Welcome to the forums, jasonmy10!

Running Urban Assault on Windows 10 is possible and there are many ways to do it. I highly recommend downloading these virtual disk image files and mount them with your choice of disk emulators:
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/UASSAULT.mdf
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/UASSAULT.mds

The files contain retail CD data with full contents. Should you face any problems when running the game, this article on our community wiki has comprehensive troubleshooting information on modern systems:
https://wiki.metropolisdawn.com/windows_tweaks


If you have hardware incompatibility issues, or multiplayer is not of your interest, you may also try UA:Source; UA:Source/OpenUA is an open source engine reimplementation project of Urban Assault, currently in development and so may contain some bugs and missing features.

There are many subtle differences, but the gameplay is nearly identical to the original game with a latest version release. The main topic thread can be found at here:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1589

Manual installation is possible. But I've been informed that there is a standalone UA:Source package on our FTP repository, which you can download and play out of the box. Here is a download link:
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/U ... Source.rar


If you have any further questions, or spot any bugs/problems in UA:Source, please let us know!

You should download the files from the links first. Download locations shouldn't matter as long as you can locate them. RIght-click on the links and click 'Save As' option to download the files on your computer.

If your question is about how to open downloaded *.mdf/*.mds files, you need a virtual drive emulator software such as Daemon Tools or WinCDEmu, and mount the disk image files with it.

The UA:Source standalone package does not require any installation, and you can play the game (via 'UA_Source.exe) immediately after decompressing the file with WinRAR.

Yes! You are probably thinking of Metropolis Dawn which is available at https://files.metropolisdawn.com/metrop ... ansion.zip

If that's not what you remember, then it was probably a fan contribution which you could browse what's left at https://files.metropolisdawn.com/ to see if anything rings a bell

The 'Metropolis Dawn' is an official expansion pack for Urban Assault which allows you to play unreleased Ghorkov and Taerkasten campaigns.

Playing as Mykonian in singleplayer or Black Sect is only possible through community-made mods. Please have a look at here:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=948


Installing Metropolis Dawn requires either 'Typical' or 'Full' installation of the original game with full registry entries. MD installer needs to detect these registry entries before proceeding.

If your UA registry entries are corrupted or missing, MD installer will not work. In such cases, removing and reinstalling the original game through an official installer to recover registry data is HIGHLY recommended.


Otherwise, you could copy the expansion files directly from 'Game' folder of the expansion package and paste them into your UA folder. However, doing so will not automatically create shortcuts for Ghorkov and Taerkasten campaigns. So you will have to create them manually.

Creating these shortcuts manually when MD installer is not used is explained in this post (it also contains another method using expansion test registry, but I haven't checked how it works):
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=954&start=10#p13580


Finally, if you're using the UA:Source package from above, it comes with MD data attached within. I believe there's also a readme file in the package which explains how to get the expansion data working.
