Post news RSS Ares trailer released!

With the extension patches created by the community, possibilities in Yuri's Revenge modding are greater than ever. Ares is one of those patches and recently, a promotional video has been released.

Following the path paved by pd's famous RockPatch, Ares fixes and enhances the Yuri's Revenge game engine in a variety of ways, allowing modders to expand the game with never before seen custom units.

However, unlike RockPatch and other exe patches, Ares does not modify the game's exe. Instead, Ares uses Syringe to inject its code into the game during runtime, leaving the original game unchanged, thus eliminating the need for backup exes or un-patchers.

The trailer shows some of features which modders can implement in their mods with Ares. Preview has been created using the latest beta of Mental Omega APYR and slightly modded Yuri's Revenge (for features which will not be present in the mod).

Official website:

NOTE: Certain features in the videos are only available in testing builds for now.

Westwood is dead. It is not here anymore! But on their drives and in their code C&C lives on! Ares is a mod that will pierce the heavens!

Ares is an expansion DLL, not a mod. But other than that, yeah.

Darn! That's my idea going to use it. I'm so sad. I think you can use custom alphalights.

Why do I all of a sudden have the urge to get back into RA2 modding?

Did you put a drug in that video or something?

A drug called Ares, that's why you have to inject it into your RA2. :P
