C&C Generals Retail v1.04 Patch:

This patch will update C&C Generals to version 1.4, and apply the following changes:

- Changed the rules for disconnections. Now, only the players who disconnect from the game or physically lose their connection to the Internet are charged with a disconnect.
- Added a new three-minute rule on Generals online. Now, online matches need to be played for over three minutes in order to record a win, loss, or disconnect. This is to discourage players from artificially bolstering their rank and stats through a dummy account.
- Fixed occurrences of the same game appearing multiple times in the lobby. Generals now actively removes duplicate games in order to make finding and joining matches easier.
- All the chat rooms in the custom match lobby now have their own dedicated list of active games.
- Fixed improper disconnections from the game lobby. You should no longer see the "Lost connection to Generals online" error when your connection is still active.
- Fixed language filter stability.
- Added a new command line for mod developers that lets Generals run user-created content. Simply add the "-mod" command line after the generals.exe target path, followed by the name of any user-created .big file or user-created directory. The correct path would like this: "C:Program FilesEA GamesCommand and Conquer Generalsgenerals.exe" -mod MyGeneralsMod.big. All user-created content must be placed in the "Command and Conquer Generals Data" folder within your "c:Documents and Settings" directory.
- Fixed the missing artwork for the "random private" rank in Generals online.
- Fixed the rank hack where some players appear to have a higher rank than they should.
- Increased the allowed time for game to negotiate matching between players.
- Fixed some instances of the "serious error" crash.
- Added a new 4 player Multiplayer Map: Rogue Agent
- Implemented the following balance changes:
• Tunnel Network build speed increased from 5 seconds to 20 seconds.
• Marauder hit points increased from 430 to 490.
• Stealth Fighter hit points increased from 120 to 140.
• Explosion damage done by Chinese Nuke Tanks when they are destroyed is reduced from 25 to 10.
• Nuke Cannon changed so it moves the same speed when damaged, not faster.
• Aurora speed increased from 90 to 120 after it drops its bomb. Damaged speed increased from 60 to 120.

You People are morons that diss EA and this game. Personally I think that this is a very good game and the patch does balance out the sides better. Thank you Ea for bringing us this game and thanks to all the developers. To those who dis Ea you guys/girls need to grow up.

Well that's true about th money part. But... does any one remember TA? even thought the graphix are older the game itself was better..More unit;s to start with! Heres a little extraction from another forum:"I blame EA for many of 2days shoddy games, even though Unreal is owned by another company. EA is a perfect example of lazy ass money grabbing slackers ripping us off and setting a bad example to other companys.C&C Generals! Aw MY Gawd! I was pissed to see how little I had to build! RA2 sh*tes all over it! Westwood did not put a "proudly presents" any where! I'm not suprised either, who would be proud of this!? EA pushed the deadline forward and f***ed Westwood over (sorry, I just got it 2day, 6th March)!Makes me sik...Go on, have a b**h!"This guy wrote:Hey, whats wrong with C&C? Besides getting connection error from time to time i do enjoy that game...what you don't like about it?Then He Replied:Ok what I don’t like about "C&C Generals"1) Bad intro2) An example of lack units would be American get 2 base defense guns and China + GLA get one each! More on the units, China had jack all, not enough of any units!3) Units go right into each other +weak AI script4) Controversial, an example would be GLA units when u select the builder he says "can I have any shoes". Attacks on America think its too soon for mass terrorism on America (recent events). GLA kill their own people, due to recent events it seems like a bad idea. Again enough of this pro American stuff (thanks to Bush America is not on good terms with many people), lets try an be a bit more universal.5) Very Weak Story line6) Campaigns were boring and short7) No money replenishment8) Dollars? Since when did Chine use dollars? Needs credits9) No sea units to build!!!!10) Money takes ages to come in! GARGGH!The only thing about this is the Engine is good and has allot of potential, obviously it needed allot of work.I’m sur

....leaving off from last post! (starts below)I’m sure there’s more I can think of but all I can think of..(P.S I know this is Unreal 2 forum, but this in way shows an example of half-assed game planning/devlopment).I blame executives!And there u have it! I personaly feel people have a right to blame EA! Remember sims online?! It was a chat room! A FECKING CHAT ROOM! And it took this long to come out? what were they doing all that time? Jerking off a rent-a-horse? I think so! BF1942! Ahem, have u heard of operation flashpoint? BF1942 is a lame, boring, cut down version of OFP! I could keep going on here but I feel I have made my point in saying EA suck!Oh P.S every C&C had a flashy install!! This one didn't!

the game is not too bad. But it does suck on many levels. It by no way beats RA2, except on one point. TCP/IP. Finally they get something right. Next all they have to do is create a dedicated server option.Not everyone that plays the game plays online. Some of us like to stick to lans and a Dedicated server will make things run so much better.Also, too those people that say don't blame EA, what? do you work for them???? Besides its their own fault if people have a go about the quality of thier products... thier own motto asks peope to : "Challenge Everything"You can't throw that out there and then ask people just to blindly buy/play your game without complaining.

Usually its f**kers posting shit to boost there egos for their superiority complexs.sorry I had to say it
