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

      It is a really shame but I have to report that in China there are many guys cheating in mutiplayer games in Mental Omega on CnCNet. This makes many players fear to join a pubilc game lobby.The situation is not good at all.Are there any ways to prevent cheating?
      I have tried one cheat tool. It has many cheat functions but most of them can not function in mutiplayer games.I think it must be the result of the hard working of the WestWood studio and you CnCNet groups to eradicate cheating.
      However,there are still a few functions that still works.The cheat tool, which seems to cheat through editing the data in computer's memory,can still do such things:
      1.Change the sight of the unit you select,then make most of the shroud removed.
        How much shroud one player has removed seems won't sync with other players so it won't cause sync error?
      2.Break the limits of building structures. That's to say, cheaters can build everywhere.
        Maybe the judgement on building structures is local and won't cause sync error?
      3.Break the limits of tech level or other things to produce a unit.
        I have no idea how it managed to do this,but the cheater can build every units registered in ini files,ignoring building limits.

      Meanwhile,players with modified ini files seem still able to start games with others and the warning "the player modified his game" seems appear for everyone,including innocent ones.We players have no idea when join in a public game lobby.
      Cheat problems are serious nowadays in Mental Omega.Are there any ways to prevent these kinds of cheating? We players need your technical help.

      I only got to play C&C Sole Survivor a little while before the servers went down and didn't get to try all its modes but it was pretty cool having every unit controlled by a player.   Plus some of the more elusive units made an appearance.   Isn't it the only game where you could play as a Viceroid, or at least the classic style Viceroid?  Hopefully it wouldn't be too big a project to build it into the remasters.
