Endlessly roaming through the Space, an alien fleet is closing to a blue planet. Its inhabitants, blissfully unaware of the upcoming threat, are struggling with the chaos they have to face everyday. And yet, it will all soon change. The world will finally become united against a common enemy. The Earth will never be the same anymore. But what will this war bring? Do the humans stand any chance against such a foe? Will everyone willingly join to fight the alien thread? And why, do the aliens seem to look so human-like?...

0 comments by mevitar on Nov 2nd, 2013

Some time has passed since the last news update, this time it will be an Essence-exclusive news post.

At first a defense contractor, Essential Tech was the one behind the first successful counterattacks against the alien forces. As they were the only ones that seemed to capable to succeed, others soon joined, and this force became humanity's last hope.

As usual, click on the image to enlarge.

Essence Hyperion Attack Craft and Athena Hypersonic Interceptor

Essence Tartarus Subterrene and Icarus AMS

Essence Base Defenses and an EMP Drone

I should start working on Vintarids soon, since i neglected them a bit, and next update will probably be Vintarid-exclusive.

So Mev:
basically
The Vintarid are more focused towards assault, particularly in Air power
Essence is a turtler with strong armour and slow units
and Paladin are manipulative and more adaptable
Is that a close statement

Essence is very defensive and slow, has good armor and very good expansion capabilities, able to fortify themselves anywhere they go. They are also the best infantry spammers.

Vintarids are very aggressive, strongly focusing on air force, and they can easily make their units instanly appear anywhere on the map. The most important thing, though, is that they need to attack in order to get resources (their "harvester" isn't really the most efficient), and can take over enemy units.

Paladins focus mostly on what i call "keeping the enemies at bay for as long as possible". They shouldn't attack directly due to their little numbers and high costs, they need to use support powers or special abilities their units have to even the odds (easy, since many of them are area effects).

I think vintarid should have the stealth/invisible technology.

Stealth isn't a specific tech here like in other games. There are many ways to make your units unseen by the enemy, and all sides have something that is "stealthed", but there's no specific tech for that.

And lots of stealth doesn't fit Vintarids anyway, believe me.

Sorry that i'm so late, i don't check here often unless i have an update.

1. You need to have your Yuri's Revenge patched to 1.001 version.
2. You have to install NPatch Special Edition or Autumn Edition from this site Vk.cncguild.net (Special Edition recommended). It should come with a patcher program that will patch your exe automatically. DO NOT download the MDK, it's for modders, not players.
3. Put DD_Install.exe into your RA2/YR folder and run it, it will extract the files where you have the exe. If you later want to uninstall it, a DD_Uninstall.exe file should appear in the folder.
4. Run your Yuri's Revenge normally.

However, i have to remind you that the "demo" (i called it Demo because i wanted to have 3 D's in the name :P ) is really old, and next release will be completely different in all aspects.
