  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.
  2. Now Playing - Games

    Now that the servers for WW2 are working, it's a surprisingly good game. Great even.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  9. I need a recommendation for a good mouse

    I use the Corsair M65. Best mouse I've ever had.
  10. 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...
  11. I am sorry to bother you here. May I know what software do I need to use RA2 AIEdit? You appears to be very knowledgeble in this area. Here is the software mentioned.

      I just use Notepad. I quit using editors a long time ago. Easier to just make things myself. Not too hard all things considered.

  12. Now Playing - Games

    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.
  13. 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...
  14. Steam reviews show Mixed results. Sometimes that's palatable, but for an uncertain buy... probably not going to risk it.
