SWR.net is ready to host your games, connecting you with ROTR players around the world. Without further ado, we present you the download link as well as a little appetiser below.

Key features of our new release are:

- Drastically reduced lag in AI matches
- Integrated SWR.net multiplayer service
- New map pack integrated in the main installation
- Vastly remodelled Russian and GLA faction
- Several new units and abilities for all factions
- Support for the Ultimate Collection version on Origin.
- All official maps revised to be more balanced.
- Unique voice overs for many old and new units.


Also our streaming host Hecthor Doomhammer will be celebrating the release tonight with a special release stream!

I don't understand! I install it properly, right where I've always installed RotR, I'm using The First Decade, yet it keeps saying "Access to the path is denied."

Do I NEED to install the SWR net thing? If so, HOW do I install the net?

I installed the .net the same way I installed the patch, but I still get the same message: "Access to the path is denied."

I want to play this mod so bad! Please, how do I fix this?

You should not install 1.8, only 1.85. There may be a conflict and may cause problems launching the game.

Hey guys, I run this with Origin, Installed to correct path, the ROTR launcher does nothing, the mod works when I start generals zero through origin launcher, anyway to get the ROTR launcher to work? I think there was an Origin launcher fix back in the day, would appreciate if someone linked!

For multiplayer, I see in launcher window "9 players online" no idea how to actually get in to multiplayer, network thingy is empty, and install directory told me to get SWR 1.001 instead of the 1.000, any ideas?

Win 9 ??? No such thing - they skipped it in favor of Win 10. There is Win 7 & 8 then 10 beta for public testing. The full version of Win 10 to be released later with all the bells & whistles you dreamed of!

Still have issues trying to get the game to work! Keeps saying Acces to the path is Denied! I reinstalled the entire First Decade serie and removed/redownloaded and reinstalled the 1.85 RotR version, even did that SWR.net thing though i dont play online. Is there anyway to FIX this? I really wanna play

Try "Run as Administrator". Right-click on the Rise of the Reds shortcut on your desktop, select "Properties", click on the "Compatibility" tab at the top of the window which opens, check the box "Run this program as an administrator," click on the "Apply" button at the bottom of the window, click on Okay.

Thanks for that! It now does launch, only to run into the next issue! Now the thing is telling me that i need DirectX 8.1 or higher. Tried to find a solution on the internet, they said to remove the options.ini file and it should work. But sadly that doesnt :( i know i dont have the greates pc of all times but i did run 1.802 just fine

1) Are you sure you have DirectX 8.1 or higher? (I assume you do, but can't hurt to ask)
2) Have you tried running the ROTR launcher using different Operating System compatibility settings? (Look in the "Compatibility" tab, just above where you checked the box "Run this program as an administrator"). I've had this resolve issues with other mods.

Did you have copy the C&C ZH with the mod? If yes, unistall the contra and the ZH delete the file C:/programs (x86)/EA Games/C&C ZH. Install the C&C ZH make a copy to the desktop, install the CONTRA in C:/programs (x86)/EA Games/C&C ZH when is done, rename it to CONTRA, paste the "clear" ZH file in C:/programs (x86)/EA Games install the ROTR and rename the file ROTR. And dont delete the clear ZH file, if you play with mods is important for you.
