If you open the command console and type "Russia:Yuri_Relived"
you get units that have the same names as those from older cnc games.
Change Cost of weapons:
Backup the file before editing!!!
It is possible to edit the INI.big file in your game directory. But you have to use a Hex-Editor.
Do not change the lenght of the file or the game will not boot again..
Just Overwrite the Text you need.
Search for "BuildCost" and overwrite it like
"BuildCost = 2000" Orig.
"BuildCost = 0000" Faked.
Do not DELETE anything.
How to blow up a battalion of infantries:
If you are the Chinese make at least 10 inferno tanks and send them all together at once and park them somewhere where your opponent love to send you those rebels or rangers or red guards to sneak on you and once they pass you you can watch the fireworks blow!!! inferno tank works great with their technology too!!! now you know how to beat those scums!
[note: this works too with the GLA toxic truck.]
Get Old Unit Names:
Bring up the console and type in Russia:Yuri_Relived to get unit names from older C&C titles (No new graphics though).
How to win against turtling opponents:
Well, tired of those online players that do nothing but build up there defenses? Well here's the solution! all you have to do is, if your usa, send raptors to eliminate there defenses and supply centers as necessary, try going for the power supply first, and use the A10 strike to weather down there defenses more. Then after there power and supply center is out they will have trouble knowing when you coming and creating new defenses. At this point simply send in a sizable force of humvees with the tow missile upgrade and full of rangers with capture building. Simply send them in unload the rangers and capture and sell there base.
When you are china, build an airfield and put a speaker tower right behind it. So when your planes have got damaged in battle they heal faster. To make it even quicker upgrade the speaker towers in the propaganda center.
Destory ULA bunkers:
If your sick and tyered of thouse annoying ULA stinger sites. Well there is a simple and cheap way to clear them out. All you need is about 3 USA rangers with the flash grenades upgrade. Then send them to the bunkers and tell them to aim there flash grenades at the bunker. This will kill the 3 rocket soldiers inside and you can then use your rangers to finish off the stinger site with there machine guns.
The only 4 tanks you will ever need:
It doesn't get any easier than this. Build four Overlord tanks. The big ones China has. Two of them must have Propaganda upgrades and the other two need the Chaingun upgrade. It,s also helpful to have the two Nuke upgrades, but thats optional. Because of the Propaganda the Overlord is un-killable in a small group. I took out aprox 400 enemy units and 46 buildings with these bad boys. Its best not to use faster units in this group because they get too far away from the overlords and get killed. Have fun.
Be GLA and build a Jarmin K(e)(i)ll and 4 rebels and a Technical.
put them all in the tecnical and ride to the enemies base.
Then make Jarmin shoot the driver out of a construction dozer.
Make 1 rebel to enter the vehicle and... Voila you can build (chinese or american) buildings.
NOTE: this only works when you are GLA and enemy is USA or China!!!
