How do I install Red Alert 1 via OpenRA with the Origin version?

Post by Evilnapkin »

OpenRA says it supports it, but whenever I do advanced install it starts looking for the Aftermath disc. OpenRA has improved unit selection which is why I want to use it! I want to have videos and music, otherwise I'd just go with the Quick Install and play.

EDIT1: Also is there something like OpenRA for CnC1?

It should just work, provided that the original games have been downloaded and installed via Origin.

If not, it may be a bug - perhaps a file has changed in the Origin version that breaks OpenRA's checks.
Can you please share the install.log file from either C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\OpenRA\Logs or C:\Users\<user>\My Documents\OpenRA\Logs?

Tiberian Dawn, included with OpenRA's default install, is based on C&C1.
