Dark experiments have permanently altered time. Or have they? Now, Soviet tanks crush city after city while Allied cruisers shell bases. Spies lurk, land mines wait, and strange new technologies aid both sides in their struggle for ultimate control. Einstein was a brilliant mind, but he did not comprehend the consequences of his actions until it was too late... Command & Conquer: Red alert gives you the opportunity to be more devious, cunning and ruthless than ever before. Easy to play and highly addictive, Red alert puts the fate of the world in your hands!
This build includes all of the major new features and balance changes that we have planned for our Christmas release, and it is going to be one of our biggest releases yet!
We rely on your testing and feedback to make sure that our release builds are as balanced and bug-free as possible, so please let us know if you find any issues or just generally don’t like something by filing a bug or joining our IRC channel! We will try our best to fix any issues before the final release.

The multiplayer server browser and game lobby have been redesigned around a new global chat channel.
This will make it easier to find and talk with other players, and to organize matches without server-hopping.
The channel is available from outside the game as well, by connecting to irc.openra.net:6667 channel #lobby using your favourite IRC client.
Do you think that our default game speed is too slow (or too fast)? We now include a game speed option in the lobby and campaign menus!
A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct. This every sister of the Bene Gesserit knows.

One of our big focuses has been completely overhauling our Dune 2000 mod to more closely match the original game. All of the unit and building statistics have been adjusted, and we have implemented new (old) features including the thumper and spice blows.
We have made good progress towards matching the feel of the original game, but we aren't there yet. Let us know what you think, or if you find something that still doesn't match!
The Tiberian Dawn mod includes some incremental balance changes plus a bug fix for SAM Sites that would refuse to close. We have included several new multiplayer maps, and two new campaign missions — including a stormy commando mission.
The Red Alert mod finally recieved a much needed shock-trooper nerf, and a fix for destroyed aircraft taking far too long to crash to the ground. The Soviet Hijacker and France's fake structures have also been improved, and we include five(!) new campaign missions.
Another commonly requested feature was the ability to scroll using the right mouse button like a joystick (like TS and RA2). You can now enable "Joystick" scrolling in the Input tab of the Settings dialog. We are still hard at work on our Tiberian Sun mod, but we still don't have a release date for you yet!
Players have often complained about their units chasing the enemy across the map, and our "pro" players know that it is best to change the stance of their units to the "defend" mode. We have made this the new default for all units, streamlining the game play a little bit for everyone.
If you want to change your units back to the old "attack anything" mode you can use the change stance hotkey (ctrl+z by default).
We have consolidated our asset installation procedure into the mod chooser. Look out for even more improvements in future releases!
We have fixed a large number of bugs, including the well-known replay freeze bug when a player disconnects, and a memory corruption bug that would cause random crashes when starting a match on a Windows OS. We have continued our crusade for performance, and this playtest shows significant further improvements over the last release.
There is a boatload of new features for modders and map authors: maps can now include custom music and define particle effects for rain, snow, or sand storms. We have made major changes to the traits that control actor rendering and targeting that make them more flexible and self-consistent. Make sure to use the automatic rule upgrader to easily port your maps and mods to the new release! You will need to manually update your mod.yaml and UI definitions for the new version.

Love RA1! You can tell that the best of the best was put in for this game, despite its graphics compared to now. Then they were very good, plus the cmapaign had a great storyline no matter what, with that great question of "what if..."
