Yuri’s Revenge has been declared the largest expansion pack for any Westwood Studios game, and features not only new campaigns (7 Allied and 7 Soviet missions), but a whole new third side to play.

long time Command & Conquer fan here, new to this subreddit and to this community. After tampering with a lot of files and downloads, I finally managed to get RA2 and YR working on my Windows 10 PC, so I thought I would make a guide for it to help my fellow C&C players.

This guide should work for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 as well, but I can't confirm because I don't have any copies of those.

You will need both original CD's (Allied and Soviet) and a working serial key to install RA2 with this guide. For Yuri's Revenge you need its own CD and serial key.

Yuri

You will need about 2 GB of disk space and 250 MB of downloaded files.

Step 1. Installing the game files
Red Alert 2 Yuri Revenge New Patch Software

Insert either Red Alert 2 CD (Allied or Soviet) in the drive. If the installation works without errors, you can skip to step 3. If not, here is how to get around it.

Create a new directory for Red Alert 2. The default directory for the CD installation is C:WestwoodRA2.

Open the root directory of the CD by right-clicking on the drive in This PC and clicking Open. You can also use Explore CD in the RA2 Autorun.

Copy the following files from the CD's to your new RA2 directory. All files must be placed in the same directory. You will have to do this for both CD's.

You need the following files from the Allied CD:

You need the following files from the Soviet CD:

You need the following files from either CD:

You need the following files from the INSTALL folder on either CD:

You need the following files from the GAME1.CAB archive in the INSTALL folder:

To open a CAB archive, I recommend installing the 7-Zip File Manager. You can also use the portable version. With 7-Zip installed, right-click on GAME1.CAB, select 7-Zip in the context menu and click Open archive. To extract the files from 7-Zip, select them, click the Extract button on the toolbar, choose the correct directory and click OK.

You can download the registry entries for RA2 from here. Select the correct operating system bitness (32-bit or 64-bit) and enter your RA2 directory and RA2 serial key without dashes (e.g. 1234561234561234561234 instead of 123456-123456-123456-1234) in the options on the left. To install the entries, click Download and run the downloaded file. Click Run, Yes or OK on all confirmation dialogs.

Step 3. Installing the RA2 1.006 patch

Download the patch here, extract the installer from the ZIP file and run it. If you did all previous steps correctly, it will install without errors.

Step 4. Installing the no-CD patch from XWIS (required for Windows 10)

The XWIS multiplayer client provides a legal no-CD patch for RA2. You need this patch to play RA2 on Windows 10 because Windows 10 does not support SafeDisc copy protection. You can also install this patch if you want to play RA2 without a CD on other versions of Windows. Otherwise, you can skip this step.

Download the Red Alert 2 multiplayer client from XWIS here.

To get separate files from the XWIS client, you can install it to a separate directory (NOT your Red Alert 2 directory) and copy them, or open the installer with an archive manager such as 7-Zip.

You need the following files (replace the existing ones):

Do not replace any other files! You may think updating all files is a good idea, but the XWIS client is MP only and some files do not work for the single-player campaigns. You only need these 3 files, which will work with single-player.

If you want to install YR, you should do it now. Refer to part II for the process.

Step 6. Installing multiplayer (optional)

There are two ways to play RA2 multiplayer: using the official XWIS client or using Red Alert 2 Mode with the CnCNet client, which requires Yuri's Revenge. If you have YR, I recommend the latter as it has more active players and provides some bug fixes from YR. To install either one, refer to parts III and IV of this guide. If you want to install both, I recommend making a separate copy of the RA2 directory for each one.

In addition to an online client, I recommend installing the 12 official map packs found here. All you have to do is download the ZIP files and extract them to your RA2 directory.

That's all you need to play RA2. To play the game, run GAME.EXE. You can create a shortcut to this file on the desktop.

If you experience errors or performance issues in the game, you may need to set GAME.EXE and RA2.EXE to Windows 98 compatibility mode (open the file context menu, Properties, Compatibility tab, Run this program in compatibility mode, select Windows 98/Windows ME).

Part II. Yuri's Revenge

Insert the Yuri's Revenge CD in the drive. If the installation works without errors, you can skip to step 3. If not, here is how to get around it.

Open the root directory of the YR CD by right-clicking on the drive in This PC and clicking Open. You can also use Explore CD in the YR Autorun.

