C&C: Reloaded 1.3

tittle_bar_03.gif

 

Another C&C:Reloaded anniversary and as I commented in FaceBook few days ago here we have the "1.3" release instead of the "1.5" due the lack of free time. So no Tiberian Sun GDI campaign & other features I wanted include on the next major release of C&C:Reloaded (these new additions will have to wait for the previously mentioned "1.5" release). In addition, I also published the download links of the RA2 video pack and theme packs with its own installer in the main download page of the C&C:R website. After the installation go to the Addons tab and enable them.

 

The changelog isn't as big as the 1.0 release but I hope the AI is to your liking :-)

If you want improve the AI please do your feedback in this forum topic:

C&C: Reloaded 1.0.6 (hotfix)

I uploaded the hotfix release C&C:R v1.0.6
Is a maintenance release so no important changes until the next major revision.

It is an acumulative update so you don't need install any previous update (v1.0.x) before this one.

This is the list of changes from 1.0.4 to 1.0.6:
- Updated Ares to stable version 0.2P1. It fix an important bug related to bridges.
- Added a DOS batch executable that can enable/disable the mod. Ideal for some users with a problem when activating the mod with the C&C:R mod launcher I couldn't reproduce.


Can be downloaded from here or in ModDB.

C&C: Reloaded 1.0.4 (minor update)

This minor update fixes some problems of the initial 1.0 release (or newer) and probably the last before the next major release. No graphical changes until the next major revision.

It is an acumulative update so you don't need install any previous update (v1.0.x) before this one.

This is the list of changes from 1.0.3 to 1.0.4:
- Updated Ares to stable version 0.2.
- Replaced "Dark Pink" selectable color by "Tan", "Dark Lime" and "Olive".
- Now messages color of each mission that isn't for Allies or Soviets will be green instead of blue.
- Fixed random percentages for each side. Before almost always a RA2 was selected when player used "Random" option.
- Increased attack intervals in Easy & Normal dificulty levels. Before all dificulty levels were "almost" identical.
- Nod Repair Vehicle, Nod Cyborg Commando & GDI Mammoth Mk. II menace for the AI increased.
- Decreased strength of the GDI Mammoth Mk. II from 1300 to 1100.
- Decreased building time penalization for GDI Mammoth Mk. II from 50% to 25%.
- Now can not be built Yuri & Soviet versions of the Clonning Vats at the same time. Yuri Clonning Vats, like the Soviet version, can not be deployed with the Soviet Industrial Plant at the same time.
- In Nod mission 7: "Destroy the Research Facility" (TS campaign) Multi-Missile super weapon damage increased.
- In Nod mission 9: "Protect the Waste Convoys" gas clouds damage (produced by the Chemical Missile super weapon) decreased 33% and gas clouds duration increased by 25%.
- Now AI Nod Stealth Tanks will attack automatically air targets. Human players still have to target manually air units.
- Re-done Naval War game mode. The few ground units that are still buildable will have an extra build time penalty of 300%.
- Original multiplayer maps removed from the Naval War game mode list:
···· May Day (2)
···· Siberian Wastes (2-6)
···· Wild Animal Park (2-6)
- Original multiplayer maps included into the Naval War game mode list:
···· Breakaway (2-3)
···· No Rest for the Wicked (2-4)
···· Oceanside (2-4)
···· Tsunami (2-4)
···· Bay of Pigs (2-6)
···· Bermuda Triangle (2-6)
···· Official Tournament Map (8)
- Some minor skirmish AI bug fixes.
- Updated AI of the single player campaigns with the most recent skirmish AI.
- Restored multiplayer map: Tour Of Egypt (2-6).

FA2: TS terrain palette support

I'm going to talk about a tool I developed some days ago but I haven't finished it until today.
One of the problems when you are creating a TS map in Final Alert 2 is that FA2 not reads the new palette, only the Desert palete (isodes.pal) inside ra2md.mix. Ok so this tool patch (and unpatch :p ) ra2md.mix with the new colors of the TS terrain. When you have finished you can restore the original file to the original state.

Posted Image


For extra security, there is a check box (see the screenshot) that when is checked does a full copy of ra2md.mix (200MB aprox.) in your game folder (with .backup extension) and instead if unpatch it that backup is used for restoration. About a better FA2 support, for now I haven't finished it but this tool will help you in meanwhile...

You can find it in the Downloads section.

Tip: if you put that executable in your "C&C:Reloaded folder -> mod\" and then you enable the mod a copy in your game folder is made.

C&C: Reloaded 1.0.1 (hotfix)

Hi again!

I released an update that fixes some problems of the initial 1.0 release. No graphical changes until the next major revision.

This is the list of changes:
- Skirmish AI improvements. If all goes well I'll backport the changes into the single player missions.
- Fixed bug in Survivor game mode that forced players to play with only the main unit (the repairer vehicle).
- Now Nod Cyborg is affected by Chaos gas.
- Fixed a mistake in the Psychic Dominator cameo.
- Mirage Tank detection percentage (per individual unit) increased from 15%,5%,2% (hard, normal, easy) to 25%,20%,15%. This percentage is applied only when the Mirage tank is firing.
- C&C:R Mod manager upgraded to the version 3.6.

If I don't change of idea the next major release would be targeted as "v1.5" & mainly will contain the TS GDI campaign, graphic changes/fixes & fixes of know problems, leaving the FS missions for a 2.0 release. (and don't report the save/load crash, isn't related to the mod thanks :-D )

Can be downloaded from here or in ModDB.

May 2012, development update

Hi!

Long time has passed since the last news I published in the website, until now all new updates were published on the C&C:R development forum, ModDB, Facebook & Google+.

The only changes I'm doing for the next 1.0 release are related to TS graphics. I always delayed or post-poned this because hand-fixing resized TS graphis stress me a bit and makes me loose interest quickly but because Ares is more & more close to the stable 0.2 release I decided to not delay it for post-1.0 releases and now I'm fixing those civilian buildings. You can see what I'm saying (v0.98b2 was released ~7 years ago) :

Posted Image


High bridges, TS terrain radar colours, civilian buildings... and for future releases I'll focus in TS terrain tilesets (cliffs, roads, etc).

With those improvements in TS civilian buildings I could start implementing (in future releases) a RA2 feature: garrison into buildings.

Another thing I have to decide before the release is what I'm going to do for the RA2 & TS videos for the RA2 & TS Nod single player campaigns... YR video campaigns aren't a problem but RA2 campaigns can't be used directly from the installed game :-/, well, soon I'll open a forum topic in the C&C:R development sub-forum for disscuss it. Anyway it would be an optional download so it would not delay the mod release.

I hope the next time I'll publish news is for the 1.0 release announcement. ;)

New C&C:R YouTube channel

I still remember that in all these years existed in YouTube 3 or 4 videos about C&C: Reloaded made by fans (1 about the mod installation and other about the v0.98b2 gameplay)...
I'm not a fan of recording HD videos but I decided to open a YT channel (always I wanted to have one) because sometimes can be better show the changes in videos than with words/images.

Posted Image

I haven't lost the time "playing" because thanks to this I detected some bad AI behaviours for some sides and I "fixed" them :lol:
The first 6 HD videos that I uploaded are related to AI vs AI battles. Because I haven't much free HD space for long recordings the battles are from multiple allies of the same side against 1 defender. Sorry if I move too much the screen & the game speed is high but I tried to capture only the battles and a static camera at standard game speed could be bored ;)

Development report #4

Hi again!

For who not visit the forum there will be posted the 4š report of the next C&C:Reloaded release (usually I post them in the Development forum). It will be a bit like a small resum of the other reports.

As I said in previous reports it will be launched as version 1.0 instead of "v0.99 beta X" (X = number) because is very stable than the last public release, it will not be backward compatible (I removed the cloned power plants AI hack for GDI and Nod from the code & re-designed AI scripts), and will use the future **Ares v0.2 as core of the mod development.

AI is "almost" done, I haven't included (yet) the Allied/Nod spy missions because I was more focused in improving/observing how AI worked in-game but spy missions can be recycled from the previous release so this part can be considered finished.

I have tested and implemented all the features that will have the next release (see changelog) and the only task left is fixing TS graphics that I haven't done in the last public release. In this case I'm working to finish all the Nod graphics (main standard/semi-destroyed image, animations, build up) that I left without fixing and I'll fix the Civilian buildings that exist in TS maps.
These are examples of what I mean "fixing bad pixels" (due to the resize of TS buildings to the RA2 size, aprox. a ~20% bigger, I don't remember the exact percentage):

Because fix bad pixels is a slow & tired process to me there will be other TS graphics that probably will not be worked until next mod releases like the TS terrain and any possible image that I forgot to fix in previous releases.

I'm still not decided about if I re-design the C&C:R mod manager, making it more intuitive & removing the updates tab due to the current internet conection speeds (5 years since the last release... now we have better conection speeds & the mod size has been reduced thanks to **Ares) or if I use the Launch Base tool. I'll wait to the end to see how will envolve this tool before I do the final selection.

I hadn't contact in these months of my french traslator of the mod so I'll release C&C:R v1.0 when it is done and if the future C&CBoy returns then the french edition will be published :-)

As final note, I don't know when will be the final release date due to the TS graphics (if I'm not wrong, in this moment I'm counting 12 build ups & 4 animations to be fixed the bad pixels). So in a future report I could indicate when will be published this release and what I'll do for the mod manager.
Nothing more to say... happy new year 2011! :)


** Ares = Is a Yuri's Revenge expansion DLL, the next generation of binary-based Command & Conquer modding that fix bugs from the original RA2:YR engine and expand it with new features that can be used for enrich our mods, totally transparent for the gamer.
