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.

Gaaaaaah and my opinion flip-flops again. Maybe it was just the lighting in this video as compared to the last one, but things look a little more dynamic in this. I'll reserve final judgement for when I try it out.

Mad props for the remade montage though, just on principle.

That is my bad I guess, Sony Vegas can't balance the contast of the additional layer, it does look less darker when playing it using different players.

This one will also be replacing EA's logo, that one may have lower quality (blame VP60) but the contrast is just like the original.

I thought the bad contrast would be gone when uploaded to sites like youtube or moddb.

So I've uploaded on one my youtube channel as well here if you want to watch it with better contrast.

Not an actual HD format, but this is the one working without the dark contrast.

I'd say some parts are a bit dark.
Still, it always amazes me no matter how many times I watch it.

Yea I know, the software I use to create that trailer has some issues with rendering and balancing the contrast.

Well glad you all enjoyed it :P

Bluehell man, nice! I downloaded APB, and its pretty killer. Love Volkov's cannon animations.

Really looking forward to Apocalypse Rising, however.

Wish you used the standard RA camera, I think that's DEFINITELY a part of the experience... this new-age "rotate around the units like a monkey" just doesn't suit it.

Good job nevertheless!
