Welcome commander to the first release of Yuri's Revenge Red-Resurrection, the YR addon bringing you a reimagined Allied and Soviet factions once again at war with almost entirely new arsenals of weapons. Red-Resurrection makes best use of the Ares enhancement (required version included in the download) including many new gameplay mechanics, graphical enhancements and stability improvements providing an overall smoother game.
Before downloading you should check out the ModDB profile including picture gallery. The downloads are also posted for the mod itself and the theme pack (includes 7 selected Frank Klepacki tracks from none C&C games). Please note the mod also supports the Red Alert 2 soundtrack, which can be enabled by copying theme.mix from either the Allied or Soviet disc into your YR directory and renamed to ecachera2theme.mix
About the Mod
Red-Resurrection began in September 2010 as a simple YR addon with some new units and an old-school attitude to modding however it quickly grew into a larger yet subtler edit including the replacement of most units coding and graphics. For instance the entire weapons and warheads code has been recreated from scratch on a per unit basis; everything has been considered and balance between factions very deliberately established. The graphics of the mod have been sourced from the community, all freely available to use albeit edited by myself for the mod.
Simply put Red-Resurrection is a light hearted, fun expansion modification for Yuri's Revenge following in the games footsteps with some goofy units, unrealistic game world and overall jolly colourful demeanour. If you are looking for fast paced explosive gameplay set in an apocalyptic wasteland dominated by sadistic super-computers and corrupt insidious inter-continental empires then this is not the mod for you. It is simple- there are two factions, the blue Allies fighting for justice, liberty and a free market and the Soviet Union forging an evil scheme to bring down capitalism forever in a horde of conscripted infantry, tank battalions and nuclear warheads.
What Does Beta Mean?
Yes, as you noticed this is a multiplayer beta. Beta means the mod is essentially incomplete, with some minor details missing or unfinished such as unit voices. Since last october I have been in education and no longer have time to develop the mod continually, so I am now releasing it for you all to play, discover incomplete features and balance mistakes and report them to me. When I have time I will definately continue development, expanding the mod with new features including a full campaign for both factions.
Beta means there will be mistakes, some minor missing features etc but I personally believe the mod to be very stable and playable otherwise I would not have released it. Furthermore the Ares version required by the mod is also in beta phase. Note that Ares does not alter your Yuri's Revenge game in any way.
