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 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)

If you dear people don't mind I'd like to share my own maps as well in here.
I've added them into the attachments here.
Besides I've made a thread about them here - so any updates will be posted there:

You'll need more information:

Did you get the map from this topic, or somewhere else? (provide the link) If you can't find the link, please attach the map files here so that people can test them out.

When does this error occur? - Is there something happening during the game that could possibly be triggering it (too many units on the screen?). Does the map even load up?

      Hi community, 
      the last week i was playing a few qm's. Today I wated to login again but it is not possible for me. I don't see the login dialog. Instead it's firing up a message instructing me to create a ladder account, which i already have. I am adding a screen down below. Is the request to the server stuck or something? 
       
      Thx in advance.

      I'm trying to create a portable version of RA2, so I want to eliminate the registration for Blowfish.dll. I found a link from @Iran where @FunkyFr3sh described a method here:
      https://ppmforums.com/topic-41629/using-blowfishdll-without-registration-no-admin-rights/
      But the example there is dead, and I can't seem to produce a manifest that works. MT.exe gave me this:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0"> <file name="blowfish.dll" hashalg="SHA1"> <comClass clsid="{1440AD10-6AA8-11D1-B6F9-00A024DDAFD1}" tlbid="{E7F91750-8861-11D1-B707-00A024DDAFD1}" description="Blowfish encryption algorithm"></comClass> <typelib tlbid="{E7F91750-8861-11D1-B707-00A024DDAFD1}" version="1.0" helpdir="" flags="HASDISKIMAGE"></typelib> </file> <comInterfaceExternalProxyStub name="IBlockCipher" iid="{E0113100-6A7C-11D1-B6F9-00A024DDAFD1}" tlbid="{E7F91750-8861-11D1-B707-00A024DDAFD1}" proxyStubClsid32="{E0113100-6A7C-11D1-B6F9-00A024DDAFD1}"> </comInterfaceExternalProxyStub> </assembly> But it does nothing. I'd be grateful for any help.

      I recommended my friend to update YR to play online on cncnet. At first he can play with me normally, but 3 days after installed the program this happen to him

      How can this problem be solved? He's very frustrated because it is suddenly happen and he doesn't want to quit YR. Please help.
      p.s. he doesn't have an account on cncnet community, but if anyone who can help him and wants to talk to him. I'll tell him to register on this site.
