Hello everyone! We'd like to apologize for the silence of 3 months. I believe some of you might have noticed that I've barely posted any news during this time here and I am not proud of it at all. But sometimes, great things demands greater sacrifices. And, with the user of some hacking skills, we are glad to announce that we can now mod C&C: Rivals.

Now, some of you must be wondering... how would that work if most of the game is processed on EA's end? Well... we had to mirror it on our own side, understand the mechanics and write our own server. And that's what we are going to share with you in the next hours!

With the PPM Rivals server, you'll be able to host your own lunatic version of the game and play it as you desire. Bring the units that you want, customize their costs, firepower, hit points, etc... and you can also play with the whole monetization of the game and create new maps. There are, however, many limitations, including new factions, map sizes and among other design choices of the Rivals developers.


And, to get things started, we have created forums where you'll be able to discuss and get your modding  issues sorted, since I do not expect official support into that. In fact, the least the "official support", the better in this case.

Anyway, get ready and start posting and have fun:

- C&C: Rivals Editing Forums
- C&C: Rivals Mapping Discussion
- Philadelphia Tutorials Zone
- C&C Rivals: Map Archive

Key Words: #News #ProjectPerfectMod #PPMForums #CnCRivals #April1stBelieveItOrNot

I understand that Rivals section here might not be very popular, since not everyone can afford to host an online server that handles that game. However, we need to try new paths at PPM since the possibility of new games being moddable will just get more tough.

April fools?

However there *ARE* mods of mobile apps with their own server (hacked to allow infinite "gold", etc.) - I just don't see much point in doing it with Rivals.

Yes, this is an obvious april fools joke.

I do no have the skills or the will to write my own server code for it. I've also downloaded the apk from the game from a random source to understand how assets are coded. It is very easy to open it, since all you need to do is to rename it as zip file and open it.

Most of the files are encrypted/encoded including XML files. I couldn't decompile LUA files with luadec or other known decompilers. The decompile and disassemble process always failed. Models uses a sb3d file format, which I haven't found a program to decode it. Textures uses an sba format, which I've found one program who tries some sort of a brute force to decode it, but it is target to NFS No Limits. I haven't tried it yet with Rivals textures. If these .json files in assets/published/data/minimap are the whole map description (which seems to have enough data to describe the whole map, to be honest), then this is the easiest file type there to understand.

And that's all, folks.

But, will the subforum stay up anyways? :V

Seeing as we currently can't even mod it...

Asset extraction may be one thing but creating our own version seems far off yet. And is there anyone even interested? Its clear EA will try to shut down any clone.
