    AMD & Nvidia Desktop Graphics Cards Thread

    The GeForce RTX 3000 series have been revealed: https://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-ampere-30-series-announcement/?utm_content=buffer5339c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=buffer-pcgamertw Also this: https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/nvidia-ampere-release-date-price-specs-3972062 How many people would buy a GeForce RTX 3090 to substitute a Titan card? Over 10000 config cores, 24 GB of GDDR6X VRAM, 350W of power (but using a 12-pin connector), 8K gaming compatible and the cost of $1499 USD! That's enough to last a decade of goodness.

    Your System Specs - Post them here

    Meh, I wasn't there for the C&C remasters. I am for Cities Skylines which is a game that needed a lot of CPU and RAM power. I might need to upgrade a new video card soon, possibly aiming for a GeForce RTX 3060 with a much better smoother 4K gaming. Also in need are a 4K monitor and a 1TB SSD on a PCI-Express chip so I can install any game that is 100+ GB.

    C&C Dawn of Tomorrow 1.2 Content Update Released

    I am playing on the latest version, which is 1.2. And thanks for the file though.

    C&C Dawn of Tomorrow 1.2 Content Update Released

    Somehow this game runs better on Windows 10 than on Windows 7 due to less video stability issues. However there's a problem with one of the missions, particularly in the Company of Answers campaign, the one part where you have to destroy all enemy structures. The bug occurred after I destroy everybody and nothing happens. Also that mission lacked the ability to build a war factory airfield (which can automatically send in a reinforced unit every so number of seconds) despite only two rangers and two overseers.

    Jessie Frye's Kiss Me In The Rain album is out. Best American synthwave I have heard in a long time coming from a Texan who really knows her stuff.

    Direct & Dominate: Absolute Units Episode 3 Released

    This looks better than what Zee Hypnotist (aka Rabbit) did in C&C/Tiberium Legos years ago. This is pure C&C CGI at its finest.

    Not only Nina's Synthian is my favorite song of 2020, but also it could be possibly my favorite album of 2020 as well. You're going to love her music. As for an encore, why not throw in the Sleepwalking album as well?

    C&C Remasters - FMVs

    Not bad, Mr. Flibble. Maybe if you finished modifying some of those FMVs, release them as a mod for C&C Remastered, and even Red Alert Remastered as well.

    This could be the greatest TBS game of all time!

    This game feels like a spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Alpha Centari and all other crappy war mobile games with microtransactions. But it feels like this had come a bit too late in this decade. However, Cities Skylines IMO with mods, assets and DLCs is way more complex than this.
  11. I know modding Red Alert Remastered is a piece of cake since you can just put rules.ini and aftrmath.ini in the original directory (which is CnCRemastered). But what about C&C Remastered? I remember back then I had to use Koen's TibEd to edit CNC95.exe that pretty much serves the in-game rules. If there's no other tool to do this, unless EA/Petroglyph releases a modding tool for that game, I think Koen needs to develop TibEd 3.0 just for the C&C remastered games.
  12. I never thought I would want to post this here, but for the first time ever, I decided to post a thread asking you guys to post any free giveaway on game(s) that are temporarily free to get and download without any paying cost (whether if it's from Steam, Origin or whatsoever). At least it's better than paying up front. Please do not post MP only games here. Last year, Metro 2033 was the last best free DirectX 11 game to download (via THQ's FB) until EA gave away a free promo code for Battlefield 3 which happened two months ago. I also missed last year's Origin free promo code that should have given me a free download of any game priced at $19.99 or under. As of now only seven games in Origin are permanently free to download. I do not know how many games in Steam are permanently free to download as of now. So far I missed three opportunities at getting C&C4 for free, really, unless someone in the C&C community still has an unused code specifically for that game and use it into Origin.

    Finally a synthwave song dedicated to C&C, except for some mixed reaction from some who didn't feel like it was a C&C track: Nina's 2nd smashing album Synthian is here: https://ninasounduk.bandcamp.com/album/synthian-deluxe-edition

    Like someone had commented from Reddit, Joe Kucan's face hasn't been aged for over a decade!

    C&C Dawn of Tomorrow released!

    Thanks for releasing the mod, Kikakon. However have you fixed the loading map bug of Company of Answers mission 6 as well as fixing stability issues when playing videos? I still haven't find a way to bypass those issues.
  16. You were aiming for the CGI (or animated) rather than drawing manually. However.... At least I like the drawing of the original Cartoon & Conquer.
  17. Well Win10 is free to upgrade for a year via Windows Update regardless of which OS you are using. But did you know, Microsoft has done something that even neither Windows 8 and lower versions had, a free manual download of the full version of Windows 10 in an ISO file!!!!!!! Last time I have seen a free manual download was a Windows 8 Enterprise that doesn't apply to other versions of Windows (such as Home or Pro editions). Unless you have a valid serial number, that OS will only work for 180 days before you must activate Windows (which I hate unlike other OSs that are not Windows). Also if you are upgrading from a Win10 Tech Preview to the full/upgraded version to Win10, the current serial number from the Tech Preview may not work. It does not work for me even following from this article: http://goodereader.com/blog/technology/how-to-upgrade-to-windows-10-from-technical-preview Here's the manual download link for those who could not upgrade via Windows Update: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/ Note that Windows 10 Single Language is the multilanguage version of Windows which lets you select a language that is preinstalled in Windows. Also note that the Windows 10 N is the European version, and Windows 10 KN is the Korean version. Both the N and KN versions do not come with media components unless those can be downloaded as an option: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

    Trailer of Dawn of Tomorrow released

    So I played the total-mod converted game and unfortunately the video performance is still having issues when loading videos, even on a map selection (and it hangs too). There are two missions during the game which had possible loading issues the author mentioned in the readme, so maybe that part needs to be fixed ASAP before releasing the whole thing. Even I thought about hitting the trainer or cheats section which currently don't exist under the latest version of C&C95 from Nyerguds. Come to think of it after a long decade of developing a mod for C&C95 with limitations, the game isn't as stable as I thought to be. But still it's a challenging game.
  19. I think no one has discussed this here, but some people did in Discord and Reddit. Australia wildfires, US vs Iran, Trump impeachment, Kobe RIP, Coronavirus (people still blame on China), unexpected climate change, now earthquakes. What's next? War? Invasion? Even as of today, I still think Trump is part alien and a laughingstock because he still doesn't know how to handle government politics seriously. Well guess what, more US citizens are dying (including carnage) under his administration, possibly the most in any US president's history. About half of the world is in a shutdown. And if Coronavirus could kill over 10 million people globally if there's no vaccine, treatment or cure in time, Joseph Stalin would say it's just a statistic.

    Still waiting to see if a Hell March Remastered track will ever come other than in-game.

    Well, yes. I never hear of total mod conversions like this one for C&C95. What was impossible back then somehow made it possible now.

    Lady Gaga - Stupid Love, and Rain On Me (ft. Ariana Grande) Both are seemingly dope songs, but her recent music don't quite fit with the cyberpunk style music videos, unlike the ones in the synthwave/retrowave genre.

    Trailer of Dawn of Tomorrow released

    Looks really good! I'll bet it's using OpenRA to make this possible, noticing other terrains used from C&C Red Alert.

    The most popular anime for kids has been around for over a decade and it's still popular in YouTube, Masha and the Bear. Russia's anime somehow got that better than typical Japanese anime. American anime continues to suck with the exception of 3D animation movies. The Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park need to end.
