  1. Just playing catch up with this news. Early last week the W3D Hub team released another updated version of Red Alert: A Path Beyond. Some of the general changes can be seen below. But there are many other bug fixes and changes concerning the infantry, vehicles, buildings, maps and more. AI-controlled Allied/Soviet bots and defenses now earn points for their team when they damage or kill things, so they will no longer put close games in jeopardy when they steal your kills. AI-controlled combat units now use moonsense715's refined AI, which will attempt to strafe in combat, and not get too close to its target (except melee ants). Hitbeeps have been disabled entirely since CJ is no longer around to fix the issues with them (most notably, the "60 hitbeeps per second if you cause a damage-over-time effect" one). Hitmarkers are still there though. Follow this link for the full list of changes in this version. You can update the game via the W3D Hub Launcher.

    Deadpool 2 (2018)

    Apparently American audiences get to this awesome teaser for Deadpool 2 just before the opening of Logan. The man himself, Ryan Reynolds, was first to upload the teaser to his channel for all to enjoy.
  3. The OpenRA team have released a brand new playtest version of their Command & Conquer remake mod. This release includes a collection of balance and map changes for the official mods that have been discussed and debated on the OpenRA forums at great length, plus several notable new features as listed below. 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. Check out the full changelog for all the updates in this release. Visit the OpenRA site for the download.

    Deadpool 2 (2018)

    Some fans are guessing that Nathan Fillion could be playing Cable (Nathan Summers) in Deadpool 2. http://movieweb.com/deadpool-2-teaser-easter-egg-cable-nathan-fillion/

    Logan (Wolverine 3) 2017

    Yeah I know all about screw up at the Oscars. That La La **** still won a bunch of other meaningless awards though. Logan is not really a comic book super hero movie but it will classed as one. And comic book super hero movies don't win Oscars. Unless the actor dies, like Heath Ledger did in 2009.

