I'd like to fill the first page with as many links as possible to websites with RA2/YR maps, whether they be skirmish, campaign, survival... whatever. So feel free to post some links so that I can add them, thanks ;).

Sorry but I have no idea. It's weird that the rendering program only allows one file at a time. Nice tool (the only map renderer for RA2/YR as far as I know) but having this restriction is kinda annoying. I guess you'll have to render your maps one at a time (which you've probably already done by now :P ).

Well... for those still interested, I figured out a way... (for Win 7, but it should be similar for Win 8 and 10)

 

Open up Command Prompt (in admin mode to avoid problems):

Spoiler

Click Start -> type: cmd -> right click cmd.exe -> click "Run as administrator"

Add RA2 & TS Map Renderer's folder to PATH:

Spoiler

In Command Prompt, type: path=%path%;(RA2 & TS Map Renderer folder). Example:

c:\>path=%path%;c:\games\ra2tsmaprenderer [ENTER]

Now go to your RA2/YR maps folder that you want to convert:

Spoiler

cd (RA2/YR maps folder). Example:

cd c:\games\ra2\maps [ENTER]

Finally, type (or copy/paste):

  • for %m in (*.mpr,*.map,*.yrm) do cncmaps.renderer -i"%m" -j -s [ENTER]

This will convert all the maps in the folder that you chose into jpegs, with tiled starting positions. To see other options, type:

  • cncmaps.renderer /help

I just re-read my post above but I can't really see how I can make it much clearer :P. You did click "Reveal hidden contents" in my post didn't you? If you did, how far do you get:

  1. Opening Command Prompt (cmd)
  2. Adding RA2/YR Map Renderer to the PATH variable
  3. Changing Directory (cd) in cmd
  4. Copy-pasting into cmd?

No problem. The renderer that came with the YR Client works the exact same way as well.

one more question if you don't mind, so the whole thing am asking for is to edit some maps i have, mostly survival maps.

so the maps have names like "28827742..." and the renderer is producing screeshots with actual names, any idea how i can i make the renderer skip the map name and produce output based on input file ?? 

in other words, when i render the map "10.map", the screenshot name is "survival by X.jpg", can i force it to skip naming ? so the output be "10.jpg" ? or is there another app to change .map names ?

Add -o"%m" to

  • for %m in (*.mpr,*.map,*.yrm) do cncmaps.renderer -i"%m" -j -s

So instead of that^, it's now...

  • for %m in (*.mpr,*.map,*.yrm) do cncmaps.renderer -i"%m" -j -s -o"%m"

 

I tried it just now but only with a few files so I'm not 100% sure. Let me know how you go :P.

Oh nice :), thanks for letting me know. Hopefully zzattack (Frank Razenberg) adds these features to his gui in his next update, instead of us having to manually type them in... grrrr.

Hi
I have a problem with maps
I have two copies of Red Alert 2
The first one is old and has many maps and it does not work online
The second one is played online but has few maps
I have inside in the first version

A map I love very much and has many boxes

I did not find them anywhere on the Internet
When I move that map to the second version it works fine
But when playing online
A message appears
My copy is old and must be updated

Can anyone help me to play on that map online?
thank you

I am new to this forum however I am one of the original RA2 players. Is this game still played online? I don't seem to be able to make a  connection with any other players. I have the original copy, the very first release that was pulled off the shelves. I also have a new copy from origins that I have been using on windows 10.  I haven't had good luck with alternative maps on this edition.

Posting my (YR) custom maps from ages past here, per the advice of an upstanding member of this forum =p

Feel free to try, edit, or do whatever with them what you want. As said in my separate post, some of them might have overpowered spots etc, so it's probably worth taking a look at before using them in multiplayer (I didn't built them with pvp in mind methinks)

(Also they're in YRM/MPR format so probably need converting anyway)

      So I installed the installer and this message pops up everytime I try to open the launcher. I have reinstalled it and it launches the Launcher but I cant save my settings either for some reason. it keeps saying "Cant access the path "D:\Westwood\RA2\ddraw.dll". I thought it was a Read-Only issue. So, I removed read-only from all the files but still it isnt working. Any help?

      Hi. Me and my friends like to play red alert 2 yuris revenge online and we like to play long games. So we were playing it a few days ago. there was no problem. And our games lasts almost 2 hour. But for a few days we started getting reconnection errors and it ends the game. It does not happen beggining of the game. It is happening almost end of the game like 1 hour later. I wanna know your opinions. what might cause this kind of error? Is it a common issue on cncnet or is it just us?
