An expansion/overhaul mod of epic proportions, with entirely rebalanced gameplay, expanded factions, new gametypes, graphical overhauls, and five new factions; stealth-based Confederate Revolutionaries, tower defense-inspired Atomic Kingdom of China, economy-focused Mediterranean Syndicate, DotA-esque Order of the Talon and spammy Electrical Protectorate.

It is. This one's broken.

By which I mean there's one tiny part of it that doesn't work quite as well as it should. Remember that this was at like 95% completion since around the release of CnC4.

The Auto Go jump is quite a wonderful animation! I love the wheels turning into the pistons.

I can't get it to work- I haven't had problems with the past mini-mods, but then again someone helped me put those in folder.

When I try to run the game with it now it says "Did you remember to build data?" on top of a huge list of errors.

I have ParadoxAchilles.big and ParadoxAchilles_3.0.skudef in a Paradox Achilles folder in the mods folder for RA3.

When I try to open the big file in notepad, it goes into "not responding".

I may just need to wait for someone who knows what they are doing to help- but any advice?

The skudef is suppose to tell the game what version the mod needs and the name of the mod file it needs.

i had your problem and i fix it like that

open the skudef file in the notepad
on the second line it must show
(add-big file ParadoxAchilles_1.0.big) or something like that
change the (1.0) to (3.0) and it may work

hope it helps

Okay, I don't mean to sound offensive, but I am going to be blunt.

On the whole, some nice work guys, but what lets it down is the Auto Go and the Hawker. The Hawker appears to have an audio glitch that makes it's voice echo, hopefully this has been fixed or the lines have been re recorded before release.

And the Auto Go...it's voice is terrible! It doesn't even sound Japanese! It's just awful to listen to, with each of it's lines coming close to Most Annoying Sound.

On the other hand, I do think the Achilles and Mychette have nice voices - the Achilles sounds French, and the Mychette genuinely sounds Russian, so top marks for those.

er... the hawker echo was in 2.2 as well right? i think i might be intentional, since it's an older jet.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

The Hawker voice being as it is represents the loud engines of the jet and distortions in communication gear- I think that units in normal RA3 also have such distortions, albeit to a lesser degree.

For the Hawker, the echo is intentional. I seem to remember that the guy who did the voice acting for it wanted to re-record the lines, but the effect will probably stay the same or similar.

For the Auto Go, I find that the voice is something that grows on you. Unfortunately Japanese women don't seem all that interested in providing voices at this point in time (i wonder why) but I kind of like the substitute we have. I would honestly like it if the lines could be re-recorded because they're a little too quiet and difficult to understand right now though.

If you want voice acting, you'd have your work cut out. Alas, voice actors are a hard find, because most mods will just recycle soundbites, so voice actors - amateur, first time or professional - are a hard find in mod communities.

Additional: I agree the effect for the Hawker needs to be changed. I'm all for making it sound like he's in the cockpit, but his lines do sound like a scrambled mess.

Ah! Glad you solved the problem. I was going to suggest deleting ParadoxAchilles.big and replacing it with the one from the file because I suspect the one in the .rar ends in 3.0 or something.... I'm pretty bad at troubleshooting sometimes.

I've been playing around on the mini-mod and found a lack of glitches outside of the Myech secondary- is that all thats bugged?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

No, it's primary is also bugged, the missiles should scatter like the V4's secondary.

About it's voice... I hate it, the quality is LOW, the worst part is that I know you can do better ("I rule ze skiez"). Hmm, gonna test it again and see if it really is that terrible.

I consider it better than what the very first Achilles voice sounded like. Then it sounded like a Canadian was randomly talking into your ear.

Hi, just downloaded Minimod 3.0! Ran into quite a bit of troubles though...

I can't load any skirmish games! (I tried deleting the skirmish.ini file, but it didn't fix it...) So I tried making a new account just for Paradox, but then it said "Did you remember to build data?" and then a long list of errors! This also happens when I try to change the resolution!

Any advice guys?

P.S. Keep up the good work! Can't wait for July 4th!

Rename the .big file to ParadoxAchillesTEST_1.0.big that should help.

Could someone tell me exactly where i save this file?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

On Windows XP, you save it in My Documents/Red Alert 3/Mods. If the /Mods folder doesn't exist, create it.

To play the mod, right-click the RA3 shortcut and add -ui to the end of the Target line. Then double-click on the shortcut. It should open up the Red Alert 3 Command Center. From there, just go to Game Manager and you should be able to play the mod.

Normally we have a Readme or at the very least a description with this info in it but this release is unusual in a lot of ways. :/

I did that and saved it to the mods folder but its a .rar file do i need to download anearlier version first? If so, which one?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

A .rar file is an archive. The files you actually want are inside. To open a .rar file, you need a program like WinRAR. The trial version is free, doesn't run out, and can be found on Google. Plenty of other people (especially modders) use the .rar format anyway so you may as well have it for future use.

With Red Alert 3 mods, you don't need to download previous versions. If you want 3.0, all you need to do is download 3.0. Good luck, have fun.

I suggest you use 7-Zip, it's not only faster and saver, but also understands alot more different archive formats.
