  1. Another PC Gamer article Q&A of the week. For everyone's mind to answer this question, it could be any game with lootboxes. For me I have two answers, Half-Life 2 and Bioshock. Why..... Bioshock --> full of leftover bugs unpatched except for the remastered version Half-Life 2 --> settings and designs are less exciting than the original... plus it used to have DRM in Steam

    Free giveaway on promotional game(s) -- post them here

    Braveland is free to get on Steam for 24 hours: https://store.steampowered.com/app/285800/Braveland/
  3. 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.

    AMD & Nvidia Desktop Graphics Cards Thread

    A 16 GB video card only for crypto mining? Who needs that when mining isn't profitable as of now: https://www.pcgamer.com/sapphire-says-gpu-mining-is-making-a-comeback-outs-a-16gb-radeon-rx-570 Also a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has been rumored: https://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-is-rumored-to-be-readying-a-geforce-gtx-1660-ti-graphics-card/ Well video cards are getting more expensive with each new generation, thanks to a weakened US dollar value, cryptocurrency and better features. Probably the next low-entry level GeForce card may exceed $100 USD and lowest mid-range GeForce card may exceed $200 USD.
  5. Yep. Still alive and kicking..... and so is Tiberium Alliances.
  6. Pretty soon it's RIP Windows 7 (2009-2023?). While free security updates to Win7 will end on Jan 14, 2020, paid security updates for Win7 Ultimate/Enterprise will extend three years longer. I mean, who wants to pay for future security updates as if they are DLC? https://www.pcgamer.com/this-is-the-last-year-microsoft-will-dish-out-free-security-updates-for-windows-7/ After 2020, all future C&C remastered games released by EA may run on Windows 10 and 64-bit..... and so will all other future games. I probably won't go full Win10 64-bit just yet unless Nvidia, Steam, Origin and all other cloud apps no longer support Win7, and Win10 is significantly improved, and I need a new PC.

    Noob question from newbie

    Well I think you could have been more patient. Have you read the RA3 Mod SDK FAQs thread in this RA3 modding page? I don't know if I have the time to help you, and I need to reinstall RA3 with the ModSDK in order to help. I bet Bibber has not answered your request. How about giving Gunship_MK_II a PM request in ModDB? He's the only RA3/HL modder I could think of who's active at this time and he has done a lot of modding for quite some time (like I used to): https://www.moddb.com/members/gunship-mk-ii

    Rivals isn't that bad

    Sorry but the remastered C&C games will STILL be better than this game. Strange now the average rating for this game in Google Play is a 4-star.
  9. I might play again if only they brought in new factions and new commanders. But right now, they're just putting out new features and units instead.

    Noob question from newbie

    There's one thing I forgot to mention, have you looked in the Error Log of that Mod Buildstudio every time you compile the mod?

    Free giveaway on promotional game(s) -- post them here

    Blast Zone! Tournament is temporarily free to get in Steam as an early access game until Jan. 16.

    Noob question from newbie

    The screenshot you mentioned about the Gunship only carries the AptUI which is the portrait texture image you can in-game and that can be triggered via LogicCommand and LogicCommandSet. The faction of the unit and "commandset" in the game object needs to match with the LogicCommand. I believe you need the art and sound assets for that unit, which I believe it may come with the RA3 Mod SDK (the extended version by Bibber).

    Noob question from newbie

    Did the samplemod of that Harbinger Gunship come with art and sound assets? I no longer mod RA3 anymore, so I cannot recall how it's done. RA3 modding is different than C&C3 modding. For further help, ask Bibber via ModDB in a PM or email him: info@bibber.eu

    Desktop CPU Thread

    AMD is introducing 7nm CPUs and GPUs to the market: https://www.pcworld.com/article/3332146/amd/amd-3rd-gen-ryzen-radeon-vii.html Expect for a faster octa-core processor with energy efficiency soon with AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen chips.

    Noob question from newbie

    I supposed you either used Bibber's RA3 Upheaval source code or my RA3 Reloaded source code to get a Harbinger Gunship in-game. Remember a Harbinger Gunship is an aircraft. So if you building it from a barracks, make sure it's built as the infantry define, not aircraft.

    AMD & Nvidia Desktop Graphics Cards Thread

    Nvidia finally will release the GeForce RTX 1060 with this review: https://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2060-review Still no word on the upcoming GeForce RTX 1050 and 1050 Ti yet.

    C&C Community News - 6 January 2019

    This is what I saw in YouTube:
  21. WTH? A website that's a lootbox retail site? Amazon would never do that. https://www.pcgamer.com/loot-box-gambling-and-youtubers-team-up-to-ruin-2019-as-quickly-as-possible
  22. FYI about loot boxes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loot_box Well I haven't tried opening this discussion thread ever since the Battlefront II fiasco involving loot boxes as microtransactions. Some countries and now including Hawaii USA are claiming that loot boxes is a form of gambling and are considering a ban (or limit) of sales from that game and possibly future games using that method. The only microtransactions I would accept are cosmetics and optional content used in free-to-play games. When developers are getting tired of making bigger and better single-player games (unlike what CD Projekt is doing to Cyberpunk 2077), developers decided to make free-to-play games that gives you the option to pay-to-win to unlock special content and progress further. BUT NOT EA!!! They decided to make a retail game that still require a pay-to-win format involving loot boxes. Battlefront II isn't the only game using that piece of crap but the upcoming EA Sports UFC 3 is getting more scrutiny of using the same thing: http://metro.co.uk/2017/12/01/ea-sports-ufc-3-under-fire-for-microtransactions-and-loot-boxes-7125274/ Even PC Gamer ran another article on how the future of gaming could be regulated: http://www.pcgamer.com/loot-boxes-are-bad-but-new-legislation-could-be-worse/ Just how bad can loot boxes and other microtransactions go? While PC gaming is declining, this idea of loot boxes as a form of monetization just absolutely sucked big time. And this documentary video pretty much sums more up:
  23. Children thought so, but adults... not really. The fact remains that the original Santa Claus was St. Nicholas who started the gifts of Christmas, and then many people were inspired to become like him... even through today. Well it isn't Christmas yet, and now Santa Claus' original tomb has been discovered.... in Turkey?! (not the north pole?) https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/10/04/santa-dead-archaeologists-say/

    Avengers: Infinity War

    As Luk3us once said on the Expendables 2 cast and movie, holy mother of God..... Well finally the answer to the Expendables cast is here, Marvel's version of the Expendables. The Avengers and Guardians will team up in this epic movie coming May 2018 and almost every great Marvel character is included except the Fantastic Four, X-Men and some other characters. And yes, there's a sequel to that too coming in 2019. Official first trailer: This is the comic-con poster for the movie: The budget to do this movie should be bigger than the fourth movie of Pirates of the Caribbean (around $410 million USD gross amount). The back-to-back production of this movie coming in May 2018 and its sequel coming in 2019 were rumored to be about $1 billion USD which is berserk (and it's not a final amount). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_of_Avengers:_Infinity_War_and_the_untitled_Avengers_sequel Will you watch it?

    The last phenomenon pic/vid I had seen was the China industrial incident several years ago. Now New York City last night has this: Source: https://www.npr.org/2018/12/28/680631845/no-evidence-of-extraterrestrial-activity-nypd-says-as-city-is-bathed-in-blue-lig
