  3. I've recently reminded to play Red Alert 2, one of my favorite oldy game. I have an iMac so I've known that it's not gonna be so simple. This is what I tried: PortingKit - didn't work Crossover - didn't work xQuartz - didn't work( I barely know to use it) PlayonMac - didn't work So I've done something 2 day's ago, and I started the game from it's Installation folder. I clicked on "gamemd.exe" and choose to start it with Wine. It worked!! But yesterday it didn't. I know Ive done something along with that wine trick but I can't remember what and I'm so angry about it... I tried: DDWRAPPER, C&C:GraphicsPatch, editing the RA2MD.INI file, the video section, putting everything to value "1". NOTHING! The game is starting but with a really nasty GRAPHIC PROBLEM. White tiles along with black one appear and when it enters the menu, a black or white tiles are FLASHING at the TOP and in the MIDDLE of the User Interface. Everything is flashing and if I start a new game, it tickles and flashing just like a broken bulb of light, idk. I will leave some pictures.Sorry for my bad english. System Specs: OS X El Capitan iMac (24-inch) Processor: 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory: 4 GB 800 MHz 8800 GS 512 MB I really wanna play this game so much. Thank you!
  4. In this week's Throwback Thursday feature, we continue with our Iconic C&C Units sub-series with the Terror Drone from Red Alert 2. This unorthodox spider-like mechanism was no joke - it was a blazing-fast vehicle that could be used for scouting and slowly dismanling enemy vehicles from the inside. Their drills could instantly kill infantry in the same way Attack Dogs could. However, their weaknesses were Service Depots and Repair IFVs, and if the infected vehicle would chronoshift (e.g. a Chrono Miner), the Terror Drone would be left behind. Enemies without the ability to repair an infected vehicle had to force-fire on it to destroy the Terror Drone that was inside at the cost of the said unit.

  5. After an unexpected month-long silence, our Throwback Thursday feature is back. This week, we remember the "bosses" of the Red Alert 2 Allied campaign - the Soviet Black Guard. This was a small but powerful defense force positioned around the Kremlin, consisting of four elite Apocalypse Tanks and a few defensive structures, protecting Premier Romanov in the final Allied push on Moscow. They also appeared in a cutscene that played after the mission ended, flanked by a Harrier squadron. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image.

  6. This week's pick for Music Monday is another credits theme, this time from Red Alert 2. A seemingly looped composition, this track is quite a good pick for testing out the bass on your speakers or headphones. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don’t forget to share this on social media using the hashtags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday. Also be sure to follow our new C&C Radio feature on the main site for more C&C music!
  7. In this week's Throwback Thursday, we remember a plot point in the Red Alert 2 Soviet campaign which has Yuri manipulating Premier Romanov to give him more power and launch more aggressive attacks against the Allies. While the promotional material for the game indicates that the Soviet invasion at the start of Red Alert 2 was a simple backstab by Romanov (who was an Allied puppet placed at the head of the USSR following the events of the original game), made as an act of revenge for the previous war, which caught the Allies completely by surprise. Although the Soviet campaign itself is non-canon, this might raise the question was the entire Soviet rebellion Yuri's plot the whole time. Either way, this strained Romanov's mind so much, alongside an assassination attempt made to frame Vladimir, that it eventually killed the Premier.

  8. New versions of Open Source HVA Builder (v2.14) and Open Source Voxel Viewer (v1.83) have been released over at Project Perfect Mod. They feature an updated version of the Voxel Engine, fixes for 360° rotation, the ability to cap the HVA Builder's rendering speed to 60 FPS (which is on by default), the ability to change between games and palettes, fix for the View Transform option, and restoration of HVA Builder options from v2.11 and v2.12 that were missing in v2.13. Click here for more information and download links.
  9. For this week's Music Monday, we picked the track Destroy from Red Alert 2. One of the more popular tracks which made it to the (criminally short and rare) Ultimate Collection soundtrack list, Destroy is one of the most intense tracks in the series, featuring excellent guitar sections. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hashtags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.

  10. Today's Throwback Thursday goes back to C&C's very own time lord - the Chrono Legionnaire from Red Alert 2. This tier 3 infantry unit could completely disable an enemy unit or structure until it is completely phased out of time. However, its teleportation device (Chronosphere technology adapted to be non-lethal to humans) had a major drawback - the longer the distance a Chrono Legionnaire had to travel, the longer it took for him to fully phase in at his destination, leaving him completely helpless and vulnerable to enemy fire until the phasing process was complete, which could be bypassed by "hopping" through shorter distances. As a bonus, half of the copies of the Red Alert 2 Collector's Edition came with pewter figurines of the Chrono Legionnaire (the other half were Tesla Troopers).

