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.

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

      Custom map previews are enabled again!
      This gives a great advantage to specialty maps, you can actually make it stand out so players will actually stay and try it out, and also list the required map options in the image

       
       
      Funky even made a little tool that creates the code, to put in map. A simple drag image on top of the tool and voila,
      Create custom image (256x256 pixels max) Drag image on top of CnCNetPreviewGen.exe Download   copy code of created file into your map save map, restart cncnet, pick map, click on blue WARNING button, give me your checksum+map name   Reply with checksum and map name here, or pm me whatever u want
      Then i'll whitelist it!!
      Give it to me like this example:
      5e5af5ae6491ad645de88ca03e8f636bbf78557b=TowerDefense Rally RACE! Jungle [V2]
       

      @Agrathore @A3H-Hitman @PTapioK @eliteGi @bk57 @Humble  plz let other map makers know too, can't think of them all atm, ty.

      I got the complete whatchawhatever from Origin and I'm trying to relive the wonderful days of my introduction to RTS, but it seems as if none of the games are functioning.
      For Tiberian Sun, clicking anything in the menu freezes the whole program.

      For C&C RA2/YR, the mouse is invisible.
      And so on.

      Is it really necessary to download third party patches for games that Origin (Electronic Assholes) are charging money for?

      You have my thanks and best wishes,
      Me
    • By MrFlibble
      A very long time ago I found a Russian website with a RA1 TC called Third Revolution. It's a stand-alone total conversion with new campaigns and a setting unrelated to the C&C universe -- rather, it tells the story of a post-1991 restoration of the Soviet Union and its struggle against Capitalist adversaries. The author had problems with the black/transparent colour in the palette but otherwise it was pretty solid all-in-all.
      Back then I downloaded the Russian version, but later forgot about that TC until recently (had to ask around to remember the title). Anyway, the Russian version of the TC is available from The Red Alert Archive, however the developer's page also lists an English version (thirden.rar) among downloads, as well as a music pack (scores_full.rar). Supposedly, these were hosted at http://ra.afraid.org/thirdrev/, but the Wayback Machine does not have the respective files, and apparently they were at some point removed, for whatever reason.
      I was wondering if anyone still has these files archived somewhere? Also, it seems that the TC is based on Aftermath 2.02, would it be possible to upgrade to 3.03 Beta?

      Running CnCNet server using systemd (Linux x64)
       
      wget downloads.cncnet.org/tunnel.sh sh tunnel.sh 200 "Unnamed Server" If you're unsure what linux distro to choose, just take the latest version of Ubuntu
       
       
      Using the above method you can run both CnCNet servers as a service and they will continue to run even after the server restarted.
       
      Alternatively you can also run the servers individually (see below):
       
       
       
       
       
      New Server (All Games)
       
       
      Linux x64 example:
      wget -c https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server.tgz -O - | tar -xz nohup ./cncnet-server --name "My cool server" --maxclients 200 --port 50001 --portv2 50000 > cncnet-server.log 2>&1 & Linux ARM
       
       
      Windows:
      On XP, Vista and 7 make sure .NET 4.0 is installed: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=17113
      Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server-gui.exe
       
       
      Note: Servers are chosen automatically by CnCNet and are only used in case 2 players fail to establish a Peer-To-Peer connection. Yuri's Revenge players can select a specific server via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.
       
       
       
       
       
      Old Server (Yuris Revenge only)
       
       
      Linux (Ubuntu) example:
      sudo apt-get install default-jre wget http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe nohup java -jar cncnet-tunnel.exe -name "My cool server" -maxclients 200 -port 50000 -headless > cncnet-tunnel.log 2>&1 &  
       
      Windows:
      Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe
       
       
      Note:  To use a specific server you'll have to select it via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.
       
       
       
       
       
      The servers will not show up instantly on the website, it can take up to 4 hours
