Hi again!

For who not visit the forum there will be posted the 4º report of the next C&C:Reloaded release (usually I post them in the Development forum). It will be a bit like a small resum of the other reports.

As I said in previous reports it will be launched as version 1.0 instead of "v0.99 beta X" (X = number) because is very stable than the last public release, it will not be backward compatible (I removed the cloned power plants AI hack for GDI and Nod from the code & re-designed AI scripts), and will use the future **Ares v0.2 as core of the mod development.

AI is "almost" done, I haven't included (yet) the Allied/Nod spy missions because I was more focused in improving/observing how AI worked in-game but spy missions can be recycled from the previous release so this part can be considered finished.

I have tested and implemented all the features that will have the next release (see changelog) and the only task left is fixing TS graphics that I haven't done in the last public release. In this case I'm working to finish all the Nod graphics (main standard/semi-destroyed image, animations, build up) that I left without fixing and I'll fix the Civilian buildings that exist in TS maps.
These are examples of what I mean "fixing bad pixels" (due to the resize of TS buildings to the RA2 size, aprox. a ~20% bigger, I don't remember the exact percentage):

Because fix bad pixels is a slow & tired process to me there will be other TS graphics that probably will not be worked until next mod releases like the TS terrain and any possible image that I forgot to fix in previous releases.

I'm still not decided about if I re-design the C&C:R mod manager, making it more intuitive & removing the updates tab due to the current internet conection speeds (5 years since the last release... now we have better conection speeds & the mod size has been reduced thanks to **Ares) or if I use the Launch Base tool. I'll wait to the end to see how will envolve this tool before I do the final selection.

I hadn't contact in these months of my french traslator of the mod so I'll release C&C:R v1.0 when it is done and if the future C&CBoy returns then the french edition will be published :-)

As final note, I don't know when will be the final release date due to the TS graphics (if I'm not wrong, in this moment I'm counting 12 build ups & 4 animations to be fixed the bad pixels). So in a future report I could indicate when will be published this release and what I'll do for the mod manager.
Nothing more to say... happy new year 2011! :)


** Ares = Is a Yuri's Revenge expansion DLL, the next generation of binary-based Command & Conquer modding that fix bugs from the original RA2:YR engine and expand it with new features that can be used for enrich our mods, totally transparent for the gamer.

Very nice work, I'm really glad that you're still working on this for such a long time!

Do you need a german translation? I think I could do it if there's a need.

Since Ares 0.2 isn't released & the new release needs it & in this month I'm a bit busy:
- Detected a big bug (& fixed) in Stolen techs logic that made the logic un-usable.
- "Playing" with Spy logic with legacy AI scripts from C&C:R 0.99b2.
- Reducing the number of deployed AI advanced defenses to increase the number of offensive attacks etc...
- Small fixed details.

In resum: low activity but hopefully I fixed big bugs that I never noticed that will not appear in the next release. Unfortunatelly I don't see the sufficient cuantity of changes to do another news except for the release date :S
