Recommended Posts

Iran has released a new version of PortableRA the details can be read below.

 

A new beta version of PortableRA has been released. PortableRA is a Red Alert 1 game download which comes with all the latest community fixes and patches. It is modular in that it can be downloaded as a small 13 MB minimum package with campaign, music and videos added later. Of course there's also an automated PortableRA installer and a videos installer. Support for videos and music from the PlayStation 1 only Red Alert: Retaliation game is also included. It is known to run on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. It also runs on Linux and Mac OS X under Wine.

It comes with the community made ra303p patch, which adds a lot of new features and fixes bugs and crashes. Features include:

 

- Support for high resolution

- Completely no-CD

- A powerful configuration tool and simple launcher.

- Ability to enable/disable the game expansions on the fly (expansions are included with PortableRA)

- New music can be added to the game with a simple INI control file

- Tons of mission fixes

- Support for showing custom missions in the game main menu and support for mini-campaigns

- Multiplayer AI fixes and optional enhancements

- Support for simple graphical and sound mods which work online (e.g. beta Tesla Tank and grenadier throwing sound)

- Fixes for at least 20 different game crashes.

- And MUCH more for a total over 146 features/fixes/changes!

 

A full feature list for the ra303p patch can be found here.

 

The main new features/changes in the new PortableRA beta release are:

 

- The new CnCNet 5 is included by default instead of the older CnCNet 4. There are over 200 Red Alert players online on CnCNet 5 every European evening. The new CnCnet 5 is a massive improvement over CnCNet 4 and has been in development for 9 months.

Does anyone know what's happened to PortableRA?.. Are the people behind it on these forums? The link to the download page on their website isn't working anymore.

 

EDIT: Thanks to webarchive I was able to find a backup of their original Downloads Page and see what the original download file links were to see if the files were still hosted. Thankfully they still are!

Installer:

Video Installer:

There were many more links to various things on their downloads page though so it would be nice if they fixed it still.

Nyerguds also has a ModDB page setup for it too that shouldn't disappear in the future:

Pity the PortableRA guys haven't set one up too!

@Blake00

PortableRA is out of date, better use @FunkyFr3sh's installer now a days: https://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/

and Nyer's 1.06 page isn't going anywhere soon.

Anyway I fixed the PRA site in the interest of historical preservation, at least the downloads. Oh and mind the date, this topic was 4 years old.

Thanks Tore. Sorry, I figured it was better asking here then creating a new annoying thread.
