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.

      Community member and veteran modder @Bibber has released a new version (1.19) of his fixed launchers for Command & Conquer: The Ultimate Collection to potentially bypass the changes to the Origin client made in a recent update which broke compatibility with the old version. You can download the new launchers here. Don't forget to check our full guide on how to properly install and patch games from The Ultimate Collection. Thanks to @mrtnptrs for the news tip!

      Despite receiving an official mod SDK and fan-made tools that are compatible with it, Red Alert 3 got few mods when compared to its predecessors. However, one mod for Red Alert 3 took the spotlight recently - Eastern Loong. Its selling point is the addition of the fourth faction, China, with its own visual identity and techtree. It has its own way of building structures - having them drop from the sky, and the units are fully voiced, albeit in Chinese, since the development team is from China as well. There's even an article on Kotaku about the mod! Check out the mod's ModDB profile page and give it a run.

      As some of you may have already noticed, a recent Origin update apparently changed the client's way of operation, which among else rendered Bibber's fixed launchers for The Ultimate Collection useless. This means that other community fixes, parameters and mods won't work with these versions of C&C games. There is currently no solution to this problem, but we will keep you posted once there is.

      C&C:Online, the community-run multiplayer server for Command & Conquer games affected by the GameSpy shutdown, marked its third anniversary yesterday! This year alone, around 45,000 people have been playing on the servers, with the number still rising. To celebrate this anniversary, prized tournaments have been announced for the month of July, as well as a hint at a new and more convenient way to launch the games onto the service.
