Description

Verses defines a Warhead-specific damage multiplier for each Armor type. The list of percentages should be ordered to correspond with the Armor types, which vary between games.

RA/TS Example

[Weapon]
Damage=100
Warhead=Foo

[Foo] ; n , w , l , h , c
Verses=10%,50%,30%,70%,90%

[Target1]
Armor=light

[Target2]
Armor=concrete

One shot of Weapon will deal:

  • 100 * 30% = 30 points of damage to Target1.
  • 100 * 90% = 90 points of damage to Target2.

RA2/YR Example

[Weapon]
Damage=100
Warhead=Foo

[Foo] ; n , f , p , l , m , h , w , s , c , 1 , 2
Verses=10%,15%,20%,30%,35%,40%,50%,55%,60%,70%,90%

[Target1]
Armor=light

[Target2]
Armor=concrete

[Target3]
Armor=special_2

One shot of Weapon will deal:

  • 100 * 30% = 30 points of damage to Target1.
  • 100 * 60% = 60 points of damage to Target2.
  • 100 * 90% = 90 points of damage to Target3.


Special Values

There are special-case Verses values that are only available in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. These values are 0% and 1%.

Note: The rules(md).ini comments regarding these values are incorrect. Use this guide to determine the correct effects.

0% - Forbidden Armor Type

A Verses value of 0% indicates that the corresponding Armor type is a forbidden target for this Warhead. A unit using a weapon with the attached Warhead will not accept an attack command against another unit with that Armor type. Nor will it accept a force fire command, retaliate, or passive acquire on a target with that Armor type.

1% - Cannot Passive Acquire

A Verses value of 1% indicates that a unit using a weapon with the attached Warhead will not passive acquire a target with the corresponding Armor type. However, the unit will still accept an attack command, a force fire command, and retaliate against it. Since 1% renders a great reduction in damage, it is typically only used for special-case weapons that aren't meant to deal damage, such as the Spy's disguise weapon.

What about 2%
2% doesn't seem to have any effect on targeting.

Negative percents are also allowed

If a verses contains a negative value such as -100% the effects of damage are reversed thus restoring lost Strength=.

One shot of Weapon will deal:

  • 100 * -30% = will restore 30 points of Strength= to Target.
