Support Power Flares

Since 3.3.6, some support powers emit flares on the ground indicating its targeting position. Better understanding of its logic allows one to quickly identify what is coming and how to defend against it.

Flares comes in a total of 5 colors corresponding to the 5 factions (ASEF+civilian). Flares are used mostly by support powers related to air-delivery, but with a few exceptions.

The flare's color depends on the support power, NOT on the caster's faction (e.g. if an Allied player casts Spy Plane from a captured Radar Dish, the flare will be red instead of blue).

Cipher From Speeder's MOTY Video

Several days ago Speeder published a promotion video for the moddb MOTY voting event. One may notice the appearance of mysterious cipher strings throughout the video. Out of curiosity and in the hope of finding hints about Act 3, I tried for some time to crack the cipher. Here's what I found.



Note: 'O'(15th letter upper case) and '0'(zero numeral) are indistinguishable, and are all noted as '0' below.

About the problem of uploading avatar failed and setting Avatar

Some comrade user of our website may be failed to upload the profile picture avatar. You can change the zise of your image into 400*400 then you will be able to upload it very soooooon.

While I check about the original code of the website after several times faild to upload the image, I found that the size of default image is 400*400. After that, I changed the size of the image into 400*400, then I successfully uploaded the image very quickly.

Maybe the image size smaller then 400*400 also can be upload successfully. I hope the website maintainer can debug it. Thank you very much.

List of Red Alert 3 references in Mental Omega


The following is a comprehensive list of all Red Alert 3 references and similarities in Mental Omega.


  • Kanegawa Industries - Shares the same name as a company affiliated with the Empire of the Rising Sun faction. However, the Kanegawa Industries in Mental Omega plays a larger role in the overall story.
  • Operation: The Conqueror - The High Command Heart Building in the mission has the same appearance as the Kremlin's Heart structure found in the eighth Imperial mission Crumble Kremlin Crumble. Destroying this structure will release a Wolfhound, a reference to the same aforementioned mission, where a Twinblade helicopter will fly out of the ruins. In Mental Omega however, it is purely an easter egg.

Tech Levels

Based on version 3.3.5

  • 1 Introduction

A unit or structure's tech level is defined by TechLevel= in the INI.

Originally, the Techlevel system is meant to serve as tech tree. A unit can only be trained if the player's TechLevel is equal or greater than the unit's. While structures increases the player's TechLevel upon being built.

This was later scrapped in favor of the prequisite system, which allows for more complicated tech tree logics. In terms of tech tree implementation, the prequisite system in RA2 and MO is designed to be strictly more restrictive t…

Possible alternative approaches for documenting pre-3.0 contents

About a year ago, I learned that Speeder personally wanted pre-3.0 contents "hidden" and "buried". In the past few months, Speeder has expressed his discontent towards the fact that this wiki was documenting pre-3.0 contents by (jokingly, I thought) asking "how do I officially denounce the wiki on Wikia :/". Yesterday, we had this conversation:

Hi please nuke MO1.2/2.0 stuff from MO wiki thanks So that you can make it official after that's done? :P That depends, can you export/import it? export/import? All that content, can it be moved outside of a wikia-owned wi ki

By this point, we need to make a decision. Do we continue documenting pre-3.0 contents here, or do we make a separate wiki for that?

In my honest opinion, the way pre-3.0 cont…

Finalizing rules regarding adding contents from old versions

Now that all entries on the old Epsilon templates have a page, it is a good time to add the rules regarding adding old contents on the Content policy page.

Up to now, BotRot and I generally followed these rules, in the order of decreasing priority (the rules higher up on the list always taken precedence over the ones lower on the list):

1. Official names

2. Internal register names

3. Sprites/appearances (for structures only)

4. Functionality (within the same series only, unless it's for support powers or superweapons)

Examples:

1. Different iterations of Apocalypse Tanks are listed together regardless of their internal IDs.

2. Sea Sled is listed under Piranha Minisub/Old because they share the same internal IDs.

List of units with different official names but the same internal name on different versions

This is a list of all paired units that share the same internal name by not the official name. For the sake of consistency, even the ones that are obviously direct successors are listed, unless they are MCVs or amphibious transports.

The most counterintuitive ones are probably [PTROOP], [APOC], and [MAMM], and the latter two have been dealt with.

As noted, the succession order of Palace and Atomhart currently on the site isn't actually following either official name or internal name, but I think it is fine to determine succession order of structures via physical appearance since the sprites of structures generally don't change as much across different versions.

Clarification for how I assigned faction allegiance to stolen/hidden techs from v1.2/2.x

As some of you might have noticed, I edited the 4 unit templates for v2.x and moved certain units around in the past few days. I think it's better to clarify my thought process and hopefully reach an agreement with everyone else interested in documenting 1.2/2.0 contents.

Here is the flowchart on how I assigned the faction allegiance to hidden/stolen tech units, in order of decreasing priority: 1. If the archived official websites assigned a side to the unit, then the allegiance mentioned there is used.

