    Maker of official unofficial stuff!
  1. Added some new features such as saving position of the window and alt+enter to switch between window/full screen. https://github.com/CnCNet/cnc-ddraw/releases Download cnc-ddraw.zip and extract ddraw.dll into your game folder. (You may not want to extract ddraw.ini, otherwise you may override your settings)
  2. C&C Gold does not start

    ddraw.ini Also, If windowed is enabled, then make sure mhack is enabled too. Set maxfps to 60 to prevent fast scrolling issues
  3. C&C Gold does not start

    TiberianDawn_Online_installer.exe is just a plain multiplayer only version, that's why Myg was referring to it as the "CnCNet version" since it was made specially for CnCNet Online games. cc95v106c_r3_u4_full.exe is the right file (the only one you can find for Single player), we'll have to wait for Nyerguds to help out with this one. My guess is that Nyerguds enabled some compatibility modes for the game executable which are causing all the issues. If you want to try already now without waiting for him, do the following: 1) Enable cnc-ddraw in the config program 2) Open ddraw.ini in your game folder and make sure the renderer is set to "gdi". 3) Disable all compatibility modes C&C95.exe, make sure you apply them for all users too. After that, don't open the cnc config program again, it might revert some changes and break it again.
  4. Game crashes at launch using the launcher

    Crash is related to rendering, can you please check if there are any compatibility modes enabled for ra95.exe, if that's the case, disable all of them. If it still doesn't work, go into the Red Alert config program and try to tick the OpenGL checkbox and then retry. If it still doesn't work, download the latest "DDrawCompat - experimental/test release" and extract the ddraw.zip into your game folder, if it asks you to override files, click yes. DDrawCompat: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases Direct link to file: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases/download/experimental/ddraw.zip Please report back if you got it working (or not)!
  5. C&C Gold does not start

    For your Tiberian Sun issues, try to apply my patch: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/2606-tiberian-sun-patches-fix-for-the-windows-8-10-menu-problems-and-more/ You need to specify what files you used to install/patch the games, otherwise it will be difficult to help since we got multiple people working on the games. RedAlert1_Online_Installer.exe -> I made this one TiberianDawn_Online_installer.exe -> I made this one TiberianSun_Online_Installer.exe -> I made this one RA1installer.exe -> I made this one TSpatch.exe -> I made this one cc95v106c_r3_u4_full.exe -> Nyerguds made this one TSinstaller3-beta11r6.exe -> Tore made this one
  6. C&C Gold does not start

    You can't play the campagin with "TiberianDawn_Online_installer.exe", nor "cnc95.exe" - Those are for multiplayer only. Can you try if the multiplayer version works for you without issues? https://downloads.cncnet.org/TiberianDawn_Online_installer.exe The multiplayer version (TiberianDawn_Online_installer.exe) was made by me, if it works then I'll tell nyerguds the settings I used so he can apply it to his patch for the full game (cc95v106c_r3_u4_full.exe)
  7. C&C Gold does not start

    Try to enable cnc-ddraw again in the config program, now go into your game folder and look for ddraw.ini, open it in notepad and switch the renderer (If it's "opengl", try "gdi")
  8. Which installer did you use? TSinstaller3-beta11r6.exe or TiberianSun_Online_Installer.exe? Did you also try DxWnd+WindowMode?
  9. Framesendrate Suggestions

    6/7 should be good values for YR with the currently used protocol version (2)
  10. never thought i would say this but yuri is awesome :D

    You can change your name to ShowtimeYR here https://forums.cncnet.org/settings/username/
  11. I didn't know where to post it since it actually works with all classic westwood games (td, ra, ts, ra2, dune 2000). DDrawCompat is a DirectDraw proxy dll just like cnc-ddraw, ts-ddraw, ddwrapper. It improved the performance dramatically for everyone who tested it yet (went over 14000 FPS in ra1 for me!!). It also solves the alt+tab bugs on windows 8/10 (and the menu bugs too). It should work fine on Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10. (We had no one to try Vista yet) Even if you don't have any issues with the games, it's still worth a try. It prevents slow downs in big battles online or even in skirmish with AI. Give it a try: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases Note: use the latest experimental release
  12. CnCNet Update Changelogs

    CnCNet Client Quick Match updates (works on windows XP again) A new "/map" command was added to select/suggest maps from the database with ease - Map DB Changed default server to prevent (Bad Username) errors on connect - To install the update manually type the following commands: /install update35 /restart
  13. Lobby not starting

    Nope, there wasn't any update for the CnCNet client for around 2 weeks now. Did you maybe install a different wine version? Did you already try to remove the ".cncnet" wine prefix in your home folder and afterwards launch cncnet again so it creates a fresh wine prefix?
  14. Boxing units also sometimes issues a move command

    Red Alert 1 had this too, was fixed already in the multi player version. Don't think anyone made a fix for C&C1 yet
  15. Mouse problem - units deselect themselves

    What game installation do you have?
