A quick (and simple) guide on how to open the RA3 Control Centre.

Posted by Com-Link on May 10th, 2009
Basic Other.

The RA3 Control Centre is needed to access the Game Browser, which is the Replay/Mod launch centre.

There are 2 ways how to open the Control Centre.

1: By going via the Start menu.
The Control Centre should be easily accessible via Start if you used the default install. For those who customized there installation:
Try to find out in which Start-folder you made the Start Shortcut. Then just follow the steps below, and shown on the image.
How to open via Start

























Start -> (all) Programs -> Electronic Arts (default!) -> Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 -> Control Centre note: this is the DEFAULT!!! the map "Electronic Arts" will be created at install, but if you selected another map, search there!



2: Via the DESKTOP shortcut.

If you can't find the Control Centre, you can always try to edit your DESKTOP SHORTCUT (the shortcut you double-click to start RA3, located on your desktop).

How to open via Shortcut




































How this works:
1: Right-click on the shortcut.
2: Select "Properties"
3: Recognize the TARGET LINE
DEFAULT EXAMPLE: "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Red Alert 3\RA3.exe"
4: Add " -ui" behind it.
Example: "D:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Red Alert 3\RA3.exe" -ui
NOTE: There needs to be a single space between the (...).exe" and the -ui!!!
If you just put " -ui" behind it and press "Apply", you'll be alerted that you entered a wrong target. With the space, it will work!
5: Press "Apply". If you DON'T receive any warnings, and the Properties screen just closes, it should be okay...
6: Double-click your shortcut. You should see the RA3 Control Centre popping up.

Now, go to Game Browser, and then switch to the "Mod" tab.
Then select the mod you want to play, and Have fun!
