Implications of the C&C Remastered collection for OpenRA

Never thought they'd actually remaster the very early titles. I'm super excited about it but at the same time worried that this puts OpenRA into competition with much bigger players (that actually pay their developers). Although nobody can tell at this point what impact a Remastered Collection will ...

Re: WEEKEND WARRIOR: INTERNATIONALIST SATURDAY

Sounds interesting, could you provide some more detailed information about how this works? I.e. how do players take part in the "mini-tournament", how are the games reported etc. thanks

Re: A Special Announcement from EA

I just want to mention, that EA took down a Sim City 2000 remake by DMCA takedown because it used their dated old assets. So they now want to cash in again and ask the community and on reddit what we think? Are we fine with loosing OpenRA when their lawyers start taking OpenRA down? Do we want loot...

Re: A Special Announcement from EA

Consider not to go for a 3D game but instead create a remastered but still isometric Red Alert for example. Generals 2 would be awesome, but I would rather see a remastered classic title than a fully fledged new title with high end graphics (that might get cancelled in the process). Great to see tha...

Re: TD Aircraft

I strongly feel that we should disable aircraft from auto returning for rearm/repair when they run out of ammo. Often times their direct course back to base sends them through enemy bases/positions and they get shot down. More often then not, I find it a chore to carefully watch my helis and have t...

Re: Mechanics, engineers and scrapping and restoring husks

IMO the best solution would probably be somewhere inbetween... making mcv caps some sort of exception case where they would switch to your own faction upon capture so as to not make tech transfer unique to the Allies. That would keep the fun feature in the game and also mitigate most of the basis f...

The issue has been closed bc it got fixed in the pr referenced at the bottom, that is just how github works. You can still comment on it. I think netnazgul wrote a good comment about it here viewtopic.php?f=82&t=20641#p308733.

Re: Release-20180923 - Discussion

Commandos in Tiberium Dawn need to not prevent you from ordering the rest of your selected unit to attack something. Please fix this. This also happens in RA with unarmed civilians or medics in a group, attack orders turn into move orders. https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/issues/13723 could be rela...

Capable persons (namely lawandorder, james.bong) can you please get in contact? So that we might discuss it further. I'm still interested in creating forum featur...

Re: Dark Colony 1997 [mod]

Do you know if the game was released as a freeware version like the 1st gen c&c games or if there is a free demo version from which the assets can be extracted? People might be able to help when you can link to (not pirated) original files.
