Tiberian Dawn - Single Player missions

Coming Next

Hallo Commander!

I'm finishing a kind of Phase 1 and it comprehends around 40% of the missions that it's been planned to be released, disregarding any "new old" pack arrival.

I'll be releasing pack SCB200 - list and files - soon.

 

The next step is an "Interval":

 

1 - Release of the lists of missions to its according packs.

NOTE: it will be a forecast (lists) , not the missions itself (files). This way we can have an idea of the last SCG and SCB number, a more accurate preview than I have now. What makes it vary are functionality and nature of the mission (if it is EA or EB);

 

2 - An inside step: Files will be stored in the proper folder and later few files will be exchanged. Right now it's a long storage of files in only one folder;

 

3 - I'm planning to have a second download site online: the first one is the actual post-production download site ::: Folder ::

The second download site will be a backup of the ORIGINALS UNPUBLISHED yet. I've realized that all this stuff is not mine, although some folks are calling this MY packs, not referring to it as a property, but just acknowledging it as a source - that must be clear to everyone

 

/edit

The originals area in subfolders. Also, check the cover for alternative links

4 - Please, expect a transference of files , from time to time, from the ORIGINALS subfolder to the respective FINISHED ZIP FILE, until it gets empty. So, as soon as I put the second folder online, you may or should make a backup. And also, disregard any SCG/SCB coding number. That's just provisory not valid.

Phase 2 starts when I get back to release SCGs and SCB packs that in practice will probably be SCG220 pack.

Anyway, the attitude should, whenever appropriate, reflect the state of mind and the speech.

This way all the stuff will be accessible to any TD fan.

Hi Spinvis,

 

Thanks for the words!

Note that along the thread there are plenty of different sutff.

If you might become interested in other activities rather than playing, take a look later.

And if you eventually venture yourself into the attic or basement and find some dusty floppy disks with TD files, let us know ... ehehehhehe

Special Request

Hi,

For all players that are arriving now to this thread and will download the packs eventually:

- So far some players have downloaded the packs and have started playing the missions. They tend to start by SCG100 and or SCB100.

I just want to remember that most of the code sytem is just a code system.

 

So it's advised to start playing the other packs, like SCB160 or SCG200. This way, if any unforeseen problem arises, it can be fixed and warned the rest of the players, the same way the others have done with the first packs.

 

That's it!

Ey Solo, i doubt i will find old dusty C&C disks since i moved to South Africa a few years ago and i couldn't take everything with me. I do remember having some (un)official map packs on CD for RA and C&C, but i have no idea if they are still there, nor do i remember their names.

 

I will however post bug reports whenever i find one in the mappack.

 

Cheers,

 

Spin.

Wow what an impressive project you've created here Solo...

 

Awesome work.. I haven't been here in a while due to job related stuff etc. But now seeing what has started here is just fantastic. And it all began with me sending in my mappack to you guys. It makes me proud. it seems that it even convinced others to send in their old treasures as well what's simply godlike.. :P

 

Way to go Solo - Way to go! :thumbsup:

 

Keep working on it I've just downloaded all your packs which are finished for the moment. Checking them out right now. :)

Hi 23-down,

Good to see ya'round!

 

Well, sooner or later someone would become to do it anyway, I guess, but thanks for the regards. I'm in a slow pace right now.

I'm using it to learn mapmaking and it has been fun so far, the thread now is also a repair shop.

It interacts with the Crash Research thread, because often, the game crashes due to "bad" INI programming.

 

Note that, there is a list of activities of diverse nature, from low commitment to complex task.

If you become more interested other than the gameplay, let me know.

If you have comments after play, let us know either.

Review about SCG145EA - Ossiforce Part I and Part II by Andree Popp

 

Mission1 works fine and I didn't notice anything unusual. Still I recommend to check it again.

 

Now to Mission2 which has the problems.. at the northern side of that allied base is an entire civilian city.. All their buildings however are invisble. You can click onto them but the model or graphic whatever is not visible. Anyway I ignored that.

 

In this mission you have 2 smaller armies at both sides.. The map is seperated in a left section and a right section. Your first target is it to assemble your taskforce at the right and to capture a chinook chopper. When this is done you're actually supposed to get reinforcements (probably a MCY) and then you have to wipe out all NOD forces of the map. But nothing showed up. I heared the reinforcements arrived sound though but the N key reveiled no new units present at the map. So I couldn't finish this mission I only had a handful of units left on the field while I was up against an entire fully functional base. I had to abort the mission. You should check that.

 

Also I've read somewhere that you deleted some mission triggers in some missions because there is a limit of only 40 triggers or so? Try to avoid such things if possible it could screw up the entire mission if an important trigger is getting deleted. There must be another way to get it working in C&C. Assuming of course that the specific missions were ever working in the original c&c or c&c95 itself.

 

As side of that nice work so far. Most missions so far work just fine.

Yes, I've played it and noted that. The first suspect without taking a thorough look is to check the "hut" codes like V2,V17 and this sort of thing. Maybe they are different code numbers from one theater to another. Other than that I'll have to spend a lot of time to discover.

