How to install maps in RA3 (Steam Version).

#1Redfury509Posted 6/10/2009 12:58:18 AM
Hello all. I bought RA3 from Steam, and according to instructions in certain websites in how to install maps, the directory is: C:\Documents and Settings\[USER_NAME]\Application Data\Red Alert 3\Maps\. The Steam version has a different directory, however, and I tried putting the maps in different folders, but none have worked. Does anyone who play RA3 in Steam know how to install custom maps, and get them working? Any help will be appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Can anyone at least tell me where to locate the RA3 maps in the Steam version?

Well, I don't have Red Alert 3 on Steam, but I DO know where the general location of the files should be.

I think for starters, you go to C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/

Perhaps in that latest folder, the Game Cache File (GCF) for Red Alert 3 should be there.

Yeah, I just found that file there, so I just put the maps in steamapps folder, right?

Isn't there a file with your name on it, with a folder named Red Alert 3 or something in it? That may likely be the location of the maps file.
