Command & Conquer Remasters have been announced!

Recommended Posts

The big question is.

Are they going with a new engine or using the old ones?

 I think it will be new.

Next, are they sticking with the old sprits on TD/RA! and isometric tiles on TS/RA2? Or are they going with a 3d like this  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGtrJaiUZaA

Since they are remastering it I think they will stick with the old setup. But amp up the graphics. 

Does anyone know?

Since I can help them with the terrain in TS/RA2. I have a lot more ideas that I never put in the TX because of the limitation of the old engine. Stuff like aqueducts, tall flowing grass and wheat for hiding unit from the other player, train bridges and attaching different bridgehead and more ...... 

The Old graphic style has a LOT of gameplay advantages, with fluid playing the game, and not getting blinded by the UI, the are on which you play itself, or tiny annoyances that you get with more complicated 'graphics' which is actually not the graphic resolution nor textures nor reflections or daylight, but just the way, the Isometry /true 3D brings clearity into the pave.

Its also easy to implement things on (Best game to mod in my opinion), change the GAME, instead of rumouring in the graphics, getting no step further.

Now, Better graphics, I think pyroglyph how how they call, will not dare to come with 'nothing worked on' even though I would wish they keep the old style, at least as option, with gameplay-identic 3D mode maybe.

You will get small differences with more graphics, no inload-animation(I LOVE THAT sweet inf going into apc and unloading ofc!, not just disapearing everywhere in all games I hate it too many games do that) anymore, worse quality 3D-Animation than the soft and friendly 2d-sprites.

 

RA2 style was a bit too blinding to the eyes: everything was reflecting and you didnt see the units in front of your nose, because of too much reflection metal effects, snow covered /mix with building design, and it was too hectic, with no 'limit of speed', but neatless endless ongoing in time, but inconvenient UI, which was too complicated to do easy things. Its still something, and you can like it. I could live with it. but you can improve. There are a lot of MODS,

I suggest you to watch some mods of Tiberium dawn, where you have missle trails unit queues, and the humvee corpse remaining after destruction, which is some advancement I would like to have in 'official' remastered ways.

Well, you could do it more professional, but les say, things like thas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZF4hUtsXUg

//BTW I have fun writing and discussing this. hope its okay, I dont like it if someone deletes me without a warning, without me knowing what I do wrong

Good news / Bad news.

Good news

Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert are going to be made.

Bad News

Do to some Youtubers (who will not be named) putting up videos with videos of Rad alert 2 gave the impression that Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 was also to be updated. this is not happening.

Seeing a couple other people posting on the video with the same impression makes me feel a little less stupid.  So unless they say otherwise Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert are the only ones being updated.

1. I find TD/RA1 important, why not make any games about it despite everybody like it/is legendary and what else, despite being just one 'cheap game beyond thousands'

2. I read the announcement Remaster starts with Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert, but that's not all So I expect, I read that like that all games get remastered, with time, and not all games at once, (beginning with the first 2) no doubt. If you publish such a message, you must know that people are knowing it better. Its as you all know, even very hard to justify doing it not. But I think now I said enough.

Its just a question of time, and sorry.

Honestly the game was perfect the way it was. Glitches and all is what made the game. They can remaster this all they want, but I want more continuity in the story line, and a real ending. I know they left the ending open to interpretation. I feel like the remake of this was already done in C&C 3. Either way, i am interested in what they have planned. Loved the entire series. I tend to enjoy the Tiberium saga much more as there is a deep story line that spans all 4 games. The red alert saga was great, but scattered. It was more like what if this happened instead of this.. They to me are their own standalone games. 

I am curious what they would do with the graphics, Like i said, this "remaster" has been done in C&C 3, All updated graphics and storyline. Either way, I hope they send picture soon so we can see what they have in mind.

      Current version of Red Dawn is Red Dawn 2014
       
      Last updated 5-29-20
       
       
      Red Dawn 2014 is standalone like 2013 and still uses Iran Patch/Portable RA that added Hires and better compatibility for Vista and forward systems. Red Dawn 2014 dosen't differ to much from Red Dawn 2013 when it comes to single player missions. The most noteable change is Nod now uses secondary colors for all missions. Five new mission added and one fan made are now included in the game. Jungle theater by Tschokky added and used for five of the new missions.
       
      Red Dawn Online has been merged with Red Dawn 2014. This mean online play on CnCNet 5 (old CnCNet 4 has been removed). Aftermath Game option is now Classic C&C option and when turned on the game will only use C&C95 units and buildings. The exceptions are the Missile Silo, Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport. The Missile Silo is needed as it is the only way for a Nuke to be made. The Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport are need for some RA1 maps most notable "Docklands (Medium)".
       
      RAED (Map/Scenario Editor) has been updated to the version edited by Iran to use all 6 theaters. At this time the CnCNet 5 ra95-spawn.exe dosen't support the Jungle theater but I have updated the CnCNet 5 lobby's map preview generator so when/if CnCNet 5 updates the ra95-spawn.exe to use the Jungle theater things are ready to go.
       
      System Requirements
      Windows 2000, XP, Vista or 7. Launcher and configuration tool require the .Net 2.0 framework. I think you could run on Win95 to ME with out the Launcher and configuration tool by starting the game from the RA95.exe. You may be able to get it to work on Linux and Mac with tweaks. PortableRA's Linux and Mac tabs should be able to help http://iran.cnc-comm.com/ra/

      Old Red Dawn 2012
       
       
      I'm keeping support for Red Dawn 2012 as there is small change of systems out there that won't work with the Iran patch setup. Also it is a good source for modders looking for C&C 95 building and units that are already converted for use in RA1.
       
      System Requirements
      Windows 95, 98 2000, Me, XP, Vista or 7. You may be able to get it to work on Linux with tweaks. I tested Red Dawn on Win 7 however if it is not working on Vista or 7 you can try ddraw.dll by Hifi http://hifi.iki.fi/cnc-ddraw/#download has download link and configuration.

      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!

      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

      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.
