The Red Alert, developed by the mod team of C&C Labs (makes of The Forgotten and C&C All Stars, undertakes one of the most ambitious tasks in C&C modding: to recreate and improve upon an original game. The mod, in development for Red Alert 3, is based off the original Red Alert's art and game play. Not aiming to model realism, it instead endeavors to bring the addictive heart-pounding game play of the classic to a world-class 3D engine, to bring back all of the classic units, including those from Aftermath, and to recreate the very "feel" of its art style. With The Red Alert, epic tank battles, MiG attack runs, and Cruiser strikes will be more than just fond memories — they will all be weapons in your arsenal once again! It was released on September 21, 2011 and was ranked the number one mod on Moddb.

Why should that be included? The fog of war matches RA1 behavior.

Deadpikle Sep 22 2011 replied:

The black fog of war (IE not seeing "anything" on the map before exploring it) does, but the fog of war where you only see terrain and not what is going on in x area is not RA1'listic.

Unfortunately the mod doesnt load for me. I tried opening it using the -ui command on a shortcut, and I even used the original shortcut that came with the install. I have the Steam version of the game and I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit. Every time I load the mod using the -ui command, it will show the game loading, but then the ui comes back up. >>_>>

-Edit: Nevermind, I got it working...after clicking on play several times during the looping ui. A bit odd. Must be just me.

Likely, I've got the Steam version of RA3 as well (Win7 x64 also) and it launched just fine for me here.

Uprising does not support mods, so it only works with the regular Red Alert 3.

Your original install of RA3 might corrupted (it is legit, right?). Try reinstalling RA3.

I can't seem to get this to launch. I have the steam version of RA3 and when I launch via "The Red Alert\" icon, it shows the RA3 splash launch, and then just closes that down. Then nothing, Ideas?

I don't have steam, but I don't think it matters where you put the files, so long as the config to them is correct. Someone else suggested doing this:

Add -modconfig "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Red Alert 3\Mods\TheRedAlert\config.txt" to your STEAM launch options replace the quoted part with your directory path. Worked great on windows 7, replacing the bit above to point to the correct directory.
