How it all started.

This mod actually started sometime 2005 as an idea in the mind of the someone you all mostly know as The Hunter alto the idea never gotten any form until early 2006 were I made the very first model for the mod and started working on organizing the mod and planning things by myself.
The mod itself is based of an old PC strategy game known as WarGames which was made by a game studio which was formerly known as Interactive Studios.
Alto the game was absolutely amazing and very ahead of it's time when it was released it never got the attention which it deserved (or at least not in my opinion) as many features of the game were seen in other RTS games way later and some I have yet to see in other RTS games.

The game.

The game itself is about the N.O.R.A.D. (North American Aerospace Defense Command) and the W.O.P.R. (War Operations Plan Response).
The N.O.R.A.D. represents the human side of the game which must protect humanity from total annihilation by the W.O.P.R.
The W.O.P.R. side is a race controlled by a big super computer and their weapons are state of the art high tech weaponry.
The W.O.P.R. mainframe wants to prevent war in the world by eliminating humanity and only the N.O.R.A.D. is capable of stopping the W.O.P.R. advance.

Anyway that's it for history about the game and the mod. With this project we want all gamers in the world to get a second chance to experience this game on a better capable 3D engine with all features from the original game restored which has lead us to create this mod. We all hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did making it.

Fellow fellow modders, community members and fans.This mod projects was originaly released durring a time when Windows XP was the dominant operating system.Because of this it caused abit of a problem once windows Vista, 7 and 8 came around the corner and broke much of the original launching software which is required to play the mod.

The re-release of this projects is there for not realy an update to the projects themselfs but for those users who had trouble getting the mods to work under newer versions of windows should now find it easier to play this mod.

Hope you all enjoy.

I believe this mod has been put on the back burner until SW and ROTR get some significant progress.

1. this mod is beta and there for only has one side
2. Spamming superweapons and generals powers to kill your enemy is something you can play ZH for if you like that so much.
3.Mole bombs and stealth bomber are technicly superweapons specialy the mole bomb since once it's fired there is no stopping it.

Your supposed to run out and capture the computer centers with your hackers. The Supply docks are only temporary :).

The sounds are right from the older game too, so theres not much we can do about it.

Very funny mod! :D
Only two problems:
The ammount of cash is too low for such prices. You can edit supply docks to provide more cash =)
And the quality of unit speech sounds is low.
Otherwise this is an amazing mod!
Keep it up, wanna play final release one day :beer:
