Instructions:
When you start RA1installer you will have the following options:
  • 1. Web Installation:
    This feature downloads the freeware ISO files directly from the official EA server(or mirrors) and installs em automatically (you don't need to have any games files, everything is included)

  • 2. CD Installation:
    Just insert the red alert CD, start the installer linked above (do not use the installer on the cds!), pick CD Installation and choose the drive

    You can also install the game via the freeware release files RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar/CD1_ALLIED_DISC.ISO and RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar/CD2_SOVIET_DISC.ISO, just select Full CD Installation and browse to the folder that contains the files (you don't need to burn the files to a cd or mount them, RA1installer will take care of all that)

  • 3. Patch existing installation:
    Patches an existing installation (TUC, TFD, etc..)
    The installer will automatically find the installation folder for The Ultimate Collection/The First Decade/previous installation. If it doesn't find it or you want to patch a custom Red Alert installation then select the right folder as Destination Location.
    The Patch function will be disabled if the game wasn't found in the selected folder.

If anybody wanna assist translating the messages to other languages, please post em here (its just a few lines, see below)

Im looking for the following languages:
german french basque brazilianportuguese catalan czech danish dutch finnish hebrew hungarian italian japanese norwegian polish portuguese russian serbiancyrillic serbianlatin slovak slovenian spanish ukrainian

These lines need to get translated (do not translate "Red Alert", only the other words):

As requested in the chat, here is the Portuguese Portugal translation:

English => Portugal Portuguese

ERROR: Red Alert CD not found! Please select the right drive/folder! => ERRO: O CD de Red Alert não foi encontrado! Por favor selecione a Drive/Pasta correta!

Select the Red Alert CD => Selecione o CD de Red Alert

In which folder/drive is the Red Alert CD located? => Em qual Drive/Pasta está o CD de Red Alert?

Select the drive/folder in which the Red Alert CD is located: => Selecione a Drive/Pasta onde o CD de Red Alert está:

No-CD Patch/Full Installation => No-CD Patch/Instalação Completa

Hope it doesn't have any errors :S
Hope it helps you! :D

EDIT: Removed the extra C due to the new portuguese grammar
