Another noob with his problems

Recommended Posts

Ive tried, ive searched high and low and cant find the answers that are simple enough for my little brain to understand.

any changes i make to ore (how fast it grows, what its worth, etc) dont take effect - i have learned as much that im editing the MPR file, running it through cncnet, have even played my custom map over lan with other alterations taking effect, but no changes to the ores related stats...

i grew up playing ra1, and now that ive found it again im hoping to sink some hours

id greatly appreciate any help or advice

i also struggling to find any direction with adding build icons

for example i have added the hospital to the map im building, but it has no icon for the build menu. for testing purposes i attached the bio lab icon using the "Image" line in the .MPR, but this also changed the graphic on the battle map to the bio lab, and had it cycle through its image set non-stop.

im not a coder/modder/programer by any stretch of the imagination and ive taught myself pretty much everything i know (which is virtually nothing) i just want someone to say "look here it will explain it" haha

Infinite money maps use the following mod (it grows very fast, depending on what you are trying to do you'll have to slow it down):

 

[General]
BailCount=10
GoldValue=150
GemValue=150
GrowthRate=.02

 

If the growthRate is too high you'll need to surround the ore with rocks to prevent it from covering the whole map, if you don't want to use rocks then do the following:

 

[General]
OreSpreads=no

 

Not all buildings have icons, some of them were not supposed to be build

      I was trying to be careful and the map worked in its early versions. The version have now is causing myself and other players to desync about 5 minutes into the game with this custom map. The map is kinda fun and different. Tried to take inspiration from starcrafts style. Its not too radical. But
      I think my questions are what makes the red alert 1 (include aftermath) dsync online? Consider its custom map, unit alterations, image changes. Worse case scenario I'll release it as a single player skirmish map. I make use of the spawn file that holds images of c&c dawn units. The RAedit adds triggers. I tried deactivating the triggers and teams hopping that was the mighty fix. Well didn't seem to do it.

      We removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina).
      Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina.
       
       
       
      If you're running a older version of macOS you can still try to install the games (C&C / Red Alert / Tiberian Sun) manually:
       
      Step 1: Install wine-stable https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS
      Step 2: Download the following script, right-click and select Open https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet.command.zip
       
       
       
      If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15:
       
      Use bootcamp: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468

      On a Mac running VMWare Fusion with Windows 10. 
      Game runs run, but whenever I go to "Play Online" CnCnet loads fine, I select online, and the chat window loads but never connects / no one is ever on it.
      Is this some network setting I need to change (I'm an Apple guy haven't used PC's in close to 20 years). Or is there another plugin or patch to install.
      Again the game runs fine and this loads, just can't seem to "connect" into the network.
      My father is running this same game on a Mac through the Wine Emulator and connects and plays online all the time.
      I had the same thing working but just upgraded to Mac Catalina today and it wiped out the game.
      Thanks for your help!

      In C&C: Red Alert vehicle named as "V2 Rocket" is a 9K52 "Luna-M" or "FROG-7" in NATO reported name.
      I suggest to improve the vehicle name or make it optional.
      Ingame vehicle model.

      "Luna-M" (FROG-7) – Soviet short-range artillery rocket system.

      V-2 – Nazi Germany long-range guided ballistic missile.