  • Example: The stolen tech infantry from v1.2 can be trained from any barracks by any subfaction, but the v1.2 site assigned each of them to a side based on the structure that needs to be infiltrated.

2. If the unit has a "RequiredHouses" tag th…

Build time calculation

This should have been a single response rather than a full blog post. I'm only putting it here for the sake of future improvements or references.

Unlike the garrison ROF where it is possible to reach frame-level precision by creating a reference group which fires once per frame, there's no way of doing so here since one cannot build two structures/units at exactly the same moment. The starting and ending timestamp of the building time must be read manually from the SW countdown timer, leading to an error of no less than 0.5 seconds = 7.5 frames. Therefore the result cannot be "proven" accurate, but the algorithm is undoubtably corrrect.

The following algorithm is deducted by debugging game.exe from vanilla RA2.

Garrison ROF Calculation and Best Practice

  • 2 The problem
  • 3 Best practice
    • 3.1 Power underestimated
    • 3.2 1 + 1 < 2

First of all, I'd like to thank AlexB whose advices and insights greatly assisted this research.

Garrisoning has always been a significant mechanism in Red Alert 2. Although easy to comprehend, the precise numeric value is much harder to calculate than anticipated. Few documentation can be found on this topic, moreover these hardly ever fit to test results. This blog will go deep and deduce the precise formula.

In this blog we're talking about infantry garrisoning only. Tank Bunker's ROF is trivial.


During gameplay, one might notice that each unit in a building takes its turn to fire, regardless of their respective ROFs. For example, even though a…

About fan-made missions

Recently I've noticed about the popularity of fan-made missions for Mental Omega APYR. Though these missions are non-canon to the MO lore, they are quite interesting to play due to its own mechanics, and even some of them became the basis of certain official missions (such as Nightcrawler).

In regards on whether they should be included in the MO Wiki, I'll have to run a vote to decide it, which can be seen below. I've also edited the WarBox template and adding a new FanMade template in advance.

UPDATE: All admins and content moderators have decided against adding fan-made missions to MO APYR Wiki, so it's decided that it's a no. However, I did agree with Ollerus' suggestion to add the fan mission which official missions are based on, so I'll a…

Build Time investigation

(3.3.3)

Investigation 1: Validation of Game Speed cheat sheet from this blog post.

Iron Curtain takes 6 in-game minutes (360 in-game seconds) to recharge. Timers in game speed 2 are the closest to real time but still run a bit faster. According to the table, it will take 360 / 1.042 = 345.489 seconds in real life to recharge at Game Speed (GS) 2.

Measuring the time taken for iron curtain to recharge at GS2 using stopwatch (human error +-0.2s), T =  5 minutes 45 seconds (345 seconds) in real time, and therefore the measured result appears to be in agreement with the table.

Suggestion: Addition of Game Mechanics pages

The wiki would benefit greatly if there are pages that explain game mechanics that aren't fully explained in official sources. More important since such game mechanics aren't exactly the same in vanilla RA2/YR. Would be a fine addition for both new and veteran players.

Possible pages:

  • Veterancy
  • Detectors
  • Firepower/Speed/Armor Modifiers
  • Status Effects (e.g. Frozen, Suppressed)
  • Build time modifiers
  • Garrisoning
  • Power
  • Credits (as in money)
  • Shroud
  • Armor Types (e.g. Big Defensive Structure, Medium)
  • High Ground
  • Crates
  • Artificial Intelligence (behavior)
  • Barrels (Would be nice for an April Fools page though)

Those community members who have innate knowledge on the insides of the mod (more than just playing it), especially exact values, are recommended for this.

Of course, these images may contain spoiler contents of these missions. As a result, I post them to my blog for now, and you can see if they need to be put in the pages.

A brief conclusion about usage of colors in campaign

Note: This page is obsolete now and is replaced by Colors.

Recently I've noticed that some people are a bit confused about the color's usage, so I'll make a summary about it here to let all of us basically clear the situation.

All colors are listed below:


Major Color is the represnt color of each faction and also the 1st color in co-op missions (except Allied, it uses NeonBlue instead) while Minor Color is the 2nd one.

Ivan Bomb Logic in MO 3.3



The term "Ivan Bomb Logic" gains its name from Crazy Ivan's unique attack pattern in Red Alert 2. When a weapon uses this logic, it attaches some sort of bomb to its target which detonates and deals damage after a preset fuse time.

In vanilla Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge, this logic is hard-coded to only apply to Crazy Ivan's bomb (with a special tag IvanBomb=yes). Ares Platform further developed this mechanism, allowing several Ivan Bomb Logic weapons to co-exist with different fuse time, bomb damage and warhead.


The following units possess weapons with Ivan Bomb Logic (based on version 3.3.3):


In comparison, a Prism Tank deals ~2 Damage per Frame to buildings, and 1 to infantry (ignoring beam arcing).

My Personal Subfaction Attribute Table

This is a topic debated since long ago. Many believe that the subfactions of MO3.3 cannot fit to a perfect S-A-I model. However in my opinion, they can, and they fit quite well.