Man, avoid so many details eheheheheheh

 

"After sometime you're" supposed to get reinforcements (probably a MCY) and then you have to wipe out all NOD forces of the map. But nothing showed up. I heared the reinforcements arrived sound though but the N key reveiled no new units present at the map. So I couldn't finish this mission I only had a handful of units left on the field while I was up against an entire fully functional base. I had to abort the mission.

You should check that.

ok

 

\EDIT

Checked: the MCV is now working and the AUTOCREATE trigger too.

I've updated the files.

 

Also I've read somewhere that you deleted some mission triggers in some missions because there is a limit of only 40 triggers or so? Try to avoid such things if possible it could screw up the entire mission if an important trigger is getting deleted. There must be another way to get it working in C&C. Assuming of course that the specific missions were ever working in the original c&c or c&c95 itself.

 

Well, the limit of 40 is a belief not a general rule, so far. In case of these missions (Betrayal and a copy-mission with the same triggers and different map - Doom's Day project) the excess of triggers crashes the game. But I'll take a time to release them until have some time to study their cases. There's a third case which I don't remember right now which one it is, but I'll find it sooner or later.

 

Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

Just a question: How many mission was in that pack? Infinite? we have more than 400 here!

:D

 

Yeah, A lot of stuff.

But you have to discount 100 for each side, since I've started both packs in SC*.100 ...

Released in this thread is 168 GDI and 141 Nod, including (mini) campaigns, sequels and levels.

Forecasting

This is the forecast lists for the next missions. The "X" in the end of the pack code means it is not a definitive list.

I might edit this post to add more items later, but this is closer to the end.

Still have around 10 campaigns out of these lists ...

I'm not sure if this is good news, but some months ago someone had pass me a CD ISO called Command Companion and I had some difficulties to open it (mount it).

I've forgotten that and today I've tried again and found 30 single player missions, not only unlisted ones, but some that were listed with problems and I had to fix or improvise something.

Like SCG179 campaign that were being remade due to lack of T&Ts. I think I've found the unbroken originals. Let me take a look and let's see what comes out.

 

Sometimes, it's good to revise things (and have luck).

:rolleyes:

Eh, in case you didn't know, winrar can open .iso files just fine... you don't need to mount them.

 

On that note, Command Companion is uploaded on my site.

Assuming that you unrar it. Using PowerISO is much more convenient.

Yes, I've used WINRAR.

But I wasn't aware about it. I've opened the "file" menu and saw "extract here" and tried. I discovered by accident. That's why it took so long.

The other time I've tried with MagicDisk and didn't work out fine.

 

Nyerguds: I think AlexB, in the older thread mentioned this collection and at that moment you have pointed to your site, right away.

Btw, the mission "Terrorist War" is in your Tactical.rar but it is a mini-campaign. The rest is inside CommandCompanion.

I got some... to be honest, rather annoying news. I finished the comparison tool, and the results are pretty bleak.

 

The good news:

-Ignoring the extra missions of the minicampaigns system (so just the SC?##EA ones), the full 00-999 range never produces other -EA duplicates. So the expanding of the numbers works perfectly as I intended originally, without producing ghost duplicates on the list (something I never really checked). This means all numbers are usable together.

-With the minicampaigns system, There are no conflicts where GDI missions turn into Nod ones or vice versa.

-All conflicts seem to be exactly the same no matter if the file is a .ini or .bin, meaning that even through errors, missions will always get their correct map.

 

Now here's the problem... Through some sadistic twist of fate, minicampaigns work 100% fine too... as long as you stay in the original range of 00-99. So while both upgrades work perfectly when used independently, it looks like we can't have both :(

 

Here's the tool. It does everything automatically; all you need to do is select a side and a number, and you'll get a list of conflicts that appear for its minicampaign suffixes.

http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/cncstu...NameChecker.rar

(note that I left out the .bin checking. This tool only shows the results for .ini names. But with .bin it seems to produce exactly the same data anyway, and I didn't see any conflicts where .bin files were seen as .ini files either)

 

Looking at this data; it seems best to arrange your minicampaign packs so they all use the <100 range.

 

Note that the 100-199 range LOOKS like it can safely be used for just 2 missions in a row, but it can't, since the conflict with any SC?1##EC mission is a SC?2##EA one; a normal menu-shown mission. This means that if that SC?2##EA one exists, the minicampaign would wrongly continue to that after the EB mission, thinking it's its own EC mission.

 

Assuming that you unrar it. Using PowerISO is much more convenient.

 

If you just want some files from an iso, it seems a lot handier to extract them with winrar than to mount the whole thing as CD. I got rar linked to isos, so I can just right-click them and choose "extract here".

Hi there,

Just to let you know: I'm here.

I'm working with some maps(mission) from now up to December.

The Optimistic Scenario: around December I'll release another of these packs.

I'll be posting "elsethread" eventually. Anything you need, post it here or contact me via PM.

Campaigns and Mix Files

,

we noticed and started the discussions of the limitations of the mix file code system.

Although we have no ideal solution yet, I am estimating the size of the problem inside this project.

 

These are the Missions that might come to be reallocated to other packs in the future, just to let you know.

I have some ideas on what to do with them, but I'll put this on HOLD for a while.

What I will certainly do is avoid adding campaigns to the forecoming packs.
