It's been, 13 fucking years, holy shit, and you reddit niggas still didn't came up with a joke better than "C&C 4 does not exist"? And then you accept shit like Rivals and half baked remaster with your arms wide open. Go figure why remastered collection volume 2 didn't came out and why such thing as Legions exists.

Yahweh bless Electronic Arts for successfully scamming C&C goymers for two decades.

20 dollars for a plastic-looking textures, broken difficulty settings, steam achievements that still won't register most of the time, tasty cadmium Mammoth Tank in a 200 dollars anniversary edition that also included pins and other small merchandise that looks worse than those same things but decades ago in special editions of the games when they first came out, and also obelisk/tesla coil dildos with "made in china" written on them, artbook that had none of the original concept art or new concept art made specifically for remaster but had screenshots from mods for Red Alert 3, with half of the job such as providing of the source code and cutscene upscaling being made by community members for free.

Feels like majority just bought remaster in hopes that EA will make more C&C in future, while never actually playing it, i actually wonder why so little people who bought the remaster on steam have the achievements, is it because almost no one actually played the game, even first two levels, since they give achievements for that, or the game just didn't registered them.

How? I don't have the remaster. I've only heard of people complaining how they changed the airstrike AI so you can't bait it as easily

The guy from the community that EA asked to test new difficulty levels, i.e. hard and easy, just cheesed all missions by knowing all the bugs and exploits, and then reported to EA that the game is fine and they shipped it without checking it, in other words, hard was absolutely busted and easy was piss poor easy

LEGION was second iteration of dev's feeble attempt at responding to plyers backlash after C&C 3 looked nothing like Tiberian Sun, and all the buildup from the Nod ending of Firestorm was wasted. C.A.B.A.L. was written off, completely destroyed and what was left became part of Kane's mind in C&C 3. LEGION is just a machine, not a cybernetic organism like C.A.B.A.L., LEGION is what if EVA was a playable character at best, an insert for the player, which it is, and the supposed advanced army of cyborgs that he leads, and that C.A.B.A.L. didn't knew about for some reason, is so fucking advanced that it doesn't have anti-air cyborgs and uses regular murder-hobos instead, and they die on Tiberium even though they are supposed to be immune to it and also get healed on it just like mutants.

The new graphics are okay, but thankfully you can just toggle on the old graphics. Steam achievements are gay and I never touched the difficulty slider since the original didn't have one.

I should just go back to the old titles I guess, I might do a C&C run up to kane's wrath.
Is there a sort of canon in what campaigns are relevant to the game after, or are you supposed to just play them all?
>>
>>1589165
Definitely try Generals again. I didn't like it very much when it came out but gave it a try years later and I consider it probably one of the best games in the series along with Zero Hour. I feel like Zero Hour gives a lot more character to the factions (you get live action cutscenes for instance), they felt a little bit bland in the main game. The game needs some setting up though, gamedata.ini mod to raise up the camera and AA and AF forced to look good.
>>
>>1589179
I will look into it. I also sometimes get the urge to go back and finish the Act of War campaign, but often enough when I go back to play old games I soon remember why I stopped playing them at the time.

Generals have really great gameplay but everything else be it graphics, music or atmosphere mostly sucks.

Are you fucking mad? The music is better than General's gameplay! Sure there is nothing that can compare to Grinder, Act on Instinct, Hell March, or really anything from RA2 or older, but the sound track is still fucking solid.

Tib Sun and RA2 are great. Tib Dawn and Red Alert 1 are kind of clumsy since it really is just tank-spam the game with bad path finding.
Generals was pretty fucking kino when I played it originally. It lacks the over the top atmosphere of Tib Sun and RA 2, but seeing the 3d units and effects blew my fucking mind.

Never played any of the ones after that though.

Honestly, tried to go back and play C&C Remastered and it's pretty fucking clunky.

C&C was no longer a golden goose when it was killed, the RTS genre in general is extremely niche because it decided to appeal exclusively to hyper-competitive sperglords and the average person is no longer interested
>>

TibDawn and Red Alert 1 are first-gen RTS games. If you plan on playing them, just enjoy them for their simplicity. I like to refer to the first two C&C games as amazing soundtracks with some cool RTS games attached.

The canon of the franchise and it subseries is somewhat light. Without getting too much into spoilers, there was a time when the tiberian and the red alert series were supposed to be part of one continuum, which was dropped around the time the 2nd generation C&C games (i.e. TibSun and RA2) came out.

