Trying to figure out if I'm allowed to use the new patch in ranked matches with all of the features enabled. I downloaded it for the extra maps and auto ss but notice it has some extra features like. A red arrow or something similiar over defense weapons which makes it hard to hide defense weapons as well as the interesting: http://xwis.net/ra2/screenshots/4633589/

 

Which i don't think that enhancement is really a advantage at all. Reason I'm even asking about this is I'm looking through all the screenshots from people and see none of the features in it.... are their 2 patches? Is one not allowed to be used for ranked for the reason i mentioned above?

 

Let me know

Wasn't in that screenshot never took an ss of it.... I've seen it 4 times.... I'll try and get a game and see if it shows up it happens when someone builds one and you are watching it.

 

Edit: the interesting was the enhanced green/red build box no one is using it in the matches :)


Olaf the feature is called hidden unit markers... it also works for defense weapons tho it's only when its hidden. if i can get a game with someone ill have them do it to get an ss of it to show you.... bigger question is do i have anything to worry about playing 2 ranked games using it before i knew about it :p

Isn't it "See Hidden Objects" in Options? Has always been there, but is disabled by default.
The "build box" isn't there by default, what patch did you install?

Olaf, I installed the "unofficial patch version 1.6.8." I was told that was the patch I needed for auto SS because it is no longer in the downloads section on xwis.

 

 

Attached is all pillboxes some hidden take a look at what it does.... it does the same on enemy bases.... first time I've ever seen a sentry or flak cannon highlighted on enemy base. Defeats the purpose of hiding.

The update is included in Red Alert 2: http://xwis.net/downloads/Red-Alert-2-Multiplayer.exe which might be easier to install than the stand-alone update. Who told you to use the unofficial patch?
The red markers should be fine.

Alright Boss, Thanks for your response ;)

Towards who recommended me downloading that.. about 4 people in the lobby + I have seen a thread on here about it. I do not remember the nicks to be honest. Let me know if something changes & for future I know to download your multiplayer .exe instead of using my disc.
