  1. Thank you for taking the time to share this (and other TI news for that matter), Sonic, we appreciate it.
  2. - Version 0.39 New Features - For a complete list of features, minor and major, please read our changelog here. Probably one of the most important features in Twisted Insurrection 0.39 is the new and improved Client, granting you the ability to customize your Skirmish and Online games with loads of new options and tweaks, pre-set teams, locations and alliances on all maps (even with AI players) and have many new game modes to try such as Twisted Dawn, Survival, Meat Grinder, Unholy Alliance, Timeless Insurrection and Ultimate Insurrection. Loads of options that were not possible before are now available, which will enhance your skirmish and multiplayer experience greatly, allowing you to play the style of match you are looking for, be it a quick relentless war or a long-winded battle with unlimited funds at your disposal. Some of these new options include Build Off Ally, Start Without Shroud, Tiberium-Resistant Infantry, Disable Tiberium Lifeforms, Berzerk Cyborgs, Unlimited Tiberium and Enable Ion Storms. Some screenshots can be seen just above of all of the new client options! Version 0.39 brings a massive balance overhaul to the mod too implementing lots of feedback provided by staff testing and the public players. The campaign missions have been modified and improved along with the addition of a few more new missions to play, including the Nod Finale. Some new units and structures have been added into the game too, some of which we won't reveal how to acquire just yet. A list of Twisted Insurrection's top features (old and new): Windows 8 / 8.1 Support All new Skirmish/Online set-up Options Optional Base Props mode, giving you more eye-candy for your bases Completely Standalone (No CD/TS Required, TI runs entirely by itself) A new in-depth story-line following Nod's victory in Tiberian Dawn (C&C95) Completely revamped and improved graphics Additional Skirmish Modes such as Twisted Dawn, Survival and Checkpoint New campaigns and new missions for GDI and Nod, including special challenge missions.

