Iran Posted December 9, 2012 Share Posted December 9, 2012 On some modern machines Red Alert crashes/freezes if Red Alert 1 isn't set to run on one CPU, but if this is in fact set for some people this causes the audio and movies to crack/lag. I think I found a solution by setting the game to run on one CPU and setting Windows 98 compatibility plus disabling desktop composition. This seems to work with cnc-ddraw on and off for me, but I'm not sure if this is also the case for other people. This is what I like people to test. Try the following: 1. Download and unzip: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/21865790/PortableRA.zip 2. Run RedAlertLauncher.exe 3. Check if you crash in the main menu of the game. 4. Try playing a few games, see if you crash or not. Once done testing, tell me whether you crashed or not plus the following: 1. Whether the crashes happen with CnC-DDraw turned on and whether they happen when it's off (you can turn CnC-DDraw on/off in the config tool under the 'Video Options' tab). 2. What operating system you are running and whether the operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit. 3. If you have a multi-core or single-core CPU. 4. If CnC-DDraw is on, whether they happen with OpenGL and/or GDI as renderer (this can be configured in the config tool too) You can post your results here or on the chat at http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=cncnet Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
