  1. It's been said over the years that these two units are kinda unbalanced especially by allied players who claim their tanks are 'plastic' and Soviet Rhinos are overpowered but, what's hidding behind this statement?

    It's quite known that in balanced human tank battles the victory goes usually for the Rhinos, (and by balanced I mean money spent on tanks, not amount of them), Rhino always seem to win easier if there's not other units around like Gi's or Rockies but... after looking for some info and/or videos I couldn't find anything clear so I decided to make an analysis and video myself. There you go...

    I make clear I'm Soviet player (not pro but decent) and I've been as neutral and impartial as I could. 

    Let's discuss people!!

  2. It looks like a way to prevent cheating in online games?

    Have you tried tu run the game from the original ra2md.exe file to see if the problem persists?

  3. Hello

    I'm doing some video stuff with Yuri's Revenge and every time I try to open the XCC Sound Editor that comes inside the XCC Mixer, the program just closes itself and won't let me do anything. I only need to extract some audios from langmd.mix\audiomd.mix\audio.bag as wave files to put them into a video.

    I'm using XCC Utilities 1.47 and surprisingly with older versions like 1.12 or 1.40 the issue won't happen, but I can't read Yuris Revenge, only Red Alert 2.

    Any idea of what could be causing this and any solution?

    Thanks in advance.

  4. I've been playing a few games online and I've noticed that the Scroll Speed is way too fast even when it's set at 0, and when I say too fast I mean near to be uncontrollable.

    I don't have this issue playing the vanilla games Ra2 / YR and/or the CNC Net client on Skirmish mode, I usually set it as fast, but in online games I'm forced to set it to slowest / 0 and still is too fast.

    Anyone knows what could be causing this problem and any possible solution?

    Any help is apreciated.

    I installed the drivers from the manufacturer's official website ..
    I also discovered that when launching yuri revenge, not through CNCNET, there are no buttons in the menu.
    Despite the fact that if you install the game for the first time, they are there, but after the next launch they disappear.


    Try this:

    Do right click on the Ra2 or YR icon on your desktop and see what is the .exe file it has associated to it. If it's game.exe or gamemd.exe change it to ra2.exe or ra2md.exe. (The md extension is for YR)

    Then click on the 'compatibility' box and run the compatibility problems solver or manager which is the first button of the window, follow the steps and leave it to recommended configuration that is probably going to be 'windows sp3'.

    Test the game and see if it works.

    Good luck.

  6. AI player Tanks usually don't run back or have tank control like a human.

    Apocalypse Tank is a very complete unit which can be used on certain situations as suporting unit to other teams or to be placed on a hill for base defense. It's an 'all in one' tank as they have anti air fire and they are extremely damaging vs buildings, defenses and vehicles, very heavy armor and they recover their health by themselves.

    Apocalypse has everything a war tank should have, except speed... and that makes them vulnerable in tank fights where a good player with faster tanks just would hit and run, time after time, and the Apocalypse Tank wouldn't success a single shot, and plus if you are targeting their tanks so they would do targeting move which makes them even slower.

    The best thing to do with a group of Apocalypse on a tank fight if the other guy runs is CTRL+Shift/Attack Move and DON'T target, so they will have automatic fire just like Rhinos without losing speed but most times it's not enought.

    So I would stick to Rhino as the most versatile Soviet unit, and if you need anti air then build flak which are fast too.

  7. Look at the game @ Cold War, Mr Zain has to appeal to Deso and SW to overcome Allied mass mirages even when his economy was so damaged from the start, and we all know Zain is a hard nut to crack who will attack you with the first tank. I don't say what he did is worthless but, what would have happened if:

    1.- SW were just off?

    2.- He picked other Sov country than Iraq?

    You know the answer bro.

    We all know Soviets are the strong faction in low Technology/Short game or whatever but if the Allied is good and hold the pressure and makes the game go late, he can turn the table and I'm talking about equal skilled players.

    You also forget pure naval maps like Depth Charge or Alaskan Oil, how would you overcome a good Allied on such maps?

  8. I'm agree with the guy who said Sovs is the weakest faction, maybe not in terms of armor/strenght of units and firepower but on posibilities. The proof is you need to pick Iraq and use Deso/DesoBombs on certain situations so if you are Sov, if no Deso no party while Allies can take a great profit of their special units on almost every country.

