Hey all, 2.1.4 is the final major content update in the 2.1 series so the package has been updated here on ModDB to include the latest changes. With that being said, I present to you the first RotE tournament.

1v1 Tournament

  • Single elimination format
  • 1v1 set up with 16 players max
  • Preset map selection, to be played at random
  • Prizepool of $200
    • 1st - $125
    • 2nd - $50
    • 3rd - $25

Feel free to sign up here.

What's New

Ask and you shall receive! Red Alert 2 campaign has been added to the list, completely remastered with new terrain, weather effects, special units and increased difficulty. And as usual much more:

  • Red Alert 2 Campaign
  • New Client Updater
    • Now supports Addons such as Cinematics via downloads
    • Beta server support (currently sitting at 2.1.4b so no different to the live server)
  • New Visuals
  • New OST by Charlie Lockwood, from Generals: Enhanced
  • Balance Updates
  • New Snow Terrain (beta)

Remastered Red Alert 2 Campaign, Cutscenes & Client Changes

Following the feedback from the YR campaign, I decided to work on enabling the RA2 campaign. There's not much to say really, other than here it is! All 24 missions!

Mission briefings and cinematics have also been added, but to keep the size of the package down as much as possible I made it available via the components tab within the client. I reduced the quality by about 70%, so if you want HD cinematics you may need to BYO from your RA2 & YR discs 😏

👏👏 It had to be done guys, too many people don't know how to read instructions and so this message has been implemented. Hopefully, it will help :P

Other than that, there was a lot of balance changes and unit reworks + art improvements.

  • New exclusive animations and unit art
  • New snow terrain
  • Unit Reworks
  • AI Improvements
  • New OST thanks to the team at Generals: Enhanced and the amazing soundtrack composer, Charlie Lockwood - be sure to check him out!

The updated M1A1 and Warlord

The WIP snow terrain is by MooMan65, waaaay back in the day but needs some fixing, so I will dedicate some time to get it done by 2.2.

The components use custom names in order to work properly in game and not overlap one another so I would recommend that. Unless you have some experience with XCC Mix editor, you could rename all RA2 cinematics to have 'ra2' at the start of their file name. You can leave the YR names as they are. Place them in a mix file (e.g. expandmd97.mix) then into the mod folder and you are set!

Hey mate are you on win7? if so can you please give gamemd.exe admin rights and see if it works? If not can you also do the same to the following files:

REClient.exe
Syringe.exe
Resources/clientdx.exe
Resources/clientxna.exe

You need to get them from an existing YR install, if you do not have the game you will need to buy/download it.
