New Mission map Foothold (Soviet mission)


Recommended Posts

Sorry this is a repeat post as it was originally posted into the wrong section.

New Mission map for anyone running Red Alert2 , you will need the Soviet mission Disc. The Zip holds the sov01t.map file and the ra2.csf string file. Place these two files in the Westwood Red Alert2 folder. Then launch the game and select the Soviet Mission.

Once your finished playing this mission simply remove both these files and the Red Alert Game will be restored.

Name: Foothold
Size: 120 x 55
Players: 1
Theatre: Temperate

To play this mission:Red Alert2 Soviet mission disc is required.(Unless you have the full game installed on your system.
Extract the contents of the winzip file into your Red Alert2 Directory.Launch the game,select new campaign for the Allies.
The game will then launch.

                     "Were In Lockdown, so its time to make a return!"

Info:Commander weve detected allied activity deep in the Carpathian Mountains. With rumours of 
a replica of Einstein's Laboratory, it is a matter of great urgency to investigate this and extinguish 
all traces of this allied incursion. The Lab may hold secret information as to the allies intent.
It would be of great value to our mighty Soviet Empire if this Lab and its secrets became the property
of the Motherland.
Do your duty and reclaim these lands from the Allied blight! 
You do this for the glory of Russia,and the honour of those that have fallen before you.
 - Do not fail in your mission!

 Objective 1: Annihilate all traces of the Allied Incursion.

 Objective 2: Locate, capture and defend, Einstein's Lab.

Hints and Tips: Defend your base well, you will be ambushed at times. Once you capture Einsteins Lab, keep it well defended.
As always there is the odd bug. Its been noted that the Chrono Troopers can bunch-up and simply sit around. If at any point
the AI decides to sell up, everything attacks, however Mirage Tanks appear to stay hidden.
Were short on waypoints in Final Alert 2, so crates will appear close to your base in one spot. Keep an eye out.
If at any stage you feel youve eliminated all the enemy and the game doesn't end, there is always a hidden unit. Usually a
Mirage Tank sat near a waterfall, or a boat out at sea. Go over the map carefully, there are a number of units hidden around the map.
Ive tried rushing, and Ive tried playing it defensive. Both have their merits.
Players sometimes like that 'time', to build a nice neat base, this mission gives you 20 minutes before the onslaught. Have fun.



Ok so there u have it,
A RA2.CFS file has been added. This will overwrite any other RA2CSF.file which you may of installed in your 
RA2 Folder from previous downloaded missions.The file contains text which been altered in order to fit 
with the maps theme!

Explanation: The Sov1.map file when placed in your RA2 folder preceeds the standard RA2 Soviet game disc missions.
This means that the first mission played when the game is launched will be this mission. To restore your games
original first mission simply remove the sov1t.map file from your RA2 folder.
The RA2.csf file contains the text for this mission, it also preceeds your game disc csf file. As above once you have
finished playing this mission remove the RA2csf.file. This also causes your game to revert to reading from the mission 
disc as opposed to reading data from the RA2 folder.
