i heard windows 10 fixed all the problems from windows 8, will it be possible to play ra2 on windows 10, windows 7 ultimate got xp function, so you can use old programs. Does windows 10 have same option?

Some people have got it to work on windows 10 no problems, others are reporting similar issues to windows 8. Let us know how you get on.

I have installed windows 10 over my windows 8.1 pro. 

 

I have had the issue when i used the win8.1 (alt+tab black screen) but these version is more stable than win10 when you pick ra2 xwis version.

 

In the win8.1 pro I just downloaded the ra2 xwis version and all it got fine (except black screen alt+tab). 

 

Since that days i discovery a single file (ddraw.dll - 14Kb) that it allow minimize mode window screen but the "trade-off" is that menu of the game become TOO TOO SLOW however, when the game start that issue disappear.

 

Windows 10 is occour so much problem with xwis version (black screen menu) and freeze video when I playing a while (about 3 a 4 minutes of the game).

 

I will decide split my OS (windows 10 + windows 7 (just ra2 game)) until someone discovery on honesty solution for those problems.

Actually the problem disappeared. I was wondering actually... can that old RA2 QM resolution patch be applied to the origin version? Where can I DL the patch actually? (not in XWIS downloads)

Going to make a RA2 windows 10 patch soon.

 

 

Edit: YR does not work on Windows 10 ( No menu buttons).

hi i am on windows 10 and sadly i have to say red alert 2 does not work on windows 10 it runs on super slow motion and you can not even exit the game you need task manager to do it. but i did some tweaks in the config.ini files for both YR and RA2 and it fixed YR but still RA 2 has problems however the slowmotion is gone but online does not work at all for RA 2 the game music is not playing at all you only have the main sound. however Yuri's revenge works fine now except that if you want to exit the game you need task manager cause it does not exit normally.

I went from W7 to W10 and unfortunately it doesn't work properly anymore. Got the game starting and all, no problem, but as soon as I start a game it lags, A LOT!.

I've tried some things (as stated in W8 thread) to solve this (added ddraw.dll) which helped a bit, but it stills lags too much to play a proper game. Also get the black screen when I press ALT TAB, but I fixed this by opening in a window.

 

So I wouldn't say Windows 10 fixed all the problems, not for me at least  :no:

My simple solution was: Install W7 (dual boot).

 

Win10 is a excellent user experience. Not so worth remain the old system operational, as a main system, because one game instead u "waste" some Gb's to keep an old game and old SO. That was my point.

Do you know that your MP client works flawlessly on it? Though the CD version doesn't.

Just FYI.

Why not?

Alt-tab is still broken isn't it?
Performance might be affected as well.

I have windows 10 on the surface pro 3.  When I go to start the game I can't see the buttons and the screen seems to lag behind one mouse click... I have tried a number of different configuration options.

Hi Guys,

I'm running RA2 under Win10. And it works fine.

 

The only Problem is that the ra2.exe hangs when ending the game.

 

You have to install it with a little help to unload the unsupported driver of the copy protection.

 

If you successfully installed the game you have to "Run as Administrator" in "Windows XP SP3" Mode. Then it works fine.

 

LAN Games work with the IPXWrapper also fine.

 

The only thing is that the game hangs when ending it within the game menu.

 

 

But can you tell me why internet games only work in the slowest resokution 640x480?

 

Regards!

Could you explain what you mean by this?

 

I have installed the game and run as administrator.  The game loads up and I can hear the sound but none of the menu buttons appear.  I can click where they would be and it goes to the next screen but no menu buttons for that screen either.

 

I should note that I am running this with the surface pro 3.  Has anyone had any success with this?

KLICK

 

You have to take the "Backup Instructions"

 

 

The issue is that the copy protection driver is no longer available/supported with Windows 10.

 

The Game itself works. So you have to take the shortcut with that "crack".

 

Regards!
