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.

auto is using direct3d 9 now, I didn't try recording with it yet. Maybe you need to use "game capture" for it to work with obs

      Good day Comrades 😃
       
      About:
      The intention of this mode is to make some rebalance and make AI more agressive thus skirmish mode more fun. Of course it is possible to use in multiplayer(both players must install this mode on the same version of game).
       
      New units\Structures:
      - Soviets now have Commando instead of Tanya(she is more Allied afterall)
      - Chnged skin of Light Tank (by AchromicWhite)
      - Changed skin of Tesla tank (by Nyerguds)
      - Allied now have Badger bomber and Airfields (it feels wrong that they have no Aiplains) to make it work I had to remove Yak plane from Soviets(no pitty)
       
      Changes to existing units:
      - All allied units gained +5-10% HP, exept Artillery +100% HP (IMHO vanilla Allied units are too weak)
      - Medium tank have mg90 machine gun as secondary weapon (to be more effective against infantry, all tanks have macineguns afterall)
      - Units roket incresed danage to troopers: Bazooka, Destroyer, Longbow helicopter, Phase tank (it feels wrong that rockets cant kill infantry after 1-3 shots)
      - Mine layer mines increased damage
      - All useless buildings like fakes, barbwire fence, small power plant were removed
      - Some units were removed: Jeep, Radar jam, Mobile gap generator, Aircraft carrier(I hope some one who builds new skins for RA can build a really nice big Aircraft ship)
      - Prerequsites of almost all units were removed ( faster search in the build list )
      - Many other small changes I really dont remember everything 😃
       
      Gameplay changes:
      - Increased speed of ore growth and its cost (more money more units can be build = more fun)
      - Increased build ratio of aircrafts for AI (their air attaks are very massive now)
      - Paratroopers now 10 instead of 5 (with 10 troopers you can do some damage)
      - Parabombs now have 2 bombers and 6 bombs (vanilla 1 and 5)
      - To capture building you need only 1 engineer (sometimes AI send an engineer to your base and now this action has a meaning)
      - Increased crates quantity (wich allows AI randomly pick up different nice things like MCV or Nuke more often)
      - Nuke damage increased by 300% (now its real Nuke not a puff)
      - Other options to change AI behaviour to be more agressive
       
      Install:
      Unzip to game folder, overwrite old files(dont forget to make a copy of original files before this!)
       
      Have fun. Post comments. Cheers
