I'm lost... what's causing trouble with alt tab, the patch or the graphic optimization? If the latter, why are we discussing it here?

The patch.
For me - only when I am in the lobby or in the game room.

Eh? It's the graphics optimization guide that seems to sometimes cause an error in the alt tab function. I don't know if it's red alert 2.exe thats responsible for this or the original game... Haven't tested without the patch.

I might modify the guide soon to include a fix when I find one.

So you can't alt tab when you have the patch installed?

Have you used martins optimization? If so, un-do it and see if it still happens. If not, it will no doubt be addressed by Olaf.

Alright I might have to cut these posts out of the topic as it will cause confusion with the patch.

Alt-tab issue (and also freezing points screen after the game) appeared after patch installation (long before optimization), so i'm not sure if it has anything to do with Martin's toys.

Maybe for some, for me patch caused that problem.

Alt tab issue is caused by the 'graphics optimizations' on windows 7 and Vista operating systems.

The freezing on score screen is caused by the uploading of screenshots.


I hope this makes it more clear.

Did you use the graphics optimization for all of them?
It works for all those games, though I haven't tested the Alt tab on the other two.

@Olaf:

If it's not too much to ask, with your next release of the RA2.0.0.2 patch, can you please have an option to disable the SS taker but still have everything else such as extra maps enabled? I'm just asking mainly because of my tourny that you're probably aware of that I'm currently running. At times, the match will be really smooth, then all of a sudden a huge pause occurs. My guess is that 2 or more people in the match are taking a SS at the same time. I noticed this pause during a tourny that I ran last year on YR where at the end of it, I asked for a SS from all 4 players and the game came to a complete halt for about 5 seconds. I'd very much like to be able to record a match without me (the observer) taking SSs. This way, at the most, only 2 players can take SSs at the same time.

You can still make the patch a requirement for the HOF, you just have to let people know that the SS taker must be enabled (which it will be by default).

People just need to learn to use their computers and stop running a lot of bs on them, like toolbars, search bars or any other **** that runs in the background on your computer.
I've been able to spam the screenshot key without any lag thanks to olaf's latest updates. So the patch is fine, just the people's computers that's not working optimally or smoothly.

Taking a SS without the patch takes much longer than with the patch. Be sure to install the latest version (no PNG, no XGS).
If that's still not good enough, use http://xwis.net/temp/xwis.dll with delayed uploading.

Does the patch auto update now? If not, it'd be a good idea. Also, Olaf, not that you're planning to do it, but if you were, how long would it take you to modify this patch to work on YR?

I believe it does- thats why it takes a bit longer to start the game when using the patch. And making it work on YR would be great but i think yuris is considered as a lost cause now...

The maps are automatically updated, the code isn't. Yet.

Also, Olaf, not that you're planning to do it, but if you were, how long would it take you to modify this patch to work on YR?

It's hard to predict that kind of things.

How long did the first release of the patch take to make, if you don't mind me asking? Do you think, now that you're more familiar with the internal functions of RA2, and if time allows it, you'll be able to make one for YR? Also, how long will it take you to get annoyed with my questions?

Years :p

Technically, yes

Also, how long will it take you to get annoyed with my questions?

Probably takes quite a while too

Years :p

:D but seriously, how long? I'm not asking you to make one, I'm just really curious. If I played YR enough, which I don't, I'd probably pay you a few days worth to work on it, maybe weeks, but definitely not 'years'! :D