Within their own respective series, it is a story of varying consistency. The Tiberium series is somewhat more stringent in its narrative than red alert, but for both series you don't really need much context from earlier titles. You get the most of possible callback when you play the very first game, Tiberian Dawn, as it gets the most callbacks from both Red alert 1 and Tiberian Sun. Red alert 2 of course picks up after the first and you get told the interlude between the two games in the installation program, but for the most part you're fine with knowing the general outcome of the preceding game. Gameplay-wise however, the games do their fair share of making you feel at home if you know the predecessor, i.e. general factions, signature technologies, units and playstyles.
You can also observe this pattern with the Dune Games.

Regarding Generals, I don't quite know nough about it so as what to say in regards to its canon or whether to recommend it to anyone. They were released in a time when 3D was still somewhat awkward while 2D has been mastered for quite some time, so I'd think the second generation C&C games are nice to look at and the first generation are nowadays fine. You will of course find the older games lacking in gameplay depth and quality of life features. This is why i hope that they give a proper remastering to Tiberian Sun and RA2.

If you wonder about play order, there are several possible ways. In any case, you should start of at the beginning. Get the remastered collection and play Tiberian Dawn and Red alert 1. After that, proceed either in release order or pick the series which fancies you more and play these through in release order
>>
>>1593275
cont'd

You can somewhat ignore the Add-Ons for the first two games, but beyond that, they become important additions the respective game's story. You can play them up until their third instalment or jump off earlier if you deem them too wacky. Only play the fourth Tiberium game if you're really determined to see the franchise through to the end. Otherwise, it's not worth it and might even sour the good taste you had from the previous games, retroactively.

It was never dropped. They were making plans to tie them back together through Ren2 and C&C3. Among other things, they would have made Yuri a time-traveling Nod acolyte.
Thankfully Westwood died before it could embarrass itself with this crap.

His patch is barely acceptable in my opinion. The game still crashes alot with it. Even at lower resolution.
>>
>>1594454
C&C3 is probably my favourite game in the franchise other than Renegade which doesn't count. It's like they took the best parts of Generals and put them into a more typical C&C style game. If the campaign wasn't so fucked by the balance patches the gameplay would be flawless. The only letdown for me is the entirely forgettable soundtrack.
I didn't like Kane's Wrath nearly as much as the base game even though it adds Zero Hourlike factions and indirectly nerfs Scrin. The balance just feels weird and wrong.
>>
>>1595735
The balance is user-selectable with a command line argument (-modconfig), but I believe this will only work with the DVD version. There should be skudef files in the game folder that you give to it to launch the game with an older patch. There's a fanpatch that enables it for online store versions too but I haven't used it.

That's even crazier. I feel robbed of the possibility of fighting the Scrin Overlord and his actual military.
But in all honesty Scrin open up so much potential for GDI and Nod in terms of tech advancement.
Also imagine the Forgotten getting some of it too via various means.
All the factions would've become even more futuristic/cyberpunk-ish than they were in TibSun. Nod would also have a more techno-organic look probably too.

Honestly even military contractors who made it doesn't know what Bradley is actually supposed to be with how much it was changed from the original idea of light troop transport made for reconnaissance.

But the one in the game is supposed to be retrofitted with light tank gun instead of autocannon, with troop transportation being sacrificed for anti-tank capabilities

As I see it, ea did not understand what the potential of tiberian sun had.
They decided to go the route of a simple red alert variant, one that had less zany elements.

The sad thing is that they almost had it, it was even present in the game, only off to the side, where it wasn’t in the way.

But first, I have to go on a tangent:
Tiberian Sun, the first of the series that I played, told the story of a doomed world, tiberium was spreading everywhere, it was changing the climate, xenoforming eart, and we(humans) could do nothing to stop it, and in our desperation we turned towards one of two factions:
The optimistic GDI, who believe we can persevere, undo the damage, fix things.
Or the Brotherhood of Nod, who seem to think the only way forward is to embrace the change, and change with it.
All while the world is experiencing a slow apocalypse, one that will take generations to complete.

