OK I give up since I don't have even the slightest idea of how to write html code....

EASB Hour is a mod dedicated to bringing SOME elements from C&C Generals: Zero Hour into the Yuri's Revenge.

It USED TO BE a stupid mod throwing turrets, launching tomahawks and doing other weird things. But things have changed.
It is now a fully operational mod featuring new concepts and new ideas.
And indeed, as neither of the developers is willing to do mapping work we don't have new missions and new maps. And so is the terrain. Would appreciate if some mappers can join us.
*: Now we do have mappers anyway but whether there will be missions hasn't been decided yet.
Also we use NP_EXT instead of Ares, which means that the save/load mechanism is completely functional. So making missions can indeed be worthwhile, I think.

Personally I believe we don't need Ares. It's functions are mostly fancy but useless stuff and it doesn't run normally on my Win8 laptop.

We have three factions in this mod: the U.S. sporting her laser and drone technology and fast reaction ability, China with a fetish for ECM and unconventional weapons, and Russia depending on their massive tank arsenal to achieve victory. Perhaps we have gone too far from the original ZH settings...

Now the mod is almost completed and we have decided to release a beta version in the near future to change people's idea about EASB Hour from the stupid turret-throwing Alpha releace...

So please just wait! And thank you for caring about this mod.

Oh my pathetic broken English...

Since our "developer team" just have too few members when compared with all those epic mods' devs, the development of EASB Hour is much slower than them. Hope all of you understand...
And we can't even make a beautiful(and readable) news bulletin...Pathetic.


Currently we have finished the units and structures for all three factions except heroes.
So, here is a unit list. Grey name indicates that it's not finished.

US
Infantry: Ranger/Missile Defender/Engineer/Pathfinder/Colonel Burton
Vehicles: Chinook/Crusader/Sheridan/Sentry Drone/Humvee/Avenger/Ambulance/Tomahawk Launcher/Comanche/Dragonslayer UGV/Railgun Platform/Mobile Construction Paladin
Aircraft: Raptor/Nighthawk
Unbuildable Units: Mobile SA-2/2S1 Gvozdika/CNG Tank/Drone Carrier/SU-152-80 Tank Destroyer/Outdated Battlemaster/Outdated Gattling Tank/Waterdragon Tank/Dragonslayer UGV's little accompany drone/Navy SEAL

China
Infantry:Red Guard/Tank Hunter/Engineer/Hacker/Black Meiying Lotus
Vehicles: Supply Truck/Battlemaster/Gattling Tank/Listening Outpost/Dragon Tank/ECM Tank/Inferno Cannon/Overlord Tank/Project 571/Troop Crawler/Helix/Mobile Construction Overlord
Aircraft: J-8/MiG1.44
Unbuildable Units: Propaganda Tower/Fake Battlemaster/Fake Overlord Tank/Officer/Artillery Shell

Russia
Infantry: Conscript/Anti-Tank Trooper/Engineer/Natalius
Vehicles:Supply Truck/T-80U/Thor-M1/Assault Bike/BMP/IMR-80 Field Engineering Vehicle/Obj.279/Assault Tank/Mi-8 Artillery Spotter/Mi-28 Havoc/Mobile Construction Vehicle
Unbuildable Units: T-55/Tank Wreck/Rescued Tankman
Oh and should we implement Russian Aircraft?

AI untouched since alpha release(!). Remained stupid.

Terrain and civillian structures remained untouched. Maybe we should find some public assets?....The original one sucks anyway.

EVA voice added with sounds from Generals units and general EVA.

Superweapons and support powers: Grey name indicates that it's not finished or needs rework.

US: Reinforcement Beacon(Barracks)/Chinese Reinforcement(UN Observation Post) /Russian Reinforcement(UN Observation Post)/Particle Cannon(Particle Cannon Uplink)
China:Propaganda Tower Deployment(Propaganda Center)/Fake Units(Weapon Research Center)/Artillery Barrage(Weapon Research Center) /Nuclear Missile(Nuclear Missile)
Russia:Vodka Overdose(Conscript Station)/Grandpa of All Bombs(Tech Center)/????/Orbital Downpour(Giant Switch)

Missions&Plot;: We are both unwilling to do mapping work so...So we don't need a plot as there won't be a mission to feature it. But ANYWAY. We DO HAVE a plot.
Maps: Ditto
Music: We are not Jack-of-all-trade enough to do this on our own so don't expect original soundtrack please. Musics are just from the Generals: Zero Hour, or from the Internet.
Unit Voiceover: We don't need this anyway. And we can do it ourselves since I speak Chinglish so well.
Balance: We are doing intensive rebalance work now but we may need some players to actually test the balance...So we decided to release a beta version in the near future.
Internal Errors: Awwwww....

