How to start
your first skirmish game with the game paused
By The Silencer
Just run TA and click on Load game
first, then click on cancel. Now run a Skirmish game. Notice that it'll be
paused once the game is loaded.
This tip is useful for people whom got slow computers (as me when I wrote this), so loading a
game can take them several minutes. It saves you those annoying 2 minutes of AI's advantage
when the game is already running and you're (bored) doing any other
thing while your
computer was still loading =)
How to start the game without
the intro video movie
Just right click on
your TA icon, and then add -c to the command line. It

video will be no longer shown.

Players tend to
play one or more of the following styles, depending on what map they
play or even against who they play...:
Concentrates on making its base into a defensive
fortress. Teching up early, they rely on massive tactical strikes or
squads of elite high-tech units.
guiding principle is quantity over quality. Quickly spreading out over
the map, and trying to maximize resources income, it virtually ignore
defenses and concentrate on offense. For it, anything is expendable.
The air is the path to victory for the Eagle.
Planes, with their vast mobility and unsurpassed ability to
concentrate fire, are the Eagle’s weapon choice. Striking quickly,
lethally, and then disappearing in the Eagle’s style.
Swarmer or Rusher:
Bases its self on to flood the enemy under
waves of cheap troops, wasting enemy’s expansion efforts until it
finally annihilates him.
