Broken CnCNet update was broken!

6 posts in this topic

Heya folks,

 

I pushed an update today trying to address that pesky "Couldn't replace wsock32.dll" error. When I packaged the update I mistakenly slipped in a broken cncnet.dll that was auto-updated to everyone. Naturally no one could not connect anymore.

 

Got it fixed pretty quickly after discovering. Sorry for the interruption. It will auto-update hopefully when you run cncnet.exe again. If it doesn't, redownload the client from our site.

 

Working towards CnCNet 4.0, new fancy things are coming this year!

Mod support for RA1 somehow? :)

 

When your mod is ready we can add support to 3.1 if it's before 4.0 release.

I updated it today since the host was lost with Megauploads. I already ask about this once http://cnc-comm.com/community/index.php?topic=1769.0

 

I rebuilt it to be like the one you and cchyper did at redalert1.com. It is now full standalone. Applied the fixes listed in the “build.txt” to the redalert.ini also kept the registry fixes from Nyerguds for Vista and Win 7.

 

The .exe is and old 3.03 that only has a no-cd fix and I changed the names on the registries that enable Counter Strike and Aftermath so I did not uninstall the Counter Strike and Aftermath registries that are for my stock RA1 that uses CDs again… It doesn’t have the any other fixes listed in the “build.txt”.

Ah, sorry, I don't follow the forums that much.

 

I suggest applying nocs and noam patches if you don't want them to appear ever in the menu (http://hifi.iki.fi/cnc/ra/patches/).

 

4.0 is actually pretty close now, I'll look into adding your mod directly into the first release!

I will be using Counterstrike and Aftermath.  Red Dawn supports ALL Single Player campaigns, Counterstrike and Aftermath missions. Would it make thing easier for you to me to just to use the .exe from the expansions.zip?

 

I got the expansions.zip before megauploads was nuked. It has the LAN fix that is need for CnC Net. I can make patch for Red Dawn to add the need parts for CnC Net play. It would look like this.

 

cncnet.exe              From online version

mpgdll.dll  From online version

ra95.exe  From expansions addon.  Re-named to rd95.exe and change icons to C&C95 icons, No other changes unless need for CnC Net.

wsock32.dll  From online version
