I thought it was this way:

C&C1 = Tiberian Dawn
C&C2 = Red Alert
C&C3 = Tiberian Sun
C&C4 = Red Alert 2
C&C(5) = Renegade
C&C(6) = Generals

Hmm :-\

Incorrect. Forever.

C&C 0 (Red Alert) C&C 1 (TD)  C&C 2 (TS)
Red Alert 2 (Not a part of the storyline)
Renegade
Shittyfg-IMEAN Generals.

Why zero for Red Alert?

And why shitty Generals . . . it's the best C&C ever released ???. Even because of the good mods like "Blitzkrieg II".

Red Alert was a prequel to Tiberian Dawn, then EA went running with the storyline and made RA2.

And I find Generals to be the shittiest shit shit shit ever. It's not C&C. It. Is. Not. C. N. C. Its a bad Starcraft ripoff with modern events to sell more.

Red Alert wasnt a prequel to Tiberian Dawn. It was a 'What if...' type of game which split the C&C games into two 'universes'. Red Alert being where WW2 never happened because Hitler was killed before it happened.

The events that happen in Red Alert and Red Alert 2 have nothing to do with Tiberian Dawn or Tiberian Sun because they are happening in a 'parallel universe'

Do you know the end movie of Red Alert for the Soviets . . . Kane was there and talked about the brotherhood of Nod. How do you explain this then ????

Sorry, but I like modding games that, oh, I don't know, suck? Generals was a classic example of an EA Game: A giant ball of fad with some ripoff to make it sell. The game sucks. End of line.

Owned.

And Matt, they aren't seperate universes..

as seen here in Westwood beta stages of Renegade 2.


Mammoth Tank


Kirov Airship.. with Nod emblem.

The Soviets disbanded and formed the Bortherhood of Nod.

But back on-topic, right?

Yes, TibEd is a nightmare, but it may help if you've never modded the Sun/Alert engine, or don't know what exactly to look for in the INI files.

The Red Alert series is set in an alternate timeline, created when Albert Einstein travels back in time and assassinates Adolf Hitler, in an attempt to prevent World War II. This backfires and results in an unchecked Soviet invasion of Europe by Joseph Stalin. The games typically follow the release of a game in the Tiberian timeline; however EA is currently working on a new Red Alert game instead of the anticipated Tiberian Twilight.

I never liked Tiberian Sun. The graphics IMO were downsized and gameplay was clunky. I own all the C&C games except C&C Generals: Zero Hour which I plan to get when i get a better rig. Generals rules the lot though.

Oh damn this is how I though it went but Matt is correct

Red Alert(Kane freezes himself at Soviets lose.)
C&C Tiberan Dawn(Allies Form GDI and Kane makes Nod) Spoiler: Kane "dies" but in Tiberian Sun he is back some how.
C&C Tiberian Sun(GDI and NOD still fighting)

I dont see the problem with Generals?  I think its a fantastic game, and much easier to mod than RA2.  If you can appreciate it as a standalone game, then yeah, its good.  It wasnt meant to have a story, it was just made as a new RTS multiplayer game.

I always thought:

RA1 - The whole Stalin thang, borked timeline and such.  (end of RA1 Soviet campaign, you see Kane).
RA2 - The 80's / 90's ... Soviets invade the US.
C&C 1 - Late 90's / Early 00's Due to an increase in global terrorism, the United Nations come to an agreement on the new Global Defense Initiative program.  Terrorist elements form together and become NOD.
C&C Renegade - NOD cells start poking around, and GDI commando Havoc is sent in to stop em etc.
C&C (2) TS - GDI becomes the new United Nations, and oversees global counter-terrorism and military manouveres.

I suppose the Generals story could be considered as the reason why GDI is formed, due to the GLA becoming an evermore expanding threat.  But I consider it as a standalone tbh.

Anyhizzle, I used to work on RA2 modding a while back, creating voxels and GUI kits.  Been a while though, if you see me in IRC gimme a poke and I'll try and help out.  God I wish they'd make a working .w3d plugin for 3ds max  >:(

ps. Airforce General ftw.

All of you that wish to help: Contact via MSN, GTALK, or AIM.


And Generals is fun, I'll admit. But it's not C&C.
