  1. CNCNZ.com Turns 20!

    On 27 October 1997, a small fansite called TiberianSun.Net.NZ was created by @Sonic, in anticipation for the then-upcoming Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. Now, 20 years later, we are a site that aims to cover the entire Command & Conquer series and its surrounding community. Twenty years is no small feat for any website, especially one run by fans. Many other C&C fansites went down due to their owners running out of time or, worse yet, enthusiasm, and although we were in danger ourselves not too long ago, we prevailed. We are now one of the few dedicated Command & Conquer fansites running, and we have no intention of stopping. We're also the second-longest running C&C fansite in total, with only the French CnCSaga.com being older than us by about one year. What does the future hold? Who knows. We already have some things prepared to upgrade the site's content, not least of which being the currently work-in-progress Downloads section that many of you may have seen already. We intend to form the site to a source on the C&C series like it's never been before, so keep an eye out for updates. What does the present hold, though? Well, to celebrate this huge milestone, we'll be hosting a game night tonight (October 27th) at 19:00 UTC, and the game of choice will be Tiberian Sun via CnCNet (Firestorm games optional), as it was the game that led to this site's creation. The games will be casual and fun in nature, so anyone interested can join and play. Make sure you set it up properly beforehand, so check out our guide for installing and patching. Hop by on our Discord server for coordination and chit-chat. Also, if you're just joining us after some time of absence, we've launched C&C Radio earlier this month, and interviewed Frank Klepacki on his past and current work, so check that content out as well!
  2. Twenty years is quite a long time, especially for a video game fansite. It’s a good point to look back at what’s been accomplished and what’s been experienced in that time. With that in mind, we approached one of the key people who made our experiences with most of the Command & Conquer franchise enjoyable and memorable. Our beloved composer Frank Klepacki took some time from his busy schedule for an interview in which we asked him about his work at Westwood Studios and his current projects. Click here to read the interview.
  3. With the 20th anniversary of our site being mere hours away, we've decided to dedicate this week's Throwback Thursday feature to the original iteration of our site, which was initially called TiberianSun.Net.NZ, created on 27 October 1997 by @Sonic in anticipation for Westwood's intensely hyped Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. From the image shown, taken on the second anniversary in 1999, we can see how far we've come since, from expanding to the entire C&C franchise, through generating exclusive content, to becoming one of the most resilient fansites around. 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.
  4. In this special month of October which marks CNCNZ.com's 20th anniversary, we will be hosting Game Nights every Friday. From the classic C&C titles to popular mods, we will be playing it all on our Discord server! If there is enough interest we can make it a contest to determine the #1 player of each Game Night, but otherwise these Game Nights will be casual gaming sessions as we chill together and enjoy games with friends. For this first Game Night of the month, there is no set time and no particular game we are focusing on. This is but an open invitation to come by our Discord server, connect within our community, and get some games going. The invite link can be found here, and we hope to see some faces old and new! I myself may be in late this evening, though if you catch me I will be down to play! Let's make these Friday nights our nights for C&C games!
  5. This October 27th is the 20-year anniversary for CNCNZ.com! As we progress through the month of October, we will be hosting a series of features and events. On October 1st, we'll be releasing C&C Radio, our online streaming service where you can listen to music from the C&C series and commentary from our staff. On Fridays, we'll be hosting game nights, from the classics to popular mods and using CnCNet and C&C:Online where applicable. Other features will be released or updated, so check out CNCNZ this month to see what we have in store!
  6. In another new article, I've decided to publicly vent about quite a few misinformed and outright stupid comments I've encountered in the C&C community over the past few years on almost all sites and chat rooms I've been to. Sadly, most of these things are frequently repeated over and over. The statements I've made there are sincere mirrors of what I think and feel, so easily offended people beware. You can read the full article here.
  7. The link to our Discord server has unjustly only been in the announcement for our failed first Game Night (we'll organize a new one, don't fret!). So, to all those who are not aware, we have our own Discord server here: https://discord.gg/4PN3HEa There we can talk about anything related and unrelated to the C&C series, as well as organize and coordinate during game nights. There are also channels for modding and our usual news feed. We also have a few voice chat channels. Hop in and join us!
  8. While we aim to cover all things Command & Conquer, we often forget that they had two "cousin" series: Dune and The Battle for Middle-earth. In this new CNCNZ.com article, I look at each of the games in both series individually, first giving the basic information on them and core gameplay points, after which I give my subjective view on them. I've also shared links to their official and fan-made patches, as well as multiplayer servers where you can play them. Click here to see the article.
