Beta 2 is finally up on the server for download. It's been almost a year late, but now you can play it. However, the key thing is that it is a beta version, so there will most likely be bugs that myself and the testers haven't yet ironed out. If you do come across any bugs, please contact me in some form or another, preferably not email, as I have a habit of deleting emails from people I don't know.

The mod is in three parts like the last one, so it's not all in a massive file. You can download the mod from the new Downloads page, or from the following links:
Zip 1: Core Files (Mixes)
Zip 2: Audio Files (bag/idx)
Zip 3: Music Files (optional)

To play it, just unzip the files from these mixes into the RA2 directory. I have not yet tested the mod in a LAN or online situation yet, so you may expect Reconnection Errors. You will also notice that some of the Skirmish Modes are not yet finished, that is intentional, as I wasn't planning to put them in this beta. Naval War Extreme is functional, but suffers from the NCO Bug. Space War has the terrain, but still all the ground units and structures. The Future Forces AI is rather small at the minute, partly because I have to edit the triggers by hand to make the game think they're the Fourth Side, otherwise AI Editor reverts them to Allies.

To play this you'll need RPCE Revision #0050 or later, and v2.0a of the Terrain Expansion.
The music zip is still uploading at the time of writing, so you may get a 404 if you try to download it immediately.

Thanks for your time.
Nighthawk.

Thanks guys. Sorry about the lack of screenshots, I was in a hurry when I posted this, and since I currently have something else in the works at the minute, I haven't been able to take any. I will endeavour to get some up when I can.

You can't find them in the menu? The most likely cause of that is that you don't have the RockPatch. You need version CE with Revision #0050 or later. I'll upload the install file for CE #0052.

looks like a great mod but this is pissin me off so bad!
i am future forces vs italy on the bay of pigs map. Works fine for a while then randomly comes p with an error, i havent just created a unit or anything it just springs up EVERYTIME i try. I have the rockpatch and terrain expansion 2.02a or something which was the closest i could find to whatever you said and this is REALLY getting on my nerves because it looks like a great mod but it wont work

RockPatch 1.10? You need RockPatch CE #0050, #0051 or #0052. I haven't tested it with #0055. Also, could you give me a bit more information on what was happening, i.e. what game mode? What were you doing at the time? Do you have any other mod files in your YR folder? etc.

Soon, you won't be allowed to use RPCE #52 :blush: Thanks to VK's totalitarianistic control over the RockPatch, distribution of RPCE will be forbidden

Yeah, right. As if we'll actually allow him to do that.

Can someone share a RP 1.10 and some of the newest things VK made? I want to make a torrent of them and release them to people worldwide.

I would love to have been able to fix any of the bugs in this, unfortunately I need to know how to do that first. All I can program with is Python, and that's useless here.
Also, Gosho, look in your PM inbox, you'll find some stuff there.

No, no, CnCVK (although he seems to have changed his name to 'VK'), he's one of the RockPatch coders.
