Still having trouble Playing RA 1 over LAN

Question

So, I am trying to connect 2 computers to the LAN menu for RA1. They are both ethernet wired into the same router. I open the LAN server and menu on one and the other attempts to connect. It never connects however, and just gets stuck in a cycle of Connecting.... and No Response from Server. I have tried hosting on both computers but with no success. Can someone explain how this is supposed to work?

The IP address that the connecting computer tries to connect to is correct, except it adds a :6667 onto the end of the IP. That's the only odd thing that I see.

Or

Is there a way to get the in-game LAN menu to work? I noticed that this version doesn't allow you to enter the in-game menu even though the directory includes the LAN patch.

Thanks,

Von

It's normal that it adds the 6667, all looking good. I guess it can only be your firewall/anti virus blocking the access to that port. Do you have the same security programs installed on both pcs?

 

You should be able to use the old LAN with this installer: https://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/

You can do a mini web install, then in the launcher go on Play Offline. Don't start cncnet though, cause it will remove the LAN patch from the folder since it kept causing problems

      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.
