Extended C&C
by Olaf van der Spek

Extended C&C, more commonly known as simply XCC, is the label Olaf van der Spek uses to release his tools under. The label and Olaf himself owe much of their fame to the XCC Utilities, which was the first wide-spread suite of modding-tools for MIX/INI based Westwood games. The tools evolved over the years and games, and the latest incarnations of XCC Mixer can also read Generals' and BfME's BIG and other of their formats. XCC's last big coup was XWIS, the XCC WOL IRC Server.
