Red Alert Original - Crashes on Start


Hello Everyone,

Please can I get some help ?

I have installed the full version of the above, from this website.

I'm running Windows 10 home.

Installation was fine, start up application, select play offline...

Game starts but just the front screen then crashes.

ctrl alt delete doesn't work, I have to restart computer.


I had this game on Dosbox but for some reason it stopped loading new levels.

So it may be an easy fix but I'm becoming easily exhausted of trying to get this game to run.


Thanks in advance 😁

Did you try to change your renderer in the red alert config?


What the error message btw? is there a file named ra95crash.dmp in the game folder?

      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.

      I have a group of 4 of us that are all trying to play Red Alert online against one another and we are all having the same trouble. It appears we keep losing connection but not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hello, there.  I'm trying to play Red Alert 1 as part of the Ultimate Collection, but the game keeps crashing on me, particularly whenever I reload a save file.  I've already patched the game with FunkyFr3sh's installer and followed the advice given here:
      So far, it's still not working and I have no idea what to do.  I have a crash dump.  Where do I need to upload it?
