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?

      Looking for testers for a new release of TS-DDraw. 
       
      Download: https://github.com/CnCNet/ts-ddraw/releases
       

      Should work for Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. 
       
       
      For all those who don't know TS-DDraw, this is what it can do: 
      Working windowed mode without having to change windows to 16bit 
      Makes the game running smooth on Windows XP / 7 / 8 / 10  and wine (Need testers for Vista!) 
      Can fix black screens, invisible menus and other issues
       
       
       
       
       
      ddraw.zip

      Just updated to latest release, haven't changed any settings on the machine and can no longer play. Games starts then as soon as I start to try to play everything locks up.
      EDIT: If I set game to CnC Draw it works, DDwrapper no longer works.

      there is only one way to see their names while opening file and searching "Basic" in.

      is there any basic way to know while wandering in your map folder? i really need that

      Hi at all,
      I can not play yuris revenge on cnc net. I can host a game or join a game and after loading and a few seconds, there is an connection error. 
      I searched a bit in the forums and found a similar problem, but there was the problem, the people were in egypt. But I'm from Germany ;-)
      Now what i tried until now:
      - Virus Protection is Sophos Home Premium, i excluded the whole folder, where the game is installed
      - I added every *.exe in the folder to windows firewall
      - I completely reinstalled the game from origin and cncnet client.
      - Installed everything on my Laptop, no success.
      -> Very interesting: I can play it when only my Computer and Laptop are in the online(!) match. But they are in the same network.
      Maybe it was more, but i can't remember 😅
      There is a log File, i think there is an interesting line (last one):
      08.04. 19:22:36.891    Contacting tunnel at 178.32.35.210:51339
      08.04. 19:22:36.892    Downloading from http://178.32.35.210:51339/request?clients=2
      08.04. 19:22:37.033    Added port 12346
      08.04. 19:22:37.036    Added port 31598
      08.04. 19:22:37.043    SRM: NOTICE #cncnet-yr-game1897848 :START 841920;Saesch;0.0.0.0:12346;(removed player name);0.0.0.0:31598
      Why is there no IP?
      OS is Windows 10 Pro
      CNCnet Version: 4.26
      I will not post hardware details, because i think its not an hardware issue.
      Thanks a lot for your help.
      And sorry for my english🙈
