Hey guys. thank you for the replies.
I wrote that message too quickly yesterday.
So it was working with the CD version, i connected to someone and played a laggy game and got engi rushed lol. Thats all cool, as I felt stupid with the mouse buttons all wrong. Used to starcraft 2 buttons lol.
I then came here and downloaded the patch for windows 8,10 to speed things up. Not realising I have windows 7. After that, it wouldn't connect to anyone. I installed the xwis version, and same thing. I might of actually installed xwis first, then tried that patch. I can't recall. Since then, it just doesn't connect.
I just installed gameranger, and it works on that.
I did a few things to sort out the lag, but its still there, but not as bad.
Even skirmish is laggy.
I have a Mac mini running windows parallels.
I did a few tricks off youtube, which was about the screen options. Didn't do anything. Edited the .ini file, which helped, as i said above, but still not smooth. How smooth are your games?
Also, i need to make the resolution better. When i increase it, it just makes the window for the game smaller.
Also, anyway to edit the mouse buttons?
I downloaded xmouse, but I need to change the actual command.
For example, the left mouse button is for moving units and for highlighting them. I want to make the left mouse button for highlighting and right mouse button for moving. Is there anyway in the game to change this?
I just got cheated on......
The ifv and president hack.
