Type hires in main menu and go in options
or edit RA2MD (video screenwidth/height) with your resolution

Make sure its RA2MD.INI and not ra2md.mix

If you have the disk and not the YR download, run this. http://xwis.net/forums/index.php/files/file/5-cc-yuris-revenge-quick-match-resolution-patch/ (For anyone searching this is useful)

The topic title has been changed by a moderator, please make sure you use good topic titles in the future.

What is a good topic title?

A good topic title should sum up the topic using a few words (usually 3-6). A member should be able to know what the topic is about without having to read it. If you need help, make sure your topic title explains the problem as well as possible.

Why use good topic titles?
- Members of the forum should know if they are interested in the topic-content
- A much bigger chance to find a member who is able to solve your problem
- The forum will look a lot better and cleaner
- Easier for others to find information later. The forum has a great search-function which depends upon good topic titles.

Examples of good topic titles
Tiberian Sun Invalid serial number
YR/RA2 QM connection problem
Main exe, slow load, cant log in, screen freezes
Black Screen when QM


Examples of bad topic titles
question
Plz help me out here
Server
Olaf plz

Download this program and place in ra2 folder and then change resolution with it:

http://blog.obelisk.ro/2010/09/resolution-fix-for-red-alert-2-yuris.html

Its really easy and fast, free and ive used this program on several computers for a few years so im pretty sure its virus-free.

it allows you go as far as 1680x1050 which is more or less the perfect resolution imo. Because if you go to much higher, if its possible. Then you will probobly run into issues on everything looking so small.

Can you check the file you are opening is under 2kb? Right click RA2MD.INI, go to properties and you will see the size listed.

If not install this anyway, thinking about it now I don't think YR has the reso patch included. Install this and run. http://xwis.net/forums/index.php/files/file/5-cc-yuris-revenge-quick-match-resolution-patch/

Open up Yuri's revenge, type in hires when you reach the main menu, and select the resolution in options by clicking on the drop down menu. If you've already typed in hires theres no need to do it again, just select the resolution after running the above file.

So you want to make it larger? lol, and Notepad doesn't seem to open ra2md.ini. Ok...

Make sure that you can see the file extensions:
Go to Windows Explorer > Organize (top-left) > Folder and search options > View (tab)
Make sure "Hide extensions for know file types" is NOT selected.

Go to your YR folder:
(To find it's location, right-click your YR icon > Properties > Shortcut (tab) > "Start in:")
Go to that folder using Windows Explorer.

Look for ra2md.ini and try to open it with Notepad.

Did Notepad open it this time?

breakurass, erm just download it, put in ra2 yr folder, choose what reso you want and then just start the game as normal. It does work, your just doing something wrong.

When you get a chance, re-send a new id and password and i'll take another look (I thought you wanted it bigger, not smaller)

The folder needed security permissions to write the file.

Right click the RA2 folder > Security > Advanced, and select the system user > giving full control, not just read and execute.
