So me and some friends have original cd copies of RA2 and we wanted to use xwis for the multiplayer and everything was working fine up until we tried a custom game out, we get past the loading screen and instantly the game freezes for all of us when the match begins. Now I don't know if I'm being impatient but maybe it takes some time to load maybe? or is it something else entirely maybe? If anyone has any clues please do tell.
Also some info:
-RA2 version: 1.006
-Original cd versions
-Firewall exceptions have been made.
-Singleplayer doesn't do this, it's only in multiplayer.
-We are not using Yuri's revenge.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that we did try compatibility with xp and 98 and we also have it running as admin.
Any help would be much appreciated.
