Red Alert 2 YR: New Horizons

News

New Horizons is a mod made in tribute to the classic real time strategy game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge, originally made by Westwood Studios. New Horizons vastly expands the original game with an emphasis on realism, while at the same time preserving the elements that made Red Alert 2 unique.

Full Release Version 1.0. Has been tested to run on multiple versions of windows, on multiple systems all the way up to Windows 10, including via LAN.


Thanks to the efforts of the Ares developers (Alex), Ares software update to version 1.0 has reinstated the game's original Save & Load functionality!
I have implemented the latest version of this software, as well as finalised the draft version of New Horizons, and can confirm through initial tests so far
that the Save & Load functionality does seem to work. One thing to note from what I can tell so far is once you click to load a saved game it can take a while to load,
(no loading bar to guage loading progress) but it Does load.


Notes: at the moment, Some AI teams take time to start full base production, but eventually they all do.

INSTRUCTIONS: save folder, sort files by 'type', then all 'applications' files select one by one, right click, go to properties, go to compatibility, and set to run compatibility mode for
Windows XP service pack 3, or preferably Windows 7 (But Not higher than 7 for technical issues related to Windows). Do this for all file type 'application', as well as 'Syringe'. Now Launch the game using 'RunAres' (you may want to create a shortcut on your desktop).
Also, you may need to allow/make exceptions on any security software you may have, that's it. Enjoy!

LAN is functional (and awesome!), this has been tested on Windows systems as high as Windows 7 and 10! It may be necessary to change the serial number in the Regedit (computer's registry), and depending on the computer it may be necessary as a failsafe to install the original disk
to create that registry, though it may also just be a case of saving the folder in the game's original preferred folder. (this would need to be google'd)

Credits-

New Horizons was made possible with open sourced
materials from such brilliant modding resource sites
as Project Perfect Mod, ModEnc, Revora Forums, CnCNet
and poorly-translated dark corners of the internet
riddled with who knows how many computer viruses.
With special thanks for the advice and support from
the members of the PPM forum, and of course those who
have worked on the code for Ares. And of course a
special thanks to my 2nd in command Kristine,
who supported me throughout the project, as well as
a variety of 80s music, Trance music, and a s**tload
of coffee.

I hope you enjoy playing this mod in all it's glory,
and if you are interested in my other project then
feel free to search #OfficialTROTL ;)

New Horizons is a mod developed by
Liam S. Blades in tribute to the original Command & Conquer series
created by Brett Sperry and Joseph Bostic

Yes that would be the Tu-160 (a.k.a. 'White Swan', a.k.a. 'Blackjack') drops a nuclear warhead, and flees from the explosion (hopefully to safety avoiding anti-aircraft fire). The plane Does return though. The idea is to provide a strategic balance; if you could build multiple of them then it would be overpowered, and this prolonged bombing run limits how fast the aircraft can return, reload, and hence be ready for another nuclear bombing run. It's meant to be used in a reserved manner, almost like owning a superweapon.

Yes I can confirm this, but there is a good reason for it. For example, you could build a BMP-2, with a BMP-2 Icon, yet others that have the same Icon (but you may notice are far more expensive in-game) will have been augmented by coming out of the factory pre-loaded with a squad of fully-equipped soldiers.

The same goes with various transport units, and naturally, the more expensive the transport 'duplicate', you know it will come with more expensive units pre-loaded and ready for you.

Note: The AI take advantage of this too! ;)

Hey there thanks for the feedback, yes I always think better too much than too little choice haha.

As for publishing in the YR district, the only reason it may not be is I don't know how... Any advice on how to move it?