Copy the following files from the CD to the RA2 directory. Yuri's Revenge must be installed in the same directory as RA2. If you want to have a RA2 installation without YR, you can make a copy of the RA2 directory now, before installing YR.

You need the following files from the root directory of the CD.

You need the following files from the INSTALL folder on the CD:

You need the following files from the GAME*.CAB archive in the INSTALL folder:

Note that GAME*.CAB is a multi-volume archive (GAME1.CAB through GAME6.CAB). You need a file manager that supports multi-volume CAB archives. With 7-Zip, you can open the multi-volume archive just by opening the first volume (GAME1.CAB).

You also need files from the TAUNTS folder, which is located in an blank-name folder in the GAME*.CAB archive. 7-Zip will show the blank name as a single underscore (_).

You need the following files from TAUNTS (they go in the TAUNTS subfolder of your RA2 directory):

Step 2. Installing the Windows registry entries

You can download the registry entries for YR from here. Select the correct operating system bitness and enter your RA2 directory and YR serial key without dashes in the settings on the left. To install the entries, click Download and run the downloaded file. Click Run, Yes or OK on all confirmation dialogs.

Download the patch here, extract the installer from the ZIP file and run it. If you did all previous steps correctly, it will install without errors.

Step 4. Installing the no-CD patch from XWIS (required for Windows 10)

The XWIS multiplayer client provides a legal no-CD patch for YR. You need this patch to play YR on Windows 10 because Windows 10 does not support SafeDisc copy protection. You can also install this patch if you want to play YR without a CD on other versions of Windows. Otherwise, you can skip this step.

Download the Yuri's Revenge multiplayer client from XWIS here.

To get separate files from the XWIS client, you can install it to a separate directory (NOT your Red Alert 2 directory) and copy them, or open the installer with an archive manager such as 7-Zip.

You need to replace GAMEMD.EXE, RA2MD.EXE and YURI.EXE from your installation with three copies of YURI'S REVENGE.EXE from the XWIS client (rename the copies to keep the same names).

You also need the XYR.DLL file.

Do not replace any other files! You may think updating all files is a good idea, but the XWIS client is MP only and some files do not work for the single-player campaigns. You only need these 4 files, which will work with single-player.

There are two ways to play YR multiplayer: using the official XWIS client or using the CnCNet client. I recommend the latter as it has more active players. To install either one, refer to parts III and IV of this guide. If you want to install both, I recommend making a separate copy of the RA2 directory for each one.

In addition to an online client, I recommend installing the Yuri's Revenge cumulative map pack 5 found here. All you have to do is download the ZIP file and extract it to your RA2 directory.

Step 6. Finished!

That's all you need to play YR. To play the game, run GAMEMD.EXE. You can create a shortcut to this file on the desktop.

If you experience errors or performance issues in the game, you may need to set GAMEMD.EXE and RA2MD.EXE to Windows 98 compatibility mode (open the file context menu, Properties, Compatibility tab, Run this program in compatibility mode, select Windows 98/Windows ME).

Step 1. Installing Red Alert 2 multiplayer

To play RA2 multiplayer with XWIS, you need the no-CD patch from the XWIS client (refer to part I, step 4 for the installation) and the following additional files from it (replace the existing files) in your RA2 directory:

Step 2. Installing Yuri's Revenge multiplayer (optional)

Yuris Revenge Windows 10 Download

To play YR multiplayer with XWIS, you need the YR no-CD patch (part II, step 4 for the installation), the RA2 XWIS files (previous step) and also the LANGMD.MIX file from the YR client (replace the existing file) in the RA2 directory.

Step 3. Registering with an XWIS account (required for online play)

To play online with XWIS, you need to register with your RA2 serial key at the XWIS forums.

That's all you need to play multiplayer with XWIS. To play multiplayer, run either game and select Multiplayer in the main menu.

Part IV. CnCNet multiplayer client (requires Yuri's Revenge)

Download the CnCNet YR client here and install it to your RA2 directory.

Step 2. Finished!

That's all you need to play multiplayer with CnCNet. To play multiplayer, run CNCNETCLIENTYR.EXE or double-click the newly-created shortcut on the desktop.

CnCNet does not support 'vanilla' Red Alert 2. Instead, it uses 'Red Alert 2 Mode', a mod for Yuri's Revenge which is identical to RA2 except it uses YR unit voices and some bug fixes from YR version 1.001. You can select Red Alert 2 Mode in the server settings. Note that using the Yuri faction in Red Alert 2 Mode (which might also happen if a player or AI's faction is random) will crash the game.

