CnCNet 5 released!

Recommended Posts

it is part of windows 7 :) only XP users need to install it manually

Turns out I uninstalled .net :P

Can't believe apps fail in such a bad way, why can't they popup a nice error message?

i guess anything above 1280x720 should be fine

IMO you should support lower resolutions.

they are above by default, but would be below all other windows if the user turned "always on top" on for other windows in the settings. It was just added to ensure nothing jumps on top of the settings window while you are changing your settings. Only the dialogs which are meant to be open for a short time show on top like this

I think that's annoying and wrong.

I think windows 8 can show messages in such cases, but every other windows fails :D

i can prolly support 1280x720 with dpi scaling since its mainly a height problem with that resolution and squeezing the height is still possible, but width problems are not so easy to fix

I don't like W8..

What's preventing you from lowering the minimal horizontal resolution?

The game itself got problems with dpi scaling too, so it wasnt that important for me to fix the client since its the best option to turn off dpi scaling to be able to play

Is each game supposed to have it's own separate installations of Mumble? Because I went into the CnCNet5 lobby then clicked 'Voice-Chat' after loading up Dune 2K and RA1, and both times Mumble was downloaded and installed.

 

Also, how do I update the Mumble that's installed for each game? I downloaded the update from the link given by Mumble (SourceForge) and I can only either update ONE of the installations (RA1 or Dune 2K) or create a-whole-nother Mumble installation in another folder.

 

*EDIT: I updated my Mumble that was installed in C:\Games\RedAlert1_Online\CnCNet5\Mumble, then I just copy-pasted all the files into C:\Games\Dune 2K (GruntMods)\Dune 2000\CnCNet5\Mumble. It seems to have updated both and are working fine as I can hear 2 people playing and talking about 'tanking up' and stuff :D. Is what I did ok or am I going to encounter errors later on?

it will always use the files from the folder you used to start the game, start your main folder (probably the old one you are using to play for longer time), then go to settings, game settings and link your Dune2000 folder to it, that way cncnet allows you to play both games without restaring and it wont download the files to the dune2000 folder again

Can't you just disable display scaling on the exe?

As far as I know, display scaling is generally a graphics driver or even monitor property... unrelated to the game. The only thing we can do is offer the cnc-ddraw scaling options to compensate.

The C&C95 v1.06 installer I made is a run-off-the-mill all-users application install, so it needs admin privileges.

I prefer having apps that are manageable through Windows' own install/uninstall system. Non-admin installs inevitably means there are no uninstall entries.

playing an online game without having the needed rights to allow it in the firewall is not a good idea!