    So lucky in YR they still have the siege choppers because otherwise they would be useless (and I'm a Sov player) altough they still lack a Tech counter to BF's and don't tell me the Apocalypse Tanks fucking please 🤣

    Soviet Tech units are usually useless vs a human player because of their speed and if you don't believe me try to beat a good Allied player not spaming rhinos and not using Deso, and see what are the chances that you get.

    And I'm not going to talk about naval maps because its just ridiculous... y'all know what I mean.

    Yet I read comments from people complaining about players spaming rhinos and doing early preassure and splits, oh man you're a rusher!! Ok dude, next time I'm going to sit there until you have 75 mirages, 17 BF's and 500 Roketeers, and I'ma try to beat you with a combination of Apoc/TeslaTanks/V3 and Drones and if the map is Naval I'ma build a combo of Squids/Typhoons to counter your 700 Dolphins 🤣 

    Excuse me for the laughts please 🤣🤣

    I fucking love this game but on some aspects is clearly unbalanced.

  9. I'm sure some of you remember him guys, especially if you were playing at the first stage WOL times during 2001 - 2005.

    I knew a few days ago through his Facebook page and by some close familiars of him, that he has died on June 12. They did not give any detail but I know he had serious heart issues and suffered two strokes four years ago. Problems with drugs and/or alcohol? I don't really know.

    I met him in 2004, he wasn't one of the best players but he was real GG player, fun to talk to and play. He was always kidding and making fun of anything (or anyone) and thats maybe why he had many haters too and a very charismatic personality. In that sense he was a true rebel.

    Some of his nicks were APiTBuLL, Stimens, BeaT2KiLL, AGoNyPiTT, AGoNyBuLL and how not... MrNastY4u.

    For some reason that I don't know, he liked me alot, we played many FFG's and talked alot on MSN too, and that's were I knew about his political ideas which I don't share but were his ideas. Last time we talked was at about 2012 or so, just after I begun to work at a car spare parts shop, I stopped playing Ra2 because I had no time and we lost contact.

    From here, I would like to dedicate a memory for him. My condolences and prayers for all his family and I'm not a believer but, may God have him in his glory and thanks for your friendship, Jesse Stimens.

    Thanks for reading this.

  10. I've just noticed mine are Edifiers R1280T too 😂

    I'm not a big fan of Hi-Fi but I've always liked to have a good sound. 

    These sound very good and clear, have powerful and deep bass sounds, not bad for the size of the woofer, and the treble sounds very good too.

    Some how the most similar to studio monitors without spending that much.

  11. Ok guys, finally I've spent 63€ on a Logitech G703 Lightspeed and by now, I don't feel I wasted a single euro.


    - It can work both ways, you plug the cable and is a wired mouse, you unplug it and is a wireless mouse.

    - It has a cable and a USB-C adapter so you can keep the signal receiver near to your mouse minimizing so loss of signal (if you have a on desktop USB Ports Hub you can put it there too)

    -It has a very good optic sensor (Hero) that comes from the known Pixart PWM sensors.

    - Brand is good and reliable.

    - Rechargeable internal battery (not common batterys)

    - Very good price for what it offers

    - Easy and simple design with very good quality (including RGB light)


    - I'll tell you soon...

    Since I'm playing Ra2 with this mouse I have the absolute feeling that I do everything faster (always within my skills) even adjusting the cursor speed faster than I had it with the chinese mouse. It feels very smooth, fine and accurate.

    Does this means the chinese mouse is scum and unplayable? Absolutly not, just you can't expect to reach your maximum level of playing while you use it but it's very good If you don't mind these things or you play only for fun.

    As for the G703 Lightspeed, I recommend it 100%. It's a value for sure.

    Greetings commanders.

    Old School!








    For gods shake!! A classical of the time specific Red Alert mouse!! Even with it's serial port conection!

    I wonder how many DPI's it must have... xD but I believe it should be equivalent to a generic office mouse ball.

    Never ever knew that even existed...

    Later I'm goin to show you which one I've bought and why ;)

    That's all fantastic on paper, but you mentioned jittering, which could be due to signal/battery issue.


    Could be... but I believe it's more related to a not very good sensor or some dirty on the mouse mat.

    Did it have a plastic/petrochemical smell to it?


    I haven't notice any weird smell 😆
