  1. After a long wait, version 3.3.3 of the beloved Yuri's Revenge mod Mental Omega APYR has been released. Aside from technical improvements like Ares 1.0 integration and a new renderer option (DDrawCompat), this release brings new missions (including 3 of 4 Foehn origin story missions), the new Whipray ship for Foehn, the Quick Fort support power for Scorpion Cell, new maps, the long-awaited map editor FinalAlert 2: Mental Omega, ability to change hotkeys, a statistics screen, rebalances, bugfixes, and loads more. Seriously, just check the changelog, there's a lot of important changes. The patch is available for download on ModDB. If you haven't installed it yet, you will require the base 3.3.0 release, and don't forget to grab the soundtrack files as well.
  2. Yesterday, the 0.7 version of Twisted Insurrection, a standalone Tiberian Sun total conversion mod, has been released. This is a pretty huge release, including a new "tech" faction - The Forsaken, 11 new skirmish/multiplayer maps, 14 new music tracks, new and improved unit and building graphics, new voiceovers, various fixes and tweaks, and so much more. You can download the full release here, and the full changelog is available here.

    Not anyone's concern, really. In international Internet spaces, you're expected to write in English only.

    Can you be bothered to speak English in an English-only forum?
  5. Ion Maiden

    'cept it has competent level design and will tie in to Bombshell story-wise. 3D Realms can't make Duke games as Gearbox bought out even the back catalogue 3 years ago, but given the character of Bombshell (who was supposed to appear in the 1998/9 version of DNF) wasn't part of the purchase deal, this is what they're left with.

    In Early Access on Steam, will come out in full in Q3 2018 on Steam and GOG. Genuinely uses the same Build engine (albeit apparently powered by eDuke32) that was used in Duke Nukem 3D, the original Blood, and Shadow Warrior. Even the FPS encyclopaedia Gggmanlives seems to love it:
  7. GameFront Relaunches on March 11th

    We are now live! https://www.gamefront.com
  8. Some time after DBolical bought the rights to the GameFront name and logo in 2016, they were joined by former GameFront staff that was then found on a forum called FilesNation. Since last summer, building an entirely new site commenced, and now it will relaunch. As someone who is involved with the project, I hope you guys will like the new site design and maybe help recreate the modding communities that GameFront was known for.
  9. Stardock, the publisher who brought us Galactic Civilizations, Sins of a Solar Empire and Ashes of the Singularity, has started releasing videos about general RTS design. Since TheMachine from the GeneralsGentlemen duo is now their employee, he's made two videos in this series so far. It's nice to know he even takes inspiration from C&C
  10. Scrin = Ancient Humans?

    Hey! Jellyfish have feelings too.
  11. Now Playing - Games

    Playing quite a lot of Stronghold Crusader with a bit of Stronghold vanilla on the sides. How FireFly Studios managed to squander the potentials of every single sequel to these games is beyond me.

  13. It's time for another Throwback Thursday! Today, we feature the iconic GDI unit from the first Command & Conquer from 1995, the original Mammoth Tank. This tracked monstrosity had dual cannons with which it punched 120mm holes through any armour, while it countered infantry and aircraft with its twin missile launchers. It was as expensive and slow as it was massive and powerful, and was the only iteration of this vehicle that required a Repair Facility instead of a Tech Center equivalent to be built. In every Command & Conquer game that was released afterwards, except for the Pogo-exclusive browser games, the Mammoth Tank or a redesigned equivalent made an appearance. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.
  14. Some people just want sounds or music from Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath extracted. So here's the way you need to do it, short and simple. Should also apply to Red Alert 3, Uprising, and Tiberian Twilight. If you have Kane's Wrath/Uprising, don't bother extracting files from the base game, all is contained in the expansions. Tools you'll need: C&C Asset Extractor by Bibber any BIG editor (I recommend OS BIG Editor because it doesn't derp as soon as it sees a remotely large file). Steps: In your BIG editor, go to your TW/KW directory, then to Core\1.0\GlobalStream.big (general audio and music) or [Language]Audio\1.0\[Language]Audio.big (voiceovers specific to a language) Extract all the files to a folder of your choosing (careful not to mix it up with anything else). Your BIG editor may go unresponsive for a few minutes until everything's extracted. Open C&C Asset Extractor, browse to the folder you created for this data and open data\global_common.manifest (for GlobalStream) or data\global_[language].manifest (for voiceovers). In the lower-left box of the Asset Extractor, tick the "Full Assets Only" option. If done correctly, you should be getting quite a large list of files. Click on any entry with the "AudioFile" prefix. Preview it if you wish, then use Edit -> Extract Sources... to any location of your choosing. In that location, you now have a WAV and an XML file.

  17. Does anyone here invest in Bitcoin?

    Maybe, but illegal activities are among the few actual practical uses of cryptocurrencies.
  18. After quite a long time without an official release, Totem Arts released the 5.31 patch for Renegade-X. This patch adds the team commander mechanic, restores the old Field map and removes Valley and Glasses, updates the radio/vote menu, makes numerous balance changes, improves performance of the 64-bit client executable, adds a scope to the Laser Rifle, adds classic vehicles, and much more. Click here to read the full changelog, and here to download the game if you haven't already.

  20. In the last minutes of the day, we bring you our Throwback Thursday feature, this time remembering the unit that has single-handedly opened so many discussions on balance in Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge - the Boomer Submarine. As is Yuri's only combatant naval unit, it is available already with a Psychic Radar built. However, it is as potent as it is expensive: for $2000 a piece, you get a cross between the Typhoon Attack Sub and a somewhat weaker Dreadnought. It was well-armoured, too, so belated counters did not always prevent these destructive ships from dealing considerable damage. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week.

  21. Board/card games

    In the past few years, I've been involved in the local board gaming scene and helped run a few conventions. Thus, I've had the opportunity to play numerous board/card games in relatively short periods of time, and through that meet some nice people with whom I wouldn't have had any contacts with. Many of these games are simply amazing, from the introductory Settlers of Catan, through the ever-engaging Avalon and the intriguing Scythe, to the arena shooter(!?) Adrenaline. There is literally no niche in board games that hasn't been covered, so there's something for everyone, and more and more are being developed from big companies and small teams alike. What games do you play, what are your experiences? Let's start a thread.

    Are you insulting South Korean StarCraft players?
  24. Board/card games

    Played Ticket To Ride: Europe. Apart from having an obnoxiously inaccurate city placement, it's quite fun. Also, Cottage Garden isn't as lame as it sounds.
