0 Mental Omega Act III now in development!

Posted by Speeder on December 7, 2023 in Mental Omega APYR News

A decade has passed since the beginning of the Mental Omega storyline with the release of Act One, featuring 12 missions for Allies, Soviets, and Yuri's Epsilon each, on November 29, 2013. Over the years, we've rolled out numerous patches that expanded the narrative into Act Two and additional Special Operations, featuring missions that delved into new stories of the factions originating in Red Alert 2, but also introduced our original fully playable side - the Foehn Revolt - in version 3.3.0 in 2016.
 
The climax of the story of Allies, Soviets, and Yuri in version 3.3.6 released on October 30, 2021, marked the culmination of years of dedication from many talented individuals—ardent fans of Red Alert 2 and the works by Westwood Studios. As the authors of this campaign, we were more than happy to see the wide participation of players in it throughout the years. The combined Act One and Act Two storyline resulted in a massive 133-mission-long campaign, available for everyone to play for free.

Now, a new war looms on the horizon. The state of the world is dangerously unknown, and thus it falls upon the technologically advanced Foehn Revolt to navigate the uncertainties of the outside. Their mortal enemy, Yuri, has achieved the seemingly impossible, forcing the Revolt to employ warfare strategies and futuristic weapons developed in the isolated time-space in Alaska. The horrors that await them will be for you to discover in Act Three of the Mental Omega storyline - "New Horizon" - now in development.
 

actthreecardpv.png

 
After a much needed development break, the Mentalmeisters are now crafting the next chapter of the Mental Omega saga. The upcoming campaign - a sequel to "Red Dawn" and "Epsilon Era" - is an ambitious collaborative effort involving veteran mission designers from the community with extensive experience in Red Alert 2 map creation. This time, just like we did with Act One, we intend to release all missions of Act Three simultaneously when they are ready. The new story of the Foehn Revolt will arrive packed with gameplay changes, new additions and improvements, which we will be unveiling to you over time.
 

foehnpromo2023.png

 
The most crucial addition, which should come as no surprise to those who follow the developments in our modding community, is the inclusion of Phobos — the Ares-compatible extension for the Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge engine created by Starkku, Kerbiter, Trsdy, Morton, Belonit, among others. This inclusion enables us to introduce a plethora of new advanced functionalities into the game, further information on which will be revealed in the upcoming dev logs. If you'd like to learn more about this revolutionary modding tool right now, head over to their GitHub.

We are also very happy to announce the formation of the Mental Omega Animated Cutscenes Project team, lead by Baozi and consisting of Brick, Alex, hhhh, Lobsan3 and Noah. This team will solely focus on crafting animated CGI cutscenes for the Mental Omega story, an example of which we present to you today.
 

 
Both the Mentalmeisters and the MOACP teams are now actively seeking new members. We, as the Mentalmeisters, are explicitly looking for INFANTRY ARTISTS and MISSION SCRIPTERS, while the MOACP team is recruiting those skilled with CGI to assist with the creation of new models and animating the cutscenes: STORYBOARD, 2D, 3D and RENDER ARTISTS. We are both also looking for MUSICIANS who'd like to contribute additional music for the projects.
 
## Contact Speeder / MMs: mental.omega.apyr@gmail.com
## Contact Baozi / MOACP: hanpibaozi@outlook.com
 
Make sure to follow mentalomega.com and our social channels for updates on the "New Horizon", soon™.
You can also join our Discord server, which has recently reached a milestone of 10000 members.
 
Mental Omega is back. Stay tuned for much MOre.

Posted by predator_bg on January 27, 2021 in Contra News (eng)

Welcome to another update! A small hotfix patch has just been released!

 

NOTE: This hotfix includes cosmetic and solo play changes only, so it is not required to keep playing online! You will not get a mismatch if some players have the hotfix, but others don't.

 

Contra Launcher will ask you to download and apply the hotfix, so you don't have to bother doing it manually.

C&C: Reloaded 1.7.1 released with latest CnCNet support and tons of changes.
 

