Is there a way to paradrop tanks in RA2/YR?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am currently working on a "soft mod" of Yuri's Revenge (really just edits to the rulesmd.ini file), and was wondering if it was possible to allow tanks to be paradropped. Alternatively, is it possible to make a vehicle that can paradrop units on command, rather than from the support power (as in, you load units into it, then can deploy them from the air, as opposed to having to land first them evac the units)?

 

Thanks!

You can give an aircraft type some tags to do something like this although it behaves a bit strange. I think they require Landable=yes and the same tags that flak tracks use to carry infantry. If you load infantry units into this aircraft and the aircraft has a Primary weapon, telling the aircraft to attack something will instead make it paradrop all the infantry inside around the target. This can also work by using force fire (CTRL click).

To paradrop vehicles, you need to give it Carryall=yes and make it pick up the vehicle. IIRC, paradropping tanks can cause bugs with the tank's size. Carryall logic is also pretty broken in default YR, you need Ares (https://ares.strategy-x.com/) to get carryall logic working

      Hey everyone. I am new here...I have DL the client and I am able to play online or skirmishes just fine. my issue is I can not play the missions (the game keeps crashing)  when i use the old RA2/Yuri path. The C&C.net path does not give the option for the missions. is there a repair patch that will allow me to play the missions?  All my C&C games come from Origin if this matters. thanks Scally..

      I played against this guy and he generated a reconnection error twice:

      This player obviously cheats. I've never had a reconnection error on cncnet before.
      I hope you can ban this guy.

      hi - I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU to Ryzen 9 5900x. Everything works well except that the game freezes the first two seconds when I enter an online game with other players. When I play online with AI the game runs extremely fast on 60FPS (crazy fast it feels like 1000FPS). I tried other renderers and that didn't fix it. Skirmish works without issues.
      Could you please help? It used to run well with my previous Intel CPU.

      I have been trying to play RA2 with my boyfriend. We are able to get the game started but as soon as we start building the game freezes and eventually kicks the other person out. We can start individual games and run them at the same time but as soon as we start a game together it crashes. we are playing in the same house, same internet, could our IP address be throwing the gam e off? Here is the error log. client.log

      I love this launcher since I can play online with friends in a windowed 1280-800 resolution.
      But I have a question, I need to touch something to play the SINGLEPLAYER game (since I wanna stream the campaing) in a windowed 1280-800 resolution?
      If yes: How?
      If not: Well, I dont lost anything asking
