Hey everyone. I've been working on making the switch over to Manjaro and everything is great so far. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get CNCnet working for Red Alert. I have tried the Manjaro package and the Windows package via Wine, and I have Wine mono and about as many other Wine packages that I can think of. I am running what is pretty much a fresh install of Manjaro XFCE on an AMD A8 based laptop with 8gb of RAM and plenty of space on the SSD. These are my two problems in more detail, I appreciate any advice or direction in advance:
1. Manjaro Package Installer: Everything seems to process correctly up until the very end. The installer hangs at "Finishing Installation... Installing .NET framework 2.0" for about a minute then it just goes away and CNCnet will not open via the program shortcut. I've run the script at the bottom of my post a few times to retry the process, but no dice.
2. Windows .exe installer via Wine. The installation goes on without a hitch, and Red Alert is able to open successfully. Every time I pick the "Online" option, the application crashes without an error. I've tried selecting several different resolution and rendering options.
rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet
played this game for many years and have used the Cncnet client for RA1 for about 18-20 months. Recently purchased a new platform with Windows10. Same internet connection. Client loads okay but regularly I'm getting disconnected with the client showing "ping timeout". Internet settings have been re-booted, I don't have any firewall settings on at this present time but the problem persists. If I loads the client and go into the game lobby I have around a minute to get into a multiplayer game before none of my choices register with other players. Text, readying up etc etc.
Some help would be greatly appreciated. I have removed the RA files a couple of times, tried most things but the same issue persists.
When I do manage to get into a game, it lasts and for some reason I can hold out a game with no issues...….
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 😁
