Then you'd click one of those and a...

Rather than removing bad crates, how about different colour crates. For example Blue = no/low risk or moderate reward (unit speed increase, squad crate, armour increase etc) Green = Reveal map, 2k credits, shroud map, explosion etc. Just an idea. or A lobby option to disable 'Baddy crates' That cou...

Music expansion I've prepared music.yaml to accept tracks from both Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert and all of their expansions.
