The "ra2.akx" is one of my MPS MOD pack. There are some Units from Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. I replaced unbuildable buildings(e.g. yurts, pavilions and the heroic tower) and some flags into RA2 buildings, while the COBRA was replaced by Apocalypse Tank.
There is also a plus version named "ra2+.akx", which I changed more eye candies into RA2 buildings. Besides, I released all SLP files in the zip.
It's nice to include a .akx, but you should not forget that many people don't have XP anymore, and thus cannot use MPS. So, if you wish your mod to be used, you should think about adding the .slp separately in your .zip. I know it's more annoying for people who don't know modding, MPS are indeed easier to install, but until MPS is compatible with 32 bits systems, you should forget about .akx :(
And don't forget to post a screenshot, people would like to know what you offer them before pressing the download button ;)

No guys! i still use MPS on my Windows 7 OS, and it works really nice! ;)
Simply you must change the OS compatibility in the propriety of the MPS Shortcut!

AFFA, you're most likely to be using a 32bit version of Windows 7. MPS will not work on any 64bit OS.

Well, the actual problem of MPS is the installer: since it is 16-bit, it doesn't work in 64-bit OS'es.... So, I guess that extracting the setup files from the installer might solve the problem...
