C&C3 NE CCP - Compatibility Guide - Introduction
Thanks to the compilation methods used in "C&C3 NE", You can enjoy the new feature OmegaCam/OmegaGUI or both on your favorite mod, using the instructions we offer below.
Unfortunately the level of compatibility, will depend on the Mod that you want to use.
It is not possible to combine the new models 3d of sky, music and other assets, which is "tread" the original files of the other mod.
This is why we have created a new C&C3 NE CCP (Compatibility Core Patch), with which you can merge the new camera system ( Whith 4 different animated skies and 30 new maps) and the three new HUDs (Ypsilom, Omega and Delta), with most of the mods out there today.
It should be noted that this new kernel is Standalone and does not need the full version of the NE CNC3 to function.
You will need:
* C&C3 NE Compatibility Core... Here
* A viewer and editor for .BIG files. E.g. Finalbig ( Although this will not always be necessary, it is recommended to have )... Here
* Text editor (just Windows Notepad or Notepad++).
Steps to follow
Create a backup of your favorite MOD. (This is for safety purposes only)
Copy the CNC3 NE files in the same folder of your favorite mod, rather it be the C&C3 Mods directory or where-ever you choose to launch it from.
Use the text editor to open the ".Skudef" of your favorite mod.
Within the file "SKUDEF" of your favorite mod , you should add only one
of the following lines and save:
"To load the Delta interface and OmegaCam".
"To load the interface Omega and OmegaCam"
"To load the interface Ypsilon and OmegaCam"
"To load only Omega Cam and maps, without new interface"
Run your mod favorite, from the panel of mods, from a shortcut or through the method that you like.
Some MODs have their own "Gamedata.ini" file. For greater compatibility with the new camera system, you need to remove this from the file .BIG (for this use Finalbig, available above)
0- Create a backup of your favorite mod
1- Open the file "BIG" of your favorite mod with Finalbig
2- Search and select the file "gamedata.ini". Go to "Edit/Delete file"
3- Go to "File/Quick save".
If your want to enjoy the new menus and new cursors, in your favorite mod, you should also download the full version of C&C NE and perform the guide with the files "DELTA_1.0.big, YPSILON_1.0.big and OMEGA_1.0.big" located in the folder:
NOTE: The file "CORE_1.0.big" (OmegaCam) of the full version of CNC NE is not compatible with other MODS. Use the file (CORE_1.0.big) provided in this guide.
NOTE 2: If your favorite mod has a file "Video.ini", new videos of C&C3 NE full version will not see. To fix this you must delete this file "Video.ini" in the same way that you deleted the file "Gamedata.ini"
I hope to receive your help in the task of completing this list