  3. I found some Pogo Command & Conquer titles many, many years ago though I was never certain if they were official games, thought I would just share what I knew if any of you happened to be curious. The first I remember was a title called "Command & Conquer: Armored Assault", which was pretty fun actually, but it got dull quickly. Sorry for the crap quality of the recording, I couldn't find any superior footage. The second is a very similar style (Both because it's Generals themed and the perspective style used) called "Command & Conquer: Attack Copter". This was the first game I uncovered on Pogo when I was younger and could spend hours playing it. These titles seem to be very unknown which leaves me to think that they might not be official titles.
  4. Thanks for sharing this information over here, and also for your kind words.
  5. Thank you for posting the news here, Sonic, and for the other news too. Just a small correction: It's the 19th and not the 15th, which was my error in my own news post, sorry about that!
  6. Hello CNCNZ! Long time no see! Some of you may be aware that I (Aro) announced my resignation as Twisted Insurrection leader a few months ago, I'd just like to inform you that I have changed my mind on the matter due-to several reasons and will be resuming work as normal! I apologize to our fans whom I may have disappointed, but I'm happy to announce that it was, afterall, only a temporary leave. After recent discussions with some staff members and some other people I consider to be my friends, I have managed to be persuaded to think otherwise about my resignation, so I owe a lot to the guys for helping me pick up my mood again. One other main deterrent of keeping up working on Twisted Insurrection was the fact that Windows 8 hindered my ability to resume work at the pace that I usually keep, but now thanks to a lot of fine-tuning and fiddling, everything is back in order again. Once Public Beta 5 is released and I have found an almost-perfect solution to the Windows 8 issue, I will include a tutorial of how to get TS/TI working correctly on the dreaded operating system. Now that I am back in the game and finally have internet set up at my new home, I am pleased to inform you that Twisted Insurrection will resume progress as normal! Not that Twisted Insurrection has been quiet for all those months, quite the contrary. We are only 2 Nod and 3 GDI Missions away from having a completed campaign, big props to Q45 for all his hard work. Once both campaigns are complete, some additional challenge missions will be created and then work on GloboTech's... missions... will begin. Now, I know what you're all thinking, which is probably something along the lines of "But Aro, when will the faction structures and units be finished?" and the answer to that is simply this, I don't know. ErastusMercy, the lead voxel artist for Twisted Insurrection has been on hiatus around the same time that I took my "leave" due-to several reasons, one of which being to embark on working on his mod, Emerald Prophecy, now for the Unreal engine, but hopefully he'll be back in the game soon. Lin Kuei Ominae, the Nod Building artist for Twisted Insurrection has been unable to use 3DSMAX for quite some time now, but that time is drawing to a close very soon (we hope), once he is able to begin work again, the Nod structures will start flying out again. Henskelion, our cinematics artist is also busy with studies, meaning that progress has been slowed too, but not for long. As for GDI, well it's just a matter of whether the artist in question has time, I'm going to discuss things with some of our SHP artists and see whether or not we can get things rolling at light speed again! So we have taken quite a blow in terms of staff activity, but things are going to pick up again as from today. Sadly, no, I can not give you a set date on Public Beta 5's release, but that's only because unforeseen consequences are bound to happen if I start making promises on release dates. Never-the-less, looking at the progress that has occurred and how much shorter our to-do-list has grown (with the exception of some faction graphics), we're nearing completion, and whilst it's not just around the corner, it's going to happen! Tiberian Sun modding will not die until we die. **** you, Windows 8! Check out Twisted Insurrection's pages around the web!
  7. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! I am pleased to announce the third Cartographer's Call: Yuri's Revenge Mapping Competition! Hosted over on Project Perfect Mod. The past two Cartographer's Call competitions have been very successful in bringing some faces from all around the modding community over here to take part in making some maps, but this time, we have some extra prizes available so you have all the more reason to compete! Prizes: Along with a custom rank of your choice which will be supplied by Project Perfect Mod's admin, Banshee and as our main prize, a copy of C&C Ultimate Collection up for grabs for the FIRST PLACE WINNER! The C&C Ultimate Collection has all 17 C&C games up to C&C4 and serial key has not been used! It even comes with an authenticated and autographed C&C game art picture in a frame. For more details, rules, judging and all other necessary information, head over to the official thread. Good luck everybody, may the best mapper win!
  8. No. Installation instructions pretty much already state that. Download the Twisted Insurrection launcher, extract it to a clean directory somewhere, run it and you'll be given the option to install Public Beta 4.
  9. The Twisted Insurrection team are very pleased to announce that our latest version, Public Beta 4 has been released! Since the Re-Issue of Public Beta 3, we have been working hard to get more of the essentials out of the way. The changelog is also very large and impressive due-to the short amount of time (In my opinion, at least) since the last release, you can view the changelog here. Public Beta 4 includes several new campaign missions (A total of 8 GDI Missions and 13 Nod missions (8 and 9 are placeholder maps) so far), several new units and unit images, new additions to our unique soundtrack, new voices, options, several new and improved maps, coding and balance changes, gameplay improvements, tons of lag reduction, the implementation of Naval units (still in heavily testing phases at the moment) and much more!Public Beta 4 is our most stable version to date as we have eradicated the source of the most common internal errors and hopefully we wont be seeing any more again (or for a long time at best). Online play is now much simpler to commence now too thanks to the new Twisted Insurrection launcher feature similar to the one used by one of our affiliate projects, The Dawn of the Tiberium Age (which we also recommend you check out if you loved classic Tiberian Dawn!). Sadly as it is still beta, there are still several placeholder images being used, but this will not effect the game-play at all! Pretty soon we hope to get everything finished and finally come out of beta.One of our new staff members, Henskelion, is working on CGI & FMV's for future Twisted Insurrection releases which will be available as soon as possible. If you are new to Twisted Insurrection, check out our website for more information. ' rel='lightbox'>http://ti.ppmsite.com/Public/TIPB4Promo.pngDownload Twisted Insurrection Public Beta 4 Here Note: There will be no Public Beta 5, only patches up to this point thanks to the Launcher feature making this easier. The next release will be Twisted Insurrection 1.0. There will be a big patch update based on Public Feedback around Xmas time, as is our tradition. Enjoy, ladies and gentlemen. We'll be looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
  10. Definitely recommend playing this Mod, whether you liked C&C95 or not. Bittah Commander has done a fantastic job.

    Happy Birthday Aro!

  12. Yeah, since almost everything in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge looked like someone just threw up after too many drinks, I can't see your point. Whilst Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge are great games, the majority of the graphics could do with major improvement, which is just one of the multiple factors that this mod is set out to change. I agree with the saying "Don't fix what isn't broken", but I do agree with "Fix what is fucked!".
  13. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I visited this place. I have announced the first official Twisted Insurrection: Mapping Competition. The rules are simple and easy to follow, but it's suggested that you read through the Twisted Insurrection: Mappers Guide before you attempt to start on a map. Here is a summary of the map competition rules: 1 - Only One map per entrant. 2 - Map remakes from any C&C game are allowed, but they must be remade from scratch, not just modified versions of the originals. 3 - If you post any previews of your maps anywhere before the competition deadline, you will be disqualified and your map will be marked as void and will not be judged in the competition. 4 - You may modify your submission after you have submitted it, but be sure to get the new submission to me (Aro) on time. 5 - Entries must be submitted to Aro (Me) via Private Message by the 22nd of March 2011 (00:00 GMT) 6 - You are not allowed to use the Interior Terrain. 7 - Symmetrical maps are allowed, but will hurt your layout score. 8 - Twisted Insurrection staff members are not allowed to enter the competition. The best maps and winning maps will be included in Twisted Insurrection as an official map selection. The top 3 winners will also receive a Twisted Insurrection banner/signature by default. You may also be able to hold of an early copy of Twisted Insurrection: Public Beta 3 as a main prize. For more information, go to this thread.
