  1. i decided to follow your advice. After unetbootin is finished, I will put XP back onto this machine, to be able to run CNCNet and play C&C. And yeah, I know it's old (maybe ancient is a better description of it ). But still it did everything I needed it to do.
  2. Ok, so what would you suggest? getting the mate Desktop Environment voor my xubuntu install? How can I solve the crappy drivers issue then? this is my note book: http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay?javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c00056671-1%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.tpst=ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01&sp4ts.oid=316673&ac.admitted=1392460506474.876444892.199480143 it says I have an ATI mobility Radeon graphics with 16 or 32 mb memory. I just tried a game using virtual box. It was possibly even slower than when I tried it using Wine. I hope to find a solution. About the end of life support: here in Holland, there is new legislation regarding online banking which makes it an obligation for users to have an update and secured system (virus scanner, firewall, security updates) when using online banking services. If not, you might not have a claim in case of fishing. Therefore, XP here is no option anymore.
  3. i will search how i can find out if my laptop can handle opengl. i also will look at archlinux, although I'm not a Linux specialist so I hope Archlinux is low-profile and easy to install/work with for someone who Always worked with Windows (XP).
  4. I switched on my laptop to xubuntu because of the ending support for XP (no security updates anymore) (I had xp and ran cncnet perfectly after shutting down some processes which required a lot of cpu / memory). On my desktop pc, I will install a dual boot with Linux for main purpose stuff and xp only for CNCnet and a few other things. I hope I will be able to close every single port except for CNCnet to work so I don't have to be affraid for any fishing / hacking / malicious software etc. on other thought: Installing a clean XP with .net framework and CNCnet in a virtual box on my Linux machine, would that work? (not only cncnet runs very slow, the game itself is also terribly slow with maximum game speed)
  5. i somehow seem to have C&C net working, although, it's terribly slow... I got bothered with many errors, dotnet20 during install, after that, something about winemenubuilder etc. etc. Could it be that running cncnet (and c&c) under Wine requires more sources then running it normally in win xp? im trying to run it on xubuntu 12.4 on my 1,2 ghz pentium 3 with 762 (or something like that)? video of starting a game in the lobby: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52924699/linux%20errors/VID_20140212_220550.m4v
  6. Hi, I am desperate to get CNCnet working on my notebook with Xubuntu (12.04) so I can play Tiberian Dawn online. I tried everything as pointed out in the different topics (http://cnc-comm.com/community/index.php?topic=1712.msg8491#msg8491) on this forum but so far, unsuccesfull. Is there someone who can help me to get this working? I have teamviewer installad so if that makes it a lot easier to see what happens during install, please let me know! I tried: -installing using playonlinux (and also installing dotnet20, gdiplus but still errors) -installing directly from wine using terminal (several errors, I have an error report in my dropbox: (will post it when I've found it) Hope you guys can help me! or might a Linux version of this game and CNCnet be possible?
  7. will there also be something like this for Tiberian Dawn?
