  1. I want to play via LAN with my roommate on tiberian sun sometime. I have Vista gaming PC with an integrated ethernet port, he has the same type of thing with an XP computer. My computer tells me I have no network card ... I never have been able to get tibsun, or tiberian dawn, or red alert, or RA2, or any of them to work. What do I do?

    Possible C&C : X FPS Footage?

    Yeah. Tiberium is probably a working title. Tiberium Wars was as well. This is so generic.

    le sigh Only recent pics I have are of me and Tess. (I'm the dude.) I'm not very dressed up in these, but I'm gothique myself. Nice to see a true goth. All the kids I know are like, "OMGZ I WEAR BLACK I'M SO GOTH", but they're all just random kids wanting to get in on an image. Those corporate whores. Rawr!

    Renegade tips and tricks

    Playing at mid-level on Renegade for years, I have learned some tricks that I see a lot of people neglecting. I usually get first to fourth place in games with around 20-30 people in them. I want to tell you what I know, and in turn, I want you all to post your own. Tip 1: Alternate between first and third person! Don't stick to one or the other like many say ... each has it's advantage! Third person is great for seeing around corners and awareness, while I find first person better for accuracy. Tip 2: Don't underestimate the 500 sniper! Deadeye and the BHS are half the price of a Sak or Havoc, so you can replace them easier if you die. A headshot from the 500 sniper is no less lethal than one from a Ramjet! You also have a more forgiving rate of fire than a Ramjet, and you usually cannot tell where the sniper rifle shot came from. 500 snipers are also somewhat effective against Arties, MLRS, and aircraft. They make a BIG dent in their health! You may not make the kill, but you WILL assist a kill and you will definitely chase them away for repairs, at which point headshot the pilot or repair aid! Tip 3: Mammoth Tanks are usually a waste. Medium tanks are faster and more dependable. I have been killed in a Mammy by one guy in a light tank. You WILL be outmaneuvered. Mammoths are only good if you rush two or three of them. There are exceptions, but having 1500 credits doesn't mean "OMGZ MAMMY TIME!" Tip 4: TEAMWORK Teamwork ALWAYS wins renegade. Usually, you see "mercenary play". Players want the high score, so they go off and boost their score. I have NEVER seen a team that worked together lose Renegade. Organized rushes and distractions are pure beauty. I wish Renegade had voice teamspeak. Coordinated attacks ALWAYS WIN RENEGADE. Tip 5: TEAMWORK Seriously. I cannot stress this enough. Organized teams will not EVER lose Renegade. Tip 6: Get a SBH and aquire a sniper rifle. Pwnage. Tip 7: (Co-op specific) GET THE BIG 4 You want the following guns. -RAMJET RIFLE -PERSONAL ION CANNON/RAILGUN -VOLT AUTO RIFLE -Maintenence tool (That's the fast repair gun) Getting these four guns makes for excellent teamplay and versatility. Most other guns are a waste, especially if they take up space in your laser weapons slot. I like being able to hit "7" and grab a repair gun to heal. The Ramjet is simply the best in the hands of someone with decent aim, it takes out most anyone with 1 shot in co-ops, bodyshot or headshot is irrelevant. Stop grabbing every gun you see! Also, the Volt Auto rifle comes in two flavors, Nod's purple and GDI's blue. Irrelevant to the functionality of the weapon, these feautures make the Volt Auto Rifle two individual guns. This means TWICE THE AMMO if you get both. Remember that! Tip 8: REFILL! Refilling is great, especially when you aquire a weapon from a killed enemy or a comrade, because you refill EVERYTHING, not just your stock weapon. This is VERY usefull on co-op servers. After you stock up on weapons, refill so they're all at max ammo. Tip 9: Load that pistol! Especially for engineers, the pistol IS useful. And when you start with a new class or at all in Renegade, your pistol is unloaded. So when you whip it out, you have to wait 3 seconds to load it. 3 seconds can kill you, and I have personally taken out 2 havocs with one engineer pistol. Headshots are necessary with that pistol. So, whenever you start with a fresh character, press "1" and allow your character to load that pistol! You may need it later. Tip 10: Got a railgun AND a pic? USE TEH RAILGUN! Why? The PIC, when fired, tells you EXACTLY where the shooter is, and THAT the person being shot at is definitely being shot at with a specialized anti-vehicle character. That makes you aware! The railgun is so much more discreet, and it does the exact same damage. Unless you're watching your health, you won't notice you're being hit by a railgun because it looks like a regular bullet. And you usually can't tell where it came from. Also: The railgun/PIC are NOT more effective vs. infantry than the ramjet. They do the same damage, but the Ramjet has a much greater ROF and unlimited range. Yes, the PIC and Railgun DO have a range limit, a relatively shallow one at that. The PIC/Railgun do NOT do more damage versus infantry. Tip 11: STOP SHOOTING THAT TANK! Sniper rifles and ramjet rifles are effective against aircraft, buggies/hum-vees, arties, MLRS, and are a tiny bit effective versus STANKS. For a STANK, you can usually see it in the scope, and shooting it makes it sparkle, making it visible to teammates. So you're really marking it. But I so often see havocs and saks shooting at tanks! STOP THAT! You have shallowly limited ammo, and you're not doing enough damage to justify using it, unless the tank has 6 hp left and is on the run. Focus on watching for engineers or technicians/hotwires around the tank. Taking them out is the purpose of the class. Sometimes it is also more effective for a PIC/Railgun character to take out the engineer or techie/hotwire as well. Hell, for ANYONE, taking out that repair class will be ammo better used than shooting at the tank. Tip 12: Got surplus funds? DONATE! This goes along with teamwork. If you have more than 1000 creds, look for people who need money. Press TAB and see the credits of your teammates. Donate the low ones money. Buy them tanks. A single medium tank could change the balance of the game! Everyone is a potential pilot, engineer/techie, sniper, or whatever. Help them get there. If you KNOW someone is a much better sniper than yourself, give them your 1000 for a havoc or sakura, and so forth. TEAMWORK ALWAYS WINS RENEGADE. Tip 13: RELOAD CONSTANTLY! Every time you have a spare second, reload. Reloading makes it so you can replace your ammo with pickups, and keeps your clip size optimized. Keep that clip at 100, soldier! That's all I can think of at the moment.
  8. My Avatar became my sig. I doubt anyone recognizes my name until they see my sig. Beowulf changes his name ever week, so if he ever changed his anime theme. we'd have no clue who he is. Sorry for using your 5-month old name, but I forgot your current one and don't wanna check back on it.

