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



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.

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.
