-OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy game engine supporting early
-Westwood games like Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert.
-
-Distributed mods include a reimagining and updating of both the Red
-Alert and Command & Conquer multiplayer games.
-
-You may run the game from desktop games menu or just manually
-run the game with `mono OpenRA.Game.exe Game.Mods=ra` for Red Alert
-or `mono OpenRA.Game.exe Game.Mods=cnc` for Command & Conquer.
-
-If you have problems starting the game consider switching to
-alternative Cg Renderer. You may run the game with alternative
-Cg Graphics Renderer from desktop games menu or by adding
-`Graphics.Renderer=Cg` parameter explicitly to above console commands
- (convenient for some integrated graphics cards).
-To run explicitly with a default one use `Graphics.Renderer=Gl`
-parameter. The default Graphics Renderer is a better one, so
-don't forget to upgrade your graphics hardware drivers to the
-latest version. For Cg renderer also try to upgrade nvidia-cg-toolkit
-too.
-
-The RA packages will need to be extracted to ~/.openra/Content/ra/
-before the RA mod will actually work. The C&C packages will need
-to be extracted to ~/.openra/Contet/cnc/ for C&C mod. You may
-execute OpenRA and it will suggest to download content from original
-CD or a minimal one from OpenRA site automatically. You may also try
-to download minimal content pack from OpenRA site manually by using
-OpenRA Utility:
-
-cd /usr/share/games/openra
-mono OpenRA.Utility.exe --download-url=http://open-ra.org/get-dependency.php?file=ra-packages,/tmp/ra-packages.zip
-mono OpenRA.Utility.exe --extract-zip=/tmp/ra-packages.zip,~/.openra/Content/ra/
-
-The same commands for C&C mod:
-mono OpenRA.Utility.exe --download-url=http://open-ra.org/get-dependency.php?file=cnc-packages,/tmp/cnc-packages.zip
-mono OpenRA.Utility.exe --extract-zip=/tmp/cnc-packages.zip,~/.openra/Content/cnc/
-
-But the better choice is to download a full pack from original game CD
-(or iso). However, full CD pack usage result in slower game start from
-OpenRA Lobby. It happens due to a lot of unnecessary things like video
-clips were pre-packaged in it. If you want optimal game start and all
-music themes (made by Frank Klepacki) from classic CD you should
-download them from OpenRA Forum:
-http://www.sleipnirstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=15063
-
-The minimal required files for the Red Alert mod are:
-EITHER:
- * conquer.mix
- * temperat.mix
- * interior.mix
- * snow.mix
- * sounds.mix
- * allies.mix
- * russian.mix
-OR: (Usually pretty long game start)
- * main.mix
-AND:
- * redalert.mix
-
-The minimal required files for the Command and Conquer mod are:
- * cclocal.mix
- * speech.mix
- * conquer.mix
- * sounds.mix
- * tempicnh.mix
- * temperat.mix
- * winter.mix
- * desert.mix
-
-If you have a case-sensitive filesystem you must change the filenames to
-lower case.
-
-Red Alert and C&C have been released by EA Games as freeware. They could be
-downloaded from http://www.commandandconquer.com/classic
-Unfortunately the installer is 16-bit and so won’t run on 64-bit operating
-systems. This can be worked around by using the Red Alert Setup Manager
- (http://ra.afraid.org/html/downloads/utilities-3.html).
-Make sure you apply the no-CD protection fix so all the files needed
-are installed to the hard drive.
-
-If your notebook doesn't show long battery life under OpenRA load you can
-do several things:
-1. Turn off "Show Shellmap" item under General tab of Settings menu.
-2. Edit ~/.openra/settings.yaml in the "Graphics:" section to add
-framelimiter. Add "CapFramerate: True" string there to enable framelimiter.
-The default setting is 60 frames per second. You can change it's value by
-adding "MaxFramerate: 70", for example, string in that section. Be careful
-with special tab symbols at the beginning of the strings. Don't forget to
-backup your settings file.
-
-Please note: OpenRA has 2 types of released versions:
-1. Release Versions or just Versions.
-2. Unstable Playtests Versions or just Playtests.
-Release Versions are considered as more stable ones. Playtests are also
-pretty stable in most cases but they have usually more features wich are
-needed to be tested before inclusion into release. So, if you have any
-problems, please report them to the IRC channel #openra on irc.freenode.net
-(Use http://webchat.freenode.net/ if you don't have IRC client)
-or to the bug-tracker (http://bugs.open-ra.org).
