Never Give Up, Never Surrender.

Recommended Posts

Hello all AAOW fans! Yes this is IronRaptor and not Evilviking. There has been a coup and EvilViking has been overthrown.

I know you all might be sad at the site of this hostile takeover,

I am kidding of course. However Viking has finally decided to stop making everything so hard on him since he has a very aspring career ahead of him in 3D development and is getting swamped with real life so he has decided to name me Project Co-leader.

Viking will still be around to help out, put his opinions in and finish this beast and make sure its the AAOW he dreamed of long ago. But as for alot of the actual staff assignments, some news posting and other various things I will be taking over to ease some of this stress. I have big shoes to fill and I won't be able to fill them completely but I hope to make some pretty big foot prints of my own.

Now first off, we need staff. Over this past time of inactivity we have lost many staff. Currently DS is way too stressed for people and lacking some altogether. With the release of CnC 3 and Generals ZH becoming older many have moved on.

But we are looking for new people. Now I know from reading past posts by many of you that you may of submitted applications and work to EvilViking. As I have said he has been super busy and if he didn't get to you its not that he didn't like it.

However I will also be accepting applications. I will run each application through our department leads and Evilviking along with myself to determine authenticity, detail, and workmanship. If you would like to apply please email EvilViking AND myself at EvilViking[AT]gmail.com and IronRaptor87[AT]gmail.com. The [AT] is really @ but we try to avoid spam.


Sorry no pictures this time but if we get more people hired in and we get going again the pictures and news will flow. I really need good modelers.....and 2-D artists....could also use coders who are creative but will follow some coding standard such as COMMENTING thier creations clearly and being able to explain thier ideas and processes to others.

We need people in all departments but really we need them the most in modelling and 1-2 in coding. Maps too but thats not really a priorty right now. Well get those apps in people. We need support on the front as soon as possible.

He's lying! It's a coup! I'm being held under the secret volcano in a tiny cell and *thump*




In all seriousness, everyone welcome Raptor to his new position. PHEAR HIM! ph34r.gif

Oh, and if you sent me an email applying for a staff position and I never emailed you back, it's not because I'm busy, it's just because I hate you.

Kidding. Send it again and CC IronRaptor in on it. tongue.gif

Real programmers don't document. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

Uh lets try to post something that is important. I am taking a programming class too by the way and REAL programmers document thier work and allow someone else to understand the code to adjust or edit it if it is needed.


Seriously, I am looking for positive comments and forward progress. Screwing off has come to an end.....we had almost a year of that and its time we crack down and get some work done. When we get a new release we will have fun but we have to get working first before we start goofing off.

No I'm not gonna tell you guys we are working when we aren't I won't reveal everything otherwise there is no surprise in a release. However we hit a all time low. I checked the forums over and over but honestly I can only do so much. I was a mapper and I still am some but multiplayer maps won't finish the mod.


We currently have 5 memebers who are active right.......FIVE PEOPLE.......if killakanz comes back....then 6.......i want 10 people or so. I still need coders, mission makers, and especially modelers and 2-D artists......we have icons, labels and all kinds of pictures to make along with models.

Multiplayer maps I have covered but I need missions too, right now its not a priority, we have to finish Iraq side before we can make Iraq missions but we need coders and modelers to finish the faction then the mappers to do the missions then while they work on the missions we can get the modelers and coders making North Korea.

Hey, I'm one of those people who have been following the mod since v1.1(i think), but haven't really posted out of... idk. (I'm sure theres others unsure.gif )

But anyway, I'm really happy to see things rolling again, but with a sharper tone, (ie not joking around too much)
Good luck.

P.S. To tell the truth, the car i was in got hit by a bus last week >.>

Sure. i mean, if this project is going ahead then i'd gladly do what i can.

i've got experience in 3dsmax and made models for other games, but unfortunately i have zero experience with Generals.
so where should i send samples and a proper application to?
