Back in the days when I was still a kid I recall having huge amounts of fun playing GR. As with much like everything in life except bad habits, GR and gaming in general took a different path. However, after having read SimHQ's 10 motives to reinstall GR I thought: hells yeah! Why not?! I installed GR w/ DS and TI on a W7SP1 x64 notebook rig, works like charm. Trust me, I've seen otherwise.
10 Years later I am amazed by the activity of the GR niche market and all 3rd party content! However, things are getting quite confusing. Numerous expansion packs, total conversions (what's the difference?), mods, etc., I'm getting kinda lost!
I already found out that Heroes Unleashed is a must have so I installed that and put it on the highest priority over DS and TI, but what other additional software is a must have? Also, how and where can I take part in the multiplayer scene? Since I can imagine I can't knock on some clan's door with a few packs of Corona's, asking if I can come in after being away from GR for quite some years.
Would be great if you guys could give me some pointers..
PS: I just have this thing for desert warfare, so if there's a digital Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, etc. that'd be awesome.
