About Me

  1. EDIT: The new mod profile is live! So long time no chat. lol 😀 Since finally completing the story campaigns for Tiberian Dawn Redux a couple years ago I have been repeatedly approached about carrying the mod over into the RA universe with a spinoff. While it's still in the very early stages of development, Red Alert Redux is slowly being brought to life. I haven't decided if it will be a mini-mod type add-on built into TDR (think GDI/Nod vs. Allies/Soviets in skirmish) or a standalone project built off of the renovated C&C Generals SAGE engine TDR is now using. I know a lot of the assets and coding between the original TD and RA games is nearly the same so it would streamline development quite a bit. (looking into the original game files I noticed a lot of the art and audio assets are using the same filenames to confirm this) The biggest hurdles I have will be making a decent naval system, designing, coding, and animating attack dogs and then the Chronosphere stuff. I may also (as I did with TDR) consolidate the unit and structure tech tree and add unit upgrades and special abilities. (e.g. Engineers doubled as Mechanics and APC's doubled as Medics) So who wants Red Alert Redux? And I will say it will not be a 1:1 remake. As I did with TDR I aim to keep as much of the original wacky tech and atmosphere Westwood developed for TD and RA but also have a more realistic spin on it in both appearance and gameplay. I have been considering consulting with the former Cold War Crisis Mod Team and the guys behind Red Alert: A Path Beyond.
  2. Hello, First time using cncnet, I keep getting kicked whenever I join a game in the lobby but don't understand why. Sometimes I get a message saying no connection or problem with connection from one of the players. Or ping will come up with my name as NA. When I join a game in the lobby there's usually no green "I'm ready" button in the bottom left, it's only there if I try host a game (but then when I click it says waiting to connect, please try again in a few seconds or something). Can anyone advise, or help troubleshoot? I'm guessing there's a connection issue my end but dont know how to diagnose. (I have managed somehow to play two online games, no idea why it worked then but not most of the time).
  3. Current version: 1.13.3 (2019/03/21 16:28) The project is built on the .Net framework v3.5 Its code is licensed under the WTFPL.

So I've decided to make my own in c#. With the help of the RA++ team (Omniblade, CCHyper & Tomsons26, anyway) I figured out the font format itself, and managed to make code to read it and show it as image. Apparently this format is used for quite a bit more than C&C1 and RA1; we used fonts from Legend of Kyrandia as test material as well, and apparently this should support Dune II too. Fonts have no colour palette of their own. They are 4-bit (meaning, 16 colour) images that, much like SHP files, receive colours from the game at the moment they're drawn. So I started off by generating a simple black-to-white fade for the palette, with black as the background color. This version also already moved the character down according to the extra Y-offset in the file. Next step: making an actual editor. I already had a zooming pixel image viewer from a little C&C-N64 project I worked on in the past few weeks, so that part was no problem (as already seen in the previous image). So the next step: drawing an editing grid on it. Well, I say "on it", but actually I needed three extra image layers positioned both behind and in front of the original image to pull it off, lol. Transparency is a strange thing in .Net controls. Next was getting a pixel drawn on that to indicate your editing position. That was easier than expected, really, and now I had a nifty giant pixel following my mouse around. Also note the fancy program icon; Tomsons26 made that I decided, around this time, to switch to a more colourful palette that would let you easily distinguish the different indices when editing. I just basically went over all hue values and made a nice little rainbow. I also coded in some extra behaviour to allow disabling the grid, and the red frame that shows you which part of it is actually editable. Of course, an editor is utterly useless if it can't actually save files, a little detail Siberian_GRemlin seemed to forget when he released a "demo" of his editor... eight years ago now. So after editing worked, I went into the mess of trying to save the image data back to palette. It took a few tries to get it right. But, finally, I managed to get a saved file! No, wait, crap, that's one of the failed ones. Ahem. Anyway. The pic I linked before shows the final successful attempt. There's a little pixel I made transparent, in the middle, to prove it was actually edited. Trust me, it was orange originally Now, there's just one thing still missing from the editor... and that's, well, the actual editing, more or less. I could only change the colour to one specific one with the left mouse button, and to background (transparency) with the right mouse button. So I dug up another nice control I had lying around for one of my older projects, namely a palette-loading colour selector. Took some time to adapt it, since the original was meant for 256 colours, but, I'm happy with the final result! It's starting to look good, no? At this moment, it's still missing some vital features, though; you can't change the size of the images or their Y-offset, and you can't add new character images to a font. These will come later, but at this moment, I do actually have a working editor. It's obviously still beta at the moment, but to anyone who wants to mess around with it, here it is: Westwood Font Editor v0.4 The source code is in the folder too, for those who are interested.

