  1. Hi there, I'm aware that in the past few days, bots or some such have been attempting to flood the server by constantly posting in the chat window about some freenode blogs. One of these blogs was by a bloke named Brian Ostergaard, apparently. I can only assume that the server is automatically banning these bots, based on keywords which recur in their incessant posting of these links to blogs. Me being me, I thought that i was being hilarious when i asked the server using the !seen command, !seen Brianostergaard. It seems that i was either too amusing for the server to handle, or the server found my comment distasteful, since I was instantly cast out of the community and banished into a black hole of perpetual server disconnects and subsequently, haven't been able to log in since. Am i going to be able to reconnect to server after a certain amount of time, or should i assume that presently, i am permanently banned until said ban is manually lifted? Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. In no way was i attempting to advocate the flooding of the server, i was simply being silly and probably part of me was not surprised at all to be banned, since these bots had started to recieve bans, which as i said, i can only assume were being banned based on keywords in their recurrent text links. Thanks in advance for any help received. In future i will know better than to ask where Brian Ostergaard is. I do not care where he is, nor do i care about his blog on freenode and i have no desire to find out more about him, or any other freenode employee at present. Thankyou, Nikolai
  2. Hello, i'm new (i just joined today) but i was working for a while in a Red Alert 1 mod, but i am stuck, because i have some doubts about wether units can be replicated (or not) Well, my mod has some great ideas, more than anything my mod will focus in combat between vehicles now the allies could build the airfield too (they have the A-10 from CnC TD), a lot more ideas. So if anyone wants to help me making this mod just reply.

    video options help

    I have to reinstall cncnet every time I restart computer. if I don't after restart, with my current cncnet options, when the game loads in skirm or online, it will auto flash back to my desktop. The only way I can fix that is to uncheck "stretch to custom res 640x480." but if I do that, then the mouse "floats" at warp speed. the only way ive been able to get it to correct is to delete cncnet folder, restart, then reinstall. Any thoughts about cncnet video options, or maybe video card/display options? I feel like ive tried every combination /variation to just play 640x480 with a normal mouse feel. Thanks.. maybe it's easier to back/forth through email with screenshots?

  5. I'm on Win 10, no error messages, just complete freeze, only mouse head moves on screen, but hovering over units does not highlight their green health bars or anything.
  6. Hi. I've spent the last two days making a custom map, and every time that my friend and I try to launch it, both of our clients crash immediately upon game start, and we both get the same error: "Red Alert crashed at address 0x004fef6c. Ask in the CnCNet forums for more information." So... here I am in the CnCNet forums asking for more information. lol. I have no idea what this error means, or how to decode it, and I have no idea what I might have done wrong in the map to botch it so hard. lol. I did absolutely zero trigger or AI meddling. I just started a new blank map, painted it up, reset the starting locations, and saved it. Is there something I'm missing? I've tried googling the error, and I've found absolutely nothing. I've also tried googling things like "Red Alert custom map keeps crashing", and that's also begotten no results. Everything's all for RA 2 or 3. Can someone please shed some light on the situation?
  7. Hey all together Since one day (I didnt change anything) I see just a black screen after starting a game (multiplayer) in "red alert". I can here the music and can choose something by using the keyboard. I have installed the current ios version and no other updates are available. How can I fix the problem? Thanks in advance
  8. I am trying to create a mission like map but when I test it in a skirmish battle all of the walls that I have placed down have disappeared. Getting them from Base or Structures doesn't make a difference and setting their owner to Neutral doesn't work either.
  9. Hi all, I have downloaded CnC gold and Red alert 1 from cnc net, both work online and skirmish perfectly yet when i install and to try to run the main campaign, it says couldn't launch main executable, am hugely gutted as an avid fan of the series, any suggestions please ? UPDATE I deleted ddraw.dll in the properties folder, campaign works but lags then when i alt tab it out the window is stuck and i can hear the game just no picture proper annoying now ! Running this on HP Pavilion notebook 2GB RAM 30GB HDD HD graphics internal up to 1028MB Windows 8.1 cheers
  10. Hello The question is simple: Is there any possible way to make that a Badger Bomber drops a crate? All sugestions are welcome TY
  11. Hey guys I took some time to make/remake the TD beta bridge as a functioning bridge. I felt I had to change the colour because I'm using it in my OpenRA mod & the terrain is in RA palette. (The RA palette misses a lot of cool blue / greys so the bridge ends up looking purple) I chose light grey to try & resemble concrete, like overpass bridges. I guess it would need some hex work to function properly in RA, if it is even possible to add. Let me know what you think! Heres the original for comparison; note the blue colour (I have to credit Messiah for an old static shp of the bridge I found as a starting point )
  13. I've been trying to install CnCNet on ReactOS. My first issue is this text, which is terrible, but I can live with this. But that's not why I'm here(image below.) The reason why I am here is because of a supposed driver. Attempting to join CNCNet, try a skirmish or do a LAN, bring up this screen. I'd like to know what driver this is trying to install. I noted that Windows XP and 2003 also bring up this message but it automatically installs the driver without me even touching anything(which means that this message makes sense on ReactOS as it's pretty much 2003 and XP compatible.) Anyone know where this driver might be?

