  1. This week in our Throwback Thursday feature, we look at the evolution of the first Tesla Tank in the Red Alert universe. It first appeared in the Counterstrike mission "Legacy of Tesla" with the appearance of a Mobile Radar Jammer, as a campaign-only unit. In development builds of The Aftermath, it sported a similar chassis, but with a Tesla coil and a van de Graaff generator mounted on top of it. In its final appearance in the released version of The Aftermath, where it is available in skirmish and multiplayer as well, the Tesla coil is condensed and its profile is lower. 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.
  2. Greetings ladies and gentlemen. My name is Hecthor Doomhammer and welcome to the second edition of the Hecthor Doomhammer Red Alert 1vs1 Tournament (tm) in OpenRA.

  3. Over a month ago, the team at GVMERS, who had previously covered the fate of the cancelled FPS Tiberium, created a video on the entire C&C franchise. What you are looking at above is the corrected, definitive version - certain facts about things that happened behind the scenes in Westwood Studios, EA Pacific, EA Los Angeles and Victory Games have been proofread, and each game is now presented in higher detail, in order to better describe what made Command & Conquer what it is, in both its good and bad times. The video is now 10 minutes longer in total, so be sure to check it out!
  4. Back in February, GVMERS posted a video that looked at what happened to the cancelled Tiberium FPS. Today, they have new Command & Conquer video that dives into the entire franchise. The Command & Conquer franchise helped shape the identity of RTS games during the 1990's and would influence the designs of countless similar strategy titles in later years. Even though the franchise ended with a whimper instead of a bang, it managed to create an indelible impact on the history of videogames. Join the team from GVMERS as they take a look at the rise and fall of Command & Conquer.
  5. Its a bit later than usual, but here's this week's pick for C&C Music Monday. Its back to the Red Alert soundtrack with "Journey". A slow and atmospheric track that wasn't originally part of game in the early days. Another great track from Frank Klepacki. Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  6. All replays for the league are uploaded to Jazz_KCS' file server. File server status thread. The tables are updated shortly after the end of each round. Also see: Season 3, The Rulebook and Public Registration (closed for Season 3) Live updated Fixtures and Results, Season 3 Masters' Division Minions' Division Recruit Division Alpha Recruit Division Beta Post-Season Feedback and Discussion thread for Season 2 All inquiries and official league business are conducted through openra.ragl@gmail.com, currently mananged by Jazz_KCS and SoScared. X-posted from: https://forums.cncnet.org/index.php?topic=7453.0 The RAGL has grown significantly since, with full divisions and over $800 worth of prize money for Season 2 alone. This season represents OpenRA's most dedicated players, scaled in skill level across 4 divisions with the upper two divisions looking scary good after a few seasons of promotions and relegations. All matches are easily accessible through our file server at http://64h.mine.nu:5534/mIRROR/ora_replays/ to which if you've installed OpenRA, the replay file will launch the client automatically! The RA Global League runs two event each year, one in spring and one in the fall. Beyond Season 3 (this spring) the competitive event is looking to promote itself thoroughly now that the format is stabilizing and has proven it will run smooth regardless of the number of participants and overall scope of the league setup. To get a glimpse of what some of these high competitive matches look like, look no further than the RA Global League's two-times Champion FiveAces' own YouTube shoutcast channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/CovertFlobert We're looking to raise awareness of this competition and will welcome any discussion, feedback and criticism from the CNCNZ community which above all else value the core of what represents Command & Conquer.
  7. What a great way to start the new year. The team over at CnCNet have announced that they have achieved a new record for players online. 801 players we recorded online on the second day of 2017. Lots of people still playing the classics like Red Alert and Yuri's Revenge, which I think also achieved new individual records of their own. And who says Command & Conquer is dead?
  8. Nyerguds, one of the community's most famed members and coders, has created the Westwood Font Editor, a tool which allows the editing of the official font files of various formats found in earlier Westwood games (Eye of the Beholder series, The Legend of Kyrandia series, Lands of Lore series, Dune II and 2000, Command & Conquer, Red Alert, Sole Survivor and Tiberian Sun, to name a few). This will allow easier development of fan-made localizations and modifications. You can download the latest version by following this link, the source code (written in C#, built on .NET Framework v3.5) is available as well. See this development thread for more information and full list of supported formats.
  9. It's C&C Music Monday time once again, and we are finishing the Red Alert 20th Anniversary month with another classic track from its soundtrack. This week, we feature "Smash". This one is another fast-paced techno-sounding track from Frank Klepacki. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  10. As our celebratory month of November, in which we heavily featured the 20th anniversary of Red Alert, draws to a close, this week's Throwback Thursday features the legendary handshake scene from the intro of the original Red Alert. In 1946, Albert Einstein developed a time machine in order to travel back to 1924, just as Adolf Hitler was released from prison after a failed coup, and shook his hand in order to erase him from that point of time on. World War II was averted, but another problem arose - the uncontested rise of the Soviet army and their invasion of Europe. While the premise seems rather cheesy now that we're older and have higher standards, this story brought us an entire universe of enjoyable games, which we happily remember to this day.

