  2. In his first update after the release of the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, producer Jim Vessella has shown appreciation for the positive response following the release, shouted out the work of @CCHyper who has immensely helped the project and created the new "installation" sequences, and commented on the upcoming patch. His update, in full, is below: Fellow Command & Conquer fans, The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection has now been live for ten days, and our teams have been absolutely humbled by the response from players and journalists around the world. I’ve been spending the past week engrossed in streams, articles, and community comments about the game, trying to absorb every piece of feedback players are providing. But at the same time, also just smiling as I observe players being transported back to their childhood with waves of nostalgia, hopefully providing a positive moment during these times. Congratulations and thank you to everyone in the community for helping to make the launch such a memorable event. I wanted to cover a few topics in today’s post. The first is to highlight one of the most meaningful features of the Remastered Collection - the Installation Videos. Players from around the world have been loving these sequences, with entire articles being written about the emotional reaction they garnered. But unless you went into the Bonus Gallery to read the details, you may not know that these two videos were not created directly by our development teams, but instead by long-time C&C community member, Luke “CCHyper” Feenan. Luke has been an integral part of our Community Council since the beginning of the project. When I learned Luke was a graphics designer by trade, I asked if he would be willing to remaster the installation sequences into something truly special. He created a five-second test for us, and it was instantly clear he would be able to pour the passion and attention to detail into the project. So we contracted Luke to work with us, and over the course of six months he created the sequences, brainstorming with Petroglyph and myself on how to shift them from an “Installation” sequence to an “Upgrade” sequence. We would review the progress with Luke every two weeks or so to provide feedback, and Luke’s skills and creativity were surpassed only by his professionalism. I’m so proud of Luke for creating content that will go down in C&C history, and that the first thing anyone experiences in the Remastered Collection was created by a member of the C&C community. The second topic I wanted to discuss was our upcoming patch. We’re currently putting the final touches on this patch, as we continue to prioritize and react to player feedback. The goal of this patch is multifold: Complete several of the top community requested features which just missed the launch date, including items like Private Game Lobbies and a choosing sub-factions for RA Quickmatch Address many of the top bugs which have been seen in the launch version, including a potential improvement to the framerate stuttering issue Implement some additional quality-of-life improvements, such as enabling the “Deploy” hotkey to unload APCs and multi-queue units on the Repair Facility in Tiberian Dawn (same now as RA) Iterate on our Quickmatch ruleset to ensure we’re creating the proper foundation for competitive play In total, there should be several dozen items addressed in this patch, and we’ll provide a comprehensive set of patch notes when the patch is released. Regarding the Quickmatch rules, we’ve heard strong and unanimous feedback from our engaged multiplayer competitors. In fact, we’re actually able to make several of these changes on the backend and have decided to implement several of these changes effective later today. The key changes to Quickmatch as requested by the community are the following: Increasing the Game Speed from Normal to Fast Reducing the Starting Units to zero Removing Aftermath units from Quickmatch in Red Alert (due to extreme balance issues) Adding two more maps to the Tiberian Dawn map rotation: Monkey in the Middle, One Pass Fits All We’re hoping the community can play with these changes over the next week and continue to provide us feedback as we strive to improve this mode of the game. Thanks again for all the appreciative words over the past ten days, and please continue to provide your feedback so we can improve your experience with the Remastered Collection. Cheers, Jim Vessella Jimtern

    C&C Remasters - FMVs

    In the latest update on the C&C remasters (this time official!), Jim Vessella takes it to the video format for the first time since the original announcement to address one of the most pressing questions among the members of the community - how the ingame cutscenes will be managed.
