Welcome to Arda's Homepage

As you can see, there's not much going on here. That's because I like to spend more time coding than presenting. Maybe this page will get some more colors and a logo sometime. ;)

What's Arda

Arda is an expansion for Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It is a DLL that uses Syringe to patch the game when it is running. The game's files remain unchanged. Arda fixes known bugs and adds several new features.


Here are some of the main features. For a full list of changes, please consult the manual.


You will need an English Command & Conquer: Red Alert edition with the 3.03 beta patch installed. It does not matter whether it is the original CD edition, a The First Decade installation or the freely downloadable ISO edition.


The latest version is Arda 0.1 (revision 170) for testing, released August 5th 2012. Just install into the Red Alert folder and use Launcher.exe to start.

Arda 0.1 mini (3.3 MB) – no music, no videos
Arda 0.1 standard (29.7 MB) – language support and music
Arda 0.1 full (84.7 MB) – standard with movie support


The manual is included in the installation package. For reference, you can find the manual for the latest version here.
