50 EA games soon to lose support for multiplayer online.


EA have not found any alternative to the dying Gamespy service and a large number of games thus lose multiplayer support.
Gamespy has long been a household name for gamers, as numerous games, both PC and console, had multiplayer modes built on servers.
2014 marks the notoriously late for Gamespy, which also means that hundreds of games are in danger of losing support for gaming on-line.

Many developers and publishers, including Activision, Rockstar and SEGA has announced that they are working to find alternative solutions for games that use the Gamespy servers. Similar messages came from EA, which over the years have used Gamespy for many titles, but now the company has announced that they choose to flappers support in their Gamespy games.


Technical challenges and not least the fact that most of the games that use Gamespy start pulling on the oars, located behind EA's decision to allow multiplayer support across 50 titles die out. A variety of titles, such as F1 2002, EA Sports 06 to PC or Fifa Soccer 08-10 for the Nintendo DS, has hardly many active players, but the list also contains relatively popular games like Battlefield 2, Crysis 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.


PC games constitute a large part of the list, but Nintendo consoles are also strongly represented. Nintendo has not gone back on its decision to allow the many DS and Wii titles that use Gamespy lose multiplayer functionality, and EA games are no exception.

Popular titles loosing online multiplayer 30th of June 2014.

There is no way that this is a true C&C. Firstly, the building interface. It's copied from other popular RTS games like Starcraft and such. Yes they were good things to remember and instead of getting the sidebars you get in the previous C&Cs, you have to take your eyes off the action and click on the building. Secondly, the cutscenes are CGI animated instead of using RWMP(Real-World Motion Pictures). And thirdly, **** is ****** up with the promotion thing. Why bother to do all that rubbish upgrading? By the time you get to the last upgrades, game's over man.

Actually this game requires a ton more skill than RA3 for example while beeing far less spammy than Star craft. Only thing i dont like is the lack of overview due to low zoom level. And btw: Dozers >>> MCV build system. And wth imagine someone using a MOAB after 2 minutes of gaming luls

Well, played some 200 RA3 battles online (but only 2vs2), and I can say that "this game requires a ton more skill than RA3" is a little exaggeration. O.o

Also, sometimes one needed to play 1vs2... that was crazy. ^^ Also 2vs 1 skilled player was extremely challenging. So.

Generals and RA3, each of them requires a good deal of skill, but they are a lot different...

As for cutscenes. They're cute (especially short unit/animated ones), unfortunately, Generals doesn't have any of them, so it isn't an improvement.

You'd like to have no upgrades?! You're kidding. Proper upgrades were something what older C&C lacked. = (

It's a decent game, but it most definitely does NOT deserve the words "Command & Conquer" in the title. I'll explain.
The heart of every C&C game is its interface. Unlike other real-time strategy games, it allows you to build units even when no building is selected. For example, you are assaulting an enemy base and are suddenly struck by the thought that the enemy might launch a counterattack. Instead of going all the way back to the base and queuing units, you simply do so in the sidebar, without taking your eye away from the action. This, however, is not the case with Generals.
The game plays much more like Warcraft than C&C. The interface is a dead giveaway. Instead of a sidebar, you get the traditional command menu at the bottom of the screen. As a result, units are built by clicking buildings and selecting them from a list.
So in conclusion, I'd only like to point out again that this is in no way a Command & Conquer game. The Command & Conquer in the title is simply EA's move to cash in on the name, since Westwood Studios was then already disbanded (Yuri's Revenge was their final game).

hey man , i totally disagree with your statement about generals not being a C&C game.
All you do is select a building hold down ctrl and number it with a command key like 1 for eg.
then if you are miles away from your base, and you suddenly want to order 9 tanks you can do it.
just push 1 and order those tanks with out leaving the combat you are involved with.
double pressing 1 will speed you back to your base.
The system generals uses allows you to build massive exciting base,s very very quickly during epic 2 player games.
10 dozers can quickly have you pumping out troops and tanks from mulitple factorys towards your enemy like army ants.
Its a better system a faster and greater system with more potential for epic awsomeness :)

-tga files are picture files, so most photo editing programs should open it, photoshop certanly can, (i tried it)
-m3d can be opend by 3d skin programs like Maya, but this is shareware and costs a lot
-bik files are the intro videos of a level and shouldnt be changed if you're not good in video editing but if you absolutely want to do it
here is a bik player
Radgametools.com
-sfv if im not wrong are flash videos and can be opened with adobe flash
-scb is a script file use for the interaction in the game it can be opened with worldbuild, which should be on the cd of c&c generals
-asi files are not known by me, so i cannot help you with that
-A flt file is a file that contains floating point data and shouldn't be messed with!!!
-lcf are also script files, but i dont know how to open it, i guess notepad should work
- fsc are again script files and can be opened with this program Practicalscriptwriter.co.uk

well i hope i helped you and i also hope we see a mod of you soon =)))
