on the forum of the link u mention the following :


1) Get XWIS' Red Alert 2 multiplayer distribution: http://xwis.net/down...Multiplayer.exe

2) Get XWIS' Yuri's Revenge multiplayer distribution: http://xwis.net/down...Multiplayer.exe

3) Install both.

4) From your RA2 Allied disc, copy multi.mix, theme.mix, maps01.mix and movies01.mix to your RA2 directory.

5) From your RA2 Soviet disc, copy maps02.mix and movies02.mix to your RA2 directory.

6) From your YR disc, copy multimd.mix, thememd.mix, maps03md.mix and mov03md.mix to your RA2 directory.

7) Download and apply the XWIS RA2 Windows 8/10 fix. You may use the WinXP SP3 compatibility mode instead of the Win7 one: http://xwis.net/foru...windows-10-fix/

8) Download and apply the XWIS YR Windows 8/10 fix. You may use the WinXP SP3 compatibility mode instead of the Win7 one: http://xwis.net/foru...windows-10-fix/

9) Configure your resolution in ra2.ini and ra2md.ini for RA2 and YR respectively.

10) Launch the games from game.exe and gamemd.exe. No disc required.


im now at step 9 but i dont know what to change the resolution to?

(i tryed to change it to 1920x1080)


when i try to start the game using the game file i get the following error (see attachment
