This will be a weird question... It might have been answered/asked but I will ask.

Is there any way to tell what waypoints are actually used?

This seems like a weird question I know... However I was looking at ra2's allied mission 1 and am trying to figure out what waypoints I can repurpose.

I could be wrong but it seems like ra2 will only be able to use waypoints 0-99. Allied mission 1 uses waypoints 0-99... So I can not add any...

I have been looking at all the waypoints and quite a few of them seem to not be used... I could be wrong...

How I have looked, this could be wrong, so please correct me. I have opened the map in a text editor and done a search for a waypoint number (very time consuming), and then correlated that with a trigger/script/ext editor in fa2... Now I have found found quite a few number that do not seem to have anything connected to them... am I missing something?

How do I free up numbers?

No easy way. You have to search for the waypoint number as well as its alphabet representation like A, B, C etc. in Actions, Events, Scripts, TeamTypes, Basic -> HomeCell/AltHomeCell etc. Check ModEnc.

In TS and RA2, 0-100 waypoints can be used. YR allows for 0-701 waypoints.

E1 is right 0-100 for RA2.

There are a whole lot of missions with almost redundant waypoints used, or the addition of something so trivial it can be removed... start with the ambient sounds.

Don't. It takes away the ambiance and atmosphere. RA2 is dumbed down in that department as-is when compared to TS and FS.

Tho he kinda does have a point: you can re-set up the ambience later, after you have the rest of map, since it doesn't matter where the sound is coming from, not really...

Well that's a real bummer I was hoping there was a simpler way...

At least I was able to free up about 9 waypoints from the manual digging... That should be enough.
