My game is slow, has a black screen, or the gameplay is choppy.
If you are experiencing slow or choppy gameplay whilst playing on CnCNet, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem.
Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun:
Install the Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, or Tiberian Sun client.
Click Settings and select the game appropriate to change the settings for.
A menu like this will then appear:
Under "Renderer, select "Automatic"
Click "OK" and launch a skirmish game against the AI to test.
If it hasn't worked, repeat steps 4-5 by selecting a different renderer that works best for your system.
Red Alert 2 & Yuri's Revenge:
Install the CnCNet client
This will look for your existing game directory.
Once installed run CnCNetYRLauncher.exe or the shortcut supplied.
Select "Display" and under the render options, select a new renderer. Commonly, "Automatic", "CNC-DRRAW" or "TS-DDRAW" works best.
Click Save, and launch Skirmish.
Play a game with the AI. If the gameplay is fast then this renderer will likely be the best for you.
If it hasn't worked, repeat from step 5 until you find a renderer that works best with your system.
Failing the above, ensure your video drivers are up-to-date. You are running a suitable resolution the game can handle.
