  1. I've played this game in the past and had the same issue and never found a fix. I have changed all the compatibility settings and messed with changing the renderer to ts-ddraw and others. I've also added the videobackbuffer=no to the correct folders. Offline skirmish play is completely fine and this only effects online custom games for me. There is a stutter freeze which only lasts for less than a second but is almost constant making it feel very skippy. The other issue is like a very low FPS issue to where its almost impossible to play. My units move extremely slow and buildings are a pain to build up. Note this is a brand new pc I built within the last 2 months. rtx 2080, ryzen 7 2700x, 32gb ram, m2 ssd etc the pc should not be having any issues with the game, this is the same problem I had on my 10 year old computer.
  2. I am having an issue with my game Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. I have been able to play the game but it freezes at random times throughout game play both in campaign and skirmish and it is very annoying. I have my settings to compatibility mode and everything but am wondering if there is a trick or a specific setting I need in order to play successfully without having to save my games every 2 minutes? Thank you.
  3. Hello everyone, I just made an account to ask you you all for some support. Ever since the new update (with the speedbar) for RA2 and Yuri's revenge, the campaign freezes and crashes at random moments. I can't play the campaign anymore. Does anybody else also has this problem and did you find a solution? Thanks!

  5. Hello All, I am brand new to this site but I hope someone can assist me. I have just downloaded the Command and Conquer Ultimate Collection so I can start playing my favorite games again. However I am coming a crossed an issue with the compatibility mode and what settings I need them to have. I am getting all the audio, but none of the visual for the game. The screen is shrinking to the size of the screen from the game from my memory, the audio like I said is there, even the large mouse courser mark is there, but the visual is not. I'm pretty sure Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge, the games I'm currently working on installing first, run on XP and Vista so I believe I have the operating system down, but not the visual settings needed. I currently have an HP Windows 10 computer with Intel CORE i5 7th gen processor. I don't know if that is really needed info but wanted to have it out there just in case. Please help me so I can start playing the games I love from my younger days. Thank you.

  18. I installed the collection from Origin but every time I run the game, it's super laggy. I have the game speed set at 5 but it runs like if it was at 1 or 2. Every so often, it'll speed up and everything moves fast but that only lasts about 5 seconds and it slows down again. I've ran task manager on the side to keep an eye on the performance. RAM sits usually at about 20% and CPU is at around the 24% mark. I also don't have any other major programs open in the background, not even a Google chrome window open. Only things running are the logitech mouse program for the button mapping and Origin, of course. Set up: Intel i5 4670k, GTX 1060 3gb, 16gb RAM (DDR4), installed in a SanDisk SSD.

So I've decided to make my own in c#. With the help of the RA++ team (Omniblade, CCHyper & Tomsons26, anyway) I figured out the font format itself, and managed to make code to read it and show it as image. Apparently this format is used for quite a bit more than C&C1 and RA1; we used fonts from Legend of Kyrandia as test material as well, and apparently this should support Dune II too. Fonts have no colour palette of their own. They are 4-bit (meaning, 16 colour) images that, much like SHP files, receive colours from the game at the moment they're drawn. So I started off by generating a simple black-to-white fade for the palette, with black as the background color. This version also already moved the character down according to the extra Y-offset in the file. Next step: making an actual editor. I already had a zooming pixel image viewer from a little C&C-N64 project I worked on in the past few weeks, so that part was no problem (as already seen in the previous image). So the next step: drawing an editing grid on it. Well, I say "on it", but actually I needed three extra image layers positioned both behind and in front of the original image to pull it off, lol. Transparency is a strange thing in .Net controls. Next was getting a pixel drawn on that to indicate your editing position. That was easier than expected, really, and now I had a nifty giant pixel following my mouse around. Also note the fancy program icon; Tomsons26 made that I decided, around this time, to switch to a more colourful palette that would let you easily distinguish the different indices when editing. I just basically went over all hue values and made a nice little rainbow. I also coded in some extra behaviour to allow disabling the grid, and the red frame that shows you which part of it is actually editable. Of course, an editor is utterly useless if it can't actually save files, a little detail Siberian_GRemlin seemed to forget when he released a "demo" of his editor... eight years ago now. So after editing worked, I went into the mess of trying to save the image data back to palette. It took a few tries to get it right. But, finally, I managed to get a saved file! No, wait, crap, that's one of the failed ones. Ahem. Anyway. The pic I linked before shows the final successful attempt. There's a little pixel I made transparent, in the middle, to prove it was actually edited. Trust me, it was orange originally Now, there's just one thing still missing from the editor... and that's, well, the actual editing, more or less. I could only change the colour to one specific one with the left mouse button, and to background (transparency) with the right mouse button. So I dug up another nice control I had lying around for one of my older projects, namely a palette-loading colour selector. Took some time to adapt it, since the original was meant for 256 colours, but, I'm happy with the final result! It's starting to look good, no? At this moment, it's still missing some vital features, though; you can't change the size of the images or their Y-offset, and you can't add new character images to a font. These will come later, but at this moment, I do actually have a working editor. It's obviously still beta at the moment, but to anyone who wants to mess around with it, here it is: Westwood Font Editor v0.4 The source code is in the folder too, for those who are interested.
  21. I have Windows 8.1 and uninstalled the KB to allow me to install RA2 and YR. I should have all the EXEs set to Run as Administrator and Windows XP SP3 compatibility. I went into RA2.ini and RA2MD.ini and, following internet instructions, changed the Video settings in both files to this (1920x1080 is the resolution my monitor is set to): [Video] ScreenWidth=1920 ScreenHeight=1080 StretchMovies=no VideoBackBuffer=no When I go into Red Alert 2, the game opens in full screen but the actual game contents are only in about half the screen (centered). To click any of the menu options I have to click off to the side. In other words, the click points aren't on the same resolution as the display. When I go into Yuri's Revenge, the game opens in full screen and actually shows all the game contents in full screen. The menu buttons all click in the right places. When I start a game, everything there is in full screen too. However, I'm not able to scroll all the way to the right nor all the way to the bottom. The cursor simply wont go past a certain point, thus preventing me from clicking on a bunch important game components, like creating units. Is there a maximum resolution RA2 and YR can handle? Or is there some other issue here?