The most noticeable changes of this release are:

- New Ion Cannon for multiplayer games. The classic Ion Cannon is still used in the Tiberian Sun campaigns:

CnC_Reloaded_Super_Ion_Cannon-mi.gif

 

- Added the new alternative tech tree for the GDI, based on the Tiberium Wars vehicles with a Tiberian Sun skin:

CnC_Reloaded_TW_Dream_Team.gif

- Added a remake of the first mission from the RA1 campaign "It Came From Red Alert" with RA2 graphics. In the future it will change so now consider it as a (beta) challenge. For now, depending the difficulty you'll face that mission with any of these friends:

Ants_family.png

MapTool_with_90_profiles_for_CnC.png

0 Contra 009 work in progress - News Update 16

Posted by predator_bg on May 3, 2020 in Contra News (eng)

Hi everyone!

Work on Patch 3 is almost on daily basis. From models, maps and audio to AI improvement, game balance and bug fixes.
You already know that our Patch version is more like a new Contra version, rather than patching missed things and errors.

Because of that, please have some more patience. Still, we need to show some work in progress.
Few new models and visual improvements.

PO_render.jpg

- New addition to China Infantry general is "Propaganda Officer". Lately, we are focusing on Infantry general's play style. We want to improve infantry hordes and encourage player to use infantry units, rather than relying only on Troop Crawlers. Troop Crawlers are still there, and it is good to have them as support and transport units, but soldiers are what you need if you play Infantry General. Propaganda Officer is available at rank 1 and as his name tells, he grants propaganda effect to your units.
Voices are amazingly done by our Voice Actor Matthew Vanston.



Let's continue with models!

Acid_pump.jpg

- GLA Chemical general "Acid Pump" is now a separate structure. So, now you can build both Toxin and Acid Pump for your defenses. This means that they finally have an automatic fire mode.

ECM_render.jpg

- China Tank General's early gameplay was sometimes unfair, because of the ECM tank unit. When you are Airforce general, or Cybernetic, or most of your arsenal is rocket-based, and Tank General has 2-3 ECM tanks in horde, it was extremely hard to do some damage and to get rid of them. That's why we removed ECM tank from early game and added "ECM tower", which can be built almost as easy as Propaganda tower. They have a bigger deflection radius than the ECM tank had last time. You can protect your base from fast attacks or advance with them slowly.

Katyusha_render.jpg

- Most of the units got redesigned parts, which improve their visuals. Showing all of them would be too much for this update, but here is the one that is easily recognized. "Katyusha" got remodeled back part, as well as turret, which can now pitch up and down. We've done our best to rebalance this unit as well.

- Another thing which we are working on, are small details for structures. Meaning, each general's structures which are shared with other generals, got unique objects as details. Most of those objects can be seen on Command Centers in previous versions. So far, GLA structures are made. Assault has scrap parts, rockets and barrels. Chemical has pipes, headers and chemical barrels. Demolition has explosive barrels and C4 charges. Stealth has surveillance equipment installed.

ASLT_structures.jpg

CHEMO_structures.jpg

DEMO_structures.jpg

SLTH_structures.jpg

- And another big improvement is lately done by EmperorAlexander.
He is our new member and he works on particle effects. By now, he has done tons of new effects, but here is just a sneak peak into some of them.


FX11.jpg

FX22.jpg


**** At the very end, we need to say big thanks to people who supported us through donations. We will publish their nicknames in a new section in the mod credits with the next release. If you want, you can also support us and help with our development. ****

0 Patch 2.2.12 released!

Posted by OmegaBolt on June 8, 2019 in Tech Center News

Four months of development, but hopefully worth the wait! Feel like I've said this a lot, but 2.2.12 is a big patch. It's main change is the inclusion of a brand new 5-mission campaign for the United States, marking the beginning of Red-Resurrection timeline. Furthermore the campaign features great voice acting and fully animated cutscenes between missions to tell the story in detail! Check out the trailer below.

 

 

The campaign can be found in the singleplayer menu of course, and although it can be played in any order I recommend going through them as listed for the story to make sense! Due to the size of the cutscenes I have put them up as a separate download, but please grab them before playing as they should massively improve the experience (and a lot of work went into them!).

