Open-Source reimplementation of Westwood’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert game engine, updated to use the hardware acceleration of modern video cards using OpenGL and OpenAL for sound playback. It runs natively on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The game was designed with modifiability in mind, but is not identical to the original. Campaigns and mods made for the legacy game won't work out of the box.

I haven't been able to get this to run through Desura yet... Initially, I just got a program error (asking me to send an error report - standard Windows style). Now, I saw the update and downloaded it, but during installation, it told me that there was a problem during "MFC installation" and that it had now stopped.

On my Linux machine it also doesn't run - I suppose I need some form of Mono to make that happen, hey?

Any ideas?

You can report problems with the Desura client at Github.com Sounds like you may be better of with the Linux packages from Openra.net for now.
