Posted by on



Hello everybody, it's been a long time. Nearly two years have passed since the last major release for Twisted Insurrection. The long wait was only made worse by our unintentional lack of communication. In the past few years, our team has slowly grown thinner, leaving us with only a few active but strongly dedicated members. Most other contributors are busy with real life or other projects, so development has been slower than before.

That said, TI is very much still being worked on. It's taken time, but we're finally releasing that you've all been waiting for - version 0.8, or as we like to call it, the Invasion Update.

We hope that this new release is proof of our dedication to TI's continued development. In fact, our plan is to release smaller, more frequent updates from now on. We would also like to keep the public better updated on what is happening with TI's development from now on.

Without further ado, let's have a look at what this version has to offer, shall we?

New features in version 0.8

The complete changelog can be found here, be sure to check it out!

Twisted Insurrection 0.8


Stability Fixes

TI has been known for crashes and connection errors during multiplayer matches, which can be frustrating to anyone trying to play online. Version 0.8 has hundreds of changes and fixes aimed at making the game more stable and allow players to enjoy the game without interruptions. Additionally, these changes have made the next feature viable to implement.

Co-Op Mode

TI now has a fully working Co-Op mode along with a new mission to play! This new mode is intended to have additional missions in the future, including a campaign which will provide more insight into the storyline, in particular, the Forsaken. Special thanks to Rampastring and the DTA mod, who helped immensely in making this happen.

New Buildings, Units, and Terrain Props

Many new assets have been included in the latest build including:

  • Globotech (tech faction) now have their own Refinery, Silos and a new Gun Drone
  • The Forsaken (tech faction) now have their own artillery, the Mistfire
  • Sons of Kane (campaign faction) get both an Attack Buggy and Bike (currently crate goodies)
  • UN (campaign faction) receive a new Light Tank and TOW Humvee
  • Twisted Dawn era Nod gains the Chemical Warrior, both factions get a Recovery Vehicle
  • Infested trees, Blossom trees and tiberium-based megaflora
  • Numerous map props for the upcoming campaign

And more.

Rebalanced Factions

Many units in TI were often unused for standard play due to having a very niche nature or by being too underpowered. Overhauled units include:

  • GDI Siege Trooper
  • GDI Phalanx Railgun
  • Nod Cleaver Drone
  • Nod Hammerhead
  • Nod Stinger Mobile SAM

Just to mention a few.

New Campaign Missions

The TI story is undergoing work to make the storyline fit together better. GDI mission 1 has been updated to a new version in which the UN will play a larger role in GDI's collapse and later subsequent rebirth. Additionally, the Twisted Dawn Missions 1 & 2 have been amalgamated into a larger mission as both missions canonically take place on the same map and are relatively short.

5 New Multiplayer Maps

New Multiplayer Maps Five new multiplayer maps are included in the new version. In addition, many existing maps have received updates.

  • [2] Angel Bay
  • [2] Resurrection
  • [2] Forsaken Canyon
  • [4] Catastrophe Park
  • [8] Fort Sheppard

1 Co-Op Map

  • [2] Operation: Friendly Fire

8 New Music Tracks

0.8 soundtrack includes six new tracks by Swirekster and a guest track by Stringstorm.

  • Pyrotek
  • Bogeyman
  • Incandela
  • No Mercy
  • Lines in the Sand
  • To Shreds
  • Lullaby
  • Lunar Grin

New Bonus Mission

'Operation: Friendly Fire' is a parody mission of the "Raid Area 51 - They can't stop us all!" event, featuring the soundtrack "It's Happening" by Montlygon. Disclaimer: The TI Team by no means encourages the actual event set for September 20th 2019. We strongly discourage any attempts to approach the facility as it is an active airforce base.

All this and more in the latest build.

Project W.I.R.E.S.