    Now taking bets on Punwisp's ban. 10:1 odds, get your bet in! "admins suck" post ... v e r y constructive. Your attempted superiority complex fails. "lol i dont care im not angry" fails. You so obviously are trying be all big and hard. I bet you are 15 or below. Not to insult the mature teenagers here. I shouldn't type right now (This probably isn't funny, but it's funny to me right now as I am intoxicated)

    um how can it be? if i like C&C better then the old ones then it is my opinion its not good or bad, just what i prefer, and i actualy prefer generals over C&C just because there are better mods and units etc Dude. People can think opinions can be good and bad. FACT. We here at CNCNZ love the older games, you dis them.. Wait, I'm ****ing repeating myself. Here's the lo-down then. CNCNZ, majority, 95% or hell, even more of us our veterans, we like the older, original C&Cs more than the EA ones. People usually like to surround themselves with people who share the same views. You are surrounding yourself by people who think your opinion = BAD. I'd recommend finding somewhere where they think your opinions = GOOD. And you just said Generals > Older C&Cs? Oh boy... sorry about that, forgot to add the 3 XD and why does everyone keep saying im dissing the older ones? i say one thing about the older C&C games and pple think im dissing them O.o i like all the C&C games, but ive never been much of a fan of the storys, that doesnt mean i HATE THEM or im dissing them, im never much into storys of any games anyway, i just constantly go online and do skirmish battles... storyline doesnt bother me, of course there are negative sides to every game, nothing is perfect, yet when i say im not a fan of something about the game you guys constantly say im dissing C&C and getting all offended and insulting me when its JUST a game, what i meant in my last post was i prefer generals ZH over C&C3 because ive just had more fun on generals, infact ive only played 1 generals mission Lol i always use the shockwave mod and constantly go to war with 7 brutals going agianst me as a team... lots of fun C&C 3 does feal rushed but it is a fun game, just to me not as fun as generals. C&C 3 storyline maybe have went into a different direction(i would say a alternate timeline but who cares!) to C&C veterens then it prob failed, storyline didnt bother me, i liked it just because of the more modern directing(prob dont get what im saying Lol but thats fine) ive played the C&C games sense 1997 or 1998 about 9 or 10 years.. so yea. i used to play the older ones alot, then i played RA2 and yuri's revenge which was really fun when i was into that game (was very popular few years ago or is it still?) you guys really need to stop being offense, if you dont like my opinion then ignore my post and dont read it, dont make a pointless post and start insulting me. those of you who were dissapointed on C&C 3 maybe the expansion will be better? correct there mistakes and make the game better yet your asking me to leave the site when i actually didnt do anything? Admins arnt suppose to do something like that unless the member actualy "did" something wrong, such like spamming, flaming members, or advertsing viagra pills lol. Now im going to a diff topic sense this will keep going on and on, and i rather not continue this if guys are going to continue being "offended" over a opinion(or think imt rying to offend you, after all anyway im going to bed, cya I hate you a lot for a person on the internet.
  13. I really like C&C3. They've done well. We've got a new game that is very much new, but at times, I truly do feel like I'm playing Tiberian Sun. It's very graphically pleasing and the storyline is good. The acting is excellent -- a bit overdone, true to the C&C franchise. The gameplay is fast and fluid, never too one sided -- I've played matches with some pretty big twists. It's open and you have many, many methods of how to play, you really control the battlefield ... and multiplayer, even in some single-player, it's a real rush. I would like to thank, and congradulate EALA for a good game that I have, and will continue to enjoy, and I look forward to the next installment in the C&C Saga. They didn't do a half-bad job. This is no Sole Survivor. This is a hell of a game that brought in a lot of new people.

    Pic of the Day

    The current overclock on my video card. =D X1950XT, FYI. Stock speeds are 621/900. For a GPU, I've got quite an OC. I'm already beyond the XTX speeds on my core and pushing it with the mem, but the XTX uses GDDR4 and my GDDR3 takes lots of overvolting to get the 1ghz speed the XTX's mem has. I don't feel live overvolting more than I have. "How much have you overvolted already woofna?" A lot.

    Ha ha, your crappy massing tactics fail and you got pwned by a medium AI. *Point&laugh* On a serious note, I love the patch, it makes online play more diverse and challenging. LOVE the rocket guys.

    I really like C&C3

    Hi. I forgot I had a comp for a week, sorry. WOW. I just said I liked the game, I didn't mean to start World War III here. Beow-- fy- ss -- ...wtf? --that guy is gonna lock this thread if it gets much worse. Dude, stop the name thing! Dude, you're fighting with veterans that were here when Dune II came out, and you can't even spell CABAL. FAIL. Oh my, I need to pick this apart more. LOL, yes. The ending sent a chill down my spine, when Kane showed up, and I immiately wanted more. I then craved the next C&C. So Westwood did a great job. EA games is super rich. Westwood was somewhat small and cozy. I liked that better. So what if their graphics weren't cutting-edge? That's not what RTS is about! O NOEZ NOT BRUTAL!? You douche. I've never played on "easy" before. That changes nothing about needing tactics. They weren't really made poorly ... they had a LOT of content ... Westwood had the money, they just used it in making a good game, not focusing on great graphics that no one cares about. We know that. We're familiar with the fact that it is a series. Generals took place a dozen or so years in the future. Tibtawn was moreso the present than generals. We don't have hovering repair drones right now, do we? Except the canon and storyline, you douche. RA1 took place in an alternate WWII, and RA2 took place in some alternate 80's time ... we don't really acknowledge that as part of the C&C history. You fail, dude. Stop breathing my air.

