    Joining the team?

    Hi I am a progamming hobbyist and a Command and Conquer enthusiast. I was wondering how I might go about joining the team of keeping this game and community vibrant. I would be most interested in working on things related to Red Alert and also the Game client
  2. Hi, In playing through the NOD missions for C&C95, I do not have any way to build SAM sites to accomplish the mission (roughly the fifth mission or so). I can take over or destroy all enemies/buildings, but then nothing happens, presumably because I haven't built the SAM sites. Is this a glitch? Can someone help out here? Thanks
  3. Would you add cash to a monthly ladder pool? It could be as low as a $2 entry to be able to compete, top 10 to compete for top 3 prizes?
  4. So i bought the command and conquer ultimate collection and installed generals and zero hour and everytime i play zero hour it just randomly crashes and exit's and gives me a you encountered a serious error which ive seen it a typical thing but nothing ive tried has fixed it and it just keeps crashing randomly. Any other suggestions? Ive tried uninstall and reinstall, options.ini,windows service pack3, run as admin, direct x install. What else can I try to fix it for windows 10?
  5. I think the forum sections are divided placed in a weird and confusing manner. The Communication Center & Repair Bay looks to me like a feedback category for CnCNet and should have the section CnCNet Discussion under it. The section In the Community looks to me like a general game universe thing that should be under The Power Plant. The thread "Welcome, New Members!" should be moved to somewhere in the Communication Center & Repair Bay category, tentatively to the moved CnCNet Discussion section, as it revolves about CnCNet rather than the C&C world in general. Many people seem to have missed it over the years, and I was surprised to find it under General Discussion. There are several threads in the General Discussion section that I think should be moved to other sections. Actually most of them on the first page I think. People ask about CnCNet or troubleshooting about a specific game. The thread "CNCNetOfficial YouTube Video Submission Thread" should be moved to either CnCNet Discussion or In the Community. Info about the Mac version's whereabouts is perhaps better suited in CnCNet News, as it wasn't really inviting to a discussion. I first looked there, and it took me a while before I found the infothread. In any case it should be under the Comm Center category, which it will be if that section gets moved as I suggest. Obviously I'm not the only one thinking like this as evident by these threads https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/10569-mac-use/ https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/10573-mac-version/ https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/10571-mac-use/ https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/10373-red-alert-1-on-mac/?tab=comments#comment-77737 In general there are a lot of threads in unintuitive places. Overall I think it's a bit of a mess. Why does this CnCNet Discussion section have a tag selector for new thread, but not General Discussion? It doesn't make sense to me. If anything should the latter definitely have it, but not necessarily the former as that is about CnCNet and not really the games as such. Maybe I'm thinking that wrong, but I think at least that the tag addition should be available in the General Discussion as an option. Member rankings/titles are underutilized. There seems to be only 3. How about having some more? Or can the forum not handle more than 3? This is not important of course, but it's a fun addition to any forum in my opinion I'm a bit fond of technicians, so how about raising the limit to Rifleman to 20 posts? Or is that perhaps linked to the approving requirement for posts? If it works with Technician to 19, then have Rifleman to 59 and then Grenadier to 99, Rocket Soldier to 199, Engineer to 299 and finally Medic starting at 300 and being the top if we're to keep it at infantry units. Considering the low average activity of regular member I think it's not necessary for more, but there can be of course. Concurrently I think the number of posts shouldn't be displayed alongside every forum post, only in the profile. That makes title more useful and exciting and creates a slightly bigger urge for people to check out ones profile. Also I haven't found any rules. Edit: Oh, actually I just found it when I edited this post for other things. Well, that should definitely not be in its own section "hidden" under Support. Move it to CnCNet Discussion or CnCNet News. And you should consider adding a direct link to it at the top or bottom of the web page. And the forum clock runs about 7½ minutes late. Thank you for all your hard work on this
  6. Hi, I was trying to fix a problem that cause my game frequently freeze after a few second of game starting. I searched many similar problems but there is nothing solve my problem. I tried almost every thing that I can find in the game folder. My PC is win10+amd ryzen 5+ GTX1080ti. Finally I found the problem is the "VideoBackBuffer" option in redalert.ini. When I set VideoBackBuffer=No my game start to work properly. There should be something wrong when it is Yes by default. This really troubled me many days since this option is not in any game config UI. Hopefully this will help the others that have same problem and this could be fixed soon.
  7. Okay so for some very strange reason I have some trees and ore drills I'm unable to delete. When I first saved the map and loaded up they were not present until the game loaded but now they are. And the only way to ever supposedly delete them is to to put ton of stuff on them and then start deleting objects. Eventually I'm able to remove a few then some of the new ones I placed are also undeleteable. What is causing this? Is there another map editor I should be using other than final alert? I know final alert is pretty damn old like the existing games but people do make new and better tools over the years and im surprised nobody ever made something better or if they did I haven't found it.
  8. Hello again! I have been working on salvaging old computers from my closet so my crew can enjoy some C&C95 together. On my old GatewayCx210x, windows XP Sp3, machine, C&C95 Gold works great until I shutdown or restart the computer. Then, after I do a shutdown/restart, I return to open game and nothing happens. The game is in the task manager process list, but never actually opens anything at all. To fix this, I have to uninstall/reinstall C&C95 Gold. I used Nyerguds installer from http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/cnc95upd/cc95p106/ Is this an installer problem and should I try a different installer? What should I do? This is just an annoyance. Besides this, the game continues to process great without any weirdness. Thanks for any help, appreciate it.

