Play on Mac problems

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am trying to get RA1 working on my macbook pro but I am having some issues playing online and playing with full screen.

 

I have installed play on mac and configured the wine settings but when I start the game it starts in a small screen.

 

Also when I try to play online it says:

 

"Windows version is out of date, Please upgrade to windows s1 or install Internet explorer 3 or higher"

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  :)

did you follow this tutorial ? http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/playonmac_playonlinux/

 

you have to add ddraw and wsock32 to the override list in the wine settings

start the game via cncnet.exe (not ra95.exe) then go to multiplayer/LAN to play online ... do not try to click on the internet button, it doesn't work

 

you can enable/disable window mode in ddraw.ini which is located in your red alert folder

hi,

 

Yes i i followed the tutorial, but when i configure the wine settings there is no option ddraw and wsock32.

 

They do not appear in the drop down. Do i have to add them manually?

got it working! thanks for your help,

 

However it is still a small window.

 

What do I need to do in the ddraw.ini file to make it full screen?

did you try what the tutorial said?

 

configure "Emulate a virtual desktop" 1280x800

open ddraw.ini in your redalert folder and configure it to use width=1280, height=800, maxfps=120, renderer=opengl
