Red Dawn (RA-1)

Recommended Posts

Thank you. Worked perfectly. :)

 

No problem!

 

Ah, fixed my problem. When I first installed I put it into a copied folder of RA (I wasn't sure if it'd ruin regular RA). 

After I realized it wouldn't damage it, I installed it into the regular directory and it works fine. Cool mod btw, I do like 

the new units too.

 

Ah.... Yes.  The way Red Dawn is made it won't interfere or ruin normal RA-1 but it needs to be installed into the RA-1 directory. Red Dawn need files from normal RA-1 to run. If you install Red Dawn out side of TFD directory, The installer will give you the RA-1 to CnC95.exe that need CDs.

 

There is not a lot of new new units. The SSM Launcher and Chemical Warrior were in the Covert Ops add-on from C&C 95. I had to use unit from RA-1 to cut down the amount of map recoding I would have to do.

 

I did a rename Aftermath units. MAD Tank to EMP Tank. There is an EMP Tank in C&C Tiberian Sun Firestorm although mine is over kill compared to it. The Chemical Tank and the Infantry Fighting Vehicle Light is new.

 

The Infantry Fighting Vehicle Light, also know as the Egyptian Infantry Fighting Vehicle is a real tank.

Hey, how did you make the IFV?

I was wanting to make a Bradley for my own mod, but didn't know how to make a turreted unit that also carried guys. Well, the editor I had DID allow it... but then I couldn't deploy the men back out again (minor problem... lol).

 

It hard hardcoded. There are only two ground vehicles that can load and unload infantry. [APC] or [sTNK]. The only vehicle that can load and unload infantry with a turret is the Aftermath Phase Transport [sTNK] that I made it into the Infantry Fighting Vehicle Light.

Heh. That's one of the things I fixed in C&C1, at least. You can make any unit an APC there by editing the stats. I removed the extra unit ID check on the Can Load / Can Unload logics without any side effects :)

Must be nice...

 

Than again if you put a APC on reinfore trigger with any tanks. It all make the APC unload the the tanks like it a tranport.

Ah, I tried that too, but had issues building it and not having the whole game lock up, lol. I think it had something to do with the name bugging out, or something.

Nice to see it can work though, the two big issues I was having was making the Bradley and the MRLS graphics... I think someones telling me to continue my mod... *eerie silence*

 

Oh, and Nyer, hurry up and fix it for RA modders as well! :D

You'll get game lock up if you Name= or Image= in the rules.ini. The more Name= or Image= you have in the rules.ini the more likely and faster the game will lock up. Red Dawn uses it own engine and mix files so it has no Name= or Image= in the rule!.ini

 

You can change the name of just about any thing ingame with a Ingame Strings Editor. Use XCC Mixer and extract the conquer.eng from Expand2.mix. Place conquer.eng into your RA-1 folder. You can use the Ingame Strings Editor to change the name listed in the conquer.eng. The game should read the from the RA-1 folder but I will also mess up Red Dawn's Ingame Strings too.

 

In the next patch I will fix Red Dawn to read it own conquer.eng to fix the said above problem.

 

Ingame Strings Editor I used.

Lol, you made the buggy out of the minelayer... it has a deploy icon if you hover the mouse on it XD

 

I had to. The only other unit left was the Truck but using it would cause even more problems.

Eh, don't see how that's related. I'm talking about giving DIFFERENT vehicles the transport ability.

My doubt is:

Would that be applied only in mapmaking level (i.e. *.BIN + *.INI) or would it require to edit other files ("mod" level).

I have seen this stats tables somewhere, but could it be done only thru *.INI editing?

Which files would be edit then (and provided to the players)?

 

The idea is, I'd like to have a ...(misterious unit eheheh)... "delivering a survivor" before being destroyed, if that happen.

Ehhh... I'm talking about the equivalent of editing RA's rules.ini to give a unit the ability to carry passengers. That's always global. It'd take a whole mess of editing to save that kind of stats in savegames, which would be kind of a prerequisite to make it mission specific X_x

 

At the moment it's not possible yet (through ini editing anyway) because I haven't made the read system for the unit stats yet. Once I do, you can even add new units though. I just wish I could find those bloody turret and firing offset offset lists though. It's all exactly centered at the moment -_-

Can You do this for RA-1? I don't like that fact that I had to remove the Mine Layer and make it the Buggy.

@Nyerguds

 

I'll have to ask him to do that and see if he can give the Helicarrier rotating frames

 

@Everyone

Anyway, work on Red Dawn is still going on. Most of it is to clean up the and to make the installer easier to read the install instruction. CounterStrike and Aftermath registries to fix Red Dawn for foreigner *Non-English RA-1* users plus instruction for Full RA+ users.

 

The only work on Red Dawn is for the ingame is use of Mplaye!.ini. Mplaye!.ini is a file that work like the any rules.ini but only works for Aftermath multiplayer. I'm using it to bring back some of the unused things. I'm bring back the Allied Tech Center as the Satlite Center. The Theif is back and the Helicarrier too. These things will be available to Aftermath multiplayer users in the next Red Dawn.

word of warning, while the heil carrier code works perfectly, the german version of the game contains a crippling graphical bug which will crash the game when this unit is built. (there may be a way around it like if you put the shp of the heil carrier in a mix file and distribute it.

 

(very nice btw, i look forward to giving this ago)

The heil carrier for Red Dawn will have a new shps. Shown in the pic plus Red Dawn's heil carrier will be packed into a Red Dawn only readable mix file.

 

Thanks for the heads up thought! and you can get the download link at the 1st page.

HELP..! I installed the mod but it seems that need Cd to play. I download and instaled the "FullRA+ - RA 3.03 with AM and CS" from the web, and then I Installed the red dawn mod in the same directory of Ra-1. What is the problem? If I run "RA95.exe" it work fine, but if I run the "RA-1 to C&C95.exe" needs Cd. Please some one can help me? Sorry for my english I'm Argentinian.

hey, can you change the transport to look like the landing craft in CnC1. I know it'd be weird if it was loading stuff side on, or even that they disappear, because it's open topped, and that it'd have no loading animation. Even so, I like it, pretty please? lol

I suspect you've already decided against, but I thought I'd spark some tank on it. BTW, awesome mod.

I decided against since the RA-1 landing craft only uses one frame when moving. As you know it never turns in game. I took a creative license with the C&C1 LCAC. I now have something that could work in RA-1. There is the still ingame frame and load/unload animation.

      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

      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

      CnCNET is great, and since RA source code has been released this is a huge step in improving the game and adding nice juicy features that allow us to enjoy the game we love.
      Add a replay system, maybe as an option as saving a replay could add more lag to games.
      Fix bug where you can ally someone who is trying to Engi your building which prevents it from being captured
      New .ini keywords, this would allow for more control over making maps of all types from nurple to Defense maps
      I'll list a few keyword suggestions
      Ability to remove darkness crate as random chance Chrono (superweapon) Crate Size of Nukes/Demo Trucks explosions Force Ore Regrowth on (ignores lobby setting "Ore Regenerates") Crusher Flag for vehicles Helicopter Firing Delay Auto Attack Flag (Tanya for example) Build Speed Multiplier (per unit/building) New Triggers New blank units if modders want to add them to maps. (Like Ferrets Tiberian Alert mod)

      I told you my scroll was broken and it was. I played the entire match holding right click to move across the screen. I think you think I b.s.'d you to get you to commit or something. That is not at all the case.
      This was on the CNC remastered ladder.
