RA2:YR Unholy Alliance files

Recommended Posts

Hello :)

 

So I decided to go through all my old Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge stuff, and remembered how bad the default unholy alliance files are. I couldn't find anything else online, so thought I would share my 2 creations here, where they may prove useful, either for fun online games or as a sandbox type mode for skirmish. The default (that I have, anyway) mpunholymd.ini looks like this:

; Multiplayer Game Mode Rules.INI override
;   Mode == Unholy Alliance
;   This file must exist to satisfy the Multiplayer Game Mode system

; Unholy Alliance provides each player with both an Allied and Soviet MCV at the start of the game
;   This INI may need to adjust the owner property of buildings and units
;    It may also need to adjust the tech tree

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;;GLOBALS
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;


[MultiplayerDialogSettings]
AlliesAllowed=yes


; Soviet Barracks
[NAHAND]
Prerequisite=POWER

; Allied Barracks
[GAPILE]
Prerequisite=POWER

[YABRCK]
Prerequisite=POWER


[NAREFN]

[GAREFN]

;Soviet Radar
[NARADR]
Prerequisite=FACTORY

; airforce command
[GAAIRC]
Prerequisite=PROC

;American Airforce Command
[AMRADR]
Prerequisite=PROC

[NAPSIS]

Which, to be honest, isn't very good.

 

Here's my two options. The first one requires you to work your way up your own tech tree to unlock the other 2 MCV's. The second allows you to build up any of the 3 tech trees at any time you like, but, you still need the respective MCV of the side who's superweapon you want...

 

; Multiplayer Game Mode Rules.INI override
;   Mode == Unholy Alliance
;   This file must exist to satisfy the Multiplayer Game Mode system

; Unholy Alliance provides each player with both an Allied and Soviet MCV at the start of the game
; ^THIS IS WRONG - ONLY ONE MCV IS GIVEN

;   This INI may need to adjust the owner property of buildings and units
;    It may also need to adjust the tech tree
; ^In other words, this file in default form will do very little.
; The basic idea in this version is to allow any house to build any other house's MCV via the usual service depot route, plus your house's tech and conyard.
; This is done by using the ForbiddenHouses= flag and adding 6 new fake MCVs which all deploy into the normal respective conyard.
; The only diferences are Owner= and ForbiddenHouses=, as well as the prequisites. All this is required to prevent having multiple MCV's of the same faction in the
; sidebar. If using default rulesmd, this file will work fine. 
; It is also required as their is no catch-all category for Depot's like there is for POWER, RADAR, PROC, etc. After deploying another house's 'MCV' then the full 
; tech tree will be available as normal. The new MCV's are also CrateGoodies=no.
; If you have mods, make sure VehicleTypes 95 to 100 are not in use by rulesmd.ini, if they are, I will expect you to know how to fix this.

; Multiplayer Game Mode Rules.INI override
;   Mode == Unholy Alliance
;   This file must exist to satisfy the Multiplayer Game Mode system

; Unholy Alliance provides each player with both an Allied and Soviet MCV at the start of the game
;   This INI may need to adjust the owner property of buildings and units
;    It may also need to adjust the tech tree


; Version 2.0 - actually a rewrite of my first version that got lost. This version will give true full tech from a single starting MCV, regardless of which house
; you play as! Only the superweapons prerequisites have been left alone, eg. You are allies and want to build a Psychic Dominator, you will need to build up Yuri's
; tech line as such: Any power, Yuri Barracks, any refinery*, Yuri weapons factory, any radar, Yuri tech and a Yuri Grinder. Then build and deploy a Yuri MCV, now you 
; will have access to Yuri's superweapons! I did this for balance reasons, plus, it also stops other house's MCV's from being totally worthless.

; *Any refinery only applies to Yuri's tech line. In the original rules, Yuri's tech always requires PROC and never YAREFN, since YAREFN deploys into a unit. Allied
; and Soviet lines will require the appropriate GAREFN or NAREFN, however, Yuri's line also requires Yuri's barracks.

; The house's unique units and structures still require their respective house in order to use. eg. You need to be France if you want the Grand Cannon. I suppose that
; actually makes Yuri's side the least useful to play as, as all other sides get access to all his stuff! The only advantage to playing as Yuri is you will have
; access to his superweapons earlier, as you won't need to build his grinder to unlock his MCV.

All tested on 1.001, seems to work fine for me at least. Just copy the code, save to correct filename/extension and drop into your main games directory. Hope someone enjoys! I would upload a couple more screenshots but forum just won't let me...  :down:
