0 Patch 2.2.10 released!

Posted by OmegaBolt on November 25, 2018 in Tech Center News

Patch 2.2.10 has been released, this time with the major theme being revitalising naval combat. Two new units have been added for that - the Gunboat and Zhaba - and existing units have been reworked, moved around on the tech tree etc. Hopefully it feels more well structured, chunkier and satisfying to play on the seas.

Europe has also received another dose of adjustments, with the addition of the Quantum Lab and Crackdown power, making them a bit more versatile and less rigid in their playstyle. Screenshots of those changes can be seen below.

Big Features

  • REWORKED NAVY, including a new ship for both the Allies and the Soviets as well as rebalanced and reworked existing units for more sensible battles on the seas.
  • NEW CONTENT FOR EUROPE: the Quantum Lab on T2, which now provides the Quantum Leap ability, and Crackdown, a T3 power that equips GIs with riot gear!
  • NEW CONTENT AT THE SECRET LAB: the Magnetron! On T3, it now slows units to a crawl, and attaches a magnetic effect to them further slowing other nearby enemies. A highly useful support unit.
  • Lots of big reworks to existing maps with a navy focus, helping to further flesh out that area of the game.
  • 7 brand new, high quality maps for multiplayer!
  • Updated campaign missions to support the new navy as well as fix a few issues and adjust unit availability.
  • Lots of balance adjustments to existing units and bug fixes.

1 Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert 1 remasters are next in line!

Posted by Banshee on November 14, 2018 in C&C Guild News

Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert 1 are being remastered at Petroglyph Studios and being published by EA. Frank Klepacki will be doing the music, of course. Here's the announcement from EA itself:

 

 


Fellow Command & Conquer fans,

 

A month ago, we let the Command & Conquer™ community know we were bringing the franchise back to the PC, starting with a remaster initiative.  The reaction from fans has been amazing, with many of you sharing your favorite C&C moments from the past 23 years. We have been reading these comments and listening intently.  And now, we are ready to reveal our first PC offering and how your suggestions are already influencing our approach.

 

Today, I’m thrilled to tell you we are going back to the beginning. We have decided to remaster Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. And while this is incredibly exciting on its own, we’re also aware of how passionate the community is about the Red Alert universe.  So, we will also remaster the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert™.  But what about the classic expansion packs you may ask - Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath?  Well, C&C and Red Alert wouldn’t be the same without them, so all three expansion packs will be bundled with the base games into one remastered collection - without microtransactions.

 

In addition to the excitement and support of this remaster initiative over the past month, there has also been a healthy skepticism that we can pull this off. How are we possibly going to remaster these titles while maintaining the authenticity of the original experiences? Bottom line, there is no better way to achieve this than to partner with some of the talented developers who brought these original games to life.

 

So, after years of the fans asking for their involvement, I am humbled to announce that EA is going to partner with Petroglyph Games to develop the C&C remastered collection.

 

ea-blog-image-cc-remastered.jpg.adapt.cr

 

Petroglyph Games includes many of the original developers from Westwood Studios, and some of the most influential members of the original Command & Conquer development team from 1995. Joe Bostic is known as the co-creator of C&C, having also served as the Lead Programmer on Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. Steve Tall joined Joe as a Lead Programmer on Red Alert, and Mike Legg contributed to all forms of audio systems at Westwood, having been an employee since 1986!  All three members helped start Petroglyph Games in 2003 after the closure of Westwood and are joined by a veteran group of RTS developers from the past 15+ years. And don’t think we haven’t noticed the #1 request from the community in all the comments from the past month...  You want Frank Klepacki. So as a cherry on top for the fans, we are thrilled to announce that Frank will be re-joining Petroglyph Games to be our Composer and Audio Director for the remaster collection!

 

On a personal note, I can tell you the past few weeks have been surreal. During my first visit to Petroglyph, I was able to brainstorm “C&C feel” with Joe, sit with Frank and hear him recite Commando lines, and gab with Steve about whether we should fix the Tib Dawn Harvester AI.  Getting to chat C&C with the original developers has been one of the highlights of my gamer journey, and I can’t wait for all the incredible conversations to come.

In addition to the fantastic team at Petroglyph, we will also be partnering with Lemon Sky Studios to help bring these original games to 4k glory. Lemon Sky is one of the premier art studios around the world, with a unique specialty in remastering classic RTS titles.  After meeting their team and hearing their passion for C&C, we are incredibly lucky to have them team up with Petroglyph to develop the highest quality C&C possible.

 

The exciting part is that we haven’t started development yet. The community is literally getting in on the ground floor of this project and have every opportunity to help influence how we build this remastered experience. Please continue to engage on Reddit and community channels and help us create the best possible remasters of C&C and Red Alert!

 

Welcome Back, Commander!

And here is a video as a bonus:

 

 

 

Our friends over Petrolution will also be covering these games. Discuss it here, share your ideas. And visit Petrolution to know more about the Alamo engine, which has great chances to be used in these projects.

