  1. It's fast, I give it that. Problem is... it breaks a shitload of extensions. Not going to 57 on my desktop if I can help it. If ESR keeps the old style, I'll remain on Firefox but if ESR goes the way of ruining extensions, Firefox will be a thing of the past.

    Now that the servers for WW2 are working, it's a surprisingly good game. Great even.

    C&C on alternate platforms

    C&C on the Switch would be something neat. Especially with the touch screen! Hell, even a remake of TD or RA would be great.

    Are there any good games left?

    I get the feeling you're a bit of a hipster. Plenty of great games still exist. I guess you're too busy nitpicking to find enjoyment.
  5. Clone buildings and use the TechLevel=-1 trick for getting the AI to build more factories. Keep in mind that the AI will get units out of EACH factory. Never do this with construction yards. The AI will expand all the over the map. The naval AI in RA2 is really poor. You basically can't make the naval AI properly bombard land based targets. It was designed to attack sea-based targets. You can add all the triggers and scripts you want, but the AI will almost never attack land based targets. You can partially make it happen but you have to explicitly state land targets (eg; war factory) but it's still very poor at attacking anything but shipyards. I spent hours upon hours trying to make this work but I eventually just gave up. Wasn't worth the hassle. Ares may be able to allow this at some point but if it did, I have no idea when. When it comes to AI editing, use Notepad. Editors are almost always poor and you don't learn enough. You can do a lot more with the raw text than you'll ever be able to do with some editor.
  6. Cute. Reverse fanboying. Same bullshit, different package. Huzzah. The point about a remaster... the early games would benefit. Native widescreen and slightly fancier graphics won't hurt. Not like the SC Remaster didn't prove leaving the old elements in tact while making things a bit better isn't good or anything. Nah, that didn't happen. In short, this was a lame display of random anger.
  7. Is the AI trigger still not working? Post the script type.
  8. Should just need to use AIBuildThis for the Service Depot and Nuclear Reactor. Try adding the Reactor to NodAdvancedPower. I think I had to do that to make it work. Your triggers are referencing team 3, which is Yuri. They need to reference 1 and 2, which are Allies and Soviets, respectively.

    I need a recommendation for a good mouse

    I use the Corsair M65. Best mouse I've ever had.

    Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    The boards are still slow for me. Not awful, but slower than it should be. How is cache and session data stored? Move it off file structure and put it into memcache/Redis. Make sure you're automatically serving gzipped content... all that good shit. Shouldn't take 20 seconds to load the activity panel...

    Picked up Infinite Warfare again. Surprisingly fun game. The space theme is actually cool as hell. Also got Starcraft Remastered. Classic action with a fresh coat of paint. And classic VOs.
  12. Usually depends on the game. That happens more on popular titles or indie games. Stuff like SS4 doesn't usually get it and I didn't think highly of it...
  13. Steam reviews show Mixed results. Sometimes that's palatable, but for an uncertain buy... probably not going to risk it.

    RIP Flash (1996-2020)

    Java isn't going anywhere. It's a perfectly legitimate cross platform language. Anything with a large user base is inevitably going to be targeted more often than more esoteric or specific things.

    Just Desktop CPU Thread now.

    New Desktop Quote

    Switch to Ryzen. Probably more bang per dollar than a 7700K will give you.

    The Putin Interviews (Oliver Stone)

    Politician is basically synonymous with corrupt twat.
  18. It really depends on what I need it to do. If it's a server, more cores is going to be more beneficial. If it's just your average general use computer, more speed. If it's gaming, you need speed and cores. There's no blanket preference that works for all cases.

    Mods and RA2/YR (UC)

    I believe the RA2 and YR exes for TUC are a bit different from the TFD/CD installed variants. There's been issues getting things to work with TUC. Works with TFD and CD installs though.

    Unplayable games -- then and now

    The only games I've had problems with on launch were Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts. Otherwise, I try not to get games that don't ****ing work.

    Post Your C&C Collections

    I bought some shelves just for this purpose. I'll be getting some new ones and a curio cabinet to display them even more awesomely. The Officer's Club is a bonus thing. I'll be honest... I have no idea what it has on it. XD LE means... I dunno actually. It was a promo and it doesn't seem very common so I bought it.

    Player Unknown's Battlegrounds

    I don't buy early access unless I really want it. I'll stick to Call of Duty for my slaughtering needs.

    The worst launches in PC gaming history

    I agree with that list. Hit all the major failures that have occurred in recent years.

    Post Your C&C Collections

    Yay! UPDATES! Got a bunch of new stuff! Great stuff! First up are the demos and promos. Found a neat promo. The Command & Conquer LE Edition. Also picked up a Mac Command & Conquer demo. Kinda neat really. Also found a Renegade demo from an Italian magazine, which is pretty cool. And last is the PCGamer Soldier of Fortune disc that has Tiberian Sun on it. Picked up some neat Generals stuff too. Got an Officer's Club CD thing. Had to order it from Greece though. Also picked up Generals in packaging I've not seen before. Bitch is still sealed and won't be unsealed. Lo and behold. I, too, have the Generals demo disc. Mine's in the original pouch though. Last for that is the Generals preorder bonus... uh, thing. Not entirely sure though. xD The pouch with the disc is still sealed. Picked up a few miscellaneous things too. I found a neat rerelease of Command & Conquer: the White Label. Also picked up a PCGamer Red Alert Survival Guide. It's so very 90s. Also got some neat console editions. Missions Tesla. It's French. And it's awesome. And... the ever elusive Japanese PS1 edition. Everything about it is just so goddamn awesome. And... now... the best purchases of the last few months... SPECIAL EDITIONS! I got me a Tiberium Wars Polish GDI special edition! And the Tiberium Wars Polish special edition for Nod! And... last, but not least... the most prized edition of C&C ever... the Commemorative Edition! Yes, I got one. And no, it wasn't cheap.
