I've been trying to Mod RA1 just to try and balance the two factions (Soviet and Allies), however I'm having a few issues..
If I run a skirmish match through CNCNET, the changes I have made in rules.ini aren't applied, but if I run a skirmish game not through CNCNET they are applied. However, not running it through CNCNET means running it through the Windows 95 version and the old game lobby screen is awful because there's only a handful of the options available to change (I'm sure you're all aware of this). For example, I cannot mess around with alliances, only 5 of the countries are available etc etc.
Also, when I create a map with the built-in editor, it seems to change the rules.ini, and the CNCNET client tries to tell me there's cheats in the map, which I have not done?
My questions are:
1. Is there any way I can make my modified rules.ini work for the CNC client of RA1?
2. Why is it saying my maps have 'cheats' in? And is there anyway to change this?
