Red Alert

Tiberian Dawn

 

A experimental debug patch was added to solve a game crash on Macs

 

The explosion crate has been replaced with the ion blast crate to test if the popular crate crash still occurs using another crate type

 

 

CnCNet

 

The client will now default to 4 player games for tiberian dawn since 5 and 6 player games are still broken (out of sync problems)

 

A workaround was added for players in the UK, specially those having virgin media internet provider (could also affect other providers).

P2P games failed to connect often cause internet providers in the UK put their customers behind proxy servers (Web Safe / Child Safe / Virus Safe).

Note: If you are running a CnCNet server, please update it to the latest version. All info can be found here:

Oh, I didn't change anything about that one yet (have no good solution for it yet)

But how about the other annoying error that happened when a game was about to start? I tried to fix that one, didn't hear anything about it yet. Does it still happen?
