False positive.

It's the OpenGL version of the client, on Windows it serves as a fallback if the DirectX client fails. On Unix and Mac its the primary one to be used as it can run more natively because those systems have OGL but don't have DX.

Not sure what triggered it, i might try at some point to get the client to compile and test what was it if Rampa or Bittah doesn't get this issue. Had the same last night, sadly gone are the good old days when the Avast with the blue icon existed and wasn't a pile of trash.

But eh i guess it's a industry standard now...

You should report it to your antivirus vendor(s) as a false positive.

IF we can of course

Can anyone recommend a good antivirus?

I use MalwareBytes. The Active Anti-Virus scanner portion requires a license but it's affordable. A decent free anti-virus our network tech uses on his personal gaming rig: http://www.clamwin.com/ Which is a clamAV port from Linux to Windows.

Within the past week MalwareBytes false positive flagged a DLL out of nVidia's GeForce Experience control panel (for lack of a better term). This file "C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\NVIDIA\NvBackend\ApplicationOntology\Ontology.dll".

Hello,

If CnCNet has been blocked or flagged by your anti-virus there are a few things to note. 

  • Firstly, this warning is often nothing to worry about. Anti-virus software often flag new files as a false positive, mainly because they have discovered a new file on your system they haven't seen before. This is very common in software development, especially for small scale developers such as ourselves. 
  • Other ways a file could be flagged as a false positive is the way we protect the software from being decompiled. Some of our software is protected for reasons to keep CnCNet services safe and secure.

Important steps you can take:

  • You can remove this block by allowing it as an exception to your Antivirus firewall.
  • Submit the file in question to a site such as Virus Total, where it will scan the file against other anti-virus definitions. You will probably find your anti-virus will be listed, among some of the others, but as a rule the ratio should be low, and this is fine.
  • To help us stop these alerts, you can submit a report to your antivirus software company, they will scan the file in question that has been flagged, and it will be reviewed and will come back as a false positive.

It's weird that different anti-virus programs give different results. It's like a doctor telling you that "You have cancer!", but another doctor saying "You're perfectly healthy!"

Ratio being low that's normal.

      I am having an issue where the game is installed correctly using wine and loads the game right up to the CNCnet menu for version 5.5 but each time I try to join a game, create a game, play a skirmish or anything past the point of "Launch Game" will immediately kick me back to the menu.
      I've been tinkering with it for a while and I'm not sure if its related to the game itself, the CnCNet client, or maybe I made a mistake somewhere along the way.
      Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated and good vibes shall flow forth for your generosity.

      Ever since the install of this, the patriot missile base defense towers, for the allied faction dont do anything. They build and then just sit there. Before theyd actually shoot at stuff. The game runs as it should, and doesnt really have any bugs, the only issue is literally the base defense towers.

      Am i missing a file?

      Trying to setup Origin RA2/YR on a new Macbook Pro 16".  Downloaded the software from Origin, installed latest YR CNC5 installer.  The new MBP16 has a Radeon Pro 5300M.  Following the issues I experienced:
      1. Using Origin, I can start the program but I see the application only on around 1/9 of the display on the top left side of the MBP16 display - the rest is black and obviously the game cannot be payed due to the small resolution.  Tried to look for solutions, changed to the latest ddraw.ddl I could find - no change
      2. Using CNC, I can set it up but I cannot run it in a full display mode .  The main screen shows in around 2/3 of the display and does not scale / stretch at all.  When running a skirmish, the game display is slightly bigger than the one I experience in point 1. above but only slightly and I cannot play it due to display/resolution limitations.
       
      Wonder if there is a specific Radeon setup I should use or any fixes that I should use to have a working game.
      Thanks in advance
