    red alert cncnet

    That is ok, win xp is supported! Maybe try the easiest solution first, download .NET from microsoft, start it and choose "repair" http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/6/e/c6e88215-0178-4c6c-b5f3-158ff77b1f38/NetFx20SP2_x64.exe If that doesn't help, read through everything in the other link i posted. Kannst auch deutsch schreiben wenn das einfacher für dich ist!

    red alert cncnet

    Check this: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/7919-red-alert-cncnet-doesnt-work/?do=findComment&comment=61379 (Ignore the first part about the LAN server)
  4. A similar problem has been reported before, It only seems to happen on windows 10. Does it hang on "Creating theories on likely enemy plan.." ? There is no known solution for it yet But I'm curious, you say you downloaded the patch for the scrollrate issues, so that means you could actually play the game before using the patch? Normally tiberian sun doesn't work at all on windows 10, did you maybe apply another patch before using TSpatch? Maybe that's somehow related to the bug
  5. Download http://downloads.cncnet.org/TSpatch.exe TSpatch supports The First Decade, The Ultimate Collection from origin and old CD installations. Do not apply TSpatch and the The unofficial The First Decade Patch to the same game folder! Features Fix for the following error: "A mouse is required for playing Tiberian Sun." Fix for the following error: "One or more DLL files were missing or damaged. Please reinstall."

Can't return to the game after alt+tab or windows key? Black screen bug on windows 7? Open the config program and change your renderer until you found one that's working for you. Firestorm missions are not working? Videos do not play? The issue can be caused by the unofficial The First Decade Patch, some missions will not be playable anymore if you install TSpatch and the unofficial The First Decade patch into the same game folder.

    red alert 2/Yuris revenge on windows 10

    Why don't you just tell him how to fix the bug? He seems to know how to use the file explorer and how to find the game folder, so he will probably be able to get it done without teamviewer. I guess a no-cd patch might even help him, this way he could bypass the TFD launcher and start gamemd.exe directly without it forwarding him to the launcher. Should be legit since he owns the game. But finding a legit no-cd patch might be difficult though

    red alert 2/Yuris revenge on windows 10

    Ok, what you see there is not the game, it's a special TFD launcher I guess. Did you already try to start the game without the launcher (not sure if that work with TFD) Look for RA2MD.exe and gamemd.exe in the game folder.

    red alert 2/Yuris revenge on windows 10

    No, you don't need to try that one. Could you make a screenshot and show where it stops? compatibility modes should be all disabled, otherwise it might not work properly.
  9. I think @dkeeton added a patch related to that, but it's only for multi player. Single player doesn't have such a change. But he probably knows what this is about, I'll ask him to post here @dkeeton was working on a patch lfor random map, but I'm not sure how it works. I think you need a special map that you load and it will then just put you on a random map, I'll ask him about it
  10. 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 Red Alert Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/ra-config.7z C&C95 Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/td-config.7z Download and extract the files into your game folder. (You may not want to extract ddraw.ini, otherwise you may override your settings)

    red alert 2/Yuris revenge on windows 10

    So the game is starting and going fullscreen? (Is that what you mean with the loading screen?) Sorry, I never had the first decade so I don't know how it looks there. If the game is starting then TS-DDraw might help, just download ddraw.dll from github and place it inside of your game folder: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/8350-new-ts-ddraw-release-tiberian-sun-red-alert-2-yuris-revenge/ The original westwood studios copies of red alert 2 and yuris revenge are not working too well anymore, you won't even be able to install them! It's because microsoft dropped support for some features used by the games (Safedisc)

    Scaling filters for C&C 95 and RA1

    cnc-ddraw doesn't work with YR, it's only for C&C1, Red Alert 1 and a few other non C&C games. I might add it to ts-ddraw later though

    Scaling filters for C&C 95 and RA1

    @Zjorz first test version is done! Still need to optimize it and do some tweaks to get all shaders working, but most should be working already (those that require linear=true are not working, nor do the multi-pass ones work) https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/7782-new-cnc-ddraw-release-red-alert-1-cc95/ You can download more shaders here https://github.com/libretro/glsl-shaders Don't forget to set the shader path in ddraw.ini: shader=*.glsl It's not smart yet, if you use a 2x shader then make sure you set Width/Height in ddraw.ini to 2x of your game res manually. e.g. if you play in 640x400, set width=1280 and height=800 renderer=opengl must be set in ddraw.ini, it wont work with gdi Video with xBRZ freescale http://cnc.cloudns.pro/Test/index.php?video=RedAlert_xbrz-freescale_shader_test.mp4 Note: It's a bit laggy, I have a terrible intel GPU and xBRZ is the most heavy one I tested so far. I guess it will work fine on any semi-good gpu though. If not, then try a less demanding shader instead.

    Attention to the Chinese Community

    There are some chinese servers you can use, you don't need to host a own server. If you want to play faster games from china then make sure all players in the game room are from china too, just one from player from outside of china will slow it down a lot. Make sure none of the chinese use a VPN, this will lag too. Players from hong kong / taiwan etc will lag too (even though they are very close, but they are not behind the great firewall of china). If you want to play with players outside of china then you'll have to play at night between 1am - 9am, it will be much faster then for chinese.

    Attention to the Chinese Community

    Just start the server and it will show up in the list and you can use it! It will probably not work on your home connection, that's very problematic in china, but you can try it.

    How to Record GamePlay using TS-DDRAW

    What game is it about? I could record Tiberian Sun with TS-DDraw GDI and OBS just fine on win10 (using display capture) Get TS-DDraw GDI here: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/8350-new-ts-ddraw-release-tiberian-sun-red-alert-2-yuris-revenge/ Get OBS here: https://obsproject.com/

    Anyone make a Mod fix for Origin C&C games?

    Why do you actually need those launchers? I never understood it, can you explain what's needed to start the mod? I was reading that these launchers let command line parameters pass through, so I guess you need to pass some parameters to the game to launch the mods? Origin lets you specify command line parameters too, so I really have no idea what's the deal with these launchers.

  21. It's crashing because the file "temperat.pal" is missing, which should be inside of "redalert.mix". Try to re-install the game. Make sure your security programs are not interfering with the installer

  23. Looking for testers for a new release of TS-DDraw. Download: https://github.com/CnCNet/ts-ddraw/releases Should work for Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. For all those who don't know TS-DDraw, this is what it can do: Working windowed mode without having to change windows to 16bit Makes the game running smooth on Windows XP / 7 / 8 / 10 and wine (Need testers for Vista!) Can fix black screens, invisible menus and other issues ddraw.zip

  25. @boshank20 That error message is interesting.... Still can't help you with it, but i'll do some research and testing later. @Bob_Bob Can you attach the ra95crash.dmp file here to a post in the forums? You can find it in your game folder. I can already see that there is a high DPI problem, the window is getting scaled (this is not supposed to happen...). Did you enable any compatibility modes for the game? don't do that!
