Redalert update timing out. Can't update, can't play

Question

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.


Please help.

Don't really have a solution for your problem yet, but I added another workaround for you so you can continue playing until the problem is fixed.

Type this in the game lobby and then restart it:

/install doug2

Yeah the map download issue is probably the same as the one from the updater. I don't really know what it's about though since you're the only one having that issue...

 

You can also workaround the map problem by downloading the maps manually from here

http://mapdb.cncnet.org/search.php?game=ra&age=0&search=gold rush

 

You can replace the  "gold rush" at the end of the url with something else to search for a specific map, download the .zip and extract it into your game folder.

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.

      I was just wondering but is this an issue that is on the team's radar?
       
      If you take my name Bane_ for example on this month's RA ladder, there is a total mix of average fps for my games (as low as 43 fps even...). By way of comparison, if I'm playing normally on CnCNet I can quite happily be in 8 player games with it running at full speed without any issues at all. Multiple other people suffer from the same issue if you go checking through the names so I'm not sure what's up really.
       
      It isn't lag but when a game decides it's going to average more around say 40-50 fps, you experience it as a periodic hitching all the way through the match (right from the word go so it doesn't worsen as more and more units and structures are built) and it leads to a pretty unpleasant game as it messes around with your build timings and Q and so on in what should be a fast-paced game.
       
      Is there any obvious culprit that could be causing dropped frames like that? Restarts don't seem to help, neither does running the quickmatch client directly with CnCNet closed and as few other programs open as possible.