Cnc3 did include this aspec, but only thematicly, tiberium is more prevalent than ever, you get to see landscape torn up and warped by tiberium, but.
In Tiberian Sun, tiberium is not only a resource, but also an obstacle.
Tiberium is present in large patches, and is constantly spreading, and sending infantry through this is just a bad idea, veins also spread, ripping apart anything large, corrosive gas hangs in the air.
For Tiberian Sun, that was about it, but the potential was there, the potential to have a match not only against an opponent, but against the map itself, you were fighting not only to defeat your opponent, but to survive long enough to do so.

And that, is what EA forgot, in 3, the themes are there, but the game is not tiberian anymore, it’s a more basic red alert with a reskin.

theres a way to put guardmode on 1 guy and have the rest act like it's a kind of attack move? if so, how do i do it?

>>
>>1632192
>ctrl-alt-click method to guard an area
I don't think this works in the first C&C like it does it the later ones where your units will attack en-route. I mean that, for example, if you have one slow unit like a mammoth tank and some humvees, you can ctrl-alt-click the humvees on the mammoth and just drive the mammot around and the humvees will try to protect it. It's pretty janky but the only way to get them attack like that.

Why would Nod spend all that equipment and training on its meat shield infantry. It makes much more sense to keep that for the Black Hand and other elite infantry. Nods basic infantry should be guerilla radicals that are used mainly as bodies to throw at the enemy while its elite units strike vulnerable points.
>>
>>1637428
nta but the reason they could afford to give their basic infantrymen proper equipment is simply because they could afford it, controlling the majority of tiberium holdings during the first war and being one of the only major world powers besides GDI by the second war despite internal division in the beginning.

I still consider Red Alert canon to C&C1, probably with a Soviet victory since Kane appears in the Soviet campaign and the Brotherhood of Nod is all but named. Plus, the Soviets conquering all of Europe and then collapsing in the 1990's just before Tiberium shows up is a good backstory to C&C1 that explains GDI's relative struggle against Nod. Red Alert 2 is a lot of fun but I'm not sure if I even consider it a real sequel to RA1 because at least vanilla RA1 takes itself very seriously where-as RA2 is mostly light hearted and vaguely parody.

This would have been terrible. RA2 onward belongs in its own universe because of TONE. RA2 and especially RA3 is just too silly to be part of RA1 or the Tiberium series. Of-course they have some light hearted moments or aesthetics in places too, but over all RA1 and the Tiberium games take themselves seriously. RA1 should be part of Tiberium canon but nothing after that.

I always regretted how Renegade ditched the original C&C1 aesthetics. Visually Renegade looks like it should take place between C&C1 and Tiberian Sun. I always liked how C&C1 had that modern aesthetic with a few science fiction elements, a couple of "near future" vehicles and technology, but otherwise grounded in the modern day of 1995 or so.
>>
>>1629735
I hated how C&C3 redesigned Tiberium to just be crystals glowing over the landscape, ditching what was established in C&C1 that Tiberium is a PLANT with bulbs and roots that produces crystals as a side effect of the roots leeching nutrients and minerals out of the soil. As you said, Tiberium and the whole ecosystem around it, and the way it affected the setting, was very interesting and unique. Tiberium mutations could be genuine threats to your army and determine how and where you do battle.

I thought the whole point of Nod having militia was obvious.
>The world was in apocalypse state.

Why would not focus resources on tech that mattera. Nod control most yellow zone, which has most the population. So it was easier to just make high numbers of milita zealots.

Why do you think Nod focused more on steath tech, because GDI has the brutal force them.

Nod realized going toe to toe with GDI is dumb.
>>
>>1642718
No, it takes place during C&C1. Some of the missions are even missions from C&C1 and Havok is the one who infiltrates Nod Temple Prime just before the final GDI mission.
>>
>>1642725
That's always been how Nod's forces work because they've always been weaker than GDI.
>>
>>1642806
True, but in TD Nod was superpower that could buttheads with GDI. The lore even states at one point Nod soldiers were better equipped than GDI.

All the setbacks probably screwed Nod bad.
>>
>>1642869
>True, but in TD Nod was superpower that could buttheads with GDI.
No, they were a rising power. A super power? Maybe, but not one that could go toe to toe with GDI. Notice how in TD Nod relies the most on media manipulation and sabotage and other covert operations. Note as well that GDI dominates the skies, seas, and has the stronger units on the land too.

Personally, given that Nod has a few multiplayer/CovertOps exclusive units, I like to reason that the war in TD kicked off a few years earlier than Kane wanted, hence why Nod doesn't have any real airforce, can't deploy Chem Warriors or MLRS's in large quantities, nor those laser fences we see in the ending cutscene.

