what exactly is this? i've been reading some topics and googled around but I can't figure out what ETS exactly is.

is it some kind of engine replacement for TS or something?

No. It's an extension to the EXE in a way. It allows you to do quite a bit that wasn't possible before, but it's sloppy, poorly coded, poorly documented and a waste of time.

ETS isn't exactly complete, but it's not 'that' poorly coded. VK abandoned it halfway through, so no bugfixes will ever be made for the latest version (aka dead). However, if you desperately need the functionality included in ETS for a mod project you could either take a look at it and see if it works for you (should work reasonably well), or you could wait some more time until Hyper finishes his Hyperpatch, which is another exe hack with similar functionality that is actively being worked on. Note that Hyperpatch has not been released yet.

This goes post goes mostly to Dark Templar X

ETS is not sloppy, poorly coded, and a waste of time. Infact its much better then his extensions for Redalert2 Yuris Revenge (mostly becaus the changes done in ETS is not as many and big as the ones for RA2:YR)

tho I can agree somewhat at it being poorly documented (but its also up to the users to read the MDK documentation so that is not fully VK's fault)and its also poorly maintained (ETS needs some maintenance)

(Titan's post explains this actually)

Actually, yes, yes it. Don't you have to include all the files off the TS disc in order to use ETS? I believe that was because he unpacked the exe in a retarded way or something. Dunno, I don't exactly remember.

Plus, VK is notorious for writing buggy code.

Well he made the first non-buggy RP. Before him it just IE'd all the time, reconed etc.

Actually, yes... yes it is that bad. Why do you think so few people actually use it? Right. It's as bad as the NPatch is quality and stability. VK had a nasty habit of not fixing issues.

I can say more than anyone that ETS was coded without thought of fixes or extensions to code that was written. So thus it works, but is very sloppy. VK did not have regard for many bugs that appeared, very bad attitude..

No CD cracks require files off the disc, ETS was no CD from what I remember, so just as retarded as using a retardedly retarded CD Crack. Anyway, I've tested ETS for its new features, whislt there are not many it works fine for me, not like I see the sloppy code.

Well since "recon" isnt a real word in this situation and is simply a shortening of reconnection, I dont think it matters one bit.

I also don't understand your point.

I misunderstood you. I thought you meant 'reconnaissance' because it was 'buggy'.

A C&C joke... right? Because Buggies are Nod scout units and all... right?

Ah, ztype it. The thread served it's purpose, so can some mod cut it in half and annihilate the later part?

I'm the target here, you guys are just too slow to hit it. What's "RP" stand for any way? Is it "RedAlert Patch"?
