  1. RA2 - 32-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Westwood\Red Alert 2 RA2 - 64-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Westwood\Red Alert 2 YR - 32-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Westwood\Yuri's Revenge YR - 64-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Westwood\Yuri's Revenge All of them under the "Serial" value. All serials are written without the dashes between number sets. Nope, they're not there. Not for the Origin version at least. I believe it's the key at HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Electronic Arts>EA Core>Staging>1001298>ergc That said I had no issues playing with a friend using the Origin versions so I imagine they fixed the giving the same serial thing issue at some point. Ha, that's the first location that makes sense. Is the 1001298 number always the same? I got it as well, but I got other Origin games installed too, so if it's sequential it might differ per account/machine. I haven't tried out whether this works, probably won't have the time today either. It's only one serial though, rather than two separate ones for RA2 and Yuri's revenge. I wonder whether that'd be an issue.
  2. Either adding registry entries named 'Serial', or modifying the WOLData.key file with notepad (which is more difficult, since the numbers inside don't seem to correspond to any serial key one could add) seems to does the trick. However, I still can't connect. I'd probably have to adjust my router settings. Overall though, it just doesn't seem to be worth it. CNCNet's online modification seems to work just fine on the Origin version. It's easier to have each PC on the network connect to internet separately and then set up a game. It's not like RA2 is such a bandwidth hogger anno 2015 anyway.
  3. Ha,.. hadn't thought of that: actually adding a registry entry. Gonna try and post the results.
  4. Downloaded this, and had my brother and friends download it on their Origin account as well. Figured we'd bring back the golden days of CNC LAN'ning. Got the LAN patch up and running,.. only to find out the Origin version of RA2 still uses serials, and apparently uses the same serial for every copy for every account. The game connects just fine over LAN, but it won't allow any Origin user to join the game of any other Origin user. Now, I still have my old multi-CD copy lying around, so I actually got a legit spare serial, and wanted to input that in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>EA Games>Serial/CD-Key, but there does not seem to be a registry entry for the serial. I subsequently checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>%, and all other possible locations (the Origin version of RA2 seems to create quite a few registry folders), but to no avail. There isn't a serial anywhere to be found! Has anyone else found a workaround using the Origin version of RA2 yet, or has had better luck finding the CD-Key registry entry? I got it working on my Win10 setup Would you mind sharing your experience for the benefit of others? I got it working on Windows 10 as well, without any modifications. The LAN serial issue aside, it runs without any problems, right out of the (virtual) box.

Edit: wrong thread, reposted this is the correct thread on the Origin version.
