Command & Conquer (a.k.a. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn or simply C&C/C&C1; the game is also often unofficially called Command & Conquer 64 for the Nintendo 64 port) is a 1995 real-time strategy video game produced by Westwood Studios for MS-DOS and released internationally by Virgin Interactive. It was the first of twelve games to date to be released under the title Command & Conquer; six subsequent titles having since continued the story set as sequels with one acting as a prequel, along with the production of several spin-off games. Met with universal acclaim by consumers and critics, Command & Conquer was released for seven separate platforms along with becoming the initiator of the Command & Conquer franchise, and today generally is considered as the title which originally defined and popularized the modern real-time strategy genre.

We are pleased to announce the second playtest on the road to our next stable release. We have now entered the feature freeze phase, which means that we have stopped adding new features and instead focus on fixing any bugs that you might find. That means that we need your help with testing, testing, and some more testing! Please report any bugs or problems you encounter on our bug tracker. Thank you for helping to improve OpenRA!

We are happy to announce that we have finally addressed a few long-standing performance issues that caused significant lag spikes in the mid to late game. As part of this work, the AI has become a lot smarter about base building, uses support powers more reliably, and harvesters are less likely to become stuck.

Music playback has received quite a lot of changes. Map authors now have much greater control over music, including the ability to specify default (starting) music as well as custom victory and defeat tracks.

Other changes include:

  • Spies in the Red Alert mod have received a major overhaul, making them much more useful.
  • Paratroopers can now be selected and given orders before they land.
  • Two new single-player missions have been added, Soviets 04a and 04b.
  • Single-player missions have been polished, and Allies 05 has received a new ultra-hard difficulty.
  • Mission replays can again be viewed through the replay browser.
  • A warning message is now given when a server admin selects a map with custom rules.
  • Range circles are now visible to allied players and spectators.
  • Players can now hide the in-game UI (using a hotkey, bound to Ctrl+Shift+H by default).
  • We now support installing game content from The First Decade DVD.

Of interest for modders and mappers will be the addition of new Lua API functions. Disguising spies, capturing or infiltrating units and buildings using scripting is now possible. Other newly available functions can be used to play arbitrary sound files, flash the screen, and control the new palette effect trait.

Of course we did not only add new things, but also fixed bugs and annoyances. Here’s a small sample:

  • A number of crashes have been resolved.
  • The score screen can now be closed to have a look at the battlefield after the match.
  • The ‘Options’ button will no longer blink without reason in skirmish maps.
  • The duration bar on chronoshifted units in the Red Alert mod is no longer visible to enemy players.
  • The aircraft and helicopter cruise altitude in the Red Alert mod has been increased again.
  • The unit duplication crate bonus has been removed from the Tiberian Dawn mod.

For all the gritty details check out the full changelog.

Grab the installer for this playtest from our download page and give it a try!

Custom map rule warning

The game will warn players in the lobby when the host selects a map with custom rules. This should help combat the small number of dishonest players who adjusted rules to their advantage.

Veteran unit production after infiltration

Infiltrating an enemy production building with a spy will let you build veteran units.

Observer range circles and hidden gui

Allied players and spectators can now see the range circles from units and buildings.

New Lua API functions can be used to simulate simple weather effects.

Work continues on our Tiberian Sun mod which still isn’t ready for release. Check out these clips from a recorded developer test game!

@airborneSn1p3r, you can get Skirmish, just go into Network and host a LAN game, then just click on the bots option and start the game.
If you didnt understand that...sorry rofl, but mess with the Network mode.
I've done it before.

It is impossible to enable skirmish with AI in C&C1, that would mean hacking in an AI. And that's impossible.

This game was released before "skirmish" even existed ;)
