Bit of a cash in but theres a good few i havent got - odd considering how much of a fan i am lol - and they are reworking them all alledgedly - the installs and stuff i think, but also for XP compatibility. Hopefully they'll ditch the IPX part for lan games and make them all IP-friendly like C&C:Generals is hehe
I used to play RA2 LOADS a long time ago. No idea where my discs are (yes i bought it!). If I remember to dig them out ill take a butchers
Spent some time making some 'money' maps to help those multi-hour lan games last! Loved making huge bases surrouned by turrets/OoL(oblisk)/sam sites/V2 rockets - kinda lost sight of 'blow your enemy up' and made it 'dig yourself in'.
Edit: HAHA wrong version of C&C RA2 was telsa coils+turrets still, i built plenty of them If the internet side of things arent so good we could setup vpn and play LAN games so to speak.
My real love was Quake1 CTF but it had to die at some point.
Please do frazer - the only reason me and my mate lost the enjoyment online was because of the cheaters, but all the official servers are being turned into the XWIS servers [links on my mirrir site above] or something like that so once again, you'll be able to chat on the online section, and so on.
We stopped playing it ages ago....then started playing it again and were on it solidly for a good 3 months, mainly local lan against the cpu using the mods etc, but then stopped again [as we were having dreams of C&C lol]
But with the online side of things being sorted out, maybe we'll be back. I will at any rate
If u luv the game but got bored of it, give the mods a blast - they are the cause of many months of continual play again lol
You wont regret it, especially if they help make then more stable in the compiliation remake
....no i dont work for EA lol
You didnt play anything after Tib Sun???? You are/were/will be [lol] seriously missing out. RA2 (and YR) is sooo much better. Generals adds a new twist to it in 3D [not to everyone's taste tho btw]. I personally prefer YR over Generals but generals is still great if ur paitient with it and get used to it.
I love General's and all the series.
I wish EA were not so quick to delete the range and scrap the WestWood team.
The reworking is good. I just want General's 2 and renegade 2 (screenies of this game appeared on the net)
I'm a big C&C fan particularly generals: zero hour
played and completed all 3 storylines for C&C Generals and with zero hour got to a chinese mission based on world opinion and a GLA level where you have to steal a base or 3 (final level on that one).
Love the generals challenge: especially the dragon lady who is the last to face.
and my personal favourite piece of hardware is the supersonic aurora bomber, untouchable to the target, usually gets creamed on the way back.
Which is why I build squadrons, 12 of those bearing down usually devastate an enemy base quite effectively.
i've only just got generals myself, but i think its really cool, not sure about number 3, my problem is that even with a good spec computer new games are slow on it, i have 768mb RAM, yet AGe of empires 3 which only need 256 runs very,very slow,
so i think i'll leave the new games til i get my new PC
If anyone wants to chat about generals i'm happy to
i got it from a freind who bought the deluxe edition of generals and zero hour, so he gave his original copy of generals, i'd never played the c and c series before, i just heard generals was good, but to be honest, the game i fell into recently is cossacks, amazingly fun,
takes up all my working time lol, i only mean to lay it at lunch time, but that usually carries on into worktime lol,
knock at door, "sorry, i'm busy, i'm doing, erm, important diagnostics, come back later"
