Looks fantastic. Awesome work you guys are doing. Love the idea of having a map preview, that will be really helpful.

 

I can't get it to connect though. Is it supposed to connect to the usual red alert lobby or Can you only play against other people with the new software?

it is connecting to a new lobby, currently there are no players cause it's still work in progress. But it already can be used to play, multiplayer and skirmish

 

What message do you get ? does it say Connection lost - attempting to reconnect ? if that is the case then it might just be a firewall issue, you could try the "freenode" server too

Impressive! I never thought it is even possible to hack something like that together so it works with RA95. Does the GUI work on Mac and Linux, too?

I didn't tested it yet, but its c# 2.0 so i guess it should work via mono. Currently wine is also needed cause i'm using an external launcher/updater

Could you please add feature Direct IP peer-to-peer (same feature in cncnet version 3.2) to cncnet v5 and next versions so players could play together through Internet directly without dedicated server.

Thanks!

That wouldn't work sadly, cause the game settings are sent via the server and the in game lobby has been removed completely.

 

But the games are currently all peer-to-peer (there is no tunnel server yet) and you are already able to host password protected games, that allows you to have private games/chat

it now also supports custom rules.ini/mods, use your modded rules.ini and rename it to spawn.xdp or just modifiy spawn.xdp

 

Make sure everyone got the same rules.ini file, else you can't play in the same game!

yay! :D

 

 

Russian language is now available too, thanks to 85!

 

it's now possible to place any new language files into the "RA1O-Strings" folder, the client will automatically find and list them in the settings dialog

I have done a language for this lobby from my country. :)

 

We are probably very little and unknown country on the huge world and next to huge Russia but also in this country there are some fans although unfortunately not that much of us...

I want that the public application also have this and hope you'll take it. :roll:

 

It surely makes your lobby more advanced. ;)