  11. Hello! I've been trying to find the lyrics of this amazing song and even asked Frank Klepacki himself, but I only got this from him: Does someone else have more info about the lyrics? I'm running out of options :/ You can listen it from here: http://88.208.38.90/tunes/Frank%20Klepacki%20-%20Grinder%20(C&C%20Red%20Alert%202) Is the second one from the list.
  12. It's time for Throwback Thursday again! This week, we remember one of the more bizarre superweapons in Command & Conquer - the Allied Weather Control Device from Red Alert 2. Developed by Albert Einstein (because of course it was), this device was capable of firing a beam into the sky which would move clouds above a designated area in order to unleash powerful lightning storms which could electrocute infantry and demolish lighter and moderately armoured structures. This one shows how the Command & Conquer series, and particularly the Red Alert universe, was no stranger to quirky technologies.

  13. In this week's Music Monday feature, we bring you something special - the hidden early mix of the main theme of Red Alert 2 - Hell March 2. It found its way into the final game within ra2.mix\local.mix\intro.aud, with some differences about halfway through the track and a slightly shorter intro. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hashtags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  14. Our Music Monday feature is back again, this time with one of the lesser exposed tracks from Red Alert 2 - Tension, an upbeat electronic track from start to finish. A new track will be posted next Monday. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hashtags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  15. Another Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge server alternative run by fans has emerged recently. NGWOL, much like XWIS, mimicks the old Westwood Online server and utilizes its lobby structure. Ladders for both games are available and functional, and the tool provided can have the games switch back and forth between NGWOL and XWIS. Information on signing up and connecting can be found on their website.
  16. Over a month ago, the team at GVMERS, who had previously covered the fate of the cancelled FPS Tiberium, created a video on the entire C&C franchise. What you are looking at above is the corrected, definitive version - certain facts about things that happened behind the scenes in Westwood Studios, EA Pacific, EA Los Angeles and Victory Games have been proofread, and each game is now presented in higher detail, in order to better describe what made Command & Conquer what it is, in both its good and bad times. The video is now 10 minutes longer in total, so be sure to check it out!
  17. 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.
  18. C&C Music Monday returns after a week off with something different. Over the coming weeks we are going to be featuring awesome remixes and covers of classic Command & Conquer songs. This week we kick things off with "Hell March to the Apocalypse" by The Tiberian Sons. This is one super heavy cover of Frank Klepacki's original work. Don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  19. The modding community for Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 is alive and kicking, and now another tool for all the map creators has been released by Starkku. MapTool is a small open-source tool designed to apply changes to tile, overlay and object data of map files of Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 based on predefined conversion profiles. It is capable of performing operations such as converting maps from one terrain theater or another. You can learn more about this new tool by checking out this topic.
  20. Long time visitors know that Mondays around here are C&C Music Mondays. And this week our pick comes from the Red Alert 2 soundtrack. It's "Power". Part techno, part rock. And one of my favourites. It's clear that Frank Klepacki did some amazing work on the Red Alert 2 soundtrack. As always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  21. Here we go with this week's pick for C&C Music Monday. And it's back to the Red Alert 2 soundtrack for this one with "Motorized". Part techno, part rock, mixed in with a deep base sound. Another classic Red Alert 2 track from Frank Klepacki. And as always, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  22. It's Monday, so that means it's time for this week's C&C Music Monday post. This week, it's "C&C In The House" from the Red Alert 2 soundtrack. A fast techno track from Frank Klepacki. It also features an awesome heavy rock riff from the 1:05 mark. Remember, don't forget to share this on social media using the hash tags #CnCMusicMonday and #MusicMonday.
  23. While a bit late, the new Throwback Thursday has finally arrived! This week, we remember the Soviet Crazy Ivan, which first appeared in C&C: Red Alert 2 from 2000. These infantrymen were literally so drunk that they were keen on placing timed explosives on every unit or structure within their reach, even friendly ones. The resulting explosions were large, violent and even had a brief appearance of a skull. The only units they wouldn't like to blow up were transport vehicles. One Crazy Ivan assassinated General Carville prior to Operation: Mirage in the original Red Alert 2 time line. The unit was likely named after a Soviet submarine manoeuvre from the Cold War, which included a hard turn in order to clear the submarine's baffles (blind area in the rear) and quickly engage potential followers. Interestingly, the original concept art showed a Crazy Ivan wielding knives instead of explosives. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image.

  24. Christmas is just around the corner, so in this week's Throwback Thursday, we look back at a special 2-player map: Happy Trails. It was originally released as a downloadable map in the Red Alert 2 map pack #2, and was included in the main maps .mix file of the Yuri's Revenge expansion pack. In the center of the map, scattered ore and gem fields formed a Christmas tree, on which several bonus crates are found and serve as ornaments. The mentioned map pack was released on 22nd December 2000, just in time for the holiday. Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image.

  25. For Throwback Thursday this week, we remember the tunnel logic introduced in Tiberian Sun from 1999. Units could traverse a tunnel between two ends as if it were a normal path, only protected from above. The logic was quite well-integrated, as the units could do everything they could outside of the tunnel, including attacking enemies in range. They would also make use of tunnels when being ordered to move to a place they could only access by going through it, instead of being given special orders for it, which shows how well they were "fused" into the game's code. They also appeared fully coded and with art in Red Alert 2, but were not used in any map for some reason. Still, they can be added in the FinalAlert map editor.
