Total Annihilation: Red Edition
Red Edition contains Total Annhilation, along with the complete Core Contingency and Battle Tactics expansions. Also included are the six units released after 3.1c by Cavedog, and the updated TotalA.ini which raises the unit maximum to 500.
The soundtrack is also included in MP3 format, and can be burned to a CD-R to be used with the game.
Finally, the registry entries required to play Multiplayer can be set up by simply running "Enable Multiplayer.bat".
What makes Red Edition, well, Red Edition? This release of the game was created with the primary goal of condensing the 4 CD set down to 1 CD, without losing anything important. This was accomplished by doing the following:
1: CD check removed, program icon and file info altered, then UPX compressed.
2: All mission briefing narrations are downsampled from 22050 Khz to 11025 Khz.
5: TOTALA2.HPI, CCMAPS.CCX, and BTMAPS.CCX merged.
6: TOTALA4.HPI, CCMISS.CCX, and BTMISS.CCX merged.
7: Useless/redundant internal and external files removed.
8: smackw32.dll and online.dll UPX compressed
9: Cavedog Logo and Rolling Credits movies removed.
[TOTAL SIZE REDUCTION: 231 MB]
One other change was done that wasn't related to file size reduction:
.tdf files renamed in the CAMPS directory directory in totala1.hpi, and totala4.hpi (i.e Battle Tactics - Core Long.tdf <> [VI] Battle Tactics - Core Long.tdf). This is so the campaign listing follows a more logical order.
