Hey everyone. I've been working on making the switch over to Manjaro and everything is great so far. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get CNCnet working for Red Alert. I have tried the Manjaro package and the Windows package via Wine, and I have Wine mono and about as many other Wine packages that I can think of. I am running what is pretty much a fresh install of Manjaro XFCE on an AMD A8 based laptop with 8gb of RAM and plenty of space on the SSD. These are my two problems in more detail, I appreciate any advice or direction in advance:
1. Manjaro Package Installer: Everything seems to process correctly up until the very end. The installer hangs at "Finishing Installation... Installing .NET framework 2.0" for about a minute then it just goes away and CNCnet will not open via the program shortcut. I've run the script at the bottom of my post a few times to retry the process, but no dice.
2. Windows .exe installer via Wine. The installation goes on without a hitch, and Red Alert is able to open successfully. Every time I pick the "Online" option, the application crashes without an error. I've tried selecting several different resolution and rendering options.
rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet
played this game for many years and have used the Cncnet client for RA1 for about 18-20 months. Recently purchased a new platform with Windows10. Same internet connection. Client loads okay but regularly I'm getting disconnected with the client showing "ping timeout". Internet settings have been re-booted, I don't have any firewall settings on at this present time but the problem persists. If I loads the client and go into the game lobby I have around a minute to get into a multiplayer game before none of my choices register with other players. Text, readying up etc etc.
Some help would be greatly appreciated. I have removed the RA files a couple of times, tried most things but the same issue persists.
When I do manage to get into a game, it lasts and for some reason I can hold out a game with no issues...….
Hi fellow C&C fans,
I've been trying for a couple of days to get C&C 95 working on my Windows 10 Laptop with no luck.
I've followed FunkyFr3sh's instructions (C&C 1 (Tiberian Dawn) Installation on Windows 10) and downloaded and tried a few different versions i could find of Nyerguds patch with no avail.
Depending on the settings/compatability modes i try, i get the following outcomes:
1: Game opens, goes to play the Westwood intro and freezes about 2 seconds in (as some of the ripples appear before the text). No audio plays. Games goes non-responding.
2: Stops at a black screen.
3: Opens the main menu instantly, but clicking on any button causes the game to go Non-responding.
Can someone please help me work out how to get it running?
If anyone knows how to get the DOS version running through DOSBOX (with full Audio & music) I would be more than happy with that, but ideally the C&C 95 version.
Thanks in advance!
