Can you 2 stop speaking in whatever language is that?

That is Portuguese, spoken by millions of people in Portugal and Brazil. English is not the only language in the world, it is generally considered that knowing more than one language is beneficial for you as a person, since every language is more than just a system of symbols and rules used for communication, it's a point of view through which entire generations of people belonging to a nation or culture have been viewing this world since their inception. Instead of demanding that everyone speak your own language in such a dismissive manner, I'd suggest you be more open to other cultures. Not to mention that this person was asking for help in the best way they knew, and luckily for them, some people here were actually able to assist. 

It's also about community. Does it matter what languages we speak if we're all here to enjoy this thing we clearly all love? Sharing this amazing series is part of why I am here, I want more and more people to experience these games once again, and that's why I'm working on translating these games into those languages that lack translations. The best way to make someone listen is to speak in their native tongue. Please, do not alienate people from other parts of the world simply because they speak a different language. Or, at the very least, if you really want to have a conversation with that person, try asking them to switch languages politely. If they're capable of doing that, they will. However, nobody will do it if you ask in such a disrespectful manner.

We don't help people who can't speak English? I don't understand your statement. They ask a question in Portuguese I would assume they can't speak English.

So no, to answer your question.

There's a rule, either written or unwritten, on Internet communities that English is to be used at all times unless it's a nation/language-specific community.

I'm not entirely sure this applies here. I've seen moderators on this board replying to people seeking aid in Spanish in, well, Spanish. Most likely through Google Translate, but still. Even if there is an actual written rule in here somewhere, then, perhaps, the best course of action is to simply inform the person about that rule by providing the link to it, and then to politely ask them to follow that rule and try to use English? I'm all for following rules, but while doing so, being polite is generally a nice thing. His comment just comes across as aggressive and dismissive.

On the other hand, it's a bit selfish and pretentious to speak in a non-English language in international communities (serve me in my language!!!!11!!). English is the de facto global language, and most people in the world know it in even a basic level. The Internet uses it, again, for things that aren't targeted towards specific nations/languages. How do the few who don't speak it even get past the registration process is beyond me.

It depends. If someone does it just out of selfishness, then yes, it's wrong. But it could be that this person really doesn't speak English well enough to explain the problem. Getting past the registration process is not that difficult, the words used there are mostly international anyway. As for most people in the world know it - that's not entirely true. Only those who actually learned it intently speak it well enough to explain themselves when it comes to things like techincal difficulties or, well, anything beyond the "the toilet is that way, sir". The majority of other people could speak it well enough to understand what you are trying to say, and, perhaps, even help you by saying something along the lines of "yes, library there, go left, go right, library you see there". But that's not really "speaking English", that's... ehh, "trying to speak English". And then you've got the general populace, most of which isn't even capable of reading English, let alone of speaking it. Of course, this situation varies from country to country, I'm primarily speaking about my own country here.

This is getting on my nerves. How can you 2 write such a wall of text and be so wrong at the same time... No words can describe this.

I already answered his "problem" in my first post, I'm pretty sure you guys can read. WHY write all this... something here? And all of this just because I asked other 2 guys if they can stop speaking in that language

You are somewhat, wrong here. That is only the point of view for english communities. There are a lot of these "internet communities" that are in other languages. True that most of dot com is in english. But each "international" community has its own language.

From wiki:

Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) allocate IP addresses:

After English (27%), the most requested languages on the World Wide Web are Chinese (25%), Spanish (8%), Japanese (5%), Portuguese and German (4% each), Arabic, French and Russian (3% each), and Korean (2%).[63] By region, 42% of the world's Internet users are based in Asia, 24% in Europe, 14% in North America, 10% in Latin America and the Caribbean taken together, 6% in Africa, 3% in the Middle East and 1% in Australia/Oceania.[68] The Internet's technologies have developed enough in recent years, especially in the use of Unicode, that good facilities are available for development and communication in the world's widely used languages. However, some glitches such as mojibake (incorrect display of some languages' characters) still remain.

