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.
