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 at bringing 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.
A little something for the translators and modders: the prefixes for custom missions are no longer hardcoded in the exe file, but adapt to use the same strings as the multiplayer side selection buttons, meaning they can be changed in the strings file.
This shows the change in the Polish language pack that's currently under development in the forum.
