About This File

Ever wondered where RA:APB started? Well, you can see for yourself! Back in 2002, two gents known as Agent Gibson and 13f7h4nd3d (Lefthanded) hatched an idea to build a Red Alert 1 themed mod for Renegade. This was a bold idea, as Renegade had only released earlier that same year. But they got to work, and Renegade Alert was born.

Unlike all later versions which are "total conversions" aka standalone games, this initial release is a "pkg mod", or single-file self-contained mod, which was common in those days. It makes use of Westwood's built-in mod-loader, which works by using Renegade as a foundation, pulling what it needs from the base game, and loading new (modified) content on top of it to produce the intended experience.

To play: (Renegade is required, version does not matter)

  1. Extract the .pkg file from the .7z file in the download.
  2. Paste it into your Renegade/data folder, and then run the game.
  3. Host a multiplayer game, and on the "map cycle" selection screen, choose "RedAlertMod" from the oft-ignored dropdown menu at the top labeled "Mod package".
  4. A single map will then appear in the list - ra_keep_off_the_grass - which you will want to double click to move into the rotation list.
  5. Click "start game" and travel in time all the way back to the dawn of Renegade modding!

Enjoy!

Humble beginnings, nice.
I played a bit with my bots, and aside from pathfinding issues, we had a cool battle. Interesting how I don't think anyone back then thought this was possible in the future, let alone such an old version of the game being playable by modern bots :D