Things are quite a bit more balanced in TS because at that point Nod has widely deployable stealth tech and subterranean capabilities, which counters GDI's air, space (and maybe sea?) capabilities. That war also ends in a much more closer to equal status, with Nod not remotely in any way destroyed by GDI and with Nod having successfully wiped out their biggest base (Hammerfest).

TD ends in total GDI victory with the Brotherhood all but gone; broken up and scattered into different factions all their territory functionally claimed by GDI. Not so with TS. Alas, I went on a tangent there.

My point is, Nod is at its weakest in TD.
>>
>>1642869
>The lore even states at one point Nod soldiers were better equipped than GDI.
I don't recall where this was ever stated. I do remember reading, I think in Renegade, that the average Nod soldier was little better equipped than a third world constrict, as in fact most of them are. However that actual Brotherhood officers and professional soldiers, which were fewer in number, were just as well equipped and trained as any GDI soldier/officer.

I think that might've been their original intentions, judging by some early concepts. I haven't read up on Renegade's development, so I'm not sure when the decision was made to make Nod resemble Cobra with the red jumpsuits. Giving them gas masks makes some sense since t-poisoning was going around during the first war and the Brotherhood was more knowledgeable about its effects.

Indeed it was the original idea with Renegade. The designs being faithful to TD I mean. I don't recall when or why it was changed. While I do think Renegade's designs and aesthetics are cool, as I said it feels like something that would take place right in between the 30 year gap between TD and TS. The gasmaks and and such are fine and just makes sense from a design standpoint since gasmask enemies don't need faces and so fit generic enemies well. Plus, gasmasks with the gray fatigues better lines up with TS's black armor with masks (with a few red highlights).

Like I said, I just prefer the grounded look of TD or else the full on Sci-Fi of TS to the middle ground that Renegade kind of falls into.

They were weaker by a lot in terms of raw force. Just look at their core nations as opposed to GDI which has the whole of US, most of South America, all of Europe, Russia, Australia, ect. Nod has a bunch of third world countries and China (which at that time is not so powerful)

I have no idea but society broke down pretty well in the 21st century so that would have changed the geopolitical landscape a lot. During TS you can see places in the US that Nod holds; both GDI and Nod hold bits of territory all over with no-mans land in between. Nations barely exist at that point as fast as I'm aware.

How do War Factories work in Red Alert?
Allied and Soviet War Factories look identically yet they are different?
I remember in one allied mission I stole a Soviet Construction Yard and a Soviet War Factory which allowed me to build soviet buildings and soviet units. So far so good but then later I build a second war factory (using that stolen soviet construction yard) and it suddenly unlocked the allied vehicles but they could only come out of the new factory and the soviet units only from the old factory. Why the fuck does it work like this?
Tiberium Dawn was so much better and easier to understand.

Not sure about Red Alert, but for the original C&C and beyond if I were inclined to explain game conveniences I would say that GDI & later Nod war factories use 3D printing to assemble armaments in the field. Would also explain how some buildings "unfold". I mean we do see a Construction Yard do it in a cinamatic...
>>
>>1646199
I just assume Red Alert and 2's factories were just run by technicians and military personnel, hence why some basic infantry would pop out of destroyed structures or that they're just automated by early factory robots.

That game is only good mechanically. Which is no surprise as it is an iteration of Sage engine. Or however it's spelled.
Otherwise kids who grew up playing it have a massive nostalgia and that's that. VO is not bad too I guess. But it is fuck ugly, the designers had to turn to muh Middle East and muh Red (paper) Tiger because the audience wouldn't have bought into RA3 at the time. Even with man-cannons shooting bears out. It felt like a cash grab through and through.

I now fear the Star Wars strategy game Jimtern is currently working on will also get the axe and it will be over for RTS games at EA.
>>
>>1593202
honestly the only things wrong with Rivals were the microtransactions and the game's reliance on them (and everything that enables it like lootcrates and unit leveling). The trailer and the general artstyle could also use a few more months in the oven but if there was no microtransactions you could've overlooked them, because:
The core of the game was good, could use slightly bigger maps and a bit of a balance change, but it is fun to just tap a squad of Nod bikes or GDI jumpjet grenadiers, tap to where the enemy harvester ought to be, and watch the fireworks. It's fun to have a small skirmish with a few tanks, some rocket squads, and maybe a helicopter. It's fun to play king of the hill, and it's fun to ignore it to just burn down the enemy base directly with a flame tank and some flamethrower infantry support. It's not a big grand game of big war like the computer C&C, but it's a mobile spinoff with simple controls and simpler eco, it doesn't want to be a big war and it almost succeeded in that.

