in lobby, games list is is empty or has only 1 or 2 games

Question

hello, I was thrilled to find CnCNet recently.  My friend and I both found your site a few weeks ago and have been enormously grateful for it.  Things were working well and then I decided to upgrade from Win 7 to 10 due to the fact that Win 7 will no longer be supported in mid Jan 2020.  I reinstalled Yuri's Revenge as well as the CnC client for YR.  Now when I enter the game lobby I cannot see the usual list of ongoing games.  The list has zero to 2 games that show up.  I can see players listed, including my friend, but if I create a game he cannot see it and if vice versa.  I am at a loss as to why I seem to be isolated in terms of the game list.  I can see the usual lobby messages and can also see the player list.  Any help you can provide would be tremendously appreciated. 

Kind regards

Hello,

We need some additional information to help you out. In order for us to work out your issue, we will require your client.log file. Please attach it to your reply.

Finding your client.log file:

  1. Navigate to your Red Alert 2 folder. This is where CnCNet is installed.
  2. Look for the folder called "Client"
  3. Inside this folder, there will be a file called client.log

Thank you for your reply. : )   Here is the log file.  Today I can see a few more games, but only about 6, even though there are many more.  I know this because I have Windows 7 on my old hard drive and if I select that as my boot drive I am able to use CnCnet normally.  It is only when I boot to Windows 10 that I have this odd situation of only seeing a few games in the lobby.  On a side note, I get flagged that there is an update available for RA YR (5.5), but when I click the link to see the change log I get routed to the CnCnet forum and the link there sends me to github.  At github there are update files to download/source code, but I do not see a change log.  where is the actual change log posted?  In case you are wondering, I have not installed that update on my Windows 7 hard drive either and as mentioned above that has not been a problem.

      I want to make a Map that is totally Symmetrical.
      The thought had occurred, to try to use a Bitmap as an Import.
      Problem is, how do I export the Map as a Bitmap to then copy and flip it and so on.
      Also, would this even work, or would I confuse FA2.
      I just want to speed up Map Making, so is there a quicker way?

      I have spent several hours looking into making Mines that Spawn Gems.
      Based on how popular the idea is, but how difficult it can be to find the information, I'm putting this here.
      In my search for this, I've found several ideas, but no solid guaranties saying that something definitely works.
      Important Notes:
      Take into consideration, that I'm making a Map with Modified INI Data, and not an actual MOD.
      The reason for this is due to the Ore Mine Locations having Sand, and Ore being difficult to visually see.
      Also, the Ore spawns too slowly for the Map, meaning matches end in Stagnant Out Of Money scenarios.
      This means that players are throwing Para-Drops at one another to try and gain the advantage.
      The Match always Disconnects before a winner is found.
       
      Idea 01 - Changing Ore into Gems
      I tried the idea of calling 'Tiberiums' different names.
      So taking 'Riparius' and swapping it with 'Cruentus' and this yielded no results.
      So I'm currently exploring the idea of Taking Ore and redefining its Image so that it looks like Gems.
      Problem with this is, I'm making a Custom Map, so this is not likely to work so well either.
      Idea 02 - Making a Dummy Object/Unit/Building that can Spawn Gems
      Credits: Lin Kuei Ominae from PPMSite
      URL for Thread: https://ppmforums.com/topic-47543/is-there-any-way-to-make-ore-drill-spawn-gems/
      This is the Code that was mentioned in the post.
      [building] ActiveAnim=dummy [dummy] LoopCount=-1 TrailerAnim=gemspawn [gemspawn] MaxXYVel=25.0 MinZVel=25.0 Elasticity=0.0 Bouncer=yes TiberiumSpawnType=GEM01 TiberiumSpreadRadius=3 ;0-9 possible The issue with this is, to do this requires a MOD, and as such can't be done in a Map directly*.
      *That is assuming that you're not using additional tools outside of FA2.
      If you were really clever and extremely determined, you could in theory take this Data and manually add it into a Map.
      Though that is a lot of work, and may yield results that are open to change as CnCNet RA2YR is Updated.
       
      So that's what I found relating to the Topic, but not much of an answer as far as Map Creation goes.
      If/When an Admin of CnCNet reads this, I would propose the idea of CnCNet Staff placing some items into the general Updates.
      Effectively, to allow Modified Maps to have more variety, it would be nice if specific assets were available out-of-the-box.
      For example: Modified Sniper Animations (Sandbags) and Tech-Building Buildup Animations.
      While normally, these would have no effect in Normal Maps, this would allow Modified Maps to have appropriate Animation Data.
      Also things like Cameos and new Units would be nice, again inactive in Vanilla Maps, but available for Modified Map Creators to play with.

      Hey could anyone help me out? Im trying to get the YR CnCNet launcher working, but I keep getting this pop up (see the first uploaded image). I have ran it as an administrator and still nothing. Things to note about my game and setup:
      Windows 10 computer with Geforce RTX 2070, Driver version 461.92, and an Intel i7 Game Purchased off of Origin I deleted everything in _Installer/directx/redist except for DSETUP.dll, dsetup32.dll, and DXSETUP.exe to get the game to install properly File is set to Full Control Game launcher icon has the administrator icon on it already tried to load it with all anti-virus software offline I don't believe this could be a connection issue because Tiberian Sun CnCNet runs fine.
