Red Alert 2 task manager process

Recommended Posts

Hi i need to know this because i use controller companion and i want cc to know to switch the profile to my custom yuris revenge controller mappings. It doesnt do that beause i need to know the process that it runs so i can add it to the profile launcher within cc. Iv tried the majority of the .exe in the installation folder and no joy. Any help would be appreciated and sorry if this post is in the wrong location. Thankyou.

For  pure Red Alert 2 (which is not supported on this server) it 's usually 'game.exe' and 'ra2.exe'. For  CnCNet's RA2-Mode or Yuri's Revenge it's 'clientdx.exe' for the game lobby and 'gamemd-spawn.exe' when in-game.

But unless you're doing something unusual, like changing shift + ctrl to just one key, you should be able to remap the keys in-game.

Clientdx.exe was one of the only .exes that I didn't add to controller companion but did throw up an error and stopped the client from launching. Makes sense cause I only wanted CC to kick in ingame, but it's understandable that the client exe and the game exe go hand in hand and must both be added in order to work correctly. I am away for 3 days but I will test this and let u know if it sorts it when I'm back ;)

A little late for the 'quick' answer now because I only just saw your question a couple of minutes ago :P, but the only thing that comes up in my task manager is the obvious one which is generals.exe, regardless of whether or not gentool is open. I'm using The First Decade version on Win 7.

If it doesn't work, just check it yourself (maybe your version uses a different exe file for some reason) by opening Zero Hour in *windowed mode with task manager also open. Click the 'Processes' tab then sort by 'CPU' in task manager so that whatever is currently running shows at the top of the list, then have both windows side by side and see what pops up.

 

*Right click Zero Hour short cut -> Properties -> Target -> add -win to the end of this line.

      Hey everyone. I am new here...I have DL the client and I am able to play online or skirmishes just fine. my issue is I can not play the missions (the game keeps crashing)  when i use the old RA2/Yuri path. The C&C.net path does not give the option for the missions. is there a repair patch that will allow me to play the missions?  All my C&C games come from Origin if this matters. thanks Scally..

      I played against this guy and he generated a reconnection error twice:

      This player obviously cheats. I've never had a reconnection error on cncnet before.
      I hope you can ban this guy.

      hi - I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU to Ryzen 9 5900x. Everything works well except that the game freezes the first two seconds when I enter an online game with other players. When I play online with AI the game runs extremely fast on 60FPS (crazy fast it feels like 1000FPS). I tried other renderers and that didn't fix it. Skirmish works without issues.
      Could you please help? It used to run well with my previous Intel CPU.

      I have been trying to play RA2 with my boyfriend. We are able to get the game started but as soon as we start building the game freezes and eventually kicks the other person out. We can start individual games and run them at the same time but as soon as we start a game together it crashes. we are playing in the same house, same internet, could our IP address be throwing the gam e off? Here is the error log. client.log

      I love this launcher since I can play online with friends in a windowed 1280-800 resolution.
      But I have a question, I need to touch something to play the SINGLEPLAYER game (since I wanna stream the campaing) in a windowed 1280-800 resolution?
      If yes: How?
      If not: Well, I dont lost anything asking
