The infantry-spamming tower

Recommended Posts

Let's build a structure, that spawns a soldier every time when a shot is fired on! That can be used as hostile base-defense in missions or a neutral building in multiplayer games. That's actually a funny and entertaining element in a map. 

Choose a building with weaker armor, otherwise there could be a huge flood of infantry, which slows down online games.

1. Place the building where you like to have it. Place 2 waypoints: WP1 beneath the building, WP2 next to it.

2. Now create a teamtype:

Create a taskforce: 1 E1 (or something else, but but only 1 infantrist!), create a script (1. move to WP2, 2. area guard: few seconds, 3. attack anything) and a teamtype. Set WP1 as Waypoint for the team.  Make sure team owner and building owner are identical (or at least allied with each other).

3. Create a trigger:

Set in RA1: Existence -  constant, in TS/RA2: Type 2 - Repeating.

Event: Attacked by anybody/any house.

Action: RA1: Reinforce team - Our teamtype. RA2/TS: 80 - Reinforce at Waypoint - Our Teamtype / WP1.

4. Double-click on your building and attach trigger. If the building is destroyed, the trigger automatically will die too.

 

Now with every shot of my hovercraft there is one trooper coming out of the lighthouse!

      Took a while, but I finally finished a full conversion mod for the original Red Alert. 
      Able Archer is to portray how Red Alert would have played out in the 1980s. I tried to make it as realistic as possible with the limited engine.
      Original campaign works, as do most of the extra missions. Ant missions are strange, as ant units are used for regular buildable units.
       
      C&C Red Alert Able Archer is confirmed to work with C&C The First Decade with TFD 1.03 rev4. 
      Red Alert's version should be 3.03. It may work with other versions of the game, but may encounter bugs.
      -Simply unzip the archive into your Red Alert folder. Make sure to backup existing EXPAND2.mix, hires1.mix, rules.ini, and aftrmath.ini.
       
      PATCH 1.1 has been released, please scroll down.
       
      Known bugs:
      Game crashes when loading more than one game. Simply restart the game and you can load another save.
      Transport Helicopters will attempt to leave the map when Spetsnaz board them. This is hard coded.
      Graphics Credits: AchromicWhite, ROB, Tschokky, Westwood Studios.
      If I forgot to credit you, please let me know so I can add you here.

      So I installed the installer and this message pops up everytime I try to open the launcher. I have reinstalled it and it launches the Launcher but I cant save my settings either for some reason. it keeps saying "Cant access the path "D:\Westwood\RA2\ddraw.dll". I thought it was a Read-Only issue. So, I removed read-only from all the files but still it isnt working. Any help?

      Hi, 
      Trying to join multiplayer game of Red Alert. Lobby window opens, but I am stuck with connecting.
       * Connecting... (takes up to 1minute)
      No matter how long I wait, nothing happens. And I get no hint why connection is not successful. I have gone though windows firewall settings, and even disabled firewall completely. Still no luck. App can download game files normally, and I can also play skirmish with no issues.
      How to get connected to lobby? Or where to look next?
      Platform: Win 10 running on vmware fusion on top of OSX.
