Hey all! I downloaded and installed OpenRA a few months ago and I love the game and the updates made to it. But I'm a bit stuck. On the website they mention that the briefing videos can only be downloaded from original disks. I have the freeware versions of both Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn installed, but when I ask the game to detect the installations it doesn't see them. Is there a way to manually move the briefing videos or is OpenRA not set up to take the videos from the freeware versions?

Afaik the game only looks for the mounted ISOs or the usual game installation locations used by e.g. Origin. Your best bet might be following the unofficial installation guide
until we add a file browser to the content installation menu.

Mounting the ISOs should be sufficient, although if you are using Linux you may need to manually mount them one at a time at /media/openra as support for automatically detecting mounted ISO is a bit spotty there.

Maybe pchote don't notice your machine, but if you are on windows, you can copy briefing videos manually to OpenRA ra content folder
the content folder usually is C:\Users\<YourUserName>\Documents\OpenRA\Content\ra\v2
