    music bug

    okay so when i try loading a game in single player the music cuts out and i need to either load the game a second time (which brings the music back) or keep selecting a song every time i load. any fix for this? downloaded from cncnet using a full web install btw.
  2. Hi all, just started playing Command and Conquer and Red ALert 1 after a long break !! I have untill now just been playing the standard missions but have come across some videos with multiplayer and sinlge player skirmishes etc. Would some one be able to point me in the right directions a s to how i get hold of these maps/missions> is it as simple as a download? Currently i am playing via steam (or at least i think i am as that is where i downloaded the game), does this matter with regard to downloading new missions. I did originally try to download the game directly but my computer didnt like it and tried all fixes but to no avail. Via steam it worked straight away. Thanks in advance
  3. Particularly the ones that say "Installing" and "Upgrade/Installation Complete" for RA1. I know the C&C1 EVA has similar recorded files which I have used in the past. I know the RA versions exist as you can hear some of the voice clips in the Radio 2 Remix. I scoured the .MIX files but I could not find them unlike the C&C1 counterparts which were easily found. If anyone has files of the individual voice clips in question, I would greatly appreciate them. My other option would be to try isolating the voice clips from the song using audio editing software which IME has had mixed results when it comes to preserving the quality.
  4. Hello people I recently found my physical copy of "Command & Conquer the first decade" in the blue box and i would replay all the campaigns and possibly some multiplayer again for Tiberiun sun and up since i already own the C&C remaster on steam Last time i played it must have been 5 years ago and i had to install an unofficial patch to get it to work on Windows 7 So my question is: Is there 1 patch that makes it all work flawlessly (Im on windows 10) or do i have to manually install a patch for each game ? https://cncnet.org/command-and-conquer#download https://cncnet.org/red-alert-2#download And so forth And do theese patches work for singleplayer / skirmish aswell or is it stritcly multiplayer ?? Im kinda confused And seeing as im mostly here for the Red Alert 2 games are there any good mods you guys would recommend before i start playing the campaigns again ? I play alot of Brood War custom campaigns aswell, is there somewhere where i can find a list of all avaivable campaigns I was thinking something in the line of this Brood War spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1l_ink-CKwo92syCxJmivfh7zeMZu4U0p_q5Ra7HTF4U/edit#gid=0 Ty for you time Cheers
  5. How to fix this, guys? After I updated the app, I can't launch the CNC Client!