That's not all however. Soviet Russia has received a replacement for the Tupolev, a jet which greatly added to their already potent frontline force. Instead, they receive a support power on T3 with the Air Strategy Control named the Judas Corps.
 

dZsGjRDm.jpg

 

Judas Corps paradrops in 2 Spetsnaz infantry, equipped with a long range rifle and 'Blackout' EMP charges for use on structures. That is their main use, to sabotage enemy producted by disabling factories. This gives Russia another dimension and unique ability to slow down their enemy with subterfuge.

On top of that there are a bunch of new maps! Here are a few examples:
 

GCsSgPSm.jpg

 

Of course there are many balance changes too, bug fixes and so on! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features

  • Added a brand new 5-mission United States campaign, including full voice acting! The US has had enough of Libya's belligerence and launched an invasion with the goal of toppling it's president Hamza al-Sanussi - and thus beginning the Red-Resurrection story.
  • ADDITION: the Judas Corps support power for Soviet Russia. Available at T3 from the Air Strategy Control, it paradrops 2 Spetsnaz special forces equipped with a long range anti-infantry rifle and anti-structure EMP bombs. Capable of disabling enemy structures for 45 seconds at a time. Replaces the Tupolev.
  • 11 all new maps for skirmish and multiplayer.
  • Improvements to several Red Alert 2 campaign missions, making them harder on higher difficulties.
  • Hot new lava tilesets featured on many new and old maps.
  • Reworked existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Many balance adjustments and bug fixes.

You can view the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.

4 Contra 009 work in progress - News Update 15

Posted by predator_bg on September 16, 2018 in Contra News (eng)

Hi guys!! (and girls, I hope there is at least one girl playing Contra mod)

Autumn did not officially start yet, but sometimes we like to be super crazy and break the rules.
So even before Autumn we are bringing you Autumn update (how crazy is that)!?

As we are heading towards Contra 009 FINAL release, we are polishing and improving existing units, AI behavior and gameplay.

In this update we will show you some of the updated units. Of course, besides just units renders, there are a lot of "touches" which you will notice when actually playing.
Once again, we are doing this all for you, so please be a bit more patient.

- First one is updated Microwave Tank for Laser general. Finally that old tuna fish can is replaced with better model. Yes, he is using Avenger bottom, and no, not every tank has to be super unique.

11.1.jpg

- "Gate guardians" are cool guardian drones made only for Seraph mech. Due to game balance Seraph`s shield is removed. New drones are made by default, you don't have to spend money for them. They protect Seraph in pair. Repairing him while standing above him, destroying missiles with lasers, and shooting on both infantry and vehicles. Drones cannot be killed (nor targeted) until Seraph dies.

22.jpg

- Cybernetic general Factory has been remade because of few reasons. First one is, old model had really bad UVW map where some parts of texture were stretched. When exported, few animation frames were cut (no one actually noticed and I never told anyone). And texture style didn't fit other USA structures. So now, you can see brand new factory which fits Ironhand style. Factory doesn't have dining room, sleeping room and other rooms like barracks, instead, there is a butchery needed for assembly of human and robot parts. Where are human parts from? Well, don't ask me. Ask general Ironhand who claims there are less homeless on the streets since he runs his program.

66.jpg

- Another USA structure makeover is given to Airforce generals Superweapon. Again, bad UVW map and texture design, but also lack of night version led to improvement. Few more details added, looks neat in game.

55.jpg

- China also got few things. Zhu Rong or Thermobaric mortar, got improved cannon and few details attached. Once you play general Bao challenge, you will know you are in Hell.

33.jpg

- Contra doesn't have many public models in game. In fact, there is one only. It is famous Dragon Tank. I couldn't find a better concept for this true masterpiece, in order to make this tank unique for Contra. At the end, it would be just a slight variant of this unit. So, Dragon tank got his texture and UVW map improved to fit all other China tanks in Contra mod.

44.jpg

- And at last, Tank general Overlord Headquarters got improved structure. We will all agree that old one was lacking details.

77.jpg

And, at the end, as usual...

Please don't ask for release date as we don't know exactly. Yes, we are doing our best to release 009 FINAL this year. Both you and we are waiting for this very long. But keep in mind that we are trying not to release a version filled with bugs, or with broken gameplay where one general rules over others. We are aware that we won't be able to achieve a perfect balance, but we assure you that it will be much better than before. That's hard when you have so many unique units.

Anyway, thank you for patience, and thank you for support. It means a lot!
