These are the rarest of the Pre-Gold RedAlert2 screenshots.  

The first pictures seems to be from the web version of the Prima Strategy Guide.













There are also the only known screenshots leaked out of the Icelan public beta session.  As taking screenshots was forbidden, one wonders how these made it out.  Noticable in these pictures is the inclusion of the sidebar, the perfect quality found in PNG images, and the interesting mix of the 2 Icon styles (Textless, for use with Tiberian Sun's Cameo Text, and with Text, albeit with a different font).

The photos are of the Icelan beta test itself, with 2 monitor shots showing the different soviet sidebar and the old icons, along with some very cool posters.

Given that the real US flag vertically begins with a red stripe and that the star isn't complete, I suppose the whole flag on the "screenshot" isn't complete.
Would be cool if you made a complete version Smile

Is this just me or does it look like theres a swastika behind the flag?

Anyway, its really a nice remake, could be nice as a wallpaper #Tongue

Bump through the decade because this needs a correction bad.

Knew this years ago had not gotten to mentioning this and eventually it slipped, Ploki brought these "Icelan" screenshots up as well as this thread.

The black and white screenshots have nothing to do with Icelan, they are from the Prima Guide web version, some of them can be found in the Fast Track Guide.

All those "RareScreen" pics are also fucked up cause they were resaved to a paletted image screwing them up quite a bit.
"RareScreen03" for example is f01.jpg https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20030412105135/http://primagames.com:80/games/images/wht_pftg/76152980/f01.jpg

f01 was specifically located at https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20021031005558/http://www.primagames.com:80/strategy/guide/1413/5472/

Any idea why the screenshots were black and white in the first place?

Guide was, the Fast Track Guide is a direct copy paste from the PDF text, the images can even be matched up thus we eve get some of the thumbnails that the archive is missing

I've done a quick edit in the first post to fix the things mentioned by tomsons26lv. The site should be updated in less than 24 hours.
