Improved desert.mix / pal for RA

Recommended Posts

I think I had an earlier posting on this issue, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

So I have improved the existing desert.mix for RA featuring the original C&C desert tileset. I would be very happy to see it in the official RA Online package.

desert.mix

I also had that idea, but I would go even further:

There are some different colors who got the same colour index during conversion of the images from TD to RA palette, e.g. there was a loss of information and quality of the theatre files itself. So it might be necessary to convert all (at least many) theatre files again with an edited palette to get a visible result...

Too, I would try to change more colors (as much as possible), e.g. I'd use the whole fire palette (colors #16 - 31 in desert.pal) from TD as some colors are used for terrain too. At all, You have to check how far you can change the palette before you decrease quality other images, e.g. sidebar icons etc.

Why not? This makes absolutely no sense.

It makes plenty of sense. People don't want Red Alert Tschokky edition.

Actually people LOVE playing "Tschokky edition" as the devs included the cave, barren and jungle tilesets which I made, so I'm starting to think that you have absolutely no idea about what you are talking. So replacing the TS desert with the original desert should not be an issue, since it's 100% compatible. If you would like to play further with the TS desert, that should be up to you, but that is not the desert tileset that should be in the official release.

"They don't wanna come play red alert for nostalgia" - maybe yes, maybe no. Maybe they should change all other tilesets for you :)

"no need to force changes on to people" - as I said before, I made jun, bar, cav, and I didn't force anything :) so I think you are out of the line here.

you only changed the .pal?

If you removed or added some shps then it would be tricky to update, need to figure out a good way for it

Yes, I have modified 3 terrain-related colors in the palette which do not affect the icons, unit and ore shps.

Shps modified are:
- trees
- bibs
- MSLO/HBOX (+MAKEs)

Added tiles from C&C desert tileset:
- dark patches
- impassable bushes
- original desert rivers ('compatible' with other river tiles)

They don't wanna come play red alert for nostalgia only for it to look like a different game. which is what happens very quickly with very minor changes. some people want upgrades and that is still possible if they want it so ya... no need to force changes on to people.

Maybe you don't understand what Tschokky did here - Desert in RA actually is nothing official from Westwood but a fan-made mod somebody made 5 years ago. Tschokky just did improvements to it to get it closer to the original desert theatre from TD, that's all.

      i was just playing a 1v1 in red alert 1 (CNC Remastered), and witnessed something that really stunned me. i soviet rocket submarine fired on one of my turret guns from, what seemed to me, an impossible range. i added a screenshot for clarification. maybe someone can take a look at the replay and tell me what they think.
      i have played this game for a while now (in the remastered iteration), and have my share of experience with rocket submarines (quite a pain in the ass). but i have never seen any of them take a shot from such a range. when i watched it happen, my eyes popped, and i immediately thought it was a cheater.
      can anybody confirm to me that this is legit? i tried to reconstruct the situation myself afterwards and could NOT fire from this point to that point from that range, my submarine automatically moved in at least one square and fired then. in this situation, the sub was standing still and kept shooting at the turrent until it was destroyed.
      is this an error, a cheat or just some insane range of an overpowered unit?
       
      greetings

      Hello, I played C&C and RA many years ago. Had it downloaded on my old Mac laptop (unfortunately stolen in burglary)! Does anyone know if the Mac version is still available? I can only see a Windows version? Any help gratefully received - miss this great little game! Cheers, Tor

      Good evening, I apologize for disturbing you so late in the evening but I would like some help so that I can reconnect with the players of the game because I happen to be muted ....
      I fully understand my mistakes, however the players had the privilege of getting out of the penalty and I would like to have a chance. My approach is going in the right direction so that everything goes well in the future and that I will live up to an image.
      Hoping that my request will not go unanswered.
