Question

I just bought Command & Conquer The Ultimate Edition from EA Origins, then i downloaded the game and everything seemed fine, but when i tried to launch it i got the error message: Unable to set video mode.

 

I have tried to run it in every compatibility mode there is but still no dice. I have windows 10 and all my drivers are updated...

 

Tank you for any help :D

You need the cncnetclient to run it on cncnet which is on this website at https://cncnet.org/red-alert

You can download red alert free, its ra2 and ra2yr that you need to pay for.

You still need to down load the cncnclient for ra2 and yr but the cncnetclient will search for the game on your hard drive first to verify you have bought the game as it isnt freeware.

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.

      I want to edit the vehicle and building graphics. Where do I find the original graphics and where do I have to place the edited ones in cnc to replace the original?

      I was just wondering but is this an issue that is on the team's radar?
       
      If you take my name Bane_ for example on this month's RA ladder, there is a total mix of average fps for my games (as low as 43 fps even...). By way of comparison, if I'm playing normally on CnCNet I can quite happily be in 8 player games with it running at full speed without any issues at all. Multiple other people suffer from the same issue if you go checking through the names so I'm not sure what's up really.
       
      It isn't lag but when a game decides it's going to average more around say 40-50 fps, you experience it as a periodic hitching all the way through the match (right from the word go so it doesn't worsen as more and more units and structures are built) and it leads to a pretty unpleasant game as it messes around with your build timings and Q and so on in what should be a fast-paced game.
       
      Is there any obvious culprit that could be causing dropped frames like that? Restarts don't seem to help, neither does running the quickmatch client directly with CnCNet closed and as few other programs open as possible.
