  1. Looks good. It looks like a maze-like single player mission that's been turned into a multiplayer map . And I get why there's a tech power plant (to harness the power of the Reichenbach Falls, in real life anyway), but I'm not sure if it's worth fighting for on this map though. And it kinda sucks that the waterfalls don't gush out in RA2/YR. I like how you can't just get the bottom section straight off the bat (except for the airport) due to the sniper and howitzers, you'll have to fight both the other player as well as AI for it. This minimizes 'dog luck' at the start of the match, which can sometimes be a game decider. It's also good that it allows for both land and naval battles, and the limited amount of resources forces the players to choose their units wisely. Allies have a pretty noticeable advantage at the start though; they can quite easily and quickly capture the tech airport by transporting an engineer with the nighthawk with nothing to stop them except a little sniper, which can easily be killed by the nighthawk. The 3 howitzers suddenly become their friends as they are now guarding their airport for them. They won't be able to place down a refinery just yet though, they'll have to first clear trees and ore which is good, otherwise its an inevitable win for the allied player I think. Also, if you're using America, you'll have double para-drops on a map full of cliffs. Mirror matches might be more suitable for this map. Just one problem though; I can open the map in-game just fine, but I can't seem to open it in FinalAlert or zzattack's Map Renderer though? Why is that?
  2. Mine is set up with a HDMI cable (HDMI to HDMI) and 4k resolution on both Windows desktop and screen (automatic). Never mind, thanks anyway. YouTube does allow videos uploaded in 4k resolution to be shown in 4k resolution, it has done so for a while now. Here are a couple of examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUuKIpCM2o0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvF2Bu41FQY There are actually plenty of video websites that have 4k videos, including my favorite porn site
  3. Cool, my Windows Magnifier finally has a purpose! RA2/YR keeps crashing every time I try to load it up in 4k (on my 4k tv). How do you do it? I'm jealous But wait... how come it wasn't uploaded in 4k quality? The maximum setting you can set it to in YouTube is 1080p?
  4. That's really strange. Can you please upload a screen shot of this? And also, check that your desktop text/app size is set to 100%.
  5. Looks like only 1 from wf. Not to take away credit for your win, because you did play pretty well, but green and orange were carrying pink the entire match. I could imagine them constantly messaging him to do certain things, before finally giving up when their ore ran out while Yuri was still making brute-dollars . That well timed double-team on pink at the start was a huge set back for them.
  6. Oh ok. So with the exception of YR, the games use a mixture of both relay and p2p connections, and in the same match if need be? Cool.
  7. Ah ok. Which one is CnCNet?
  8. I don't understand, you mean there's nothing on the left window pane that says "...infantry, vehicles, aircraft, building..." ?
  9. For example, in a 1v1, when one player gives a command to one of it's tanks to MOVE, is that MOVE command transmitted to the server first, then from the server to the other player? Or is that MOVE command transmitted directly to the other player? Or does it go to both the server and the other player at the same time? Or something totally different. I'm just curious.
  10. This is only possible with a cheat program that allows the observer (or anyone else using the cheat) to be able to control everyone's units, as well as force them to surrender if they are breaking the host's rules. But it only works on the other servers.
  11. If you want to play only RA2, you do not need YR. You can play online at xwis.net. But if you want the added features which are only available on this server (CnCnet), you will need both YR and RA2.
  12. Hi, unfortunately only the older C&C games (Tiberian Dawn, Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 1) are free to download. C&C - The Ultimate Collection, which includes all the classics as well as RA2/YR, can be purchased from Origin. What you were downloading was the YR client, which allows you to play online at this server. <snip>
  13. For any, or all these classic C&C games, wouldn't it be cool to have zebra or tiger stripes on your tanks? Or desert/snow camo? I'm no modder, but my guess is that each 'skin' would have to be a separate voxel. But is it possible to have multiple voxels for ONE unit? If possible, this would be a pretty neat unlockable item. Players would have to play, say... 100 games to unlock the jungle camo skin, 200 games to unlock the 'Midnight' skin, and so on. And maybe 1000 games to have your clan's logo on the roof of your construction yard. It would have to somehow be unlocked for players who have reached the requirements, but still locked for everyone else.
  14. @Nyerguds I've read your reply (directly above this one) about 899 frikn times and I still don't get it . And worst, it actually created more questions for me, which I'm not going to bother asking because I'm still stuck on my first question . What I do understand though (or think I do) is that Westwood only allowed for 100 mission/campaign numbers (0-99) which have possible conflicts, but only with the non-existing 'Civilian' side, so it does not matter. the game has problems differentiating between mission names that are only 2 letters different from each other. For instance:: SCG199EA SCG299EB SCG399EC could be seen (from the games point of view) as the same mission because they only have 2 letters that are different from each other? Is that right? you modified the game to be able to read an additional 900 numbers/missions (100-999) to resolve this issue. But that's cool, I've made my peace with it. I've come to the conclusion that these mission files are much like my penis - I don't really need to know it's inner workings, I only need to know where to put it in: 0-99 => for mini-campaigns 100-899 => for single missions 900-999 => also for mini-campaigns Is this correct?
