ON the C&C series: in the original C&C I could never pass the level where you are with the good guys, you have a regeneration pod, no chance for any other building, no harvester, only 1 strong tank, and the enemy (the weed-worshipping terrorists) has a laser tower. You have no aircraft to dispose the tower.
That was my only try with the series (gave it two goes in the years).
Yes.
I am using the last version of Firefox of Mozilla Co. available - 34.0.5
Using this Bookmarks bar is very handy for me because every icon shows some site to enter. And pictures are specific and again help me to orient.
Till now i have to point empty icon and read what is the site.
Not really because i know every icon after years of usage.
This is not fatal problem anyway for experienced user.

Renegade
Bad news for me.
I have not Original game but some fake. Rats!!
Dear twillight, would You be so kind, informing me about:
- Do You meet this Obelisk and if Yes how do You run around it being not imm. kill by its dead fire beams?
Thanks.

Details:
In attachment Yr slave is out of tank (it is 10 meters behind me) at save distance from the tower - actually famous Obelisk.
I show the save shelter.
Every step out of shelter is deadly.
So i am stopped and my mission failed.

According to some alkthrough you should avoid the Obelisk in C&C:Renegade until you disable the Power Plant from inside of the Power Plant.

Otherwise you can NOT avoid the Obelisk, as that has 360 degree instant attack (and instant destroy on anything but the most heavy units) on any ground thingy.

This is the exact problem I talked in my game, where you can not even disable the Obelisk by destroying something else (as far as I know).

The original game by the way is accessible on Abandonia!

Thanks a lot,
dear and competent twillight.
Your words clear the situation.
I have to rethink my condition now.

I have no idea about the game - but you seems solved it anyway - but you don't need to resort to _such_ poor shots. Use JPG instead PNG. It have internal lossy compression, so will give you much lesser size with adequate quality.

I'd counter that jpg vs png thing.

As I noticed in practice jpg has worse quality in colouration, and like 10-times the size compared to png.

But test it for yourself, that1s the only sure way.

You are right about color - or rather blurness+artifacts - of the image. But it's sure better than crisp black&white for me.

Checked from this shot. It's JPG with the size of 60kb. Same shot converted to PNG became 515kb. So yes, you are right about 10x size too.

O, yes, Your picture is very nice compared with my crisp B&W.
I will try next time.
But it is very strange for me person with 270 games (true?) never heard about C&C!
Het.
I do not believe.
Moreover You are really one of battling sides in the game.
Ha ha ha.

Please, i am kidding only now. Do not cry, tob.

1. It's much more. 270 are unfinished games that registered on Steam.

2. Oh, _knowing_ about game and _playing_ the game are not synonyms. I never finished even one level of the any id game, except Heretic. I even didn't see full version of Half-Life. So what? I know _about_ them, they are simply not very "my" games.

Bravo, SS.
Bravo.
Poor brave has passed 94 games only. Sob..sob..
Heretic? O, my respect!
You are speaking about Heretic 1.3, because this game contains 5 add-ons.

I attach C&C picture which is JPG and much more better than crisp B&W.
