Faites le conquering
Faites le conquering by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 16th submission to DYOS X. [link]

Cinematics from the older C&C games are of low resolution, and in-game playback uses a cheeky effect of darkening alternating lines to help mask the quality. For screencaps, I read the video files directly from another program and then add the lines manually.

I have taken this opportunity to correct a glaring grammatical error in the original publication for which any native French-speaker, and even intermediate FSLs would rightly chastise me. This was actually harder said than done, as Vista Paint anti-aliases text differently than XP Paint, meaning I had to dig through DYOS 8 archives to find a letter the appropriate size.

I make no excuses for Napoleon.
