New cnc-ddraw release (Red Alert 1 & C&C95)

Recommended Posts

Added some new features such as saving position of the window and alt+enter to switch between window/full screen.

https://github.com/CnCNet/cnc-ddraw/releases

 

Red Alert Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/ra-config.7z

C&C95 Config: http://downloads.cncnet.org/addons/td-config.7z

 

Download and extract the files into your game folder. (You may not want to extract ddraw.ini, otherwise you may override your settings)

dumb question, but does this update all the the renderers (OpenGL, GDI, DDrawCompat), or is only one of these optimized with this release?  I could not find any documentation with your archive, so I'm not exactly sure which one to choose in order to see these changes.

OpenGL and GDI have all the new updates such as ALT+ENTER to switch from window to fullscreen, trying that feature should be the easiest way to test if it works. 

Note: if you run it in a window with a custom res that isn't supported in fullscreen then it wont switch

Hey Funky, are you able to place the "MaxFPS" setting from ddraw.ini to the config tool?  I noticed a bug in which setting the maxfps higher than 120 will revert it back to the default when launching the tool.  I personally use the maxfps setting to increase/decrease my scrolling speed, and to fix the crackling audio while using the HD Music pack.

I don't have any plans to add it back, nope. Scroll speed has a much better solution these days and HD music pack I never tried, so I don't know what it's about.

Try OpenGL + vsync instead

I think I'll just stick with modifying ddraw.ini itself instead of using the tool, since vsync always causes lag for me.

By the way, is there a way to stretch the main menu to fit my screen?  I swear it used to fill the whole screen, but now it only takes up about half of it.  I've always kept my resolution at the same (1024x768).

there used to be some background images that the old config placed into the game folder, but those were removed

New nightly build with Direct3D renderer is available now (could need some testers)

Happy to test :)

i7, GTX 1070, Windows 10 Home.

Also have a question.. any idea why the frame rate limit / mouse sensitivity doesn't make any difference? Game still scrolls too fast to be playable :(

I am using RA95 1.06c R3, your latest CnC-DDraw nightly build, I have both Limit frame rate and adjust mouse sensitivity ticked although I have tried all variations and I still get lightening fast scrolling.

The frame rate limiter doesn't slow down the scroll speed anymore with the latest cnc-ddraw since that was a pretty bad solution from many years ago. It actually slowed down the whole game, not just the scroll (which ended up causing lag in online games).

I assume you're talking about CnC95, not RA95? The CnC95 campaign doesn't have the scroll speed limiter patch yet, so you'll have to enable a workaround I added to cnc-ddraw until nyerguds updates his installer.

 

Add the following line to ddraw.ini

Quote

sleep=5

 

You can choose a number between 1 and 16, higher number means slower scroll speed. It's probably the best to keep the number as low as possible to prevent slow downs during the gameplay.

      First version of the tool. The only thing this can do is preview .mrf files by applying the remap filter to a given screenshot.
      http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/project_stuff/2014/FilterCreator/filterviewer.rar (needs .Net 3.5)
      (Includes a screenshot + all .mrf files for the desert and temperate theaters)
      This is the desert shadow ("shade") filter:

      It seems a lot of the mrf files (like the one used for the shroud edges) have multiple tables inside them. I think this is the shroud edges table (for Temperate):

      The final tool will basically have 2 panes, one to view an existing MRF file on a pic like this already does, while the other will have a previewer for the new theater's screenshot, with a set of hue/brightness/saturation/etc tools to make the image on the other preview pane match the loaded mrf filter view. Then once it matches, it can generate a table out of that.
      I'll probably allow saving these filter values as presets so stuff like for example the shadow under units can easily be generated once the filter values have been figured out.

      We're going to have a ladder map poll soon, you can suggest maps that should be added to the poll here.
      If it's a new/unknown map or a modified version of a original map then please add a screenshot.
