Red Dawn (RA-1)

Recommended Posts

Guest Copper

Hey Allen, I need some help too.

 

I have posted a question in Mapping Help about the Patrol to waypoint command, perhaps you could check it out?

Read that too.

Map with that start with CMU and end with .ini are not read by RAED. Also maps over the standard 8x3 will cause an error.

One thing to remember is that the RA95.exe can only run so fast. This was seen when Funky tried to double the number of units that could be built for multiplayer games. The game would lag up even on new systems.

Thanks for the reply, Allen.

 

Strange, though, with the methods I described above RAED opens such files just fine for me.  O_o

Make sure the file name is using only 8 characters long not including the .ini/.mpr. RAED will only read .inis that start with SCA, SCG, SCU, *the following are multiplayer* SCM, SCMD,SCME, SCMF, SCMG, SCMI, SCMJ, SCMK, SCML and SCMM. RAED will read any .mpr as long as the file name 8 characters long not including the .mpr. RAED will NOT read any .mpr put into a mix file.

 

You going to have to go to the Red Dawn folder *default install is C:\WESTWOOD\RedDawn 2013 * and find your map. Than change the frile name or file extension.

Brandonvortex, I really think you should examine the Red Alert Mission Creation Guide. You can find it in the Guides section of the site.

Also check out some of the stock missions, it's a good way to learn.

 

Allen, I still can open maps such as, say, cmu201ea.ini, in RAED directly, as I described above. Any idea why this happens to me and not to you?

Um, this is awkward. I saw it fitting to say this here...

 

You see, change of priorities and other reasons will keep me from participating in the forums in the future. I'm even deleting my account, since I won't be using it.

 

So, um, goodbye.

This mod is amazing!

 

I really enjoy playing the classic C&C missions. Is it possible include all of the videos for the classic campaign missions? I noticed that only a handful of them play when beginning and ending a mission. Or am I just missing something?

Not missing any thing. I only put a handfull of briefing videos that were usable with the stock RA1 missions. I did this since videos are huge file to download and I don't want to replace C&C 95 as Nyerguds has put lots of work into improving C&C 95.

Something I didn't plan since text editing 80+ missions is not fun but I may do it.

Come now. That's what regex search & replace is for :P

 

I can probably do that with about 5 minutes messing around to make the regex, and then a single click :D

Would be quicker to write a program which adds/sets the correct INI to every *.ini file with C#.

 

I'm gonna assume that key doesn't exist, at least for most of them.

I just notepad any text edit.

Don't worry about it.

i made a tool to add some keys to maps (to fix up old maps since back then there was no spain,greece,turkey and the maps were unfair cause of the missing keys)

 

what keys you need to add?

The key I need to add to USSR and Badguy is SecondaryColorScheme=

 

That is not the only key that can be added in a map to a side. There is Color= it effects buildings, MCV, Harv (and units if SecondaryColorScheme= is not applied to the side.) There are others but they are not the important right now.

Well I started work on things again. Mostly some simple things. Adding SecondaryColorScheme= to all of the stock RA1 missions. Adding Tschokky Jungle theater in for the remade funpark (Dino) missions. Gathering up half completed things like the Terrain Expansion. http://cnc-comm.com/community/index.php?topic=2620.0 and funpark (Dino) missions.

 

To the things you can see below. I reworked the Weapons Factoy to fix the exit clipping. This cut the WF to a single smoke stack and ment I had to make a new icon. The Tib Refinery now has 2 silos covering what was open air tiberium pits. Radar logo have been updated. Left is old and new is right. Tschokky Jungle theater during funpark 4. This show the fix secondary color so the MCV and Harverst say the same color as the buildings and aircraft now use the secondary color like in C&C95.

The dino missions shouldn't have Nod at all, though. They use a purely grey-coloured player.

I know that but I made the player use full Nod colors. After all Kane dose the intro for the first mission. Also Funpark 2 is no longer desert but jungle too. :D

      Hello guys!
      I had a weird a weird issue.
      I'm currently developing a next version of CCRDX mod and i modified one civilian slot (C3 known as Shelly) as a buildable unit. As rules.ini i turned a value NamedCivilians=yes and with Ingame Strings editor i edited conquer.eng Shelly's name as a suitable unit name. Let's just say that Shelly is no more Shelly but her in-game name is Sniper.
      A few days ago i was testing a mission which had a Desert theater and i found out that if NamedCivilians is turned on, some of the civilian building names are really weird, such as "are you propse a draw?", etc.
      -> clicking on that building crashes game immediately.
      -> But when namedcivilians is turned off, the building name is "civilian building" and game won't crash anymore.
      -> But if NamedCivilians is turned off, my C3 slot unit name is "Civilian" and i can't edit the name. This is a quality issue.
       
      Any ideas how to fix this issue?
      My goal: I want that each civilian building has a name "civilian building" and game won't crash and also i want that my C3 unit in-game name is Sniper.
      What i know is that editing rules.ini putting the name tag on a certain building can fix this, but it can also cause many crashes making my mod non-playable. I also tried to make a list of every Civilian building, put the Name=Civilian Building on it and insert these values under certain mission file, this worked 50-50.
