It Came From Red alert! is a mod that brings the original Red alert into Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge.
It requires Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge V1.001.
Beta Releases 1 and 2 do not require additional patches, Beta Release 2.5 requires Rock Patch 1.08SE for all features to work correctly, Beta Release 3 requires NPatch Special Edition #0019 or newer for all features to work correctly and Pre-release Candidate 1 does not require any additional patches.
ICFRA! has had over 86000 downloads across its various releases.
If you have difficulty uninstalling the mod then read this post.
The mod was started on 25th November 2006 and was first publicly announced on the 29th November 2006. Beta R1 was released on the 1st of December 2006 followed by BR2 on the 2nd of January 2007. Like BR2 before it work has immediately began on BR3, but some serious errors found in BR2 lead to an BR2.5 bugfixing release on the 7th of January. BR3 was released 14th October 2007.
Pre-Release Candidate 1 was released on 20th December 2012 so that the latest version of the mod from my computer was actually available to people.
The mod originally started as a coding-only mod so that I could play something resembling Red Alert with the newer interface features like right click scrolling and turned into something way beyond that. It's been consistently popular since the first version was released with a steady trickle of views and downloads even to this day.
Thank you all for the kind comments the mod has received over the years and I'm sorry I never managed to finish it, especially as it got so close to being totally done.
There were some articles in the "Features" section of the ICFRA ModDB profile that were written before ICFRA PRC1 was released so I have updated them.
The most important one is the uninstalling article as it was showing an out of date file list and an out of date screenshot of the deactivation prompt so I fixed those.
Finally I've added a different format for the ICFRA PRC1 download, called PRC1z, which has the mod's files in a .zip file rather than using the .exe launcher created by XCC Mod Creator. If you already have the mod and it is working correctly you do not need to pay any attention to the new download, it's just for people who can't get the mod to run via the .exe version.
Please note that if you use the PRC1z version you are manually copying files into your game directory to install the mod and you will have to manually delete them to uninstall the mod. Instructions and a list of the mod's files are included in the download but you should probably backup your game install directory before installing the mod just to be safe. I am not responsible for you making a mess of your game directory!
So... here's a newer but still unfinished version of ICFRA!
