Sounds Yuri's Revenge.

Command and Conquer Red Alert 2's expansion. The barbarians sound like brutes to me. They punch tanks, yes?

i am not certain however you get enough yuri clones and towers together you got more then enough of a captured battalion of troops and tanks to use, talk about an unfair advantage over one side.

anyone used to play quiver? :nervous:

Yea, but if psychic towers loose power, you lose control of the captured units. And you can just 'feed' masterminds grunts to make it kill itself. And snipers can deal with the Yuri clones. If you don't have snipers, Terror Drones and dogs will do just fine. IIRC, Brutes can't attack dogs and vice versa.

Re-installed Emperor: Battle for Dune. Bring on the Minotaurs! :D

=edit=
Anyone know how to stablise framerates on old games? Right now, my Emperor frame rate goes from 60 to 100 then jumps back down, and keeps going up and down.

pretty simple,
Code: [Select]
mount c d:\folder\folder
d:
game.exe

the speed of dosbox should of been automatically set so it can played without the insame frame rate speeds.

It usually works, but some games, like Stargunner, might encounter problems. Mind you, Stargunner is a VERY nice side-scrolling shooter. It's not as good as Raptor, but close enough. And no way can it beat Tyrian 2000.

Arrr...then don't use DOSBox. It only emulates DOS games and some DOS applications like ImpulseTracker. :blah:

i am on planet leeds after meeting up with trent's adoptive father. im not sure how but playing freelancer is making me crave to play gta:sa again, probably the utter random stupidity factor. going around watching random thing go off and then causing choas like flipping cars over and somehow they explode after a few seconds which is highly dubious and rather odd :lol:. i will play it after i done freelancer.

current situation: after escaping from liberty > Mactan > wormhole > Planet leeds.

Apparently the arj is a format 7zip can access; use it to unzip the files, the run the game. I can't seem to start it; i'm attributing that fact to vista.