  9. Coming Soon

    I don't think this news needs any explanation.
  10. For quite a while, I've wanted to make a multiplayer event for forum members and followers of CNCNZ.com where we'd just chill and play some fun matches together without any competitive pressure unless agreed upon otherwise. And so, our first Game Night will take place on Saturday, 15 July, at 19:00 GMT, in Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge via CnCNet. Further information is available here. In other news, we have started our very own Discord server, which channels for both our regular news feed and discussions, and a channel intended for game nights, along with voice channels.
  11. I wanted to write something to have my final goodbye and officially sign off as the webmaster, founder and lead administrator of CNCNZ.com. So I decided to write an article addressing stuff such as the closure announcement, change of ownership and my final thoughts. It is short, to the point and hopefully it answers everyone's questions. You can read the entire article right here. And with that I'm done. As I wrote just under a month ago. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as webmaster of this site but now its time to step aside. Long live Command & Conquer! Long live CNCNZ.com!
  12. The CNCNZ.com Service Depot, our section of Technical Support & Help Guides, has been expanded! With the tendency of newer operating systems to break older games and the ever-rising need for manual workarounds, we now offer guides to install every Command & Conquer game for the PC, from the venerable Command & Conquer for the DOS to C&C 4: Tiberian Twilight, across different releases where applicable (retail, The First Decade, Steam, Origin...), as well as full guides for The First Decade and The Ultimate Collection. But that's not all: we've also included guides on how to run mods for Tiberium Wars, Kane's Wrath and Red Alert 3 for those trying them out for the first time (or just need a refresher), as well as how to install DirectX 9.0c and bypass the blocking of the SafeDisc driver. If you think the guides are insufficiently explained, or if you've found a more efficient way of getting the games to run, send a message to Plokite_Wolf or Zee Hypnotist. It's time to play the game(s), commanders, and now you have the means of doing so!
  13. Donate to CNCNZ.com

    Thankfully, CNCNZ.com is alive and well, and we can keep the site running, despite Sonic's departure. However, when the site was about to go offline a few days ago, many of our devoted followers offered their help. As such, I'd like to mention that one way you can help is by donating to help cover our server costs. Thankfully, the costs are fairly low, at about $210 per year. Thankfully, these costs aren't too high, but I do have to pay them out of pocket, and if you want to help, that would be great. If you'd like to donate, visit our donate page. Oh, and don't worry, this will be the only time I ask for money. I'm mostly doing this because some of you offered. Otherwise, you can support the site by joining us in our forums and helping to keep our community active. Thanks to everyone for their kind support, no matter how little. Even stopping by for a post or two means a lot to us.
  14. Sonic, the founder and lead webmaster of this site, has chosen to step down. Rather than let the site disappear into the abyss, he has generously allowed me to maintain the website. What does this mean? I, Zee Hypnotist, have returned to CNCNZ.com. Sort of. I am here mostly in spirit and to ensure that CNCNZ stays alive in one way or another. Plokite_Wolf and Nmenth will remain as the admins who actually keep the site running, while I support them in any way I can. Rest assured, you do not need to worry about archiving everything just yet, we will ensure that CNCNZ remains online, though there may be a temporary period of disruption while we transfer everything to (yet another) server host. And to Sonic, we, the community, thank you for your 19 years of keeping this site alive. Should you ever wish to return, your legacy will always remain. Long live CNCNZ!
  15. After a lot of thought I've decided the time has come for CNCNZ.com to be retired. The Command & Conquer franchise appears to be dead and buried. EA are simply sitting on it, with no news of any plans for the future of the franchise. The bleak C&C future is not the only factor in my decision to close down the site. In past couple months many changes have taken place in my real life. These changes mean I can no longer devote time to keeping the site going. I've lost the passion and motivation to continue. Other factors are the financial costs. We have to pay for hosting. This money comes from my own personal bank account. Living expenses have increased for me in last month or so and that means something has to go. I have achieved many great things in my 19 years as the webmaster and founder of CNCNZ.com. When I started it all way back in 1997, I never imagined it lasting this long. I take pride that we managed to get to this point. I have made many friends and contacts over the years. Been rewarded with lots free merchandise, received trips to EA in Los Angeles. We have sent staff members to Westwood Studios in Las Vegas, others have been to Germany for C&C related events. Where ever C&C has been, CNCNZ.com has been there along side it. I will be closing the hosting account in the next couple of days. I don't know how the long the site will remain online for. So if there is anything you want to save now is the time. Its been a great run, I'm sad that it is ending. CNCNZ.com is and always will be a part of me. I want to personally thank all the current and past staff members who have contributed over the many years we have been online. As the saying goes. "All good things... must come to end". It has been an honor and privilege to serve as webmaster of the this site but now its time to retire. Goodbye to you all. Goodbye to CNCNZ.com. CNCNZ.com October 1997 - ????
