Post news RSS Hello? Want a new updated version of ICFRA?

So... here's a newer but still unfinished version of ICFRA!

Posted by on

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 so only tiny bits of work got done.

It's now five years and a couple of PC reinstalls since the last release and I'm not really into modding anything any more - 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.

The download page is here on ModDB. There is a change list in the description along with a copy of my to do list of things that were never completed. One of the main changes is that the mod doesn't need any additional community patches any more, it'll run with vanilla Yuri's Revenge v1.001.

There won't be any further versions unless there's something gamebreaking in this one.

This 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.
I recommend Red Alert (and Tiberian Dawn) fans check out OpenRA at

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.
