  1. That generalization is not entirely true. The Intel X99 platform contains 6, 8 and 10 core CPU's that are great at "doing multiple things at the same time". An 8-core i7-6900k beats a R7 1800X in certain tasks and the R7 1800X beats a i7-6900k in certain other tasks The Ryzen CPU's are great value for money in multi-threaded workloads such as virtual machines, software compiling, servers and video and photo editing while the i7-7700k is a better gaming CPU due to higher instructions per clock and higher frequency as games barely use beyond 4-cores save for a few titles. Ryzen is an entirely new architecture Windows doesn't even know how to use it correctly. This means that the performance of the R7 CPU's will increase in time with UEFI updates and Windows updates. The performance increases will probably be gradual and not massive, but they will be gains nonetheless.
  2. This sounds like a high DPI issue. Go to the C&C95 folder, find "C&C95.exe", right click on it, click on "properties", click on "compatibility" and check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"
  3. Nice. I find the North American versions more interesting than the European ones though.
  4. I have a new signature. I wonder what that could mean....
  5. While I'm not associated with the mod, I find it a bit strange that nothing has been reported on this. Tiberian Sun: Rising is a total conversion mod for C&C3: Tiberium Wars. It is a "retelling" of Tiberian Sun in the 3D world of C&C3's SAGE engine. Replaces all C&C3 units and factions with Tiberian Sun ones, with some extra units. It is not en exact copy of TS in 3D due to how the engine works and the wishes of the team. The mod started over a decade ago on the Generals Zero Hour engine, but has since moved to C&C3. About 4 years has passed since the last update. The announcement can be found here.
  6. Nice! You gotta find the different releases of RA PS1 and Retaliation as well. There is one by VIE and one by EA That C&C OST with the metal texture logo and without "not for resale" written on it is pretty rare and was exclusively sold on Westwood.com IIRC, that being said the C&C OST is rare in general.
  7. Shovelware addons such as Command Companion, Defcon 3, Command & Craft contains etc. contains stuff for C&C1 and have boxes.
  8. Well I guess I'll invade this thread too. Click on images for a closer look I don't include releases I have multiple of All the Windows and Mac OS games until Generals are the "big box" releases C&C1 and related stuff RA1 and related stuff TS and related stuff RA2, YR and Renegade (sorry for blurry photo, I set the focus wrong) Dune and general Westwood stuff with Dune by Cryo sneaking in (discs showing version of the game) Later C&C games by EA. The Kane Edition is signed by Louis Castle and Jason Bender. Random compilations Westwood special editions and Sole Survivor
  9. The SAGE engine might have parts of W3D in it as Westwood used a common library across many games and some of it seems to have stuck with Generals (which they started the initial development on). Emperor Battle for Dune uses a completely different engine with no resemblance to the engines made by Westwood as it was developed by Intelligent Games, it like Dune 2000 does have certain parts of Westwood libraries in them for WOL and playing VQA files for example. Calling an engine aging because it uses some parts of previous engines is a bit of a stretch by that logic engines such as Id Tech 6 are ancient as they may have code from the late 80's in them.
  10. Do you have a "Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data" folder in your documents folder and does it contain options.ini?
  11. This sounds like the issue where Generals fails to write the options.ini file. Read this topic: http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/12319-how-to-play-generals-zero-hour-in-windows-7-x64/ it says it's for Win7, but it applies for Win10 as well.
  12. Generals was not a "quick cash grab" and neither was the SAGE engine aging at the time of release as the engine was made for Generals. The only C&C game that was released in a poor state was Tiberian Sun which initial version was buggy and the following patches fixed a lot, but not everything. All C&C games, save for Sole Survivor and C&C4, have released with an amount of content similar to the competition of the time and this includes expansion packs. In Westwood games all fixes introduced in expansions, save for YR, where also available as free patches.
  13. Rainbow Six and Rayman too
  14. Yup. The cutscenes showed Iowa class Battleships RA1 is still one of my favorite games. Below you can see the RA1 part of my C&C collection
  15. I have one suggestion for the theme on the main page. In CSS replace the properties in the html selector with: html { background: #001b3d url(images/red-alert-bg.jpg) center fixed; background-size: cover; } This will make the background image scale with the size of the users monitor. It looks better imo than tiling the image.