  10. This is a command line tool that allows you to add or subtract two INI files. This probably sounds strange, but it's really handy. When you subtract two INI files, the result is the difference between them. When you add two INI files, the result is the combination of them. Note that you can turn/ copy paste any file (map,mpr etc) into an INI file. As a map maker you easily use the same mods you've used before, so what I've done is I saved every mod that i used a lot, in a seperate INI file. So that you can use the software called XCC_INI_CLT, to easily add it in your map. Just so there is no hassle of listing the mod in its appropriate list, like every new building needs to be listed under [BuildingTypes], same for new/cloned infantry, vehicles, warheads, animations, and triggers, actions, events, tags, teamtypes and so on... Its just so much easier to use this software whenever you have an idea for a map, and even add or subtract the basic things like Auto-Ally, Free Radar, Reveal map, Giants mods etc. This trick is very do-able, even if you're a modding noob, i recommend you to still give this a shot Note: This tutorial explains an alternate way to add mods to your map, no coding/modding skill required. The reason I don't wanna tag this topic is because the software can be used for all games that have editable INI files. So if you're a mod maker you can do the same thing and make separate files for your mods, and use this software to add/subtract them. Mods i added in this topic however, are for CnCnet Tiberian Sun. Maker of XCC Utilities, Olaf van der Spek created this around 2002 i believe, and its still handy to this day. Here is the original tutorial: https://xhp.xwis.net/utilities/XCC_INI_CLT.html Original download: https://xhp.xwis.net/utilities/XCC_INI_CLT.zip HOW IT WORKS First a simple explanation how it works. If you want to add mods in your map, first copy paste the content (all the codes) of your map, into an INI file. (CTRL A= select all, CTRL+C=Copy, CTRL+V is Paste) You can use an empty INI file i included in the pack. Give it a short name. This little program needs to be in the same folder with the ini files that you like to add or subtract, so make sure the software file is in there then you need to open command prompt. You can do that with your windows search, or in Start> Programs, or to press Windows Button + R, type: CMD and press enter. Now you gotta navigate to the folder with the software and ini files in them. To do that, Type CD and follow with the folder path (just copy and paste), and press enter so for example like this: Now, like in the original tutorial, type the software name XCC_INI_CLT follow with the files you want to add. It works like this: File1 + File2 = File3, so the File 3 will be both files added up. So how i like to do it is mymap.ini + autoally.ini mymap.ini This way the mapfile will have the autoally added. So you type: XCC_INI_CLT mymap.ini + autoally.ini mymap.ini and press enter, and add all the mods you want, like this: Now just Copy the content of the INI file, back into the map file, and you got all the mods in your map I've used this first for bigger mod projects and merging art.ini and rules.ini, but i figured since there are so many mods, we can use it this way as well. I will keep adding mods to this topic, Since we have fan made mods uploaded to the cncnet client in TS, this will be a great way to add them to your map. I have not organized all the mods I have in the attached rar file, they are very messy right now. I will update and edit these files as i gather more stuff. Mod inis.rar
  11. My apologies if I am asking in the wrong forum. So, since the last update of CNCnet for Yuri's revenge, the .exe files keep getting self deleted. is there a way to fix this? anybody else is experiencing this issue?
  12. Hello, I am returning player for Red Alert 2, one of my favorite game from early 2000. I am ready to feel and experience the outstanding story this game has to offer, once again. The problem was am no longer use to playing less than 30fps. I was able to make the game run at 60fps and fast game speed through this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSX97YlzGRY&t=416s but it only run on "SKIRMISH" mode. not on campaign. When I play the campaign the game is really slow and I'm only getting 49-55fps. Could someone please help me? I would really like to play this game again and I feel very nostalgic about it. System: Window 10 64 bit i9 9900k EVGA GTX 1080 TI Thank you!
  13. Afternoon, When I stream live to twitch via Xsplit gamecaster, I need to fully restart my computer once 1 game ends in order for CNCNET to remain active. Otherwise it shuts down and when I go into the app again, it goes to the updates downloading message and closes down. Do you know what could be causing this? Dan
  14. I am making a mod for Tiberian Sun, but I need a file which I cannot find in my directory. I have no GameOptions.ini, and cannot find a way to add more factions to the game, so does CnCNet come with the file? Or do I have to download it elsewhere?
  15. TUNNEL SERVER STATUS INFORMATION Below is list of servers updated to show the reasons why your server has been turned offline. Please rectify and let us know in a new topic that your server is now working.
  16. I have a problem with something in CnCNet and is because I already installed a map in the custom folder of red alert 2 and I can play it, but for some reason I can't playing online, it appears in the select map screen and all is good but when it's loading just my team loads but other players don't. I don't know what to do. Also I made custom rules for playing different, for example I change ranges of fire for some units etc, as I said before I can play but the others cannot, How can they play my maps with my rules online?
  17. Hi, I've got 2 sons totally crazy about R&A (as i was a long time ago 😀). I've recently bought on steam a 2nd copy of RA3 to play on another computer. I've succeeded in playing lan with hitachi but they would like to do the campaigns together. Is it possible ? 2 computers on a same internet connection (WI/FI for one and RJ45 for the other) Windows 8 and Windows 7. For instance, both games are installed in steam repertories (on the Windows 8 one, it tooks me much pain 🤔to run RA3..). Thanks for any help, have a nice day. Arnaud.
  18. I just discovered this site and it appears to be the only trustworthy place to download the CNC freeware games these days. The games themselves download fine, but I'm trying to download the Tiberian Sun movie file and it either runs extremely slow or times out, at which point the download has to restart despite the progress it's made. Torrents are a great answer to these problems. Even if it runs slow due to few seeds (or those seeds not wanting to give all of their bandwidth to the torrent), it can run for as long as it needs to without having to restart.
  19. Hello again, I had gotten the collection from Origin, and while playing Red Alert, I had a issue where I'm in a middle of a mission and the game crashes to the point it makes the pc to reboot, is there something I can do to fix this?

