Community Patch Spotlight: Red Alert 3 v1.12.6

Recommended Posts


PATCH v1.12.6
by Chris880

Here at CNCNZ.com, we value community contributions, particularly those which improve existing games. Thus, we support unofficial patches by the community.

The Red Alert 3 1.12.6 patch was made and tested by Chris880 with the help of GameReplays' Red Alert 3 staff. This patch was made mainly in order to fix bugs and improve performance of the game. It is distributed in the form of map packs that have the changes (seen below) applied, and run on top of the regular 1.12 version to enable quick switching back and forth without having to leave the game. In CNCNZ.com game nights, this will be the selected patch for multiplayer (unless mods are used).

An important warning: these maps do not transfer in the multiplayer lobby, meaning that all players need to download and install the map packs manually.

Below are the links to the latest build, as well as the full changelog.

Installation instructions

The map packs installed through the installer, to the Red Alert 3 directory. To uninstall them, simply delete that folder.


v1.12.6 changelog

  1. Fixed a bug where the Wave-Force Tower displays Defender-VX debris when destroyed on water.
  2. Fixed Empire and Allied Tech lights. (Credits to the Chinese modding community)
  3. Fixed a bug where frozen tanks can still crush infantry when they get too close.
  4. Fixed a bug where Tesla Coils do not fire at all sometimes.
  5. Fixed a bug where Bears could kill burrowed Tankbusters.
  6. Fixed a bug where Terror Drones sometimes do not damage infected units.
  7. Fixed a graphical bug where Defense Bureaus do not display proper debris when destroyed over water.
  8. Fixed a graphical bug where Flak Cannons, Defender-VX, and Wave-Force Towers rotate their turrets before finishing unpacking.
  9. Fixed a bug where Terror Drones disable the Athena Cannon's shield.
  10. Fixed a bug where Multigunner Turrets, Sentry Gun, Wave-Force Towers, Spectrum Towers, and Defender-VX can still fire while being sold.
  11. Fixed a bug where units were unable to attack certain wall segments, unless you destroy the segment next to it.
  12. Fixed a graphical bug where the Soviet Airfield displays its yellow light animations before finishing unpacking.
  13. Fixed a bug where MiG, Striker-VX, and IFV AA missiles do not damage an Assault Destroyer using a Black Hole Armor.
  14. Fixed a bug where Outposts provide build radius before finishing unpacking (Special thanks to PDZ of the Chinese modding community)
  15. Fixed Oil Derrick and Dry Dock animations. (Credits to TX1138)
  16. Fixed Empire EVA when capturing Oil Derricks and Observation Posts. (Credits to TX1138)
  17. Fixed Soviet Tesla Trooper's behavior when charging Tesla Coils.
  18. Fixed a bug where infected Nanocores can still unpack.
  19. Fixed a bug where Terror Drones disable the Assault Destroyer's Black Hole Armor.
  20. Fixed a bug where IFV missiles do not damage Tengus/VX or any aircraft that are landing on the ground.

  22. Fixed a bug where shrunk MCVs can crush other units. (Banned exploit)
  23. Fixed double shrink bug. (This means that if you shrink a unit with the normal shrink ray, and then you get the High Technology upgrade, you will be able to shrink a unit that is already under the effect of the normal shrink ray, however it will have no effect. This only has to happen once.)
  24. Fixed a bug where the Guardian Tanks' target painters can stack their effect. (From now on, the target painter that is pointed first will take effect, and the second painter is nullified.)
  25. Fixed a bug where Assault Destroyers do not absorb Tanya's fire.
  26. Applied a fix that will prevent Subs and ships from getting stuck on shores on Infinity Isle. (This bug seems to occur most frequently on this map, hence this map was the first chosen to have this fix.)
  27. Fixed a graphical bug where the Cryocopter's shrink ray can make units visually bright.
  28. Fixed a bug where Tanya's and Natasha's weapons do not damage the Assault Destroyer when they are absorbed. (The damage dealt is minimal.)
  29. Fixed a bug where the Assault Destroyer's Black Hole Armor can absorb the Proton Collider's fire.

  4. Fixed Spectrum Tower deployment animation.
  5. Fixed a bug where Wave-Force Towers can fire their first shot without charging up.
  6. Fixed a bug where you can place War Factories, Barracks, and Naval Yards directly behind each other (without leaving some space for their initial rally point).
  7. Fixed a bug where frozen Tankbusters can still burrow/unburrow from the ground.
  8. Fixed a bug where Striker-VXs, Javelins, and MiGs would not fire a missile which will finish their target.
  9. Fixed a graphical bug where Imperial Warriors would not bleed while in Banzai Charge mode.
  10. Fixed a graphical bug where the platform for the Allied Airbase (on water) would not appear until the structure finished deploying. Now the platform has a fixed deployment animation that plays directly upon placement of their Airfield.

  9. Removed the giant water ring effect caused by the Assault Destroyer's depth charge.
  10. Fixed MIRV effect for the Soviet V4 rocket. (The missile no longer displays a very saturated mushroom cloud, and the heroic effect no longer gets mixed with the original)
  11. Fixed Heroic Tsunami Tank's effects. (No longer displays a mixed effect between blue and orange, now heroic ones display just orange effects for their shells.)
  12. Fixed Heroic Vindicator's bomb effect. (No longer displays original effect + heroic effect at the same time)