  4. To say that yesterday's release of C&C Remastered Collection has been a success would be an understatement. Don't take it from me - SteamDB's charts alone (no data on Origin numbers) showed a peak of 42,587 concurrent players about an hour after launch, and the lowest point still being over 16,000 - something even StarCraft II can wish it has. The demand is so high that the multiplayer server keeps crashing, and the package has topped Steam's top seller page (sorted by relevance) days before release and is not letting go. The game's size turns out largely to be due to the fact that the original MIX files are distributed in their entirety in the game's directory. The source code is also within the directory, so you don't need to bother pulling it from Github. There have been issues with stuttering as well, but the team is aware of this and has proceeded to investigate. As a nice little tribute, the icons of the Tiberian Dawn engineer and the Red Alert grenadier appear to have been modeled after the late John "Totalbiscuit" Bain, who was a big fan of the Command & Conquer franchise. And now, time for subjectivity - I've played it for several hours on launch day, and even though I expected a lot given Jim Vessella's transparency and the very positive vibes from some of my friends who were in the community council, I was still pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the project. It did exactly what it set out to do - not only did it faithfully recreate all the visuals, clean up the audio, and bring all the content from the expansions and console variants, but it also built an unprecedented level of trust that the series is back and there is hope that any future project will follow the same thread of thought. Dear Electronic Arts, as you can see, we have voted with our wallets. As you can see, we bought this not for the games that we have already had for free for over a decade - we bought it to support a kickass team who took their time and effort to make a release as good as it can be. If this were an entirely new title instead of a remaster, I guarantee you the sentiment would have been the same. Unlike the utter trash (and here I am insulting actual trash) that you have tried to give us from 2010 to 2018 and convince us to like it with zero merit, this is what we want - good gameplay, no microtransactions, no nickle-and-diming, and giving a well-suited team the necessary time and freedom to do things right. Was this so hard???
  5. Right now, Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection is available for preload for all those who preordered them on Steam, Origin or through Limited Run Games. This means the game's files will be on your hard drive, but encrypted until the official release time (Friday, 5 June at 17:00 GMT). Also, the source code has already been posted and made publicly visible on Github, written in C++. To access the repository, click here.
  6. In yet another update on the C&C Remastered Collection, Jim Vessella posted about a hot topic among fans - mod support. While C&C games have mostly been moddable thanks to community tools like XCC Utilities, FinalBIG, OS BIG Editor, and numerous others, with only late SAGE games getting semi-proper mod SDKs, this time we'll get full support in the form of one open-sourced DLL per game, and even a sample unit for learning how to mod the new release. Also, he acknowledged the community's desire for LAN multiplayer, but said it will not be in the launch build, though it might pop up in an update. Here's the full update: Fellow Command & Conquer fans, Since the announcement of the Remastered Collection, one of the top questions from the community has been if the game would provide Mod Support. Given the incredible C&C community projects over the past two decades, we appreciated how important this was going to be for the Remastered Collection. It’s time to finally answer the question around Mod Support, but it first requires the reveal of a special surprise for the community. Today we are proud to announce that alongside the launch of the Remastered Collection, Electronic Arts will be releasing the TiberianDawn.dll and RedAlert.dll and their corresponding source code under the GPL version 3.0 license. This is a key moment for Electronic Arts, the C&C community, and the gaming industry, as we believe this will be one of the first major RTS franchises to open source their source code under the GPL. It’s worth noting this initiative is the direct result of a collaboration between some of the community council members and our teams at EA. After discussing with the council members, we made the decision to go with the GPL license to ensure compatibility with projects like CnCNet and Open RA. Our goal was to deliver the source code in a way that would be truly beneficial for the community, and we hope this will enable amazing community projects for years to come. So, what does it mean for Mod Support within the Remastered Collection? Along with the inclusion of a new Map Editor, these open-source DLLs should assist users to design maps, create custom units, replace art, alter gameplay logic, and edit data. The community council has already been playing with the source code and are posting some fun experiments in our Discord channel. But to showcase a tangible example of what you can do with the software, Petroglyph has actually created a new modded unit to play with. So we asked a fun question - “What would the Brotherhood of Nod do if they captured the Mammoth Tank?” Well, one guess is they’d replace the turret