But as I said at the beginning, microtransactions and leveling killed the game before it could even get made. It happens to everything EA touches, now more than it ever did. I don't need to elaborate on this.
>>
>>1660002
Rivals had the worst timing possible for its announcement
>>
>>1661467
EA literally copied everything Blizzard did down to a T, announced mobile game instead of a proper product, received backlash, announced remaster to get back some brownie points back and use beforementioned backlash as an opportunity to make some quick cash, outsourced remaster to the same malaysian sweatshop that Blizzard did.

Yet where Blizzard failed, EA succeeded, but not because Remastered Collection of C&C was a better than WC3 Reforged, which it was to a certain extent but only because of how much simpler and small first C&C games are in comparison to WC3. It is more of how much C&C community is cucked to one of the worst gaming companies in the whole world, where Blizzard fans are more organized and lived with their fuckery for years, C&C just accepted all the shit that EA did to the franchise. This anon here >>1587949 and some other posts in this thread have already explained problems with Remaster but i'd like to add that the only asset in Remaster that doesn't look plastic or soapy is TD Construction Yard, but only because they used it as part of the promo-camapign, "Hey look goy... C&C fans! We are combining art-styles of the in-game assets with their cutscene counterparts to provide updated classical yet new experience". Also Jimtern himself stated at some point that Remaster came out only because his contact at EA asked if he has any ideas on how EA can exploit Rivals backlash.

All the Sarajevo missions got raped by the "balance" patches.
>>
>>1663812
Even with the 'balance' patches forced on the campaign missions, that particular mission can still be cheesed fairly early into it. Pump out some predator tanks and engineers and rush the top right base. It has anti-infantry defenses so your tanks should be able to walk right in. Fund the attack by selling the defenses intended to guard against attacks from that base. With the base destroyed/captured you only have to worry about infantry and air attacks from their respective directions.
>>
>>1663809
what exactly is not enjoyable about it? I'd say it's reasonably hard, some missions require a bit of experimentation to find the optimal solution, usually that solution is to be more aggressive, expand early on and use more hard counters to what the enemy throws at you, though admittedly you won't know what units you need to be ready for until you get wrecked a few times. all in all it was pretty enjoyable for me.

Where do you fags come up with this shit.
CnC remaster was done by Petroglyp
>>
>>1665960
This is incorrect. CnC remaster was done by the same studio, the only difference is that unlike Blizzard, EA actually scoped them properly, and they had Petroglyph's assistance.

Warcraft: Refunded bounced between 'remaster', 'reimagining', and 'new DOTA mapmaker but this time we get all rights pretty please'. It was entirely Blizzard's fault it was shit.

>>1665979
This is an artist
Do you understand the difference between making a game and just making the art for it?
>>
>>1665960
>CnC remaster was done by Petroglyp(h)

At best Petroglyph made jukebox feature, provided EA and sweatshop with the source code and some technical advice
At worst they were involved in the production only for their logo to be put on the box art in order to bolster the sales of the game, "Hey look goy... C&C fans! Petroglyph are involved, they are former Westwood devs remember? (With only 2.5 actual ex-Westwood devs remaining at Petroglyph, with 2 people being Joe Bostic and janitor, and 0.5 being Frank Klepacki because he's literally everywhere these days)"
>>
>>1665981

>I think anon was referring to the tiberian flora and fona present in Tiberian Sun,
Yes. I always hated how C&C3 did away with that and re-imagined Tiberium to just be green crystals growing over everything and not a plant that produces green crystals on these pod things after it spreads roots through the soil to leech all minerals and nutrients. Spreading itself as well through blossom trees that it mutates from the native environment. Then all the other stuff you see in Tiberun Sun. C&C3 was such a misstep.

>>1663906

Not necessary and even a bad idea because raids from the SW base will eventually come from there. Unless you base creep to passively interrupt the raids, but that has other disadvantages.