    red alert cncnet

    I'm trying run red alert CnCnet but I cant. Problem... an error accurred , pleas give the log file Funkyfr3sh. configuration system faild to initialize. What can i do?
  15. 1080p and higher monitors are becoming really common, and it's clear RA1 and C&C 95 don't scale well to these resolutions. What is currently the optimal way to upscale these games and get the sharpest result for 1080p and 4k? Is it possible to use scalers similar to the ones for dosbox?
  16. Red alert is a great game, and I love playing it. After playing this game for years I realise that there is a lot that can be improved. I love the core gameplay and strategies the game offers now, and this is something that can't and should never be changed. What could be improved is all the underpowered and useless units that are unviable to use, even during casual matches. I'm going to attempt to work on a "balancing" patch to make all ingame units usefull in some way. I know changing the game in any way is a really sensitive subject. I consider this a personal patch where i just share the progress for who might be interested. I understand there are many purists who like the game as it is, and thats fine. The main aims for this project are as follows: 1. Preserve current build orders and strategies. 2. Buff underpowered units/buildings to make them usefull, no nerfing. 3. Tweak the tech tree for easier acces to unused units 4. Make it viable to use non tank build orders 5. Restore balance between allied and soviet side 6. Implement hidden AM units in a way that compliments the tech trees 7. Correct minor stat inconsistencies (example: light tank has lower view range than medium tank) 8. Remove useless stuff that can't be fixed (example: sandbags) Progress: Phase 1: Tweak tech tree > in progress Phase 2: Tweak units > not started Phase 3: Playtesting (map mod) > not started Phase 4: Evaluate changes, back to earlier phase if needed. > not started Phase 5: Publish patch (possibly as a full package including the game) > not started
  17. I'm considering a mod project for ra1 and am looking for a base version to start with. What version am I allowed to use? I dont want to risk offending people by using their work, so starting this topic to be sure. If possible I would like to have a version that includes fixes so it works on windows 10
  18. This game crashed and i lost points against (robskate-DT)...that game must be deleted and get my 60 points back,robskate agree with that you can ask him he will say same thing,,, https://ladder.cncnet.org/ladder/4-2018/ra/games/22678
  19. Hello guys, I am very happy to see that there are still people who playing this fabulous game and make it possible in HD and on the actual computers. I downloaded the game but i have only vanila version, is it posible to get M.A.D and mission taiga version too? I like the new units :)))
  20. My opponent resigned. He has no units etc, but won't leave the game. We're still in game. It's a V3 game. You may check the ladder. Thanks! Edit: His nickname is "hidernoob".
  21. Hello everybody. First of all thanks a lot to all the people that made CnC Net possible! Im working in a multiplayer map for RA1 with a bit of spice on it... but i need some help on developing. The concept is as follow: Game starts on Tech Level 1, a clock is running down, when it reaches zero Tech Level changes to 2 and another clock starts, when this new clock reaches zero Tech Level goes 3, an so on untill Tech Level 10. Ive made my way for the clocks and fancy things like tutorial message of actual Tech Level plus the speech "New Construction Options", but im stuck in the changing of tech levels. Does a global variable can be used as a Prerequisite for buildings/units in the rules.ini? If thats the case then it would be very easy to achive... Or anybody has a better idea/sugestion in how to achieve this? Early thanks to anybody that has watched this question. If any questions on how im making the clocks and stuff just ask.
  22. Hey, I got a question; how do you change a unit's display name? I know it can be done, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how. To clarify, I don't want to create a new unit necessarily, I just want to rename an existing unit. Like, you know how in the first Fall of Greece mission, you're controlling Stavros and if you actually let the cursor linger on him for a little bit, you actually get a little tab reading "Stavros". That's what I want to do. Anyone have any idea how it's done?
  23. Hi all. I accidentally created multiple usernames in my ladder account. Is there a way to delete those usernames? Or is there an option to change my ladder account's email address? Can someone help? Thanks.
  24. I didn't know where to post it since it actually works with all classic westwood games (td, ra, ts, ra2, dune 2000). DDrawCompat is a DirectDraw proxy dll just like cnc-ddraw, ts-ddraw, ddwrapper. It improved the performance dramatically for everyone who tested it yet (went over 14000 FPS in ra1 for me!!). It also solves the alt+tab bugs on windows 8/10 (and the menu bugs too). It should work fine on Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10. (We had no one to try Vista yet) Even if you don't have any issues with the games, it's still worth a try. It prevents slow downs in big battles online or even in skirmish with AI. Give it a try: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases Note: use the latest experimental release
  25. I have just downloaded C&C Red Alert from CnCNet\RedAlert1_Online and there are no maps from the Counter Strike expansion and only one map from Aftermath expansion. I am in the skirmish option from the launcher. Please help as I would love to play these maps.
