Running CnCNet server using systemd (Linux x64)

 

wget downloads.cncnet.org/tunnel.sh
sh tunnel.sh 200 "Unnamed Server"

If you're unsure what linux distro to choose, just take the latest version of Ubuntu

 

 

Using the above method you can run both CnCNet servers as a service and they will continue to run even after the server restarted.

 

Alternatively you can also run the servers individually (see below):

 

 

 

 

 

New Server (All Games)

 

 

Linux x64 example:

wget -c https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server.tgz -O - | tar -xz

nohup ./cncnet-server --name "My cool server" --maxclients 200 --port 50001 --portv2 50000 > cncnet-server.log 2>&1 &

Linux ARM

 

 

Windows:

On XP, Vista and 7 make sure .NET 4.0 is installed: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=17113

Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server-gui.exe

 

 

Note: Servers are chosen automatically by CnCNet and are only used in case 2 players fail to establish a Peer-To-Peer connection. Yuri's Revenge players can select a specific server via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.

 

 

 

 

 

Old Server (Yuris Revenge only)

 

 

Linux (Ubuntu) example:

sudo apt-get install default-jre

wget http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe

nohup java -jar cncnet-tunnel.exe -name "My cool server" -maxclients 200 -port 50000 -headless > cncnet-tunnel.log 2>&1 &

 

 

Windows:

Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe

 

 

Note:  To use a specific server you'll have to select it via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.

 

 

 

 

 

The servers will not show up instantly on the website, it can take up to 4 hours

      Your client might crash sometimes, and you might get an error message whenever you try to host/join a game.
      It happened to me, so I figured out a way to fix it, and I thought it may help you as well, in case you experience the same thing.
      Just go to "RA2\Client" (where your game is installed) and delete these files:
      "friend_list", "ignore_list", "recent_list" (the client would create new ones).
      They could get messed up, which would prevent you from playing.
      If you really care about these lists, you can copy them to another location.
      Deleting only one or two of them might solve the issue, so you can try that (Quit, delete, restart and test, one by one), but for a guaranteed quick fix, delete them all at once.
      That would wipe out your lists.
      To restore them, you can either edit them the old-fashioned way (copying info from the old files to the new empty ones), or make new lists from within the client, as you'd do normally.
      Good luck! 🙂

      Good day, everybody! 🙂

      There's a necessary feature that must be included, which is to link the nickname to the player's ID, so that your friends would still be on your "Friend List" even if they change their nicknames.
      As of now, that is not the case, so any change to your friends' nicknames would make it seem like they've gone offline, even if their nicks just got an automatic underscore for a short disconnection. So you'd have to re-add every friend whenever they use a different nickname! or else they won't show up as "online" on your list, which makes it useless.
      You wouldn't even know whether that's your real friend or someone else using the same nick!
      It's ridiculous to have an imposter on your "Friend List" 😀

      Hi, everyone.

      When a host selects a map, other players in the room are asked to download it to be able to see and play it, if they don't already have it, and often times, undecided hosts keep picking different maps to preview them before selecting one.
      So, players are left with 2 not very good options. Either to download the maps that the host picks, cluttering their clients with so many unnecessary maps that they probably would never play, OR to not download the maps, and not be able to preview or play them either.
      You can download, but you can't delete!
      This is especially irritating with cheat-maps; fake maps which look totally identical to original ones (same pic, title, everything) but with unfair edits.
      You can't easily tell which one is which, and even if you can, you won't be able to get rid of the fake ones, and you may also "distribute" it to others, unknowingly.
      My suggestion is to add two useful options which were available back in the day in the original client:
      1- Enable players to preview the map before downloading it (makes sense).
      2- Add a "Delete" button which would make it much easier to remove clutter maps, with the ability to multi-select them (Ctrl + Select) & (Ctrl A + Unselect) to delete all but the ones unselected.
      You can also add a "Select" button, so that just clicking the map would only preview it, and not require others to download it until the host decides to "Select" it.
      I only play a few maps (about 10), but I have over 1,000 maps which I don't want, and the only way to delete them is by going to the game files, and it's not that easy either, because map names are encrypted, so I don't know which ones to delete and which to keep.
      I'm really surprised that the "Delete" button is not yet available.
      The client's been created about 6 years ago. This is a key feature, and it's relatively simple to add, compared to the many less-important features that have already been added.
      I'm not complaining. Just expressing my shock 😲😀

      EDIT: The new mod profile is live!
       
      So long time no chat. lol 😀 Since finally completing the story campaigns for Tiberian Dawn Redux a couple years ago I have been repeatedly approached about carrying the mod over into the RA universe with a spinoff. I haven't decided if it will be a mini-mod type add-on built into TDR (think GDI/Nod vs. Allies/Soviets in skirmish) or a standalone project built off of the renovated C&C Generals SAGE engine TDR is now using. I know a lot of the assets and coding between the original TD and RA games is nearly the same so it would streamline development quite a bit. (looking into the original game files I noticed a lot of the art and audio assets are using the same filenames to confirm this) The biggest hurdles I have will be making a decent naval system, designing, coding, and animating attack dogs and then the Chronosphere stuff. I may also (as I did with TDR) consolidate the unit and structure tech tree and add unit upgrades and special abilities. (e.g. Engineers doubled as Mechanics and APC's doubled as Medics) So who wants Red Alert Redux? And I will say it will not be a 1:1 remake. As I did with TDR I aim to keep as much of the original wacky tech and atmosphere Westwood developed for TD and RA but also have a more realistic spin on it in both appearance and gameplay. I have been considering consulting with the former Cold War Crisis Mod Team and the guys behind Red Alert: A Path Beyond.
