    Hmm, those restart issues might be tricky to fix. We'll look into them. AFAIK Q and Ctrl + Alt are unfortunately hard-coded and cannot be easily changed, since there are no Keyboard.ini entries for them.
  2. Mental omega client cannot launch ?

    If you have another Windows 7 system and know how to use regedit, you can try taking a look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{56FDF344-FD6D-11D0-958A-006097C9A090}, back up that registry hive and then restore it on the problematic system. Taking the hive from a Windows 8 or 10 system could work too. If your Windows 7 is 64-bit, you might also need to restore HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{56FDF344-FD6D-11D0-958A-006097C9A090}.
  3. Mental omega client cannot launch ?

    Your Windows 7 installation is corrupt. Particularly, you're missing the "Task Bar Communication" {56FDF344-FD6D-11D0-958A-006097C9A090} COM component. Try opening a command prompt with administrator rights, and then run the following command sfc /scannow Keep an eye on it to see if it reports any corrupted files. Check if the client works afterwards.
  4. How can I use ForcedOptions on my Custom Map?

    I'll consider it. Although I think a key like HiddenStartingLocations= might work better. It'd be possible, but I don't want to break maps that already make use of the client's features. There's not many of those, but still. Because the client was mostly developed based on the different projects' (DTA, TI, MO, YR) needs and I've mostly been the only developer, there is no real documentation. Instead, you can look at the different projects that already utilize the client, or its source code for how it works.
  5. How can I use ForcedOptions on my Custom Map?

    It's easiest to use a waypoint index higher than 7 for the EnemyHouse spawn location, the client allows it, and I think the game should allow it too (IIRC it works at least in Tiberian Sun). So for example place waypoint 10 in the map editor and specify that for the EnemyHouse0 starting location. Use waypoints 0-7 for human players only.

  7. How can I use ForcedOptions on my Custom Map?

    The client version needs to be at least for it to work, and MO's client is older than that. You'll need to wait for the MO team to publish an update. You cannot. Why do you want to hide it?
  8. How can I use ForcedOptions on my Custom Map?

    You can't use a separate INI with custom maps. Instead, create a [ForcedOptions] section to the map file itself, and there set chkSuperweapons=true. There is some way to replace FinalAlert's generated preview image with a higher-quality image, but I can't remember it.
  9. dta client eror and kaboom message eror

    @sorviettt I'm not sure whether your graphics chip cuts the client's minimum requirements, but try the following: Download and install Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 4.0 Refresh Go to your Yuri's Revenge directory, then to the "Resources" sub-directory, and there start clientxna.exe (depending on Windows settings it might display just "clientxna" as the file's name)
  10. dta client eror and kaboom message eror

    Hello, We need some additional information to help you out. In order for us to work out your issue, we will require your client.log file. Please attach it to your reply. Finding your client.log file: Navigate to your Red Alert 2 folder. This is where CnCNet is installed. Look for the folder called "Client" Inside this folder, there will be a file called client.log
  11. dta client eror and kaboom message eror

    You have no graphics device / graphics drivers installed. You need at least a DirectX9 compatible graphics device with supported drivers for playing Yuri's Revenge on CnCNet.
  12. How to connect to a password protected tunnel server?

    No, the client (MO/YR/DTA/TI one) doesn't support password-protected tunnel servers. You're the first one ever to actually even ask about them.

  15. Annoying Error Message for CNCnet YR

    The CnCNet client has nothing to do with that page shown in the URL, but it does use the IE component / API to access some pages on the CnCNet server. It's like some piece of software (malware?) is redirecting the client to that script, and then that error message is shown.
