    Maker of official unofficial stuff!
  1. hi @IchoTolot , welcome to the forums I watched all your flame dancer videos, was a lot fun! Some bugs of set 2 need to get fixed for sure, like the invisible building (the one you found instantly somehow lol), that bug is related to the porting Lightning Hunter did and not the missions themselves. Also the bug where parts of the terrain were invisible (bug of the desert theater) needs to get fixed. There was also a mission where you only destroyed a naval yard and won right after that (you were supposed to destroy the constuction yard too). That one isn't related to the port, it's a bug in a old mission made 20 years ago.. Would be nice to fix that one too though Anyways, thanks for testing and reporting back @Lightning Hunter You got some more work to do before you release it! A missing SHP and a broken desert theater are waiting for you
  2. Some random info about high pings and fast games: example setup: Euro server is used, 2 players are from Europe, 2 are from Australia Player A: 40ms ping to the server (Euro) Player B: 30ms ping to the server (Euro) Player C: 310ms ping to the server (Australia) Player D: 320ms ping to the server (Australia) A is sending data to B: 40+30 = 70ms (All good, no problem) A is sending data to C: 40+310 = 350 (Still ok, but close to the limit) C is sending data to D: 310+320 = 630 (Way too much...) TL;DR Having one player being far away from the server is no problem, but 2 or more players being far away from the server will slow the game down quite a bit
  3. I think you are not talking about TSpatch but about the full game single player installer? If that's the case then I'll have to forward your question to the guy who made the single player installer (I only take care of TSpatch myself)
  4. The "access denied" error is not related to the game, you could probably find some info about it on google. But you can also just start the game via game.exe in the game folder rather than using the launcher, I guess the problem is related to the launcher trying to run another executable
  5. Maybe caused by a security program, did you allow the game in your anti virus?
  6. You guys can try fake fullscreen, see here: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/2606-tiberian-sun-patches-fix-for-the-windows-8-10-menu-problems-and-more/?do=findComment&comment=55400
  7. Keep window mode enabled, just make the window almost as big as your screen. There is also a hotkey combination you can press to minimize the blackscreen game, it's like alt+tab on windows but I forgot what keys it were on a mac (no need to restart) Claus is not using the portingkit, he is using this version: http://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/files/CnCNet.dmg
  8. Latest version got window mode enabled, did you turn that off? Should be easier to close the game in window mode than fullscreen in case that bug happens. I think it was ctrl + tab to unlock the cursor
  9. You are from Egypt, is that correct? It's a known problem, make sure you read through this: i-cant-play-online One of the players is using a VPN and managed to get it working. Or if you don't want to use a vpn then try though all cncnet servers to find out which ones are working (host your own games using servers that work for you)
  10. It's normal that it adds the 6667, all looking good. I guess it can only be your firewall/anti virus blocking the access to that port. Do you have the same security programs installed on both pcs? You should be able to use the old LAN with this installer: https://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/ You can do a mini web install, then in the launcher go on Play Offline. Don't start cncnet though, cause it will remove the LAN patch from the folder since it kept causing problems
  11. Looking for a specific map? You can search our database, example link: http://mapdb.cncnet.org/search.php?game=ra&age=0&search=defen age= is the maximum age of the map in months, keep it on 0 to find all maps search= is the keyword to search for in the map title (minimum length is 3 chars) Looks pretty bad right now but should get the job done, might update it at some point
  12. Could you try to run cncnet on one of the other computers first to see if one of them can be the server?
  13. Oh DxWnd it is, yes that's a known problem. Some player get this issue and other not. It's weird that all other options are not working. You can try to use the DxWnd Windowed mode, from what I heard it doesn't cause such issues on problematic machines. If you don't want to play in a window then you could set up a fake full screen by enabling DxWnd + "Windowed mode" + "No Window Border" + game resolution 1920x1080 Fake fullscreen should be working fine for the campaign. For Skirmish/LAN/Online use the CnCNet client instead

  15. LAN doesn't require any settings, everything is automatic. The PC that starts the game first will become the server, all others will find the server automatically. Make sure the LAN server is not blocked by your firewall or anti virus and it should work fine. You need to be connected to the same router of course. If one is connected via cable and the other one via wifi then it might not work. If you can't figure it out then just use the Online mode instead, it has a new "Automatic" connection setting which will get you connected in the fastest possible way. It will try LAN first, then Online Peer-To-Peer and finally it can also use servers if everything else fails.
