The new update the game has made this game a far worse game for me I have been doing much Research of my own hours of testing This is a complex topic that have too sides i understand this nicknamed Steroid Tanking by crush, many alternative ways of tanking turned out too exist the known ways of tanking are q tanking gq tanking & sgq tanking the crush video link cheat methed to used here ,,,> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7Qhj9Nqtx8 alt & g & q tanking worked before the update for some pros it no longer works I don^t fully understand the buttons used or the timing needed also gq & q together sametime I used myself mostly in mini q master games vs others pros noobs & the ai no longer works too understand what this is dual q & gq marge into one gq-ing your tanks & q-ing your tanks at the same time has the traits of both q & gq is powerfull tanks auto fire like in gq but by also q-ing u also fire kill more tanks by aiming your self as well The topic cheating come up on Steroid Tanking yes many players used the hotkey editer too bind keys into one button yes I agree this is cheating but Steroid Tanking its self is not cheating and should not be considerd as cheating it was used be possable hold down 2 buttons on your keyboard same time tank this way do the same kind of thing without cheating of any kind at least with my way of using it Steroid Tanking was a closely guarded secret by many pros who used it myself too i didn't know other pros had there own ways of using it but also I know there was lot more out there then what meets the eye In a black & white world of q gq & sgq its turns out colour existed too i wish only too preserve game mechanics from being lost forever I have many online friends on cncnet i don't want lose my friend ships and the game used to the best game in the world to me there never be a game as this one was however am looking for a new game get into now. red alert 1 was good in its day i don't want to cause a butterfly effect but i know philly retire too if I do a lot players be upset too petersky cloutiers return not go well 13clan members be upset many others friends of mine too but the fun in the game is gone for me becouse this patch and update has set the game on the wrong path what am asking for is fix the patch so hotkeys work without using cheats too gq & q same time is a tanking style where tanks can be in a q & gq state at the same time and i wish safe as many other ways of tanking as possable but i dont want players using key binding as this is cheating but there is a differences holding down many buttons with fingers on keyboard and using the hotkey editer to do this The level of play in red alert 1 has gone up over the years for many years players didn't know gq existed only use q ehy used gq as well he know of it before many others its what made him so powerful in tank batties sadly my understanding of far past is limited but I been here for a long time about 7 years online back then updates didn't hurt the game in any way i know of at least ehy was skilled at making super tesla too ended up getting a update that got super tesla added bug fix settings i think another fix is just add Steroid Tanking as a setting players room host can turn on or off same way super tesla works it make both sides happy red alert 1 is a very unique game hotkeys & base walking being able too q & gq simultaneously 1 group of tanks is what made game fun for me my decision too retire or not is not set in stone all options are on the table its not too late yet its depends on if this update patch gets fixed or not and the responses too my posts

  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  7. Does anyone know how to preview RA1 maps into picture files???
  8. 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
  9. *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).
  10. 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.

The event viewer shows the following 2 events when i try to run the game Event 1 Level: Error Message: .NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.9151 - Source: .NET Runtime ^^^ Not a very informative error Event 2 level: Information source: windows error reporting Message: Fault bucket 1500961723287199156, type 5 Event Name: CLR20r3 Response: Not available Cab Id: 0 Problem signature: P1: cncnet5.exe P2: 5.0.0.0 P3: 5f4f87ab P4: cncnet5 P5: 5.0.0.0 P6: 5f4f87ab P7: 2 P8: 61 P9: FatalError P10: To be fair, I'm a developer and i've got a .net development environment going (this is my work laptop as well) with every possible .net version for various reasons.

