Issues

  • Gameplay is extremely slow when using any version below Cedega 4.1, to the point where it becomes unplayable. If you are using 4.1, the best performance I had with an as high as possible resolution was 800x600x16. Anything higher and the game becomes unplayable slow. This might be because of my Geforce 4 Ti 4200 though. Perhaps someone with a better card has better performance.
  • Networkplay doesn't work.

How to install

  1. Insert the first CD and mount it.
  2. Start the setup and follow the instructions. You can install the Westwood internet stuff, but it won't work, so you might as well uncheck that. Any install path should work so you're free to customize the install location.
  3. Download and install the latest patch (see the above patch list). The patcher will pop-up a box saying "Missing or Invalid Registery/INI entry" hit ok and navigate to the location where you installed Red Alert 2. When you're in that directory, click on Ra2.exe and then let the installer patch the game.
  4. Copy all the .mix files (from both CDs) to the RA2 game directory.
  5. Apply the crack, make sure you check on "Run Directory" if you use Point2Play.
  6. Run the game.

Description

Wielding strange new technologies and hungering for revenge, the Soviet Army invades America. Overwhelmed Allied forces, unprepared for the surprise attack, are decimated. Will freedom be crushed under the heels of Communist aggression?