with a giant artillery cannon and have it fire tactical nukes! Thus the Nuke Tank was born. This is a unit which is fully playable in the game via a mod (seen in the screenshot above), and we hope to have it ready to play and serve as a learning example when the game launches. Alongside Mod Support, I wanted to be transparent and address a feature which many of you have also been passionate about, which is LAN Play. Earlier this year, we had every intention of including LAN Play in the launch version of the game, but sadly this feature did not make it in time. Unfortunately LAN Play became the key impact of the Covid-19 situation as we realized the challenge of developing / testing a “local area network” feature in a workplace time of social distancing. We understand this feature is vital as both an avenue to play mods in multiplayer, and also to serve as a backup in case the online systems are ever down. We’re bummed this one got away, and will continue to keep this on our priority list going forward. Now in terms of discovering user content, we wanted to take full advantage of the PC platforms to streamline this process. For Steam players, we’re utilizing the Steam Workshop for sharing both maps and mods. Players can subscribe to maps and mods directly in the game’s Community Hub within Steam, or utilize in-game menus to browse / download content as well. Origin players can use the same in-game process for downloading maps but will need to manually install mods into their respective folders outside the game. For both versions, once you’re in the game, you may navigate to the Options / Mods tab where you can then activate the mod. We’re aiming to put together further documentation on uploading content and the entire UGC process around the launch window. Overall, we are incredibly excited to see what the community creates over the coming months. We anticipate some fantastic content for the Remastered Collection itself, some great updates in current community projects as they incorporate the source code, and perhaps we’ll even see some new RTS projects now made possible with the source code under the GPL. One final note we want to emphasize - we’ve done our best to bug fix and prepare these UGC systems for launch, but we have no doubt that once thousands of you begin creating and sharing content, some quirks will be discovered. Please continue to share your experience once the game launches, and let us know how we can continue to improve these tools for your benefit. We look forward to seeing all of you on the battlefield in less than three weeks, and in the meantime please stay healthy, safe, and thanks for all your support and feedback. Cheers, Jim Vessella Jimtern
  7. From around the net, more C&C Remastered news has popped up in the past few weeks, including previews, interviews and videos. There are also 3 new screenshots in 4K quality. Here's a list with hyperlinks to all the recent news on the Remasters: Preview: PC Gamer Preview: PCGamesN Preview: RockPaperShotgun Preview: ScreenRant Preview: WCCFTech First Look at Behind The Scenes Footage from Red Alert 1 First Look at a Remastered GDI FMV Zade (YouTuber) Interviews Frank Klepacki for C&C Remastered (Full Interview coming soon) Three new 4K-resolution Screenshots are available, courtesy of The Games Shed. You can read and watch all of them by clicking on the blue hyperlinks.
  8. Within the past week or so, Petroglyph Games' website has been updated for the first time in many years, showing a more modern design showcasing most of the games they've worked on thus far. What's interesting here is that the site features the first look at Red Alert Remastered in-game, as well as an alternate C&C Remastered logo in the video reel at the top: You can see the full resolution of the split screenshot here. Wonder what the official word on this will be.
  9. Recently, two actors who have left their mark on the Command & Conquer universe have passed away: Gene Dynarski and Dimitri Diatchenko. Gene Dynarski is most familiar to us for his portrayal of Joseph Stalin in the original Red Alert. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he died on 27 February 2020 at the age of 86 in a rehabilitation center in Los Angeles. Dimitri Diatchenko, known in the community for his role of Oleg Vodnik in Red Alert 3, was found dead at the age of 52 in his home in Daytona Beach, after his coworkers had not head from him in several days, according to CNN. They will be missed, and our condolences go to their families and friends.
  10. German YouTuber Amars 90 has opened up a contest for a physical edition of Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection that just had its sales closed. He's already purchased it but wants to give it away to a lucky fan. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment in the embedded video by 28 May 2020, saying why it should be yours. On the next day, he will stream the winner announcement on his Twitch channel, where he will randomly pick a comment. Do note that only European residents can enter due to shipping. CNCNZ.com does not partake in this giveaway, we merely cover it as a piece of news. We are not responsible for any events related to it.
  11. The C&C Remastered Collection reveal trailer has finally premiered, showing all the key features the game will have, most of which have already been announced in previous updates. The game is available for pre-ordering here, and will be available on Origin and Steam, as well as in unique physical collector's editions. It launches on 5th June 2020.
