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.

      Hi.
      I'm playing CNC TS single player campain and loading saved game takes about 65 seconds on my system (Win8.1 64bit; Core i7 5820K; SSD). For such an old game waiting for more than a minute looks to me like something is wrong. What can i do to speed it up?
      Thanks!

      Hello there, i can't update game client, it said an dll can't be downloaded and to verify if firewall is blocking the client or to get help from forum, so here i am.
      I checked firewall and even created new rules so i'm 200% firewall will not block it. I know firewall have 2 panel, one where you just have to check some box to say ALLOW and another where you have to create firewall rule. It doesn't work, i have another pc where i get the update(Client update, archive, upload to drive then to my original pc).

      New forum member here, so please forgive me if I don't provide all the information needed on the first go-around here.
      I recently purchased Command and Conquer the Ultimate Collection from EA, installed Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge (and turned off the Origin overlay). I then downloaded and installed the CNCNet installer for YR, all of which went fine. When I open the CNCNet YR launcher, the menu screen comes up fine, and it says version 7.7 is available, so I tell it to go ahead and patch. It downloads a bunch of files, but when it gets to "Maps\Yuri's Revenge\xmp20mw.map", it fails with the message in the attached screenshot.
      I've tried the following things so far, to no avail:
      Going to Options -> Updater -> Force Update Renaming the .map file it's trying to download (it already exists in my YR maps directory) to something else so it hopefully wouldn't conflict when computing checksums. Uninstalling and re-installing the CNCNet YR program. I've also attached my logs, in case those help. I'm really at a loss here as to what to try next, honestly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Everyone,
      I've got kind of a weird issue that i saw mentioned online many times, but no fix or solutions for it.
      So, in order of steps, i installed C&C Tiberian Sun (which says includes Firestorm) from The First Decade collection, installed the First Decade Patch v1.03 Revision 4, then installed the TSPatch (from http://downloads.cncnet.org/TSpatch.exe ) and was able to get Tiberian Sun to work via the TSLauncher
      However, i finished the Tiberian Sun campaign and just went to try Firestorm and for some reason am getting the message "Unable to read scenario" when trying to start any campaign, GDI or Nod.

      I'm not sure if I'm missing any files or there's some other issue going on. Any help would be appreciated.
