Proper textless cameos restored by using pieces of the cameos from 5 foreign languages.
RA2 cameos won't be released as psd's tho because they will be too big to upload
Note, i mostly only removed the gloss and text, touch-ups only made if i was sure that it looks correct,i wanted to keep them as authentic as possible

YR cameos


Notes on YR cameos
Battle Fortress. WW accidentally moved the cameo one pixel row above, instead of fixing it they copy pasted the bottom pixel row from another cameo.
M.I.G cameo only exists in the English,Chinese and Korean version of YR but all say M.I.G. and the bottom section is corrupt so i had to paint the clouds in myself
Boris. I restored it from the official concept that i tweaked to look exactly like the cameo, its higher quality than the one in YR.
Brute. It's shadow its slightly corrupt
Citadel walls. Refer to the official WW render i added in the psd if you want to restore the remaps
Force shield. In the eng version of the cameo the shield shell was moved compared to the rest languages
G.G.I. The attached official render is from YR beta, the only difference is that the ground had grass
Gattling Cannon.Someone was probably drunk when making that, also the bottom was copy pasted
Genetic Mutator. Same derp as with the Battle Fortress only 2 pixel rows this time.
Industrial Plant. The bottom is corrupt.
Initiate.Restored from the official concept and textless image, it looks a bit different and its higher quality, if you need the original just turn off the layer of the concept image
Psychic reveal. Restored from the original image used for that cameo, if needed can make the original textless cameo as well.
Psychic tower.Someone was drunk again, the cameo has only the tower that's placed on the ground  Laughing
Dominator. The shadowed side is corrupt
Slave Miner. The bottom ground is seriously corrupt, some text and gloss partially left in, i highlighted the areas where there is still text in blue.
Spy plane. The cameo was moved in every single language, restored only the English version, original render included
Tank bunker. There is still some gloss left in the bottom left corner, that in that corner is another tank bunker
Virus. Restored from the official image and concept
Yuri Transport.If you want to restore the water in the section where its green remember that the pixel mess at the bottom that's the reflection.

Well that's about it, refer to the attached original renders if you want to fix it up or enhance it.

RA2 cameos


Notes on RA2 cameos
Both attack dog cameo bottoms are corrupted
The Black Eagle cameo is the official non-paletted image  Razz
The lightning storm cameo bottom was copy pasted two times
IFV bottom was copy pasted once
Sea Scorpion - WW used a JPG for that cameo there are a lot of artifacts,never found a higher quality version Sad
Iron Curtain building cameo, bottom duplicated
Crazy Ivan - official non-paletted image  Very Happy
The Allied transport - was owned by the Soviets in the beta
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ygeXcTSC-P4/UfKyWIcrDBI/AAAAAAAAB58/28D4ZD8IO4Y/s251/command__conque-489.jpg
and vice versa for with the Soviet Transport
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-iHuwwMCUaHs/UfKxrMmiOtI/AAAAAAAABtw/Snw8BwkS91Q/s251/command__conque-350.jpg
there are red remap pieces around the allied team color and blue sections in the soviet transport cameo.
PSI commando - in veteran cameo the commandos shoulder was duplicated but just the shoulder.
PSI Trooper - official non-pelleted image
Patriot Missiles - bottom slightly corrupt
Tesla Trooper - The left side was duplicated to make room for the chevron
Soviet MCV - The bottom is from the late beta cameo, thats a part of a wheel Razz
Attack Sub - 24bit  Razz
Terrorist - left side duplicated
Tesla Coil - partially restored from a official non-pelleted image
Yuri - in the veteran cameo left side duplicated

Extras


Carrier - I accidentally added the fixed cameo to the RA2 pack but i meant to include it in the extra pack, this is the original unfixed version, WW duplicated the bottom to make room for the text
The Chronosphere - cameo was accidentally moved one row to the top by WW, to hide that they duplicated the bottom pixel row, here is the fixed cameo
Destroyer - Cleaned up the green and made the water less pixely
Conscript - HQ cameo and its late beta counterpart
Flak Cannon - Fixed the sky that was actualy from a late beta cameo
Flak Trooper - HQ version, not included in the RA2 pack because its a bit different
IFV - Fixed the duplicated bottom
Initiate - Original cameo before i enhanced it with WW's 24bit cameo and original concept
Rocketeer - Veteran cameo I accidentally pasted the tank destroyer ontop of that one in the RA2 pack  Embarassed
Soviet Power Plant - Really late beta cameo,found in the chinese version of RA2, its a lot higher quality than the final
PSI Trooper - Original cameo
Squid - The original cameo before WW messed it up with the green water
Yuri Prime - 24bit  Razz , not included in the RA2 pack because its not the exact same photo
Yuri - Tweaked cameo using Yuri cameo from YR

Nice job. Tho at some places, I'd be more happy if the cameos would be better than WW *cough* Soviet MCV *cough* but still, great job!

Blank cameos are nice. I think RA2 should have used the system that TS uses for cameos. It's easier to change the name of a unit.

well, i dont think they intended people to use their stuff. Not sure if they ever intended people to be able to make their own mods, but wouldn't it be nicer to make your own stuff (tanks, buildings, terrain, ships, jets, icons) instead of being lazy and taking someone else stuff and changing the name?

Everyone these days want a short cut the goal line. No one wants to do their own work to get there.

I always thought the reason the RA2 Cameos had text on it was because it was a successor to RA which used the Portrait Style Cameos. Granted TD also had Portrait Style but when they moved onto TS they had changed the style to the more common Profile Style that they also used in Tib Wars,RA3 & Twilight.

It also allows you to write whatever you want on the cameo while the actual unit name is different.

Oh neat. I'll be using some of these improved ones. I really like that Tesla Reactor cameo from the extra set. That's really nice.