    Logan (Wolverine 3) 2017

    Went to see Logan tonight. Brilliant movie. Violent and emotional. This is Hugh's finest work as Wolverine. Patrick Stewart's performance is excellent as well. I really couldn't find anything wrong with it. I would like see them continue this with style for future X-Men movies. Its gritty, raw and far more realistic. I don't give two ****s about Oscar awards but I think Jackman deserves some Oscar recognition for this one. But we know that will never happen. We live in a world where **** trash like LA LA Land win these so called "awards".
  8. As some of you are aware we are privately testing new forums for the site. The progress is slow due a few things like real life commitments and unfamiliarity of what I'm working with. During the testing I've been thinking, researching and checking out other sites for ideas and I'm starting to lean towards a move to a lighter theme for both the main site and forums. The more I think about it I feel this is best way to approach things. I know the blue themes are traditional, people like them, but after 10+ years (maybe more) a change is needed. Looking at lot of other gaming site the trend light colours and I want to push CNCNZ.com into a new era. I would like to know what you guys think of CNCNZ.com going lighter? I would of course be redesigning the CNCNZ.com logo as well. A new look logo with a new font style etc.... So it would be an completely all new look and feel. Nothing is confirmed just yet, just filling you all in on the ideas and see what you guys think.
  9. No point in doing that since no wants the lighter colours. The one you see above will not be used now. Found a different one that I think looks better, its dark of course but offers more in terms of customisation.
  10. Just a couple of days ago, on the 26th of February, marked the 15th anniversary of Command & Conquer Renegade. Way back in 2002 Westwood Studios finally released Command & Conquer Renegade after a long and delayed build up. There was much excitement in the C&C community as we were actually getting our first taste of a first person shooter set in the Command & Conquer universe. Reality set in when most fans discovered the single player was rather average, but the real gem of the game was the multiplayer mode. Something we came to know simply as "C&C Mode". Nothing matched it at the time, it was different. It was fast paced. It truly was unrivalled gameplay. The idea was simple, yet so effective. Two sides, one resource, first one to destroy the enemies base wins. The focus was on points and the amount of damage you dished out, rather than straight out kills. So it really meant nothing if you had 2 kills or 20 kills in a game. I remember spending many long hours into the night in game after game, it was kind of addictive. Tanking rushing, Engineer rushing, deploying your Ion or Nuke beacons, chaotic infantry skirmishes and more.... Renegade had it all! Hard to believe all of that was 15 years ago. The good news you can still play the classic Renegade online but the best way in these modern times is get to Renegade X. Renegade's unmatched, unrivalled gameplay lives on. Renegade X is free to download and free to play. It is made by C&C fans for C&C fans and considered a tribute to Westwood Studios' original creation. Visit the Renegade X site more information and to download the game. Share your favourite Renegade memories with us in this new topic.Thanks to W3D Hub for the news image.
  11. Here we go with this week's pick for C&C Music Monday. And it's back to the Red Alert 2 soundtrack for this one with "Motorized". Part techno, part rock, mixed in with a deep base sound. Another classic Red Alert 2 track from Frank Klepacki. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  12. Some more great looking concept art from the cancelled Command & Conquer FPS game, Tiberium, has been found on the website for Duane Loose. He was one of the many artists who worked on the game during it's concept and design stages. There are 16 new images showing a battle scene, Tiberium fields, some Scrin concepts and more. Some of the images also appear to be from the Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars concept stage, based on the dates and image descriptions. Some more interesting reading in the form of these PDF files. Command & Conquer: Tiberium | GDI Styleguide Deep Industrial Design Styleguide You can view all the new images inside our Tiberium Concept Art gallery (pages 7 and 8), or on the artists own site.
  13. I'm really liking this one.... Once it has a CNCNZ.com logo on it I think it will look part
  14. What if the colours went from all of these blues to darker greys with only hints of blues? It will still be a dark theme just not all white and bright.
  15. Moved to the news forum - http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/20515-rts-fps-investigating-tiberium/
  16. Get an up close and personal look at the chaotic action that you can find in Renegade X in the latest video from LavaDr4gon on YouTube. Some awesome video editing is also featured. Check it out in the video above. And remember, Renegade X is 100% free to download. This means you can experience the game for yourself. Visit the Renegade X site for more information and the download.
  17. Here's this week's pick for C&C Music Monday. From the C&C Generals soundtrack it's "Glory", one of the GLA tracks. Compared to the rest of the GLA tracks, it has a catchy beat. But it does feature some ambient parts and meaty sounding guitar riff. Remember, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  18. If your skilled at creating themes for IPS Community Suite 4.0 we would like to hear from you. We need to get our existing blue theme that you see here on our forums rebuilt so we can use it for the newer IPS Community Suite 4.0 software. If you think your up to the task and able to help us please send me an e-mail to [email protected] and we will discuss more options from there.
  19. Sounds like total bull**** to me. These so called experts will make up anything to justify their meaningless research.
  20. Frank Klepacki recently asked this question to his Twitter followers.... What was your favourite Universe at War track? If you use Twitter you can reply directly to Frank on there. My pick goes to Damage King....
  21. It's Monday, so that means it's time for this week's C&C Music Monday post. This week, it's "C&C In The House" from the Red Alert 2 soundtrack. A fast techno track from Frank Klepacki. It also features an awesome heavy rock riff from the 1:05 mark. Remember, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.

  24. 8-Bit Armies will be made available on digital stores and retail in the summer of 2017 (winter for this side of the world) for consoles and its going to be released as a retail box for PC. http://soedesco.com/soedesco-collaborates-with-command-conquer-veterans-on-console-debut-of-8-bit-armies/ Must they use the Command & Conquer name to promote it though?
  25. For this week's instalment of C&C Music Monday we are going all the back to the soundtrack for the original Command & Conquer. The selection is "Iron Fist". Another rock/techno classic from Frank Klepacki. Remember, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
