    What's Happening with CNCNZ.com?

    Some of us care enough to keep reminding you that Nod's unit list is missing the Attack Buggy after months and months of being ignored. It's not that I'm trying to include a negative comment in over here, I'm just tired of people not caring for little things like that, not respecting the classics but at the same time claiming to be a true C&C fan/fansite. I mean come on, it's the third time I've pointed this out and still nothing... inserting that tiny pic and adding two lines of text too much work or something? I've posted stuff like this in the past when you asked us to report bugs, problems and all that, pointing out certain instances of missing info and stuff like that and it's been somewhere around 2 years and still nothing. As far as I can tell, Sonic, if it's not an issue with the site's primary functions or download pages, you don't care much about fixing stuff like that and I'm not at all happy about CNCNZ not honoring the past games by ignoring user-reported issues. I mean really, you once said you wrote those unit lists up from TS's manual and because there was no buggy unit in there (manual fail) you didn't include it? What kind of a "true fan" turns a blind eye to stuff like that? I bet you don't even play any of the older C&C games anymore... not everything worthwhile is exclusively in the new and improved next-gen gaming sensations you know... albeit, focusing on the future of C&C isn't at all a bad thing. Lastly, I like this site and it's community, regardless of my personal opinions on various subjects and certain people that I bumped into in my time here, and it would be a real shame for CNCNZ to shut down. With that in mind and with all due respect to your health, private life, working hours and everything else - please try and be more honest with yourself and your site regarding the true fan community status it has, because a true fan doesn't forget to honor the things that made C&C what it is in the first place. And I'm not questioning your dedication nor attacking you as a person, just trying to really remind you that some of us have a bit more emotional connection to C&C that one might think and that you should put a bit of care in what bothers the rest of us in CNCNZ's image and both inner and outer workings - fans are what make this site great, not the site itself. Remember that. I'm sorry for spitting this out in here, but I felt a very strong need to say it. And don't worry, you won't hear this from me again, so please try to understand my concern.

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for the ~10th time (I love that game, unlike Blacklist) and a bit of Global Operations.

    Anyone playing Renegade X?

    Nmenth and I happend to play at the same time a couple of times on the Jelly marathon server. Also saw Aircraftkiller on there too one round on Field being all negative and giving off comments on how the lens flares are horrible and what not... It's the Jelly marathon server for me if anyone wants to take a shot at me.

    Red Alert Development Dates

    Well, we could ask the "Reboot" gaming magazine authors, since some of them were in the Hacker team a while back if I'm not mistaken... It's worth a shot PW, just have to double check on that.

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

    I'm not fond of it either, but when I looked at the price tag and what it usually costs I just grabbed it off of there just for the sake of trying it out. I've got some extra space on my hard drive so I figured why not...Hope some of you L4D fans got it in time.

    Red Alert Development Dates

    I'll get to work on getting us quality scans as soon as I manage to fix my Canon scanner which is acting up at the moment. Shouldn't take too long. Might as well scan the old Hacker issue that contained the TS review and info about the trip to Prague (for reporters, magazines, news groups...) if I'm not mistaken. Though that second one was already covered by Plokite_Wolf, it could just use some page rescans for better image quality.

    Malwarebytes False Positive on XCC Mixer

    Yeah, I've just checked and can confirm your finding. The XCC Mixer .exe file is listed as a threat, probably due to it's nature, with it being a tool for digging around files and all. I've never had any problems with my version, so it should be safe. Can anyone else confirm this?

    A good heads-up page for various promotional giveaways and stuff like that right here.

    New & Improved CNCNZ.com Launched

    The addition of Sole Survivor is a step up in it's own right, but I just noticed another thing and I have to ask why is the Ultimate Collection listed in the games list, for example? Wouldn't just leaving them in the separate section be more appropriate for released game packs?

    New & Improved CNCNZ.com Launched

    I like the new site's design, it's pretty sleek. But on to another tiny matter... A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I pointed out that the Attack Buggy was missing from Nod's Tiberian Sun unit list on CNCNZ's main site. A small thing like that is probably low on the priority list compared to bug fixes and site upgrades, but for it to stay neglected for such a long time isn't really something a community site that praises itself for being a community veteran and keeping C&C alive should be proud of. So it would be a good idea to input any missing content and fix missleading information to go along with the site's new look.

    ModDB Mod of the Year 2013 voting starts now

    It's funny how in the Indie game category, Renegade X - one of my favorites, has been placed right beside The Red Solstice which is being developed by a Croatian team called Ironward. I met them at the Reboot InfoGamer 2013 gaming and tech fair in Zagreb, a great bunch of people right there. Almost forgot to vote for their top-down space marines tactical shooter thingy.
  13. CNCNZ could go for a Roundtable or something to finish off 2013.

    1. PurpleGaga27


      I was really looking forward to a new CNCNZ Roundtable this year, but after Gamescom and the cancellation of the C&C F2P, everything fell apart and Sonic is still busy.

    2. Sonic


      New look site goes live soon so we should be able to get a Roundtable done before the month is done.

    3. AZ-Stalker


      Good to hear. A lot has transpired so ending the year with a Roundtable would be a nice touch.

    Looking for TS Images

    I'm looking for any and all higher resolution Tiberian Sun era images (excluding mods), preferably larger than 1024x768 if any such pictures exist. I need large clean pictures wheather it's concept art, menu graphics, loading screens or just atmospheric/thematic things like this for example. Please note that I haven't fully searched TS's .mix files for in-game resources, though I kind of doubt I'll find any larger pictures in there. I'm well aware of the fact that in that early part of C&C's era there were only small and medium sized images compared to today's high resolution standards. Any help with finding any kind of larger images would be greatly appreciated.

    Looking for TS Images

    Heh, the Cybergooch page is an oldie but goldie. Though I've already had my run around the site in the past. I was hoping to find some Nod high(er) resolution stuff primarily, but I haven't had much luck recently. @Plokite_Wolf, didn't you already send me that pack of yours? Unless you put some extra stuff in there, I think I got everything included.

    Renegade X, Twisted Insurrection
  17. Getting to see all the artwork and media embeded in the game files would surely benefit the community as well as the C&C Wiki. The new C&C could fade away over time without support and we all know that EA doesn't care much about past assets, which they could very well lose over time. So why not try and salvage what we can?

    Farewell to WinAmp

    It should still be good as a standalone program, right? Doing it's thing, at least for the near future.

    Farewell to WinAmp

    I never stopped using Winamp as a primary audio player. Great piece of software indeed. A shame to see it go.
  20. I can already smell the future version of today's microtransactions... EA doesn't learn from their mistakes. They don't care. They only make fake attempts to make fans/consumers/gamers temporarily forget everything they did that made things worse. They'll always put monetary gain before the joy and fun of gaming itself, so I'm not going to get my hopes up this time since they've clearly proven what they're capable of doing (in a negative manner) to both C&C and everything else they touch.
  21. Getting real tired of all this... I'd rather they just shut up and continue with the C&C franchise after they get their heads on straight. Lets hope they actually give the next game a proper title this time... IF they really intend on making one.
  22. Although I actually like action packed turned based combat (XCOM for example), the modifications you are currently doing to improve the combat system to be more "C&C themed" are coming along quite nicely. Stick with realtime combat if you can and try to try out different approaches to the task at hand. If needed, set us up with a combat test map with various scenarios to get more accurate feedback.
