Today exactly 10 years ago i publicly released the very first version of ShockWave namely version 0.8
To this present day its played by many and become pretty much a cult classic at this point.

A lot has happened during the past 10 years people have come and gone and ShockWave also officially stopped to be actively developed by us in 2011.
Well as of today i'm pleased to announce we will do one more major update to this mod to address some of the issues that have become obvious over the time since our last official release.

We've already been doing some preparations on this and our anniversary release will include a completely reworked generals challenge, bug fixes and some necessary balance tweaks.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we will announce more details on this development smile.gif

Wow, knew there was a reason to continue 'watching' this mod, hope there will be a version 1.0 in the future with tons of new features/units to rival/surpass Contra mod! Welcome back General! XD

If you think that shockwave has to "surpass" Contra, there's no hope no matter what SWR does.

if your talking about the super HQ stuff they has, it will take way too long for a simple balance\fix work session to be worth it.
but if they start working on those kinds of aspects in ROTR, they MAY be able to lvl it up a bit, at the cost of delaying it for another year or 2.( final release speaking)

Why does Shockwave have to surpass Contra?

They're their own mods, with their own identities, they don't have to compete.

I think if you use the map maker, they're called CIA, and also Secret Service. One carries a briefcase. So you're right.

too many stuff were changed from the original zero hour, so they need to be remade from almost 50% (only minor changes to map, and swapping of the units to the new stuff, and prehaps adding some generals insted of vannila at some missions). though if someone is ready to make an adaptetion of them, the team will put them in. probebly.

I think it'd be a really nice idea if you would add the navy in Shockwave since you removed it from ROTR ,and I think it will be more fun having navy in SHockwave.Or at least make i avalaible as an addon for this mod.After all I think it wouldn't be that hard work since it is already fuctional in ROTR .
Happy 10th birthday , peace and love .

its a nice idea in theory - but the reason navy was removed from RotR was because it wasnt exactly "functional" in RotR, caused definite lag/stutter problems related to pathfinding, amongst other things.

Yes, but you will need the C&C Ultimate Collection fixed launchers from Bibber in order for the C&C mods to work.

Great mod but slight request: Can you make the AI garrison? It doesn't seemto do that at current. I know I am playing with one of the fan patches but IDK if that affected the AI

Shockwave is a fantastic MOD, always load it into my ZH installs. Shared it with a lot of friends that agree it's amazingly fun to play. Excellent work regardless of whether you ever release another update.

This MOD helped push the AI ONSLAUGHT MAPS to a 30 count. Shockwave MOD always worked well with these maps, so I have consolidated them & uploaded them here at MOD DB.

Shockwave gives Zero Hour so much more replay value, it's like a HUGE expansion that EA should have paid you to make ;)

Anyhow, looking forward to playing the MOD with AI ONSLAUGHT MAPS soon!

You stopped the active development back in 2011 already? Damn, I am feeling more old by that than seeing people born in the 90s being in their 20s now. :P

Anyway, I am not too familiar with the difference between TFD/Origin version, but anybody knows if the current release of Shockwave works with the Origin version?

Could be interesting to people, especially since it is in the Humble Bundle right now (installed ROTR last night with it, works like a charm).

Me too, I will turn 20 in 2018 due to being born in 1998 and at that time, I think both ROTR 2.0 and the Shockwave patch will be released but I'm not sure.

p.s I hope you bring it up to speed with your other fantastic mod ROTR, Shockwave looks a little rusty in comparison now (went and played after reading this and compared the two!)
