Open-Source reimplementation of Westwood’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert game engine, updated to use the hardware acceleration of modern video cards using OpenGL and OpenAL for sound playback. It runs natively on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The game was designed with modifiability in mind, but is not identical to the original. Campaigns and mods made for the legacy game won't work out of the box.

Frozen under fog stabilizes. Lot's of paper-cuts have been fixed. We are heading towards a new stable release soon. Help testing and get a sneak peak of the next OpenRA installment.

The -2 is a re-release because the Windows packaging scripts failed at first.

Changelog

  • Restored ALT+F4 aka "rage-quit button" for Windows again.
  • Replaced the burning transport helicopter with rocks on Athena
  • Fixed offsets and muzzle flashes for RA and C&C. Thanks to Reaperrr!
  • Added location of clients and servers using a local GeoIP database:

This should help you find opponents for a fine match without lag.

  • Reworked frozen actors to support tooltips and orders.
  • Fixed a rare crash with HackyAI bots.
  • Revamped the explosions and impact sounds in Red Alert. Thanks to Reaperrr!
  • Fixed FPS text only visible together with the performance graph and adjusted positions.
  • Balanced snipers so that they won't even attempt to shoot at everything else than infantry to not reveal their position.
  • Fixed Kill/Death statistics when husks are involved (they counted twice before).
  • Fixed the brightness for the C&C snow theatre. Thanks to Reaperrr!

  • Fixed muzzle flashes drawn behind the unit.
  • Fixed cash ticks being visible through the fog of war.
  • Added --map-hash to the OpenRA.Utility.exe command line tool. Thanks to Dan9550!
  • Fixed a crash when joining the dedicated servers and choosing starting units.
