OpenRA - Command and Conquer Red Alert

English

OpenRA - Command and Conquer Red Alert is an open source adaptation of the proprietary game Command and Conquer Red Alert real time strategy game.

OpenRA is a project that recreates and modernizes the classic Command & Conquer real time strategy games.

OpenRA - Command and Conquer Red Alert.

It supports multiplayer games, but for others to join your game, you must forward a port in your router for them to connect to.

By default, OpenRA uses TCP port 1234 and you can easily see here if it is open.

The original Command & Conquer: Red Alert is a real-time strategy video game of the Command & Conquer franchise, produced by Westwood Studios and released by Virgin Interactive Entertainment in 1996.

The second game to bear the Command & Conquer title, Red Alert is the prequel to the original Command & Conquer of 1995 and takes place in the alternate early history of Command & Conquer when Allied Forces battle an aggressive Soviet Union for control over the European mainland.

On August 31, 2008, Electronic Arts, who acquired Westwood Studios in 1998, rendered Command & Conquer: Red Alert freeware.

OpenRA is distributed as portable AppImages that run on most modern 64-bit Linux distributions.

So begin by downloading the appimage here.

I recommend creating a games directory under home/username and copy the appimage there.

So open a terminal window:

cd Games

Press Enter,

Then make the appimage executable:

chmod +x OpenRA-Red-Alert-x86_64.AppImage

Press Enter,

Now just type:

./OpenRA-Red-Alert-x86_64.AppImage

And the game begins.

NOTE: I recommend you create a Game directory under home/username/Games, where you put all AppImage games and logos, then create a launcher on your desktop.