Am I the only one terrible at rts games like C&C because I treat it like a city builder?
>>
>>1667804
infantry base mainly becomes a problem if you rush to save the convoy without disposing of the vehicle base first, because they're entrenched all over the city and containing them is pretty micro intensive, which may cause you to mismanage the other front and lose your tanks. air base doesn't even build vertigos so all it can do is deal chip damage with venoms unless your infantry is out in the open, where it shouldn't be because APCs exist.
but after giving it some thought I believe this mission mainly confuses the players because it gives them the wrong idea. you're told that reinforcements will come if you just hold on, so that's what people tend to do. then it turns out that the promised reinforcements are a meager 6 basic vehicles and an mcv, and you even need to rescue them because of nod ambush, so that's what people tend to do next, splitting their forces and compromising the defences of their base. then they usually get overran by tanks while entrenched nod infantry grinds up whatever they sent to save the convoy. also the whole energy management gimmick is another thing which is largely blown out of proportions by the game's narration. switching the turrets all the time requires a lot of micro and it might be quite overwhelming, but in fact if you're playing correctly then you should have a steadily growing armored force (you should not lose vehicles in the initial phase of defence, you're supposed to hug your war factory and repair them) which quickly renders anti tank turrets unnecessary. in other words it's better to focus on vehicle micro than on power juggling micro. tanks are mobile, gain vet and are free to repair, while turrets just drain your limited economy

Tldr, Slipgate Ironworks, known for having issues with every project they worked on, fucked up big time this time by making a "remaster" of Kingpin: Life of Crime, they were so lazy and sloppy in fact, that they didn't even AI-upscaled old textures while claiming to redraw them by hand, they literally AI-generated new textures. And now Slipgate, 3D Realms to whom they are bitch and Embracer Group in general to whom 3D Realms are bitch, were hit with massive layoffs. And all that with Embracer Group imploding on itself much like its predecessor, THQ.

And Plokite is either already fired, or will be soon, and he doesn't want links to his favorite inflation artists and accusations of coopting someone else's projects to be the first things that his possible employers will find about him while doing the background check.

Explaining it to you would take too much time and would probably be worthless; look at it this way, the banks had a free money jar running for the past decade or so, and Embracer exploited this free money jar to buy enough studios to get a big buyout and cash, but then the free money jar got stoppered up and Embracer was left holding the bag.

Imagine Tiberian Dawn but in 3D, not the N64 port, just Tiberian Dawn but in 3D, BUT strapped off all its charm and with RA3 fetus melted to it in some sort of daemonculaba.

And you will have a modern 3D RTS game with all the problems of one of the first RTS games that came out 30 years. But the thing is that one game came out 30 years ago when everything was still a novelty and each new game was trying to push the limits and add something, and another is supposed to revive the genre while actively regressing because "classical and just like old C&C games".

No, it loops around your defences looking for a gap if given enough time. It also can hunt your harvesters. The only way to prevent all that is to base creep.

It does, eventually. I don't remember much from v1.0 but the things I'm describing is how v1.09 works.

T-55 makes much more sense as a matchup against GDI's Abrams and the actual unit in-game always was closer to a round-turreted T-55/72 than a Bradley (which mounts a rapid-fire autocannon).

Yes I wish the light and coil were better made. But the cadmium tank? It is meant to be a display piece, you are not supposed to bite it.
The only serious complain with the set is how easily the package get scratched. I guess it build character or something.

As for the game, this probably the best thing we going to get. It is not like they will fund a remake anytime soon with the state of aa or aaa rts.

Nah, the Bible being literally true in C&C makes it unique. Very controversial for modern audiences. I think they should have done a little bit more with it. For instance, if Firestorm was based off of both the Nod and GDI campaigns being canon then it would be fitting and consistent with the divine protection Kane has that both McNeil and Solomon may have harmed him and "won the war" at the end, only to be immediately cast down. Hell, considering the Philadelphia is destroyed of C&C 3 they may as well have done it at the end of Tiberian Sun. It would make sense then during Firestorm if the communications problems are a result of the space station being blown up and debris still raining down, not to mention the loss of GDI high command. At the same time, the increased Tiberium mutations could be the result of Kane's missile being launched just before McNeil ransacked his temple.

That's still my headcanon to this day since I never played C&C 3.

I prefer the bradley because I don't like units from Red Alert and Command & Conquer being literally the same. Same function in game terms, but I think there is great visual variety between Red Alert and C&C by replacing the Light Tank and Artillery with new modded models.