Last but certainly not least, we have another present, something quite different. Sivsarcast, a blogger, writer, and an active member in our community, has been developing a grand novel based on the Twisted Insurrection storyline. This novel, titled Project W.I.R.E.S., follows the events of the game's singleplayer campaign, featuring familiar characters and introducing new ones. Here's an excerpt from the intro:

Tiberium. Its emerald glow alluring as it is deadly. Its arrival shook the world to the core, sparking what would be known as the First Tiberium War. The Earth was split between the Global Defense Initiative(GDI), who sought to contain Tiberium, and the Brotherhood of Nod, who embraced Tiberium as their salvation.
Three years of bloodshed have eroded the eagle’s talons, while the scorpions continued to crawl out of the woodwork. The completion of the Orbital Ion Cannon would be the eagle’s saving grace, a tool to end the war. That is, until the unthinkable happened.


Read the novel here

Note: Project W.I.R.E.S. is based on the pre-version 0.8 storyline. Most of the story's events will therefore be either spin-offs or non-canon.

Be sure to also check out Siv's blog, including the popular series Tiberium Tuesdays.

I updated to the latest version, but now it won't start anymore. When I select a mission/campaign, the screen goes black for a few seconds, then kicks me back to the desktop and the launcher pops back up.

Likely unrelated: The icon for my shortcut broke as "TI_Launcher" from which it got the icon, no longer exists.

Edit:
I tried directly downloading the files and extracting them into a new folder, but despite running in administrator mode, the game still doesn't start.

The old 0.7.8 version still appears to work however.

Hi Erastus, i encounter a problem when playing Nod mission 11: Mechanical Man in patch 0.8. The game crash and an error message pop up saying TI has encountered internal error when i get close to EMP cannon in the main GDI base. If i remember you have to stop the cyborg commando after that and i think there is problem with the trigger or something else. Hope you can look into this and thank you for the new patch!

No problem. I also found out that the same issue is happening with GDI mission 5 when you complete the main objective and maybe with other missions too but i cant tell which one since the problem is keeping me from playing further. I hope TI team can fix this soon and thanks again!

just curious, is there a way to implement RA2 real attack-move (from patch 1.006, in 1.00 it worked pretty much like the "alt-ctr" from original tib sun, some kind of self defense move) in this game? or any other way to have a functional attack-move?

I don't care about americans , puppet of israel.
i will have to double think if i wanna play the mod.
once its amriceansegfgtrf included, it stiiinks big time!
and yeah mission from americans and first thing they do is fire into civilians.
all these kids here saying it's cool don't have opinion on it and if they do it's far from reality i don't think US flag has a place in this mod, or in
tiberium lineage as a whole.

Hey rejdexious, First of all its' just a game secondly, we're not on this website to hear your rant about anti- American/Israel Its kind of hard not to shoot at civilians when an enemy hides among them!!! You don't see any of the other fans calling out the rest of the middle east If its not about the games Keep you opinions to your self and Thirdly....Jesus Loves You!!!!

Rejdexious....Is that your best comeback? really XD!!! These "Americans" work hard to bring you entertainment and it's something that EA fails to provide so its up to "American" C and C fans to do that. When that man that developed the first Tetris game he developed it in a Soviet computer lab and never saw a dime of that money because of Communist Russia revoked all of his rights, and BTW Jesus is our Savior.

rejdexious

you didn't answer my first question though...
if you never heard of 2 and half man, ok,
what about FRIENDS , do you think it's good to watch?
an to your comment , it's not that they are "Americans"
countries are divide and conquer in practice we're all the same in that manner,
but those who don't understand and yes especially americans think they are better then the rest of the world, they are militaristic,
invasive nation spreading it's moral decadence in the whole world.
Through TV,radio,news,politics etc. i am not saying it's just america of course but in my country if i look at tv program for the day at least 90% its usa crap(literaly).
I have nothing personal against you as american, as you surely know "love your enemy" (and my enemy is everybody who says jesus is not a god and saviour and holiest of holiest and the best gift giver, the one and only, master of all that is, the greatest driver, the most precise pinpointer,(that doesn't mean kill my enemy))
Do you have idea how many people get misguided each day deeper and deeper and further and further away from jesus just from all world propaganda?(it could be this game,this A51 mission concretely who knows) Do you think it's easy see your own family not just not believing in jesus, but saying god isn't real and saying ugly things about him actually,living a complete lie? all i try to ever say with my words is get people closer to him. whether it looks like it or not.i don't care.
Who was against jesus the most back in the day?
Who owns the most cash valueable things and corporations today?
Why would you think it's past that point and they are not against Him to this day, he is still the saviour isn't he?
Today gives them much more opportunities to cover themselves behind a medium and lie.
to Hide their ugliness behind a "beautiful" face on tv and so on.
You don't go after things that are just nice to look at, please.
yeah... so go ahead down vote me but i am past that point when i care what people say or think of me, i don't do this for them.