Strength: Subfactions boasting significant HP advantages over its comrades. These factions utilize slow but heavily-armored and heavily-armed forces, and usually lack a real siege tank due to game balance.

  • China
  • European Alliance
  • Epsilon Headquarters
  • Last Bastion

Agility: Subfactions with well-rounded multipurpose units. Such subfactions trade armor for mobility while maintaining high firepower. These are token A-move subfactions and more than often related to the word "imbalanced".

  • United States
  • PsiCorps

In modding, "Superweapon" not only stands for the ability provided by each faction's $3000 ($2500) and $5000 buildings, but also includes everything that is not fired from units and appears as an sidebar icon - the support powers.

In vanilla Red Alert 2. Superweapons only appear in the forms of Nuclear Missile, Invulnerability, Weather Storm, Chronoshift, American Airborne and Tech Airfield Paradrop. Yuri's Revenge introduces more weapons such as Spy Plane and F…

Informations about Infantry Only Mode

Blog based on game version 3.3.3.


  • 1 Overview
  • 2 Game Mode Changes
    • 2.1 Global settings
    • 2.2 Superweapons
    • 2.3 Buildings
    • 2.4 Armory
    • 2.5 Infantry
    • 2.6 Tech Buildings

The Infantry Only mode is a game mode specially designed for pure infantry combat. Since its introduction, its rules file has received numerous patches in order to maintain game balance. Actually, the Infantry Only mode has attained reasonable balance suitable for multiplayer games. It offers a chess-like playstyle much different from either standard Mental Omega skirmish or original Red Alert 2.

I personally find this game mode so well designed that it deserves some detailed record on the wiki. However putting everything in the Game Modes page seems out of place compared to other game modes' brief in…

Say hello to our new admins!

Now that I've finally become the wiki's bureaucrat, I just want to announce that I have promoted Bot Rot and Arya Snow into the wiki's new admins and content moderators.

With that settled, the wiki's administration is now clear. I hope that with this, our wiki will be better in the future.

Wiki overhauling and reform

Recently I was aware that the wiki's reputation being not that good, especially on MO's Discord community (thanks to Bot Rot who had told me such) who considered the wiki to be "untrustworthy". Therefore, in order to make the wiki looked better in the MO community, I've decided to initate a major overhaul and reform program over the wiki to fulfill our goal as a credible and trustworthy information source for Mental Omega APYR (since there's no word at all about the official wiki, but that disclaimer on the main page will remain until there are any update on the official wiki's status).

As some of you might know, I've announced an upcoming election for new admins for the wiki. The election, however, had to be cancelled since I've already pinp…

Campaign Act 1 Timeline

Campaign timeline of the Third World War based on canon resources of Mental Omega version 3.3.3.

Some missions cannot be merged with the rest and are therefore kept in separated lines. The vertical position of the missions doesn't necessarily stand for chronological order.


  • According to the campaign order, the President should already have been killed in Happy Birthday. However this is not mentioned in the Allied briefings until much later in Hammer to Fall.
  • In Bad Apple there're two unused lines which say: The President wants us to proceed with caution, therefore you can only have 15 of the same soldiers at a time. This hints that Bad Apple might take place before Happy Birthday. So long as the quote is removed from the game, it can't be deeme…

Patch 3.3.3 is out!

Mental Omega Patch 3.3.3 is released after quite a long delay.

As before, you can download it automatically through the Mental Omega client, or if somehow you can't, the manual patch can be downloaded here.

The patch was released just as a developer playthrough video of Nobody Home is released, which finally give a glimpse on how the Foehn Revolt came to be:

High Ground Range Bonus in Mental Omega

After having been defeated on the fortress maps for several times, I took some time to look into the range bonus mechanics of Mental Omega. The system itself is identical to Yuri's Revenge, but MO introduces many more new weapons to look into.


Some ingame weapon receives a range bonus when fired from a position higher than its target. A weapon benefits from such bonus only if:

  • Its projectile has SubjectToElevation=yes and is not an airburst projectile.
  • The weapon has Lobber=no, the payload is not fired in a hyperbolic trajectory.
  • Neither the weapon carrier nor the target is an aircraft.
  • The weapon does not have Warhead=Special, it is not a rocket/drone launcher.

If all these cases are met, the weapon will receive a range bonus when firing onto l…

Upcoming new admin election

Because I am now handling two wikis for two different CnC mods at the same time, this Mental Omega APYR Wiki and the Rise of the Reds Wiki, I am considering to elect a new admin for the wiki to handle everything in my absence.

However, as I didn't have the bureaucrat rights yet for this wiki, I have requested to be granted bureaucrat rights for the Mental Omega APYR Wiki so that I can promote a user to a new admin. Until then I have to wait.

For now, to all active editors in the Mental Omega APYR Wiki, just keep editing and remember to follow the wiki's policies and guidelines so that I might pick any of you as fitting and promising candidates for the admin position.

頑張って、みんあさん!
