New version of OpenRA


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

Not much on the Tiberian Dawn side. The last improvements I made were based on your SHP fixes from the CnC patch project. I also added your snow theatre and A-10 crash site.


Interesting development for you is certainly the port of CnC Starwars to OpenRA http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=16023 I see you already found out... and the community effort to clone the original behavior (at least for RA). You might want to join and create a cnc-classic version http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=16023 BetaAI improvements might be the most interesting. http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=15984 It will now capture your buildings, fire super-weapons, use ships/aircrafts and defend it's harvesters.


Some bits for the d2k mod are still awaiting to be merged https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/2339 I completely mapped the DATA.R8 file. However I stopped development for now. There are still a lot of things to implement https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/issues/search?q=d2k Too many issues I can't fix on my own and very little free time. It is playable, but it feels like a CnC clone with Dune 2000 graphics. The menu skin looks really great. Thanks to skilled contributors.


There are also some UPnP improvements awaiting to be merged https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/2403


However Chris is currently in a bug-fixing and balancing frenzy for the ra mod as the community is moving towards E-Sport tournaments (the last one had live streaming with commentators).

Jk originally converted the Snow tileset to C&C1... please credit him properly. All I did was make some minor fixes to it, and add the Desert tiberium SHP files into it, which, due to the wrong palette, looks snowy on it :P




Well, it seems he is credited properly on the 20101013 update in the full credits file, at least.

Hmm that isn't really useful. I was asking since their are no tools to make full screen previews of maps, as a workaround you need to run RAED in a VM at 3200x3200, make a screenshot then edit it. Obviously this isn't that handy.