4 Contra 009 work in progress - News Update 15

Posted by predator_bg on September 16, 2018 in Contra News (eng)

Hi guys!! (and girls, I hope there is at least one girl playing Contra mod)

Autumn did not officially start yet, but sometimes we like to be super crazy and break the rules.
So even before Autumn we are bringing you Autumn update (how crazy is that)!?

As we are heading towards Contra 009 FINAL release, we are polishing and improving existing units, AI behavior and gameplay.

In this update we will show you some of the updated units. Of course, besides just units renders, there are a lot of "touches" which you will notice when actually playing.
Once again, we are doing this all for you, so please be a bit more patient.

- First one is updated Microwave Tank for Laser general. Finally that old tuna fish can is replaced with better model. Yes, he is using Avenger bottom, and no, not every tank has to be super unique.

11.1.jpg

- "Gate guardians" are cool guardian drones made only for Seraph mech. Due to game balance Seraph`s shield is removed. New drones are made by default, you don't have to spend money for them. They protect Seraph in pair. Repairing him while standing above him, destroying missiles with lasers, and shooting on both infantry and vehicles. Drones cannot be killed (nor targeted) until Seraph dies.

22.jpg

- Cybernetic general Factory has been remade because of few reasons. First one is, old model had really bad UVW map where some parts of texture were stretched. When exported, few animation frames were cut (no one actually noticed and I never told anyone). And texture style didn't fit other USA structures. So now, you can see brand new factory which fits Ironhand style. Factory doesn't have dining room, sleeping room and other rooms like barracks, instead, there is a butchery needed for assembly of human and robot parts. Where are human parts from? Well, don't ask me. Ask general Ironhand who claims there are less homeless on the streets since he runs his program.

66.jpg

- Another USA structure makeover is given to Airforce generals Superweapon. Again, bad UVW map and texture design, but also lack of night version led to improvement. Few more details added, looks neat in game.

55.jpg

- China also got few things. Zhu Rong or Thermobaric mortar, got improved cannon and few details attached. Once you play general Bao challenge, you will know you are in Hell.

33.jpg

- Contra doesn't have many public models in game. In fact, there is one only. It is famous Dragon Tank. I couldn't find a better concept for this true masterpiece, in order to make this tank unique for Contra. At the end, it would be just a slight variant of this unit. So, Dragon tank got his texture and UVW map improved to fit all other China tanks in Contra mod.

44.jpg

- And at last, Tank general Overlord Headquarters got improved structure. We will all agree that old one was lacking details.

77.jpg

And, at the end, as usual...

Please don't ask for release date as we don't know exactly. Yes, we are doing our best to release 009 FINAL this year. Both you and we are waiting for this very long. But keep in mind that we are trying not to release a version filled with bugs, or with broken gameplay where one general rules over others. We are aware that we won't be able to achieve a perfect balance, but we assure you that it will be much better than before. That's hard when you have so many unique units.

Anyway, thank you for patience, and thank you for support. It means a lot!

0 August Update

Posted by OmegaBolt on September 2, 2018 in Tech Center News

The next patch is well underway and possibly the most game-changing yet as it includes alterations to several countries- more on those can be read on the relevant images below.

As well as those, there is certainly more to come, the usual host of balance changes and many new maps.

Community YouTube Content
Lots of people have started uploading multiplayer games of Red-Resurrection. Check out their channels and subscribe to follow for future matches.
 
A 2v2 on Sovereign's channel:
 


A 1v1 from JackoDerp:
 


And a 1v1 from WavePy:
 

 
Often these videos feature some of the new upcoming content first, so worth a watch if you're interested in seeing how the latest changes play in action, and of course you can always join the Discord channel to get involved yourself!

That's all this update but as always the next patch isn't too far away and should definitely see the mod shape up into something even more complete, polished and fun to play!

0 Patch 2.2.8 released!

Posted by OmegaBolt on August 2, 2018 in Tech Center News

Patch 2.2.8 for YR Red-Resurrection has been released! This one's been somewhat delayed but it has all been for good reasons. In the background, or rather on the discord channel, this patch has been gestating and tested on a weekly basis to include bigger changes than can be achieved in a simple one month patch!

Big Features

  • EUROPEAN COUNTRY REWORK- Chrono Legionnaires have been moved to T3, and Sonic Enforcers moved up to T4, with related balance tweaks. This is to help make Europe slightly easier to combat on T3, as the Sonic Enforcer/Bishop combo was incredibly powerful, but it also provides them with more mobility and versatility earlier on. Chrono Legionnaires were also underused in multiplayer, making them more relevant now. Furthermore, Speedways have been completely removed and instead Warp Nodes now also buff the speed of surrounding units.
  • UNIVERSAL SELF HEAL CHANGE- Thanks to a new feature from AlexB, the developer of Ares, it is now possible for combat to prevent self healing- and that is applied to Red-Resurrection. Now, a unit will not self heal for 10 seconds after taking damage. This is great as it prevents certain units being unkillable in certain situations due to out healing damage, such as a single Rocketeer vs a Crazy Ivan. This affects most units in the mod, so healing may be adjusted in future patches to compensate.
  • TWENTY-TWO BRAND NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS- many made exclusively for this mod, and all of great quality!
  • And dozens more changes, including many balance adjustments, bug fixes and graphical tweaks.
Here are a few of the new maps.

12 Mental Omega News Bulletin #30 (13/06/2018)

Posted by Speeder on June 13, 2018 in Mental Omega APYR News

summer2018.jpg

 
As you might have heard or read, the original plan of mine for patch 3.3.4 for Mental Omega was to have it contain the conclusion of the Act Two storyline - the remaining 7 missions, the names of which you already know. After some thought and some recent developments, I've decided to switch the plans a bit and release new content to the players sooner, since I've known for a while that these final missions of Act Two would take more time and effort than usual to be completed, and a release earlier than in December would not be possible (and this date is not final either). As such, there's going to be an additional patch in Summer - the 3.3.4 update will become something different than I initially intended.
 

morales_pv.jpg

 
Thanks to the efforts of our mission designers, both veterans and newcomers, we've prepared 9 completely new singleplayer missions for this surprise update! They are as follows:

  • Allied Covert Op Mission Fullmetal
  • Allied Covert Op Mission Gridlock
  • Soviet Covert Op Mission Eclipse
  • Soviet Covert Op Mission Dawnbreaker
  • Soviet Covert Op Mission Brothers in Arms
  • Epsilon Covert Op Mission Taciturn
  • Epsilon Covert Op Mission Nightcrawler
  • Epsilon Covert Op Mission Survivors
  • Foehn Origins Mission The Great Beyond

The Great Beyond is the 2nd out of three additional missions for the Foehn Origins. Back when I first announced Nobody Home for Foehn, I intended for the Origins campaign to have 3 missions total, however, thanks to Esther and Ollerus, the final number of missions in it will be 6, with the last 2 missions to be released alongside the finales of Allied, Soviet and Epsilon campaigns.
 
While Covert Ops are mostly side stories, Dawnbreaker and Brothers in Arms are both part of the final Soviet story arc: the liberation of Russia from Yuri's hands. As the Soviet task force on the Moon is preparing for their counter attack, the forces that remained on Earth after Meltdown begin the grand operation ahead of them, preparing the grounds for the major siege of Moscow.
 
Eclipse is a Chinese mission which takes place during their invasion of Japan in Act One. Survivors shows what Malver has done after Obsidian Sands, while Nightcrawler does the same for Rahn. Taciturn takes place between Act One and Act Two and is about Yuri's forces chasing down a Chinese agent who has found out the big Russian secret. The Allied Covert Ops, Fullmetal and Gridlock show what challenges the other task forces from the Paradox Expedition had to face, while the Paradox Engine itself was moving towards Cape Town.

In addition to the new Foehn Origins mission and Covert Ops, another Challenge map will be added:

  • Firestorm Challenge against the Wings of Coronia armies with a Blasticade stronghold

As usual, new skirmish/multiplayer maps will also be available. They are as follows:

  • '(2) Closed Wide Open', '(2) Golden Spiral', '(2) Inferno Galore', '(3) Easter Island', '(4) Blood Feud Redux', '(4) Blue Hawaii', '(4) Dune Petrol',  '(4) Double Shredder', '(4) Goldshire', '(4) Tetris', '(4) The Well', '(4) Woody Island', '(6) Avalanche', '(6) Black's Big Bluff',  '(6) Death Stranded', '(6) Metallic Madness', '(6) Rorschach', '(6) Winter Desolation'

Out of the all planned bugfixes and changes, I believe the following are the most noteworthy:

  • 'Free for All' can be chosen again as a game mode, it blocks the ability to make alliances before and during battle with no exceptions
  • the Built statistic has been added to the Statistics screen, which can now be completely cleared through a new button in the client
  • players can now choose a 'Random subfaction from a specific side' option in skirmish/multiplayer
  • Observers can now see a player's current production or money by clicking on their buildings
  • all amphibious transports are now immune to EMP weapons (but not freezing weapons)
  • several of Foehn infantry had their transport size reduced from 2 to 1 and can form IFV combos
  • Allied Co-Op map 'Low Rider' fully works again

You can see the complete list of upcoming new additions, proposed changes and bugfixes under the following link:

Send us all the feedback regarding the proposed changes for the new update at the usual places. Long live Command & Conquer!

0 New D-day website

Posted by Mig Eater on June 6, 2018 in D-Day News

Yep it's that day of the year again, June 6th! Today marks the 74th anniversary of the Allied amphibious landing in Northern France which led the way for the liberation of Western Europe from German occupation.  

Of course today is also the anniversary of the Red Alert 2 mod D-day, which has now been in development for 16 years. To celebrate I have completely redone the D-day website with a new look and features. I plan to continue working on the new site to add more information and content in the coming weeks, which I'll post updates about on D-day's Facebook and Twitter pages.


ddaysite.png




In addition to the new website I have also created a Discord chat server for D-day. I will be there as much as I can, so feel free to join in and ask me any question you may have about D-day.
