Official notes[]

Worded by Jim Vessella:

Fellow Command & Conquer fans,

Today we are inviting you to try a Beta version of our in-development patch, which most importantly includes an early version of LAN Play. Our goal in sharing this Beta version is to get your feedback on LAN Play and ensure this feature is living up to your expectations. We’re looking for both qualitative and technical feedback on the feature, especially with regards to playing multiplayer LAN games with Mods enabled (either locally or over VPN). We reinforce this is an early version, and certain elements (including AI) may not work correctly in LAN play just yet.

Everyone who owns the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection on Steam is able to participate in this Beta version of the game. Please follow these steps to gain access:

  1. Go to your C&C Remastered Collection page on Steam
  2. Click on the Manage button (gear icon)
  3. Select Properties
  4. Navigate to the Betas tab
  5. In the dialog box, enter “TDRABetaPatch1”
  6. Click Check Code
  7. Once the code accepts, select the “Public Beta” branch from the drop down menu
  8. The game will now update to the Public Beta version, at which point you can play
  9. At any time, you can update back to the standard live version via the same drop down menu

Please note, there are several dozen other improvements in this Beta version, which we’ll list out in more detail when the patch is officially released. However, please keep an eye out for these key items:

  • The ability to choose the speed of Tiberium / Ore regrowth. This is now a slider in the game rules section. (0 being disabled, 1 being default, and 2-9 being multiples on default). We’re eager to see if this feature satisfies requests from the community, and we’re also looking for feedback on what the new Quickmatch default regrowth setting should be.
  • If you saw increased framerate stuttering or launch crashing after the June major patch versus the launch version, we have an experiment you can try:
    • Go to your C&C Remastered Collection page on Steam
    • Click on the Manage button (gear icon)
    • Select Properties
    • On the General tab, select “Set Launch Options…”
    • In the box, enter “NOSPLASHPRELOAD”
    • Click OK and launch the game
    • This will effectively revert the texture optimizations we made in the June Patch, and may help performance / stability with certain hardware configurations (This launch option will also work with the standard live branch as well)
