Olaf can u explain to me why i only have problems on xwis ?

I tryed to play a game vs marsh on xwis and  it failed 3 times.

I went to GR and it worked perfectly (same red alert 2,the xwis version) ?

This shows it has nothing to do with nivdea card .... or my red alert 2 or my computer or settings ?

No I can't..

XWIS version works fine on other PCs.
This shows it has nothing to do with XWIS version.. ;)

Seriously, that kind of logic just doesn't work. We know nV driver versions affect RA2.

You also failed to post exactly what fails for you. Is it connecting to others, is it performance?

If this problem is not resolved it will be really a pity for xwis because many players who are active can no longer

connection indd,it goes to loading screen,then get blackscreen then get back to loading screen and so on and on(loads very slow).Choppy gameplay

Yesterday i tryed a game vs marko and it was just fine.

When i get this problem on xwis and i move to GR i need to restart computer,coz what ever happend effected GR 2.

Then i go to GR and it works good.

When its a driver problem why dont i have this problem on GR ?


if u like i can stream and login in xwis ?

GR is a LAN emulator, so it's unaffected by firewalls and routers..

It's firewall and router.. what router are you using? Are you able to run it in bridge mode to test?

modem = ubee evw321b

Heb net gebeld met ziggo en deze zeggen dat er niks veranderd is en dat het toch echt aan de server moet leggen.

En als je me wil helpen met dit soort dingen(bridge mode to test) zal je me stap voor stap meoten uitleggen wat ik moet doen.

Ziggo heb een hard reset voor me gedaan en ik ga zo weer proberen.

Heeft niets geholpen

Ik heb net een nieuwe ra2 op me XP harde schijf gezet en precies hetzelfde probleem.

delete ur ra2 everything.

Close everything.(no other programs running)

Download the xwis version.

Don't change anything.(ra2.ini)

And start.

I have win 7 pro and the compatility=win 7.

This worked for me

 

 

What i just found out is that when i have run other program's GR or CNC i need to restart computer and then with a clean start run RA2(xwis),else i having problems 2

1. I did and it's not..
2. No
3. Sure

I just don't get why you're expecting me to solve all *your* problems.
Yes, the game has trouble with NAT and 'weird' internet connections, but it works ok for a lot of people.
Yes, LAN emulation software like GR etc avoids those issues.
No, that doesn't mean it's caused by XWIS.
Yes, the game has trouble with Windows 10, 8 and sometimes 7.
No, that doesn't mean it's XWIS' fault..

Reinstalled a driver and this seems to have solved the problem.