    Error

    When someone starts a game my game crashed and it says ''Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation'' Please help.
  14. Hello guys! I had a weird a weird issue. I'm currently developing a next version of CCRDX mod and i modified one civilian slot (C3 known as Shelly) as a buildable unit. As rules.ini i turned a value NamedCivilians=yes and with Ingame Strings editor i edited conquer.eng Shelly's name as a suitable unit name. Let's just say that Shelly is no more Shelly but her in-game name is Sniper. A few days ago i was testing a mission which had a Desert theater and i found out that if NamedCivilians is turned on, some of the civilian building names are really weird, such as "are you propse a draw?", etc. -> clicking on that building crashes game immediately. -> But when namedcivilians is turned off, the building name is "civilian building" and game won't crash anymore. -> But if NamedCivilians is turned off, my C3 slot unit name is "Civilian" and i can't edit the name. This is a quality issue. Any ideas how to fix this issue? My goal: I want that each civilian building has a name "civilian building" and game won't crash and also i want that my C3 unit in-game name is Sniper. What i know is that editing rules.ini putting the name tag on a certain building can fix this, but it can also cause many crashes making my mod non-playable. I also tried to make a list of every Civilian building, put the Name=Civilian Building on it and insert these values under certain mission file, this worked 50-50. I'm using Iran's PortableRA
  15. https://youtu.be/2xXnAxEfZZI in this video there is my problem: the problem is not in the internet ... this problem gets with me. if i turn on the device and enter the game quickly, i get this problem this problem occurs to me for a long time ... i have been using a laptop and this problem occurs to me, and now i am using a desktop machine which is much more powerful than my previous laptop and so far this problem occurs to me. thank you for your cooperation <3
  16. Uh, I like to try and help the game be abit more fun and ask, if maybe theres a chance to make an Ai for Red alert that gets smarter after each player it takes on, this would make the game amazing making pros have more fun :]!?
  17. Hello folks. I've been doing some modifications to RA1 recently. Got a lot more indepth than what I remembered a decade ago. During my modding, I made some icons and shps. You might find them useful. I combined/fixed (and rescaled) some shps together from other creators. I apologize if I missed your credit. Leopard 2A4 (rescaled from ROB's Armageddon V) - 2tnk Bergpanzer Buffel (made from ROB's Leopard 2+TD MLRS) - Uses ttnk BRDM Strela-1 (made from AchromicWhite's BRDM and M48) - Uses ant1 TO-62 Flame Tank (AW's T-72 rescaled into ant shps) - ant2 IT-1 Drakon Missile Tank (made from AchromicWhite's TD Light tank+2tnk base) - ant3 BTR-80 (rescaled from ROB) - truk Fennek (rescaled BRDM) - jeep M2 Bradley (AW's TD light tank + BMP-1) - apc T-80U (combined AW's TD 2tnk+T-80) - 4tnk M60A3 Patton (1tnk with commander's MG turret on turret) - 1tnk M163 VADS (rescaled APC+flipped TD 1tnk turret) - stnk I've attached a preview for the Bergpanzer, the rest you'll have to download to see. Good luck. Modern SHPs Icon Pack.rar
  18. Good day Comrades 😃 About: The intention of this mode is to make some rebalance and make AI more agressive thus skirmish mode more fun. Of course it is possible to use in multiplayer(both players must install this mode on the same version of game). New units\Structures: - Soviets now have Commando instead of Tanya(she is more Allied afterall) - Chnged skin of Light Tank (by AchromicWhite) - Changed skin of Tesla tank (by Nyerguds) - Allied now have Badger bomber and Airfields (it feels wrong that they have no Aiplains) to make it work I had to remove Yak plane from Soviets(no pitty) Changes to existing units: - All allied units gained +5-10% HP, exept Artillery +100% HP (IMHO vanilla Allied units are too weak) - Medium tank have mg90 machine gun as secondary weapon (to be more effective against infantry, all tanks have macineguns afterall) - Units roket incresed danage to troopers: Bazooka, Destroyer, Longbow helicopter, Phase tank (it feels wrong that rockets cant kill infantry after 1-3 shots) - Mine layer mines increased damage - All useless buildings like fakes, barbwire fence, small power plant were removed - Some units were removed: Jeep, Radar jam, Mobile gap generator, Aircraft carrier(I hope some one who builds new skins for RA can build a really nice big Aircraft ship) - Prerequsites of almost all units were removed ( faster search in the build list ) - Many other small changes I really dont remember everything 😃 Gameplay changes: - Increased speed of ore growth and its cost (more money more units can be build = more fun) - Increased build ratio of aircrafts for AI (their air attaks are very massive now) - Paratroopers now 10 instead of 5 (with 10 troopers you can do some damage) - Parabombs now have 2 bombers and 6 bombs (vanilla 1 and 5) - To capture building you need only 1 engineer (sometimes AI send an engineer to your base and now this action has a meaning) - Increased crates quantity (wich allows AI randomly pick up different nice things like MCV or Nuke more often) - Nuke damage increased by 300% (now its real Nuke not a puff) - Other options to change AI behaviour to be more agressive Install: Unzip to game folder, overwrite old files(dont forget to make a copy of original files before this!) Have fun. Post comments. Cheers Red Alert - Rebalance mode ver1.00.zip