Make sure you check the README.txt. http://downloads.cncnet.org/ExampleMod.zip Works for Tiberian Sun, Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn.
  6. Hi everyone, I know there several posts out there on Virtual Machine LAN networking, but I haven't come across any referencing VMware ESXi. Was hoping I could start one. Here's what I'm trying to do... I have a ESXi host running vSphere 6.5. On it are several VM guests running Windows 10 (build 1903). All VMs are using VMNET3 virtual NICS, w/8GB RAM, and quad core vprocs. I'm having a heckuva time getting LAN networking to run for any CNC game (Dune 2000, TD, TS, RA - doesn't matter, symptoms are the same). On the VM, all games install successfully using the latest builds. All will run without error too. On the example below, I'm running Dune 2000. As you can see in 'screenshot 1', it does not allow me to join or create a new game. What's interesting is that the IRC client does not appear to load despite being previously installed. The Windows firewall is turned off. Now, by contrast, on a regular laptop - the same game installer will allow me to create a new game or join an existing one. I welcome your thoughts.
  7. When i click full game (for windows) I then click download but, nothing happens. HELP!
  8. Command & Conquer: Dawn of Tomorrow for Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn Releasing on 30/5/20 C&C: Dawn of Tomorrow is a project for Tiberian Dawn. It has two complete 7 mission campaigns, featuring the main two factions of the project: The Company of Answers and the Forces of Tomorrow. There are also bonus missions for the other factions encountered during the campaigns: Russia, USA, Japan, Chris Brutal's forces and Civilians. The project is not designed for multiplayer at this time--due to the multiple changes I've made to the game, it'd be a little weird (and imbalanced, haha). It's not impossible however if there's interest Who will you lead to victory? Will you attempt to conquer the world single handedly or seek to outwit the competition with corporate espionage? Will you take hold of one of the countries who are under threat from a dangerous terrorist regime? The choice will be yours... it was always meant to be yours... The purpose of this thread is to show off some of the content that's being developed as it happens, so everybody's in the know! I welcome feedback and input on anything, and if you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them. A typical day in the life of a Forces of Tomorrow base. Attacks on all sides. Nothing's getting through. Japanese forces entrench a small settlement against American aggression Private security has taken over as the de-facto policing forces in this area. Note the dual tone structures The Company of Answers lays siege to Tomorrow controlled shores A forward Tomorrow Redoubt stands in defiance against Russian and US forces These terrorists seem ripe for the taking... look, they even have Oil Refineries waiting for us... (thanks to White for the graphic I used as a base for mine) Let's get into it and show off some of the factions' tech trees! Company of Answers Structures Units Forces of Tomorrow Structures Units Russia Structures Units USA Structures Units Japan Structures Units Keep watching this space! I'll be posting at least once a week with how the project is moving along. The next milestone will be a release for people who are interested in my upcoming mission making contest to use! And once again, comments and criticism is most welcome

