It Came From Red alert! is a mod that brings the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert into Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge. All versions require Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge V1.001. The current, and likely final, version is Pre-release Candidate 1 (PRC1) which does not require any additional community patches. 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.

(Newest December 2012 Version) After four beta releases (1,2,2.5 and 3) the number of reported bugs had flatlined, as such I was planning to release a final version called “Release Candidate 1". Unfortunately I had a PC issue which meant I lost all my installed programs, though I still had all my backed up data. There was a lot of awkward setting up involved in creating the mod and as my interest in modding C&C games was almost non-existent at that stage I kept putting off setting everything back up. Five years later and I'm not really into modding anything anymore but I had this newer, unfinished version of ICFRA sitting around doing nothing which I thought was a bit silly. As such I've opted to rename all the "Release Candidate 1" references to "Pre-release Candidate 1" and release the mod as it is. There won't be any further versions unless there's something significantly wrong with this one. See the description for a changelist and a list of things that were never finished.

Woah. This mod got updated? That's a relief. So this is the last version, if I understood it right from the description? Oh and thanks for removing the NPatch necessity: It couldn't install.

It should be the last version yes. I just don't have the stuff setup to work on it any more or the software to do it, but I thought I should release this version anyway as it's got some pretty important fixes and refinements.

I googled the error message and it suggests you need to run the game as an administrator or with Windows 98 compatibility mode enabled. Though I also have Windows 7 x64 and haven't encountered the error even without run as admin or compatibility enabled.
