RA1 full web installer stuck in extractin files....


Recommended Posts

I was just reading that there is a bug in the tools i used to create the installer, a resouce (GDI objects) leak that breaks the installer after a runtime of about 50minutes. I never noticed that since my connection is fast and the download takes only 10-15min. How long does it take for you to download the files for the full installation? You could try to uncheck the "install cd2" box and the download should only take half the time, maybe that is going to fix the problem


Adding singleplayer to the mini install would be an option too



Here is how you can do a full install using the freeware files directly:

1. Download both cds via your browser:

(EU Server) http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/freeware/RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar

(EU Server) http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/freeware/RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar


(US Server) ftp://ftp.cncnet.org/redalert/RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar

(US Server) ftp://ftp.cncnet.org/redalert/RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar

2. Start RA1installer and choose Full CD-Install

3. In the next menu select the folder where you downloaded the 2 .rar files and hit ok


Let me know if it worked!
