    Fan-made offline fix for C&C4?

    Ok, I know we are getting into dangerous waters for talking about this, but I decided to make a topic here instead of the official forums since I believe the CNCNZ team has actually shown some real concern about the new always online requirement for C&C4. I have talked with APOC about this and requested him and the EALA team to convince their bosses to remove this requirement from the game, I have told them the overwhelming vast majority of the people playing the game will support them if they decided to tray to do the right thing and simply go back to the old antipiracy system of , but, well, I got the answer here: Here is the link of the thread, just to be show it on context. So basically APOC is telling us that the always online was never primary intended as an antipiracy measure, and this effect was just a "bonus". Ok with that, but this doesnt remove the problem, not everyone have a high speed stable connection, this is extremely dependant of in what country or region of the world you live. Such is my case, so far I have had this game since wednesday, in all that time I have been only able to play less than 5 games online because my internet company keeps giving me an unstable connection, you may say "then you should change to another company" well guess what, there is only other viable company at my city, and for the info I have gathered for months it's as bad as the one I am with (for more info look for Telefonica and Telmex on Goggle, and never contract them if you have any other option). So in the end and after suffering of many disconnections, losingmy battle experience and receiving the famous "Error 23" I decided to download and offline fix for the game and install it on my PC. After messing a bit with the files I finally managed not only to make it work, but created a personal account and automatically unlocked the whole arsenal for both GDI and Nod, plus create a system similar to Modern Warfare, so now I can alternate between my online and offline account without more than a few editions. Now here comes the question, wouldnt it be good if the same fix I got and upgraded were available from the fansites of C&C to the average fan? I am sure you find wrong a lot people is suffering of this "always online" feature and since EALA public voice has stated this was actually not intended to be an antipiracy system then I dont seen why it should be denied to those who spend their money in an original copy, and it would be awesome if some people here could help me making the fix avoid the manual edition to minimize any unwanted risk. I really hope people get interested into this, so we can correct the current situation. PS: Sorry for the grammar mistakes, not every was born in english speaking countries with fast and stable internet connection.

    Victory Games Begins Packing Up

    Not gonna happen, experience shows EA rather prefers franchises to get buried than sell them, and no, dont count on EA falling apart, they are too big and have too much of a widespread array of products to end like, for example, THQ.

    Command & Conquer's Cancellation - The Real Story

    Bring Riccitiello back, remove the current directory and you will see EA back on track: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-31-ex-ea-ceo-john-riccitiello-is-skeptical-of-free-to-play What is scaring me is to consider who is actually in control of EA as he is actually critizising most of the company current policies, policie that were implemented during his reign.
  4. For all the hints and info we are getting the main reason why C&C was canned was thanks to the new EA CEO having no faith in C&C, bring back Ricitiello or even Gibeau (not that this is gonna happen) as the main boss and you will see C&C back on production. Oh well, with this and the hiatus brought to Dead Space, and no more Crysis there is no reason for me to spend a single more cent in EA games, no, I am not buying BF4, yes, I will keep buying CoD, I couldnt care less about multiplayer, the singleplayer is awesome, besides I already have the Wargame franchise for ultra-realism, plus it's an strategy game, during the Cold War! So I have dozens of units at my command while BF offers me only one single vehicle which I will have to fight with another 8 guys to get.
  5. Hello there, just requesting some help with this small project, I have managed to create a new dds texture and its corresponding XML file for the soviet twinblade following this tutorial: http://www.moddb.com/groups/c-c-paradise/tutorials/retexturing-existing-units-with-ease However, the tutorial doesnt explain how to make the files work (where to install them, if I need to create a whole mod, etc), could anyone tell me what to do next?

    Command & Conquer's Cancellation - The Real Story

    Look at the new EA CEO and his cronies: http://www.ea.com/executives I suspect from now on, everything EA does will be sports, mobile and sims.

    New GLA General Unveiled - Muerta

    I am latinoamerican, and I find this general awesome, and no, I dont see why I should get pissed about this, if you lived here you would know we have had guerrilla fighters, politicians and terrorists equal or more nuts than this general Also, obviously Muerte is a shot-out of Roberta, which makes it double awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubUMbMG8QE8 "Ahora me lo mató, y a la mamá, a su papá y a la abuelita, y si la abuelita está muerta la desentierro y se la vuelvo a matar".
  8. So why, bcs you dont like it? You want EA to get the developers fired and stop anyone from ever getting new C&C games ever again even if there is people who actually enjoy EA's games despict their shortcomings? I may understand you say you dont like what you are reading and seeing, and saying you will pass, I would even sympathize for you demanding some old features to come back, but I think wishing something to die just because it's not of your liking it's going too far. Remember Westwood? What would have happened if they had though the same way after Sole Survivor's flip-flop or Renegade lacklusting sales? I mean, I didnt like RA3 after the initial hype as it turned out to be too cartoonish and in terms of gameplay it was very far away from previous C&C to the point it felt more like WC3, however a lot of people enjoyed it,also, while I found awful and disappointing Tiberian Twilight as a C&C, in terms of gameplay it was entertaining, and I demostrated and people at the official forums, and even here agreed with me it would have been a good game with some more serious design and as a spin-off similar to what C&C Generals 1 was. Just because not all EA games were good it doesnt mean they are may not pull out a good one next time. If it wasnt for EA investors' money we wouldnt have had Generals/Zero Hour, C&C 3/Kane's Wrath, Dead Space, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Crysis and Battlefield series, those are a lot of awesome games just to point out the most succesful.
  9. Well mate, either they make money from the franchise or it goes along with THQ, Gamespy, MoH, etc, etc, etc, you see, their main priority is with the investors, they are not going to live from just some fans approval.

    Four New Maps for The Red Alert

    Some good old vintage C&C. This is perhaps the only RA3 mod I am eager to play, good old school, now If someone can desaturate the RA3 engine

    The Next C&C on the PlayStation Vita?

    That sounds like the most pausible possibility, besides, I dont think EA, or any other copany, may want to make any more attempts on console RTS games, none of them ended too well and unless someone brings full compatibility with keyboard and mouse it will always be very limited.

    Tiberian Apocalypse - Hover MLRS

    The unit looks very nice, I really like the missile animation.
  21. I think part of the reason why Tiberian Sun didnt win was because people at the community disliked a lot the way TS fans have been acting all these years, calling those who dont agree with them morons, demanding the franchise to always follow strictly the TS canon and style, trolling on the boards and overall being a negative element for the C&C fanbase, we may say they were looking for this result.

    Kane's Wrath Modding - Wrath Ed Demo 0.5 Released

    A mod SDK for Kane's Wrath would be wonderful, particularly one to update the AI and decreased the refinery's value to make it competitive again, also, it would be great to fix some of the visual issues at the game.

    C&C Community Bracket Game - Semi-Finalists Found

    As usual some people created fake accounts in order to make their fav games with, I think we all expected that, what some people may not have expected was to see the amount of smurf accounts made during the Tiberian Sun vs Generals poll. I have already suggested only members and senior members should be allowed to vote, since there are not really many other ways to avoid fraud at the poll.