  12. An official C&C stream will go live tomorrow (Tuesday, March 10th) on YouTube at 07:00 Pacific Time (14:00 GMT). Judging by the way it's titled and Jim Vessella's not-so-cryptic hint at some sort of collector's edition, we might be looking at a pre-order window announcement at the very least.
  13. After a good while, we have another update on the C&C remasters. The project has since reached the Content Alpha milestone, meaning all assets have been remastered to at least some degree. EA producer Jim Vessella touched on the topic of multiplayer in the latest update: Fellow Command & Conquer fans, We hope everyone had a great holiday season and their New Year is off to a positive start. For those of us on the Remaster project, we’ve been hard at work over the past two months since our last update. In terms of development progress, we just completed our Content Alpha milestone. This is a huge moment for the project, as it means there are no longer any legacy / placeholder pieces of content in the game. Every frame of animation, every tile of terrain, every second of audio, and every piece of UI has received a remastered pass. This allows us to play both games in a completely remastered fashion, and identify areas we’d like to continue polishing based on feedback from the team, colleagues, and the community. Now, since the announcement of the project, many of you have been asking how Multiplayer will function in the Remaster. So for this update, we wanted to take a deep dive into the components of Multiplayer and describe how we’re approaching this beloved part of the game. At a high level, Multiplayer has effectively been rebuilt for the Remaster. Starting with the backend, Multiplayer now runs on dedicated servers based on Petroglyph’s architecture, with a goal of providing reliable connections and prevent misbehavior. We’ve been playing multiplayer games for several months with our QA teams around the world, and feeling confident about the stability the architecture is providing. Now let’s jump into the actual modes and features. When navigating to the Online portion of the menus, players will first have the ability to host or join custom multiplayer games. Once players join a game lobby, they can choose their team setup, select maps, and set game rules. In terms of rules, we’re aiming to support the most relevant multiplayer options, from starting resources and units to flagging Crates or Visceroids. (Yes, the Visceroid has also been remastered and is as weird as ever) We’re then looking into some additional options based on guidance from the Community Council. You can also chat with other players in the game lobby, and ensure you get the perfect setup for your custom game. Alongside custom games is the introduction of 1v1 Quickmatch for Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert™. Quickmatch will focus on competitive play and utilize an Elo-based matchmaking algorithm. Games will pull from a filtered map pool with set game rules to reduce luck and randomness (For example, no Crates in Quickmatch). To highlight the results, 1v1 Quickmatch will be supported by an in-game leaderboard to track a player’s wins, losses, and points. We’re looking forward to watching the most competitive players go head-to-head and see who can become the top ranking commander in each game. I fondly remember being one of the best C&C3 players in the world for about 2 hours when the game launched, only to be quickly humiliated when competitive players began to learn the game, haha. In a further effort to help modernize the online play experience, we’re also introducing replays into the Remaster. Players will be able to watch replays from their custom and quickmatch games, and we’re currently iterating on the available controls within the replay system itself. In conjunction with the replay system is the addition of Observer mode into both games. Through the Observer mode, players can spectate on live games in-progress (with a small time delay), which we hope will be a valuable tool for shoutcasters and viewers alike. There are then several other multiplayer oriented features which have been requested by the community over the past year. We’re in the process of evaluating these features and will aim to share more in the months ahead. As always, please continue to provide your comments in the thread below. As you all know, 2020 is the 25th year anniversary of Command & Conquer. We expect this to be an exciting year for C&C, and we’re looking forward to celebrating this anniversary with all of you. Cheers, Jim Vessella Jimtern The original post is here.
  14. After his suspicious silence in November, Jim Vessella posted on the C&C subreddit a short while ago about the announcement voice lines in C&C and Red Alert 1. It turns out that the original recordings could not be found. However, the voice actress of the Tiberian Dawn EVA, Kia Huntzinger, will reprise the role and has already re-recorded her lines in a professional studio. Alas, the voice actor of the Red Alert announcer, former chief of Virgin Interactive Entertainment Martin Alper, passed away a few years ago, but it was decided his voice lines will stay as they are, while Frank Klepacki will try to clean the audio as much as possible. Here is the full statement from Vessella: You can read the original announcement and hear the new EVA voice samples here.
