Any decent guides on modding RA1? Also i'm after a decent Map Maker. I used to use final alert back in the day and you could generate a map from a .bmp image. Are there any map editors for RA1 that do the same? I have seen the sticky thread on links but the Red alert 1 link is dead.
Thanks in advance.
Checking for updates screen appears and does nothing.
Then I get a dialog box that says:
"Update failed... Please check your connection, Anti-Virus and Firewall settings!
The operation has timed out"
I have turned off the virus and firewall and the same thing happens.
Funkyfresh helped me a few weeks ago with the last update.
If memory serves, he gave me a direct link but I can't remember exactly.
I have already tried http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/CnCNet5Version.txt and http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ and https://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ with no love (403 Forbidden).
Also while joining a game with a map that I don't have, it fails to download the new map so I can't play on any new maps either.
As I'm sure you all know, TS had a rough release, with lots of features either not fully polished, or cut from the game entirely. This includes features that WW clearly was not happy with, since they greatly altered them in RA2 (Jumpjet Troopers vs Rocketeers, just to name one example).
I recently introduced a friend to these older C&C games, and while he likes TS, we both could not look past a lot of shortcomings. Thus, I wanted to know if there exists a mod that tries to fix/restore the content of the game to improve gameplay, i.e a sort of "quality of life" mod.
I know there's plenty of total conversion mods and "remasters", but I'm looking for something that sticks as close as possible to the original, and merely improves on the less impressive features. TS Retro is a good example, introducing some neat features and fixes, but I'd prefer a mod that doesn't add new content (beyond stuff that was meant to be in TS in the first place)
Below I listed a few of the bigger issues we had (we gathered them based on the GDI campaign, didn't get to the Nod campaign yet, so it's not fully comprehensive):
Orca Fighter (serious AI issues, and you need dozens of them to kill something reliably, I can assume the Nod Harpy has similar problems) Jumpjet Troopers (they take forever to get in position and shoot at anything, require constant micro to stop them from landing and getting killed) Air units in general being horrible at revealing terrain and having awkward mobility Anti-armor weapons dealing pathetically low damage to infantry, and non-AP weapons doing almost nothing to armor Flames and railguns getting caught on slopes Unit voices (not enough variety, the TS Retro mod had an amusing solution for this) Firestorm walls do not work This is all that came to mind off the top of my head. Any suggestions?
I was playing Tiberian Sun, (as it is my favorite game in the Tiberium series.) and I noticed some problems, mainly this one. I was playing TS's First Decade release patched with TSpatch and running it using the automatic/GDI renderer. On my first attempt to play the GDI campaign, the game took longer than expected to load, but the first mission worked fine, but afterward the score screen had some graphical ghosting issues, but it didn't mess up anything, I moved on to the second mission and everything went fine in till the end, when "mission accomplished" was supposed to appear, the screen went white, the CGI cutscene plays, then the game automatically closes. I made one more attempt and the same happened minus the glitchy score screen. IDK what's happening, can somebody please fix this or tell me how I can?
Please respond soon.

I tried installing the SP campaign, etc for Tiberian Sun today and I got this strange popup:
"Linux/Mac: Please make sure either Wine+winetricks dotnet 2.0 or Crossover is installed to be able to play online".
I tapped OK since I'm not going online, then it gives me the list of things I want to install. I select all, and it won't install them. It gets to 99% and says it can't install them, so I uncheck everything and just select Single Player missions. it works! Weird. Map editor installed fine too on a second go-around as well as desktop shortcuts. It seems to not want to install music or movies... grr.
So it goes back to the main menu and I pick Single Player, and I just get the Tiberian Sun main menu in an all-black screen (I can hear the ambient music, the buttons when I roll my mouse over them, but it's just all black). What's the deal here?
