Red Alert 3 and it's expansion Uprising

3 posts in this topic

So I'd like to start off with: I love this series, It was my introduction to video games at the age of 5. So as a fan of this franchise I play lots of it.

 

I'd like to address my problem with skirmish maps not showing up in the single player skirmish map list (The ones I have installed.)

Now I have read posts on this forum about going in to User/username/appdata/roaming/redalert3uprising so on and so forth(yes I enabled show hidden files) And followed the steps there and I cannot figure out what my problem is. At first I thought I had to take the map folder out of its extraction folder (The one that’s empty except for the file containing the map and its various accompanying files.) into the maps folder I had to manually add into the RA3 Uprising. The folder contained only one folder a profiles folder. I've restarted my computer, added just the map files in the map folder, put the un-extracted zip files in the map files in the map folder and then extracted them there.

 

Please note that I have: Windows 10, and The Ultimate Collection version

 

Furthermore The Base game Red Alert 3 likes to prompt me a registration key as the Splash screen shows up before starting the game, then asks to re-confirm the key, except it does it over and over and over again when I click done. The key is already in the box when it asks for it. I don't know if this is a customer service issue or what. I will tell you however; I'm pretty irritated with my ignorance on this issue and not being able to fix it. Please if anyone has any information or help on this please PLEASE help me out here!!!

Does each map have its own folder within the Maps folder?

If running Origin and RA3 as administrator and perhaps reinstalling doesn't change this, the only real way you can resolve this is by contacting EA's Customer Support, provided they even answer.

      Back in February, GVMERS posted a video that looked at what happened to the cancelled Tiberium FPS. Today, they have new Command & Conquer video that dives into the entire franchise. The Command & Conquer franchise helped shape the identity of RTS games during the 1990's and would influence the designs of countless similar strategy titles in later years. Even though the franchise ended with a whimper instead of a bang, it managed to create an indelible impact on the history of videogames. Join the team from GVMERS as they take a look at the rise and fall of Command & Conquer.

      This week's edition of C&C Music Monday is a bit different. Today we feature an actual music video. This is the "Red Alert 3 Remix" released by EA just as Red Alert 3 was launched. It could be one of the best promotional videos ever made. All of the big names from the Red Alert 3 cast appear in this video. Unfortunately the video was never released in HD, but the quality is acceptable. Watch this video and learn something! Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.

      The Condition Red: Rise to Power mod for Red Alert 3 has received two updated alpha builds this month, the latest being version 0.12. Both of these updates are more of maintenance builds compared to the first public demo from last year, with several bugs fixed and a simple AI added. Click here to download the latest version of the mod.

      Is there a pre-release version of Red Alert 3? There, many units were slightly different. 
      Or can I somehow get in touch with at least one of the developers?
