Wielding strange new technologies and hungering for revenge, the Soviet Army invades America. Overwhelmed Allied forces, unprepared for the surprise attack, are decimated. Will freedom be crushed under the heels of Communist aggression. Red Alert 2 is another Real Time Strategy from Westwood the makers of the brilliant Command and Conquer series. This is one of the few RTS that really was modded heavily, and not just limited to new maps and or player models.

13 comments by Milanium on Feb 24th, 2013

A frequently asked question is why there is no Tiberian Sun or Red Alert 2 mod. The short answer: the engine does not support it yet. The long answer: you can already try and convert the file formats to add infantry and buildings. So what is needed for native support without conversions:

3D terrain and Isometry

This is currently not supported, but not as far fetched as one might think. We recently stumpled upon CnCMaps.Net which turned out to be re-factored OpenRA code to render high-quality map previews.


SHP Format changes

The file formats for infantry/buildings changed since Tiberian Sun, but it is already reverse engineered. In fact the SHP Viewer is built upon OpenRA and supports them.


Voxel support

The biggest addition to the engine by Westwood since Tiberian Sun is Voxel support. All vehicles are in fact 3D models although the games still had a static camera and the look and feel was still very much like that of sprite-only era. Paul started hacking on OpenRA again and presented some experimental voxel support a few days ago.

Tiberian Sun

Tiberian Sun ships a bunch of partly broken C&C/RA1 units in voxel form. Westwood probably used them for early engine tests as well.

Red Alert 2

"Kirov reporting!"

Will there be a Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 mod?

Time will tell. Sooner or later, time will tell...

This is the second best C&C game way better then RA3 the only one I like better is C&C3.
And who cares about graphics if the game is fun then graphics are irrelevant.

Hey, I got a fat problem on my The First Decade Red Alert 2: Yuris Revenge. Every time I start the game, it shows the launcher, and then it is black. Seconds later it moves back to my desktop like nothing happened? Does anyone know the reason for this?

Thanks.

I heard others have the same problem.You should install it again,because its lack of some files to run this game.
Hope you can play soon.
