[ Category: News ] - [ @ 05/03/02 ] - [ By: Gange ] - [ Source: Various ]
News been a bit sparse recently, which I apoligise (sue me I can't spell) for, been busy lately. So here is a load of some:


A new community site has opened called "CNC Tomorrow" opened. It has information on all of the Command & Conquer games. Make sure you check out CNC Tomorrow sometime.


Aircraftkiller (ACK) has released his new map Country Meadow, which is now available for download from the good people at Havocide. If you want to play online you can do so now! Havocide have set up a dedicated server that will be running all night witht he map. Here's the information for that.

Host: havohome
Name: Havocide.com -> Aircraftkiller's Map
It will also be up all day Sunday (5/5 starting @ 1pm EST)


CNCSeries.com has written up a patch prognosis article.
A whole new generation of tactics and strategies have been spawned from this patch: while the Orca does give a nice and deadly touch, it is the addition of the Transport helicopter that makes the difference. A flight of these, loaded with engineers and landing in the middle of your base can present a severe pain to the virtual genitals. This also leads to a whole new dimension of teamwork; something that is minimal in many of the ladder based games.
Read the rest here.

Renegade Tools Are Out!!
[ Category: Tools ] - [ @ 04/18/02 ] - [ By: finalduke ] - [ Source: Westwood ]
THe Tools for Renegade are out.
To start with, if you haven't already, grab Discreet's gmax tool Here.

Got that? Now it's time to get our tools, which includes both our pack for gmax and our own editor, as well as documentation on them. Remember, as with all beta development tools, they are not 100% stable. You may, from time to time, experience crashes or lock ups, as development tools are notoriously temperamental. Just remember to save early and often and enjoy!

You can get Westwoods tools, after you've gotten the gmax tool (as our tools won't work without it), get it Here.
