Hello there humans!

First off, this is my first post here so I just wanted to say that I am glad that people still play this game. I have fond memories of being a warmongering butthead against my dad, who showed me this game some 15+ years ago. I'm not someone who has played religiously since, however, I do fancy a few games every couple of months or so.

There is just one problem: No matter how hard I try, I find it absurdly difficult to beat the game on Transcend difficulty with the original factions. I have managed to beat the one difficulty before it a few times though, including my recent record of 3 hours on a large map.

Okay I should get to the point. I am looking to see if anyone has some commentated Transcend difficulty recordings that I could watch, as I think this might help me learn how it is done. After all, this is how I learn about other video games I play.

Also, I would love to see some recordings of Human vs Human(s) matches, that would be good fun to watch, especially if there's hilarious commentary!

I went digging and found a thing.

This is from 2006, so its vintage saves and a txt document. There may be compatibility problems and very stale memes in the text.

Thanks for that, maybe I can get it working. Any idea if it's SMACX or original?

Should be SMAX, there's mention of a Cyborg faction in the text. This was in the long gap after official support ended but before the GoG re release, so should be firaxis final patch.
