  1. On August of 2012, Megumi (aka Lauren) promised for a WrathEd 2.0, but recently something has happened and Megumi refused to tell the C&C community what had happened. Downloads for the old versions of WrathEd are gone but this archived version of WrathEd is present from another KW mod page: http://www.moddb.com/mods/kanes-wrath-enhanced/downloads/wrathed-download-until-updated-by-megumi As for Bibber, the mod launcher and all other KW mods are still there from the KW game page: http://www.moddb.com/members/bibber/downloads Three questions as of now: 1. What's the status of the KW Mod SDK? Development was on hold but for how long? 2. Were there technical difficulties with WrathEd 2.0? Megumi said it just went from bad to worse. (if so, what was it?) 3. Is EA still spying on you guys on this project?
  2. In 1984, the first Dune movie was mediocre, and then comes the movie ministries in later years. In 2011, Paramount was going for this reboot, but it got canned out due to budget and licensing issues. Now in 2017 after Arrival and Blade Runner projects, Denis Villeneuve is headlining this Dune reboot project by Legendary Pictures. It's going to be a challenge though.

  3. So Duke Nukem 3D did have a 20th anniversary edition as a world tour edition, with five (instead of four) episodes. While Gearbox did the modification of the game, everything in the game is great (including real music, sounds and Duke's speeches) except for the lack of high resolution textures in an upgraded 3D engine. Sadly, you cannot buy it in GOG.com for now (but the guys there are trying to get every Duke Nukem game back into GOG for new licensing permits) but it's available in Steam with that s*** DRM. However that modified game isn't worth $19.99 USD. Of course you can still get the eduke32 executable as well as the high resolution pack for Duke3D for free to combine with this world tour edition.
  4. Welcome back, Egozi. The transition to the new forum software has undergone many new and modified changes which is why you cannot upload specific files such as xml. As for that Predator with missile pods, I did not know about that issue. Have you tried the missile pods as a secondary weapon, just like the coding from the Mammoth Tank?
  5. PC Gamer still thinks The Windows Store still sucks: http://www.pcgamer.com/the-windows-store-still-sucks Yeah, most people knew.

  7. Updated 5/27/2016 Most links from this page have been shortened to avoid too much text from this post. Also added more free games to the list from PC Gamer. For the official record, here's the list of free-to-play PC games that are either freeware, open-source, non-open-source or independent. Only a limited number of beta, remake, expansion, browser and flash games will be mentioned here. The following free-to-play PC games cannot be included: -- pirated/hacked/cracked games (discussion of this is prohibited in this forum!) -- ROMs used in game emulators (i.e.: NES, GBA, NDS, 3DS, etc. -- discussion of this is prohibited in this forum!) -- promotional and free-to-try games only for a limited time -- game demos and shareware with partial/limited content -- abandonware or vaporware games that have little or no support -- incomplete or cancelled game even in alpha or beta stage (exception is Renegade-X) -- 100% Multiplayer/Online with no skirmish mode (ie. MMORPG, MOBA, etc. -- exception will be some browser/flash games) -- any game listed as an add-on modification or plug-in to the original game, program or website -- any game listed as an alternative or clone to the original type of game (there are some exceptions) -- any game that only takes seconds or minutes to complete -- any game that is not for Windows OS (ie. Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, etc.) -- any game that isn't mentioned as free-to-play yet (including the ones that only has the source code released such as Doom 3) Please report any dead links and I will fix them. If there are no alternative download link(s) to that game, that game will be marked with an asterisk and you have to find it yourself. If you find that a game in this list isn't really free-to-play but considered as abandonware or something else, that game will be removed from the list. (Note with the asterisk (*) Please do not ask me how to get or go through it. Just Google it. That game may be abandonware or else.)