  11. There's been a lot of news in the Command & Conquer community to cover, so here's a quick overview of what's going on: CnCNet has reached a new milestone, with over 720 players connected at the same time Techraptor has posted an article giving a nice retrospective view on the Red Alert games The Tiberian Dawn Redux mod for Zero Hour has received patch 1.43, with eight new missions and some edited ones, as well as balancing and bugfixes Twisted Insurrection received two hotfix patches following its latest major release, 0.61 and 0.62 W3D Hub published a new update on Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, showing off the Ore Purifier, the Tank Destroyer and Tanya's Sig Sauer pistol. Check out more news in our C&C Community News forum. If you have any community news of your own you want to share, feel free to send us a news tip.
  12. For C&C Music Monday this week, we finally feature one of the most popular video game songs ever, it's "Hell March". An iconic song, when you hear this you instantly know it's Red Alert. A classic masterpiece by the one and only Frank Klepacki. And we think its only fitting that "Hell March" be featured for the 20th anniversary of Red Alert. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  13. In this week's edition of Throwback Thursday, we look back at the strongest Allied naval unit... actually, the strongest naval unit in terms of firepower from the original Red Alert - the Cruiser. The cannons of this potent ship could decimate any unit or building with little effort, making it a viable artillery choice. The Soviets did not even have an equivalent for this unit until the Aftermath expansion pack, where they got the Missile Sub. However, the Cruiser was very slow and imprecise, and required a lot of micromanagement to properly aim at its target. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image.

  14. While the mistaken celebration of the 20th anniversary of the first Red Alert three weeks prematurely can be much attributed to the erroneous data on Wikipedia (which has been fixed with a source link), it still didn't stop people celebrating the game. A flashback article has appeared on the Rolling Stone website of all places, which investigates what was it in Red Alert that affected the way RTS games were made from then on. Here's an excerpt: Click here to read the full article.
  15. For Throwback Thursday this week, we feature the two generals from Red Alert: Retaliation for the original PlayStation - Ben Carville, played by Barry Corbin, and Topolov, played by Alan Charof. Both generals were the only characters encountered in Retaliation FMVs. They appeared in cutscenes for select missions and were not present in their DOS/Windows counterparts in Counterstrike and Aftermath. Of the two, only Barry Corbin was re-cast to reprise his role in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image.

  16. After skipping last week, C&C Music Monday returns this week. And we are continuing by featuring tracks from the soundtrack to Red Alert. Today’s pick is "Twin Cannon", it almost sounds like two songs in one, probably because it is. The end of this one sounds nothing like its techno beginnings. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  17. In this week's edition of Throwback Thursday, we look back at a very rare feature in video games, but a much favoured one among C&C fans. In C&C games up to and including Yuri's Revenge, as well as in Dune 2000, Westwood would put track lists in the sound control menus. Basically, we got C&C's own little media players, where you could listen to Frank Klepacki's then-to-be classics in any order and any time you wanted! This is also how many of us memorized all those track names before having YouTube and personal composers' websites to check them.

  18. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of C&C Red Alert, I dug this model out of my archives from many years ago from when I was new to 3D modeling. It is simply a converted and edited model from C&C Renegade for use in C&C Generals. Texture/Skin was also a quick photoshop edit to transform it into a Soviet version of the iconic tank. This was never released IIRC and was originally never intended to be as it was just a model to help me learn how to rig and retexture models for C&C Generals. The Gmax and other source files will also be included. DISCLAIMER: As mentioned above this model was originally designed/edited for C&C Generals but with a little bit of work it can be redone to work with C&C3 or RA3. Credits go to Westwood for the original Models/Textures Rigging and other edits to make it functional with modern C&C games go to sgtmyers88 File attachment was too large so I made a download link HERE
  19. As we approach the month of November this means that Red Alert is officially 20 years old. Red Alert was the prequel, the what if game, set before the events of the original Command & Conquer it tells the story of the conflict between the Allies and Soviets with its twisted science and alternate take on world history. And as the story ends we learn about the early origins of the eventual rise of the Brotherhood of Nod from the fallen Soviet Empire. So Red Alert and Command & Conquer are very much connected in more ways than you think. Of course all of this was later undone with creation of Red Alert 2 that essentially changes the time line and from that point neither connected. Here at CNCNZ.com we are celebrating the Red Alert 20th Anniversary by giving our main site and forums a bit of a Red Alert theme. These Red Alert themed images, created by Plokite_Wolf, will remain online through out November. If you don't see the new images you may need reload/refresh your web browsers cache. You can do this by hitting CTRL + F5 to fetch the updated images.
  20. C&C Music Monday this week continues this week with the theme of tracks from the now 20 years old Red Alert. Since it's the 20th anniversary for Red Alert let's remember the classic track, "Roll Out". A personal favourite of mine. Especially the part that begins at the 1.31 minute mark. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  21. Its a special double instalment of C&C Music Monday this week. As the 20th anniversary for Red Alert is fast approaching its only fitting to feature more tracks from it's soundtrack. And since I couldn't decide between either of these, both "Militant Force" and "Vector" are the selections for this week. "Militant Force" is a particular favourite of mine with it's hard thumping beat. While "Vector" slows things down a bit with a funky sound. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  22. A bit later than usual, it's C&C Music Monday time once again. By request we have gone back to the Red Alert soundtrack for this one. And it's "Crush". An all time Command & Conquer classic in any sense of the word. It's an up beat, fast pace techo rock track from Frank Klepacki. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  23. It is time once again for Music Monday. This week, we are slowing things down with "Groundwire" from the Red Alert: The Aftermath soundtrack. This one begins with a hauntingly atmospheric introduction that soon transitions to a more up beat finale. Another signature track from Frank Klepacki. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  24. PC Gamer have included the classic Red Alert in their list of The Top 100 PC games that you can play today.
