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?

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

------------------------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

      Took a while, but I finally finished a full conversion mod for the original Red Alert. 
      Able Archer is to portray how Red Alert would have played out in the 1980s. I tried to make it as realistic as possible with the limited engine.
      Simply unzip the archive into your Red Alert folder. Make sure to backup existing EXPAND2.mix, hires1.mix, rules.ini, and aftrmath.ini.
      This was tested as working on Red Alert from TFD. It should work for every other platform, as it's only graphics replacements, and ini editing.
      Original campaign works, as do most of the extra missions. Ant missions are strange, as ant units are used for regular buildable units.
       
      Known bugs:
      Game crashes when loading more than one game. Simply restart the game and you can load another save.
      Transport Helicopters will attempt to leave the map when Spetsnaz board them. This is hard coded.
      Graphics Credits: AchromicWhite, ROB, Westwood Studios.
      If I forgot to credit you, please let me know so I can add you here.