  16. CNCNZ.com 20th Anniversary

    CNCNZ.com reaches its 20th year online covering C&C games and the community. More details will be announced as the day gets closer.
  17. Our Throwback Thursday feature hits yet another milestone today - the 100th entry! This week, we remember the community summits from 2006 to 2013, when CNCNZ.com staff, among many other community leaders at the time, was invited to check out the then-upcoming C&C games, share their opinions and ideas directly with the developers, and ultimately have a good time with developers and other community members. There are still many pictures, videos and reports from these events on our Other Specials page, as well as the inactive but online Planet C&C. 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.
  18. As originally posted on Friday, we said there would be some downtime to get ready for some planned software upgrades on the main site and forums that are currently in the early planning stages. This maintenance has been completed. Work begins later this week on testing things for our new forums.
  19. After some discussion with our hosts today and in preparation for some planned software upgrades on the main site and forums there will be some downtime this Monday the 13th of February from 4PM New Zealand time. The downtime will take place in these time zones. New Zealand / Monday, 13 February 2017 at 4PM.NZDT UTC+13 hours USA - California / Sunday, 12 February 2017 at 7PM PST UTC-8 hours USA - New York / Sunday, 12 February 2017 at 10PM. EST UTC-5 hours England / Monday 13 February 2017 at 3AM. GMT UTC Germany / Monday, 13 February 2017 at 4AM. CET UTC+1 hour During this down time, the main site and forums will be migrated to a newer server. Not exactly sure how long the outage will be though. Another update will be made when the maintenance has been completed. As stated above, this all part of the planned and much needed forum upgrades. Sometime in the next month you can expect brand new forums right here at CNCNZ.com.
  20. Here in New Zealand its the 1st of January, its 2017, its time for a fresh start. That's how we see things here at CNCNZ.com. We can look back on 2016 as very disappointing year in C&C Community. Another year in which EA stay silent about the franchise's future. Sure we had some rumours, but they were far fetched at best. We have tried to keep things happening around here but it has been difficult in recent months. As life changes so does our site. We like to keep our regular features like Throwback Thursday and Music Monday rolling out each week but we have skipped the odd one here and there. There are no plans to retire these features though, we are strategizing behind the scenes to make sure these get done in a timely fashion. We are also discussing ideas for new features and new content. Like I always do each New Year, a quick list of credits to thank those who have helped with CNCNZ.com in the past year. Big thanks to Plokite_Wolf, who rejoined our team during the year. He took over Throwback Thursday and kept the news updates flowing. The rest of the CNCNZ.com Staff, our supporters, loyal visitors and forum members, as well as our friends from around the community who have contributed content and information for the site and forums throughout the year. Another year of excellent support from our hosts, MyHost New Zealand. So it's a Happy New Year from CNCNZ.com! Welcome to 2017!
  21. It is hard to believe, but Christmas has come around once again. And as we always do, we make a quick Christmas Eve post to sign off for the well deserved break. On behalf of the team here at CNCNZ.com we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas! Special thanks to all of our community friends, the loyal visitors who still come here looking for C&C news. We can't forget about out forum members for their continued support either. Have a great Christmas Day, and we'll see you on the other side. Please feel free to leave your own Christmas greetings and wishes in this news thread.
  22. Another year has gone by so that means we have reached 19 years online covering Command & Conquer games and the community. Its clear things aren't as fast pace as the old days but people still do visit the site, they follow us on the likes Twitter and Facebook and our forums see peeks of activity as well. But through all of this, EA remains silent on the official side of things. No news from them about the future of the Command & Conquer franchise. There is nothing big planned for our 19th anniversary other than recognising the achievement, maybe some bigger plans will be made when we reach the 20th anniversary this time in 2017. CNCNZ.com, October 1997 to October 2016.... 19 years and counting!