    I really like C&C3

    There was ironside, then there was the cool somewhat asian girl who had intel, then there was this screamingly annoying girl who told you what to do during missions. I could have acted better than that. That woman made me want to let nod win.
  22. I'm stuck at the NOD mission where you have to overpower a massive Scrin base that GDI is attacking too. So far I saw GDI send down a single drop**** with some zone troopers, but I had venoms annihlate them before they even got a shot off. My strategy vs the Scrin had been insane numbers (30+) of Venom with the laser upgrade -- never fails. So I build 60 venoms with the laser upgrade, and thought to myself, "man this is gonna be easy". And sent them into the base. They lasted just over a minute. :shock: Major splash damage on the scrin rocket things. It's hard to fight an enemy you're completely unfamiliar with. I got pawnz0red. I'm thinking of making an attack force comprised of avatars and venoms. I always give the venoms the laser upgrade, and I try (when I can) to give the avatars a beam cannon to grab a second laser from for twice the firepower. But even fully upgraded avatars can never make an ultimate, unstoppable army like a big group of railgun mammies can, because avatars lack AA, and aircraft will destroy them in time. If this were a GDI mission I'd roll over them with mammoths, but a super avatar army is always pwned by scrin aircraft, and they lack the overall power of mammoths anyhow, even fully upgraded. I have found the story to be somehow kind of generic. I don't know what's different but it's just not the same.

    C&C3 Rig ordered today

    This is a 1000$ rig. When you build your own, you get more for less. =D Thinking of adding a SCSI set of HDD's, so I never see load screens again. I may go RAID with SATA3 though on the seagates. Intel's Core architecture outperforms the K8(Athlon) in that Athlons generally achieve 9 operations per cycle, whereas Cores achieve 12 per cycle. Combine that with the fact that AMD's highest K8 cpu runs stock at 3.0ghz. Now know that I got the E6420, which has both the 4mb cache and the x6 multiplier I so desire. I will probably overclock to around 3.2ghz, and hopefully my RAM timings won't be too loose at all. I should have a good, Orthos-stable 3.2ghz system once I'm done tweaking. The most exotic dual-core processor on the market right now, the Core 2 Extreme Edition, runs at 2.93ghz. Mine will run at 3.2. Not to mention I have a Radeon X1950XT, which I will be overclocking to XTX speeds. The XTX is arguably the best DX9 card on the market, and I will achieve it's performance (sans the DDR4 VRAM) for about $130 dollars. I win. =D
  24. I keep trying to order rigs and running into financial trouble, but it's over, I have been repaid the 5,000 dollars I was owed. So. I did it! I finally ordered a new comp. Intel had made a killing on me, even though I want to be an AMD fanboy, all my comps have always been Intels, all Pentiums even, until now ... Anyhow. I have finally ordered a new computer! It's being processed now. I have to apologize for my endless threads, but this is the 2nd-to-last one. When I get the parts I will post a thread/log of the building process. First: Here is the rig I have been using for years. And it's the fastest I've ever owned, by far, the last rig was a P3. Pentium 4 Northwood (2.53ghz) 512mb DDR-266 (one stick) 120-gig IDE hdd GeForce4 MX420 (64mb onboard) AGP 4x Dell mobo, AC'97 integrated sound Dell 17' Dell keyboard Dell ball mouse Dell 2.1 system Now this is still an impressive rig to me. Here is what I have ordered. CPU: Core 2 Duo E6420 - $189 Moob: GIGABYTE DS3 Rev 1 - $99 RAM: 2 gb G.Skill HZ dual-channel - $124 GPU: Sapphire x1950XT 256 - $169 (AR) PSU: Antec Truepower Trio 650w - $99 (AR) HDD: 7200.10 250gb - $69 ODD: Sony SATA DVD-Burner - $30 Case: Xion II Hydraulic - $39 (AR) Display: 17-inch DVI LCD, 8ms, 0.264pp, $139 (AR) Keyboard: SaiTek Eclipse (I WANT I WANT I WANT) - $45 Mouse: USB optical mouse - $5 (Will go wireless later) Tell me this won't just kick ass. This is going to totally blow me away. And better yet, this is the 'Barebone' form of this rig. The card is a placeholder for a DX10 card ( I am not confident that 6-month-old cards, I.E. G80's, will be good enough for newer DX10 games ), an X-fi xtrememusic is in the plans, as is a 5.1 system for surround sound. I also will get a wireless mouse and a 19' monitor, then use the 17' as a secondary. This is going to my first real gaming rig. It's just going to pwn anything I've ever SEEN before. And while the Dell barely ran Generals, this rig better PWN on C&C3. That's the first game it's running. I have it right now but I refuse to put it on the Dell. So. This will run C&C3, I hope. And as for contrast ... how much of a difference do you think I'll notice between this and the above-mentioned Dell? A lot? Yeah. It should start up in a 5th of the time. Three cheers for NewEgg. I'm very happy. Wish my Rig and I luck!
