  1. The Chronoshift is now officially open source! NOTE: Chronoshift is the new title for the RedAlert++ project. It has taken almost 10 long years of blood, sweat and tears to get us to this point, but it does not mean we are done just yet! A cleaner version of the codebase which we have been working on for the past couple of years has been pushed to the GitHub repo and we will be continuing to clean up and rewrite our currently private hosted code, and then continue all development of the project publicly on GitHub. As it stands at the moment, Chronoshift requires the original Red Alert 3.03 installation as it hooks our code into the binary and allows us to test with 1:1 accuracy. But as we develop the codebase we will be also writing the code in preparation for when we can build a fully stand-alone binary. You might be asking, "Why develop another Red Alert engine from scratch, if we already have FreeRA, FreeCNC, OpenRedAlert and OpenRA?" FreeRA, FreeCNC and OpenRedAlert are far from complete and appear to be abandoned, while OpenRA is focusing on reimagining the classic Westwood RTS titles with modern era twists such as features found later Command and Conquer titles or other RTS games. Our focus is on a classic recreation with great attention to detail on the core mechanics, more akin to OpenDUNE, hence the Chronoshift project. At this time, Chronoshift has to be built with a specific compiler due to the way it hooks into the original binary, but we are in the process of also setting up an automated build system that will allow you to download the required files without going through the build process, allowing a greater number of people to help us with testing. The Chronoshift project is hosted on GitHub under our group, (which also hosts the Thyme project: https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada/Thyme) The Assembly Armada, which you can visit here https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada You can visit Chronoshift on GitHub: https://github.com/TheAssemblyArmada/Chronoshift In the meantime...

  2. Sometimes, things happen in just a short time in this community, usually after a long lull. Our friend @Banshee from Project Perfect Mod wrote an intriguing article on the importance of proper UI in Command & Conquer. OpenRA fan who goes by the handle N/a made the October 2018 issue of the OpenRA magazine called "The Chrono", which you can read here. The project that was until now known as RedAlert++ is now renamed to Chronoshift. It is still very much in development despite being publicly silent for the most part, with a public repository expected to be released within the next week or so.
  3. We originally posted the announcement news of RedAlert++ back in September last year. RedAlert++ is an open source re-implementation of the Red Alert engine. Written from scratch in C++. It is a project to create an accurate re-implementation of the game engine used for the classic Westwood Studios RTS. Not be confused with OpenRA, a similar project. Progress has been slow, but the team have finally shown something new to the public. The terrain objects have been added to the game. You can see the full image right here. Learn more about RedAlert++ by visiting their official site.
  4. A new project called RedAlert++ has been announced. RedAlert++ is an open source re-implementation of the Red Alert engine. Written from scratch in C++. It is a project to create an accurate reimplementation of the game engine used for the classic Westwood Studios RTS. It should be noted, this is a different project and not be confused with OpenRA. You can learn more about RedAlert++ by reading the announcement topic posted here. You can also visit the RedAlert++ site.

    Introducing RedAlert++

    Introducing An open source re-implementation of the C&C Red Alert engine. Written from scratch in C++. www.openredalert.org www.twitter.com/OpenRedAlert RedAlert++ is a project to create an accurate reimplementation of the game engine used for the classic Westwood Studios RTS, Command & Conquer: Red Alert in C++. The team developing this are fans of the game who want to see it preserved and ensure it can be enjoyed properly on modern platforms. They do not have access to any of the original source code, and the project is being developed from scratch through careful examination and comparison to the original. This is to ensure that the new engine is as true to the original engine as possible, guarantee an authentically retro gaming experience. The project is not endorsed, sponsored or in any other way connected to EA/Electronic Arts and and has no intention to profit from the endeavour. In the coming months, we will be posting regular updates and working towards a public release in the near future. - Utilises the latest open source graphic and audio libraries (SDL, OpenGL and OpenAL). - - Fully compatable with the original game, allowing you to run the compiled binary as a direct replacement of your original installation. - - Fixes bugs that appear in the original game, without losing gameplay authenticity. - - Built on years of thorough research into core gameplay dynamics to deliver a genuine experience. - - Allows you to continue playing your favourite RTS on a device of your choice. - Q: Why develop another Red Alert engine from scratch, if we already have FreeRA, FreeCNC and OpenRA... A: FreeRA and FreeCNC are far from complete and appear to be abandoned while OpenRA is focusing on re-imagining the classic Westwood RTS titles with modern era twists such as features found later Command and Conquer titles or other RTS games. Our focus is on a classic recreation with great attention to detail on the core mechanics, more akin to OpenDUNE, hence the new project. Q: Why is it called OpenRedAlert, wasn't there already existing project called OpenRedAlert? A: Correct, but the project has been inactive for some years now. We approached the creator, Damien some time ago now and asked the status of the project, and if it was currently inactive, could we use the name OpenRedAlert. Damien's project is still being developed in private and he has given us permission to use the name and hopfully in the future we can bring him on board to help with development. Q: Where to download latest version of OpenRedAlert? A: At the moment, OpenRedAlert is being developed in private so we can ensure the basic engine works as required. Once we are happy with the state of the engine, we will release a public build and also create a public repository on GitHub. Q: What do I need to run OpenRedAlert? A: It's simple! - All you will need is a installation of the original C&C Red Alert (patched to 3.03), and a compiled binary from the OpenRedAlert source code, be that from a preview build or from the public repository yourself. EA released C&C Red Alert as Freeware in celebration of the release of Red Alert 3 and it is now possible to legally download a copy from the EA servers or official mirrors.
