I don't remember the exact source, but IIRC he mentioned it in one of the videos. The idea is that guards and such will be autonomous like the prisoners and you can only give general orders, not control them directly. For example, guards will refuse to enter territory controlled by rioting prisoners...

This is extremely unlikely as the plan always was that you should ultimately not have control over any of your guards and workmen directly.

The direct control is just there temporarily until the AI can take care of itself. Except for special units like riot guards and paramedics.

The bigger issue is that opaque overlays should trap mouse-clicks. The reason you mis-clicked is that the two things (land expansion button and close button) shared the same coordinates on the screen. Normally this isn't an issue, because the dialog should catch the click and prevent it from being r...

Americans in particular are very prudent when it comes to swearing and nudity (surprised me no-one mentioned the semi-nude polaroids in the tutorial), much less so when it comes to violence and murder. For Brits swearing is mostly a non-issue in friendly informal ...

Well, you could still patch the exe (and no, reverse engineering is not illegal in every country).

Red Alert is a spin-off "prequel" to the C&C series (Renegade, Sole Survivor, Tiberian Dawn, Tiberian Sun, and the upcoming Tiberium Wars). It is not part of the main canon, Westwood made that clear a number of times. Also, Red Alert 2 was mostly a satire and thus not always considered...

Book 2 (spoilers) -- still getting garbage

After lurking around for a while, carefully combing every thread in this sub-forum, downloading redshirt (which works amazingly well with wine), compiling the otp.cc posted in one of the threads and de-redshirting the MP3, I'm now stuck. Removing "ONETIME" from the readme and de-redshirtin...
