D-day! a mod that needs no introduction... but just in case:

D-day is a Would War II TC mod for the highly popular game Red Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge, is the largest & longest running mod for RA2 to date. With hundreds of highly detailed & accurate units from pre World War 2 to a hypothetical post war. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to fight the good fight on land, sea & air. There are eight playable countries in D-day, as well as several other non-playable ones.

The playable sides are:

  • America
  • Great Britain
  • France
  • Soviet Union
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Hungary
  • Japan

The pride of D-day is the DTX terrain, which completely changes RA2’s cartoony look into a gritty WW2 landscape that has been heavily researched to create an authentic atmosphere. D-day also features maps of such places as Berlin, Stalingrad, Kursk, El Almain & even New York! Created using battlefield maps & period photos to get the highest accuracy possible.

japbase Got Tanks!? Japanese Fortifications

Continuing on from the last news post here are several animations of the Japanese buildings.

Note the MCV which was made by converting the vxl to a 3D model with VXLSE, a very useful but underused feature of the program.

I'm a bit disappointed with this production anim, I originally planed to make the crane pick up the create & turn 270o & place it where the chimneys are, however I realised to late that it wouldn't be possible with this design because of the way the game handles production anims, so I had to simplify it.

Yes the whole building rotates. Luckily in real life it was stationary most of the time scanning specific areas, otherwise I'd imagine the operators would get nauseous quickly!

Hi there,

I tried following the installation instructions as laid out in the ARES download and the mod's readme, but I just got the vanilla version of Yuri's Revenge playing.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled both RA2 and Yuri's Revenge and this time installed the Launch Base programme to get around having to install ARES myself, but the mod isn't showing up on the Launch Base app at all.

How/were did you install the D-day files? If you got the vanilla version of YR & didn't even see the D-day loading screen or menu then you've install the files in the wrong place.

Launch Base is no longer supported within the community and dose not work with D-day or the latest versions of Ares.

I just left them in the unzipped folder and put that in the 'mod' folder Launchbase made since I had no idea it wasn't supported anymore.

I'm reinstalling everything, and it seems to me the installation order for the mod is;
1. Extract the folder 0.3RC1 to the RA2 directory (My YR doesn't install into a separate one)
2. Drop the ecachemd45.mix, expandmd45.mix & dday.pkt files into the RA2 directory.
3. Just open it with the included .BAT file

Is this broadly correct?

Yes, you also need to patch YR to v1.001 for Ares to work.

Got it working yesterday. Brilliant fun, though I've noticed that enemy AI seems a lot more active than any friendly computer players. Still 10/10 though.

D-Day "See You On The Beach" ****: An Invasion Ten Years In The Waiting D-Day is a project that has been in the works longer than some players have been playing Yuri's Revenge. Since the time that D-Day began to take shape back in 2002, The West has completed it's "War on terror", an African American was elected as POTUS, the Arab World rose up in revolt and Social media sites took over our lives. Indeed the D-Day mod has been in the works for a long time, but finally through the hard-work of it's…
