Game freezes with resolution change


Recommended Posts

Hi all, just joined up. I recently replaced my MacBook with a Dell laptop and purchased the CnC Ultimate Collection; I had been itching to play but as far as I knew couldn't with the MB. Once loading Yuri's Revenge through Origin, I couldn't get the game to run correctly until installing CnCNet, and now it runs great. Except that I can't change the resolution to anything other than 800x600. The skirmish loads up with a few blips in the loading screen, then when the skirmish starts I can't click or do anything. I have to go back to windows.

Is there anything else I need to be trying? Thanks for any help.

In the display options, try to switch the renderer to cnc-ddraw.

Thanks! Good news is that made the game playable, bad news is when I tried closing it it crashed and kept going to black screen. Any time I tried to close it or open task manager, the black screen would take back over. Finally had to reboot. Any way to prevent that? Appreciate the help!

Thanks. I tried a few more and thought I found one that worked, but the game eventually started crashing intermittently. Have one or two more in the list I can try.
