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.

GameFront and ModDB is available to no one but US residents, actually. They blocked not only a few countries, as they've mentionned. Canada is apparently on their "unblocked" list even though we're blocked.

They're being real jerks, not to mention liars. Not going to GameFront ever again. Not giving ad revenue to jerks and liars, especially not when I can't use their service.

ABSOLUTELY AGREE. GameFail couldn't (uh) fail anymore right now (or could it?)

Funny, as a Netherlands resident I can download from both sites. Unless the Netherlands are suddenly a colony of USA =P

Why not continue to use them and just adblock the hell out of anything on their site? They still have to put up server power, and they don't get any cash out of you because you don't see the ads.

You people need to learn how to use a IP hider to make foreign material downloadable! I'm from Canada without an IP hider and got it immediately.

There is only so much we can fix unfortunatly.
This engine often punishes us for beeing creative basicly.

I've noticed for other mods though there are engines available to increase the playability of the game. is one available for zero hour that you guys could use that would allow your mod to be better played? sorry if this doesn't make sense. i am still ignorant to much of how modding works

also i think what could help is if the AI would use more of its units. i find that factions like china and USA on brutal will build a hundred units but will leave 90% at their base

ROTR does NOT work ONLINE with W7. (Zero hour does work ONLINE with W7).
My mate and i have installed everything properly with all the latest patches (Z/H 1.04, ROTH 1.8 and 1.801) and when were in the online lobby with Gamespy accounts we cant join games or it times out when we start a game. Our internets are fine and were running in XP SP3 compatibility mode with Firewalls off. When in the ROTR lobby, the games are all dull in colour and says "Failed to join game" or "Game is a different version" or "Error unable to connect to other players".

If anyone knows why this is happening you are a genius as we've tried everything inc reinstallation and nothing works. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...