  10. Hi all I'm now knee-deep in TD SP mapping and am starting to run into questions that I can't answer via Nyerguds guide, opening the default maps or a lot of googling. Is there anyway to improve the AI on gunboats? They seem to find one target and fixate on it until it's dead. If it moves out of range they won't change target to anything else. This is on the "Hunt" AI used by gunboats in all the campaign maps. I've tried putting gunboats in a difference House (Multi3) and using "All to Hunt" on them to refresh their AI state and hopefully get them to re-target, but "All to Hunt" kicks in for every AI unit in every House. I've also tried creating them as a teamtype and giving them MOVE-HUNT-MOVE-HUNT instructions to try to refresh their AI (I had hoped they would ignore the move instructions), but that just results in them swanning around in the water in a really weird manner. I'm unsure where newly built Orca's will arrive from? I have a House (located SE map corner) where the reinforcement edge is set to South, but Orca's seem to come in from the right side of the map, or from the top-right corner? Do player A-10's always come from the top-left corner of the map? Is there anyway to control this? If Chinooks are buildlevel 98 and so are Wooden Fences, is there anyway to give the player the ability to built Chinooks without Fences, or is that just how it is?
  11. Hello admins, My Problem is Centered Around Networking... I have one computer that is "split" into two separate computers by using Softxpand, a multiseat gaming software: Softxpand link: http://miniframe.com Youtube "demonstration" video: https://youtu.be/Z1OFJtXSWHU I am trying to play by LAN server. Using station #1, CnCnet starts the lan server using the internal ip address 127.0.0.1 and hosts a game... On station #2 CnCnet starts up the LAN lobby but doesn't startup the lanserver program because it is already running elsewhere on the computer (station #1). Station #2 can see and join station #1's game in the lobbie, but gets kicked due to connection error... Somehow cncnet must be able to host and join on a multiseat computer setup...Perhaps: .Fix cncnet and using ip address 127.0.0.1 .edit the values in the cncnetlanserver.exe config file .make an update for cncnet in make it compatible with multiseat software Thank you Sirs, Noddynod443
  12. Hi, I've been trying to play Tiberian Dawn in DOSBox and have some questions about it. I'll start with the playlist: Is the game supposed to play Act on Instinct at the start of every mission? At the fourth GDI mission this seems strange. I was more expecting the game to play predetermined tracks at the start of new missions. Also, I think I noticed the game skipping tracks in the playlist and I saw no reason for that to be happening. Thanks in advance
  13. I got the complete whatchawhatever from Origin and I'm trying to relive the wonderful days of my introduction to RTS, but it seems as if none of the games are functioning. For Tiberian Sun, clicking anything in the menu freezes the whole program. For C&C RA2/YR, the mouse is invisible. And so on. Is it really necessary to download third party patches for games that Origin (Electronic Assholes) are charging money for? You have my thanks and best wishes, Me
  14. Hi, I was being nostalgic and decided to reimplement cursor graphics from the PS1 version. Note that some of the changed stuff is not a 1:1 rip from PS1 but a recreation, due to PS1 version lacking some of the sprites. Scroll icons were moved a bit for the smoother transition to the "stop sign" versions. They don't touch screen edge anymore, but still look fine. mouse.zip
  15. I wanna download C&C95 but the link on your website is dead. You guys still got access to that file?
  16. CnCNET is great, and since RA source code has been released this is a huge step in improving the game and adding nice juicy features that allow us to enjoy the game we love. Add a replay system, maybe as an option as saving a replay could add more lag to games. Fix bug where you can ally someone who is trying to Engi your building which prevents it from being captured New .ini keywords, this would allow for more control over making maps of all types from nurple to Defense maps I'll list a few keyword suggestions Ability to remove darkness crate as random chance Chrono (superweapon) Crate Size of Nukes/Demo Trucks explosions Force Ore Regrowth on (ignores lobby setting "Ore Regenerates") Crusher Flag for vehicles Helicopter Firing Delay Auto Attack Flag (Tanya for example) Build Speed Multiplier (per unit/building) New Triggers New blank units if modders want to add them to maps. (Like Ferrets Tiberian Alert mod)

