Question

So I managed to get my Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge game working fine on my PC with little issue, in the main menu at least. But when I load a game up and open up the in game menu (keep in mind that everything is running as it should, even moving units around), some buttons will not show up and be overlapping. I see Save Game and Delete Game, but when I click on Save Game, It takes me to the Options Menu, and when I click on Delete Game, it takes me to the Abort Game menu. The Resume Game button works just fine. I have done all of the compatibility checks that I needed to do to make the game run and still this problem shows up, even on my Mental Omega mod.

My system is running Windows 7 with a Ryzen 5 1500 and a Radeon RX 550 Series with dual DDR4 16 GBytes running at 1197.1 MHz.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

If you are experiencing slow or choppy gameplay whilst playing on CnCNet, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem.

  1. Install the CnCNet client 
  2. This will look for your existing game directory.
  3. Once installed run CnCNetYRLauncher.exe or the shortcut supplied.
  4. Click "Options"
  5. Select "Display" and under the render options, select a new renderer. Commonly, TS-DDRAW works best.
  6. Click Save, and launch Skirmish. 
  7. Play a game with the AI. If the gameplay is fast then this renderer will likely be the best for you.
  8. If it hasn't worked, repeat from step 5 until you find a renderer that works best with your system.

Failing the above, ensure your video drivers are up-to-date. You are running a suitable resolution the game can handle.

Have you tried using the other renderers in the list and trying those?

This problem might appear on Win 7 by wrong DPI screen setting. Try set your screen scale to 100%.

DDWrapper causes a freeze when I go to the escape menu, everything else has the same issue persist. I even went to the lowest resolution setting and the problem still persists.

I have the same issue on Win7, DPI is at normal 100%.

Happens in vanilla game, and cncnet modded game.

Some buttons are overlapping/on top of other buttons.

Resolutions also have no effect on buttons. Renderers have no effect too.

This happens in vanilla and TFD and cncnet skirmish, and cncnet modded singleplayer...

And I can't get Game Speed slider in Campaigns...

      Hello there, i can't update game client, it said an dll can't be downloaded and to verify if firewall is blocking the client or to get help from forum, so here i am.
      I checked firewall and even created new rules so i'm 200% firewall will not block it. I know firewall have 2 panel, one where you just have to check some box to say ALLOW and another where you have to create firewall rule. It doesn't work, i have another pc where i get the update(Client update, archive, upload to drive then to my original pc).

      New forum member here, so please forgive me if I don't provide all the information needed on the first go-around here.
      I recently purchased Command and Conquer the Ultimate Collection from EA, installed Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge (and turned off the Origin overlay). I then downloaded and installed the CNCNet installer for YR, all of which went fine. When I open the CNCNet YR launcher, the menu screen comes up fine, and it says version 7.7 is available, so I tell it to go ahead and patch. It downloads a bunch of files, but when it gets to "Maps\Yuri's Revenge\xmp20mw.map", it fails with the message in the attached screenshot.
      I've tried the following things so far, to no avail:
      Going to Options -> Updater -> Force Update Renaming the .map file it's trying to download (it already exists in my YR maps directory) to something else so it hopefully wouldn't conflict when computing checksums. Uninstalling and re-installing the CNCNet YR program. I've also attached my logs, in case those help. I'm really at a loss here as to what to try next, honestly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I'm having issues with my client. It was working fine, but for some reason it isn't allowing me now to continue with the games because it keeps crashing. Also, it isn't adding any 'underscores' next to my name, but is only bringing me back to the lobby.
      Any advise on this, please?
      Thanks.