  15. A most unlikely event has just occurred - beta version 0.09c of Command & Conquer: Red Alert has been discovered. The exact source and date of this build is unknown, but the person who found it is Siberian_GRemlin, whom Russian fans may know for his translations of earlier games in the series. Here are some of the differences: there are no countries (subfactions) yet some previously unseen cutscenes appear, including the long-lost shipyard one certain removed voice lines appear, including "It is done" and "Time for a little five-finger discount" which we would only hear in the track Radio 2 Remix rudimentary skirmish AI dev build of the map editor with debug keys a sprite believed to be the cut commando Megan is present TaxOwlbear got the build early while it was being verified by CCHyper, Nyerguds, Tore and Chad from CnCNet, which is what you see above. More information can be found here, and the download link is here.
  16. EA producer Jim Vessella, true to his monthly schedule of remaster updates, has today posted about the in-game soundtracks and the jukebox feature, including some comments from veteran composer Frank Klepacki, and a sample of some of the remastered tracks - Act on Instinct, Demolition, and Fogger. Fellow Command & Conquer fans, I wanted to start this post by saying I’ve seen all the comments with the desire to see in-game footage, and thought it would be helpful to provide some context on the timing here. Essentially, we want to make sure we have all the supporting assets in place (like an updated C&C website) before revealing the in-game content. This will allow us to utilize some more flexible media components for the reveal, and ultimately help our awareness so we can get more gamers excited about C&C and the Remaster (which is beneficial for all of us). And while I cannot provide an exact date, getting all this in place is one of my top priorities and I’m crossing my fingers it can happen soon. But overall, our gameplay implementation is right on schedule, with Petroglyph currently focusing on getting the Nod campaign all stitched together. In the meantime, we wanted to share some special content with you for this post. If you remember, earlier this year we asked the community to provide input on our approach for the soundtrack, including what versions of the tracks you wanted to see in the Remaster. All of us on the team listened intently, and we heard a general consensus for having the most variety possible. So with that request in hand, we pushed hard to include all the versions of the tracks. This means the classic low fidelity versions (without voices), the original soundtrack versions now remastered (with voices), and then of course the Remastered versions of all classic tracks. This will also include many of the rare / unreleased tracks, several of which have never been heard before in higher fidelity. But getting there wasn’t always easy, and here’s an overview from Frank describing the remastering experience: “The process of going through every single piece of music and bringing it to a higher quality standard has been quite a journey back in time for me, and I’m really glad that all of these tracks will finally be heard in full high quality for the remastered game experience. After combing all possible archives, a handful of tracks were just nowhere to be found – this included ‘Snake’ and ‘Fogger’ from C&C Red Alert. One thing that I did back in the Westwood era, was mirror my home studio with the same gear I had at work, and fortunately I had kept much of it all these years. So I started there, and I went to painstaking detail and trial and error to track down and match as much of the exact original sounds and instrumentation I could find, to recreate these songs from scratch in order to have the best high quality versions once again for the remaster. Hearing these new versions, especially in stereo now, is a whole new experience.” To add it all up, between the classic and remastered versions of the tracks, we’re clocking in at over 10 hours worth of music across 175 tracks! Now, with that much music and variety, we figured players would need a way to organize all the music content. So we are excited to share that the Jukebox will be making a full comeback in the Remaster, and be more enhanced than ever before. The Jukebox will allow players to create their own playlist utilizing any combination of music to their desire. Easy to use filters help the sorting process, and for the first time you can listen to Red Alert music in Tiberian Dawn or vice versa. This feature was a labor of love for Frank and some of the original Westwood engineers on the project, who wanted to deliver the best music experience possible for the community. Overall we just can’t wait to put the Jukebox in your hands, and see all the unique playlists the community puts together. As a special treat to celebrate this post about the soundtrack, Frank has put together a compilation of several Remastered tracks for your enjoyment. You’ll be hearing a sample of the Remastered versions of Act on Instinct (without voices), Demolition (which was never included on the OST), and Fogger (which Frank described above as being recreated from scratch in high fidelity). To help provide a comparison, each track also includes a short intro of the classic low fidelity version as heard in the original game. And finally, you may notice there’s an unchecked box called “Bonus” in the Jukebox. Well, we haven’t forgotten about the voting you did earlier this year on your favorite tracks, and as such we’ll have a special surprise to reveal at a later date : ) As always thanks for your ongoing patience and support, and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on the soundtrack details, Jukebox, and the music itself. Cheers, Jim Vessella Jimtern You can read the original announcement and listen to the tracks on the C&C subreddit.