    C&C Games?

    Hello, Sorry to bother you guys about this, I had seen the 1st game of C&C on here, I was wanting to find out, did EA release the old games out free or these are all patches for the games? I been questioning about if I should go buy the Ultimate collection but been looking at this site, I wanted to ask 1st before doing anything.
  21. So a few important changes to note. Players do not "lose" points if they have lost a game, they simply gain a smaller margin of points. The theory is to eliminate the ethic of bad sportsmanship and rage quitting when losing. If you lose you're guaranteed some points. Ladder design will always be evolving and remember everything you see is never finished. However we're scrapping the traditional table view you see so much in ladders. Reason being it's too common, it's not inline with what we do here. We're pushing boundaries and want a somewhat unique experience to competitive C&C to entice as many players as possible. Additional game stats introduced Including and not limited to: Player Colour Player Faction Player Credits Player Infantry, Planes, Buildings Left Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Bought Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Destroyed Current Game information stored: Superweapons Crates Credits Duration MCV Redeploy Build of Ally Conyard Average FPS Reconnection Error Flag Unit Count Start Players in Game Map / Scenario Game Scenarios The different game scenarios of win/lose will require testing again to see if the code implemented catches disconnects, quitting etc. For the additional game stats we've now got I would like to give a huge thanks to tomsons26 and dkeeton for helping me with the parsing and testing. What's next? Re-testing of the game scenarios , keep playing games, report anything unusual. A look into how we can handle Reconnection errors. On going UI changes and ladder code. On another note thank you all for your testing so far and for being patient.

    C&C

    Hi, just down-loaded the Command & Conquer game, looks good when opening, the old skool music starts yet when trying to play/start a new skirmish it will not allow me to proceed. I'm running a windows 10, latest update, plenty of ram. Anything I am missing?
  23. Hi, My Client sounds stopped working , i.e the beep when joining games and when changing settings or getting a personal message, Any suggestions as to how to fix please? Thanks.
  24. I recently updated my MacBook to macOS Mojave, and after the update the CNCNet application simply doesn't work. I've been trying for days now, but to no avail. I even tried to uninstall and install the application again, but nothing works. Is this something that you are working on? I really want to play some good old Tiberian Sun Also; are there anybody else with the same problem out there?
  25. I only got to play C&C Sole Survivor a little while before the servers went down and didn't get to try all its modes but it was pretty cool having every unit controlled by a player. Plus some of the more elusive units made an appearance. Isn't it the only game where you could play as a Viceroid, or at least the classic style Viceroid? Hopefully it wouldn't be too big a project to build it into the remasters.
