Red Dawn (RA-1)

Recommended Posts

It needs to be [basic] UseCustomTutorialText= (Yes/No), after which it gets read in from the [Tutorial] section of the map. I think the format needs to be a ascending numeric keys starting from '1=', like:

 

[Tutorial]

1=dee

2=34e343

3=hihihi

 

The mission you uploaded doesn't have 'UseCustomTutorialText=' set correctly and I'm not sure if the '1=' then '247=' thing under [Tutorial] works. Though I'm not sure about the latter and I'm also not sure if my suggestions fix any crashes.

 

Give it a try. At first I patched the game to allow you to use an external Tutorial.INI file to read the tutorial text from but I figured I might as well modify it to read it from a [Tutorial] section in the map file itself, as it seems no one cares about localisation. It's probably where the confusion comes from.

I thought the UseCustomTutorialText= was like the old one that you needed to list a file. It works fine with R298 now that I know how to use it.

 

As you can see above Copper is traying to use a Custom Tutorial but it is not working. He will have to grab Patch #1 that updates to R298 as the P I BETA2 just crashes.

Thanks to Iran's and Allen's help, I was able to properly finish my first mission. Thanks, guys.

 

Anyone interested, you can find it under RA Singleplayer Maps.

I should have made the changes done to the embedded tutorial text feature clearer. My apologies.

You don't happen to have a master list of new things? At one time I think you did at Github but it no longer works.

It's working for me too, using Chrome. The site might have been down or experiencing an issue (maybe related to the recent OpenSSL Heartbleed bug).

 

Tell me if the issue persists, I'll just pastebin a text file equivalent.

Just wanted to mention, I had no trouble getting to see Iran's feature list. I used Chrome.

 

Very interesting stuff...

Yeah I just read the whole list.

It looks awesome, I see a lot of the stuff implemented towards the end of cncnet4 before cncnet5 was officially released.

I'm unable to enable small infantry too. I tick the option, but it does nothing. Didn't much matter to me, but it's strange.

The option is broke because I broke it in the Red Alert patch which Allen uses.

Well hopefully the small infantry can be fixed and the Jungle added. I'm also thing about doing a few of the C&C95 Funpark/Dinosaurs misison but I know there will be problems. I know the missions have some odd bugs/logic and RA1 dosn't have need dino logic.  Nyerguds should be able to tell me about the odd bugs/logic and as for the Dinos I can find 4 non-turret vehicles that I can Image= for the missions.

I think the main thing about the dinos from C&C95, (velociraptors at least) healed up everytime they attacked an infantry unit

Hi, perhaps I can help.

 

Try this: Place a shortcut of RAED on your desktop (or anywhere it suits you). To open the mission file, drag and drop it over RAED's shortcut. You can, instead of the shortcut, use the .exe itself if it suits you.

 

There is another way, though it doesn't work with my 2nd PC. Right-click on the mission file (or any .ini file), and choose Open With. Select a program to open the .ini with - in this case RAED. Do not choose to open with this same program every time.

If you later right-click on the file and choose Open With, you can directly select RAED - at least this works on my primary PC.

 

The first method should be more straightforward, though.

      Hi everyone,
      I know there several posts out there on Virtual Machine LAN networking, but I haven't come across any referencing VMware ESXi.  Was hoping I could start one.
      Here's what I'm trying to do...
      I have a ESXi host running vSphere 6.5.  On it are several VM guests running Windows 10 (build 1903).  All VMs are using VMNET3 virtual NICS, w/8GB RAM, and quad core vprocs.
      I'm having a heckuva time getting LAN networking to run for any CNC game (Dune 2000, TD, TS, RA - doesn't matter, symptoms are the same).
      On the VM, all games install successfully using the latest builds.  All will run without error too.  
      On the example below, I'm running Dune 2000.  As you can see in 'screenshot 1', it does not allow me to join or create a new game.  What's interesting is that the IRC client does not appear to load despite being previously installed.   The Windows firewall is turned off.
       
      Now, by contrast, on a regular laptop - the same game installer will allow me to create a new game or join an existing one.
      I welcome your thoughts.

      Hey! I hope this is the right place for my question;
      I started to play around with settings of a given tower defense map, but I could not find the description of these settings in the rules .ini(or I have missed it?!) so if you'd know, please let me know how do they work in the comments. I managed to figure out how to increase building speed, and the unit count of each wave, but I couldn't figure how to set frequency, wave count and so on. These are these setting (map name is: "TD 4.2 PRO FULL VERSION"):

      I figured that the first number after the unit type sets the number of units each wave, but for example wave 1 has 30 waves, and I have no idea what sets that. Big thanks in advance!

      Another day another question...
       
      How many triggers and teams can be created in one map?
       
      I created a map witch crashes whenever I want to start it... I can't find any mistake. Maybe there are simply to many triggers for the system? (More than 100)

      Thanks for your help!
