  1. So do you ever get songs stuck in your brain? You can't stop listening to them? Ever since seeing Logan earlier this month I can't stop listening to this one.... Just as well is a good song
  2. 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.
  3. CNCNZ.com reaches its 20th year online covering C&C games and the community. More details will be announced as the day gets closer.
  4. I hear more and more stories about bull**** copyright claims on YouTube. The whole situation getting out of control. AngryJoe has made video about it in the past. Such as this one...
  5. A version of the trailer everyone can watch... So I'm guessing this Star Trek is set in the rebooted/alternate "Kelvin" timeline.
  6. Some cool stuff in there. I've often thought of hunting down a lot stuff like this myself but I have no where to store or display any of it.
  7. C&C Music Monday is back again this week with another fan made remix of a classic Command & Conquer song. This week we feature a remix of "Valves" by Matt Majcan. The original is of course by Frank Klepacki. Also note, I did not have the time to give this video the full C&C Music Monday intro this week. Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  8. It has been announced on the Official Tiberium Alliances Site that new community forums will be opened for all fans of the browser based Command & Conquer game. Here is the announcement.... So just as it says you can expect to see these new forums on the 15th of May.
  9. Great stuff. Keep posting them
  10. We haven't had a topic like this for while. So what is you're connection speed to the Internet? Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and run the test, share the results. My VDSL Connection:
  11. So who is opting in and taking the free upgrade to Windows 10 when it releases on the 29th of July?
  12. Some great promotion for the team at W3D Hub. They have been featured in a large article on Kotaku UK. Despite a few inaccuracies that are mentioned in the article, it's great to the Command & Conquer name on a major gaming publication. The article talks about the history of C&C Renegade and W3D Hub's current projects. Here's a sample. You can read the full article on Kotaku UK for more. Also check out the post on the W3D Hub forums.
  13. C&C Music Monday returns after a week off with something different. Over the coming weeks we are going to be featuring awesome remixes and covers of classic Command & Conquer songs. This week we kick things off with "Hell March to the Apocalypse" by The Tiberian Sons. This is one super heavy cover of Frank Klepacki's original work. Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  14. Earlier today the W3D Hub team released version 0.7.2 of the W3D Hub Launcher. Featuring many under the hood improvements to the server listings to make them more reliable. The W3D Hub Launcher is your way to play the likes of Red Alert: A Path Beyond and Tiberian Sun: Reborn. Visit the W3D Hub site now to get the updated launcher.
  15. Its taken longer than it should have, but the main site is now updated to match the new look colours introduced during the forum upgrade at the end of March. The next job is to get the news posts displaying again. Plus fix some minor colour errors around the site.
  16. I've used many Adata products over the years. The SSD of course, an SD card for a Sony Cybershot camera. An old computer I had years ago used Adata RAM. Never had an issue with any of them.
  17. Can't really change that. This because the code the creates the colours for the user group colour essentially overrides the the default link colour and hover styles. It was the same on the IPB3 forums as well.
  18. I had a topic like this that I started at the time of our last major from transition. As I've mentioned, I'm still tidying up and fixing colours around the forum theme. So I will keep a running list here of changes I make (from today). It's mostly for me so I don't loose track of what I'm working on. Also look out for another topic that I will be posting soon to highlight some of the cool new features we have on this version of IPS. There is all sorts of quirky little things that you may not have discovered yet Items Fixed/Changed/Added Fixed many of the blue link styles, removed underline formatting. Changed the emoticon icon in the chatbox, it's no longer the big ugly yellow icon. Unread content should now display as bold text. Made the small pagination in forum view (1 2 3 4 5 etc....) easier to read. They will highlight when you hover over the row. Fixed reputation point counter box. You should see a bit more separation in forum and topic view. Basically darkened the line the provides the separation. Fixed the C&C Profile Icons. You will have edit your profile and reselect your favorite game though. Added dark border to quoted text boxes. Change the tag colours to a lighter grey. Restored bottom banner ad. Moved "Leaderboard" and "Chatbox" menu links to "Browse" submenu. One small change to the how the Post Editor works when you press the ENTER key. It will now start a new paragraph as the default action. If you want to the cursor to move to the next line (as in not start a new paragraph) simple press SHIFT + ENTER. Fixed the Post Editor colours. Especially for the tag entry field. Text is now readable when you enter the name of a C&C game. All C&C games have been stored in the tag system. So just start typing a name of a C&C game and the correct one will pop up in drop down menu. Fixed colours for the small reputation counters on each post. Removed the white backgrounds from avatar images that have transparency. Fixed a bug that prevent user hovercards from displaying on certain text links. Made some layout changes to the main index. Member Stats, Forum Stats, Who's Online are now on the right sidebar. Added the Popular Contributors section to the right sidebar. New look rank system set up. More details here. 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. To Do List New look for CNCNZ.com team badges. Current Bugs 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.
  19. If your new to using Worldbuilder, meaning you never used the C&C Generals/Zero Hour Worldbuilder, it is recommended that you start by reading through the detailed help file the is included with the download of the C&C 3 Worldbuilder. To access this detailed help file browse to the following folder on your computer, assuming you installed C&C 3 to is default location and you have already downloaded and installed the C&C 3 Worldbuilder: There is also the C&C 3 Worldbuilder read me file that has some important info as well:
  20. 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.
  21. 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/
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
