RA1 was my favorite C&C game and still is today.
RA1 was possibly the best and most popular C&C of all time.
RA1 had the best music soundtrack of the C&C series thanks to Frank Klepacki.
RA1 had Kane and Einstein before everything changed.
RA1 had a hi-res resolution available but no real unofficial patch yet after several years.
RA1 had remakes on C&C2 and RA2 but lacked SP campaigns.
RA1 had been an official freeware game by EALA when RA3 was released.
After a year of their epic mod release "The Forgotten" for C&C3, CNCLabs has once again released another epic mod for Red Alert 3, the remake of what was once Westwood's best C&C game, C&C Red Alert. Named as "The Red Alert", this Red Alert 3 mod featured all the units, structures and textures from RA1 and even from the RA1 expansions all converted to 3D style. The epic music from RA1 is also back as well. However...... the cartoonish graphics in RA3 with V-sync feature on high (which shows the yellow highlighting on all objects on the field when selected) is still unacceptable.

Version 1.1 Patch: http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-red-al...-red-alert-v11 (requires TRA 1.0)
Note that RA3 Patch 1.12 is required to run this mod.
I say now that "The Red Alert" is the C&C game to pwn RA3 about 10 times better. This just happens to be the second C&C game to be fully remade and done (the first one was Renegade-X).
