Everything is navigated through the flAPmenu system, you won't have problems finding people to play against, day or night and if you're new to the delights of online gaming, there is no better place to start.
If you've played Red Alert 2 s Skirmish game, you won't have much of a problem with its Multiplayer. In fact, the only difference is that your opponents will be more vocal and varied in skill and predictability.
Online, however, there is a ranking system in place. And, in theory, finding a like-skilled player to mouse-duel should be simple thanks to the fact you can click on their name and see at a glance where in the world they are from and how high they sit in the RA2 rankings. In practice, rankings aren't that helpful and sometimes don't even show up.
As a guide, lose your first tournament game and you'd probably go straight in at 40, Play someone ranked around as I stupidly did he was tagged as 'unranked' when I chose to play him and you can expect a mauling. Still, the RA2 community is a pretty friendly bunch, whether they win or lose, as long as the game is a good one there are plenty of virtual handshakes and cocktails by the pool afterwards.
One game not available to the skirmisher is World Domination. You choose one of the contested territories, fight, and whether you win or lose, the overall map changes colour and, at the end of each day, a side is declared victorious. No big shakes really, but it's bizarre why you can only play Domination in x resolution.
So, little has changed then. Online Red Alert 2 is just as good as all the other Westwood games have been since time began. It's not as good looking as many other RTS games we could mention, neither is it particularly the most strategically challenging game around.
As long as you know each unit and every keyboard shortcut, you can pretty much rule the online roost. While you're there, however, Red Alert 2 is a lot of fun, easy to play and unendingly popular - and if you've already got the game, it would be a crime not to bring your modem to the party. It's not all 'destroy the base' so If you're stuck we've hopefully got the solution.
Enjoy It while It lasts because it looks like it's the final 2D version to come from Westwood. And then we'll only have the Army Men series to look forward to in that genre. Oh dear. Train about 15 conscripts and head to the north. Mend the bridge to the west of the second small base to get your hands on four tanks. Go up and attack the Pentagon. Capture the Allied refineries to get some cash. Construct a shipyard, build six or seven Subs and take them down south to sink all the Destroyers and the Allied shipyard.
Build a lot of tanks and head down the left of the map. Destroy the construction yard the barrels nearby make it easier and they'll give up and shut down the base. Finish everything off and remember that the Chrono Miners count too. Capture the three derricks in front of your base. Fortify the building down the slope.
Use about fourV3 Rocket Launchers to clear up any pillboxes on the way north. Mop up infantry with Tesla Troopers and tanks.
Destroy the pillboxes around the base with V3s again while using everything else to destroy enemy structures. You can use some engineers to repair the skyscrapers around the base to give you a fortified advantage if you want. Before you capture the battle lab, train ten Flak Troopers and place them nearby.
Beef up your tank division then hold on tight until the timer runs down. There's two ways to do this, an easy way and a hard way. Guess which one we went for? Build up two or three Subs to guard the shore and about four Flak Cannons to defend the air.
Now the sneaky bit: send about five conscripts and Tesla Troopers to the east to take over and guard the lighthouse at the end of the map. When the invasion starts an Allied MCV should attempt to set itself up close by. Blow it up before it can build anything or else you're going to have a lengthy battle on your hands. Your own base should be safe from attack if you've fortified the buildings nearby and left a few Tesla Troopers guarding it. Go to the left and capture the derrick to get some cash.
Travel around, fortifying the buildings near any enemies to give you an advantage. Keep some engineers nearby to repair them if they get damaged. It's best to go in by the middle enhance to the north and take out the tanks in the park before moving in your Tesla Troopers to charge the Eiffel Tower. Start up your base and quickly send some troops off to the left to stem any landings. Take some conscripts over to the house on the small island to gain a bonus.
For another cash bonus, take an amphibious transport along the bottom left until you reach land and you'll find a crate. Build up some minor defences, then concentrate on building Subs and a few Sea Scorpions.
Deploy them near the housed island to take out the Koreans when the timer runs down. Keep the dreadnought reinforcements at a distance. Defend your shipyard from any remaining ships while stocking up on Subs. Head to the west and then up the small channel in the middle. Use your Dreadnoughts to take out the Prism Towers. Then sub-rush the Allied fleets and the shipyards.
And you don't even need to set foot in their base. I'm uploading new versions as quickly as possible. To install mod, copy all files in archive to your clean Yuri's Revenge folder.
