Question

Whenever you run RA2YR (or even TS), can you set the resolution of at least 2560x1600?


If so, do you have a resolution option that increases the 2560 width but not the 1600 height?


Does that option work? How far can you widden the resolution without increasing the height of 1600?

 

Note: Included MO, TI and DTA because they use the TS/YR engine, and so are included in this question. It's a question of engine limits.

In TS and YR, 3840x2160 is supported. I haven't tested bigger than that. The dimensions in window mode aren't restricted. In full screen mode, you have to use a resolution that your monitor supports. In TS you can edit SUN.INI, YR edit RA2MD.ini,  set ScreenWidth and ScreenHeight and set Video.Windowed=Yes.

That's odd.


Last time I played around with CnCNet (or XWIS or the GAMEMD from TFD for that matter) 1600 was the max height...

Unless it has something to do with fullscreen being limited. But apparently the game can't handle displaying more cameos than the 1600 height allows...

Could you provide a screenie?

That's right, it doesn't work with the unpatched gamemd. Works fine via cncnet mutliplayer though

For some reason 2560x1600 shows 1 more row of cameos (or available cameo containers) than 4096x2160??? That's strange, probably has something to do with the aspect ratio 🤔. Anyhow, as FunkyFr3sh said, ultra high definition resolutions only work with the CnCNet versions of the games. Here are a few matches played in 4096x2160p...

That wasn't actual gameplay :P

But thanks for the info. I'll see what I can do on my side. Shame I don't have a huge monitor...

There is only limited memory available for the sidebar, if it's getting too big then it will start to overwrite what ever variables are stored after it. That's why he managed to get more icons, it seems to work (it actually doesn't), it's just that it does already overwrite something but it isn't causing a crash. If he would be playing like this then it would probably fail somewhere, maybe some graphical glitches will show up or the game is going out of sync (Could be anything, I don't know what it overwrites).

The XWIS version of YR works fine @ 2560 x 1440.
Without any ddraw.dll on Windows 10 Pro x64, besides missing menu buttons.

      So I was playing Dawn of the Tiberium Age with some friends and we do get some regular crashes, the save feature is nice but we had a final crash in our third game that corrupted the entire line of them. Is there a patch or compatibility option we're missing? Could it be my router? is it just like this? We all use Windows 10 I believe.
      Thanks in advance for anyone that can help us! We love this project, 6 of us just discovered it, and would like it to work enough for us to finish a longer game. Thanks!

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.

      I recently downloaded "Twisted Insurrection", unzipped it, and ran it as admin. Nothing happens. I even rebooted the computer. Still nothing.
      Am I missing something here?

      I am having an issue where the game is installed correctly using wine and loads the game right up to the CNCnet menu for version 5.5 but each time I try to join a game, create a game, play a skirmish or anything past the point of "Launch Game" will immediately kick me back to the menu.
      I've been tinkering with it for a while and I'm not sure if its related to the game itself, the CnCNet client, or maybe I made a mistake somewhere along the way.
      Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated and good vibes shall flow forth for your generosity.
