Red Alert 2 Screen Problems

Question

I have Windows 8.1 and uninstalled the KB to allow me to install RA2 and YR. I should have all the EXEs set to Run as Administrator and Windows XP SP3 compatibility. I went into RA2.ini and RA2MD.ini and, following internet instructions, changed the Video settings in both files to this (1920x1080 is the resolution my monitor is set to):

[Video]
ScreenWidth=1920
ScreenHeight=1080
StretchMovies=no
VideoBackBuffer=no

When I go into Red Alert 2, the game opens in full screen but the actual game contents are only in about half the screen (centered). To click any of the menu options I have to click off to the side. In other words, the click points aren't on the same resolution as the display.

When I go into Yuri's Revenge, the game opens in full screen and actually shows all the game contents in full screen. The menu buttons all click in the right places. When I start a game, everything there is in full screen too. However, I'm not able to scroll all the way to the right nor all the way to the bottom. The cursor simply wont go past a certain point, thus preventing me from clicking on a bunch important game components, like creating units.

Is there a maximum resolution RA2 and YR can handle? Or is there some other issue here?

      Trying to setup Origin RA2/YR on a new Macbook Pro 16".  Downloaded the software from Origin, installed latest YR CNC5 installer.  The new MBP16 has a Radeon Pro 5300M.  Following the issues I experienced:
      1. Using Origin, I can start the program but I see the application only on around 1/9 of the display on the top left side of the MBP16 display - the rest is black and obviously the game cannot be payed due to the small resolution.  Tried to look for solutions, changed to the latest ddraw.ddl I could find - no change
      2. Using CNC, I can set it up but I cannot run it in a full display mode .  The main screen shows in around 2/3 of the display and does not scale / stretch at all.  When running a skirmish, the game display is slightly bigger than the one I experience in point 1. above but only slightly and I cannot play it due to display/resolution limitations.
       
      Wonder if there is a specific Radeon setup I should use or any fixes that I should use to have a working game.
      Thanks in advance

      Hello,
      OP Tesla Coil weapon seems to be triggered only when Tesla Troopers is close. Is there a way to change when it is triggered?
      I even tried to add AssaultBolt weapon to units other than Tesla Troopers but it failed to trigger (although weapon is firing).
      Thank you.
