I used to play RA2 with the 1.0007 mod/patch and even with the patch I'd get (pretty much every game) an annoying freeze/crash JUST when things were getting good. Does the download file here somehow get around that problem?
(MAY have had something to do with ddraw? Not that the in game error ever mentioned ddraw? Can't remember the specific error, but it popped up in game and that was it - the game was history.)
