Minor issue with ultimate collection

Question

I did originally post this on the EA forum but received  no replies, so seeing if you guys can shed some light on the matter.

Hello all, running into an issue I have all the games form the ultimate collection up and running however I'm having minor issues...

For C&C and RA 1 whenever I exit the game I get a black square in the top left of my desktop and it prevents me from doing anything whatsoever, I have to signout of windows and then sign back in for my desktop to return to normal.

only other issue is TS and FS the menu lags, I select campaign and so on fine no issues like the menu buttons not being there and so forth, but then it just takes forever to load a game or go from one menu to another.

All games are playable no issues there, I believe it may be resolution related  my laptop screen is 1366X768. 

Im running windows 8.1

any help or advice would be appreciated

I gave it ago, with the patches, the C&C gold just went all patchy, there were enemy units showing up in the shroud across the other side of the map and was really glitchy...

Red alert patch crashed the game and said send to Iran for debugging lol

Haven't tried the TS and FS yet

That's normal if the map is smaller than the chosen resolution, only the first few missions have this problem. It's a side effect of the high resolution patch (Red Alert 1 got it too)

You can change your resolution to 640x400 via the config program if you prefer to play without the high res patch

Did you maybe enable any compatibility modes for ra95.exe in your game folder? Or did you allow origin to "update" the game after you applied the patch? (don't !)

 

Try to remove all compat modes from ra95.exe, the patcher is already doing that but origin likes to revert that changes if you don't stop it from doing so.

If origin "updated" the game, then you'll have to run the patcher again since the only thing it did was reverting some of the changes made by the patcher (Leaving the game in a broken state)

      Hi Guys,
      I'm fairly new to this, but I wanted to make some slight changed to the veterancy settings in the rules.ini and firestorm.ini. I was using the guide from this website: http://tiberian.iwarp.com/editingguidetots.htm to get me started. There are a few things I don't understand. There are VeteranAbilities and EliteAbilities, as well as a bundge of multipliers for veterancy bonuses (veteran factors). I figured out that to make the veteran factors work, they need to be in correspondence with the VeteranAbility or EliteAbility it corresponds with (e.g. "VeteranCombat" factor corresponds with the "FIREPOWER" VeteranAbility that is to be added in the unit characteristics under VeteranAbility or EliteAbility (if I'm off somewhere, please correct me).
      What I want to achieve is a veterancy bonus for FIREPOWER for example when the unit gains veterancy and I would like to give it another bonus when it turns elite. The sample below is how I tried to achieve that with the Hover MRLS:
      ---
      Name=Hover MLRS
      Category=AFV
      TargetLaser=yes
      FireAngle=32
      Prerequisite=GAWEAP,GARADR
      Primary=HoverMissile
      TooBigToFitUnderBridge=true
      Strength=230
      Armor=wood
      TechLevel=7
      CrateGoodie=yes
      Sight=7
      Speed=7
      Owner=GDI
      Cost=900
      Turret=yes
      Points=30
      ROT=5
      Crusher=no
      Crewed=yes
      Explosion=TWLT070,S_BANG48,S_BRNL58,S_CLSN58,S_TUMU60
      VoiceSelect=25-I000,25-I002,25-I004,25-I006
      VoiceMove=25-I012,25-I014,25-I016,25-I018,25-I022
      VoiceAttack=25-I014,25-I022,25-I024,25-I026
      VoiceFeedback=
      MaxDebris=4
      SpeedType=Hover
      Locomotor={4A582742-9839-11d1-B709-00A024DDAFD1}
      MovementZone=AmphibiousDestroyer
      ThreatPosed=25    ; This value MUST be 0 for all building addons
      DamageParticleSystems=SparkSys,SmallGreySSys
      VeteranAbilities=FASTER,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF,SIGHT
      EliteAbilities=SELF_HEAL,FASTER,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF,SIGHT
      ---
      When I test this, I found it only get's the bonus on first veterancy, but not a second time when going to Elite (even though that is what I put in the rules.ini).
      Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong and how should I achieve this? It is simply meant to make the whole deal of gaining veterancy and elite status more gratifying.
      Thanks!

      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
