  1. Thanks for the reply. So you're saying it might be better to install TFD from scratch without additional patches and then to install CNCNet on top of that - correct? Does CNCNet include a NoCD patch? If not, is there one you can recommend? One of our laptops doesn't have a DVD Drive, and I'd have to reconnect an external drive each time we want to play. (I have duplicate physical purchased copies of RA2, YR, and TFD, so this really is about convenience only)
  2. Thanks for your replies. I did not know that both sides of the sync file were needed. I'll provide it next time it happens. I'm FAIRLY certain it has nothing to do with tunnel servers since we only play in LAN 😉 It's only the two of us. We are both on gaming laptops. I installed RA2 and YR on both computers the same way - using the TFD DVD, each with their own serial numbers. Then I installed the patch that I mentioned, then I installed CNCNet, updated CNCNet, and that's it. We have a few custom maps, and I copied those over from a shared drive as well as the patch. So both games should be 100% identical. My WiFi router is pretty powerful and should be able to handle this, but I do have a lot of WiFi enabled devices, so I might try CAT5 cables. I do remember having had Reconnection Errors already 22 years ago and 15 years ago when we used to play the original, and back then we were on regular computers on a wired network. Is it possible that the patch I used has introduced a networking bug? I posted another question about which patch is the best to use (it has one answer that I haven't checked yet). I'm sure none of us cheat - we have self-made and edited maps in which the oil derrick money is raised to extreme heights, but we have the same version of the map, and we have had the reconnection error on the basic maps that came with the game and CNCNet. I'll wait for it to happen again and will send the sync files from both computers. Thanks!
  3. Hi. What is the most stable base version of RA2 and YR that I can get out of the TFD compilation before adding CNCNet to it?The patch I've been using (don't remember from where) is called: tfd-103-rev4.exe It includes a NoCD patch, but otherwise still has issues like error reconnecting or not even starting a cooperative map game. So which is the best patch that will make the base game the most stable? I'd love to see the answer to this question stickied or put into the FAQ, by the way :-)
  4. Hi. I was so happy to find out about CNCNet because my wife and I used to play RA2 together 20 years ago, and now we can do that again 🙂 Sadly, we received the dreaded Reconnection Error after a few games. We are both on Windows 10, fairly recent gaming laptops, very high-powered WiFi. I installed RA2 and YR from the First Decade DVD, then updated the games using the patch file "tfd-103-rev4.exe" that I had found a few years back (which includes a No CD Patch). Then I installed CNCNet for YR and let it do its updates. On another computer, I had read-only troubles, so I installed the games into C:\Games instead of Program Files. We were playing a few maps in LAN mode without issues until just now. This last map was Malaboo Bay. We had 6 Easy AI opponents. We do not intend to play online. If I installed the wrong patch for the game, please kindly send me a link to a better patch. Otherwise, please advise on how I can fix this. Thanks! SYNC_CNCNET0.TXT