 

So in my opinion. Let them talk in Portuguese. They aren't hurting any one. And you can google translate their stuff too. Would not be the first time for me to do that either.

      A very long time ago I found a Russian website with a RA1 TC called Third Revolution. It's a stand-alone total conversion with new campaigns and a setting unrelated to the C&C universe -- rather, it tells the story of a post-1991 restoration of the Soviet Union and its struggle against Capitalist adversaries. The author had problems with the black/transparent colour in the palette but otherwise it was pretty solid all-in-all.
      Back then I downloaded the Russian version, but later forgot about that TC until recently (had to ask around to remember the title). Anyway, the Russian version of the TC is available from The Red Alert Archive, however the developer's page also lists an English version (thirden.rar) among downloads, as well as a music pack (scores_full.rar). Supposedly, these were hosted at http://ra.afraid.org/thirdrev/, but the Wayback Machine does not have the respective files, and apparently they were at some point removed, for whatever reason.
      I was wondering if anyone still has these files archived somewhere? Also, it seems that the TC is based on Aftermath 2.02, would it be possible to upgrade to 3.03 Beta?

      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

      CnCNET is great, and since RA source code has been released this is a huge step in improving the game and adding nice juicy features that allow us to enjoy the game we love.
      Add a replay system, maybe as an option as saving a replay could add more lag to games.
      Fix bug where you can ally someone who is trying to Engi your building which prevents it from being captured
      New .ini keywords, this would allow for more control over making maps of all types from nurple to Defense maps
      I'll list a few keyword suggestions
      Ability to remove darkness crate as random chance Chrono (superweapon) Crate Size of Nukes/Demo Trucks explosions Force Ore Regrowth on (ignores lobby setting "Ore Regenerates") Crusher Flag for vehicles Helicopter Firing Delay Auto Attack Flag (Tanya for example) Build Speed Multiplier (per unit/building) New Triggers New blank units if modders want to add them to maps. (Like Ferrets Tiberian Alert mod)

      I told you my scroll was broken and it was. I played the entire match holding right click to move across the screen. I think you think I b.s.'d you to get you to commit or something. That is not at all the case.
      This was on the CNC remastered ladder.

      Current version of Red Dawn is Red Dawn 2014
       
      Last updated 5-29-20
       
       
      Red Dawn 2014 is standalone like 2013 and still uses Iran Patch/Portable RA that added Hires and better compatibility for Vista and forward systems. Red Dawn 2014 dosen't differ to much from Red Dawn 2013 when it comes to single player missions. The most noteable change is Nod now uses secondary colors for all missions. Five new mission added and one fan made are now included in the game. Jungle theater by Tschokky added and used for five of the new missions.
       
      Red Dawn Online has been merged with Red Dawn 2014. This mean online play on CnCNet 5 (old CnCNet 4 has been removed). Aftermath Game option is now Classic C&C option and when turned on the game will only use C&C95 units and buildings. The exceptions are the Missile Silo, Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport. The Missile Silo is needed as it is the only way for a Nuke to be made. The Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport are need for some RA1 maps most notable "Docklands (Medium)".
       
      RAED (Map/Scenario Editor) has been updated to the version edited by Iran to use all 6 theaters. At this time the CnCNet 5 ra95-spawn.exe dosen't support the Jungle theater but I have updated the CnCNet 5 lobby's map preview generator so when/if CnCNet 5 updates the ra95-spawn.exe to use the Jungle theater things are ready to go.
       
      System Requirements
      Windows 2000, XP, Vista or 7. Launcher and configuration tool require the .Net 2.0 framework. I think you could run on Win95 to ME with out the Launcher and configuration tool by starting the game from the RA95.exe. You may be able to get it to work on Linux and Mac with tweaks. PortableRA's Linux and Mac tabs should be able to help http://iran.cnc-comm.com/ra/

      I'm keeping support for Red Dawn 2012 as there is small change of systems out there that won't work with the Iran patch setup. Also it is a good source for modders looking for C&C 95 building and units that are already converted for use in RA1.
