lawnm0wer Oct 5 2012 replied:

some maps do not support the AI yet if your using the map pack AND what version have you got? (AI building script not fixed yet for some maps, try patching it with 1.72)
If that doesnt work either
1:your doing it wrong
2:your really doing it wrong
provide more detail

nope :/ but some new thing which are neat :D
I wish the SWR team could have a larger veriety of difficulty
setting such as gurilla rush or steam roller or even turtle style
like in CC tiberium 3 NOT Twilight (biggest ******* disaster EVER made by EA :) "designed to ruin your dreames"

Tekkenmover Oct 5 2012 says:

Very nicely made mod, but I got to say, I'm not a fan of the balance with the artillery type units, aswell the anti air defence units, simply the range is massive, aswell the damage they do. The defence structures really have no use in this game, thanks to how useless they are to do damage, HP and range.

It's a nice mod, and nice work, but the balance is just way off to my taste. Just wanted to point it out ^^

lawnm0wer Oct 5 2012 replied:

Well treat this as an Alpha mod cause its still to early to do nerffing and buffing due to the fact that there are going to be more units and structures (ECA) to be released in the future.
however if some units are way put of proportion then the SWR team does change it BUT i agree with some of the things such as GRAD nerf (but got nerffed to much) the anti air UNITS are realistical in damage wise but range wise too long

The-Light Oct 9 2012 says:

ROTR seems to crash about 20-30 minutes after game start on most maps.

The AI does seem to work normally, maybe there's some script issue? I noticed the GLA mobile command truck to continuously set-up and become mobile again.

releasecrashinfo.txt gives the usual write acces error.
ZH version: The First Decade, using an self made mdx file as dvd, cause my dvd is almost broken( played it too oft :P ), NOT using NOCD patch, that seems to only worsen the crashing.
ZH uses about 480mb of ram when crashing, which it does since it starts really.
Windows version: Win 7 Pro 64bit with 5.5 GB available system ram.

oh man, i REALLY want to get this mod, but my relentless shockwave mod i want to delete wont let me. i had a trojan virus with the shockwave mod, so i think that could be the reason why. i use c&c the first decade, and im on a pc. if i need to provide more information, then i wont mind to. my SW mod also crashes whenever i try to play a challenge game. PLEASE HELP!!!
