[map editing] MESSAGE WHILE INGAME

Recommended Posts

Hey all, a question for all the map makers!!

While i was editing my custom map, i thought would be nice if a message at the start welcomes the players, as i saw many maps with this add (such as L.A.Z. Top vs Button and many others)

Problem is i dont know how to do it!

Hope someone can help me!!

greetings

Forgot to mention im talking about RA2 Yuris revenge! :)

Not sure if this is the same as in TS, but with TS maps you add your text under [Tutorial] 1=welcome to my map. 2=destroy enemy. Etc. U can insert that under ini editing in final alert or just add it in map file. Then use any event as a trigger event and trigger action 11 and parameter your text #. But thats for TS/final sun. not sure its the same for ra2 but i doubt its much different

RA2 is different indeed. Messages are read from a string table file, which can be edited by XCC mixer. but there is a general problem: there is only one string table file in the game, so you have to edit the whole thing and add it to your map to make it work. I don't know if the [Tutorial] thing still works, but I never saw it in any mission.

Fow who wants to know how i did it:

open Final alert > file > trigger editor 

New trigger, new event (choose 13 Elapsed Time...), New action (choose 11 Text Trigger...), and finally in parametric value u write the message

      There's an issue with  the default volume output for the game. I have multiple output audio sources to record on obs studio that separates the audio track into different channels (One for discord, games, and the microphone). In this case I have a virtual audio cable named Games (VB-Audio Cable A) that records the games audio. It works when I boot up the game first time but after closing and reopening the game, it no longer records the audio unless I restart my computer. Is there anyway to fix this?
      For the pic, the first one is the output and the second one is input.

      I installed the Origin C&C Generals version of Yuri's Revenge, then I installed Purple Alert. The Purple Alert launcher loads fine, but when I click "Launch Purple Alert" the C&C Generals "Ra2 or YR" launcher pops up. When I click YR it just loads the Vanilla YR. Is there any way to bypass something so that I can play Purple Alert? I played it years ago when I had the non C&C Generals version and it was the best mod ever!

      Hi,
      I log into cncet for yuri's revenge and when I go into the play online, i'm told that i've been banned and I have no idea why I would have been banned.
      I probably haven't played in months if not years and the odd times that I do play, its just with a couple of friends. I never post in the chat.
      Can someone help with unbanning me?
      Thanks
