video options help

Question

I have to reinstall cncnet every time I restart computer.  if I don't after restart, with my current cncnet options, when the game loads in skirm or online, it will auto flash back to my desktop.  The only way I can fix that is to uncheck "stretch to custom res 640x480."  but if I do that, then the mouse "floats" at warp speed.  the only way ive been able to get it to correct is to delete cncnet folder, restart, then reinstall.  Any thoughts about cncnet video options, or maybe video card/display options? I feel like ive tried every combination /variation to just play 640x480 with a normal mouse feel.

 

Thanks.. maybe it's easier to back/forth through email with screenshots?

So it will minimize the game on game start? Can you go back into the game when you click on the taskbar icon?

Are you trying to stretch 640x400 to 640x480?

Is the mouse just too fast or is it uncontrollable?

Does it look like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSswLamFvnU

 

When you reinstall the game, do you use a old installer or do you re-download the lastest one from the website?

--------------yes, and yes, although it will just go right back to desktop.  I have to right click and close, then try again with different settings or reinstall

Are you trying to stretch 640x400 to 640x480?

-------------------stretch is the default when I check 640x480res, if I do 480 res without check, I get the lighting mouse syndrome

Is the mouse just too fast or is it uncontrollable?

------------------------Fast is a good way to describe it, although its not playable because it's so inaccurate

When you reinstall the game, do you use a old installer or do you re-download the lastest one from the website?

------------I d/l from the website every time.

 

I think I have it narrowed down to happening after I plug into a dual monitor display at work. I always restart though before loading RA.

Well I found a problem with 640x480, but it only happens via the old config program (The one that shows via advanced settings)

Try to enable 640x480 via the other config program, it doesn't have the bug. If 640x480 is not in the list then press backspace and type it in manually.

 

In the worst case 640x480 is just not supported and it will automatically enable stretching (gives a different look and feel), in that case you could try to play around with the automatic mouse sensitivity scaling option in the advanced config

      Playing the mega compilation, I was supprised to find out that some missions had structures of TD ported to red alert. I am wondering how I can do the same? Is there a simple guide or a topic about this? I thought it would be neet to add the old power plant and the comm center instead of radar dome for the allies (would I lose the radar screen?). And can I work with this in RAED?

      Straight to point. I'm unable to play because keyboard and mouse clicks freeze / locks down when tanking or changing dpi.
      I suspect Anti-Cheat is giving me false positives if nothing else.I don't use macros or any cheating.

      Why do I think Anti-Cheat? I was looking why keyboard freezes and found this:

      "I downloaded a free program online to understand how it works. I used it a few times on gold medal challenge vs the computer only (without specs - I have never gone for the medal). I also used in a couple of online games to see if the program detects it or not, and warned the other player in advance. The good news is that it did in fact detect the program and my keyboard basically froze during the game."
      https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/6418-please-un-block-me/

      In Red Alert 1 skirmish keyboard and mouse clicks freeze / gets lockdown when

      1. tanking fast (bookmarks group Q) for good amount of time (hard to reproduce but it will happen sooner or later)
         Freeze/lockdown duration is about 2mins (MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEM)

      2. When in game and changing mouse sensitivity/dpi in logitech software (maybe, randomly sometimes can't easily reproduce)
         Freeze/lockdown duration is unknown, have to restart the game

      3. When in game and changing mouse dpi with mouse dpi button (maybe, randomly sometimes can't easily reproduce)
         Freeze/lockdown duration is unknown, have to restart the game

      I have tried to reinstall clean Windows, using different keyboard and mouse, disabling all buttons on mouse except left and right click, no extra buttons on keyboards.

      Nothing helps, it's especially annoying is when tanking, mouse sensitivity I can change when not in game.


      What is the solution? Can it be fixed? Please help.

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a red alert training map (2 players vs ai), but can't work out how to allow "ally in game" with the a button. Does anyone know how to do this?
      Currently, players must choose the same team. Then if they accidentally hit the ally button, they can't ally back again.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I just installed Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, and Tiberian Sun via the CnCNet installer, on my Linux machine running Ubuntu 18.04.01 LTS (x84_64 kernel). Tiberian Sun appears to run okay, but Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert both crash at launch, giving me a Program Error from Wine. It seem like this is probably a Wine configuration issue, but I'm not sure what changes to make in winecfg. I've attached the backtrace logs from Wine in hopes that someone could help me.
      Thanks!