  17. Another month, another update from Jim Vessella regarding the Command & Conquer remasters, this time focusing on the campaign screens in Tiberian Dawn, and how they will now be available for selection individually like in some of the later titles. Here's the full update from the C&C subreddit:
  18. About an hour ago, EA producer Jim Vessella posted a new update on the C&C and Red Alert remasters, along with the above shown render of the Aftermath Tesla Tank. Here is what he had to say: The original post is here. Relatedly, the old official Command & Conquer Facebook page has been resurrected the other day and will now also post about remaster updates.
  19. 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.
  20. Mere minutes ago, EA producer Jim Vessella posted an update regarding the status of the original C&C source codes and what engine they will be using for C&C Remastered and Red Alert Remastered. This debunks a long-standing belief in the community that the source codes of Westwood-era titles have been lost, which is definitely good news!
  21. About half an hour ago, Jim Vessella posted an update on the progress with Command & Conquer: Remastered and Red Alert: Remastered on the C&C subreddit, which we bring you in its entirety:
  22. This video alone will tell the story. C&C 1 and Red Alert 1 are the first to get remasters, Frank Klepacki is back, and Petroglyph Games is involved. More info here.
  23. The Chronoshift is now officially open source! NOTE: Chronoshift is the new title for the RedAlert++ project. It has taken almost 10 long years of blood, sweat and tears to get us to this point, but it does not mean we are done just yet! A cleaner version of the codebase which we have been working on for the past couple of years has been pushed to the GitHub repo and we will be continuing to clean up and rewrite our currently private hosted code, and then continue all development of the project publicly on GitHub. As it stands at the moment, Chronoshift requires the original Red Alert 3.03 installation as it hooks our code into the binary and allows us to test with 1:1 accuracy. But as we develop the codebase we will be also writing the code in preparation for when we can build a fully stand-alone binary. You might be asking, "Why develop another Red Alert engine from scratch, if we already have FreeRA, FreeCNC, OpenRedAlert and OpenRA?" FreeRA, FreeCNC and OpenRedAlert are far from complete and appear to be abandoned, while OpenRA is focusing on reimagining the classic Westwood RTS titles with modern era twists such as features found later Command and Conquer titles or other RTS games. Our focus is on a classic recreation with great attention to detail on the core mechanics, more akin to OpenDUNE, hence the Chronoshift project. At this time, Chronoshift has to be built with a specific compiler due to the way it hooks into the original binary, but we are in the process of also setting up an automated build system that will allow you to download the required files without going through the build process, allowing a greater number of people to help us with testing. The Chronoshift project is hosted on GitHub under our group, (which also hosts the Thyme project: https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada/Thyme) The Assembly Armada, which you can visit here https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada You can visit Chronoshift on GitHub: https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada/Chronoshift In the meantime... Join the official Discord server for Chronoshift! Join the Discord Server now!
  24. " Maybe it is just a little bit difficult for me to translate it into English, but according to the passage, this is a true Red Alert game authorized by EA, made by Tencent. I still remember there used to be a rumor indicated that there is a new C&C mobile game in development, even Louis Castle has heard about it, maybe this is it lol
  25. This week's pick for Music Monday is another atmospheric track from Red Alert: The Aftermath - Bog. It's another one of those tracks that you can get lost in and completely forget it's part of a war-themed game. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don’t forget to share this on social media using the hashtags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday. Also be sure to follow our new C&C Radio feature on the main site for more C&C music!
