I have just recently started playing Red Alert 2 again using XWIS. Having much fun reliving my adolescence. Anyway, I have downloaded an awesome map called 'War Pro V2' and successfully added it to my local RA2 directory so that it is listed when creating games. However, whenever I play this map online or in single player skirmish it crashes a few minutes in and gives an error that says the executable has failed, this doesn't happen with any other maps I have downloaded and added myself or maps that have been transferred to me by other players.

At first I thought this error could be due to the map file being faulty or something, but my friend whom I play with added the same map file and it doesn't crash for him. We both have the exact same game executable installed (from XWIS), with the same settings applied.

Anyone know what might be causing this and how to rectify it?

Many thanks in advance for any help received.  :help:
