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.

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.

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

Posted Image
First of all, thanks for waiting these 7 years until this new release of C&C:Reloaded.

I have been working the last few years to complete this new release & this is the final product of hard work. July 7 of 2012 is the 7º anniversary of the first public release, in 2005 and to celebrate it I released this new mod version in that special date (as always with delays :-P ). Moreover, I have planned what new features will come next, like finish the TS GDI campaign & the Firestorm campaigns (& more maps, more TS graphic improvements etc.
I hope you can enjoy it! :-)

Because the changelog is too long I'll list the main features:
- Restored Yuri's Revenge, Red Alert 2 and Nod's Tiberian Sun single player campaigns (53 selectable missions in total from these C&C games but with extra AI code on each single player campaign from skirmish game mode to increase a bit the difficulty).
- AI of each side has been re-designed from scratch.
- Added CnCNet support. Now you can play online with other people from the "Network" (LAN) button. You can know how many players are online in the LAN lobby without running the game watching the stats from cncnet.org.
- More TS graphics have been improved since the last public release.
- 11 new detailed multiplayer maps (TS maps).
- Dozens of additions/fixes.

June 2012, Updates summary

I added some new screenshots in-game of the current state of the mod at modDB. As I said previously I have been working fixing TS graphics & possible bugs I could find in YR/RA2/TS missions (Nod only in this release) for the v1.0 of C&C:Reloaded.

There are those images I mentioned before:

In addition: If you want help me with the Mod Launcher testing I'm preparing for the 1.0 release I left a copy of the old v0.98 release of this mod packed with this program in this forum topic, feedback would be necessary to polish any possible bug I couldn't notice.

Soon more news... ;-)

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) :

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. ;)

Development report

Hi again!

For who not visit the forum I'm going to do a small resum to justify the lack of news in the website:
- Features freeze since months, including AI (except 2 features that will be added/changed if Ares 0.2 will have it, related to "thiefs" & "carryall").
- Fixed YR campaigns & converted RA2 campaigns.
- Converting TS campaigns (still under development). Having the "infrastructure" I asked me: "Why not now?", unlike RA2 missions here I have a lot of "small details" that I need to fix & in addition FinalSun map editor didn't help me to know what speech "number" is what "xx-xxxxxx" file, etc...

You can do numbers of how much missions could have the 1.0 release.

In the worst case, always I can stop the development, hide unfinished TS campaigns, release the v1.0 with only YR & RA2 missions & re-enable them again in a future update when I finish those missions.
Of couse when I say TS I'm not forgeting FS missions but for now the priority are the original from TS.
Unlike RA2 or YR missions the TS missions will be "blessed" with some AI scripts from skirmish because you should remember that AI was a "bit" brain-dead in TS missions, but well, that's another history...

For more news, as always, in the development forum.

Note: sorry if I forgot to mention other changes since the last development report but I think that these are the most visible :p
