  1. 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:
  2. A YouTube mirror is now live:
  3. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  10. 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.

    Louis Castle Interviewed by Game Informer

    Oh gee, 15:03 debunks fanboytards worldwide, just like I always said.
  12. Westwood Studios co-founder Louis Castle is doing quite a few interviews lately. The latest one in this spree of retrospective conversations is for Game Informer, where he spoke about the Command & Conquer series, but also many other periods from his long career. Definitely worth a watch!
  13. Over a year ago, Ars Technica launched an amazing video series called War Stories, in which they interview developers of classic video games and ask them about a major problem they faced during development and how they tackled it. The most recent episode features Westwood Studios' co-founder Louis Castle, who talked about the issue of pathfinding in C&C: Tiberian Sun, which had already had a lot of other development issues. This is Castle's second feature on the show, as he discussed the influence of the 1997 Blade Runner game on the adventure genre in the preceding episode that you should also watch.
  14. True to his apparently monthly reports on the Command & Conquer remasters, EA producer Jim Vessella posted on Reddit just now: The poll is in a separate Reddit thread that you can upvote individual tracks on, but not reply. Get voting for your favourite tracks, Frank is sure to do something super-awesome with them, whatever that something may be.
