  1. Let me doublecheck the settings, because 0.94296847 sounds like a crazy number. Edit: You should have a 2MB allowance for your profile pic. Gifs are naturally rather large, so you might want to use a piece of software like ScreenToGif in order to compress them.
  2. Missing a few options there; like Dawn of War, Halo Wars, Supreme Commander etc. But C&C is there so why would you vote for anything else.

    OWA's question: When I used to work with Andre Arsenault, he once told me a story about when you played him one of his voice lines from Tiberian Sun: Firestorm as he entered a room once, (something about a "cool beverage"?). My question is, what's your favourite piece of obscure dialogue from any C&C game?
  4. Frank Klepacki is a really awesome guy and this was a great read! Cheers!

    How about you try building your own? You'll get way more performance for your money and these days it's really easy to do using PC Part Picker: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ Plus there's a load of tech savvy people here to help you if you get stuck.

    @thedisclaimitory could you please use paragraphs and basic grammar please? Reading your posts isn't a pleasant experience for any of us.
  7. New idea. "the game will now update, which might take some time. In the meantime here's a link to the latest changelog to read while you wait."

    I can look into it. But the idea is that the best answer is the first reply, which serves to help others looking for the same answer.
  9. Just a simple "Your game has been updated, would you like to read the changelog?" on the launcher would probably suffice.
  10. Battlefield V, Two Point Hospital and the final DLC for Hollow Knight! Maybe Red Dead 2 if the multiplayer is fun. I'm really into Sea of Thieves right now which is super emergent. I'd love something like that to scratch that cowboy itch.

    So I've been thinking about this for a while now and whilst we can probably do ranks, deciding what those ranks should be would be tricky; since you can't have different ranks for different forums because that's not how IPB works. It must be global, I've been thinking of a drop down box in the profile settings that will allow you to choose a unit as your favourite and show it off to everyone. That way we can have units from all of the games without leaning a bias towards any game in particular. CNCNZ does something similar by letting you pick your favourite C&c game and displaying it on your profile, so something similar here would be pretty fun to have. We do have a lot of other stuff on our plate right now though.
  12. Nope. The regular testing team will continue to serve all groups.
  13. Hi everyone! Earlier this year we mentioned that we wanted to make some sort of Global Freelancers Initiative to empower members of the community who would like to make content for the games, but don't necessarily want to be part of the staff team. This has mutated slightly to become the W3D Hub Modder's Alliance; a new group that will be comprised of active members that make maps and mods for W3D Hub games! So what's the deal? So what does a member of the Modding Alliance get? Well, Modders get a special usergroup which grants them exclusive access to all test builds on the launcher, a special forum section to discuss the engine and a special Discord channel to chat in. This halfway house between being a regular member and a staff member is great so that we can have a place to collectively help each other out and work on exciting stuff for the community, but it also allows us to train people who are interested about producing content for the engine. How do I become a member of the Modder's Alliance?When we're looking for people to join this new group, we're looking for a number of qualities. We won't be formally accepting applications as such, but we will be paying close attention to what people are doing and making so that we can make the best informed decisions. Ultimately though, these are the basic qualities that we are looking for: Members who are interested and passionate in developing content for the W3D Engine. Members who have submitted several mods to the downloads database or have made maps for the games that are considered to be of a good standard of quality or beyond. Trustworthy members who conduct themselves well on the forum, in Discord and in-game as well as being respected by their peers. If you fulfil some of these qualities, it is very likely that we will approach you to join the Alliance. Is that everything?Well not quite! I'm pleased to announce that our first Modders that have been invited to join the Alliance are Raap, Timeaua, Threve, Zephyrus and Kicken! Congratulations guys! Aside from that, if you have any burning questions or suggestions about any of this, please feel free to PM me (@OWA) about it. Cheers!

  14. Hi everyone, just a quick notice to mention that the version of the IPB forum software that we are using was updated to the latest version 4.3.5 today! The maintenance has now been completed and services are running again as normal, just in case you were wondering about the downtime earlier. Cheers!
