Red Dawn (RA-1)

Recommended Posts

It dosen't have a virus.  Some antivirus software think the ra95.exe is a virus. I know Kaspersky use to but I emailed them about it and it was cleared up quite awhile ago. I also belive Norton was doing the same but it was fixed before I delt with Kaspersky.

 

All of the community builds of RA1 are know do this because of updates to the ra95.exe to fix bug and add new things. The community builds are based on PortableRA and specifically the ra95.exe AKA the Iran patched exe file. PortableRA http://iran.cnc-comm.com/ra/ has a warning about antivirus false positives at the bottom of the page.

looks very nice

of course RA already has its own compatible desert set that doesn't replace temperate, maybe you could switch it with this?

Jacko: wow, hold on :) frankly, this is new to me. What exactly does this mean? The term Theater=DESERT is actually valid in RA as well? Are the TMPs as the same as in C&C or in RA (just like the one I made)?

yes this is possible with the latest versions of RA, and is compatible with cncnet 5

 

I think winter (not snow) was converted too but I cannot confirm

AFAIK the latest version is 3.03, I have it too, but it crashed when I tried Theater=DESERT.

the original 3.03 doesnt support it, you need our patched versions :D

 

cncnet5 comes with all needed files, portableRA too

 

Edit: why do we spam allens Red Dawn thread ? :D

Iran's RA1 dose support Destert and Winter. Red Dawn used both before CnC Net 5 done. Red Dawn 2013 used desert for the Nod missions. GDI 9 is the only winter mission but loads of the skrimish maps used both as well. You best update to your RA1 with the Iran ra95.exe and related things.

 

FunkyFr3sh setup will patch your current install. http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/  Before you do the patching back up any modded thing just to be safe.

 

Desert tiles use the same name as temperate and snow but the file extension for desert is .des.

 

Jacko

I converted the C&C95 winter to RA1 for Iran as well.

Because it is the best thread? :-)

@Tschokky: The finished Desert conversion looks great, can I ship it with the 3.03p Red Alert patch?

Did you also create Desert graphics for the river etc tiles which C&C1 don't have but RA1 does? I.e. RA1 has a larger tile set than C&C1

Very nice! Could you upload the files?

 

I'm a bit worried this somehow breaks currently released desert maps but there are only a few of them so it shouldn't be so bad.

Indeed it does... would be better if that were based on either recoloured versions of the cracked Temperate one, or on the broken Desert bridge in C&C1.

You're absolutely right. I thought recoloring would really take a lot of time, so that's why I deceided to do that. I'll probably re-draw them later. In the meantime, here are the two mixes:

 

Desert.mix with tiberium

Desert.mix with gold/gems

Sorry about the redness, it's only because I use a different palette for my C&C conversion, I'll fix that too.

Hi there I finally re-downloaded and installed red dawn. is it me or the AI doesn't repair the buildings? i'm in the GDI mission where I have to go and defend the path I've cleared in a previous mission for a convoy, and well I send a few medium tanks at a time destroying the buildings in the nod base. as I sent the tanks and get trounced by the enemy, I realized that the damage I've done to the building doesn't get repaired. So, I was able to easily disable the supply of light tanks sent by the AI as soon as the weapons factory was blown. I saved the missions at theis point , but I've notciced that there was no repair icon on the building and the building has not been rebuilt also, The only building i've seen the AI fix is the Conyard.

 

was that suppose to happen?

yes

The AI in that mission was only told to repair the construction yard and the refinery

although it does rebuild things after a while unless something blocks where its supposed to be rebuilt

      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

      hi all,
      can someone help me?
      somehow i cannot login to cncnet anymore.

      greetings PeterSky

      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.

      Hey!
      When I click on ranked match in lobby I get error message which says "The program cncnetQM.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Windebug_what_happened_message".
      Haven't played for about 4 months, but when I played before it worked fine.
      I did have to reset my Mac to high Sierra before starting to play again cause cncnet don't work on newest Mac update if this matters, but I used high Sierra before when it worked also so dunno.
      Normal gameplay from lobby works fine tho
