It Came From Red alert! is a mod that brings the original Red alert into Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge.
It requires Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge V1.001.
Beta Releases 1 and 2 do not require additional patches, Beta Release 2.5 requires Rock Patch 1.08SE for all features to work correctly, Beta Release 3 requires NPatch Special Edition #0019 or newer for all features to work correctly and Pre-release Candidate 1 does not require any additional patches.
ICFRA! has had over 86000 downloads across its various releases.

If you have difficulty uninstalling the mod then read this post.

The mod was started on 25th November 2006 and was first publicly announced on the 29th November 2006. Beta R1 was released on the 1st of December 2006 followed by BR2 on the 2nd of January 2007. Like BR2 before it work has immediately began on BR3, but some serious errors found in BR2 lead to an BR2.5 bugfixing release on the 7th of January. BR3 was released 14th October 2007.
Pre-Release Candidate 1 was released on 20th December 2012 so that the latest version of the mod from my computer was actually available to people.

The mod originally started as a coding-only mod so that I could play something resembling Red Alert with the newer interface features like right click scrolling and turned into something way beyond that. It's been consistently popular since the first version was released with a steady trickle of views and downloads even to this day.

Thank you all for the kind comments the mod has received over the years and I'm sorry I never managed to finish it, especially as it got so close to being totally done.

There were some articles in the "Features" section of the ICFRA ModDB profile that were written before ICFRA PRC1 was released so I have updated them.

The most important one is the uninstalling article as it was showing an out of date file list and an out of date screenshot of the deactivation prompt so I fixed those.

I also updated the about article and the version information article to include the information about PRC1.

Finally I've added a different format for the ICFRA PRC1 download, called PRC1z, which has the mod's files in a .zip file rather than using the .exe launcher created by XCC Mod Creator. If you already have the mod and it is working correctly you do not need to pay any attention to the new download, it's just for people who can't get the mod to run via the .exe version.
Please note that if you use the PRC1z version you are manually copying files into your game directory to install the mod and you will have to manually delete them to uninstall the mod. Instructions and a list of the mod's files are included in the download but you should probably backup your game install directory before installing the mod just to be safe. I am not responsible for you making a mess of your game directory!

The new format is here.
And of course the .exe launcher format is still available here.

I just wanted to say that this mod is superb. The building graphics are done very authentically and this mod really does re-create the feeling of the original Red Alert.
1 thing I noticed is that some of the sounds are a bit different from the original (like the defense turret). Unless you intended for the sounds to be arranged from unit to unit differently.

Just thought I'd say, that mod that Hijacked your assets? I went to their homepage for the sake of hearing their side of the story. I laughed so hard after I read their side. And I quote "...We had undergo recent media attack from some members of C&C networks, and dismissed it..." Heh.

It could be clashing with something - but have you tried exiting, telling it to remove the mod files and launching it again? Sometimes the launcher program doesn't add everything properly.

Well if something like that happens it normally means there's some remnant of another mod in the game folder or the new mod wasn't fully installed. I've known there be one occasion where the mod launcher application didn't add all the files correctly but that's genuinely once in years of modding so I'd imagine that's not it. I suppose it's feasible that the download could have been corrupted somehow.

It won't be NPatch related as having or not having NPatch just affects a few code things not graphics things.

All I can really think of is:
Is the RA2 folder clean of other mod remnants?
Is the downloaded file corrupt?
Is the game Yuri's Revenge and is it patched to version 1.001?
Does the game function as normal without the mod installed?

Yes its clean there where no mods installed before this one.
I really don't know but it shouldn't be.
Yes it is patch to version 1.001.
and yes it worked perfectly before the mod was installed.
Maybe you can tell me how I can get it uninstalled because that I can not do either the mod totaly messed up Yuris revenge!
I will think its suggestion number 2 that migt be the proplem!

The mod should offer to uninstall itself when you exit, presumably it's not worked properly or you've clicked the wrong option.
What you need to do is run the ICFRA launcher you downloaded and launch the game, when the main menu appears exit the game and click yes to quit.
You'll then get a Windows based popup box asking if you want to remove the ICFRA mod files so tell it that you do want to remove them, then click exit on the ICFRA launcher. That'll remove all the ICFRA files from the RA2 directory.

Very nice designs based on original C&C: Red Alert, that's all.
