New TS-DDraw release (Tiberian Sun / Red Alert 2 / Yuri's Revenge)

Recommended Posts

Yes, you can minimize the game with ts-ddraw and there are no issues :D

So if I understood this correctly, for you friend on windows 7 it doesn't work well, the game runs slow? (it lags?)

Somehow (either CnCNet Client) updated the ts_ddraw for ra2:yr & now I can't [minimize] alt+tab to the trainer, could you please guide me & link me on how to install the old ts_ddraw ? I found a Cheat Engine script for God mode, I want to continue using it by minimizing the game to the trainer. Thanks in advance. :] Please add minimize support to your new ddraw.dll !!!

Pretty sure that's against CnCNet rules. :)

No cheats for you ^^

Seriously, try to play the game without any CE scripts/cheat tables and stuff like that, it's much better and the game is fun anyway. If you can't switch around applications via alt + tab, just use a different render.

I tried all the Renderers, didn't work.

It's because of the anti-cheat.

Ohhh thank you very much for clearing that up ! I play with the CncNet Client anyway —I guess the 100k credits limit sorta makes up for it.
P.S: Does the anti-cheat affect the vanilla version of the main Yuri executable too ?

TS-DDRAW doesn't seem to work for me anymore on RA2, Windows 10 1803. Menus work fine, as does the loading screen, but once I load into the game, I see the skirmish setup screen and hear ingame noises.

Here's the screen I see once loading completes. Only thing I can do is ALT-F4 out of it and close the game.

Are you using the most recent version from here: https://github.com/CnCNet/ts-ddraw/releases/tag/1.1.4.8 ?

Just an update. A complete reinstall of RA2 fixed this.

Actually not true. Issue is back and occurs when I select a resolution any higher than 800x600. I'm on Windows 10, if that narrows anything down.

Same issue here as well, running Windows 10 1809. Changing the renderer between OpenGL and GDI doesn't help either.

Something is messing up in Yuri's Revenge when it tries to change the resolution and go in-game.

I just checked, I actually got the problem too. Game starts up and menu is centered to the screen surrounded by black (That's actually not supposed to happen). When the gameplay starts it tries to change the resolution and fails in the same way shown in the screenshot provided by @Jezebel

 

Tested this on win10 1803 using gamemd.exe (aka Yuri's Revenge single player)

 You guys can try to use version 1.1.4.5, that one seems to work fine.

Excactly said, from 1.1.4.5-1.1.4.8, every file can not run! I must use a ddraw.dll made by toni spets long time ago, it can use normally. Forgive my English, I am Chinese.

Latest one that works for me is the experimental pre-release released April 24.

Hi,I use this version (TS-DDraw.dll V1.1.4.14) to feel better, but in the Skirmish battle mode map preview effect color distortion than this old version (TS-DDraw.dll V1.1.3.3), Sometimes the menu disappears when you store the game. I don't know if I can improve it? Thank you!

      Hello! Jezebel, bright_hawkins , cac32I have been researching Red Alert 2 / Yuri's Revenge (AI) for more than 15 years and found that a bug in PadAircraft has not been solved (Skirmish mode): for example,

 [TaskForces]

0=4, A-10 (fighter)

 [ScriptTypes] 
0=0,3
1=0,6
2=49,0
3=0,7
4=0, 2
5=0,1

At this time, more (more than 300 fighters) fighters (8House) appeared in the game map, human players + 4AI (House) vs 3AI (House), when the game played 3AI (House) opponents only 1AI left (House), this fighter is prone to jumping all the time and cannot take off normally, If this time to destroy the airport, the game overflows. If this [TaskForces] group has 0=1, A-10 (fighter), this time to destroy the airport, the game will not overflow, you can continue to play. Please forgive me, the English of a Chinese.

I can confirm this.

Running Windows 10 Pro x64 and playing Yuri's Revenge in a borderless window.
+ Good FPS
+ Good Latency
+ Fixes ALT+TAB
+ Doesn't lag the game while in the background (tabbed out).

- Poor scaling on bilinear, game looks a small bit blurry.
- ALT+F4 doesn't close game on loading screen when a player doesn't load.

Contact funky about the scaling and alt+f4 issue. The alt+f4 issue should be easy to fix.

      Hello everybody.
      I haven't been active in the Command & Conquer community for some time, it's nice to see that it is still thriving and that there is plenty of online activity, with that being said, a friend of mine has brought something to my attention that I wanted to query with the current staff. 
      In the Tiberian Sun Client there appear to be some maps that are being used that were maps that I had initially made exclusively for Twisted Insurrection. Some of these maps started off as remakes of maps from other games like Red Alert 2 such as the ones titled Rocky Road, Twinside and Redemption. I am not particularly bothered about these for the reasons stated earlier, despite the fact that they were remade from the ground up, but they are still shamelessly pulled from Twisted Insurrection with minor edits to make them compatible with Tiberian Sun, they even use the same alternative name that I gave them as opposed to the names of the maps they were based on which shows they were directly taken from the mod. 
      My main gripe is that there is also the map Vinifera Valley which has been a Twisted Insurrection exclusive map that I created quite some time ago. It appears that it is in circulation at the moment as part of an official update to the Tiberian Sun Client , yet, no credit is given to myself or to Twisted Insurrection itself for use of the map anywhere as far as I can tell. I have checked with the active members of the Twisted Insurrection team as of the moment and, as far as we know, nobody asked permission to use these maps and no credit has been given. May I ask why this is and what has happened here?

      Thanks.

      Hi guys. I am playing with my friends and some of them don’t see the little map top right. Is it related with maps that I made on Final Alert? Can you help me

      I've just installed Yuri's Revenge from origins and then CNC to play online. Everytime I join a match, whenever the host starts the game my computer will act like it's doing something and then bring me right back to the match screen and say I "returned from the game". Anyone have a fix for this?
