Just recently, Red Alert 2 producer Harvard Bonin, came back from a five day trip to Korea. Accompanying him was Frank Hsu (producer for next big Ra2 project **wink**). Their goal was to experience the unique Korean game culture and gaming environment to help better plan for the future. While there Harvard and Frank both embraced the opportunity to meet with Korea's best Red Alert 2 players, Chang Hwan Kim and Joo Young Choi and exchange feedback on the game and units. Harvard and Frank also took this opportunity to give these guys a little taste of Westwood power, but instead of showing of their stuff, they shook their heads in amazement. The Korean players toppled these two guys within minutes, apparently with strategies never before seen. Attached are images from their trip, enjoy!

Shot 1 - Frank and Harvard show off the goods!

Shot 2 - Harvard concentrates on his RA2 game!

In Emperor News, we just recently added our unit of the week to the site and posted an exclusive interview with the lead testers from our QA Dept.

For those of you that missed the chat log with Emperor's producer Chris Longpre! We have made a link to the log file on our site so that no of our fans miss the loads of information that was released..

/emperor/english/log/Empchatlog.txt

Next Wednesday January 31st from 4:00 - 5:00 PM Delphi and Virtual Ted will be hosting a chat with Harvard Bonin. The chat will cover information about our upcoming patch for RA2 and possibly what the future holds for RA2. ;) Stay tuned to our RA2 news section for more info!

Wednesday January 24th 5:00 PM - 9:00 (PST) we will be hosting Westwood VS The World at RA2 on the US server. Myself and many other Westwood staffers will be on hand to demonstrate to the world how to play our game. All Westwood representatives will have a lightning bolt next their nickname; game types and number of people they play will be random. Prizes will include: T-shirts, Music CD's, Red Alert 2 pin sets, posters, and some very special pewter figurines from the collector's edition of Red Alert 2. Also, there are thousands of players and only a handful of us; we will do our best to hurry games so that we can challenge the many players.

CONGRATULATIONS to the guys over at www.cncnation.org. They have been selected as our featured site of the week.. This week, I would like to take a second and acknowledge Olaf van der Spek creator of XCC utilities. His contributions and code base have been used in making some of the finer C&C editing utilities to date. Without individuals like Olaf that have a passion for our games, the C&C community would not be as strong as it is today. Thanks Olaf! Westwood appreciates all the hard work and time you've put in to help making the C&C experience better for everyone.

XCC Utilities - http://xcc.tiberian.com

(Note we acknowledge the work of those the help to better the game experience for everyone. It is Westwood's hope that the community will come together and help stop the release of trainers and hacks for our games. These hinder the enjoyment of the game experience for many people and these users should be frowned upon )

It's looks as though the Red Alert 2 team is gearing for another project, hmm wonder what they have in mind? =)

Renegade seems to be moving right along, matter of fact, the March issue of Computer Gaming World will have brand new shots of Westwood's upcoming action game. Look for it to hit shelves in early February.

I've heard a rumor that the Emperor team has been working on a new desktop theme pack for fans to download. No ETA, I'll be sure to let everyone know once I hear something.

20-01-01 | News Update

I'm in the middle of redesigning this site - I will also be adding new content and services to it as well - it will be hosted by strategy-gaming which means I can appoint staff - which means an even bigger and better site - please be patient while everything goes ahead :) It may be ready within the next week...

15-01-01 | GOOD news..

Red2world will soon be moving servers - we will be hosted by the premier strategy gaming site - www.strategy-gaming.com - this is a MUCH better server and will also allow me to use SSI and CGI services - for those of you that are currently thinking *CGI,SSI what the hell??* it basically means I'll be able to do a whole lot more with the site - including setting up Newspro ( allows people apart from myself to add news to the site ) which means that I will be looking for news updaters - they must:

  • Have fairly good English
  • Have basic HTML skills at least - u can learn basic skills from HTMLclinic..

If anyone thinks they mite be interested then please email me - I'll probably be looking for a team of four/five good men ( *or girls - yes there are girls that play ra2 - well done to them I say ) to do the job..make sure u email me if u r interested..

The change of servers will result in even mroe regularly updated news, better updating speed to site, better loading times and one advertising banner instead of those little pop up windows ( yes they really annoy me too!!)...

If everything goes well then the server change could go ahead by the end of the month - I will keep you updated on progress....
