The Past Ain't What It Used To Be... The first Command & Conquer received its last official update on the 21st of June, 1996. Since then, the game has been ported to Windows (as "Gold" version), and re-released in the big "The First Decade" collection pack, but has never received any more bug fixes. The C&C Gold Patch 1.06 project aims to bring this classic into the new millennium, by fixing the old bugs, supporting higher resolutions, and adding new modding and mapping possibilities. It also contains an addon-based language system, allowing anyone to create translation packs for the game.
Just a little extra for map and mod makers... these two colour schemes were created by Kilkakon, and he asked me to include them into the patch. The warm silver is absolutely beautiful :)
At this moment there's no way to use these in multiplayer yet though; they're just for missions.
In the future, I'll probably change this stuff to INI format, so people can more easily add these schemes in mods. But that'll be for after revision 2.
