CnC Modding Encyclopedia

ModEnc isn't exactly a tutorial (though it does contain some of its own), but this is the best place I could find for this. I'm surprised how few people seem to know about this, so I figured I ought to stick it on the forum.

As stated on the front page:

Quote

[ModEnc is a] user-expandable guide to modding Command & Conquer. All RA2/YR INI flags are accessible...[as well as] a wide range of modding-specific pages dealing with with advanced topics and beginner problems alike, conveniently accessible through ModEnc:Categories or Special:Allpages.

This is incredibly useful in particular to mappers who want to figure out how to mess with their maps' INI. I would have posted this in the mapping discussion forum, but it didn't seem as appropriate. Hopefully people will be able to find it here.

So, how about the older games? Is the wiki also meant for modding stuff for C&C1, RA1 and TS?

Yup, it covers all the C&C games and it even has some info on Ares.

Sorry for the late reply, this one slipped by me.

TS and RA2 don't qualify as "all the C&C games".

I know it covers Tiberian Dawn and RA1 at least a little. I wouldn't know how much though, I've only ever had the need to look stuff up on the newer games.

Newer games don't exist on ModEnc, unless there's an incredibly hidden Gen/TW/RA3/TT section.

Oh, yeah, the EA games. I haven't seen those anywhere. It doesn't have anything on Renegade either, does it?

TS was the first C&C game on the PC released under EA :P

But yeah, overselling is never a good thing.

I meant the "pure" EA games. The ones that came out after Westwood bit the dust.

Yeah, sorry, my bad. I hardly ever think about the newer C&C games, they didn't come to mind.

They're a completely different game engine though...

      First version of the tool. The only thing this can do is preview .mrf files by applying the remap filter to a given screenshot.
      http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/project_stuff/2014/FilterCreator/filterviewer.rar (needs .Net 3.5)
      (Includes a screenshot + all .mrf files for the desert and temperate theaters)
      This is the desert shadow ("shade") filter:

      It seems a lot of the mrf files (like the one used for the shroud edges) have multiple tables inside them. I think this is the shroud edges table (for Temperate):

      The final tool will basically have 2 panes, one to view an existing MRF file on a pic like this already does, while the other will have a previewer for the new theater's screenshot, with a set of hue/brightness/saturation/etc tools to make the image on the other preview pane match the loaded mrf filter view. Then once it matches, it can generate a table out of that.
      I'll probably allow saving these filter values as presets so stuff like for example the shadow under units can easily be generated once the filter values have been figured out.

      When I try and play ra2 not on CnCNet my game either freezes during game (it actually still lets me type but I can’t see move or see the typing). It’s also just straight up closed out on me, any ideas?

      As the title says, My IP has been listed at DroneBL, I viewed the listing, and the section "Why?" says it's because my IP address is an 'IRC Spam Drone', Nothing suspicious happened to my IP since the last year, i played Mental Omega online today and when trying to connect, it worked really fine several hours ago, but few hours later, the 'Your IP Address has been listed at DroneBL' has been present everytime i connect to CnCNet, not only that, the exact same message is on Yuri's Revenge's CnCNet client too, what should i do? should i request removal? I'm not sure if this will result in something much worse like deleting my IP or being unable to use some servers such as Valve's matchmaking servers, Any idea what to do please?

      How do I favorite maps in the CNCnet launcher? It's getting unwieldy to sort 3000 maps. I've looked, but I can't seem to find the answer on the forums.

      Hi all,
       
      In the original C&C Tiberian Sun you could configure a spy by adding the attribute Disguised=yes to the configuration section of a unit in rules.ini. The unit would then appear as an allied rifle soldier to enemies. It seems this attribute has no effect in the Cncnet version of Tiberian Sun, since my supposed spy is attacked by enemy units when they see him. Is there any way to get this feature back?
      Many thanks for any feedback!
