Since nobody seems to know how Ares works unless used in conjunction with LaunchBase, I'm going to explain how to use it since it's incredibly simple and requires absolutely no work on your part.

Simply download Ares, install this then extract the contents to your Red Alert 2 game directory. The documentation is included in the package and tells you exactly what is new and usable. Then just double click RunAres.bat to activate Ares.

Now. Quit asking how Ares works!

Of course, if you use Comodo Firewall, the above doesn't enough on it's own, http://ppmsite.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30625 is needed too.

Comodo Defense+ is the issue.
Specifically, the Shell-code injection feature- you have to add all the Ares related files to it, or it has problems running at all.

Hey now, watch who your talking about there buddy Laughing
But to be serious, I've been running ares standalone since the beginning. I actually dont even like or use Launchbase. My mods contained into it's own folder so I dont have to worry about lauchbases add/remove files from the directory function since it's not even in the RA2 directory. I dont even use a disc with mod either. Just click my desktop icon and away goes my mod Smile

I thought the purpose of LB was a universal platform for people to deploy mods like XCC was but useful information I guess.

I agree with cranium, and I share the same stance/story. I have tried using launchbase, and I do know how to use launchbase, but for modding I think using ares stand alone is easier and less complicated "for me anyways".

However when I do release my mod it will most likely be with launchbase.

I've had people ask me time and time again how to do this so I made a guide stating the totally fucking obvious. Sadly, the link has been given out a few times already.

I still support LB for releases though. This shit is for testing.
