Rise of the Reds – or ROTR for short – improves upon the C&C Generals formula while also adding its own distinct elements to it. Most notably, the mod adds two completely new factions, the tank-heavy Russian Federation and the defence-oriented European Continental Alliance. In addition, the three original factions China, USA and GLA have been greatly expanded and redesigned in a variety of ways, with several new units, buildings, powers and abilities to explore and combine in your in-game tactics.

NOTE TO ALL USERS - YOU DO NOT NEED 1.1 TO INSTALL 1.2
Everything included in 1.1 is also included in 1.2 for your convenience, so this is all you need!

since have already patched up to 1.1 do i have to remove the whole mod, re-install and apply 1.2 directly or will it install properly on top of 1.1? Don't have time to try this till get back home..that bout 12 more hours to go :(

The installer patches over the existing files. You do not need to completely re-install the mod.

What the good man said is quite correct. Though you don't need 1.1 to have 1.2, it won't hurt either, it'll just overwrite what it needs to.

Hello I have the rotr beta 1.1
its the best mod I have ever seen and , I have seen about 10 so far including the top ones like destructive forces and contra, MEC, and Blitz Krieg

basically is there a way I can view the INi Files (if indeed there are any)
I love to play around with things on my own version, such as make plane formations large for huge air strikes,
by toggling stuff in the object creation list.

I tried using final big but it does not seem to show up,
have you used somthing else?
If indeed you don,t want people to edit your game I can respect that, but I just love to toggle values, and weapon power etc.

so if its ok, please let me know what file viewer i need to edit these things in rotr

thanks

Its nice mod, i like it. But i cant see the new structures (patch 1.2) in game. I have first decade. What wuold i do?

Well, I guess I've posted it in just about every single other RotR comments section on Moddb, so why stop now?
You can't see the structures because they don't come with the patch. They happened to share the same update purely by chance. Check the changelog to see exactly what the patch adds.

This patch is to fix some issues that 1.1 missed and some that 1.1 caused. This isn't a content patch, it's a bug patch.

the EU Superweapon is very similar to the particle cannon, I believe more powerfull!

The Solar Blast's big difference is that it is a pulse and not a beam that can be moved around, plus the effects will be considerably updated from what you see in the video. It will have its strengths and weaknesses just as every other superweapon - or any other game element for that matter - does.

besides GLA BM 21 GRAD there is no other new vehicle from GLA that we have knowledge , right!?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
CommanderJRB
CommanderJRB

Correct. While the GLA will obviously get (a lot) more, it hasn't been revealed yet. The current demand (and supply) has been mostly for and of ECA and Russian units, and there's heaps in storage just waiting to see the light of day. But we do have to fill the large gaps between the releases, so I'm afraid you'll only get a trickle of renders.

From what I understand so far, ECA don't have a airfield, it's final or later an update !?
It's related to history right!?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
CommanderJRB
CommanderJRB

The ECA do not have an airfield with runways, but I expect them to get a structure for building and maintaining their Tiger II helicopters and, in the case of General Charles, VTOL assets. Think of it as a helipad if you must, though I don't believe that it will work quite this way. It hasn't been officially announced, and will probably be so in a later update, and should arrive at the same time as the rest of the ECA if that is the case. But it's fairly easy to interpolate its existence.

allright then... thanks

from what we know so far and what we can expect from ECA and GLA, wich seems to be the most powerfull!?

I now it's still early, still the question remain =P

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

They'll be different, just as all factions are different. Ideally we will balance them so that no-one is more powerful than anyone else. This is unlikely to happen in the first release but will be accomplished in the final patched versions of 0.2. We'll do our best in the mean time but balancing things to a fine point while development is still ongoing is, as AaronAsh once said, a rather Sisyphean task, so don't expect balance miracles until we get to the destination.

About ECA, the pandur! amphibious maybe!? anyone agree|?

And the cobra-neutron tank, what kind of fire weapon is it? I dont understand the neutron thing very well!

We don't take any suggestions at the moment, as well have everything very well planned out.

The inclusion of the cobra into RotR is currently undecided.

1.2 is all you need - everything in 1.1 is also included in 1.2 by default.

Ahh good stuff. Though I've encountered an unusual error.
I Follow the readme and install RotR correctly, when I run RotR from the start menu however (All of the options, Quick Start Windowed Mode etc.) an error message comes up on the RotR loading screen, something like "A Serious error has been detected". Any ideas on what the problem is?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
CommanderJRB
CommanderJRB

Serious errors will usually occur because the game hasn't been installed or patched right. Are you sure that Zero Hour is patched to 1.04, Generals is patched to 1.08, you have the SWR beta of Rise of the Reds installed, and that you have no other mods (save ShockWave, Generals Classic or WarGames) installed in your Zero Hour folder?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Unpatched may be what's causing the problem then, I've not long reinstalled Zero hour and I don't really play any mods (However, I'm willing to make an exception for this one). Thanks.

*Sigh*
Read the documentation. It isn't written for fun or because we have nothing better to do. The ECA and GLA are not finished yet. The current release is a work-in-progress beta release, not the finished product. They will be added in at an undefined future stage when GLA has been brushed up to a state where it fits in along the other sides and when ECA has been sufficiently completed to be a functional side.
Also, it might seem like nit-picking, but the Russian side in the mod is the Russian Federation, and they are distinctly not Soviet or in any way communist.

Glad you like it! However, I personally do no work on the mod itself save testing; I'm just the PR guy, who has been given access to the internal forums to better answer your questions. All compliments for the mod should be addressed to Hunter, Comr4de, AaronAsh, Rade, Nem, Failure, Vidar, Mylo, Rayburn and all the other members of the RotR team, who can all be found on the forums. However, I'll pass on the compliments, and thank you for them indeed - they're what keeps the team motivated to keep on going.

Hi nick5969,
If you haven't tried it already, go through a complete clean out and reinstall of Zero Hour and Rise of the Reds on your computer, following exactly the directions here:
Wiki.falloustudios.net
Most issues with the mod are caused by conflicts with other things in the Zero Hour folder or closing the command prompt window that pops up - when you play the game, don't touch the black screen, as it's what makes the mod work (by activating and deactivating it) and if you stop it while it's busy there's a good chance you'll break the mod!
If the problem persists I suggest that our official support forums:
Forums.swr-productions.com
Will provide you much better technical help than I can.

Two questions:
1. How do you make an icon for the mod?
2. Can I have both Shockwave and RotR at the same time?

I think you mean a shortcut? Easiest way is to go to C: (or whatever drive you use)\Program Files\EA Games\Generals Zero Hour or \The firtst decade\Generals(tm) Zero Hour, something like that and look for a executable called rotr or something (haven't ROTR installed here, so can't give the exact name right now) then right mouse click, copy to, desktop (create shortcut)...
Oh and read teh manuals and stuff, I personally get annoyed by how many times I read how I have to install this mod and Shockwave (both from SWR), so I can't really imgine so many people missed that out!
BTW SWR team, you guys really doing a great job on your Generals ZH mod's!!!!
