I repackaged MO1.2 files so that it can be played without the mod launcher on any official YR 1.001 releases, including the one on Origin.

I also made some minimum edits so that it's compatible with Ares. Ares is not required, but it definitely makes the game run a lot smoother on newer operating systems. It works with Ares 1.0, and probably future versions as well.

As a bonus, I made some minimum edits to the first Allied mission so that it can be completed. I haven't tested if the other 6 Allied missions can be completed, but I assume so. (Yes, the Soviet campaign can be completed even in original MO1.2.)

How do you download Ares 1.0 and make it so that it runs with the 1.2 mod (and perhaps the vanilla games)? 


Also, can anyone give a good description of what the game modes are?

How do you download Ares 1.0 and make it so that it runs with the 1.2 mod (and perhaps the vanilla games)? 


Also, can anyone give a good description of what the game modes are?

Game modes are the following:

Battle: same as Standard in current version.

Free for All: No alliances.

Unholy Alliance: same in current version.

Megawealth: same as Oil Control.

Judgement: same as No Bases.

Meteor Swarm: same as Mental AI Boost option.

Bloody Games: same as Infantry Only.

Tech Power: almost same as Tech Share.


Not found in version 3.3:

Armor Fist: Vehicles only.

Naval War: Naval units only. Basic vehicles/infantry and ore miners still allowed.

Calm Mind: Mind-controllers unavailable (PsiCorps Trooper, Yuri Elite and Mastermind can't be built.)

Blinded: When ConYard is deployed, buildings and units are cloaked in a large radius. Basic infantry/vehicles gain detector ability.

Meat Grinder: Only Tier 1 stuff. Claims it is good for new YR/MO players.

Own Tempo: Defenses are unavailable.

Foresight: Fog of War is disabled (can see entire map at start). Global psychic sensor ability for all players.

Land Rush: all MCVs of players start in middle of map. They have to move to find a good location for base.

Armageddon: After getting to Tier 3, you can build every superweapon in the game.

Atomic Flash: Nuclear Reactor available after deploying ConYard. Nukes are found in almost all crate, either ready to fire or explodes immediately.

Elite Force: All units are elite in the beginning (uses elite weapons).

Harvested: Advanced 'uber' miners (more health, speed, ore storage)

Ultimate Out: Support superweapons (e.g. Chronosphere) always available even if Superweapons are not checked in options.

Unknown War: Crates are everywhere, containing random stuff.

Tech Owned: All buildings in tech tree available after just deploying ConYard.

Unspecialised: Country-specific abilities disabled, but not country-specific units.

Limit Break: Build limits disabled (e.g. can train more than one Tanya).


Note: Info found in 1.2 website, so can't confirm right now if some of these modes are possibly removed or not.
