  1. The C&C 3: The Forgotten mod for Tiberium Wars, over 9 years after its previous update, just had a new release. Version 1.2.0 rebalances the Forgotten units, adds a new Fissure Tank projectile model by Egozi44, and fixes a typo in the Veinhole Monster superweapon's description. It's always nice to see old mods resume development!
  2. That last batch looks pretty neat.
  3. For many years now, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge required elaborate procedures to run smoothly on newer systems. Earlier today, CnCNet released an update for their Yuri's Revenge client, version 4.27, which incorporates compatibility fixes (black screen, Alt+Tab), a wider range of screen resolutions in the ingame menus, LAN capabilities and campaign speed sliders for the singleplayer installations of both Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. This means that you can just install the latest version of the client and run RA2/YR outside that client as you normally would for playing campaigns. It is, however, primarily meant for The First Decade and The Ultimate Collection versions of the games. You owe it to yourselves to get this update. Simply run your existing version of the YR client and let it download the latest update automatically, or if you don't already have it, get it from CnCNet's website.
  4. We've neglected the community side of the news in recent times, so here is a run-down of what's been happening in April: W3D Hub has included full C&C Renegade support to their launcher, updated their 3DS Max 2017 tool, and released Red Alert: A Path Beyond version 3.4.0.0. The site Arcade Attack has posted an interview with ex-Westwood and current Petroglyph programmer Mike Legg, talking about his work on Dune, Command & Conquer, Legend of Kyrandia and more. The Second Tiberium War, a standalone Tiberian Sun mod, was updated to version 2.1, including a full-length singleplayer campaign! The Ares DLL for Yuri's Revenge was updated to version 2.0p1, basing itself on the publicly unknown 2.0 from last September. It is now possible for units to deploy to different unit types than their original one.

    First C&C Remastered Renders Published

    I will never understand people who see "cartoony" designs in everything. Stylized and in certain aspects simplified even, sure. But cartoony? Wut?
  6. Less than an hour ago, EA producer Jim Vessella posted this first piece of art that will be used in Command & Conquer: Remastered - a faithfully recreated Construction Yard in GDI gold colours, along with a development update. He had this to say on the C&C subreddit:
  7. A YouTube mirror is now live:
  8. Even though GDC 2019 ended just over two weeks ago, the Command & Conquer Post-Mortem with Louis Castle, Erik Yeo, Steve Wetherill and Frank Klepacki has just now been made publicly viewable on the GDC Vault website. Have a look at how the original C&C was made!

    RA2 In-Game Problem

    I think it's due to an error with permissions for writing into the system registry while installing the game. The game itself may install fine but if it doesn't have permissions to write necessary registry files (including the serial key), the DRM system triggers and the result is well-known. Installation with admin privileges is a must.

    Blast from the past

    He's such a noob sometimes.
  11. Eric Alan Martin, a Las Vegas actor who is best known to the Command & Conquer community for portraying General Mark Sheppard in the original 1995 game, sadly passed away earlier today. Despite a large turnout for a fundraiser meant to help covering his medical and other bills, and his strong desire to fight on, his medical condition was unable to improve. His sister-in-law, Tammy Martin, posted this in an update on the GoFundMe page: Our condolences go to his family and friends.
  12. While most of you have never heard of the name Eric Martin, you will definitely remember the line "Are you picking this up?" from the beginning of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. Well, the connection is that Eric Martin is the actor who played General Mark Sheppard in the game. Through Frank Klepacki social media profiles, we've learned that Martin is in a bad medical condition and that his sister-in-law launched a fundraiser campaign to help cover the costs of his treatment and everyday bills alike, as his insurance company is not being at all helpful in the situation. Let's help him out, even a little bit!

    Daily C&C Trivia

    Not really the topic to be in for this discussion, but game assets change as development time goes on. In some games it happens more than in others, though these days few developers bother to change their early assets. But back in the mid/late 90s, devs were not above manipulating images with Photoshop-alikes to make promo images for the public. Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert 2 are particularly guilty of that. There are more WIP screenshots in our gallery, and at CnC-Comm.
  15. On Friday, W3D Hub posted a pretty intense update on what they've been doing behind the scenes lately. Apart from a new intro that goes with their logo inspired by Westwood's 1998-2003 orb logo and a run-down of what they've accomplished from their 2018 roadmap, they've announced that the W3D Hub launcher now supports the regular C&C Renegade with the option of installing the latest version of Scripts, an announcement for the W3D Kit that will accomodate many needs of Renegade modders, a new wiki for W3D engine development called the Tacitus, and last but definitely the most, the first public release of W3D tools for 3D Studio Max 2017 that is meant to support model formats from C&C Renegade, C&C Generals/Zero Hour and the Battle for Middle-earth titles. More details can be found in their official post.
