Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, brings Westwood Studios' popular real time strategy game, C&C: Red Alert 2 into the FPS pespective, using the w3d engine. You will be able to experience, first hand, what it feels like to fill the boots of an Allied GI battling the communist might of the Soviet Union, or a Soviet Conscript vowing to take back what was lost to the Allies during the first great war. Classic units return such as the versatile Allied IFV to the mighty Soviet Apocalypse Assualt Tank to the gargantuan Allied Aircraft Carrier to the mad Giant Squids. This game features all of the units and structures for the Allied and Soviet sides from both RA2 and the Yuri's Revenge Expansion. The Apocalypse is Rising Commander. Are you prepared for it? (Credit goes to everyone who has donated and contributed to this mod. We shall not let you down).
Improved download, repair, and patch support for TS:Reborn and RA:APB. Note: This installer can skip any .NET 4 Framework installation issues, but users will need to correct any problems by downloading and installing the .NET 4 Framework from Microsoft's own website.
These features (and others) have been improving as time goes on, and we will continue to introduce new features such as public statistics tracking, installing older versions of our games for nostalgic purposes, a chat lobby, and more.
Simply install the Launcher where you wish to install your games. Games will be downloaded into a subfolder of the Launcher's own installation directory. It will require administrator access to use.
1. If you already have any BHP releases installed, such as a copy of RA:APB 2.1.2, they will be detected and moved to the new location when you run the Launcher.
2. If you are looking to install a new release, simply select the game and click to Install the public build. If you've been given testing access, you can also Install the latest test build.
3. If you have a Bluehellproductions.com account, you can log in with that information. In the future that will be used for stats and more, and it is required to download test builds. If you don't have one, we encourage you to make one!
There is a chance that installation of the .NET 4 Framework "Client Profile" may fail depending on your computer configuration. You will be able to continue installation, however the Launcher may not run properly until you ensure you've got a working installation of the .NET 4 Client Profile. This is available directly from Microsoft, and you are not required to download the .NET 4 Full Profile -- just the Client Profile is sufficient and has the necessary libraries.
If your Launcher unexpectedly closes or displays any error messages, please let us know! You can find an error report in the folder where you installed it -- probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Bluehell Productions -- with the filename bhp_launcher_errors.log and then submit that error report, along with a short bug report to tell us how it happened, to our bug tracker
If any of the installed games have an error, you can submit them to our bug tracker, too! In the case of severe errors, game crash dumps will appear in your My Documents\BlueHell folder, in a debug subfolder for the particular game you were playing. So if you were playing RA:APB, find your crash log in My Documents\BlueHell\APBClient\debug -- you may be asked for these if we cannot reproduce your error.