    C&C 95 sidebar issue

    Hi All I have followed what is needed regarding the new config and shaders, but when i go to play a mission the base sidebar is still smaller compared to what others i have seen getting. I have attached a screenshot to try and show what I mean. I have run out of things to test :( any help would be great :) Cheers si
  18. I installed C&C: Dawn of Tomorrow but it doesn't work. I can get it to work by replacing its executable with the one from CnCNet Tiberian Dawn but it will use Tiberian Dawn rules. Any way to get the mod to work without messing it up? Also, here's the error:
  19. Hi. It is 2020 and CnCNet gave us so much improvement when comparing to 2006, when XWIS was the only thing we had. Back there I remember we basically had 3 Map Editiors for TD: CCMap: A Map editor for MS-DOS. Very unstable and ran in Fullscreen on a poor resolution to the day standards. Even poorly now, and we require emulators to run it. CCWMap: A port of the previous map editor to Windows 95. Unstable as hell, but missions created by it worked flawlessly. XCC Map Editor: A new map editor which was great for making multiplayer maps, lot more stable, but bugs prevented single player maps from working. Since 15 years have passed from there, how is the state of art of map editors in TD? Do we still have these issues in XCC? I see that CCWMap still unstable, even on Wine. Do we have new map editors on the road? Thank you.
  20. Custom map previews are enabled again! This gives a great advantage to specialty maps, you can actually make it stand out so players will actually stay and try it out, and also list the required map options in the image Funky even made a little tool that creates the code, to put in map. A simple drag image on top of the tool and voila, Create custom image (256x256 pixels max) Drag image on top of CnCNetPreviewGen.exe Download copy code of created file into your map save map, restart cncnet, pick map, click on blue WARNING button, give me your checksum+map name Reply with checksum and map name here, or pm me whatever u want Then i'll whitelist it!! Give it to me like this example: 5e5af5ae6491ad645de88ca03e8f636bbf78557b=TowerDefense Rally RACE! Jungle [V2] @Agrathore @A3H-Hitman @PTapioK @eliteGi @bk57 @Humble plz let other map makers know too, can't think of them all atm, ty.

  22. We removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina). Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina. If you're running a older version of macOS: You can still download our old version, but it isn't supported by us anymore and we can't really help you with it if there are issues... http://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/files/CnCNet.dmg Note: On macOS mojave you'll need to manually give “Accessibility” permissions to CnCNet to be able to play or else you'll end up with a black screen. If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15: Use bootcamp: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468
  23. EA has just announced the Command & Conquer games that will be Remastered Today EA producer @EA_Jimtern announced that they are remastering two classic Command & Conquer (C&C) titles: The original C&C - Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert Remaster starts with Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert, but that's not all EA Partners up with Petroglyph You read that right. This is huge. Why? For those who don't know, Petroglyph Games is a company that was originally started by former Westwood Las Vegas developers and responsible for games like Star Wars Empire at War, Grey Goo and 8-bit Armies. This means that Westwood veterans such as Joe Bostic (responsible for much of the code in C&C and RA) will be working on the remasters. Joe Bostic from the announcement: Lemon Sky are in the mix too, bringing 4k with them! Lemon Sky Studios are being brought in alongside Petroglyph, which will "bring the 4k glory". They are one of the premier art studios around the world, with a unique speciality in remastering classic RTS titles, including Starcraft. Frank Klepacki is back That's right, with Petroglyph comes Frank Klepacki. Confirmed by his tweet just a moment ago and in a YouTube video published from the announcement. Let your voice be heard! Jim has been adamant from the start about community involvement and feedback and will be listening to feedback from across the C&C community so this is your chance to get your thoughts heard and head over to the Reddit announcement post
  24. Hey, so I want to recommend the classic C&Cs to some people I know, and they may be more likely to try it if it's free. However, while the first free C&C games were released as freeware, the primary sources of downloads are down, the only way is through 3rd party mirrors and the C&C Ultimate Collection includes them for a price. So are the first three games still considered freeware?
