Welcome to Red Alert Archive - the largest Red Alert site on the net!

First of all - This site is all about my favorite game - Command & Conquer: Red Alert!
As you already may or may not know, Red Alert is an excellent real-time strategy game. It was created by Westwood Studios Inc. in 1996 and it still remains one of the top representatives of the whole real-time strategy genre.

Command & Conquer: Red Alert is in my opinion, the best game available for the pc. It has great graphics, missions, and it's fun! You choose either the side of the Allies or the Soviets. So, wondering how Red Alert happened in the first place? Why don't you read the amazing story behind this game.

If you are interested, please scroll down to find news, infos, thousands of maps, utilities, many useful downloads, cheats, etc ... You can also download Red Alert game for free!

Testdrive: AA-Guns
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 02-Dec-2016 22:25:17 +0200
Hello folks, today I will be reviewing the AA-Guns mission, made by Mario.G.

7/10. Short, not hard. But fun.
Don't blame me for the music too much ;}
Crooked hands
Posted by RaZor on Tuesday, 29-Nov-2016 20:12:32 +0200
Today I have fixed video playback issue that was caused by some kind of misconfiguration (yeah, my fault). From now, all my videos should play fine without any lag or glitches.
Have fun!
Testdrive: Break-in
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 25-Nov-2016 22:35:16 +0200
It's yet another friday. So why not play favorite game again? :]
As I said before, this time I will be reviewing soviet mission. The mission is named "Break-in", designed by Justin Pereira.
I speeded up the video by 50% to make it a bit shorter.

8/10. This mission is not hard at all. I think it can be beaten much quicklier without need to build anything, just by using Justin and Super APC with supporting units (mechanic and medic). Despite that, mission is very well designed, it has nice storyline and funny dialogs. Interesting fact that BBird (guy who created tons of high quality RA stuff) rated it 10/10.

I'm looking for someone who can share old Pentium II/Pentium III stable working Slot1 motherboard and ISA Creative Sound Blaster card to my project. I just want to recover my old retro computer to fulfill my nostalgic needs. ;)
If you wish to share some spare hardware pease drop me an email.

By the way, I'm working on global update for RA-Archive. Work goes slowly and steadily. New lightweight framework and layout for it is almost completed. The only parts left to finish are the modules for implemening new features to website. Old templates and data sets also needs to be converted for use with new framework. I hope I will finish all this stuff by the beginning of next year.
Testdrive: Midnight Descent
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 18-Nov-2016 23:41:39 +0200
Visitor Chronoa reported that he/she had problem with "Midnight Descent" mission by Eugene Varnavsky.
After quick research I found incomplete definition of reinforcement TeamType then fixed it. So there is no choice but to play this allied mission. Enjoy my another video.

I rate this one: 7/10. Not bad. Slightly better than previous mission by this author. Btw, fixed version already uploaded to the mission archive.
Testdrive: Run Like Hell mission
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 11-Nov-2016 22:05:15 +0200
This time I reviewed another single player mission called "Run Like Hell", created by Michael Covington.


* all music in this video is used for promotional purposes only, all rights are retained by the artists or their labels.

9/10. I like it! Quick, but not easy. I lost 3 times in row before I completed it! :>
Also I'm getting little bit bored playing allied missions, next time I'll play soviet one.
Better late than never

Happy 20th birthday, Red Alert!

Testdrive: D-Day mission
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 04-Nov-2016 21:55:19 +0200
This one is related to the Saving Private Ryan movie (one of the best movies imo). Creator is unknown.


* all music in this video is used for promotional purposes only, all rights are retained by the artists or their labels.

I'm giving it 10/10. Excellent mission, much better than official missions. I feel kinda sad that the author is unknown, because he/she did very good job!
Testdrive: Cannon Fodder mission
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 28-Oct-2016 20:02:19 +0300
Today I have tested another single player mission I havent played before. The mission is called Cannon Fodder, made by Eugene Varnavsky.

Who said thiefs are useless? *oh, blame that fat guy who made "most useless unit" video, lol just kiddin* Watch my new video and you will see how awesome these guys are!

* all music in this video is used for promotional purposes only, all rights are retained by the artists or their labels.

My rate is: 5/10. Nothing special, just a skirmish-like mission. Well, it was funny stealing all the credits from enemy.
By the way, just for information: Zhelezny Zanaves => Железный Занавес => Iron Curtain.

Also I'm thinking about speeding up long (>10 mins) videos to 2x or 4x, but can't decide what to do with game sounds.
Testdrive: Meeting mission
Posted by RaZor on Sunday, 23-Oct-2016 22:34:46 +0300
Just testdrived a small mission called "Meeting", made by Aaro Ruohonen. I have never tested/played it before because the author added his work by itself to the Missions section.

The video:

* all music in this video is used for promotional purposes only, all rights are retained by the artists/labels.

My rate to this mission: 7/10. Cool and quick mission, but I was little bit annoyed to wait for enemy reinforcements.
Anyway, thank you Aaro for all your stuff!
Meanest mission
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 21-Oct-2016 15:10:05 +0300
I have uploaded a new mission called "Meanest mission" to the Missions section, made by Nosferatu.

I played it much and I can say that mission is well designed, long (for average player like myself are) and full of "surprizes"! And yes, it's really hard, one of hardest mission I ever played: those invulnerable guys with C4 brought so much butthurt to me! :)

This time I decided do not create testdrive video with this mission, because it will be really long (about 2 hours) and will spoil all interesting moments.

My rate to this mission: 9/10. Good job Nosferatu!
Testdrive: Putin's convoy mission
Posted by RaZor on Tuesday, 18-Oct-2016 23:09:42 +0300
Hello everybody! Today I had some time to test new RA stuff people uploaded to ftp/sent by email.

First I decided to try "Putin's convoy" mission made by Goatmessiah (uploaded to ftp). The mission is good and hard enough, but it's also broken: After I destroyed the convoy, the mission doesn't end. Then I destroyed all enemy stuff on the map but nothing happened. I think there is buggy/missed trigger in the map.

Goatmessiah, if you see this message please fix your mission. Then I will test it again and put to the Missions section.

The video where I playing this mission:

Just wanna say that I fixed Aegean Conflict mission package. It was missing installation batch file, so I created ACinst.bat file by myself and put it back to package. No other changes has been made.
Thanks to Sad_princess for reporting this.

Dear RA Fans!

I regret to inform you that Red Alert Archive project is now officially closed. As of now, there are no concrete future plans for the site after the main goal "to keep as many original Red Alert stuff as possible" is achieved. I have also realized that the old red alert community is dead. So thats why I decided to close site and leave this place as memorial of such great game.

Please don't worry, the site is not going to shutdown. Site will work as before just without updates. Domain name and server is still in good people's hands. The database and all files are scheduled for backup on every day.

Lastly, I would like to thank people, without whom the site would not be the way it is today: BBird, RWP, PuMa, Rob, MadeMan, Aaro, redeyeman, Vasylly, Joshua Anderson.

Good luck and good bye!

P.S. -1 Player, haha :)
Map Archive is not in beta stage anymore!
Posted by RaZor on Tuesday, 14-Jan-2014 23:24:14 +0200
I have spent much time past weekend, and now I think it’s safe to say that Map Archive section is not in beta stage anymore!

List of changes:
- added ~300 maps
- removed broken/incomplete/empty maps
- removed 99% of duplicates
- map thumbnails are now more detailed and dispays all structures and units placed on map
- removed useless information like "precentage of ore",etc from map listing
- filled author information and map descriptions for most known maps

Now I'm think is time to close old "Maps", "Mega maps" and "RaZor's maps" sections and replace them with this one.
