Currently EA has stated they have no interest in DMCA'ing Open RA, but... this is EA we're talking about. I wouldn't put it past them to suddenly decide Open RA is illegal if their remaster doesn't review or sell as well as anticipated.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Okay, now this is frakking awesome.

And that "Ho-ly-shit! Ho-ly-shit! Ho-ly-shit!" crowd chant when Frank goes nuts with the drum solo in the middle of Brain Freeze... [awesome][awesome][awesome]

Remaster Update and Source Code

An update on the status of the C&C Remaster: The team was able to find most of the original source code for Tib Dawn and Red Alert 1, but not all of it. In order to compensate for what is missing, and to also shore up any issues the original game engine had (of which there were many), they will combine engines and use Petroglyph's own RTS engine known as Glyph X to assist.

I won't jump the gun and state that Petro using their own RTS engine is bad news, but... the last well-polished and rounded RTS they created was Grey Goo. 8-Bit Armies and Forged Battalion were both sup-par RTS titles that were lacking so many features and felt unusually dated, so if that's the engine's capability instead of what was seen with Grey Goo than the project may be in for a bumpy ride.

And well... that's where I'm starting to think it might just be better for the staff to forget about a remaster and just outright remake at least one of the titles - preferably Tib Dawn. Red Alert 1 can come afterwards if the Remake proves successful.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

I agree that doesn't sound very promising.

[up][up][up] the tiberium sons put up their own recording (all instruments recorded individually and mastered in its own way a few days ago;

i've literally been listening to this concert nonstop during work, their version sounds so much better, and it's available as a playlist with the individual songs. they mixed the crowd participation better, too. even the "ho-ly shit!" chanting sound better, if that's your thing.

Yep, I've found this version in the meantime. Honestly lost count of how many times I listened to it and probably will for quite a few times more.

Because it rocks. I really hope Frank includes some remixes in the remaster as bonus tracks.
