Subject description: It's time for mods to dominate the world... with LAN workarounds!
Reply with quote

An important patch for the C&C Remastered Collection has been released today and that includes LAN play... with the ability to play mods on LAN. With few tricks, and I guess somebody will be able to play these mods with people around the world, heh? But guess what? LAN play is just one of the countless features of this patch. Here's Jim "Jimtern" Vessella's fully detailed post about today's patch:

Quote:
Fellow Command & Conquer fans,

Today we’ll be launching our second major update for the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection.

As I’ve been sharing with you over the past month via our Beta Patch updates, this Patch focuses on the following items:

   LAN Play

   Balance adjustments to address several key issues

   Incorporating community maps as official Quickmatch maps

   Dozens of QoL improvements and bug fixes across the board

   Upcoming Quickmatch leaderboard reset

Below you will find the full list of Patch Notes for this update. Note: the Quickmatch changes will likely go into effect a few hours after the Patch goes live. But before we get too deep into the detailed list, let me provide context on each of the key items in this patch.

LAN Play:

As requested by the community over the course of the project, this update includes our official implementation of LAN Play. LAN Play allows players to enjoy Mod content in multiplayer, and should be an evergreen way to enjoy multiplayer far into the future. We did our best to test this feature amongst the Covid situation during development, along with attempting to get feedback from the community via Beta patches. But given the variety of ways people could play over VPN and with Mods, we expect there still to be some quirks in the system. Please continue to provide feedback so we can make any refinements going forward.

Balance Adjustments:

Over the past several weeks we’ve been collaborating with the community to tackle a few key balance items in the game. To see further context for these adjustments and read the full community discussion, please refer to my previous post here.

Community Maps:

A few weeks ago we announced the initiative of incorporating community made content into the actual game update so they can be officially utilized in Multiplayer and Quickmatch. We have decided to keep the first batch of Community maps as revealed, but have also made a few adjustments of the previous maps based on community feedback. The full details of these maps can be seen in the patch notes below.

Quickmatch Leaderboard Reset:

As mentioned in my previous post, we are getting ready to reset the Quickmatch ladder to get a fresh start on all these Quickmatch changes. This reset will likely happen in the next 48 hours if the patch launch here goes smoothly. In addition, one new feature of this patch is the ability to view the Leaderboard results of previous seasons (which should take a snapshot of the final results of this first season).

However, on this note I wanted to address a key topic with the leaderboard. We’ve seen reports, evidence, and even people admitting about “boosting” their leaderboard rank with alternate accounts. We feel this breaks the ethics of the Quickmatch landscape and undermines the leaderboard system. Being part of the C&C community should be a positive and fair experience for all players. So here’s the deal, we’re going to give a pass on this previous season, but this behavior will not be acceptable after the leaderboard reset. I respectfully ask everyone to please engage in ethical play behavior going forward, and if you are not sure what that means, I think reading our Positive Play Charter is a good place to start.

Mod Compatibility:

I’ll then reiterate this message from our previous Patch Notes. Because this patch includes updates to the TiberianDawn.dll and RedAlert.dll files, it’s likely that some previous mods will no longer be compatible with this updated version of the game. Modders will need to update their mods with the latest code and refresh their mods on the Steam Workshop.

Once a mod has been updated on the Steam Workshop, players will need to follow a few steps to update and reactivate their mods:

   Disable the mod in the Mods Menu

   Unsubscribe from the mod in the in-game Workshop Mods menu

   Quit and restart the game

   Re-subscribe to the mod via the Workshop Mods menu

   Activate the mod and restart the game as prompted

   The updated mod should then work as intended

Players may experience some issues if they try to activate mods which are not updated to the patch version.

Detailed Patch Notes:

With those items in mind, please see below for all the updates made in this patch:

New Features:

   LAN Play has been added to the game, including the ability to play LAN games with Mods enabled and over certain VPN networks. When browsing LAN games, the UI should display which Mods are required to join each game. LAN Play can be accessed directly from the Main Menu.

   Added the ability to change the resource regeneration speed in Skirmish and Multiplayer games. This is now a slider in the Rules section of the game lobby (With value “1” being the legacy default)

   Added a shortcut “Download” button to the Join Game and Lobby screens to quickly download a selected Custom Map by the host. This should make it much easier to grab Custom Maps and try them out. Along with this change, we are adjusting the lobby list so games with Custom Maps should appear alongside all other hosted games.

   Added the following community maps into the official game:

       "Elevation" (TD) by AchromicWhite & Lovehandles

       “Quarry” (TD) by AchromicWhite & Lovehandles

       "Heavy Metal" (TD) by FeRReT666 & Lovehandles

       "Electric Avenue" (TD) by FeRReT666 & Lovehandles

       "Canyon Pursuit" (TD) by AchromicWhite

       "Tournament Arena" (RA) by [UF] freezy

       “Tournament Ore Rift” (RA) by [UF] ^^ZxGanon^^

       "(WHT) Canyon" (RA) by AchromicWhite & FeRReT666

Quality of Life Improvements:

   Balance adjustment - In Tiberian Dawn the APC now has the Repair Facility as a pre-requisite to build, in order to help mitigate the early APC + Engineer rush

   Balance adjustment - The GDI Weapons Factory health has been increased by 30%

   Balance adjustment - The Naval structures have been removed the the victory condition

   Balance adjustment - The Nod Cargo Plane delivery time has been normalized to 5 sec

   Added the ability to Quickload with a Hotkey

   Quicksaving should now work in Custom Missions and Skirmishes with Custom Maps

   The USSR sub-faction price discount should now display properly in tooltips

   Improved the Harvester logic so it will more reliably collect Gems in the adjacent cell

   Added a flash back to the Nuke explosion in both games

   The Stop and Guard hotkeys can now be held down

   Made it so the “Insufficient Funds” dialog will no longer play if you’re not building anything

   Increased the priority of the “MAD Tank Deploying” voice over so it can be immediately heard

   Made a slight adjustment to how the enemy Airstrike targets in Nod Missions. The A10s should now focus on a single-target instead of splitting to multiple targets. This was a tough issue to track down and still looking for player feedback on how it feels in this new patch.

   Harvesters should now properly respond to a docking queue and override if a manual docking command is given

   Improved the readability of the text on the score screen in Tiberian Dawn

   Updated the Radar visuals for when its being jammed by a Radar Jammer or Tesla Tank

   Enabled the Hell March and Act on Instinct Achievements to be unlocked via the Main Menu Jukebox

   Added a download window when subscribing Mods via the in-game Mods browser

And, as Jim said, every patch like this one that alters the DLL files makes old mods incompatible. Pay attention the instructions above once newer versions of your favourite mods get released. For those who create those mods, EA has already committed the changes. Good luck when merging them with your stuff. If you have any doubts on how to use GIT to do that, check this amazing tutorial.
