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.

I just uploaded a new map that was sent to me by DutterDutt. The author says that the map is for naval battles only against human players, not AI. And also it contains some triggers. I think it should be interesting! (I love maps with triggers ;) ).

Custom saved games collection
Posted by RaZor on Wednesday, 25-Oct-2017 18:25:58 +0300
Just uploaded some of saved games I made when I played custom missions.
Also I found some other saved games on my old PC. Those saved games were made by my friend long time ago. I uploaded all of them too. Maybe they will interest someone else. :)

The URL where the files are stored: ftp://ra.afraid.org/pub/redalert/savedgames/custom
Please note, these saved games were made in Red Alert v2.00 (Aftermath), so you will need this version if you want to play them.
Testdrive: Stealth Squad mission
Posted by RaZor on Wednesday, 25-Oct-2017 18:18:05 +0300
Played this one today. Mission made by Pookie (what a funny nickname! :)).

Quick, not hard, and has something uhmm...unusual. 7/10.

Played this one last night. It's long and similar to Nosferatu's Meanest mission, but much easier. Also I very enjoyed playing for the Ukrainian side.

PS> Actually I was planning to capture the Chronosphere instead of destroying it, but something went wrong :)
PPS> looks like I beat my personal record for casualties! :>

Forgot to say: thank you Aaro!

New maps uploaded

Uploaded 4 high quality mega maps made by MSZP-Reborn.
In fact, these maps were uploaded to public ftp somewhere in 2014, but I forgot to check them for some reason.
Forgive me, author. I hope you are not disappointed. Anyway, its always better late than never. ;)

You can grab them from here: http://ra.afraid.org/maps/?author=MSZP-Reborn&size=mega
Testdrive: Die-hard mission [x10]
Posted by RaZor on Friday, 31-Mar-2017 18:22:11 +0300
Finally, tested Die-Hard mission, originally created by Wilco Engelsman. It seem to work fine:
All trigs and teamtypes works as they should without crashing the game. A few 'zombie' units found at the enemy base but this doesn't affect gameplay.
There were 2 freezes during gameplay caused by nVidia GPU or it's driver. With integrated intel GPU Red Alert runs perfectly without any freeze at all. However integrated GPU really sucks(slow), even with slightly old games like TES4,TES5,Starcraft2 and also eats much system memory. Thats why I'm not using it.

Tested on: i5-4690 / Win7x64 PCA=off / Red Alert version 2.00
Music track: unknown, named as 117.mp3 on my PC
RA v3.03 trainer removed
Posted by RaZor on Sunday, 12-Feb-2017 21:23:34 +0200
I have removed RA v3.03 trainer from the archive: the trainer itself uses CheatEngine that is detected as malware by various antivirus software. Ofcouse it's false-positive but who cares? proof1, proof2, proof3

Thanks you google for your net dictatorship! ;)
Die Hard mission updated
Posted by RaZor on Thursday, 09-Feb-2017 17:57:57 +0200
I have reuploaded Die Hard mission: fixed buggy triggers which causes game to crash. Many thanks to Zyrco who reported broken mission and helped to fix it.
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.
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.

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

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.