If you experience errors or performance issues in the game, you may need to change your graphics renderer in the client settings. TS-DDRAW works fine in most cases.

Command & Conquer: Yuri's Revenge is an expansion pack to Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 developed by Westwood Studios. The game was released in North America on October 10, 2001[1] by EA Games. The game is centered on a shadowy ex-Soviet figure named Yuri who has established a secret army of his own and poses a threat to the free will of the world.

  • 2Gameplay

Plot[edit]

In Command and Conquer: Yuri's Revenge, the story starts off assuming that the Allies were victorious in Red Alert 2. The game begins with the White House announcing DEFCON 2 status, as Yuri, the former head of the Soviet Psychic Corps, plans to take over of the world through mind control, accomplished by activating a secretly built network of Psychic Dominators around the world. The U.S. launches an air strike on the Psychic Dominator on Alcatraz Island. Despite heavy casualties, the device loses power after its power plant is destroyed. But Yuri activates the others, and the rest of the planet quickly succumbs to Yuri's mind control.

Allies story branch[edit]

The Allied commander is sent to San Francisco to defend and activate a time machine; the Allies plan to go back in time and prevent Yuri’s Psychic Dominators from ever coming online. Once enough power plants have been secured, the player goes back in time, arriving at the time that Soviet forces are first invading San Francisco. The Soviets, caught by surprise, are defeated and the Psychic Dominator under construction on Alcatraz island is destroyed.

*Yuri territory not shown

The Allied commander is deployed to Los Angeles where Yuri is slaughtering the city's population, converting them to raw materials. The commander liberates Los Angeles with the aid of heavily armed celebrities. Next, the commander is deployed to Seattle after receiving a plea from the chairman of Massivesoft Corporation (parodies of Bill Gates and the Microsoft Corporation): Yuri has taken control of the Massivesoft campus for funds and development of genetic software. The commander engages in urban warfare to control local power stations, preventing Yuri from powering his nuclear silo while powering the Allied superweapon instead. Following these victories, Yuri captures Albert Einstein, forcing him to work on his Psychic Dominator near the Great Pyramid in Egypt. The Allies commando Tanya Adams, however, frees Einstein, who has sabotaged the Psychic Dominator. The commander gets to use it once before it blows up. The Allied forces then attack Yuri's cloning facility in Sydney, Australia. Yuri intends to kidnap world leaders and replace them with mind-controlled clones.

Wishing to bring the war against Yuri to a conclusion, the Allies and Soviets leaders meet in the Parliament Building in London to sign a peace and joint cooperation treaty. However, under Yuri’s mind control, Allied Lieutenant Eva divulges the location. The Allied Commander is forced to defend the building against Yuri's onslaught long enough for the treaty to be ratified before destroying Yuri's London base with some assistance from the Soviets.

Lieutenant Eva traces Yuri's mind-controlling transmission, exposing his home base on Antarctic Peninsula. A joint Soviet-Allied invasion is launched, eradicating the base and capturing Yuri, who is locked away in a Psychic Isolation Chamber, where he 'won't be able to mind-control a fly'. Just as General Carville congratulates the commander, the two timelines began to merge. In the new timeline, instead of Yuri, it was Carville himself who interrupted the emergency meeting at the White House, much to the shock of President Dugan. Meanwhile, Tanya invited the commander to the victory gala, just like she did in the previous timeline. However, she was by interrupted by Lt. Eva this time, who also invited the commander to attend. Tanya complained to Einstein that he didn't get the timeline straight, and asked to be sent back two hours ago. She then, with a wink, told the commander she'll catch him on the replay.

Soviet story branch[edit]

A Soviet strike team manages to capture the Allied time machine. After a misuse, which takes the Soviets to the Cretaceous era, the Soviets arrives at San Francisco during the Soviet occupation and destroys Yuri's still-incomplete Psychic Dominator. To prevent a future in which the Soviet Union loses the war to the Allies, the Soviet commander is put in charge of the assault on the Allied Chronosphere prototype in the Black Forest, Germany. This assault would have otherwise failed, as seen in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. Without the Chronosphere, the Soviet Union becomes the de facto world superpower and focuses on destroying Yuri.

