All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

Post by woodbear » Sat Feb 25, 2006 6:45 pm

Hi there :wink:
I have the Biggest crush on the C&C series! and i wonder, if the First and maybe C&C redalert be supported sometime?
I know EA might not support this... but i really really want this!

I have done some programming in my past... have not seen at the source.. but if there is guides of how this work... i can take a look at it...
hate to just jump in a project...

thanx

ScummVM is not a general purpose virtual machine for games (like dosbox), it's a re-implementation of adventure game interpreters (think of it as re-coding what's in all the EXE files of the supported games)... Therefore, the C&C series is completely out of scope and will most probably never be supported...

Let me guess... you really meant "Windows systems", right? Or did they make versions for Linux and Mac (not to mention all the othere OSes and platforms out there) :-)
