    i imported teh game from thailand (CD and CD key are valid) but the manual... well its in gibberish.

    and no, as far as i can tell, there is no waypoints - seems obvious, but its just not there.

    There should be a row of buttons at the bottom left of the screen. There are two types of waypoint options there.

    all games are like that dude. the only non spam games in the same style are probably turn based

    by spam, i take it he means fast paced - for a strategy game, there well... isnt any. build some of everything til you can get the last level of tech, then mass that unit. skirmish games i play last less than 30 minutes, whereas in supreme commander they can last 4-5 hours.

    The maps are veeery small, if you ask me.

    command and conquer levels would be boring if they were massive. Unless of course you were challenging a heap of players like >8.

    having a smaller map makes it more interesting. although it can be annoying if you like to hog resources

    actually i play 8 player games a lot - this game only really has team options, there arent any large maps for FFA style action.

    Oh and good idea protius, CofH is very anti-spam. That game requires strategy and tactics, and its graphics are just as good if not better than CnC3's :p

    I bought my game here in Manila, Philippines. And I believe it is only for a limited time only or until supplies last, the freebies I mean.

    I know isn't it the most efficent engine. I love it. I can max it out, and it hardly effects my sytem.

    The "freebies" were only available in the U.S. if the game was Pre-ordered. too late now.

    The Kane Edition is the special pack of C&C3.
    I comes with a set of extra wallpapers, single/multi player maps and a extra media DVD.
    That dvd contain strategy videos, NGs, and so on.
    I got it also.

    Well, I've got it now - it's ages since I last play C&C properly (Red Alert is probably the only one, and even that I didn't play for long) so I'm taking a little while to get use to it again, but it seems good so far. Haven't even touched the graphics settings yet, it looks ok at the moment and I think most of them defaulted to high anyway.
