Alienturnedhuman Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 Hello. Many years ago (14 to be precise) I made a conversion of Red Alert called "RA2TS" while the C&C was anticipating the constantly delayed Tiberian Sun. The mod, with the clue being in the name (Red Alert to Tiberian Sun) was an attempt to try and convert Red Alert into the best approximation of Tiberian Sun based on what was known of Tiberian Sun within the limitations of the Red Alert game engine. At the time, it was a very popular mod (although this was probably more down to the fact everyone was hungry for Tiberian Sun and Westwood kept delaying its release) but obviously, in the 14 years since all the websites hosting it have closed down and newer and fancier RTS games have stolen the spotlight. However, I recently found the files when cleaning up the hard drive on my computer and decided to load it up for nostalgia's sake but obviously now having a 64 bit Windows 8 machine meant my original RA discs wouldn't even load up. I briefly set up a Windows 98 virtual machine, however through the wonders of Google found the new releases of Red Alert made by the community to run natively on modern machines and through those discovered that there is still an RA modding community. So, if anyone is interested, I've rehosted my original conversion on my own webserver at the following url: http://randomperspective.com/ra2ts/ I will point out that I'm not the greatest artist, and this was made 14 years ago when the graphics software available to me was even more primitive, so the graphics I made are not the best. But my 16 year old self invested a lot of time and had a lot of fun making and playing it and hopefully you might too. I don't know if anyone is still around from 1999 and remembers the mod, obviously, it's been a long time. -Ben Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
