Additional Information

It’s also possible to find the Rules.ini file in the Remastered installation folder.

If you’d like to do that you can do these steps:

  1. Visit C&C Communications Centre, download and install the XCC Utilities.
  2. Find the newly installed program “Mixer” in the “XCC” Startup folder and after opening it go to: /CnCRemastered/Data/CNCDATA/ RED_ALERT/CD1/REDALERT.MIX/local.mix/rules.ini
  3. Just right click and extract it, then place it at CnCRemastered as per initial example.

And one last note, Rules.ini only works with Red Alert so no Tiberian Dawn. If you poke into the original’s files with XCC you’ll find a Rules.ini but with a message explaining this.