    Autoclickers

    Notto seem like a sore loser; but there are one or two players who typically surpas units built by 50% more than any other player. Does the system check for an autoclicker? I do not mind playing a fair game , but when someone consistantly creates units at such a markedly high rate over all other players; I have to think he is either an octopus or cheating. Ther has to be some threshold for codence that would suggest an autoclicker.
  7. Added some new features such as saving position of the window and alt+enter to switch between window/full screen. https://github.com/CnCNet/cnc-ddraw/releases Red Alert Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/ra-config.7z C&C95 Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/td-config.7z Download and extract the files into your game folder. (You may not want to extract ddraw.ini, otherwise you may override your settings)
  8. I don't want my old nicknames to show. I deleted the game and the cnc files in "C" and reinstalled the game, but still my problem is not solved. What should I do.?
  9. EDIT: The new mod profile is live! So long time no chat. lol 😀 Since finally completing the story campaigns for Tiberian Dawn Redux a couple years ago I have been repeatedly approached about carrying the mod over into the RA universe with a spinoff. I haven't decided if it will be a mini-mod type add-on built into TDR (think GDI/Nod vs. Allies/Soviets in skirmish) or a standalone project built off of the renovated C&C Generals SAGE engine TDR is now using. I know a lot of the assets and coding between the original TD and RA games is nearly the same so it would streamline development quite a bit. (looking into the original game files I noticed a lot of the art and audio assets are using the same filenames to confirm this) The biggest hurdles I have will be making a decent naval system, designing, coding, and animating attack dogs and then the Chronosphere stuff. I may also (as I did with TDR) consolidate the unit and structure tech tree and add unit upgrades and special abilities. (e.g. Engineers doubled as Mechanics and APC's doubled as Medics) So who wants Red Alert Redux? And I will say it will not be a 1:1 remake. As I did with TDR I aim to keep as much of the original wacky tech and atmosphere Westwood developed for TD and RA but also have a more realistic spin on it in both appearance and gameplay. I have been considering consulting with the former Cold War Crisis Mod Team and the guys behind Red Alert: A Path Beyond.
  10. Air is over powered in red alert 1 also anti air is under powered in red alert 1 This has been a problem for long time but has become more clear too me over time when i changed from being a base builder too a tanker In the game red alert 1 we have many maps and 2 main play styles Tanker players and base builder players i get straight to the point and explain everything air units are by far the best in the game also there the most hated least fun and only take away good games from players air only good for trolling or for being a one trick pony or cheap wins air dumb the game down a lot why is air so over what makes it this way its because unlike any other units in the game air can go any where on the map fly over any defense and kill any building but army stuck on the land and navy stuck in sea the next thing i need point out is only few units can even defend them self vs air ok sure what about run away wait cant to that air faster too how about kill mcv power it only air air units kill a mcv no matter where it is on the map no range limit too air that is are strongest building a tanker player cant rebuild mcv after this ive been on both sides of this many 2v2 games one sided because cheap win or get teamed up on by 2 pros when am trying do right thing but lose because ally trolls 3v3 games often turn into 2v3 games for long time because this too base builders even they are not safe a few good hotkeys with air and bookmarks and spam that build button u can take out up too 10 mcv at a time full base gets leveled ever 3-5 mins even with huge anti air all one type building dead mcv or ore ref most the time i played few games op air players they built about 300-400 places in 30-50 mins i looked at stats after game also it didnt matter how many sams rocket soldiers i made waves of air can attack with out it mattering how many die they just build x2 more most game aways turn into this mcv death rebuild build sams rocket soldiers war tank players out right ban air from there games but air also just op on all maps also tanker base builds dont want because of air i was used not mind till too many players used air and how op it is but the fact that too many players spam air attack become stuck at this level of play poor play style don't learn better skills u can learn play the game any way u want in your own room this post not shame air players say there not pro there some good players that only play custom mod maps that got good at this am even ok with rigged games as long as the players are open with what they are doing do so in the room they are the host off just playing for fun of it I want some kind of fix too this air problem The best fix i think is add a button so players can just turn air on or off in room host settings that way the mod maps in red alert 1 that need stats too stay the same will not get messed up by any fix is made another fix just weaken air [by a lot] and make stronger anti air stronger [by a lot too as well also units need be able fight back vs air not be helpless} maybe build build limit be good i also think mod maps hurt less by this kinda change if it was too happen or even range limit but a air on or off button be by far the best for everone not doing anything about this me anti air players suffer in a game they don't like and just put up with and the players who aways use air on them i just want everone be able play the game how they want too it be so much easyer on everone if we can make it so both sides can have the game how they want it too be played in there rooms best done with settings just asking for no air players don't listen also no way stop them other then ban them from room after game players who like air should play with others who like air players who hate air like me should play others of are own kind be able have a clean air free game when is asked of the players guys be friendly its ok like air games just dont force it on me just because i don't like air u might or might not like air don't stop us from being friends everone has there point of view
  11. Sometimes on Cncnet lobby the Quickmatch room shows 1/2 when it's 0 in the ladder client. Sometimes players seem to unready when they are actually ready. (Unconfirmed) Sometimes takes long time to connect and connection fails, repeatedly. Sometimes (less often) client randomly freezes, crashes, needing to restart or logoff or reinstall to get back in queue. Sometimes client has higher chance to work when not logged in to Cncnet lobby. Others have also recently noticed ladder acting weirdly like pre-disconnecting games and ladder page giving connection errors. Sometimes client works great without problem. Ladder when it works is great avenue for 1v1 and potentially helps the dedicated playerbase grow. Here's hoping that things can be tweaked and issues solved or improved. Whoever develops the ladder thank you for efforts!
  12. Hey guys as I mentioned about a month ago in another post I recently started RA Redux. Using XCC Mixer (yes I got the latest version) I am having issues with the campaign cutscene videos getting corrupted or being a colorful mess during playback. I am extracting as the recommended .avi as I did for the TD videos. Also I cannot seem to find the map layouts for the RA missions and whatnot. I know in the past I used Nyerguds database as a reference which proved invaluable for finishing the TD Redux campaigns. Example: https://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/cncstuff/mappics/n64-testmaps/sct15ea-nomap.png Is there a section for Red Alert that I am somehow missing?

