  1. Use P2P to improve connection

    Yes, Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, and Tiberian Sun are all p2p games that fallback to servers when a p2p connection cannot be made. Yuri's Revenge and mods use a tunnel server only (except in ranked matches), eventually Yuri's Revenge will get updated for p2p.
  2. Why wont any of the games scroll away from the starting area?

    It could be that windows is scaling the game for high your high DPI display. If that's the case you'll need to disable high dpi scaling for the game exe.
  3. Megawealth mode can build mines

    Looks like the client changed upstream and we didn't modify the installation to match. This will be fixed in the next update.
  4. Ra2 and Yuri┬┤s Revenge Black Screen Windows 10

    You might have to change the renderer in the Options menu. Try default first, then ts-ddraw, then narzoul.
  5. Unable to update client

    Maybe your antivirus is blocking the update? Try to delete the folder called Updater and restart the client.
  6. help ra2 wont download only yuri

    If you want to play red alert 2 on Cncnet you have to have Yuri's Revenge installed. In the Cncnet game lobby, there is a checkbox to put the game in ra2 mode.
  7. QM issues

    Can you find the game specifically? https://ladder.cncnet.org/ladder/3-2018/yr/player/Vwwwwwwww
  8. YR & RA2 mode, what needs updating!

    Can you check that this is still the case after the updates in 3.81 ?
  9. CnCNet Yuri's Revenge Update Changelog

    3.84 Red Alert 2: Sound for Capturing tech buildings has been restored MCV deploy sound has been restored Yuri is now able to mind control 1 unit General: A crash that can happen at the score screen has been fixed.
  10. What things make the ladder/ranked unappealing?

    I discovered that if you make the spawn locations all 0 it will be random. So like if you put spawn_order = 0,0 the spawn locations will be randomly chosen by the game, which should always make them diagonals.
  11. YR & RA2 mode, what needs updating!

    I took the rules.ini file and added the things that were hardcoded in RA2, but then became INI settings in YR. In some cases the [Section] changed for config knobs and I moved those. So I thought that maybe I changed [Mindcontrol] settings but as you've pointed out, I didn't change that, it's just the Damage knob changed meanings and I didn't know it. (Actually, tomsons did notice and try to tell me but I didn't understand him sorry @tomsons26) I will correct it. Maybe the deploy sound was hard coded to be the same for every BaseUnit. I just need to find the sound file then I'll be able to correct it. The crashfile will be useful. Looks like it's crashing while writing the stats.
  12. YR & RA2 mode, what needs updating!

    Can you confirm there is a sound in RA2? I can't get Origin to launch atm. Do you still have the EXCEPT_CNCNET.TXT file or do you know what username you used when it crashed? [MindControl] Damage=10 ; I think this his how many units Yuri can mind control. Right now this is 10, I don't know why I put it to 10. Should it be 1? (spawner2.xdp)
  13. YR & RA2 mode, what needs updating!

    Ra2 mode has been updated and some problems that were reported here are fixed. See the notes here
  14. What things make the ladder/ranked unappealing?

    You can try it, but test to make sure the qm client doesn't crash when you put map 65 in.