Yuri has occupied London. Having mind-controlled the Allied forces there, he starts slaughtering its citizens for raw materials and building a Psychic Dominator. To stop this, the Soviet forces infiltrate London and destroy a Psychic Beacon there, freeing the local Allied military from Yuri's mind control. A joint Allied-Soviet force then razes the Psychic Dominator minutes before becoming operational.

After rescuing the Soviet Premier, whose plane was shot down over Casablanca, Morocco, the Soviet commander is deployed to an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean where Yuri has set up a large base. After an extensive battle, the base is captured. It is revealed to be a launch facility hosting a spacecraft programmed to fly to the Moon, which Yuri intends to use as a refuge when the Psychic Dominator network goes online. The Soviets use this rocket to send a specialized task force there, razing and looting Yuri's bases.

Yuri is discovered in his ancestral home of Transylvania, where he has combined his own forces with mind-controlled Allied and Soviet forces around his stronghold. Despite his strength, however, the Soviet commander defeats Yuri's forces and razes Yuri's castle. In a last ditch effort, Yuri activates the time machine which he has stolen from San Francisco. However, Soviet Lieutenant Zofia interferes, causing Yuri to travel to the early Cretaceous with depleted power reserves. Stranded in time, Yuri is eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Soviet Union imposed communism over the entire world begins to build their space program, ready to spread their glorious cause to the far reaches of space.

Gameplay[edit]

The core gameplay for Yuri's Revenge is very similar to that of its predecessor, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. The objective of the game is to gather resources while training an army to defend the player's base and attack the player's enemies.

Additions[edit]

The expansion presents two new campaigns, one for Allies and one for the Soviet Union, each consisting of seven missions. A new faction, Yuri, is introduced in Yuri's Revenge, which is the main antagonist in both campaigns and is playable in multiplayer mode, but lacks its own single-player campaign. Yuri's faction consists of mostly new units and buildings, as well as Yuri's Clones and Cloning Vats previously available to Soviets. His units generally rely on unconventional tactical elements such as their characteristic mind control.

The factions of Red Alert 2 also receive new features. Allies gain the new Guardian GI anti-tank infantry. Their new Robot Tanks are immune to mind control, and the Battle Fortress mobile bunker can crush enemy vehicles. Their commando, Tanya Adams, can now destroy vehicles. The Soviets receive the Battle Bunker defensive structure from which garrisoned infantry can fire. Their new commando unit Boris (which replaces Yuri) is capable of defeating most ground units one-on-one and calling air strikes on buildings. Their new helicopter gunships can land and deploy artillery guns. Their new Industrial Plant (which replaces Cloning Vats) reduces the cost of produced vehicles.

All unit types now have unique voices. In Red Alert 2, this was restricted to infantry and aircraft; vehicles shared the same per-faction voices.

Various support abilities were also added: Force shields, available to all factions, make buildings temporarily invulnerable at the cost of the faction losing power. Soviets have access to spy planes that can explore territory. Yuri can use his psychic radar to reveal territory, and has access to the genetic mutator and psychic dominator, the latter of which is as powerful as the weather control device of the Allies and the Soviet nuclear missiles.

The concept of 'tech buildings' present in Red Alert 2 was expanded on in Yuri's Revenge. As in Red Alert 2, capturing tech buildings gives the player access to various bonuses, but new buildings were added and some of the old ones were modified to be more beneficial. New tech buildings include power plants, machine shops for automatic healing for vehicles and ships, and secret laboratories for unlocking weaponry otherwise not available to the player's faction.

Reception[edit]

Reception
Aggregate scores
AggregatorScore
GameRankings85%[2]
Metacritic86/100[3]

Yuri's Revenge has received mostly positive reviews. GameRankings reports an average score of 85% based on 30 reviews.[2]IGN gave the game 8.6 out of 10, saying that it 'gives a really excellent game some really impressive enhancements.'[4] The lack of a single player campaign for Yuri's army was noted as a weakness. GameSpot said that 'All its new features combine to make Yuri's Revenge ideal or even downright necessary for anyone who enjoyed Red Alert 2', and awarded 8.5 out of 10.[1]

The editors of PC Gamer US named Yuri's Revenge the best expansion pack of 2001, tied with Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. They wrote that it 'reinvigorates an already excellent game, and is yet another reason to purchase Red Alert 2.'[5]