  14. Hi Guys, A befriended-long time RA1-player names WorstPlayer is banned all of a sudden. I've checked the logs but I can't find any reason why he could have been banned. I asked NateDiaz for intel, he checked it and tried to unban but that didn't work. I sent Funky a private message via Discord but no response, so that's why I'm posting this topic. Could someone please unban him? Or if he's banned could you explain to me why, so I can tell him because he has no idea why he has been banned. The Scunthorpe-ban is only for 5 mins, but it seems he's banned for a longer period. He's a decent player, he doesn't use foul language, so please let me know. <WoRsTpLaYeR> SCUNTHORPE FC FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. In Red Alert 1 since there are so few players already, there is a big issue of players camping the top 3 spots and then not playing at all which effectively causes the ladder to be unplayable on certain days. I think a decay system should be an option for each ladder to be enabled and mitigate this issue. Decay settings would be a signifcant improvement, but the grace period and amount of decay should be customizable like the other settings. - add ability to set grace period - ability to set the % of total points lost per day after grace period is up - ability to set the lowest rank to be affected and/or make it so points cannot decay lower than (ie. 5th rank's points) - display to players if they are going to decay and how long until they do Thank you for creating the quickmatch ladder. I hope the devs all enjoyed doing so. Cheers
  17. Hi again, I´m trying to build a multiplayer team misson map. So I set IsCoopMode=Yes. Do I habe the possebility to fix the coutry for the players? So the player can´t choos soviet or allied? Thanks for help
  18. Hello, First time using cncnet, I keep getting kicked whenever I join a game in the lobby but don't understand why. Sometimes I get a message saying no connection or problem with connection from one of the players. Or ping will come up with my name as NA. When I join a game in the lobby there's usually no green "I'm ready" button in the bottom left, it's only there if I try host a game (but then when I click it says waiting to connect, please try again in a few seconds or something). Can anyone advise, or help troubleshoot? I'm guessing there's a connection issue my end but dont know how to diagnose. (I have managed somehow to play two online games, no idea why it worked then but not most of the time).

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.
  20. Does anyone know how to preview RA1 maps into picture files???
  21. Hallo again, I tried to create a mulitplayer coopmode map. But what ever I do, I cant make the AI build aircrafts via teamtypes an triggers. So they wont attack with any aircraft. Is ther a possebility to make them build and attack? second question. If I define a building in the [base] section every AI is going to build it. Is there a way to soecify only on AI to build it? Player= is already set. Thanks for help
  22. *NEW VERSION HAS RELEASED 9th of June 2021* Hi guys! Download here (new version V0.99.9.2, 9th of June 2021): https://www.dropbox.com/s/8o4atgwe9r3fax5/CCRDX-2021.rar?dl=0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Im currently working on a mod that takes us on a different timeline of Tiberium universe. GDI and Nod are still fight against each other, but both sides has a completely different arsenal than C&C95 had. In this timeline, The First Tiberian War were not fought on 1995, it only takes place on somewhere between 2015-2020's. Since the global economic disaster that appeared on 2008, Nod has grown up and gathered up massive army. Tiberium meteor was also hit on earth at 2007 and has terraformed earth on a something which is not on this reality. There will be no mercy... My goal is to release the first version during this year. Currently both GDI and Nod are ready (shp's and voices). There are several multiplayer maps and hopefully i can convert several CS/Aftermath missions for compatible into this mod. Thanks to Allen262 great Red Dawn mod, i was able to use many shp's from there. Also several shp's were loaded from sprites.openra.net and ra.afraid.org. Few of the shp's are made by me (partially).
  23. To funky. https://ladder.cncnet.org/ladder/6-2021/ra/games/332505 I played the above game this morning. I was sov, he was allied. At ebd of the game , Im pretty sure I won and about to finish the game. He suddenly disconnected but the ladder said somehow draw. It's very serious issue that some guys know HOW TO FOOL THE LADDER AND MAKE THE SCORE NO COUNT. I have a question, can funky see the detail starts of the game which shows nothing but "shake hands" on the ladder results page. If so plz make my match result proper score. thx. Oh I forgot to mention this, this is not the 1st time I got cheated like this. Crush often did this.
  24. I'm trying to play ra1 online. I click on the "Play Online" which attempts to launch cncnet5.exe but it doesn't launch.
