMV audio in C&C4) to a more common audio format like .mp3 or .wav - or anything format that is accepted by video editors. Any suggestions? I tried a number, but .snd is either not supported or the converter is a commerical one (and I would prefer a free one, since I'm only going to sue it this once).
  13. But in this case, it just seems to be the latter. I don't think there's a general issue with that.
  14. And what if, say, a modder create a new tank model for their favourite RTS? Or the developers commissions a third party to create a new tank model for their RTS? There's not much difference here. Selling a mod that used to be free, maybe, but just hiring guys to do work? "Not created by the original developer" is a broad statement. Many, many studios don't have people or manpowers for everything and commission art, animations, model, music, and other stuff all the time. E.g. Eugen (the developers of AoA and War Game) doesn't do any art in-house. Or - since this is a C&C forums - Counterstrike for RA1, which IIRC was made by a British studio, not by Westwood.
  15. Also, that hotkey menu looks horrific.
  16. Global World War? Why not Global International Worldwide World War? Also, "Africa" is a faction? Just Africa in general?
  17. Why bother developing a game that at this point has to be really good to alienate the fans when you have the world's largest digital game shop that generates money with little effort?
  18. Not necessarily. Red logos were also used Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. I expect them to go with a blue one for the third/ninth film.
  19. Allocating resources to specific tasks sounds like a good idea, but I doubt that this will have a great impact (and the article mentions a 2-5% increase). In my experience, the vast majority of games just can't utilise the resources they have properly. I played some Act of Aggression recently, and it's amazing how optimised that game is compared to other titles. Even with a lot of stuff going on, I get 90FPS+ in 1080p and 60FPS in 1440p, which is way better than the performance of, say, Starcraft II.
  20. But not going topless as a female in Tennessee. We can't have that!
  21. Isn't the Service Pack just the collection of all the updates anyway?
  22. Come on, everyone knows Yuri is Romanian!
  23. Churchill was just and MP when Britain declared war on Germany. Where did he get these mystical powers to order other MPs to be arrested from? As someone who's currently online via a European server: The video is watchable and not "banned". Also, Jeff, the guy who owns that channel calls himself a "national socialist" in his Twitter account description. You are linking to a literal Nazi's channel here. Someone who thinks gassing six million Jews is cool. Do you really think Jewish conspiracies are the "impartial truth"?
