so they dictate how you run the server for so many plus years, yet you have no reliable contact info to them, k thx.

 

I have no more dog in this fight, i'll leave it how I already put it, if cncnet5 is f2p with a ladder, i'll leave xwis and never look back, which is a shame considering I've been involved here since the day it's been available, but xwis doesn't have a bone to throw and it's being left for dead by EA.

The other CnCnet 5 developers don't want to support RA2 nor YR.

 

Olaf send me a PM if there is any use for blocking cheats from working with RA2. I'm gonna guess there isn't as people will need to be running the user patch. I can send you what I did for TS.

There are people working on it, but as RA2 is not yet freeware there are some legal issues with distributing our modifications. CnCNet was originally focused on the first C&C game and later when RA support was added it became popular. TS and RA2 were never our primary goals and supporting them depends on if there are enough interested people working on it and enough enhusiastic players to motivate the developers. For TS, Iran took the initiative to write the required game modifications which is the most challenging part of adding game support to CnCNet.

And because ra2 won't become freeware you won't ever be able to support ra2?

We can, but we can't do it like we have done with the freeware games (modify and rearrange the data freely). We'd need to ship a patcher/installer that modifies the RA2 installation with our patcher which is more traditional but more intrusive.

 

Stay tuned, though!

You were a flaming idiot who just abused everyone who ever played you. Now however you're just an annoying idiot. You were never constructively involved. Please stop posting if you have any self respect.

Good work so far. I look forward to seeing what more you guys have in store. BTW would you be able to link me to the source code of cncnet 4 and it's launcher? I'd like to include cncnet 4 into my unofficial patch in a way that it automatically launches the game ( without delay ) with cncnet connectivity.

You can do that with cncnet.ini that has zero timeout (Timeout=0 IIRC) and preset game.exe/gamemd.exe. http://cncnet.org/files/cncnet.exe is the final CnCNet 4 lancher.

 

Anyway, the source is at https://github.com/hifi-unmaintained/cncnet4 if you're interested in it.

I've edited the ini without success.

you cannot change the timeout in cncnet4 sadly, its broken because of a bug

you could make your own launcher and just use the plain wsock32.dll without cncnet.exe

Because CnCNet 5 doesn't support Red Alert 2 (yet?)

Cncnet 5 clients are custom made. With minified versions of the games and the cncnet5 custom tailored lobby per game. 

 

Support for games from TS upwards has not been added yet and most likely won't be, considering all that I've been hearing from different people involved.

Yes does a good job of locking cursor for windowed mode. So win 8 doesn't pop up behind game but lags so bad. I tried all things I did to make xwis version playable but no luck

Put this file in your game folder. It lags in windowed mode.
