Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Command & Conquer: Red Alert v.09c (pre-release version)

EXEs dated 11 October 1996.
Game archives dated 16 January 1996.

http://files.siberian-studio.ru/sg/_bet ... t_beta.png

===========================================================

Good day, comrades.

This version was found on bootleg CD copied from an unknown source in 1996.
Maybe this version was used for some game shows and expos.
How it leaked from Westwood Studios and come to Russian bootleggers is unknown.
I just bought it from the previous owner, whom I will no longer meet.

===========================================================

What I found:
* Game have a few bugs.
* Bugged logic of entering into naval transport.
* Pre-release version of RAEd (official map editor).
* Wrong readme file;
* Pre-release design of some mission maps.
* Imbalance in missions, like: enemy has aircrafts, but player does not have any anti-air units and structures.
* Flag movies with pre-release versions of faction logos. United Nations logo for Allies.
* Soviet mission 1 intro movie with subtitles aligned to the left and slightly different text on it.
* Helicopters movie, which was used in the final version of the game intro.
* Pre-release version of the game intro (prolog) movie.
* Shipyard movie excluded from final version.
* No ore mines.
* No many movies.
* No many musical scores.
* Working sprites of the Hind helicopter: Orca sprites from C&C1 and text "Hind" on it.
* Credits button (WS logo) does not work in main menu.
* Funny pre-release version of credits.
* Few 3D rendered pictures, excluded from final version.
* Pre-release version of sound of Tanya's pistol shot.
* Pre-release version of sound of AA gun's shot.
* Few sprites from C&C: Tiberian Dawn.
* Ranger named Jeep.
* Chronoshift named Time Warp.
* Interior maps bug: infantry can walk through walls and no exit outside.

===========================================================

Known games crashes:
* Start Skirmish game.
* A mouse on MCV, maybe when the game tries to show a tooltip of MCV, so select it quickly or just use a group selection (frame) to select it.
* Load a saved game with a long play session.
* Clicking MB or pressing any key on the Result screen to speed up counting animation. Just don't touch anything until the game asks you.
* Just at start of any mission.

===========================================================

Gameplay and walkthrough no commentary, 1st play.

Download link for public is coming soon this week. Stay tuned.

RA2 beta was leaked in summer 2000, but I have not found anyone who still has it.

Nice. I always like to watch how the art changed during the development of the games and the deleted things.
