C&Cnet client screen resolution bug plus mods using it.

Question

I have problem with C&Cnet client using mods all force native screen resolution witch is 3840x2160 and i cant change it since it reverts manual change in ini file back to native and only way i can use custom screen resolution is by making ini read only. I add pictures of my problem i only hope that there is a way to fix this.

This might be a permissions issue. Have you tried running the client as admin?

Sorry but no. I play thous on main machine still i have no clue how this happened exepct os is windows 10 so i guess updates mess up things or something and no help form their part either. Because of this mess i cant play mp mod with my friends since native screen resulution makes thing tiny no joke. But if theres a way to force client to run in choosen resulution with ini edit then no problem since this can be made read only but where.

Done tryed no errors, no drive bugs either. Plus i keep every thing up to date to avoid problems  in the first place. It is like some is trying to kill life support of good old game with updates. No way to fix even old drives wont bring back screen resulution options any more it worked on my old laptop but not any more. Windows 10 is latest build.

clientogl.exe uses OpenGL for the backend. By default the client launches clientdx.exe which is using DirectX.

Just make a shortcut to clientogl.exe or change the shortcut that you normally use.

      Hello everybody.
      I haven't been active in the Command & Conquer community for some time, it's nice to see that it is still thriving and that there is plenty of online activity, with that being said, a friend of mine has brought something to my attention that I wanted to query with the current staff. 
      In the Tiberian Sun Client there appear to be some maps that are being used that were maps that I had initially made exclusively for Twisted Insurrection. Some of these maps started off as remakes of maps from other games like Red Alert 2 such as the ones titled Rocky Road, Twinside and Redemption. I am not particularly bothered about these for the reasons stated earlier, despite the fact that they were remade from the ground up, but they are still shamelessly pulled from Twisted Insurrection with minor edits to make them compatible with Tiberian Sun, they even use the same alternative name that I gave them as opposed to the names of the maps they were based on which shows they were directly taken from the mod. 
      My main gripe is that there is also the map Vinifera Valley which has been a Twisted Insurrection exclusive map that I created quite some time ago. It appears that it is in circulation at the moment as part of an official update to the Tiberian Sun Client , yet, no credit is given to myself or to Twisted Insurrection itself for use of the map anywhere as far as I can tell. I have checked with the active members of the Twisted Insurrection team as of the moment and, as far as we know, nobody asked permission to use these maps and no credit has been given. May I ask why this is and what has happened here?

      Thanks.

      Hi guys. I am playing with my friends and some of them don’t see the little map top right. Is it related with maps that I made on Final Alert? Can you help me

      I've just installed Yuri's Revenge from origins and then CNC to play online. Everytime I join a match, whenever the host starts the game my computer will act like it's doing something and then bring me right back to the match screen and say I "returned from the game". Anyone have a fix for this?
