This is no cheat

Just download the patch from its original source, then you know it's safe.

 

The files you have there, as far as I can figure out, are from

http://www.nongnu.org/wined3d/

 

From the Steam forums: (https://steamcommunity.com/app/215930/discussions/0/846956740704592766/)

1) Download wined3d.exe from http://www.nongnu.org/wined3d/

2) Don't run the program! instead, extract its contents with 7Zip or somesuch http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

3) Copy ddraw.dll, libwine.dll and wined3d.dll from extracted $SYSWIN folder into the root folder of your game

Seems it was used as patch for Jagged Alliance 2, but if it works for RA2 too, then that's cool, I guess. I don't think it'll get any particular advantage from the 3D stuff though.

 


 

There's another fix like it, called DDWrapper. The official home page for that is http://www.bitpatch.com/ddwrapper.html

 

If you use that one... download the zip file and extract "ddraw.dll" and "aqrit.cfg" into your game folder. Then, open the configuration file "aqrit.cfg" in Notepad, change the "ForceDirectDrawEmulation" option to 1, save the file, and launch the game.

 


 

As you see, both of these put a "ddraw.dll" file in the folder. These files are not the same, so these patches can not be combined. Use either one or the other.

Nein, that didnt help. The ddl file is deliting hen launching game.

Why every time I have to drag the files there? I might as well throw cheats. SENSE!?

If you are using the CnCNet client it will delete the ddraw.dll file, it actually exists in the client options. Go to Options > Display > Renderer, set to ts-ddraw and try again.

Grant, "ddraw.dll" isn't necessarily TS-ddraw. I know at least 3 different versions of ddraw overrides now...

 

Took me his other thread to figure it out, but he's asking to add this one to the list of ddraw overrides that is allowed to be used for the game. I assume this means cncnet deletes any ddraw.dll it can't identify or something?
