Beta 2.1

Posted on July 24, 2007 by Nighthawk

I've just uploaded the next update onto the server. This is the 1.10 conversion that was previously polled in the forums. Sorry about the delay for such a relatively simple update, but I've been away a lot recently.

Anyway, as before, the update comes in two flavours: cumulative and incremental. Both updates contain RockPatch 1.10 #0036, and both contain the fixes to make the mod work with 1.10.
Download the cumulative update only if you have the original Beta 2 files, and no updates.
If you've been using Beta 2.0c, download the incremental update. If you're using Beta 2.0b, I'd advise downloading the 2.0c incremental version, then the 2.1 incremental version.

Not much has been done with this update, considering most bugs so far have been to do with users not having some of the mod files. It's mostly a graphical update, containing the score screen for the Future Forces.

To install, make sure you know which version you need (cumulative or incremental), download, and unzip the files to your RA2 directory. Make sure you run the RockPatch installation file before playing the mod, especially if you're still using RPCE. If you're using the NPatch, uninstall it before installing the RockPatch.

You can grab the updates here, or head to the website and get them from the downloads page.
Cumulative Update (contains all fixes from Beta 2.0b, 2.0c and 2.1): Download
Incremental Update (only contains the Beta 2.1 fixes): Download.

Have fun.
Nighthawk.

Yuri Invasion Confirmed!

Posted on November 27, 2006 by Nighthawk

Urgent Battlefield Report - Eyes Only
From: 'Nighthawk', Agent, Allied Intelligence
To: , Commander, Allied Defense Forces
Commander, while we've been pre-occupied trying to get as much information on the Future Forces as possible, we seem to have neglected the other threat to our peace, Yuri. We originally thought he did not pose as much of a threat as he seems to have been holed up in Antarctica all this time doing God knows what, but he appears to have re-organised his forces entirely. Today at approximately 0200 hours, Yuri troops under the name of the 'Atlantic Legion' have seized the Russian city of Novgorod. The Soviets, who only had a small garrison in the city, were forced to retreat. The city is now in Yuri's hands. One of the Soviet soldiers stationed in the garrison, a Mladshiy Leytenant Rovodinsky, managed to snap a sizable view of one of the Yuri occupation zones as he retreated from the city in a MiG bomber using the bomber's black box. Here is that picture, unfortunately with most of Novgorod's power grid in chaos there are very few light posts running in that area of the city, and Yuri's "mood lighting" doesn't help much either, so we have lightened some of the areas so you can get a clear view of the area.

It seems that this 'Atlantic Legion' uses different vehicular units to those normally used by Yuri, we can see several heavy-tank like vehicles driving down the main road, and one rather large double barreled unit in the centre, which was unfortunately the poorest lit of all. The Soviets believe it to be an improvisation on their Apocalypse tank, but we are unsure of its armament. We have a glimpse of one of Yuri's new Sniper Turrets. These are basically the British Sniper in turret form, though we've seen them use various types of ammo before. We can also see several civilians being kept in the base, most likely for use in Yuri's Bio Reactors, and we can also see that they are being closely guarded by one of Yuri's rumoured Special Operations infantry, a Savant. Be careful of those Commander, they are armed with high-energy railgun weapons, though until now they have been largely unseen.

More information will be brought in on this incident as we can get it Commander, but for now, Novgorod is a no-go area without clearance from Command, but the Soviets seem keen to send in a strike force to retake the city, Command's not going to risk arguing with them, but you are not to intervene until ordered.

Agent Nighthawk, Allied Intelligence

Out-of-character note: I thought I'd go back to the 'in-character' news posts again, they seemed to get the story across better than normal posts :thumbsupsmiley:.

Spy Plane Report #2

Posted on September 12, 2006 by Nighthawk

Commander, with the increased threat of an invasion force coming through the vortex, the Soviets have dispatched Spy Planes to constantly survey all areas near the vortex. One of the planes sighted this picture, unfortunately though, the picture was taken around midnight (local time) and, as usual, the Spy Plane's camera isn't the best quality photography device. However, it appears to show a group of FF units heading out of the vortex area toward the south via a small bridge that they have lit up. This photo also gives us a glimpse at some of their naval units, and a better look at some of the ones we couldn't really see in the previous report. Don't worry Commander, we are stil working on improving the quality and colour of the previous picture, but you may have to wait. This one will eventually be improved and colourised too, once our analysts get around to it. Study this picture Commander. We will update the database shortly with the new information.
