Red Alert 2 + Yuri Revenge for Mac OSX

Game Details:

Welcome to the “C&C Red Alert 2” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port this game with a few simple steps so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using Porting Kit (free), Crossover or Parallels Desktop (Virtual Machine with Windows 11). Crossover and Parallels desktop are commercial software and have a 14 day trail to see if this application fits your needs. If the game works not as attended or in your liking on Porting Kit, I really advise to use one of the 2 commercial alternatives. Red Alert 2 is part of the C&C Ultimate Collection, which is way cheap on Kinguin!

The Origin version is the easiest and most recommended (auto install just a few click of work), while the CD version is more complicated and more info about the Yuri Revenge install can be found below.

Origin Client install instructions:
– Download Porting Kit.
– Move the app to your apps folder and open it
– Go to you libraries tab and search for Red alert 2 and install Origin (source).
– When the install of the origin client starts it gives a white window for about 20 seconds before it starts.
– After the login window appears (also takes about 10 seconds to appear) close it so install can finish properly
– When after install complete you log into Origin (takes 10 seconds to see the login window), in the settings turn off “in-game origin”
(app settings –> more –> in-game origin) before launching a game.

Red Alert 2 First Decade DVD (thanks to Ray):
– Download Porting Kit.
– Get the First Decade DVD somewhere and Mount DVD/DVD image
– Open Portingkit –> Libraries –> Server –> Download C&C Red Alert 2
– Then the Portingkit will ask to select a setup file –> navigate to the First Decade dvd and select the setup.exe

Game description:
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 is a 2.5D real-time strategy computer game by Westwood Studios, which was released for Microsoft Windows on October 23, 2000 [1] as the follow-up to Command & Conquer: Red Alert. Set in the early 1970s,[2] Red Alert 2 supposedly picks up at the conclusion of the Allied campaign of the first game, but this has been subject to debate. Its expansion is Command & Conquer: Yuri’s Revenge.Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 contains 2 playable factions, Soviets and Allies which both previously appeared in Command & Conquer: Red Alert. The single player campaign is structured in an alternate-ending mode as opposed to a progressive story mode.
