Really enjoying this mod, and am happy to see progress on the possibilities front for injecting some life back into this sim.

Haven't been able to find the more up-to-date RA with the Typhoon that people are talking about, only got Bill's most recent RA posting. I'm eagerly anticipating further releases.

The version your referring to is the beta version and they don't want to have a lot of people complaining about problems with it so there will only be a release of the good running setup not the beta's. Be patient and we'll have a good release, we have waited this long . They are still working on a few problems and bugs.

@XabbaRus

Because this is the thread regarding RA Mod, it would be nice to offer a link in the first post so ppl who join can DL the mod right away if interested - like me

Would be a good idea to do the same with the Alfa Tau Mod thread.

Greetings!

I love RA. I guess then everyone must wait for the official release to be officially hosted. Be patient.

Or you could try asking around quite a number people already got their hands on the beta version.

The thing is now my firewall really hate DW my DW would hang if my firewall is up running. Putting DW as trusted application doesn't help either.
Man I'd love to play online with RA

A bit OT, but which firewall do you use? Try disabling your regular firewall, and turning on Windows XP / Vista built-in firewall for the duration of DW online session, just designate DW.exe as an exception in a firewall's exceptions list. You will need Windows XP SP 2, SP 3, or Vista for Windows firewall.

Windows firewall is pretty basic, but it should be just fine for the online session duration, it won't filter any outgoing traffic, but it will filter incoming traffic.

Apart from waiting for the offical release of RA. Perhaps some one could post the correct prodcure for installing it? I'm not the best in this area, and perhaps I may have done something wrong with my one. Any help would be great.

If you read the thread back in the DW forum I said I'd but a link in the first post if someone sent me the link.

No one has as yet.

I will PM you a link to edit into your post by tomorrow night Xabba. It'll be a free mediafire account though, so I'm not sure how well it will hold up.

Hmm will I be putting my PC at risk. I mean windows firewall is pretty basic imo. I'm using COMODO internet security package. really happy with it. Though it may cause me some nuisances like when installing or executing new application I would recommend it to anyone.

Plus sometimes I run snort IDS in the background too. Yea I'm neurotic...lol.

Edit: Yea I finally get DW working with my firewall up. A change of defense+ setting.
Thanks Bobby.

Thanks guys for the link's. Now can you tell me the correct way to install them, I want to make sure I do it right the first time, do you install them using JSGME. Normally when given choices like this I normally do the wrong thing , so I'm going to hold off installing until I hear back. Again Thank you for the links, and taking the time to put up the thread.

It is not intended for use with JSGME, though I guess there is a way to make it work...anyway, extract the zipped RA OPFOR files into your DW root folder, and you will see a README with instructions on how to install RA, it really is simple, just follow the instructions.

Think I got it up and running. Tigerfish still disappear after I fire them?, but that I can live with, fantastic Mod, well worth installing and if forced to chose between Alfa and RA, RA wins, much more depth and scope in designing missions, great models on new subs and ships
