LED Wars - 22/01/08 02:19 PM

Has anyone tried this game from Larian before? I read a couple of reviews(written years ago) which stated that it creams even the most experienced RTS players. Is that really true?

I've never even heard of it, Raito, honestly.

Certainly got my attention if it's all but unbeatable, though - masochist that I am <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Well, a number of reviews/comments claim it to be. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Though it was released in 1997 and I've absolutely no idea how it fairs against the newer AI now. Oh and the resolution is like 640x480. And I don't know if it works on Windows XP.

P.S. Talking about RTS games, is Red Alert a good game for newbies? The last time I tried strategy game was quite some time ago: they were all interesting but it got soo boring staring at a bunch of sprites going "

I don't remember having ever seen it in shops.

So - I don't know.

You can still give it a go if you want: you can easily find a complete and seemingly legal download.

It's not a BAD game for newbies, but there are probably better...

I find it a bit hard to judge, as I'm an RTS junkie, so don't yell at me if I'm wrong, OK? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

[color:"orange"]you can easily find a complete and seemingly legal download.[/color]

I thought the most commonly available download was a hacked version, missing the intro and cutscenes? I found a couple download locations, one of which listed the file size as 19MB; AFAIR that is the same size as the download mentioned some time ago in another topic (possibly in the old forum).
Excluding DirectX, the LED Wars CD contents are 226MB and compression doesn't make a huge dent in that (224MB zip, 204MB 7z format). The full version is probably available somewhere (I bought it new off eBay a couple years ago, in a 2 CD, DVD case bundle with the FPS game Mortyr).

A quick search on eBay for L.E.D. Wars brings up a couple used copies, but searching for Mortyr gets one auction for a new copy of L.E.D. Wars / Mortyr (ends in 9 days; no bids; current price, including shipping to North America, is under $7).


As I recall, Lar said they considered releasing the game as legitimate freeware. However, they had switched compilers since creating the game, and there were too many compiler-specific idiosyncrasies to be able to track down all the errors that came up (in a reasonable amount of time) when they tried recompiling the game without the copy protection.

I could be wrong, but I think they'd need the publishing rights as well as the software rights to do that. They might not have the publishing rights, as they're often held by another company.

That's my wild guess, at least <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Well, Ionos, the publisher for LED Wars is no longer around. As for the publishing rights, I've no idea who inherited them(if we suppose that Ionos held them, that is)?
Posted By: AlrikFassbauer

Re: LED Wars - 26/01/08 09:07 PM

If Ionos was bought, then someone has the rights.

Doing a recherche after that can be expensive, depending on huch much work is needed.

It may not be worth Larian's while to get the rights back again, especially if they have no real plans for it or for any sequels to it.

Re: LED Wars - 26/01/08 09:41 PM

I don't think Larian sold or otherwise lost the right to publish LED Wars, or they would not have bothered attempting to re-compile the game again without the copy protection.

I got the impression it was simply too much work for too little benefit to go through code that they had not looked at in years, track down all the errors due to the differences in compilers, and then have to do a round of beta testing to catch problems or conflicts that didn't result in a compile error.
Presumably the media the original compiler was on got discarded, lost or damaged, or the compiler itself had problems on newer systems.

Hmmm... well, isn't that common? Many companies often "fold" before they even manage to start operating while others are short-lived 'cos they couldn't generate enough profits to break-even.

Yeah... these days, projects cost millions of bucks and the development cycle takes forever for real-time 3d projects: a reason why some developers reverted to/use 2d with 3d. This means that the publishing date is often heavily delayed and the more games you compete against, the harder it is to recoup profits.

Besides, it's always better to kill off a company if it's losing a lot of money and where there's absolutely no way left to rescue it. For an example, think of a heavily bureaucratic Japanese company where 'cos of loyalty to "tradition" and "rules", "corruption", "greed", etc., the directors/board refuses to downsize or scrap the company. The resulting factor is losses of trillions of yen(around a few billions worth USD/Euros) which sometimes has lasting repercussions on the economy and local businesses.

The other side isn't funny either, however.

We recently have the problem of Nokia shutting down a manufacturing plant with around 1000 people losing their jobs in favour to another plant in Romania - where the people earn usually less, compared to other European standards.

Meanwwhile, Nokia gained several millions or even more as pure profits.

We here in Germany still believe in kind of an social responsibility of companies - of course not that exaggerated as in your example, but still ...

Here in Germany we call companies which move from country to country in order to gain more profits as "locusts", because they settle down, eat everything, and travel further. What they leave behind is wreckage, but tey don't care in their every-hungry mood.

Releasing LED wars as freeware would imply to rebuild it to get rid of some deprecated dependencies. And getting the beast to properly compile on a modern environment is challenging, to say the least. I once managed to make it start up by cutting away lots of stuff, but as soon as someone would fire a rocket the whole game would blow up... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Still, if you got the original game it runs fine on XP.

Heh... trying to compile it in a modern environment, huh? I guess... that's little wonder why few game companies actually re-release their ancient games. It must be a pain trying to get the compiler to even function in Windows XP... what about those compilers from the Dos days? :P

Eh... you mean the game causes the computer to blow up? "Mommy, the computer is on fire." Just kidding! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ROFL.gif" alt="" />

That said, I get what you mean... :P I really ought to put LED Wars on my "to buy" list in the distant future. The protection doesn't bother me unless it fries my pc, in which case, I'd start looking like my avatar. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />

Yeah, some companies these days try to look for jobs for their employees if they're doing mass retrenchment or if the plant/office is closing down. But that's probably 'cos of the laws passed in various states/countries. Otherwise, I doubt that most of them would even bother.

And yep, retrenchment is nasty. Well, having some form of social responsibility isn't that bad: if there's a way to rescue a company and the board takes the shortcut instead and kills it, then it's really messed up. It's only when things fall to the extreme(obsession towards laws, rules, etc.) that problems could go really wrong.

Has there ever been a patch or so released ?

Re: LED Wars - 08/03/08 11:24 PM

There were a couple patches linked to in another forum topic, but those pages are dead now. However, any re-release versions of the game are most likely already updated (I don't recall checking version numbers, but I never saved the patches when they were first mentioned).
