  1. I've used a 24" ViewSonic VA2448 since December 2012, works great, zero problems. I also have an Adata SSD. Again no problems. Just because they are cheaper brands it doesn't make them rubbish.
  2. Yes uninstalling the game and reinstalling the game from your RA3 DVD should sort out the problems. Don't forget to patch it with v1.12 http://www.cncnz.com/features/command-conquer-patch-centre/2/
  3. Just tested that, I see what you mean. I think it's something the Chatbox author will have to look at. I will ask them about it. For now if you use the "&" symbol you will just have to fix it up yourself.
  4. Changed the colour of text in some areas from white to a shade of grey. Mostly on the main forum index and the text inside the Post Editor.
  5. 30 ranks is plenty. We worked on this rank system for a few weeks (on and off). @Nmenth finalised the rank titles and counts, @Plokite_Wolf supplied all the images (They are from Tiberium Wars/Kane's Wrath). My part was to remove the old ranks and set up the new ones. I am considering an option for users to earn extra little awards or moved to a special group when the reach a certain positive reputation level. Just an idea.
  6. Yeah I stand corrected. On closer inspection some are not displaying correctly. But viewing their profile page shows they are in the Veteran group. Its a minor thing, not a forum breaking bug.
  7. I've just checked the profiles in the 1500 and 2499 post range. They all have the correct ranks and are in the Veteran Members group. All seems fine to me.
  8. Yes. 2500 is a lot, not many newer members will get there. 1500 is probably a bit high as well, but I see it as a sort of halfway point.
  9. Our forums have seen a lot of changes over the past month. Another of the long overdue changes is an improved ranking system. We have just set up this one. It still continuing with a military theme, but this time we have new look rank icons for each one. [Icon | Number | Rank Title | (Post Count)] 0 Recruit (0) 1 Private (25) 2 Private First Class (50) 3 Lance Corporal (75) 4 Specialist (100) 5 Corporal (130) 6 Staff Sergeant (160) 7 Sergeant First Class (190) 8 Master Sergeant (220) 9 First Sergeant (250) 10 Sergeant Major (300) 11 Command Sergeant Major (350) 12 Warrant Officer (400) 13 Chief Warrant Officer W-2 (450) 14 Chief Warrant Officer W-3 (500) [At 500 content items posted you will be able to set up your own custom member title] 15 Chief Warrant Officer W-4 (580) 16 Chief Warrant Officer W-5 (660) 17 Officer Candidate (740) 18 Second Lieutenant (820) 19 First Lieutenant (900) 20 Captain (1020) 21 Major (1140) 22 Lieutenant Colonel (1260) 23 Colonel (1380) [At 1500 content items posted you will be promoted to the Veteran Members Group] 24 Brigadier General (1500) 25 Major General (1700) 26 Lieutenant General (1900) 27 General (2100) 28 General of the Army (2300) 29 Commander-In-Chief (2500) Share your thoughts, comments and general feedback about our new ranking system here.
  10. Right on time this week, its another edition of C&C Music Monday. And this week's pick is from the C&C Generals soundtrack. It's one of the Chinese themes, "Mother of All Weapons". Composed by Bill Brown. Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  11. Back in February, GVMERS posted a video that looked at what happened to the cancelled Tiberium FPS. Today, they have new Command & Conquer video that dives into the entire franchise. The Command & Conquer franchise helped shape the identity of RTS games during the 1990's and would influence the designs of countless similar strategy titles in later years. Even though the franchise ended with a whimper instead of a bang, it managed to create an indelible impact on the history of videogames. Join the team from GVMERS as they take a look at the rise and fall of Command & Conquer.
  12. The latest release of OpenRA has just release and it's available for download now. This is the most recent stable release, almost half a year has gone by since the stable version. As usual, this new release brings with it changes to the balance of both the Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn mods, as well as a huge number of new and overhauled multiplayer maps. In addition, it contains the following major fixes and features: HiDPI font rendering for players with high resolution displays. Fixes for several multiplayer bugs that could stall or crash games when a player disconnects. The Red Alert “shell map” background is now muted. New behaviour for the Red Alert Gap Generator and Tiberian Dawn Obelisk. Fixes for asset installation on 32 bit operating systems and from the original RA95 CDs. Visit the OpenRA site now for the download.
  13. Added a few new tips to the list above. Marked them with [NEW].
  14. New unfixed bug discovered. If you share a link to another topic or post in your current post a preview box will display, The box is mostly unreadable though. Until this can be fixed please click the "Your link has been automatically embedded. Display as a link instead" prompt that appears at the bottom of the Post Editor box.
  15. Thats great. But it helps if you post what you did so other people who have the same or similar problems can benefit from it as well.