  8. I never thought I would want to post this here, but for the first time ever, I decided to post a thread asking you guys to post any free giveaway on game(s) that are temporarily free to get and download without any paying cost (whether if it's from Steam, Origin or whatsoever). At least it's better than paying up front. Please do not post MP only games here. Last year, Metro 2033 was the last best free DirectX 11 game to download (via THQ's FB) until EA gave away a free promo code for Battlefield 3 which happened two months ago. I also missed last year's Origin free promo code that should have given me a free download of any game priced at $19.99 or under. As of now only seven games in Origin are permanently free to download. I do not know how many games in Steam are permanently free to download as of now. So far I missed three opportunities at getting C&C4 for free, really, unless someone in the C&C community still has an unused code specifically for that game and use it into Origin.
  9. When I first ran the 1.18 version of the game, I get an error saying that wintrust.dll cannot be found. However the game does run, under the condition in the properties of that shortcut, the use of any old Windows compatibility is not needed under Windows 7 and above versions due to recent Windows support of the old game.
  10. Will mention this on The Ultimate Free-to-play Games List.
  11. Before there was WrathEd, there was the original KW xml pack in which only a limited amount of modders and other guys in "the inner circle" only had in their disposal, including me. It was never released to the public.... until now. I don't care if EA gives a **** about this file being distributed since C&C is mostly dead in the water. C&C3's 10th anniversary is coming next March and I thought why not this be the time to release something this... rare? Yes, without this pack, I wouldn't be doing what I would want to do in C&C3 modding up until to this point. This pack includes all xml and even KW map source codes from Kane's Wrath. Download: https://www.mediafire.com/?l4r97boon88z764 This KW xml pack works really well with WrathEd, without having to re-copy every redundant code coming from WrathEd. Do not attempt to try using the xmls for the C&C3 Mod SDK since it has numerous incompatible coding that don't work or have not been implemented in C&C3. To download and use the KW xml materials for C&C3, refer to my KW Reloaded source code instead: http://www.moddb.com/mods/kanes-wrath-reloaded/downloads/kw-reloaded-17-source-code Have fun modding!
  12. Because I read the post in Reddit, Alex06 already confirmed that was AgmLauncher's post. But that was just my opinion, no harm needed.
  13. I don't know WTH was AgmLauncher thinking about back then when he's in the team. Because of his Starcraft experience, he wanted multiplayer on a F2P C&C game, which got it all wrong and no wonder why EA devs don't trust him. Re-trying to create C&C Arena (in Generals style) with a bit of Sole Survivor and Tiberium Alliances is NOT going to work. Isn't C&C all about single-player with multiplayer as a bonus, hmmm?
  14. It's early to open this new discussion topic, but hey, Disney/Lucasarts have officially named the subtitle for Star Wars 8. A decent title though, but I'll bet the last Jedi standing is Rey when Luke will fall to the Empire. I wish it was called The Empire Re-Strikes Back. First trailer is here: The official poster:
  15. More SNL:
  16. This is not a surprise to some gamers, but people already knew that the game was terrible.
  17. Well Win10 is free to upgrade for a year via Windows Update regardless of which OS you are using. But did you know, Microsoft has done something that even neither Windows 8 and lower versions had, a free manual download of the full version of Windows 10 in an ISO file!!!!!!! Last time I have seen a free manual download was a Windows 8 Enterprise that doesn't apply to other versions of Windows (such as Home or Pro editions). Unless you have a valid serial number, that OS will only work for 180 days before you must activate Windows (which I hate unlike other OSs that are not Windows). Also if you are upgrading from a Win10 Tech Preview to the full/upgraded version to Win10, the current serial number from the Tech Preview may not work. It does not work for me even following from this article: http://goodereader.com/blog/technology/how-to-upgrade-to-windows-10-from-technical-preview Here's the manual download link for those who could not upgrade via Windows Update: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/ Note that Windows 10 Single Language is the multilanguage version of Windows which lets you select a language that is preinstalled in Windows. Also note that the Windows 10 N is the European version, and Windows 10 KN is the Korean version. Both the N and KN versions do not come with media components unless those can be downloaded as an option: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231
  18. I guess she's trying out to be a James Bond girl, a female Expendable or a female version of John Wick:
  19. I guess Lauren and some others are now being used to digital distribution and backup instead of optical media. I am now used to digital distribution when it comes to free games/mods, especially promotional ones. Besides it took me 15-20 minutes to copy files to a partitioned hard drive from a GTA IV blu-ray disc I had made and that's just merely 15 GB. The chances of having Win10 installed from a blu-ray disc is far faster and better than a DVD unless you add the missing programs and other features that Win10 doesn't have to fill up at least 20 GB. Recently I install WIn10 from an ISO file by just mounting the virtual drive with an opened ISO instead of a DVD. It's a sad thing to say the fact that Win10 should have been bigger. As of right now, I rely on some blu-ray media and USB flash drives. Until I buy and build a new PC with USB 3.0 compatibility, blu-ray writable media is where I am sticking on because it's faster than USB 2.0 flash drives, and I know that USB 3.0 flash/hard drives are faster than blu-ray writable media. External USB 2.0 hard drives or portable drives are faster than USB 2.0 flash drives but they tend to break easily in the short term.
  20. Today's Good Friday and Disney has finally released the first trailer of this film: "It's time for the Jedi to end," said Luke.
  21. For those who are planning to upgrade to Windows 10 Creator's Edition and above, heads up for a new change I discovered. It appears that outdated apps (including some drivers) that are incompatible with the latest version of Win10 after the Windows upgrade will wind up being deleted without the need of prompting the user. Always use system restore and back up your files before upgrading Windows. It happened to me when I was upgrading my RCN tablet. While the upgrade was a success, the Intel audio driver disappeared in the device manager and the volume control is muted. Then I tried installng the updated drivers found from a third-party website which winded up having the reboot an issue and Windows couldn't recover the bootup, so I reset back to factory settings while keeping my personal files and have all installed apps deleted all just to restore an Intel SST Audio Device driver. Neither using system restore nor updating the driver using the Internet worked to revert the situation. I assumed there was already an unknown bug or malware in my tablet before all of this happened.
  22. 80s still rock.
  23. Speaking of more Logan, who needs this?
  24. I did try using the media creation tool a few times in Win10 on my tablet. It first it worked but when it tried to download the selected type of ISO, the server hanged and didn't do anything in to download the required file and I was on a connected wi-fi to the home cable modem... not in a PC with a connected cable. I also never really liked using Windows Update anyway because there's a slim chance it'll work.... and it has been long since I tweaked multiple things in Win10 back then which may cause this effect.