So much for this.

After some time the game comes after the construction of each unit or each building the comment "new building options"( new Construktion bug). It's HalloKrokovery annoying.
Any change in the evamd.ini
48 = EVA_ConstructionComplete
; 49 = EVA_NewConstructionOptions
50 = EVA_InsufficientFunds
The tomahawk Launcher has a bad projectile. The country If you about randomly in battle, you sometimes have no players on the map, because there are only 2 countries.

[General]

From the help file of Npatch.
NewPlayableCountries=1 ;this is NOT the total number of countries in the game, but the amount of countries you added!
NOTE: If your mod removes countries, you can also use a negative value here to prevent the game from selecting the removed countries as random!

Or is there a newer version?

Oh thank you again!
If you're talking about that alpha version downloadable here, then you're right. We did make many weird mistakes there.
And now the mod has changed greatly from the Alpha version.
For now, we're replacing some problematic shps and vxls and trying to rebalance the game...
Anyway we'll try to solve as many bugs as possible.

For Yuri's revenge Windows 8.1 play compatibility settings
Works in full-screen mode and windowed mode

gamemd.exe
Change settings for all users
Run as administrator
16-bit of color mode
Compatibility with Windows XP SP3

ra2md.exe
Change settings for all users
Run as administrator
16-bit of color mode
Compatibility with Windows XP SP3

Yuri.exe
Change settings for all users
Run as administrator
16-bit of color mode
Compatibility with Windows 98

In full-screen mode, you can switch back and not into another program.
If you do only str + alt + delete and program helps stop.

In windowed mode, the buttons are sometimes missing, then you must move the window. The button will be visible. In the running game, there are but no errors.

ra2md.ini

[Video]
AllowHiResModes = no
AllowVRAMSidebar = no
VideoBackBuffer = no
StretchMovies = no
; here like you need it:
ScreenWidth = 1920
ScreenHeight = 1080

I installed have RA2 and Yuri with compatibility mode Windows 98 (setup.exe)
I do not recommend in the folder C:\Program files (x 86) to install.
Better (for example
C:\Westwood\AR2) so that you can easily install modifications or maps.

Many thanks!
Settings about compatibility mode seems to be the key.

If you want run YR without WinXP. You should right click ra2md.exe -> compatibility -> reduced color mode = 16bit OR right click ra2md.exe -> compatibility -> run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 98/Windows Me.

If you use Ares patch. You should right click Syringe.exe -> compatibility -> run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 98/Windows Me AND right click RunAres.bat -> compatibility -> run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 98/Windows Me.

Good luck and keep your work.

Win8 fix for RA2YR and TS:

Snagged this from the Tiberian Sun section and updated for Yuris (haven't tried ra2 yet, but it seems to be working):
1. Copy the directory Red Alert 2 (Typically found in C:\Program Files (x86)) to somewhere outside of Program Files
2. Download the graphics patch from Stuffhost.de and extract it into the directory that you just moved
3. Rename Yuri's Revenge to gamemd.exe, then run the patch to patch the game (likewise for ra2, rename to game.exe)
4. Download Bitpatch.com zip file and extract the files to the directory that you've patched the game in
5. Edit aqrit.cfg in notepad and change these two settings to 1 as in below:

NoVideoMemory = 1

forcedirectdrawemulation = 1
6. Create a shortcut to the game and move it to your desktop
7. Go to properties and in 'Target' add at the end after " add -win
example Target: "C:\Users\Roberto\Desktop\Red Alert 2\gamemd.exe" -win
note the space between gamemd.exe" and -win
8. In the same Properties Tab:

Compatibility : Win Xp Service pack 2 (Seems to be most stable)

Reduced colour mode : 16bit

Run as Administrator
9. (Optional) Edit .ini file to change the resolution
10. Play the game

Notes: I've noticed that once you've open it, you can't alt-tab out, it just seems to break Windows.
The screen will be very small until a game begins, around it will be black that will flicker back to your desktop when you move over it, do not click into that black or it'll break Windows
To exit the game, exit through the menu, not through Ctrl-Alt-Del
It seems to be working, but I haven't had the chance to play online, also after you patch the game you can name it back to Red Alert 2 or Yuri's Revenge
