Yey! but I'm a bit confused... This doesn't have nothing to do with 1.82, right? Or is it 1.82?

No you're quite right LionDude, this is a result of the Public Beta Test versions on our forums (whieh everyone here could had joined in to get this early) to fix a few of the problems of 1.8. This is not to get confused with the next large patch 1.82, which includes new units and upgrades for everyone.

This version is 1.802, not 1.82.

In fact, this one contain only the two recent test builds and the new igla trooper and Viper Gunship.

Does this require 1.801 patch or is this a cumulative update?

Does this fix the issue of blocking operations? I've noticed that ROTR runs far slower on my machines than any other mod, especially after an accumulation of units (even offscreen). I imagine it's an issue with the AI, likely consuming far too many CPU cycles to allow the game to render smoothly for me.

out of plain curiosity...
what made you decide to remove a turret from the skyshield?
anything i missed?

I think it had something to do with the coding since it still worked even if you were low on power,That or to make it more similar to the real Skyshield.

Your first assumption is correct. Skyshield with 3 turrets used Stinger Site logic and it was impossible to make it shut down when you're low on power.

So since you have fixed all these bugs and such does this mean that you are gonna be concentrating on the generals now?

Again this is a Patch not to be confused with the 1.82 Release. The next version we are already developing (1.82) will contain more General specific units and features - after that yes we'll be focusing more on the Generals themselves - as well as Faction specific Navy.

Nice tweaks! Good job guys...

IMHO brutal enemy seems still too dumb for me. If you survive initial few waves, AI just build alot of building and units and becomes idle. Sometimes they attack, but attacks are easily defeated. Even buildins built by AI are frequently colliding with each other. It look really weird :D Bud still, this mod is simply amazing.

They can't really do much about the AI. And yes, it's not that hard to defeat. Basically you just need to protect your base well and eventually steamroll the AI. If you are bored of that, you can always add some self-imposed challenge to it, like keeping your casulties below 10 for the whole match.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who does stuff like this, course I typically go with things like 'don't let a single civilian building fall in that town,' or 'this unit(s) can't be used by me at all this game.'

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Yea. I also have the "no civilian building destroying" rule often. Also, try to stay in the profile of each faction (like the low casulties for USA and ECA).

I must be a total dummy....I have just purchased the CnC Ultimate Edition because my DVD version of "The 1st Decade" crapped out....I cannot get ROTR to run....I downloaded Zero Hour from Origin using their client, then downloaded/installed 1.8 and patch 1.802, all in same directory as specified, but when I open ROTR, it only goes to regular Zero Hour...
HELP!

Do you have the last patch of ZH? 1.04
And dont forget to install the last of ROTR 1.802 you have to
Step zero - Of course install ZH with the last patch 1.04
First step - install ROTR 1.8
Second step - install the patch of the ROTR 1.801
Third step - install the last patch of the ROTR 1.802
...to start ROTR double-click on the ROTR_Lnchr.exe(located in the folder of ZH)
Good-luck, and have a fun :)

Congratulations, EA just scammed you like a lot of people here. CnC games of the Ultimate edition are not compatible with any mods no matter how hard we try to get them working. You are better off getting the 1st Decade again.

One tweak i would like to see is that when you want to place a building where your units already are, its highlighted red. It would be better if it goes green and those units just scatter away from that position during building. Saves time
