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.

      Registering Your Gamesurge Account on CnCNet
       
      NOTE: At this moment, this does NOT work on the Yuri's Revenge client.
       
      Registering your account on CnCNet is a very simple process, and is recommended. One of the main reasons we recommend registering is that you'll be able to combat potential impersonators. An impersonator is a person who pretends to be someone else for entertainment or fraud. You'll also be able to have awards tied to your account such as the Gold Medal.
       
      Registering is very easy, so here's where we'll begin. Our client is tied with our partners over at GameSurge.
       
      1. Go to: https://gamesurge.net/createaccount/

       
      2. Enter your information here. Your account name is the name that will be displayed when other players perform a whois on you. Your account name will NOT become your display name.

       
      3. Login to your email. Check your junk folder as well, as sometimes your email will put GameSurge's email into the junk folder. The email should arrive in a timely manner, it should not take more than 30 minutes. The instructions are also posted in the email.

       
      4. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. This can also be performed in the lobby as well. I do not recommend doing this as if you mess up, your information will be plastered all over the lobby. I have seen this happen.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv auth <account> <temporary password>
       
      Your temporary password is the password located in the email you received from GameSurge.
       
      5. You will receive a notification from AuthServ stating that your information has been accepted.

       
      You are now logged into your account.
       
       
      Changing Your Password
       
      1. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. You can also enter the command in the lobby.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv pass <old password> <new password>
       
      2. You will receive a notification from AuthServ in the lobby stating that your password has been successfully changed.

       
      NOTE: If you've pasted your account information in the lobby, change your password immediately!
       
       
      Logging Into Your Account
       
      1. Start a private message with a bot, or an admin. Enter the command in the chat window. You can also enter the command in the lobby.

       
      The command is:
      /authserv auth <account> <password>
       
      2. You will receive a notification from AuthServ in the lobby stating that you've been recognized.

       
      You are now logged into your account.
       
      When clicking onto a user, you'll receive information about this user. If this user has logged into their account, you will see a (No Fake) title applied to their name and the account they're logged into.

      Welcome mappers, players, modders and other people that are interested in mapping Tiberian Sun. If you want to know how to make your own maps, you are at the right place to do so! I am LucasSK (creator of [TIBERIUM RESURRECTION] and I am mapping Tiberian Sun for over than a year and a half now.  When I was learning how to do stuff and making my first projects, I encountered many problems with too little answers, so I thought it would be great idea to share my skills, knowledge and summarize FInalSun in few posts here, throughout this detailed tutorial series. In this part, I will talk about everything related to mapping in FinalSun. And now, without further ado, lets get into it! NOTE: This tutorial is made based on Temperate Theater of the map (not Snow).
      (Download FinalSun here: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/6720-final-sun-complete-fixed/)
      Blue part indicates stuff which I am going to talk about in 2nd part (coming soon)!

      ("lower" layout)
      Now, I would split these objects into 3 categories: Objects, Overlay, Ground, Other, so you can understand their features.
      Object - Characteristic / Description: They can be blocked by other Objects, aren't Overlay & Special and most of them are "3D" such as Vehicles, Infantry, Buildings, Trees, etc. Some of them are selectable by double-left-clicking on them and they are draggable by left-click-and-hold. Can be deleted by using Delete objects.
      Overlay - Characteristic / Description: Everything in Overlay & Special, can't be selected, often has weird field position (overlapping or near the edge of one field (not centered)). Can be deleted using Erase overlay.
      Ground - Characteristic / Description: Mostly "2D" items on the ground, on which you can place other Objects or Overlays + Water, Firestorm Defence. Can be deleted using Clear.
      Other - Characteristic / Description: Items you can't see in-game such as Waypoints, Celltags, etc.
      Vehicles, Aircraft, Infantry and Buildings have their "options" when you double-click on them. They are pretty much self-explanatory.

      TIPS:
      (NOTE: I will update these occasionally , so feel free to send me yours)
      - read Manual by pressing F1 while in FinalSun or Tips (Help -> Tip of the day)!
      - while making map, play it once in a while to check if everything is working!
      - make terrain as interesting as you can by putting multiple decorations there!
      - make sure things aren't overlapping!
      - FinalSun has many bugs, be patient and calm !
      If you have any questions, need help with anything, something's missing here, found incorrect statement or something incorrectly explained here, please let me know through Reply, Private Message or Discord (LucasSK#4124). This is my 1st tutorial, so feel free to review it and ask further questions about mapping 😉. At last, I recommend you checking my recent addon [TIBERIUM RESURRECTION] - https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/9186-wip-tiberium-resurrection/ - See ya soon in the 2nd part! Have a good day.