That's True too. I am at fault. Its not every day you here someone else say that about how God and Jesus are being hid from us more and every day. I think about that Often. Oh I don't have Cable so I don't watch Two and a Half Men or Friends.
and I don't Stream anything ,but I have Tons of Stuff on DVD

i got rid of all these unnecessities few days back actually, tons of dvds and magazines don't regret a BIT. tore down diablo 2 wallpaper from the doors few years back, every little thingie that could even remotely remind me of anything that is not of god had to go...even silly stuff that i had nostalgic feel for, like my old toys, it's temporary and has no place for solid everlasting foundations.
I don't watch no tv and don't read no news,don't have phone or facebook. if there is something i think i need to know i ask him. that's it, whether i get answered or not.
but actually it seems like things just happen and are explained later each time so i don't ask that many question lately, it will all be answered when the best sometime is.

Let me tell you that my journey didn't start as a naive christian
or muslim or religious person at all. quite the opposite actually
i wanted to "know" more so i picked up books , watched W. cooper,bonnaci,p.hall, even touched crowley(but he never was my cup of tea)blavatsky,etc.
i wrote poems of things i didn't know, i was just writing and then studying and saw all what i wrote was actually somewhere mentioned so i am positive on supernatural source of ideas. mind you i am not for lovely poems where every is almost the same ,im more of a classical person so i was aware of rhytm,wording,counting,toning,even hiding stuff to the poems so people would eventually buy it.(its all burned,i burned it personally).
i went into astrology,cards, you know philosophy as a whole. But the point i'd like to stretch here is , it's all the same, it's all lies.
not that it's not there, but it's meaningless,pointless.
the worst part was that everything was clicking, everything felt right into it's place, like a puzzle with difficulty of 10 pieces(really)
dots were connecting like crazy.and i think thats whats the most of the worlds population is after.the easy way.
there was nothing like sorrow,pain or regrets actually because i was the one who was setting it to what i wanted it to be.I still do that but now i do it with quit smoking,drinking(i was heavy smoker and heavy drinker,even weed),but looking at it back, i now have pain sorrow and regret and it's muuch better.
i went to this journey from a point where i was not thinking of service as going to church on sunday so to speak.
part of this studying was the hypocricy of religion.all that study was pointless because i experienced the hypocrisy on my own.
i experienced it last week.
a catholic priest was performing a personal service with no one in the church behind closed see-through glass doors. just for himself.
i was in a need and i was knocking on the glass doors and he was pretending like he doesn't hear me continuing his ritual.
how is that a service to god? i was in need , real service would be to open the door and ask what i need.
It's all a part of authority that is definitely not of jesus,
police army religion corporations you name it.
i am pretty sure it's all part of the biggest gag of all times, concealing god.
but that raises the most important point of all!
what would be the point for concealment if there was nothing at stake?

I still have so many flaws that i am sure never in my lifetime i could get rid of them not after million years. i sometimes get mad at poeple for disrespecting god, because what i really don't like, like reaally,is taking his name in vain, in my language we do that too we say "jesus" when something goes wrong instead of curse word(that's so terrible just thinking about it)...
I think people say the name instead of curse word, because his name is glorified in heaven, and devil don't want it here.

Awesome!!! I also Thought of that too and I'm glad you found me to talk to. My friend that has mentored me tells me to get rid of everything that's not of God and that's a hard thing for me to do. I have an addictive personality not towards drugs or anything like that but Everything else, Except the Important things like Family, even God so I'm guilty for that and my wife gets on to me about that all the time but, we're having this conversation for a reason. I'm glad we are having a reasonable conversation and not fighting. I've been playing C and C since the end of the 90's and I can't tell you how much I've spent trying to keep my games going literally Thousands and my wife is still ****** at me, but loves me to death. I've only been on this website for a month or two, But I've been playing the C and C games on an Original Windows XP computer and the Mods work on it too.
