RA1 freezes in game-menu

Question

Hi.

I've installed RA1 the full game (single campaign missions), but without the game-videos.

I run win10.

Whenever i start the game, it freezes in the game-menu.

I've tried different video-resolutions, 3d-acceleration methods (D3D, OpenGL, DirectDraw) but none works.

I've tried windows internal compatibility function (trying out both win98/ME and vista) but none works.

Any advice?

Best regards :)

How exactly can I reproduce this? I mean, how did you install the game with missions but without the game videos?

 

Are you trying to play missions or are you talking about the options menu in a multiplayer game?

I just re-installed the game.

Full web-install + CD2 (i want to play single campaign)

When i open up the game, the game freezes (app does not respond) in the main-menu of the game.

Only way to quit is by killing the task in Windows Task Manager.

Did it also happen with the default settings?

I see you changed the resolution, enabled windowed mode and it looks like your disabled the window border?

 

would be nice if you could attach your ddraw.ini and redalert.ini to your next post in case it only happens with these custom settings

 

All compatibility modes needs to be disabled btw, otherwise the game doesn't work properly

      We're going to have a ladder map poll soon, you can suggest maps that should be added to the poll here.
      If it's a new/unknown map or a modified version of a original map then please add a screenshot.

      I was trying to be careful and the map worked in its early versions. The version have now is causing myself and other players to desync about 5 minutes into the game with this custom map. The map is kinda fun and different. Tried to take inspiration from starcrafts style. Its not too radical. But
      I think my questions are what makes the red alert 1 (include aftermath) dsync online? Consider its custom map, unit alterations, image changes. Worse case scenario I'll release it as a single player skirmish map. I make use of the spawn file that holds images of c&c dawn units. The RAedit adds triggers. I tried deactivating the triggers and teams hopping that was the mighty fix. Well didn't seem to do it.

      We removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina).
      Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina.
       
       
       
      If you're running a older version of macOS you can still try to install the games (C&C / Red Alert / Tiberian Sun) manually:
       
      Step 1: Install wine-stable https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS
      Step 2: Download the following script, right-click and select Open https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet.command.zip
       
       
       
      If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15:
