>Today we are proud to announce that alongside the launch of the Remastered Collection, Electronic Arts will be releasing the TiberianDawn.dll and RedAlert.dll and their corresponding source code under the GPL version 3.0 license. This is a key moment for Electronic Arts, the C&C community, and the gaming industry, as we believe this will be one of the first major RTS franchises to open source their source code under the GPL. It’s worth noting this initiative is the direct result of a collaboration between some of the community council members and our teams at EA. After discussing with the council members, we made the decision to go with the GPL license to ensure compatibility with projects like CnCNet and Open RA. Our goal was to deliver the source code in a way that would be truly beneficial for the community, and we hope this will enable amazing community projects for years to come.store.steampowered.com/newshub/app/1213210/view/2210650455911380147breh

>>508945687maybe openra will take a note or two from this

This looks like the best remaster of this decade

>>508945687I hope Dune 2000 gets ported to itI hope we get Dune vs C&C vs Red Alert mod

bump

>>508945687>no MIT licenseMeh.

>>508949224>Trying to profit off of someone else's work by including antique 1995 code in your game.Mate...

>>508949224stallman won

>>508949563>you can't profit with GPL-licensed softwareYou're retarded, user.

>>508945687Literally don't give a fuck unless RA2 is getting remastered as well.

GENERALS REMAKE WHEN.Best C&C game fight me.

>>508945687I want Tiberian Sun goddammit

>>508945687>blizzard turned to the dark side>ea is saving RTS gamingWhat the fuck happened?If you had told me this 10 years ago I wouldn't have fucking believed it.

>>508949948Faggots are too sensible nowadays for it be remade.

>>508950105I have a working copy with hyperpatch.Want a mega?

>>508950961I think he wants a proper "remaster."

>>508950206I still don't believe it.What are they hiding? What do they gain from this?It feels like they're doing this to prime boomers for a secret upcoming mobileshit version.

>>508951248It's outdated code and increases the trust in the brand.

>>508950105This

>>508951042The original works fine on modern OS thanks to the patch.It even has the shitty live action movies pop up at the right times.What good is a remaster when it can only get worse?

Finanlly I can make the genocide mod I always wanted

>>508951447>increases trust in the brandThat's something they certainly need.But releasing old code is a somewhat poor substitute for all the creative talent they've squandered and all the garbage they've continuously put out since the early 2000's.If the only good they can do is spill old guts for the crows and vultures, that's pathetic.

>>508951248They already released the games as freeware a decade ago and there are open source reimplementations availeable. Officially opening up the games is a real easy pr move for them.Still based tho.

>>508951983This. EA's sins will only be cleansed by the blood of Bioware. What those scumbags did has stunted the development of RPGs for years to come.

>>508951983My point is, releasing part of the source code of the game is only benefical for them.It has no drawbacks and it created buzz around the remake.

>>508951248Probably hired some marketing consultants with half a braind who realized that community involvement actually makes for better products FOR FREE. Valve started doing that with CS 20 years ago.

>>508945687We shifted timelines again. EA is starting a redemption while Bethesda, and Blizzard become pariahs

>>508952495Electronic Arts previously released the entire source code for the original SimCity in 2013 under the (once again) GPL license.donhopkins.com/home/micropolis/

>>508952723>timelinesWhat if everything is cyclical?

>>508952723Great I had to reformat my PC. Don't post that again faggot.

>>508952784what the fuck, did anything come of this?

>>508950716lol retard, the only people offended by the game are (((china))) and they're offended by everything, including this game. EA, now that it's a global force, would never dare offend the chinese money. No one in the US would give a fuck about a game that said the US military was incompetent or bad unless they were some stupid boomer faggot

Imagine living in an age when Blizzard sucks dick and EA is so based

>>508953579Why ? what is wrong with the image , its just a guy eating a donut

So does this mean I won't have to pirate these games to use OpenRA?

>>508954460> its just a guy eating a donutIs that what they're calling it now?Fuck you.

>>508954593They haven't released any assets.

>>508954593no, just gives modders better access to game files for when remastered drops.

>>508954053Yes.hyperlogos.org/page/How-Install-Micropolis-GPL-Simcity-Port-Linux

>>508954593Even if you got the new assets, why would you use OpenRA instead of the remastered versions? OpenRA isn't finished yet, a lot of features still missing.

>>508945687Day 1 buying this even though it's fucking EA. I'm craving for a good macro RTS and this is fucking it.

>>508951447>increases trust in the brandi'd quicker migrate to the moon than trust EA ever again. not after all the chaos theyve done. the many dev companies that were murder in their name. NOT A CHANCE ON EARTH

>>508955207huh

>>508952723Thanks for the virus asshole.

>>508954593Command and Conquer: Red Alert is freeware since years ago.web.archive.org/web/20080831173547/http://www.ea.com/redalert/news-detail.jsp?id=62The files are "RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar" and "RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar".

>>508949754this

>>508955207nice

>>508949754It will be. They're testing the market with this, and I suspect they've already noticed there's sufficient demand for the entire series.

>>508949754I haven't bought any games since maybe 2005. I'd get ra2 in a heartbeat

>>508952723>becomeliterally anyone with an ounce of intelligence has hated bethesda and blizzard for decades, only redditors liked those shitholes

>>508955579This. I'll never spend money on an EA game, and I haven't for the past decade at least. I think the last I bought was Dead Space 2 or something. Never gonna download origin, never gonna give those fuckers money.

>>508960423It's on steam retard

>>508950105If they did, maybe they could finally make playable orca transports and helicopter rotors work

>>508960468And it's still giving EA money dipshit.

>>508945687After the extreme disappointment that was rootkit in Eternal, I really hope this won't be the next.

Remasters and remakes are literally the only things left to look forward to in this garbage clown world. The absolute state of the gayming industry

>>508945687cautiously optimistic because it's EA

>>508954268no, liberals would be offended by making the middle east guys stereotypical terrorists

>>508950105the second worst game in the series next to c&c4

>>508966382I've never seen someone with such a shit opinion before.Kill yourself

Daily reminder that he stole the NOD ring.

>>508967059I think it's the worst, but that's only counting the other old titles that are all comparably brilliant.Newshit doesn't even exist as far as I'm concerned. When someone's fully in the dark side you just as well assume that of them.
