    Origin install instructions:

    After clicking "INSTALL NOW", Porting Kit will install the Windows Origin client automatically on your Mac. After the port installation, you launch the port, login with your account, add the game serial (when not owned already) into your Origin game client account, download the game and play!

    CD install instructions:

    Make sure before clicking "INSTALL NOW" you have inserted your CD (or mounted your CD image) so Porting Kit recognizes the CD and can start the installation automatically. You will be prompted to install the game like if you were in Windows.

    Port description:

    This WSI file will create a Wrapper and install Origin into that Wrapper. The Origin Version (Red Alert 2 is part of the C&C Ultimate Collection) and the the First Decade version were tested and works. So these versions are advised to use. When you don’t own the Windows game yet, then the WSI file will supply you the link to the game page where you can purchase this Windows game. Click “Download” to download and create the Wrapper. For questions and help check the Help/FAQ tab in the Porting Kit.

    Game description:

    Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 concerns the full-scale invasion of the United States by the Soviet Union. With all-out war taking place in American cities and seven nations to play as, you’ll have to choose which side of the conflict to enter: invader or defender. At your disposal is an assortment of land, sea, and air units, each armed to the teeth, as well as a number of covert units prepared to sneak past enemy lines, steal information, and sabotage their operations. Each victory your units acquire makes them stronger and brings you closer to winning the war. 

    Notes Origin version:

    - Origin has still few bugs. First turn off in game Origin and the automatic game update (turn off these select boxes) in the origin preferences before downloading the game.

    - Second. Installation won’t end properly (it keeps saying installing). After a few minutes you can quit origin and restart and the game will launch just fine.

    Notes (CD) Version:

    - When you somehow have troubles in the game menu ->  Go to local library tab -> select the Red Alert 2 game -> right click and then properties -> then click screen settings -> then select the mac driver select box. Then go to the advanced settings in wineskin and click Test Run to see if it works. If its ok, run the game on the normal way (by clicking play in the local library tab)

    Multiplayer Fix:

    You may have noticed that when you are in the game, that when you click on “network” Red Allert 2 returns to the menu. This is a known issue also on Windows which can be fixed using a wsock32.dll file, which you can add into the game folder. To fix that dow the following:

    1. First make sure the Red Alert 2 game is already installed in origin.

    2. Download the Wsock32 file

    3. Go in local lib tab in Porting Kit —> Click “more” —> Open C: Drive

    4. Go to the game folder and move the unzipped wsock32.dll into the folder

    5. Go again to the local lib tab in Porting Kit and click “more” —> Wineskin  Tools —> Wine Config.

    6. Click “Libraries” tab and add the “winsock32” into the list and put it to “Native”

    7. Close the Wincfg Window and click on “Play” in the local Library tab, to play with network support.
