Installing RA2 on public computers?

Question

I've been wondering...

 

I want to install RA2 on my uni computer lab server cause I've got bored of CS and don't know whether the On The House freeness would still apply...

 

I mean if it never appeared On The House I would have pirated it anyway but now I'm wondering if I were to download RA2 and install it on the server would it be breaking some terms of agreement or something?

"Compact" means "rewrite the mixfile". You can only do it for mix archives. I believe you have to open the mix archive, then right-click in it and then press "compact", though.

 

"open" it as in open launch xcc mixer, go to the directory where the XWIS RA2 is installed and find the mix files, and then double click on them? that extracts them...

I'm either blind or really dumb cause I don't see an open...

Actually give me an hour I'll get back home and try it on my laptop.

 

Also I tried to just the disable blowfish.dll line in the .ini files under options but for the RA2 launchers all I get is a weird error saying: "TXT_PREPARECOM_FAILED" in a dialog box which title says: "TXT_SHORT_TITLE" and the usual FATAL string manager error for the YR launcher...

you should not try to run the game without removing the encryption when the .ini key is set

 

browse to the folder, double click the .mix to view the content and compact

What? Are you sure you're using "XCC Mixer", and not one of the other tools? XCC Mixer is a file browser/conversion suite. Double-clicking a mix file in the file browser just opens it. It doesn't extract a thing unless you copy it out or convert it.

I simply can not get it working guys, and couldn't be bothered to try anything more...

 

Thanks for all the help. You guys simply are the best!

But I guess I just gotta keep playing counter strike and halo...
