Software update: OpenRA 20181215




A new stable edition of OpenRA has become available. OpenRA is an open source and cross-platform clone of Dune 2000 and the Command and Conquer titles Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. The basic components, which are sufficient to be able to play the game, can be downloaded from the internet. For all parts such as music and movies you need the original CD. OpenRA has some improvements over the original games. For example, they can be played in a higher resolution and multiplayer games can be played against players on other platforms. This issue contains only a small collection of bug fixes, but the main news is that there is now a remake of Krush Kill ‘n’ Destroy.