Most should run out of the box, though if you want to play on 1080 you might have to do some Ini editing, Generals apperently has some issues, but those seems to be getting fixed .
The only issue is playing Multiplayer, which you have to rely on stuff like cncnet, or in the case generals wait that the fan patch works on the steam version.

you can see Cnc.community if they update the statuses on that front.
>>
These are old games that should have been massively reduced ages ago, but EA thought it would be a good business decision to try and suffocate the franchise. I think the move shows this is the end of the franchise in the eyes of EA.

Compared to other somparable games, the price could be lower, but it's not terrible.

Then again, this is steam, where you are loaning games only.

I think I may just wait for them to come to gog and buy them there.
Most other games released in this batch are cheaper on gog, so comparing the prices, I expect C&C franchise to be $5 there when it comes. But also, still have a fuckton of games to go through.

What's the context for this? Steam doesn't host source code and the source code for TD/RA is open source.
>>
>>1699772
Owning the source code is critical for a remaster, doesn't matter if the game's open source, without the original programming files you cannot rebuild a game from the ground up. You cannot remaster an old car from scratch if you don't have the car factory.

How did you guys beat the Generals Challenge on hard?
When it came out I probably just beat it on easy with turtle into superweapon spam, so I wanted to revisit it and try to beat it "fairly" on hard, preferably just using units without base defenses, superweapons and free money buildings.
BUT I can't do it. Already in the 2nd mission (vs Stealth), the enemy unit spam starts early and just hits hard forever. I can't repair and rebuild my guys fast enough to handle the attack waves + damage from enemy superweapons and powers (fuck powers especially, fucking toxin bomb just declares everything that moves in my base dead).
Not to mention the attacking part is unexpectedly obnoxious. Units really are made out of paper in this game for better or worse. On one hand I can wreck most things easily with some inferno forcefire. On the other hand if there is any air or something passes through, the whole blob goes goodbye.
And the obvious solution is "support them with direct combat units". And I do, but they inevitably step 1cm away from the blob into enemy base defense range and evaporate instantly. And the vehicle pathfinding in this game is surprisingly shit so it happens a lot.
I eventually gave up on my goal and just decided to try anything that works, and found the simplest winning combo of:
>Rush expansion + oils ASAP
>Bunker up with defenses
>Eat shit while teching up
>Snipe enemy superweapon with SW/powers
>Get free money economy up
>Slowly chip away until a death ball is assembled
>Go around cleaning up the dead opponent
But there's gotta be a nicer way to do it other than turtling up. Maybe I chose the wrong general for it (I chose Inf).
Also for some reason vs Laser my units all got stuck on some non-existing stealth enemy and I had to manually move focus to actual enemies.

They didn't the only reason Nod had any presence in Australia was that the Black Hand fucked off to the Australian badlands after Tiberian Sun and GDI, who engineered the entire rebellion in the first place, let them.

GDI decided to let the Black Hand rot in Western Australia so Macrion could have his giant Waco Compound.

Then when Kane took back the Black Hand and caused the massive explosion, GDI was forced to abandon large parts of Australia in the aftermath which let Nod move in.

>[Verse 1]
Meet Kane, leader of the Brotherhood of Nod
Seeking redemption, he longs to return to God
Through his desire for conquest, he started a Tiberian War
Now is the world really better than it was before?

>[Verse 2]
Got into a fight with the GDI's might
Now it's up to General Sheppard to set things right
Under the banner of peace, he incites the brawl
To finally put an end to this dark turmoil

>[chorus]
In the shadows we stand, GDI's strength our guide
Against Nod's dark hand, we'll turn the tide
With General Sheppard's might, we'll make our stand
For a future of peace, across our land

>[Verse 3]
Next up we got Anton and Oxanna
They really think Tiberium is akin to God's manna
The war continues for a round two
But the future's uncertain, our fate we'll pursue

>[Verse 4]
Battle mechs and Mammoth Tanks are deployed
Nod's forces, in the end, are destroyed
But the war is far, unlikely to be over
Kane can't die, he's like a rover

All those tanks and UFO's, bros, what do I do? I guess Guardian GI's are the answer, but it's so tedious positioning them individually. I mean they give you 20 minutes in this mission to prepare, but replacing the ones who die while the combat is still going on sucks. Also I tried using prism tanks since they were so effective in the previous mission but it turns out they're no good against tanks.
